Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4

Key Info
  • Beach / lakeside relaxation
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Car advised
  • No pets allowed

Like Baby Bear's porridge, this 17th cent., thatched, detached, Grade II listed cottage several fields back from the sea is 'just right'. It is 200 yards from the 13th cent. pub at Morwenstow which serves excellent local produce, and there is access over the fields to the coastal footpath from the front gate. The cottage has been completely transformed without losing any charm. As you would expect, there are some low door lintels (lowest 5'5”), thick uneven cob walls and exposed ceiling beams. A simple cottage garden (table/chairs) surrounds it - the odd chicken might wander through. From the garden, porch for coats/boots; living room with TV/DVD, inglenook (electric fire), original Delabole slate floor (rug) and 6'1” beams. Fitted kitchen (slimline dishwasher, microwave, cooker with induction hob) with oak worktops, butler sink, window seat, drop-leaf dining table and English limestone floor; smart ground-floor bathroom (suite plus bath-shower) with washer-drier in cupboard. From hall, stairs up to two bedrooms, both with floorboards (rugs) – a double (5' bed) where oars have been used as beams, and one with two singles and a glimpse of the sea (no clothes-hanging space). A little gem.

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).

Bude

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.
