Kilkhampton the nearest village is only 2 1/2 miles away and offers a local butchers, grocery shops, post office, two pubs, pizza, fish and chip shop, chinese takeaway, farm shop, and a few more so if you don't wish to go into Bude or other large towns, you can find everything you need in the local village. Nearby are the towns of Bideford, Padstow, Camelford, Wadebridge, Clovelly, Crackington Haven, Bideford and many more all within an easy drive.. The Eden project is about an hours drive away. Being situated in North Cornwall on the borders of North Devon, means there is easy access along the Atlantic Highway either north into Devon or South into Cornwall with all the attractions on offer in this wonderful part of the country.

Location description from owner

The England region

There isn't a better illustration of North Cornwall's diversity in landscape than that of the ruggedness of Bodmin Moor and its proximity of the lush Tamar Valley. In just a few miles the big sky and big panoramas of the of the high ground give way to the tranquil blooming oasis of the strawberry fields and meandering creeks while at the same time revealing some of Cornwall's best kept secrets. Once being one of the country's leading mining areas, means it has left behind the architecture and history of affluence and good times. Ancient stones dedicated to forgotten Cornwall Kings and holy wells, offer an insight into the human habitation of some of the wildest parts of this country 6000 years ago. Prosperous towns, historical sights, sandy beaches, rugged cliff tops, tranquil lanes and much more, show what a diverse area of this country Cornwall has to offer. Worth a visit for anyone as it offers something for ever all tastes.

Bude

Bude has a very special charm of its own, a compact and bijou town with shops, restaurants, beaches, a golf course, and above all a warm and friendly welcome. With diverse landscapes from the rugged cliff top walks to the serene canal towpaths from Bude town itself. It offers wide long stretches of golden sandy beach with some of the best surfing in Cornwall. Located just off the main A39 otherwise known as the Atlantic Highway, it offers great access to many of the other interesting and beautiful North Cornwall and North Devon seaside resorts as well as the inland awe inspiring Bodmin Moor only 30 minutes away.Weather you want a sports/action packed holiday, a quiet tucked away from it all break or a beach holiday, it is all available in and around the local area.Nearby towns include, Padstow, now probably more famous for its TV chef, Rick Stein who has various restaurants and shops in this working harbour village. Across the waters from Padstow is Rock, accessed by a ferry or by road, you can visit the elite beach resort of Rock, now known as the holiday destination for some of the Royals in recent years. Rock also has the famous church of St Enodoc which was once completely buried by sand with only its steeple top visible. The top class golf course of St Enodoc is also located here, next to the church . Wadebridge has a wonderful 15th Centuary bridge crossing the Camel estuary leading the to camel trail which is a flat walk or cycle route between Bodmin and Padstow. Wadbridge hosts the Corwnall show in June and the Folk festival in August. Further north from Bude, you can visit the cobbled privately owned seaside village of Clovelly which has no traffic and still uses donkeys and carts to take goods up and down the village walkways. Only a few miles North of Bude you enter North Devon where you can visit the unspoilt village and area of Hartland and Hartland point with its contrasting moors and delightful wooded valleys, the rugged cliffs rise from the hidden sandy coves. This is just a sample of some of the wonderful towns and villages within an easy drive of Bude. Research of the area on the internet can provide you with an array of information which is far more detailed and will not fail to entice you into this area and the best place to be located to visit these towns and villages is Bishops converted chapel. Go on try it.

“One of the best places we've stayed”

Reviewed 6 Jun 2013

A most wonderful property, unique, full of character, with every home comfort you could possibly think of. The beds were the most comfortable we had ever slept in.Would be marvellous at any time of year-we stayed when the weather was good, but it would be so cosy and relaxing in Winter, It was an absolute pleasure to stay in this house - our family ranged from 8 years old to 74 and we all loved it. The cream tea awaiting our arrival after a very long journey was particularly welcome! We only wished we could have stayed longer and very much look forward to visiting again in the future. Would recommend to all.

“An enchanted stay at Bishops”

Reviewed 11 Sep 2011

We are regulars at Bishops and thoroughly enjoy our breaks here. The accommodation is first class in our opinion. The Chapel has a warm welcoming feeling and set in such a tranquil location you can't fail to have a relaxing stay. The interior décor and attention to detail is magnificent. Don't worry about the weather, if its sunny use the lovely patio but if its raining don't worry just light the gorgeous log fire pour a glass of wine and gaze into those flames. Summer and winter we have stayed at Bishops and can say it is the best holiday let we have ever stayed in.

“Highly recommended”

Reviewed 22 Aug 2011

Sympathetic conversion, great thought has gone into keeping period details while providing every modern convenience. As good outdoors as indoors. Super clean. Perfect for 2 people to use the kitchen. Peaceful location. Highly recommended.

“Quirky, Well Maintained, High Standards - a home from home”

Reviewed 22 Aug 2011

Stayed at this delightful cottage for a week at the start of August 2011 with a 5yr old and 18mth old. Bundles of character mixed with all the mod cons including the little extras such as the highchair, cot (if needed) and stairgate which if you have young children can make a huge difference to ones holiday. Aga was wonderful. Perfect location for exploring the whole of Cornwall and Devon. In a nutshell, pretty much perfect for us.

Thanks for your lovely comments, I am glad you enjoyed staying at Bishops and the use of the stair gate and high chair helped make your holiday slightly easier. Maybe we can look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
