We had a fantastic holiday thanks to the owners of the cottage Philip and Roxanne. They made sure the cottage was so clean and welcoming. Fantastic location and them both making sure we had everything we need. Great place for both familys and couples to stay. Our dog Jessie made to feel welcome and she loved all the open space to run around.

Kitts Cottge is delightful, a mix of ancient thick walls, comfortable beds, fluffy white towels and a huge, separate utility room. The owners live next door, and want their guests to be comfortable and happy. It is situated not far from shops and places to eat, and is close to beaches and Cornish walks. A five star reference from us, a splendid plaRead morece to relax. Hide

We have just returned from our fourth stay in this gem of a cottage, so that says a lot.

Fantastic stay at Kitts Cottage. Both Roxanne and Philip were so accommodating, the cottage and surrounding garden are immaculate. Attention to detail is everything. The views from the farm and seeing the animals made the kids week. Easy drive into Bude for lovely days outs.
