Property code: 75045

A complex of cottages that sit at the end of a private drive, located on the edge of the charming village of Kilkhampton, this is the ideal spot from which you can explore all North Cornwall and Devon.

This quirky, romantic one-bedroom split-level cottage with period features is reached via a private drive on the edge of the historic village of Kilkhampton, and is just half a mile from pubs and shops. It's also within 5 miles of lovely beaches, gorgeous coastal walks and the picturesque landscape of the Hartland Cornwall Heritage Coast. This is a delightful, welcoming cottage to come back to after a day exploring this beautiful corner of North Cornwall and its dramatic coastline.

This charming stone-built cottage is part of a Grade II listed building that was once a rectory and is now a comfortable, cosy hideaway. The kitchen/diner and comfy lounge with a woodburner-effect electric fire are both accessed via a few steps down, and the comfy bedroom on the mezzanine floor that overlooks the lounge area, is reached via a traditional staircase. The pretty outside area with garden furniture and a charcoal BBQ is a great spot for enjoying relaxing al fresco evening meals after a busy day exploring this beautiful part of Cornwall. There's a laundry room and a storage area for bicycles, surfboards and wetsuits that is shared with the three other properties on the complex, and one vehicle can be parked off-road.

The property is just 4 miles from the resort of Bude, with its gorgeous sandy beaches, secret coves and legendary surfing waves. There's also a range of breathtaking walks to be enjoyed: the South West Coast Path, 4 miles away, takes you past spectacular cliff formations, wrecks at low tide and the remains of the former tin industry of Cornwall. The charming picture-postcard village of Clovelly is just 11 miles from the property and a little further afield, 23 miles away, is the magical Tintagel of Arthurian legend.

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

Cottage is in perfect location for easy access to walks, the coast, Bude and beaches. Kilkhampton is superb village with pubs, Spar and Co op. Plus a couple of takeaways. Little Pig cafe only a couple of mins by car, really good for Breakfast. London Inn pub very friendly, do good meals. Cottage is bijou, but we found it adequate. Layout leaves litRead moretle space for bed and the lounge area is down a couple of steps. You do have to be very careful on the stairs and mind you dont hit your head. Hide

The accommodation in The Stables is cleverly organised and we had everything that we needed. The mezzanine bedroom would not suit people who find steep stairs difficult but, overall, the property is great for a couple. The location of the property is ideal for those who want to enjoy the beaches and coastal walks of North Cornwall but it is also poRead moressible to access the North Devon area for walking, sightseeing and cycling, particularly along the Tarka Trail.

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.
