Property code: CORYR

Situated in a peaceful, rural position, this one bedroom property is one of five located on a 267 acre dairy farm in the heart of the Cornish countryside.

In the stillness of early morning, climb the steps to your own private meadow and take in the spectacular scenery. The views are truly remarkable as you can see past the grassy hilltops of the cliff edge, over the sparkling ocean and to Lundy Island in the distance. Now is the time to get painting and capture the remote beauty of the Cornish coast.

Clean lines and bright white combine to provide a simple yet sleek interior. A dreamy atmosphere engulfs the cottage slowing that feeling of absolute relaxation. Let sunlight flood and air flow into the house through the French doors while you put your feet up and enjoy a steaming mug of tea on the cosy sofas. As the day wears on, take a buffet lunch out onto the secluded patio enclosed by twisted fencing and pretty shrubbery.

Roam up the South West Coast Path, past Ronald Duncan's writing hut, and step down onto the sandy beach of Welcombe Mouth (3 miles) to dip your toes in the shallow waters and stand on the borderline between Cornwall and Devon or chose to walk south along the Hartland Heritage Coast. Surfer culture is threaded through the town of Bude (9 miles) so test your skills or lie on the sandy beaches and watch as local pros take to the waves. Climb the steep cobbled streets of Clovelly (12 miles away).

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

We enjoyed our first visit last year do much we came back for our anniversary. Such a well presented cottage with all you need from a location for any weather, even staying in! Great for dogs with a variety of walks from the farm. We will definitely return, loved it.

Loved our stay at the retreat on the Cory farm! Really good quality furniture - own garden for the dogs to run around and really comfortable! Would definitely recommend to stay there!

A lovely, comfortable place to stay, welcoming and fully equipped for us and our dogs. Very clean and well organised accommodation, located in a great location for walking, either from the farm or with a short drive.

The cottage was just o.k, no frills and tbh not very welcoming. We must point out that the reason we booked here was for the secure paddock for our elderly, deaf & blind dogs. We found out to our cost that this wasnt the case at all! We took them into the paddock to discover too late that it lead into another field with a bull the far side and the Read morebiggest, deepest cow pats weve ever seen. After eventually getting our dogs to safety, we then spent 2 hours cleaning them up. Hide

Great location, offering benefits of both North Cornwall and North Devon coasts. Very peaceful and easily accessible but follow Bush Inn and Rectory Tea Room signs and not the Satnav.

Its called the Retreat and thats exactly what is is.. even though adjoined to the farm house we were given total privacy. Quiet and peaceful apart from the cockerel who loved to visit us by the back fence, this added to the whole atmosphere.. lovely. Ideal for dogs, our pups loved it and the beaches around Bude were fantastic, especially SandymouthRead more.. The super king size bed was fantastic, so big and comfy. 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.
