Beautifully decorated with close attention to detail, this picturesque cabin offers unique accommodation in a relaxing rural location surrounded by wildlife and livestock.

Set in peaceful surroundings on the owner’s farmstead with its resident pony, chickens and ducks, and just 10 miles from the idyllic – and dog-friendly – seaside town of Bude, this charming detached log cabin provides cosy accommodation for a small family or a couple, and their four-legged friend. This is a lovely holiday home for you to relax in, and an ideal base for exploring the glorious countryside and breathtaking coastline of both Cornwall and Devon.

This fresh and attractive open-plan lodge features vaulted ceilings with exposed whitewashed beams, ceiling trusses and wooden flooring, and has been imaginatively and tastefully decorated. You can relax with a good book or a movie in the cheerful lounge and enjoy a meal and chat about the day’s events in the charming dining area. The cabin also features two comfortable double bedrooms, each with stylish decor and antique furniture. Patio doors lead to a lovely partially-covered decked area where you can enjoy a meal or a drink. In the summer you can enjoy a BBQ in the pergola area with its fragrant seasonal climbing roses. The surrounding fields are perfect for walking the dog.

The popular coastal resort of Bude offers a choice of wonderful dog-welcoming beaches including Summerleaze and Breakwater, or you could try some quieter destinations including Widemouth Beach (10 miles) and the National Trust’s Northcott Mouth Beach (11.5 miles). You can enjoy a cliff-top walk near Morwenstow (16.5 miles) or visit picturesque villages including Clovelly (22 miles), Boscastle (19.5 miles) and Westward Ho! (25 miles). Heading inland, the traditional town of Holsworthy (4 miles) offers a choice of shops, tearooms, dog-friendly pubs, a pannier market and a cattle market.

The property was charming but much smaller than it looked. We felt it would not have comfortably accommodated 4 adults in the indoor space during the poorer weather when the lovely gardens could not be enjoyed. Our dog enjoyed the lovely resident dog Baloo, but less sociable dogs may not enjoy the shared spaces. It was a peaceful base to visit someRead more lovely places from, but without local amenities within walking distance its ideal for those prepared to travel or looking for a quiet retreat. Hide

The cottage was ideal, such peaceful surroundings, cosy and clean. Come and go as you please. It was well equipped with kitchen cooking utensils which was very helpful. Would definitely recommend.

Reviewed by Ryan 2nd August 2019

This cottage is a paradise. It offers a perfect sanctuary to get away from the day to day. As for location it maybe inland but as they say in Cornwall everything is about an hour so in other words perfect.

Would just like to say a massive thank you to Roz, Geoff and Baloo! There was myself my partner and our three boys (4yrs , 3yrs and 3mths old) and the folly was outstanding. Its a cozy little place off the beaten track with peaceful surroundings and stunning views. The kids had lots of room to run about and there are so many lovely touches includinRead moreg freshly made scones on your arrival which is just perfect if you travelled far. Really warm welcome and they will bend over backwards for you x Hide

Such a wonderful stay. The owners Roz and Jeff were very accommodating and we felt as if we were at a hike away from home. We absolutely loved our holiday.

Reviewed by Jane 24th May 2019

We had a wonderful stay at the cottage and hosts Roz, Geoff, Baloo and Smithy were very welcoming! Thank you very much for the homemade tea scones on arrival! Lovely setting and the cottage was quite quaint and suited myself and adult daughter very well. I would highly recommend this cottage.
