    “Wonderful cottage to relax in with our family & 2 dogs”

    - Mrs Buxton, June 2021

The property

This delightful detached cottage is set in the small hamlet of Stibb, 2 miles from the village of Kilkhampton and just under 5-miles from Bude.

Boasting plenty of character, Elm Cottage is an idyllic escape for families and friends looking to explore the stunning coastline and beaches of north east Cornwall.

After a tiring day seeing the area, curl up beside the woodburning stove and flick through the Smart TV to find a great film, or gather in the main sitting room/diner to plan for the next adventure.

You’ll have no trouble preparing delicious meals in the well-equipped kitchen, appointed with a range of appliances and an array of cooking equipment, while there is also a handy utility cupboard with a washing machine and tumble dryer.

Upstairs is occupied by four well-presented bedrooms, including the master king-size double with Velux windows and exposed beams looking down on you, giving the room a very traditional feel.

There is also a double, twin and single room, offering guests plenty of choice and flexibility.

Positioned at the rear of the property, there is a patio garden with seating and a barbecue, along with a shed which can be used for bike and surfboard storage, so on a warm summer evening, make use of the barbecue and a rustle up a feast amidst your loved ones in the sun.

There are plenty of beaches, but less than two miles from Elm Cottage is the National Trust owned Sandymouth Bay, a fantastic sandy beach which is often much quieter than the other main beaches is a great spot to set up camp for a beach day, let the little ones paddle or simply enjoy making sandcastles.

The pretty seaside town of Bude sits just over four miles away and comes with a plethora of things to see and do, from its wealth of quaint pubs, shops and cafés to the renowned surfing beaches to make the most of.

Be sure to venture along the South West Coastal Path to experience the unspoilt beauty of the Cornish coastline with beautiful and rugged scenery.

With the quintessentially Cornish villages of Boscastle and Port Isaac not too far away as well, there is so much to do from Elm Cottage.

About the location


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.
