This cosy cottage is an ideal base for a romantic couples escape. One of five, it is set around a pretty courtyard on a delightful complex, offering lots of on site activities.

Enjoy the very best of coast and countryside from this charming barn conversion. You will not only be within easy reach of the hidden coves, cliff-top walks, sandy surfing beaches and fishing villages, but also the breath-taking scenery of Dartmoor. The area surrounding the cottage offers traditional towns and villages with an array of shops and local pubs, but travel a little further and you will discover a whole range of attractions. These include water sports at Roadford Reservoir, horse riding, golf, Bude Canal and Splashpool, Launceston Steam Railway, the Milky Way and the Eden Project to name but a few.

This pretty cottage has been finished beautifully, offering a welcoming base to retire to.

In the kitchen you will find an oven, hob, fridge, washing machine and microwave, while the living space offers a dining room table and seating around a charming wood burner set into a brick fire place. There is also a TV/DVD and hi-fi for the evenings when you just want to relax on the sofa. Head through to the bedroom where you will find an inviting king-size bedroom with its own en-suite with shower over bath.

Step outside into the pretty shared courtyard and enjoy your morning coffee sat at your own garden table. The grounds of this complex offer a lot for visitors of all ages to enjoy; children will love the outdoor play area and meeting the animals in the pet corner, while older generations will love the peaceful lake, which is surrounded by woodland walks and shared gardens. Here you can try your hand at coarse fishing or perhaps head to the games barn and get competitive with the pool table, table football, darts and air hockey.

We had an brilliant weeks holiday at the cottages the family all enjoyed the facilities and the animals. Very welcoming and friendly owners which certainly helped make our holiday even better.

Lovely location when you want a quite holiday. Being able to walk our dog around the lake mornings and evenings was great and seeing the dragonflies. We came down to visit relatives near bude so being half an hour away was ok. We ate out in the day or got provisions whilst out because holidaying in October meant a lot of pubs and cafes are shut.

This is obviously our fault, but we found the cottages too remote and down very narrow winding lanes. Have to be so aware of oncoming vehicles in the middle of the road. Pubs were not as local as we would of liked, and no where really local to eat without going towards the coast. Great fishing pond, although be aware its quite a downward walk over Read morefields to get there. Can be quite a hike on the hill coming back, especially with all your fishing gear. Our hosts Richard and Vicky were great. Hide

A nice enough cottage and reasonably comfortable stay which could be improved upon by providing slightly better fittings and furnishings. The directions to the cottage take you through quite a windy and uneven road which is more of a single lane track in place and the cottage is fairly remote with no shops or pubs within walking distance and you haRead moreve to drive to get anywhere of interest. Nice little fishing lake with plenty of big fish and you need strong tackle to catch the carp. Hide
