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 fields to the Coast Path from the front gate. The cottage has been transformed without losing any charm. As you would expect, there are some low lintels (lowest 5�5�), thick uneven walls and beams. A simple cottage garden (picnic table, bench) surrounds it - the odd chicken might wander through. From the garden, porch for coats/boots; living room with TV/DVD, inglenook (electric fire), slate floor (rug) and 6�1� beams. Fitted kitchen (slimline dishwasher, microwave, cooker with induction hob) with oak worktops, window seat, drop-leaf dining table and limestone floor; smart ground-floor bathroom (suite, shower over bath) with washer-drier in cupboard. From hall, stairs up to two bedrooms, both with wood floors (rugs) � a double (5� bed) where oars have been used as beams, and one with two singles (no clothes-hanging space) and glimpse of the sea. A little gem.

About this location

The Cornwall 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

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, 2� miles. Good pony-trekking nearby; Bude, 7 miles.
