Primrose Cottage is Family and Pet Friendly



Updated: 12-Nov-2016
Set in a small complex of cottages in Whitstone village near Bude, Cornwall

Bennetts Court is a small, family run complex of holiday cottages, set in a lovely quiet location with beautiful views over open countryside to the sea beyond. The cottages are all converted old farm buildings, and are set around a private courtyard well back from the road. The cottages are all comfortable and well equipped, offering a great place to stay for your vacation. Within the complex you can enjoy a swim in the outdoor pool (May to September), play table tennis, enjoy a walk or a kick about in the playing field, visit the rabbits and guinea pigs or sit and watch the alpacas grazing in their field. Perhaps a quiet time having a coffee outside and reading a book, or a BBQ in the picnic barn and see the sun go down over the sea. We are also ideally placed for exploring the surrounding area with North Devon in easy reach as well as the many lovely beaches and harbours along the North coast of Cornwall. Cots and highchairs are available free of charge, laundry facilities on-site.

Wonderful family holiday and alpacas too!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at primrose cottage. John and Nikki made us and our daughter really welcome. The cottage was well appointed and very comfortable. The site is set up perfectly for young families, there are lots of toys to borrow, swings and climbing frames and a very friendly dog to fuss. Nikki very kindly lets the kids feed the animals each morning, our daughter loved the alpacas and said they were the highlight of her holiday! The views are lovely and Bude is only a 10 min drive away and the nearest beach is wide mouth bay again about 10 mins away. We didn't have a dog but the site is very dog friendly. I would heartily recommend Bennetts court.

From the Owner

We chose Bennetts Court chiefly for its position and open space. It is great to be able to pop down to the beach and then return to our tranquil rural setting; and all before lunch.
