The Granary Cottage on Stoneleigh Knowle Estate is a spacious 2 bedroomed stone cottage.

We spent a wonderful bank holiday weekend at the Granary with two children and our dog. It is in a perfect location, as it feels like you are in the middle of the country while being really close to all the amenities. Rebecca could not have been more friendly and helpful too, her tip about the quirky cinema nearby was fantastic for the one rainy day we had. The cottage was decorated to a high standard and we all slept soundly in the very comfortable beds.

"Relaxed and beautiful stay"
Stayed at the Granary in a very sunny week in May, we had an amazing time. The Granary has all the comfort you could want and is located out from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to all amenities, the surrounding grounds are pretty and it hard not fall in love with North Cornwall. It's only a short drive to the nearest beach and Bude is only 10 minutes away. Rebecca is very helpful and made us feel really welcome, giving us some great suggestions of places to visit. Its peaceful and quiet, came back home feeling very relaxed and look forward to going back again.
