Country cottage meets contemporary chic. The hosts are passionate about design and interiors and their signature trademark is crisp white walls and vivid pops of colour on furniture or bedding. They also love mid century furniture and have invested in some stunning pieces to furnish the cottage.
This renovated cottage has 2 bedrooms (1 twin, 1 with kingsize bed and ensuite bathroom), both on the upper floor. The family bathroom has a roll top bath and the ensuite wet room has a rainforest shower.
On the ground floor there is a living room with wood burner and a family kitchen with large table. The kitchen is well equipped and includes a dishwasher, microwave and washing machine/tumble dryer. The front garden is south facing and has seating and a barbecue.
This cottage is in Poughill (pronounced Puff-all), a quaint, quintessentially English village close to Bude on the Cornwall/Devon border. It is quiet and picturesque and has a beautiful church and great local pub. The cottage is a 20-minute walk to the stunning Cornish coastline and the famous South West Coastal path. It is also a short walk into Bude, a lovely coastal town with great beaches, restaurants and child-friendly cafés. It sits in front of a public footpath so there are lots of lovely walks on your doorstep. The closest airports are in Exeter (1 hour 15 minutes), Newquay (1 hour) and Bristol (2 hours 20 minutes).
The front garden is south facing and has seating and a barbecue. There is parking in front of the cottage and the church next door.
On the ground floor there is a living room with wood burner and a family kitchen with large table. The kitchen is well equipped and includes a dishwasher, microwave and washing machine/tumble dryer.
