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 pint of milk and box of biscuits that had been left for us, were a lovely touch so we were able to have a cup of tea and snack as soon as we arrived. We found everything we needed, and more, in the kitchen, which isn't always the case with holiday lets. On our first morning we had a need to contact the caretaker over a minor issue, and she was with us within 15 minutes to solve the problem. It was so nice to have great customer service. The position of the cottage near Kilkhampton made it ideal as it was only a short drive to the beaches we love, and it was close enough to Bude for a quick trip to the supermarkets or beaches. The only downside for the cottage is it's location next to the A39. Our children tried to play football in the garden, and despite being careful, the ball did end up going under the gate and onto the road, so we didn't play that again. It was also relatively noisy when we sat outside for our meals. However, we made good use of the large garden playing catch, and running around.

It is by no means perfect but for us that is part of its charm. We like the fact that you do not have to be too precious with regards to our two weimeraners, and that you can totally relax and switch off in the comfy surroundings. The view is amazing and the proximity to the beach is an added bonus when you are walking the dogs or just watching the most spectacular sunsets over the ocean ( with glass of wine !! ). Even when the weather is not great, we feel the place has a magical quality that keeps us coming back. Looking forward to trip No4 Annie,Phil and our two dogs Marnie & Bella
