Beautifully decorated with close attention to detail, this picturesque cabin offers unique accommodation in a relaxing rural location surrounded by wildlife and livestock.

Fox's Folly is the perfect location for those who seek a relaxing, nature-filled, rural escape to the countryside. Situated within a tranquil farmstead occupied by wildlife and livestock, this detached cabin boasts a modern home-from-home interior with idyllic views of the countryside for miles.

Whether dining alfresco on the spacious decking in the evening or under the wooden pergola draped in climbing plants as the sun sets, it's no surprise that this rustic cabin is popular for guests in the summertime. The open-plan living area is just as sought after; the white-washed exposed beams, vaulted ceilings and wooden flooring create a stylish, airy feeling within the cabin. The living area is decorated with brightly-coloured knick-knacks whilst the bedrooms are littered with antique furniture that both give this property a chic yet comfortable finish.

Jump in the car for a short drive to the town of Bude and get a bite to eat at one of its many pubs, inns and restaurants before walking under a mile to Summerleaze Beach to try your hand at surfing. If you fancy something that involves a little less energy, take a trip to the famous fishing village of Padstow that is less than 45 miles away and have a go at crabbing, something sure to keep everyone busy for hours. A 24-mile drive will take you to explore the famous tale of King Arthur at Tintagel, or even to the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic at Boscastle.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

This lovely little cabin is cosy, warm & well equipped. Set in the grounds of the very friendly owners' house it was a peaceful & idyllic bolthole for a long weekend with my daughter (2 double bedrooms made it perfect).

Foxes folly was a peaceful and relaxing cabin, away from the hustle and bustle, which was lovely. It is a10 min drive from the nearest town (Holsworthy) but you wouldnt know that. There is plenty of out door space for kids to run around, including a swing (which my 70yr old dad had a go on) and a tree house. We would stay again.

The property was charming but much smaller than it looked.

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.
