  • “The Shippon is part of a group of barns converted into holiday accommodation on a working farm so in the winter expect farmyard smells!”

    It has a large open plan ground floor with a well equipped kitchen. The beds were comfortable and the showers a decent size. Parking is immediately in front of the accommodation which has a dual aspect overlooking open fields to the front and a courtyard with shrubs, seating and washing lines to the rear. It’s quiet and peaceful yet only a few miles from Bude. It is accessed via typical Cornish lanes; single track road for about 2.5 miles with steep banks, high hedges and limited passing ...

    It has a large open plan ground floor with a well equipped kitchen. The beds were comfortable and the showers a decent size. Parking is immediately in front of the accommodation which has a dual aspect overlooking open fields to the front and a courtyard with shrubs, seating and washing lines to the rear. It’s quiet and peaceful yet only a few miles from Bude. It is accessed via typical Cornish lanes; single track road for about 2.5 miles with steep banks, high hedges and limited passing places but once you reach the farm you have open views over the countryside. Very pleasant stay and the farmer was friendly and welcoming.

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.
