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.

Lovely comfortable home from home bungalow.

5 of 5
Had a lovely week in this bungalow, everything you needed was available and the extra touches of flowers and Dog treats were lovely and much appreciated.The bungalow was in a lovely quiet position and was in a great location for exploring the area, also great place for eating out and takeaways. We would definately return and will recommend to friends and family.

Relaxing week enjoying the breathtaking views over Bude

5 of 5
We were very excited to arrive at Beagle cottage and we certainly weren't disappointed. So keen that we missed the entrance to the annex and what a beautiful surprise that was. On a sunny evening you can look out of top front windows and catch the sun setting over the fields. The views across Bude are absolutely stunning. We spent nearly every evening enjoying the views from the rocking chairs. The cottage is very well equipped and was impeccably clean. The bread, Jam and milk were also a lovely personal touch and kept the wolves at bay while we waited for our shopping delivery. A walk from Northcott bay beach to Bude along the cliff tops and also along the beach is a must (when the tide is right of course.) We absolutely lovely the cottage and would most definitely book here again when we next visit Cornwall. Thank you again for letting us stay in such a beautiful cottage.
