Property code: 51546

Nothing happened by chance in this intricately detailed studio cottage less than 3 miles from the coast. With plenty to discover both near and far, here you can spend a quiet afternoon by the pond reading a good book, or stretch your legs along the South West Coast Path and take in the sea view. Conveniently located with access to the Devon border and the A39, Wind In The Willows makes a suitable base for any kind of holiday to Cornwall.

With original stone flooring and walls stylishly incorporated throughout, vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and a grand freestanding bath, the result is all-out country charm. Of course, there are the added creature comforts to make returning home from a day of exploring extra appealing; open the double skylight windows for a cool evening breeze after a long walk, or start up the wood burner and settle in after a good soak in the country-style bathroom.

Sandy beaches and coves are plentiful in the area, with something special waiting to be found in every direction. For the local pub and tea room, head toward the coast for less than a mile to the nearby village of Shop. 10 miles south you'll find the seaside town of Bude, home to the Bude Tidal Pool and fantastic opportunities for watersports. If you take advantage of the A39 you'll make quick work of exploring Cornwall at large. The Eden Project, Bodmin Moor, Port Isaac, and St Ives are just a few of the Cornish treasures within reach.

A delightful hidden gem, just off the beaten track. You will definitely need wellies or walking shoes in wet weather as the approach to the cottage is very muddy. However, you can drive your car down the main drive to the cottage to unload. Ideal if you are looking to get away and relax for a few days. The local pub, The Bush serves fabulous food, Read morebut you will need a car to get there. In Summer maybe a nice walk, around 2-3 miles away. The local village has a Shop with everything you need.
