Bennetts Court Cottages

Bennetts Court Holiday Cottages is a small group of five, situated on the owners' 11-acre site on the edge of the small Cornish village of Whitstone, near Bude. Converted from stone and cob barns, these Cornish cottages are approached along a private tree-lined drive and provide a peaceful escape to the countryside, where there are far-reaching views across fields grazed by a handsome herd of alpacas. On site there is plenty to occupy guests, from a dip in the outdoor swimming pool to a cuddle with Benjamin bunny in pet’s corner, or a social BBQ with other guests to a table tennis game with the family. Each cottage has its own garden area, from which you can enjoy a cuppa in the sun whilst watching the children play on the swings against a backdrop of rural tranquillity, planning a day on the beach. Alternatively, head out to discover the majesty of this wonderful region. Visit the gorgeous beaches at Widemouth Bay or Bude, and spend the day rock pooling, body boarding, surfing or walking the coastal path. The local Camel Trail is a long-distance path ideal for cycling, and the stretch between Wadebridge and Padstow is particularly popular. Why not take a trip out to sea on a boat, catch a foot passenger ferry over to Rock from Padstow or frequent the numerous farm shops, country inns and quaint Cornish villages, all of which are on the doorstep of this cosy Whitstone cottage?
