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.

Has everything you need and more,including sky TV with movies! It is in a beautiful location, with lots of lovely towns and villages nearby,and will certainly be coming back. My partner and myself loved it because of being so quiet, and we spent a few days just chilling, doing absolutely nothing,and nobody to disturb is which was really nice,but knowing if we needed anything there was help only a few minutes away.

However we found the cottage quite small and we would have appreciated to know about the ceiling height as we are a family of tall people. I'm not one for complaining but the cleanliness really wasn't up to our standard . Wi-fi & the video recorder didn't work which normally is not a problem at all as we are outdoor people but when it gets dark at 4pm it would have been nice to at least be able to watch a movie. Not having wifi was a blessing in the end as I have never seen my husband more relaxed (after the initial OMG no internet & no mobile connection panic!) However in my opinion if you advertise a property with all these facilities please ensure they work properly especially if you pay a premium price.
