About Simon John


A little about ourselves..Myself (Silkie) and my partner (Simon) live in Bristol with our two small and very busy boys! I am a designer and run a boutique stationery company and Si is a musician and property renovator.

We try to stay at the cottage as a family as often as possible and find more and more wonderful things to do and explore in the area every time we visit. We think it is a very special place and hope you do to.

Simon John purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Simon John chose Kilkhampton

We have been coming to Cornwall for many years and really fell in love with Bude and the surrounding area. Every time we visit we discover more and more wonderful places. Si is a keen surfer as are our boys and the north Cornish coast offers some amazing surf spots and the beaches and countryside are truly beautiful.

Spring cottage was bought in 2010, a 200 year old building in need of complete renovation. A year half later after much hard work and inspiration Spring cottage was reinvented!! Si really has done a wonderful job with the renovation and I have had a fab time choosing cushions!!

Lovely cottage in perfect quiet location - great with kids!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was clean, well

Maintained with a lovely garden and BBQ area. Plenty big enough for 2 families with kids to share. Very near some wonderful beaches as well as great walks and family day out theme parks. We had a great stay and would certainly recommend!

Gorgeous cottage - recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Quiet and pretty location in a village which has much to recommend it. Kilkhampton has two pubs - the New Inn is great for food and for a proper local pub experience. There is a decent fish & chip shop and a pizza bar. Plus a few steps down the lane to the Spar shop and Post office. It's a proper functioning village with the essentials you need for a stress free stay.

But the element of our holiday which made it unforgettable was Spring Cottage itself. A beautiful old cottage which has been sympathetically extended to provide a very special environment. Simon and Silkie have made a super job of the interior. The whole place oozes class and comfort with real attention to detail. Quality carpets, gorgeous soft furnishings, understated accessories and a real understanding of tradition with a 21st century take!

Plus squeaky clean bathrooms, crisp white linens and things like handwash, washing up liquid and laundry detergent included. Lovely garden with a decent BBQ and a wood burner in the front room. Our teenagers were mighty impressed with the super-fast wifi connection (better than London apparently.....).

Top tips: 'Life's a Beach' in Bude for a special meal; the walk from Crooklets to Sandymouth and back along the cliff tops; Pengenna pasty shop in Bude for the ULTIMATE Cornish pasties...

There is an enormous variety of beaches to be found in this area of North Cornwall.From the rugged beauty of Welcombe ,Duckpool and Trebarwith strand to the more tourist oriented Bude beaches or the 1950's caravan tea shop of Northcott (Maggie has been there 40 yrs!!) this area is a jewel waiting to be discovered.Forget the hundreds of tourists further South and be prepared to experience something altogether different.Duckpool and Sandymouth are 1.5 miles away.10 mins by car or a gorgeous walk !


Exeter airport is 50 miles away.Newquay airport is 40 miles away.To drive to Spring Cottage from the channel ports will take about 2 hours (Plymouth) coming over the gorgeous Dartmoor!


Bude is 5 miles approx,Holsworthy ,9 miles.Bideford and Barnstaple ,20 miles

Further Details:

Kilkhampton has a great butcher,a fantastic Pizza bar,great chippy plus a Spar and 2 good pubs.Bude is 4 miles distant and has a great selection of local shops plus larger supermarket chains (Sainsburys,Morrisons), banks and chemists etc. There is a small hospital in Stratton (3 miles) and a larger hospital in Holsworthy (9 miles).

Holsworthy holds a town market on a Tuesday and has the most funky veg shop in the square.
