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 to the coast through an ancient wooded valley. Many of our guests enjoy seeing spectacular stars on clear nights. Cycling is great as we are just off the National Cycle Route- bikes can be hired locally and delivered to us. Each of our cottages has access to a BBQ and there are outside chairs and picnic tables in the shared gardens. We have practical undercover provision for storing bicycles, surf boards and for drip-drying wetsuits as well as a hose to get all that sand off! For younger guests we have a wooden play fort and slide which is tucked away behind the courtyard of cottages and we also have a small book, DVD and games library Our outside space is to be enjoyed responsibly.

Romantic Rural Retreat!- The Mill ( 1 bedroom + 'cot room' )
average rating of 5.0 based on 3 reviews

Cozy, romantic hideaway.

  • 5 of 5

This is easily the nice self catering property we have stayed in anywhere in the world. The Mill is really cozy with it's woodburning stove and sofas. The bedroom is lovely and very comfortable we both slept really well. The kitchen is well equipped and a pleasure to use.

Even though it was early January we enjoyed walking on the beaches and the benefit of this time of year is the dog is welcome every where.

I would thoroughly recommend the property for a relaxing winter getaway.

Just as described

  • 5 of 5

The property was everything we expected it to be, and since it was a Christmas let, the owners had even put up a real Christmas tree, and decorated it, which was fab. Bottle of Prosecco and two glasses waiting on arrival.

Walks in the woods were good and instructions for everything. If you use the wood burner, make sure you buy decent dry wood as the "hardwood" sold by Morrisons in Bude didn't burn well.

Would rent again.

Mill cottage - 5*

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful well kept cottage in a lovely setting. Surrounded by countryside, so very peaceful all day and night. Log burner is brilliant to cosy up in front of. Loads of local walks and attractions.not far at all from Morrison's and Bude town centre. Next to stunning beaches with the most amazing views.. Definitely using again and would recommend to all. I went with one other but would be great for families to, plenty of living space and outside picnic area.
