A delightful 18th-century stone cottage that retains many period features. Within walking distance from Wadebridge and close to attractions.
Lead the way on miles of scenic walks from this elegant white-washed period cottage on the outskirts of the market town of Wadebridge. Active couples or families and up to four of their furry friends will feel right at home in this cosy property where a Cornish cream tea awaits you on arrival. After tiring out your boisterous hounds with games of fetch in the nearby playing fields, snuggle up together in front of the wood burner for some quiet family time together.
Inside, original 18th-century features including low doorways, exposed stonework and wooden ceiling beams blend seamlessly with the modern home comforts that you’d expect from an updated holiday home. The dining area opens out onto the enclosed patio where you can enjoy a hearty al fresco breakfast or family BBQ on a balmy summer’s evening. If you’ve been out walking for most of the day, rest your weary feet – or paws – in the cosy lounge before settling down for the night. Steep cottage-style stairs lead up to the two bedrooms on the first floor – a spacious king and compact twin room.
Wadebridge town centre is around half a mile from the property, across a footbridge over the River Camel. Bike or walk 5 miles along the Camel Trail to the picture-perfect fishing port of Padstow, one of the best places in the country for seafood restaurants. It also welcomes dogs year-round on many of its beaches, including Constantine Bay and Harbour Cove. Further afield, the Eden Project (15 miles) has walking paths to sniff out that meander their way around the famous biomes.
