    The facilities at Court Farm are excellent and the team that run it are very helpful. Whilst there are several units close together you have privacy and, when everyone is indoors, you can't hear your neighbours. Having farm animals on site was a really nice touch. Our little one enjoyed seeing/feeding them and the other children seemed to get lots out of it too.

For us adults, there's a nice pub across the road, fantastic cafe by the nearby weir (15 min walk) and lovely, easy two mile walk along the canal to Bude. As a centre to explore, Maramchurch is really-well positioned for access to the fabulous coastline, it's towns and secluded coves.

About the location

MARHAMCHURCH

Bude 2.5 miles; Tintagel 17.7 miles.

Marhamchurch is a fantastic base for those looking to explore the Cornish coast and is only 2.5 miles from the coastal town of Bude. This quiet village has a church at its centre and there is a very useful local shop and pub. Nearby 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.
