Things to do in Kilkhampton

Kilkhampton has an exciting history, having being home to Romans and ancient Saxon Kings and is recorded in the Domesday Book. Evidence of burial sites from as far back as the Bronze age have been discovered looking out from some 600 feet above sea level.

- Penstowe Castle: also known as Kilkhampton Castle, was a medieval castle that is known to have been built sometime between the Norman Conquest and the period in the 12th Century known as the Anarchy, during the Civil War. The remains of this motte and bailey castle remains are only about 500m from the village and it is a protected national monument.

-The Kilkhampton Church is something of an enigma with historians quarelling over whether the church is in fact 450 years old, or really 1000 years old. Impressive, regardless of its age it was built as one of many churches dedicated to St James the Great making his way on his pilgrimage to Spain. There are lots of interesting sections and monuments within the church; a must see while in Kilkhampton.

-The Tamar Lakes: in close proximity to Kilkhampton holiday cottages are popular for water sports, fishing, cycling, paddle boating and canoeing. There is a brand new water sports and leisure centre at the upper Tamar Lake, which has all sorts of water craft and equipment for hire. There are nice cycle tracks around the lakes as well.

-Poundstock Gildhouse is a beautifully preserved church house from the late medieval times situated in Poundstock, a small neighbouring hamlet with a number of beautiful historic sites to visit. The Poundstock Gildhouse has been magnificently restored to its former glory, with the architects winning many heritage and conservation awards. It is the only one of its kind still in use in Cornwall today.

-Widemouth Bay is a stunning area of wondrous natural coastal beauty. It is popular for surfing and swimming, and the beach is patrolled by RNLI lifeguards. Just a few miles from holiday accommodation in Kilkhampton, it’s perfect for a day by the sea and there are plenty of cafes and little pubs and shops dotted along the beachfront.

We only stayed Saturday and Sunday night for a long weekend . We wished we could have stayed longer . The accomadation was very clean and in a very quiet location up a quiet country road and down a private drive . It only took 5 minutes to drive into Bude and only 10 minutes drive from a fantastic beach . The accomadation backs right onto a golf course . It is a very peaceful place to stay . Away from all main road traffic. I even spoke to the owner on the telephone as we were booking it in the Internet . Anna is a lovely lady who kept to her word and rang me back and helped me with the booking on the Internet . Anna you truely have a lovely little house there . Hope to return again one day Thankyou Abi and Malcolm

We had everything we needed - (good wifi connectionn and even a hairdryer was provided!!). Kitchen was fully equipped and had the appearance of a newly fitted kitchen. King size bed was extremely comfortable and shower instantly hot. Didn't get round to using the X-box, but would be great for bored youngsters (or adults). Also loved the welcome pack, which was a folder of very detailed information regarding the cottage and facilities in the surrounding area along with some wine and biscuits, which we thought was a really nice touch. Overall, a very enjoyable stay and will definitely consider renting this property again.

Our stay was a peaceful retreat (lovely quiet site). On arrival we got to meet the owner, which was lovely having only had contact via network prior to arrival and what a charming lovely lady, she not only welcomed us but also our beloved dog (Tyson) on entering the property and discovering the lovely welcoming gestures that had been left for us and clearly laden with finesse, including a doggie treat too speaks volumes. We used the Manor on our first night and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Highly Recommended Property and would be looking to return (especially to this property). Tony Gill and Tyson
