P366 - Carrows Stable
Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
a detached, 'upside down' cottage with superb sea views down Morwenstow combe, converted from stables in a quiet spot at the top of the long drive to the large well-kept gardens of the old vicarage, built by Rev. Hawker (who introduced Harvest Festivals and help for shipwrecked mariners); the vicarage's chimneys are models of towers of churches he knew. Footpath to the coast. Excellent tea rooms at the top of the drive and ¼ mile to good food pub. In front of the cottage is your own garden (church fête held here and in vicarage gardens on 3 August). Three stone steps up to entrance. Inside, slate-floored hall, partly wood-panelled with lime-washed walls. Downstairs twin bedroom with en suite bathroom (suite plus hand-shower) and French windows to footpath. Upstairs, living/dining room (TV/DVD) with wood floor and art deco low arched windows (fabulous valley-sea views); fitted kitchen in Shaker hues (dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, freezer, larder fridge); two bedrooms – a double with small en suite shower-room (suite) and Velux window, and a double (6' bed) with en suite bathroom (suite with roll-top bath plus hand-shower). Use of three-quarter-size billiard room (by arrangement) in owner's house. Sleeps maximum of 6, including babies. An excellent conversion, in exceptionally beautiful surroundings.

The West Country region
Cornwall's north coast: from the river Camel north to Bude and on to Morwenstow and the highest cliffs in the West Country, it is a mixture of great cliffs and beaches. Walking (coast path) and bird-friendly cliffs (usually no road near): peregrines possible. Great sand/surf beaches at Polzeath, Trebarwith, Widemouth Bay, Bude and Sandy Mouth; sandy coves at Port Gaverne, Bossiney, Crackington Haven, Duckpool, and others less accessible; Rock, also sandy, is the place for watersports, including sailing on the Camel estuary; very fine golf course (St Enodoc); mini-fjords at Port Quin and Boscastle. Port Isaac is very pretty round its cliff-enclosed harbour.
The well-worth-riding Camel Trail cycleway (bicycles for hire) follows the river Camel from Bodmin Moor to Padstow. Pencarrow is a beautiful house with wonderful garden. Tintagel has a ruined castle (King Arthur's?) on a wild headland. St Juliot church was restored by Thomas Hardy and 'a pair of blue eyes' nearly fell down a Crackington cliff. Bodmin Moor, its highest hills quite mountainous, is only a little way inland and Blisland, on its northern edge, is one of Cornwall's prettiest villages - makes a change from sea: so does lovely Lanhydrock (see Cornwall's 'Med'). Not far to Eden (see South Cornwall).
Morwenstow: high hamlet with fascinating church (legendary 19th cent. vicar), good food pub, acclaimed tea rooms, at the head of a combe to the sea (cliffs). Close to the highest cliffs in Cornwall (good walking, birdwatching). Nat. Trust owned cove beach, 2½ miles. Good pony-trekking nearby; Bude, 7 miles.

"Perfect base for coastal walking"
The friendly owner Gill, who runs an excellent bed and breakfast from the same site, greeted us. She had provided a plate of delicious homemade scones, jam and clotted cream, a lovely touch. All three… More
Thank you so much for your wonderful comments - I will pass them on to Gill as I am sure she will be delighted too. I am so glad that you enjoyed your holiday and I hope that we will see you again.
