About the property

Best of Coast & Countryside

Nestled just 10 mins from the beach and with great access to North Cornwall and North Devon is the tranquil private estate of Stoneleigh Knowle.

Our Farmhouse and 3 cottages can be booked individually or grouped together for larger gatherings which makes this the perfect venue for couples, families or large groups of friends.

There is plenty of wildlife with acres of woods, meadows and streams to explore. Great walking and cycling routes start right from the cottages so you should never be short of something to do.

All the cottages have been furnished with comfortable sofas and beds including mattresses from 'Feather & Black'. (comfort has featured highly in our positive feedback from our guests). All our cottages have well equipped kitchens with a microwave, fridge freezer, electric cooker, dishwasher and lots of utensils. All the properties also have a flat screen TV with Free Sat and a Blu Ray player.

We have plenty of outside space in which you can BBQ or just sit and chat. We also have a play castle for the children to keep them occupied too!

We welcome dogs with a small charge and just a few rules- please let us know at time of booking.

A wonderful retreat for the family plus dog!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful stay in the cottage at Stoneleigh Knowle. Our party consisted of myself together with my son and his partner and our much loved greyhound. We all felt at home as soon as we arrived. The cottage was warm, cosy and welcoming and perfectly clean. We enjoyed visiting Bude, Clovelly and Padstow for day trips and relished the opportunity to walk the many local beaches and countryside close to the cottage. I would most strongly recommend a visit to this cottage. We had a super time and although we were sad to leave, we would certainly revisit time and time again!

Stone house Well equiped , Comfy warm , welcoming , cottage in a good location, booking process good

  • 4 of 5

From booking advice& help from Rebecca, this cottage was great for our family break , with a 3 year old & a 7week old baby every thing was taken care of travel cot, beds made up to suit our party size. The cottage was well equiped & very welcoming, with a wonderful thoughtful warm cottage upon arrival, & the extra lovely bottle of fizz to enjoy after we had settled in was a wonderful touch. The cottage was for us nicely seclude but with only a short drive to the beachs of Widemouth bay , with good cafe at black rock, & a drive into Bude also great beach, & cafes to enjoy. Enjoyed the sea pool let's hope it remains for many others to enjoy. Would highly recommend to friends & family & hope to return very soon.

Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay, accompanied by our two teenagers and the family dog. The setting is so tranquil; just being outside with only the sounds of the countryside was bliss. The cottage is within easy drive of so many beautiful Cornish locations. Waitrose deliver to the cottage, relieving the need to traipse to a supermarket after a long drive down.

The property is nicely furnished, with a roomy, comfortable feel.

The kids did complain about the limited wifi but they did accept that actually communicating with their parents was a reasonable alternative :)

Location

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

Nature- We have a unique environment which can offer guests a wonderful opportunity to watch wildlife and to spot nature.

Astronomy- We have very little light pollution and consequently there are some fabulous opportunities for star gazing.

We are very happy to help facilitate groups who wish to run themed breaks like painting, photography or retreats. Please talk to us about your ideas.

Coast/Beach:

Fantastic Widemouth Bay with sand, surf, café, loos, showers and lifeguard service is just 5mins drive, and the incredible South West Coastal Path is accessed from here.

Within 10-20mins drive there are many other fantastic beaches offering a wide variety of sand, pebbles, rock pools and coastal geology. Many allow dogs and many offer a lifeguard service. For the more adventurous or romantic there are some 'hidden' beaches too.

We will happily help you to find the right beach for you.

Travel:

If you want to really explore North Cornwall then we recommend that you have a car when you stay with us.

For those wishing to reduce their carbon footprint bikes can be hired and delivered to the estate and there are bus services throughout North Cornwall.

The best Train Stations would be either Exeter or Bodmin depending on direction of travel. There is a bus service and car hire available in Exeter.

Our closest airports are Newquay and Exeter which offer a good range of flights.

Notes:

  • The cottage has been furnished with quality in mind. Sofas, beds and a well equipped kitchen have all had positive reviews from previous guests.We want you to have a good time so we have tried to create a comfortable home from home. The changeover days can usually be co-ordinated to enable group bookings of more than one cottage. There is a long open barn in the courtyard which houses our table tennis table. Bed linen is included. The property is cleaned at changeover. We can provide travel cots (but don't provide the bedding for these). The WiFi and internet access are subject to the service constraints of our BT landline. We cannot guarantee that it will be working during your stay so please don't rely on it . Outside: We are very fortunate to be able to offer our guests some UNIQUE OUTSIDE SPACE. This means; places for picnics, kite flying, den building, exploring, nature spotting and woodland wandering. You can walk from the cottages to English Heritage's Penhallam Manor, and
