This sympathetically converted barn is set within its own grounds and forms part of a working, organic farm with direct access onto the Dunsdon Nature Reserve. It offers guests the opportunity to explore 30 acres of woodland, including 3 lakes. Cooked breakfast can be arranged for a small extra cost by arrangement with the owner (prior to arrival). The Bude canal runs through the land and the tow path makes a very pleasant walk through unspoilt areas of SSSI and important birdwatching sites. You can also enjoy exciting cycling opportunities direct from the cottage.
The cottage is just a short drive from the breathtaking Cornish and North Devon coasts, with superb beaches at Widemouth, Sandymouth and Bude, ideal for surfing and swimming. There are many fishing villages to explore, including nearby Clovelly and Port Isaac. RHS Rosemoor and other famous gardens and historic houses are within easy reach. Guests are free to explore the farm and help with the sheep, lambs and poultry. The cottage is just 2 1/2 miles from Tamar Lakes where fishing, sailing and water sports are available, and there is golf at Holsworthy or Bude. You are very welcome to bring your own horses as there is secure DIY livery available on-site and direct access to trails and bridleways. Country sports are also available by arrangement with the owner.
The lakes offer free fishing to the residents of the cottage. Not open to the public, 2 are stocked with coarse fish including carp and roach, whilst the third offers exciting brown trout fly fishing. Shops, pub and restaurant 4 miles.
