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.

The Weather in Kilkhampton

The weather is mild all year round and very pleasant in summer, climbing up to 21°C in the day time. The winter months are cool and bring day time temperatures of around 8 °C. Winter can be wet and get very cold thanks to the Atlantic winds, but is for the most part temperate.

Travel to Kilkhampton

The main A39 road runs right through the village with easy connections to the M5. The nearest mainline train stations are at Penzance and Exeter so either car hire or local bus services are needed for the onward journey to Kilkhampton.

location was lovely, right on the beach and cottage was comfortable. would stay again. cars needed to access Bude in inclement weather ! large pothole at the gateway could do with attention and caused some concern at night to the car drivers.

A right gem 💎

5 of 5
We booked this property for new year quite late in the year and didn’t think that what was left would be up to much, but my god how wrong could we be! We were just lucky that the owners had only just put it on owners direct. Everything about this property is perfect, we were 2 families of 2 adults and 2 children each, all staying together. The property is so much more spacious than the pictures perceive and is as well equipped as my home! We wanted for nothing, the bedroom were all spacious and comfortable, and we had plenty of space and privacy. I would definitely recommend this property, the hosts are so guinenly lovely too, The property itself is near the top of a country lane, so a car is definitely recommended, Tesco delivered our food shop with no problems, another bonus. Both the hosts have a great knowledge of the surrounding area and were on hand (discreetly) if we needed them. We thoroughly enjoyed out time at Ivyleaf cottage and hope to return again soon. Another good point to note is the rear garden is safely fenced which makes it safe and ideal for young children.
