Mill is one of 8 family owed Cornish holiday cottages were converted from 19th century farm buildings in a wonderful rural position with stunning views over the countryside to the Atlantic. Just a few miles from some of the beautiful beaches North Cornwall has to offer they are ideally situated for a relaxing seaside break, surfing holiday and coastal walks and tourist attractions. Mill provides a great base for exploring eastwards into North Devon including Clovelly and Hartland Abbey. Expand your visit further into Cornwall visiting historic St Ives and Tintagel. Padstow might provide a gastronomic experience. The Eden Project lies to south.
A shared courtyard welcomes you to Ivy leaf Barton. The cottage has a comfortable downstairs living area leading through to enclosed garden to the rear. Patio furniture with makes it a beautiful situation in which to relax and enjoy 'Al fresco' living.
Well maintain shared grounds also give access to tennis court and (private) golf course.
By prior arrangement , please note that there is a sofabed in the living that might be suitable to additional guests or to sleep two couples.
Bude is a lovely and thriving seaside town with heaps of local activities. It has the charm of any such town without having become overrun by the tourist industry compared to some town further along the North Cornwall Coast.
We have been going there for nine years now and each time we make sure that we do something different and add it to the visitors book.
Trying a new dining venue is also a priority though the kids have their firm favorites for pasties!
Mountain boarding is literally next door- I confess that none of us have tried that one yet. But Ivyleaf Golf course has got to have one of the finest view ever.
Tamar Lakes water centre is a venue of which we have yet to take full advantage. We have been kayaking there and also had a blast in thosormous floating balls that you can ' walk on water'. But there are some lovely gentle lakeside walks and fishing.
Zorbing also happens through the Adventure International where you can also organize abseiling high wires and much much more. Most recently we enjoy the Waterpark/ Wake park just across the border in Devon.
Core to local sports must be surfing and with many local schools just ask around to find one that suits you.... if we are down there at the same time my husband Jason will do his best to get you standing up on one!
For less adrenaline but equally impressive are some of the gardens. The Lost Gardens of Heligan are beautiful and even the kids loved that one... particularly the 'lost ' bit. Of course Eden Profect is often the Jewel in the south west crown but do not overlook smaller more local gardens.
Tintagel cannot fall to impress but sturdy shoes and plenty of drinks should be taken to fully enjoy the site.
I am not sure how much more to go on about this place that we have come to love so much
