Property code: 75045

A complex of cottages that sit at the end of a private drive, located on the edge of the charming village of Kilkhampton, this is the ideal spot from which you can explore all North Cornwall and Devon.

Perfectly placed on the edge of the village of Kilkhampton which offers a choice of two traditional inns, village stores, a great selection of takeaways and easy access onto the A39. The popular seaside town of Bude is just slightly further afield and boasts a wide range of independent shops, restaurants, bars and a choice of three sandy beaches plus many more leisure facilities. Alternatively, head further along the coast on either the Cornish or Devon side and explore the rugged coastline and numerous picturesque fishing villages such as Hartland, Clovelly, Boscastle and Port Isaac. Other attractions accessible from here include Trethorne Leisure Park and Tamar Lakes offering a wealth of water sports, superb fishing and great walks.

This cute and quirky split-level cottage is ideal for couples, with exposed beams and many character features, it’s a great base from which to explore the whole of North Cornwall and Devon. Entering the cottage through the low stable door (mind your head!), you are greeted by a sunken lounge area accessed down a few steps. It’s a cosy space with comfy seating, electric wood burner effect stove, shelves filled with books and a large Smart TV. Heading back up the steps to the landing area you then continue down a couple of steps into the spacious kitchen/diner with electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge with ice compartment. A dining table and chairs makes for easy mealtimes. The bathroom has a bath with shower over and WC. We do suggest the property is better suited to the more active as the staircase up to the mezzanine level where you will find a cosy yet comfortable double bed is steep and slightly narrow.

Stepping outside there is an open area with garden furniture and charcoal BBQ. There is off-road parking for one car. Guests have access to a shared laundry room with tumble drier which also provides secure storage for wet suits surfboards, bikes etc.

Lovely property & a very clever use of a space. Compact and equip with all you need for a few days away. Bedroom was a tight squeeze & low ceiling when accessing the snug so be aware if you're tall or have access needs. Rural location was peaceful & pretty.

The Old Rectory and grounds were beautiful, we visited the calves every morning and evening in the field beyond the Haha wall whilst walking our dog.

We had a wonderful week at the Stables (19/6/23),, proper home from home. Clean and very comfortable for two. Kirkhampton is a short walk for any needs, highly recommend the steaks at the London Inn. Location was great for many attractions.

We stayed at The Stable which was in a great location for sightseeing. Lovely welcome pack and a few essentials in the kitchen, milk, tea & coffee. Kitchen had everything you needed but we ate out every day. The bathroom is a little old but very clean. The shower was lovely. The lounge area is tiny and not as cosy as we had hoped. The bedroom is alRead moreso on the small side but we found the bed very comfortable and we both slept well. The outside area is also very small but the grounds were nice. Hide

This was a beautiful little cottage in the perfect location for exploring Bude and the surrounding areas. Arrival was made really easy by the owners and a welcome basket was left with a few treats. Although very compact inside, it has everything you could need for for your stay. I would definitely recommend.
