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.

Really comfortable house. Fantastic for a walking holiday. short easy cliff top walk to Bude. Plenty of other walks available. Best bit is you have a beach almost exclusively for your own use. Don't forget to visit the Rustic tea room just up the lane, Margret is a Cornish Gem, With cream ties to die for! Will visit the Nook again!

It was beautifully decorated and so comfortable. We had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and cosy. The location was perfect for walking Basil and doing some site seeing. Our hosts were amazing and made us feel so welcome. I would highly recommend staying at these wonderful cottages. Thank you so much for making us feel so welcome we will definitely be seeing you in the future.
