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.

It was perfect for us (2 adults,4 children). On arrival there was a fantastic basket of treats for us which was very welcoming and a great information pack to help us out. The rooms were all very clean and cosy, and quite spacious and the 2 bathrooms were fab with 6 of us! The lounge had some great games to play and quite a few dvds too, all in all a fantastic place, we can't wait to come back and stay again!

Cottage very well equipped and very clean on our arrival. Lounge area quite small for 2 adults and 2 grown up children and very dark- however not a problem in the evening when being used. Only criticism- one of the double sofa springs was shot and therefore not comfortable for any length of time. Lovely open plan sun-room which was very pleasant to sit in at any time and nice to have a choice of bath and separate shower. All in all a fantastic week enjoyed by all- thank you very much! Booking process was very easy and information sent prior to trip was very good also. Would thoroughly recommend.

On arrival the key is waiting outside in a coded key box for you, flowers and a bottle of bucks fizz what a lovely touch. Home from home could have cooked a three course meal the kitchen was so well equipped, everything you could think of had already been thought of by Annette. Parking is just opposite the bungalow. three steps to climb up to front door. A living area with sofa and chairs, dining table as well as kitchen area. Floor to ceiling windows which make it very light and airy. A spotlessly clean bathroom with a walk in shower, sink and toilet. Two bedrooms one double bed and one with twin beds. double bed room a little small but adequate to get your head down. Lovely to wake in the morning and look out of bedroom windows, which backs on to trees, to see birds feeding and a greedy squirrel! View of sea in distance from front of bungalow. Manor house on site with facilities of two pools, gym, restaurant and free entertainment every night. Another pub on site called Stables serves food and allows dogs in. Also a shed that sells pizza on site. Around five miles from Bude. there is a beach nearer but didn't go there. Tamar lakes are quite near worth visiting and recommend Wei's Chinese kitchen near lower Tamar lake. Highly recommend this bungalow don't hesitate if you are looking for a base for that area of Cornwall. Thank you Annette
