Lee Barton Cottage, an attractive and recently modernised end-terraced farm cottage in Morwenstow hamlet near Kilkhampton 5 miles to the beaches at Bude, North Cornwall. Duckpool National Trust seaside beauty spot & sandy beach is 2 miles by road; also reached by a pretty National Trust walk leading from the cottage. The walk will take you to sheltered Coombe Valley, a favourite with walkers, the beach being at the sea end of this beautiful valley. Spectacular rugged cliff and valley walks. It is not known whether the origin of the name of the beach (Duckpool) derives from the possible use of the venue as a place of baptism for the baptist church (where those baptised would be immersed in the duck pool- a pool formed where the valley stream enters the beach) or whether the origin lays in the presence of ducks on this naturally formed pool. The cottage itself is in a quaint character setting on a traditional family farm (beef, dairy) and opens onto the large farm gardens; large lawns and orchard, away from road traffic. Also a farm play field with goal post, swings, etc. Can stroll in the farms woods & fields. A short stroll over to the farms coarse fishing lake (fun fishing, not for serious fishermen)with tench, roach and carp (tench up to 3lbs and carp up to 10lbs), in a wooded setting- an idyllic venue for picnics.

The West Country region

Morwenstow hamlet is famous as the home of The Vicar Of Morwenstow and you can visit the old church and the Bush Inn. Nowadays the area is popular with walkers in the know, who enjoy the walking delights and scenery of Coombe Valley. Walk down the valley to Duckpool National Trust seaside beauty spot & good sandy beach. Spectacular rugged cliff and valley walks. Children seem to enjoy scrambling up the downs at Duckpool. On the edge of Coombe Valley are places of interest such as the previously mentioned historic Morwenstow Church, adjoining Rectory Farm tearooms, Morwenstows Bush Inn and slightly further afield Hatland Abbey (worth visiting, a privately owned country house and gardens with Gainsborough paintings etc). About 5 miles south is the beach resort of Bude which boasts huge classic sandy beaches- a quieter beach resort alternative to Newquay further down the coast. On the main beach at Bude is a massive and free outdoor swimming pool built into the cliffs. Boating (rowing boat hire) up Bude Canal all walk along the canal, passing the Bird Nature sanctuary, finishing the walk at Tearooms. Other attractions in Bude such as leisure centre with indoor pool and Ten Pin bowling, tennis courts, etc. Local attractions include the many quaint old villages and the Tamar Lakes (one a Nature Reserve with coarse fishing), the other lake reserved for water sports (can hire boats) childrens park play equipment such as climbing frames/swings and cafeteria.
