    A really lovely spacious cottage in a very quiet location which we would definitely visit again. Only a short drive from many different coastal resorts. Great having both an ensuite bathroom for the downstairs bedroom and a shared bathroom for those upstairs.

    Lovely big old farmhouse with big rooms, very quiet, yet easy to access hartland, bude, tintagel, and west to port Isaac as not far from A39. Big well-equipped kitchen, very clean, lovely comfy sofa, warm heating if required. Two downsides - I wished it had wifi for Netflix, music, planning walks, checking bus times, tide times, things to do etc as the mobile signal was bad. The upstairs shower (a triton electric) was terrible - low pressure, lots of the water leaked down the hose and what did come out was a trickle in random directions as the holes were part-clogged with black mould. Downstairs one better but I still missed a decent power shower, especially after a long day on the coast path. Would be perfect for family or friends travelling together otherwise.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Many thanks for your feedback. The shower head has been replaced.

    Fantastic cottage. Spacious and with lots of character. Well provided for even down to games, books and puzzles. Well located for access to towns on the North Cornwall coast. Must have transport though.

    Lovely cottage, spacious and well equipped. Ideal for family holiday. Quiet country location with character. Excellent location for exploring area around Bude. We loved the homeliness of the cottage just watch out for low beam of front door.
