Tranquil Cottage With Spectacular Views Over Amble And Camel Valleys



Updated: 05-Oct-2016
2 bedroomed cottage, peaceful location, splendid views, near village with pub

Lying a short stroll from the quaint village of Chapel Amble, Curlews lies in the heart of the ever popular triangle between Padstow, Port Isaac and Wadebridge, surrounded by areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and Special Scientific Interest in the Amble valley. Set in complete tranquillity, and far from the madding crowd, the bustling historic town of Wadebridge and the spectacular North Cornish Coastline are nevertheless only 10-15 minutes away by car.

Curlews is a cozy, two bedroomed cottage with stupendous views that stretch over the Amble and Camel Valleys to Hustyns and St Breock Downs on the horizon.It was a later addition to the now converted 150-year-old granite cowshed next door, which we use for our personal use. Facing South West, Curlews gets the sun from morning to evening, and benefits from its own private walled garden. The silence we think is quite wonderful. The surrounding farmland belongs to the Duchy of Cornwall.

A short stroll down the country lane leads to Chapel Amble, an ancient village, now a conservation village, and its well regarded food and real ale pub, the Maltsters Arms. There is a small village shop/post office, a tiny village green and an ancient piggery.

Within a 15 minute drive lie the sandy beaches of Daymer Bay, the surfing at Polzeath, and Rock with its watersports and ferry to Padstow, which is renowned for its gastronomic status. The fishing villages of Port Isaac (the Port Wenn of Doc Martin) and Port Gaverne are 4 miles away.

Curlews can sleep up to three people, with one large double bedroom, accessed via a galleried staircase, occupying the first floor, and having a full length window overlooking farmland. A second single bedroom is on the ground floor. There is a combined open-plan living room, fitted kitchen with dining area, with a log burner, DAB audio, Wi-Fi, TV and DVD player. There is off road parking for one car.

About the Owner

Jeff and Rachael have been staying in Chapel Amble with their family for over 20 years.We love the area, and are spending more time here in our adjoining cottage as a prelude to our retirement. We would like others to share the peace and tranquility that Curlews brings.

This is the first time we have rented, and will do everything we can to ensure you have a comfortable and enjoyable stay. We are bound to have overlooked something, and would be pleased for new customers to point out improvements that we can make.

Lovely cottage in an equally lovely setting

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is lovely and had everything we could have needed. It is close enough to village facilities and ideally situated for trips around the county.

To find Curlews, drive to Chapel Amble and take the single track small lane that lies adjacent to the immediate right of the Maltsters Arms pub. Drive half a mile up the narrow lane, and on the left, (just past the barn on the right) is a granite chipping drive. Turn onto the drive, up to and over the cattle grid and through the gate. Drive past the front of Owl's Roost (our cottage) and Curlews is on the right.

  • The village shop supplies a good range of groceries, and locally supplied bacon, milk eggs and cream, alongside daily papers and magazines, and has a small post office within from which cash can be obtained. We would strongly suggest that these super and increasingly disappearing small rural businesses are used as much as possible whilst you are staying locally. It's a very friendly, personal service. For the bigger shop, there's a large Tesco's in Wadebridge (across the bypass bridge), and Wadebridge has every type of shop you could want for your holiday provisions. Changeover days are on Saturday, with departure by 10 am, and arrival after 3pm.
