    “Overall a lovely, quirky thatched cottage and all that entails, fabulously situated for dog friendly beach and coastal walks and quintessential Cornish villages, towns and beaches.”


    BUT - nowhere in the description of the cottage does it say the bathroom is downstairs. Had we known this, we orobabkynwouldnt have booked it. Negotiating steep stairs in the middle.of the night was an achievement! - despite several reviews and comments in the visitors book regarding basic instructions for white goods, the heating etc (sadly needed in June), they are still lacking, but managed to sus them all out - despite several comments about the garden needing attention, it remains unkempt and quite uninviting - rubbish, well recycling from previous holiday makers was left in a bin bag at the back door. Despite contacting the contact number, I received no reply. However, googled collection day and sorted it myself, but don't expect to have to do this on holiday! However, great TV (unusual in holiday rentals) and the furnishings and facilities were great. Very comfortable beds and so important, dog friendly!

The cottage

Perfectly located for touring the north of both Cornwall and Devon, this charming 'picture postcard' thatched cottage, built in 1752, is set in the pretty village of Morwenstow.

Being just a mile from the spectacular coastal path and ten miles north of Bude, you are well located for a much-needed holiday.

Parking opposite the cottage, you can sense a homely feel the moment you enter.

It 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 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, 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 cottage offers a great holiday whatever time of year.
