Cottage | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 12
Recommended. Ideal for both large or smaller groups. 'The Wagon Linney' is situated near Kilkhampton village, 5 miles from the beaches at Bude, North Cornwall. Under 2 miles to Duckpool beauty spot and beach. Lovely National Trust footpath walk leading from farm, through Coombe Valley and down to Duckpool beach. Bude beach resort has many holiday attractions, a favourite for surfers; free huge open air beach swimming pool, golf course, leisure centre, boating on Bude canal etc. A rugged coastline, miles of beaches and coastal walks. Try the 2 miles plus walk from Sandymouth beach (an excellent sandy beach 3 miles away) along the various beaches to Bude or choose the cliff top option. 'The Wagon Linney' is a terraced stone house in a pretty rural setting on a 300 acres working farm (beef and dairy), at the top of the farm's driveway. The house was converted from an old 18th century stone barn, the owners having taken great care to preserve the original character of the building (exposed beams etc) and to provide appealing accommodation. Own large front garden. Farm play field with goal post, swings, etc. Approx a 5 minutes stroll to free fishing on the farm's 2 ponds. One pond (approx 66 yards long) was restocked with coarse fish during 2010 (tench, golden rudd & carp). Tench up to 3lbs and carp up to 10lbs. Fun fishing (not for serious fishermen).The 2nd pond, dating back to medieaval times, was originally used as a carp pond by local monks in the 12th century is one of the oldest in the country (featured on a T.V. programme) & is now a nature sanctuary, often hosting migratory birds such as ducks. What makes the ponds so attractive is that they are in a wooded setting, making a lovely venue for picnics, fishing, or just to enjoy the scenery. For the more energetic minded, walk across the adjacent field (with panoramic views over the countryside) along the footpath through the farm's 13 acres of woodland. The cottage may appeal to 2 families sharing because there are 2 staircases, as described below, each leading solely to its own first floor bedrooms-providing each family with privacy. Cot & High Chair. Linen inclusive. Central heating and electric inclusive. Own adjacent parking spaces for 4 cars. No pets. From Ist staircase- Bedroom 1 has 1 double bed with en-suite shower room with shower unit, washbasin & toilet. Bedroom 2 has 1 double bed with en-suite shower room with shower unit, washbasin and toilet. From 2nd staircase- Bedroom 3 has 1 double bed. Bedroom 4 has bunk beds. Bedroom 5 has 2 single beds.

About this location
The Cornwall 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.
