Property Details

'Excellent cottage, excellent setting, excellent location, excellent holiday. We all need to relax and this was perfect'. This is just one of the plaudits heaped on Beech Cottage. Another, 'would like to take the bed, the duvet. the pillows, the pheasants, the goats and chickens with us, but mostly we would love to take the morning birdsong. Will spend our year looking forward to coming back'.

Beech is one of five secluded holiday cottages standing in three acres of gardens surrounded by open countryside, offering distant views of Dartmoor to the south. The cottage has a small private seating area and garden to the front, leading out to two bbq areas, playing field, pets corner and a small copse. Children love the morning ritual of helping to feed the goats and chickens, all of whom are very friendly. Finding a warm fresh egg and stroking the chickens is a highlight for many of the younger children.

The cottage is 4* graded by Quality in Tourism and will forever be known by our children as 'the upside down house'. The first floor of the cottage is home to the living/dining room, kitchen and a twin bedroom. The French doors in the living room let the morning sun fill the room, just sit in the armchair and enjoy the peace and views. For those colder nights a log burning stove helps to keep the cottage cosy and warm. The ground floor has a single/twin bedroom, double bedroom and a shower room. Be warned beamed ceilings on the ground floor are a potential hazard to those over 6'. On large or two small well behaved dogs are allowed to stay. For those guests who have difficulty with stairs our Roundhouse, Pond Meadow or Little Leighs cottages would be more suitable.

Beech is perfect for couples of families of up to five. It is a great touring base, with the 'Atlantic Highway' being a few minutes drive from the cottage, giving you access to the North Cornish coast and especially Crackington Haven, Bude, Boscatle and Tintagel, all within a 15-20 minute drive. Crackington Haven is 5 miles away and is excellent for body boarding, rock pooling, walking or just sun bathing and has a very welcoming pub just off of the beach.

We, Lorraine and Geoff, live near the cottage in the old farmhouse and we are always here to welcome you in and help with anything during your holiday.
