A well-presented annexe set in a quiet Cornish hamlet. Just ten minutes from the South West Coast Path, and perfectly placed to explore Cornwall.

This beautiful annexe is a well-converted wing of the main house and is set within a tiny hamlet within the parish of Morwenstow, tucked just inside the Cornish border. Here visitors can find a historic 13th Century inn as well as the intriguing Hawkers Hut, cared for by the National Trust, which is built into the cliffs looking out to sea. The village of Kilkhampton is just three miles away, offering a few shops, a couple of cosy and traditional inns as well as a couple of takeaways. The popular coastal town of Bude is just another few miles away, offering several shops, restaurants, cafes and leisure facilities which include a swimming pool and much-loved sandy beaches. Check out the Rebel Cinema, possibly the most rural example in the UK, showing all the best in new blockbusters. The South West Coast Path is also just ten minutes from the property, offering mile after mile of spectacular coastal scenery and memorable walks. In the surrounding area, there is much to do and see, including National Trust properties and gardens as well as a good selection of golf courses.

This superb accommodation occupies the ground floor only and features a double bedroom with garden views, bathroom, lounge/diner and kitchen. The bathroom features a shower over bath as well as a pair of his and her washbasins. Alongside the dining area with a set of table and chairs, the spacious lounge also has plenty of other great features which make it a great space to relax, including a TV/DVD and a flame-effect electric fire. The kitchen is well-equipped with a number of appliances including a ceramic hob, electric oven, microwave, fridge with ice compartment, breakfast bar, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer.

Clean and well kept cottage in a good location - in the countryside but with good road access and not too far from amenities. Garden is ideal for 2 dogs and owners being on site is a bonus. They were friendly and helpful and provided an excellent welcome pack
