Located on a quiet country lane in the picturesque village of Poughill near Bude in north Cornwall, Fisherton Cottage is a charming double fronted property with oodles of character.
Tastefully presented to make the most of its original features - beamed ceilings, slate floors, an elegant stained glass window and an open range in the dining room – this cottage is a happy combination of traditional and current styles, creating a timeless appeal.
The cosy sitting room is the perfect place to unwind, with a welcoming wood burning stove and an interesting selection of books for guests to enjoy.
Go through to the dining room and you are greeted by a lovely farmhouse table and the open range, which can be used as an open fire during winter bookings.
The kitchen provides access to the garden and is adjoined by a handy utility room.
On the first floor, soothing pastel shades and period pieces of furniture create homely bedrooms in which to rest weary heads.
A delightful feature of this property, the pretty and enclosed cottage garden offers the perfect sun spot for morning coffees or summer evening barbecues… and when you fancy an evening off cooking duties, an excellent dog-friendly and foodie village pub is just moments from the cottage.

About the location
Tintagel 17 miles.
Bude is a fabulous coastal town that once visited you will want to come back to time and time again. Bude has something for everyone, great beaches for relaxing, and building sandcastles on, rockpools for investigating at low tide and cafes to watch it all from. The rolling waves are great for surfing all year round, and the footpaths by the restored canal or on the North Cornwall coastal path offer you a superb opportunity to explore and appreciate the outstanding countryside. Bude also has a superb golf course, indoor swimming pool, bowling alley/indoor play area and Heritage Centre at Bude Castle. It also has a good selection of local shops, supermarkets, cafes, pubs, restaurants and excellent Information Centre. Within a short drive are the remains of a huge iron age hill fort at Warbstow Bury, from where panoramic views can be seen. For days out, take the coast road north to see the lonely lighthouse above the sea at Hartland Point or walk or ride a donkey down the steep and cobbled village street (no cars allowed) of beautiful Clovelly to the harbour and the pub far below. Follow the coast in the other direction and there's the little cove of Crackington Haven, Boscastle, King Arthur's castle at Tintagel, Doc Martin's Port Wenn at Port Isaac and yet more great surfing beaches at Polzeath.
