Lovely property! Beautiful views from the balcony. There was also a patio area but we didn't use that so much. The 'upside down' house was beautifully kept and really sweet. Sylvia was a great host and left us a pint of milk and some lemon cake on our arrival which was really thoughtful! Great shower, comfortable bed, full size fridge freezer and cRead moreooker (although we didn't use the oven and only used the hob once!!). Great stay and would recommend and go back for another holiday :) Hide

A lovely, comfortable cottage that benefits from being an upside down house. The sunsets from the balcony are beautiful. The owner is very friendly and welcoming. A lovely location for getting to the beach or to explore the countryside.

Having stayed at the Granary four times, we tried the Duck House. Fantastic property. Great layout and really spacious. We love the farm and Sheila is always contactable for anything ( including places to visit). Her cakes are delicious and we always feel at home there. Will definitely keep returning. Beautiful location and soooo quiet ! Our dogs lRead moreove the walks in the farm fields ( and stay on their leads so as not to worry the sheep or cows ). You should try it. 2 miles from Bude beaches. Hide

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
