Wheelwright Period Cottage (Sleeps 4. 2 Bedrooms)
Wheelwright cottage is an example of four delightly period cottages, set in a row in a quiet of the village, right next door to the facilities at Court Farm. These cottages retain so much character and charm with their beamed ceilings, slate flooring and wood burning stoves (Free log supply ) in their inglenook fireplaces. All very similar in design, just varying in size slightly. In Wheelwright you walk directly into the lovely lounge, which leads through to the well equipped little kitchen, with backdoor leading directly onto a sunny patio area with picnic bench, in its lovely enclosed garden.
Upstairs the floorboards have been stripped, the bedrooms traditionally furnished and decorated with the help of our interior design team.

Why Kevin Trewin chose Cornwall
Our Family have farmed Court Farm Marhamchurch for 3 generations. Once a working farm, many a guest have stayed in Court farmhouse for B&B and around 1988 our parents converted the deralict barns into what they are today (they have of course had a few updates since then!) other properties have been aquired (the cottages once housed the workers of Court Farm Barton ) and a few have been built from scratch (Sycamore & Chestnut) .. and we seem to keep on growing ... in 2011 we have added Dolphins Beach Retreat at Widemouth Bay, and 2 Rural Retreats on our working farm at Northcott.
What makes this cottage unique
Guests staying at Court Farm can enjoy a tranquil village location, just 2.5 miles inland from the sand & surf of Bude, Widemouth Bay & Northcott Mouth with another 4 beaches within 4 miles. Everyone has shared use of our heated swimming pool (with retracting roof making it open air on hot days), tennis court, games room with pool table, indoor soft play area for toddlers, large grassed play area with play trail, swings, slides & indoor play barn. Being one of the most dog friendly regions in the UK with dogs being allowed on every-other beach from Crackington Haven up to Sandymouth (on leads) with the coastal path so close, farmland and also along the historic bude canal path.
