Cottage | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 8
The surrounding countryside is totally unspoilt, some of which is uncultivated, with pretty wooded lanes and natural grassland. The nearby village of Kilkhampton (two and a half miles) where the local people are particularly friendly and helpful, offers a good range of shops including a small supermarket, pubs, a fish and chip shop; and a little way out of the village, on the road to Bude, there is a first class farm shop. Morwenstow is by the sea and is approximately 3 miles away. The coast here is quite spectacular, some of the highest cliffs in England and there are marvellous scenic walks along the coastal path and also from Gooseham to Marsland Mouth. Golf at Westward Ho!, Bude and Holsworthy. Riding one and a half miles away at Gooseham Barton; surfing at Bude and Westward Ho! and beaches within a short drive include Duckpool (3 miles), Sandymouth (5 miles) and Welcombe Mouth (4 miles). The cottage is comfortably furnished, in keeping with the style and age of the property and has a lovely restful atmosphere, (north wind does bring the occasional farmyard smell) which may lead one to imagine that Eastcott is still much the same now as it was over a hundred years ago

The West Country region
Cornwall is the most South Western part of the UK, benefitting from some of Britain's mildest climates, with the warming effects of the Gulf Stream, early springs and long lingering summers. This unspoilt County enjoys a dramatic landscape from rugged moorland to stunning beautiful golden beaches.
Cornwall has historically been intrinsically linked with outdoor activities. With some of the cleanest seas in Europe surrounding the County, it has always been popular for water-based activities especially surfing. North Cornwall, predominantly in and around Newquay has historically been home to many UK Surfing Championships.
Walkers are able to find extensive countryside to discover and can delight in the longest stretch of continuous coastline in Britain on the South West Coast Path.
This ancient and mystic Celtic County has a feeling of being a land of legend and romance. Hence artists come to Cornwall for inspiration drawn by its rugged beauty and the quality of light.
About Bude Bude has been a popular holiday destination since Victorian times. The atmosphere and charm of a traditional seaside resort are retained in harmony with modern services, quality restaurants and shops. Cornwall is a mystical kingdom, unspoilt and unsurpassed. Awesome cliffs shore up the coastline, arresting in the sheer scale of their splendour. Cornwall's heritage is still acted out in its tiny harbours, the landing of fish, mending of nets, stacking of lobster pots, an endlessly changing tapestry. In its old inns, heaving seafood platters are accompanied by tales of vast pilchard shoals, midnight brandy runs, shipwrecks and heroic rescues. Cornwall has over 300 miles of spectacular coastline with vast golden beaches, secluded coves and picturesque fishing villages. The rolling surf draws watersports enthusiasts from all over the world and the area around Bude is a great to take a holiday cottage. At Jacobstow we have a selection of hoilday cottages, so large groups could stay together here.

Thank you for your feedback.
We do ask guests to inform us of any issues as soon as possible upon arrival, allowing us to remedy them wherever possible. Sometimes guests do not want the additional hassle of allowing cleaners or workmen into their property when they are on holiday, which we do understand.
We value every customer at Toad Hall Cottages, with 98% of our guests happy to recommend us to others which is testament to that fact.
We hope that you do consider Toad Hall Cottages again in the future.
