About the property

Detached 3 Bedroom Cottage With Spacious Private Garden & Off Road Parking

Forge Cottage is a detached character property with a spacious private garden offering 3-bedroom self-catering accommodation in Burlawn, a quiet hamlet 1.5 miles south of Wadebridge, North Cornwall. The property has all the charm of a classic Cornish Cottage with the benefit of having been recently renovated to a high standard of comfort and style. With off-road parking and a lovely private garden to the rear Forge Cottage makes the perfect family holiday home to relax and enjoy Cornwall from. Burlawn is surrounded by peaceful countryside and lies beside the extensive Bishop's Wood owned by the Forestry Commission where you'll find a tranquil and undiscovered side of Cornwall - peace and quiet even in the height of the Summer season! For great local days out there are some of Cornwall's finest beaches within easy reach with beautiful Daymer Bay, near Rock and the epic golden sands of Polzeath being just 7 miles away. This is a great location to be based for exploring Cornwall with classic picturesque harbour towns like Padstow (8 miles) and Port Issac (8 miles) only a short hop away. There are amazing days out to be had exploring the Camel estuary, Bodmin Moor and the rugged North Cornwall coast where you'll find hidden gems like Trebarwith Strand and the unique harbour at Boscastle. For your everyday needs you'll find Wadebridge just 5 minutes away and well equipped with shops, supermarkets, pubs, restaurants and a cinema - all set against the backdrop of a historical market town with the impressive river Camel running through it.

About Andy Herbert

We have loved the South West and Cornwall in particular since our very first visit in the 1980s. We used to come here every summer for family camping holidays when the kids were small. It seems inevitable that we would end up living here.

Andy Herbert purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Andy Herbert chose North Cornwall

Forge Cottage is a typical Cornish cottage in a quiet hamlet, great for getting away from the hustle and bustle. It's only a 5 minute drive into Wadebridge, convenient for shopping and all other facilities. We bought the cottage in 2010 and the whole family has just finished refurbishing it to a high standard. We've installed lots of modern features like solar (PV) panels and an air-source heat pump. This year we have created a new garden and built a garage.

What makes this cottage unique

The hamlet is surrounded by quiet countryside. We love walking in Bishop's Wood, an extensive Forestry Commission estate near the cottage. The beautiful Camel Trail is close by at the bottom of the valley and through the woods. The picturesque Camel estuary is a few miles away toward Rock and Padstow and the amazing and rugged North Cornwall coast is about 20 minutes drive.

A lovely cottage in a great location for exploring.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a stay at Forge cottage during October half term. Cottage had plenty of space for us (4 adults, 2 teenagers) It was well equipped, cosy and clean. The flowers and wine on arrival was a lovely touch too.

We had some lovely walks through local woodland and down to the camel trail. The maps in the cottage were really useful. By car we explored Wadebrige, Bedruthan steps, watergate bay and Padstow - all a short drive away. Communication with Andy (owner) always straightforward and prompt. Would not hesitate to recommend a stay here.

Very comfortable and well maintained property

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was well equipped and comfortable, large enough for four adults and two children. Location was very good - very short distance to Wadebridge and good place for getting to various places in Cornwall. We would highly recommend it

Cosy Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Spacious cottage in a great location with good sized bedrooms and a lovely bathroom. An extra toilet off the main bedroom was a bonus. Our boys loved the garden and also loved the little playground 100 yards away. We explored Wadebridge, Padstow, Port Issac and Mawgan Porth which has a fantastic beach and excellent surfing facilities (complete with lifeguards)

Burlawn reteat

  • 4 of 5

A comfortable, clean, roomy and well maintained cottage in semi rural location with easy access to Wadebridge and Padstow and the surfing coast line. Good wifi access. Beds very comfortable. A very ralxing freestanding deep bath in the main bathroom. Not fully dog secure though as no gates on the garden but able to keep our dogs in with clever positioning the car. Well worth a visit!

Our stay at forge Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage with a real homely feel, as soon as you step in the door you are on holiday! Very well appointed with everything you need to have a very relaxing stay. The only thing we wish we had taken with us is a BBQ, so if you enjoy open air cooking take a small one with you (although I have been assured there will be one provided next year) The garden is too nice not to enjoy,! The bathroom was amazing with a roll top bath and powerful shower. The kitchen has everything you need and more with a five ring hob, double oven and even a waffle iron!

Forge cottage is a ideally placed to enjoy a holiday in north Cornwall with Wadebridge on the doorstep and several outstanding beaches within a short drive. My children who are 7 and 10 had a really enjoyable time and the wifi helped with the couple of rainy days.

Forge Cottage is a perfect place for a relaxing family holiday and we hope to visit again soon.
