These 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. These self-catering country cottages provide 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.
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 four 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.
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
We are a happy family who love spending time here all together when we can and allowing others to share this beautiful part of our island...almost better that that are the quiet off peak times when my husband and I have had a sneaky kid free break.
Whenever we come back , I breathe a sigh of relief as the tranquillity kicks in and we settle down into this cosy cottage, found up a small lane in some lovely countryside.
The golf course literally backs on to the garden. Mountain boarding slope just up the driveway and tennis court on site but due to the location of the cottage at the end of the courtyard, peace reigns ( except maybe during the school hols!)
We had a great time thank you - your cottage was absolutely lovely. Perfect for what we were looking for. I am sure we will be back in the future!
My parents and their Scottie dog spent a lovely Easter break in the barn in March 2016.
The location for the property is fantastic. It is at the end of a country lane with no through traffic, so it is quiet and rural with a great view out over the golf course and down towards the sea. Yet it is only about a 3minute drive from both Bude town centre and Stratton, or 5 minutes drive from Crooklets beach so it is still really well connected.
The property has everything you need for a comfortable stay so we would definitely recommend it and will happily consider coming back for future visits.
We stayed for a long winter break in January - absolutely everything you need for a great stay whatever the weather. Lovely views from the top of a hill overlooking Bude and the surrounding coast. We stayed in Mill. Very quiet and you're left to enjoy it by the wonderful Manageress and Owners. And incredible value for money. Literally a few minutes drive to either Kilkhampton or Bude for anything you might need.
I can't believe that anyone could possibly have any complaints, because I can highly recommend Ivy Leaf.
Das Cottage ist ruhig gelegen mit toller Aussicht vom Schlafzimmer auf das Meer und die Landschaft. Das Cottage verfügt über alle wesentlichen Dinge bis auf wireless lan. Es ist gemütlich eingerichtet. In 5 - 10 Min. Entfernung findet sich ein sehr großer Supermarkt, wo man alles Notwendige bekommen kann. Bude ist ein sehr schöner Ort zum shoppen und speisen und hat außerdem eine schöne Bucht mit Strand und Schwimmbad.
Bewusst sein sollte man sich aber darüber, dass das Domizil mindestens 1200 m oberhalb der Hauptstraße liegt und die Auffahrt sehr steil ist - also Radtouren von dort zumindest mit einer großen Anstrengung enden. Abgesehen davon sollte man auf Radtouren in Cornwall aus Sicherheitsgründen lieber verzichten - selbst die in Radkarten eingezeichneten "Radwege" sind in der Regel ganz schmale und hoch mit Hecken zugewachsene Straßen - Lebensgefahr - außer dem Cameltrail bei Padstow.
My husband and I, with some friends, stayed for a week at Barn and Mill at the end of August. They are beautiful, well-appointed cottages nestled in a small complex of holiday cottages with all home comforts – good kitchen with washing machine, comfy beds and a great sized living room with tv. Both cottages have gardens with stunning views over the adjacent golf course and beyond to the sea. There are dedicated parking spaces for both cottages in the grounds and a shared tennis court.
The surrounding area is lovely with tons to do. Bude is just a 10-minute drive away with its restaurants, bars and coffee shops. Try a surfing lesson at Sandymouth Beach and a coffee (or cocktail!) at Life’s A Beach. Port Isaac, Tintagel and Padstow are all worth visiting too.
We will definitely be back next year. The cottages are reasonably priced and they really are little gems. Highly recommended.
The area and the cottage were lovely, we were very impressed with the setting - Anna has a beautiful property there! We had dinner in the garden, overlooking a golf course and with sea view behind it, which was great! The cottage was cosy, full of character and the surroundings very quiet.
There were a few minor things that didn't go well though: We were quite confused about the property's housekeeper to be honest. I was told to let the housekeeper know of our arrival which I we did. We rang once and no one picked up, which is fine. Then the second time we rang, I was sure she has rejected our phone call... The third time it was completely switched off so we left an answer phone message. We were unsure of what to do when we arrived as we hadn't spoken to anyone about this - we walked around the site for about 10 minutes, rang the housekeeper again (phone switched off) as we simply didn't know what to do - I presumed we will be told when confirming our time of arrival, but as she didn't pick up we didn't have any instructions. We then phoned Anna and she assured us we can just go in, the keys are inside - I can't just walk into a property without someone telling me it was ok!
We couldn't lock the back door which was quite worrying for us.
The first night we couldn't have a shower as the water wasn't working, but we didn't want to disturb Anna so late. After a long day of travelling and walking, all you need was a nice shower. The next morning she told us how to switch it on, but we would have appreciated instructions on the table, as the switch was nowhere near the bathroom.
There was also just half a toilet role and no spares which meant we ran out on the last day and we had to use tissues. The cottage was very clean, apart from the area under the sink where some of the pans were which was quite dirty. Cooking equipment could have been a bit better, but didn't bother us for just three days. Other than that the kitchen was very very modern!
Apart from these things, we really enjoyed our time though and enjoyed staying the cottage! As we now know how everything works, we would not hesitate to come back if we return to the area!
We have stayed at Mill cottage quite a few times during the past 5 years and plan to visit again this September. The closer we get to Bude the better we feel! The cottage is very comfortable, and cosy, with every facility. It is suitable for all ages, and within easy reach of shops and beaches. The cottage is spotless and obviously very well cared for. The weather during our stays has varied from heat wave to thunderstorms, but each stay has been perfect. We visit many places both for the beaches and the restaurants, these include, St Ives, Padstow, Newquay Mevagissey and Perranporth. A car is essential particularly for the less active visitors. To sum up, the cottage is perfectly situated, extremely comfortable, has every facility, and we would wholeheartedly recommend it to all.
