The Corn Store is the perfect retreat all year round in a quiet rural hamlet, perfectly located for exploring the unspoilt coastlines of North Cornwall and Devon. This well thought out new first floor conversion combines original features with contemporary design. Treat yourself to breakfast on the balcony, enjoy the walk-in shower, curl up in front of the wood burner, or try out some stunning coastal walks.
This light and spacious one bed apartment has been completed to a very high standard, offering guests a home from home experience. Its attractive Victorian stone exterior and spacious balcony give it pride of place in our courtyard, with parking directly outside.
The other buildings beneath and adjacent to the Corn Store contain a guest Utility area, an area for storing tools, and a wood store. To the far left of the courtyard is a ground-floor barn conversion for guests, which has its own entrance and parking area around the back, and is therefore completely separate from the Corn Store.
We’re passionate about this area and want to share it with our guests. We provide a wealth of information covering local attractions, our favourite walks set out on a local Ordnance Survey map, recommended places to eat, and tourist information covering Devon and Cornwall. With our insider knowledge you can discover places that only the locals know about. The Corn Store is four miles from the coast and local amenities, and 15 minutes’ drive from Bude, voted best UK seaside resort.
The interior is all about comfort. The en-suite shower room has underfloor heating and a generous walk-in shower. The large open plan living area has a fully equipped fitted kitchen with dishwasher, and seating area with cozy wood-burning stove, and 43” smart TV. In addition there’s a separate utility area close by with washing machine and dryer, and additional freezer space if you need it.
Bask in the morning sun on the large balcony or enjoy fabulous views over the Marsland valley from the indoor mezzanine level. This is a good vantage point to follow the antics of the wild rabbits who colonise our back lawn and out-manoeuvre our two cats. And sometimes you’ll see a local farmer’s cattle in our field, or wild deer in the valley.
Guests must be mobile enough to negotiate a flight of steps up to the front door, and will need a car to get around.
Guests are welcome to enjoy our garden, and can borrow sun loungers and beach equipment that we keep in the guest utility room. We provide our guests with a selection of towels, pressed bed linen, cleaning materials, washing tablets & conditioner, and tea/coffee/sugar. There are a selection of DVDs, books and games for guests to enjoy.
You’ll find our farm easily from the Atlantic Highway (A39), nestled in the peaceful, rural hamlet of Woolley, 9 miles north of Bude. Although we’re no longer a working farm you’ll be able to see either cows or bullocks on our 13 acre field for most of the year.
The Corn Store is the perfect base for exploring North Cornwall and Devon. There’s something for everyone. Walkers, photographers, and surfers can enjoy a spectacular stretch of coastline all year round. Nature lovers have the unique Marsland Nature Reserve on their doorstep. Stargazers can benefit from the dark skies, and holidaymakers are spoilt for choice between rocky or sandy beaches, and a huge variety of outdoor activities and places to visit.
