    Beehive cottage is absolutely beautiful, it is clean spacious and full of character, beautifully decorated with original features but with all the modern fixtures. The cottage is set in a lovely location, just 10 minutes drive to sandymouth bay where our daughter was staying. It was well equipped with everything we needed including a nice little cream tea welcome pack. The cottage is surrounded by fields at the back, very peaceful with fabulous views. The size of the cottage is very spacious with ample space. We felt at home the moment we arrived, It was always cosy and warm with a great log fire, that we cosied up to in the evening after a day out walking. Abbey was at the end of the phone if we needed her and was extremely helpful. I would highly recommend Beehive cottage to anyone wanting to stay in North Cornwall, we go to cornwall four times a year and this is defineltly ranked as one of my favourites. Thanks for having us Abbey.

The property

Perfectly located for touring the north of both Cornwall and Devon, this charming 'picture postcard' old thatched cottage built in 1752 is set in the pretty village of Morwenstow, a mile from the spectacular coastal path and ten miles north of Bude.

Parking opposite the cottage you sense the cosy homely feel the moment you enter the cottage, which is full of character with its beamed ceilings, large fireplace and memories of time gone by.

There are two bedrooms, a double and a twin both reached by a set of steep stairs from the living room which features a log burner adding to the character and most welcoming after a winter walk along the cliffs.The delightful bathroom offers a free standing bath to indulge yourself with a long soak and reflect on the day.

Outside a pretty enclosed garden with a patio is the place to start the day with breakfast or an early morning cuppa.

Just a mile away and a pleasant walk along country lanes will take you to the historic Bush Inn, a 13th century pub full of history and intrigue.

Open all day every day, all year round serving good food and real ales - this would be many peoples ideal pub boasting a garden with sea views for warm sunny days and a roaring fire for the cooler winter months.

Situated right on the coastal path it is also a great place to reward yourself after an exhilarating walk.

With all the facilities that the award winning coastal resort of Bude has to offer within easy reach the location of this charming old cottage offers a great holiday whatever time of year.
