Property code: 45084

A delightful cottage nestled in the north Cornish countryside and close to beautiful beaches making this is a perfect retreat for couples.

Nestled in the grounds of an old carpentry workshop, this cosy little cottage makes for an unforgettable romantic escape for two. Just 3 miles from the North Devon coast, you can soak up the best of both coast and countryside from this adorable bolthole. The white and pastel grey exterior is a delightful sight amongst the pretty flowers and lanterns which bedeck the cottage.

Complete cosiness and relaxation are at the forefront of the design. The neutral grey tones continue through into the interior, creating a soothing open-plan space. Subtle hints of character and bright pops of colour can be found around every corner - striking pieces of artwork, cushions and mosaic glass windows. With the gorgeous granite breakfast bar being all that separates the living and kitchen space, it's a very social space from which to snuggle up and enjoy quality time with your loved one. With its pink rose bushes and vintage table and chairs, the garden (also referred to as the ‘lookout') is perfect for dining alfresco and watching the sunset over the hills.

Being so close to the ocean, you can simply pack a picnic and a blanket and enjoy a day at the seaside. Bude, with its golden sand, canal and bustling town is only 3 miles from the cottage and is well worth a visit during your stay; try your hand at surfing, explore the shops, or just lie back on the sand and soak up the sun. Slightly further afield you'll uncover mythical Tintagel and its ruins, bursting with history and legend.

Excellent location and the cottage is quite modern and upto date. Single chair and sofa could do with up dating as you can tell they have been sat on a lot. I know it's a wet room but it would be good to have a shower curtain, and there is space, as had to keep taking everything out when showering.

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.
