  • "This was an ideal base for our 2 week holiday."

    It's spacious and is well equipped with everything you might need. The bed was comfortable and everything was in good working order. The parking space at the side of the cottage was ideal and big enough for 2 cars. The outside space is very nice and ideal if you have a dog. Barney, our Cockerpoo, was able to have a run round the grass every day when we came back from our trips out. Overall a very enjoyable stay .

  • "This is a spacious and very well equipped cottage in the quiet village of STIBB."

    Walking distance to the beach, but better to drive if have young children as quite a steep hill. Plenty of NT parking and the beach is splendid. Lots of walks from the cottage and nearby. Bude close by and can shop for most things in nearby Kilkhampton. I would highly recommend this cottage and Deborah's communications we're superb. One word of warning though, if you are tall, mind your head, some low doorways. Would love to stay again.

    Thanks for the lovely feedback - we'd love to have you stay again! Property Owner

  • "The cottage is in a great location."

    Quiet but not far from Bude, & the Atlantic highway to travel easily into Devon or further down into Cornwall. Overall the cottage was very comfortable. Beds are lovely and comfy. Our dog enjoyed exploring the garden. The only slight negative would be the main storage heater downstairs doesn’t appear to work so it was quite chilly downstairs without lighting the wood-burner. Upstairs perfectly cosy.

    Thank you for your feedback, I am so sorry that the heater wasn't working and would have got that sorted for you had I known. Property Owner

  • "Really lovely cottage."

    Everything you could possibly need in the kitchen. Deb the owner provided lots of information before our stay and was easily contactable. The garden was lovely for us but sadly our poor old pooch found the steps a bit tricky.

  • "Fantastic cottage that catered for all our needs."

    We were very impressed with the facilities such as bbq, fire pit, body boards and how well equipped the kitchen was! Very cosy and comfy, all slept great. Very clean throughout, following covid guidelines. Only issue we found was the shower was not great pressure (electric shower), but there is a bath so used the bath to wash hair etc. We would definitely recommend and would love to visit again. Thank you!

    (some door frames are quite low, but you do get to remember this). Had a wonderful stay.

  • "The cottage was brilliant."

    We had an extremely comfortable two weeks there. The kitchen was the best equipped of any cottage we have used before which was really appreciated in this year where going out for meals is less easy to do . The property is spacious and good for larger families or a group of friends with four bedrooms and two bathrooms The Cottage is very well situated to visit many interesting places on the north Cornwall coast and also enabled us to set off on foot to the beach and onto the SW coastal path. We would be very happy to book again in the future

    It had everything and more. We particularly loved the quality of the mattress in the master bedroom, the most comfortable we have ever had in a holiday home. Perfect size for our family of 6. The games where fab too. Loads to choose from.

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.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

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.
