  • "We had a lovely stay at Claire's Cottage."

    The owners Roger and Brenda made us feel very welcome and there were cream teas waiting for us when we arrived. The only downside I would say was no WiFi access, but that was only because my young son was finding it hard to cope without being able to use his ipad fully - which isn't necessarily a bad thing! We used the cottage as a base to go off and explore the lovely beaches and places like Clovelly (which is a must see, just wear good walking shoes!) and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Speaking of gardens, the owners allowed us access to their own garden which is gorgeous. My son loved running around it. All in all, a wonderful restful stay.

  • "It was very nice welcome from Roger who took us around the cottage and explained where everything was situated."

    Also great to exchange memories of our younger years with him. I would have also liked to have met Mrs Dunstan as she was the contact person for the property to say how much we enjoyed her biscuits and the beautiful garden she maintained.

    Dear Ann, I apologize for not meeting you when you were here, I did meet your husband briefly, It had been a rather busy week when you were here at Claires Cottage, however pleased you enjoyed your stay. Brenda . . Property Owner

  • "We were really disappointed with our stay at Claire's Cottage."

    The cleanliness of the cottage was well below expectations and we had to clean it as soon as we arrived, particularly the bathroom, kitchen and floors. We did explore moving to other accommodation but everything was fully booked, therefore we tried to spend as little time in the cottage as possible. The couple who own the accommodation were very welcoming and did provide a homemade cream tea on arrival, however the basics were not right - cleanliness. The washing machine and tumble dryer were thick with dust and the whole cottage needed a thorough clean. We would not return to this accommodation in the future.

    Thank you for your feedback, we value customer feedback and use it to work together with the owner to assure this type of situation does not arise again. I would have recommended you contact us at the time of your stay as we always utilise all resources possible to rectify any problems on a guests stay but if you would now like to discuss your comments further please contact us on 01244 345 700 (option 3, option 3) Property Owner

The property

Kilkhampton 2.5 miles.

This cosy and delightful single-storey annexe is attached to the owners’ home and Bed and Breakfast, in the small hamlet of Stibb, 2.5 miles from the village of Kilkhampton in Cornwall.

This welcoming cottage is ideally located for touring the north east of Cornwall and the stunning coastline and beaches that can be found there.

As soon as you arrive at Claire’s Cottage you are instantly taken aback by the magnificent gardens which surround the cottage and the owners’ adjoining property.

Enter into the cottage and you immediately feel at home with comfortable furnishings throughout.

The open plan living area with a kitchen, dining area and sitting area are well-positioned to look out on to the garden, and two lovely bedrooms and a shower room complete the accommodation.

Outside leading out from the sitting room is a private garden with furniture looking out onto open farmland, a perfect place to relax at any time of day.

Only 1.5 miles away is Sandymouth Bay with its stunning open expanse of golden sand that stretches at low tide as far as the eye can see.

Sandymouth is ideal for surfers, beachcombers and walkers with breathtaking walks in both directions from the bay, and children will love the beach with clean sand, rocks to climb and rock pools to explore.

Kilkhampton just 2.5 miles away is a small village with a few shops and two pubs both of which serve good food, whilst Bude, one of Cornwall's major resorts is only four miles away.

With so many attractions close to hand makes Claire’s Cottage a lovely quiet base that can be enjoyed all year round.

About the location

KILKHAMPTON

Bude 4 miles.

Kilkhampton is an historic Cornish village, 4 miles from the popular Victorian seaside resort of Bude, one of Cornwall’s premier holiday locations. With its old church, village shops and atmospheric village pubs, Kilkhampton is a lovely place to relax after a hard day exploring the stunning beaches and spectacular coastal scenery for which the area is famous. Bude’s beaches attract surfers from all over the country and when conditions are right you’d be hard pushed to find better surf. When the tide is out, miles of golden sand and hundreds of rock pools keep visitors occupied for hours. The South West Coast Path, and many other rights-of-way winding over the clifftops and through lush green fields looking out over the sea, make this area a haven for walkers and lovers of the open countryside. For those who prefer staying closer to home, a good shopping centre and a selection of pubs, two clubs and restaurants are on offer. Bude canal, a registered nature reserve, passes through the town, and rowing a boat along its calm waters or walking the towpath among the beautiful (and friendly) water fowl that live among the reeds is a great way to spend an hour or two. Within the area there are also 2 golf courses, an indoor swimming pool, bowling alley at the leisure centre. A perfect location for all that North Cornwall has to offer.
