We had to force ourselves to leave the cottage as we were happy to just look at the views from the huge windows in the lounge. There was a cream tea to welcome us and even a box of biscuits for the dogs who certainly seemed to appreciate them!! Widemouth Bay is a 15 minute drive away and perfect for a long walk with dogs. All in all one of the best places we've stayed in and hope to go back soon.

The Dutch barn is truly a wonderful place to stay, Ross and Becky have thought of everything, nothing has been forgotten. The enclosed garden was fantastic for us with the dogs and we loved the hot tub! The games room was great addition too. We would highly recommend staying at Pencure farm and we will definitely return, Ross & Becky were a great help to us when we had a little hiccup which made our stay a lot easier. Thank you Ross & Becky from the Ewens family

The log burner, efficient heating and warm duvets kept us all cosy, and we enjoyed using the well equipped kitchen. A good location for the beaches of North Cornwall and walking on Roughtor and Crowdy Reservoir.
