Spacious, semi-detached rural retreat, one of two properties at this quiet location close to the Cornish coast.

This property benefits from a lovely countryside location and is in a perfect situation for exploring the nearby Cornish coastline, including the popular resort town of Bude. Bude has a large array of shops, cafes, and restaurants, as well as several beaches and a tidal swimming pool which provides safe swimming whatever the conditions out at sea. The village of Kilkhampton is only one mile from the property and has a good range of shops and two pubs and several takeaways. Picturesque fishing villages such as Clovelly, Boscastle and Port Isaac are all also within easy reach.

This large property makes a great space for a family get together or a break away with friends. The ground floor living space is a wonderful space to relax, with its two distinct lounge areas divided by the dining area. The main lounge area is where guests will find the TV, DVD, and hi-fi, whilst the second lounge area, at the other end of the space, is perfect for relaxing and chatting over a drink. The kitchen is equally spacious and has a Rangemaster electric oven, hob, American style fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, and washer/dryer. Two staircases, at opposite ends of the house, lead to the six bedrooms. There are two double rooms which each have their own TV and en-suite shower and WC, a further double and three twin rooms. Two bathrooms each have a shower over bath and WC. Guests are welcome to bring one dog, and possibly two by arrangement, at an additional charge per dog of £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

Outside, there is an enclosed courtyard and a private raised decked area with seating and BBQ. In addition to this space, there is also a large shared lawn area with children’s play equipment and pergola seating. There is also a paddock with ponies who you may like to visit and it may even be possible to help to feed them, with the owner’s permission. Guests can also enjoy some lovely walks across the fields with excellent views across to the surrounding moorland. There is ample parking.

We loved this cottage which is really large and has a ver warm atmosphere. We were disappointed that there were no views from the windows as we were literally on a farm overlooking an old barn. It was not possible to take walks from the house unless we walked along the road. I am not sure if it might be possible to insulate the house a bit better?

Large cottage better for the group that want to cycle or explore on foot. The remoteness of the cottage means that in the evening there was no where to go and the WiFi didnt work very well.

This property provides basic accommodation with its (shared) garden as it's saving grace, which is great. The place itself is spacious and has reasonable seating but is not particularly comfortable or homely.

Ploughmans Retreat was great. It was perfect for our large family gathering with a great downstairs space which was enjoyed by all. The owners were on hand and very helpful. The shared garden space with the children's toys was an added bonus. Would definitely recommend.

We had a wonderful stay. The owners were really welcoming and happily showed our boys (and us!) for a short tour of the farm, the highlight meeting an hour old lamb.
