    Only improvements would be WiFi that reaches whole cottage not just the back part and kitchen bit small on workspace for preparing meals, especially as it sleeps 8 people. Otherwise lovely characterful thatched cottage. Low beams were not that low. I am 5'11" and only needed to duck a bit for room entrance to front room + upstairs bedroom. When in rooms did not need to duck at all. Not much of a problem at all.

The property

This cosy Grade II listed, 18th century, detached, thatched house is in the sleepy hamlet of Woolley, beautiful walking country on the borders of Cornwall and Devon.

Retaining its charming character with low lintels, flagstone floors and thick walls in the original part of the building, it's been extended to create a big and roomy family home providing quality, all-year-round accommodation in this delightful part of north Cornwall.

On the ground floor a well-appointed, flagstone-floored, beamed kitchen for preparing tasty meals for the family to enjoy in the large sunlight-filled living room with dining area, wooden floors and high beamed ceilings to the apex. French doors open out onto the garden, and stairs lead up to a gallery/den with daybed.

There's more room to relax in a separate, snug living room with low beams, decorative aga, flagstone floor and window seats. Also on the ground floor a double bedroom, shower room and bathroom.

Up on the first floor are three more comfortable bedrooms, a big roomy double with beams and two singles.

There's plenty of room to relax outside as the property is surrounded by garden with lawn, shrubs, mature trees with views over fields to Devon, a games shed for youngsters to let off steam playing table tennis, and a lovely sunny courtyard garden to the front.

Enjoy a cream tea in the award winning tea rooms in the neighbouring hamlet of Morwenstow.

Youngsters will love the wide, sandy beaches at Bude, just 8 miles away, whilst the famous cliffside, traffic free village of Clovelly is one of the area's gems.

This is a s smashing house with bags of character and space for everyone in a beautiful, unspoiled area.

About the location


Bude is a fabulous coastal town that once visited you will want to come back to time and time again. Bude has something for everyone, great beaches for relaxing, and building sandcastles on, rock pools 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.
