Hobb's Choice is a truly unique property, nestled in a tranquil wooded valley with a little stream at the foot of the terraced gardens and winding pathways, for you to explore the grounds which are packed with wild flowers and fauna. This property is full of character, with original beamed ceilings, slate floors and woodburners in both sitting rooms. Why not snuggle up by the woodburner in the evenings with a refreshing glass of wine or a warming hot chocolate, after an exhilarating day exploring the local area, with its outstanding natural beauty. Later, climb the stairs to one of the three comfortable bedrooms for a peaceful night's sleep.

Every room has been decorated with its own individual style, there is even a roll top bath that stands regally in the main bedroom, where better to enjoy the peaceful setting! Hobb's Choice really is a lovely retreat to chill out and enjoy nature at its best. Perfectly located near the North Cornwall and Devon border, Hobb's choice is ideal for those walkers and guests bringing along the four legged friends, as the many local walks are easily accessed, or you can drive to Marsland Mouth which is just 2.5 miles away.

Join the South West Coastal footpath at Marsland or head toward the historic church at Morwenstow, here you will find the Rectory Tearooms where you can enjoy a legendary Cornish cream tea before embarking on your trail. Or take a short trip to Welcombe and you will find Welcombe Pottery, where amazing earthenware and Raku pots are created. There is also a pub serving homemade meals and local ales. Duckpool and Sandymouth beaches are pretty coves, all within a short drive.

Hobbs Choice was a delightful cottage with many extras and lots of space for a family of six. Care should be taken with children & pets as there is quite a lot of passing traffic in the lane. We had a few issues all of which have been reported, so hopefully others will be able to enjoy their time at Hobbs Choice. I would certainly recommend it.

June 2022

We had a delightful week at Hobbs choice, despite alot of autumn rain. It was a spacious place for our family of 5 to spread out an do their own thing, yet be together. Lounging on comfy sofas, snuggled in fluffy throws with a good book in one sitting room, need not bother others watching TV, Netflix or a DVD in another sitting room, or just garden-watching in the conservatory. The seclusion and quaintness of the cottage made for a real get-away-from-it-all break that was really rejuvenating. Lovely beaches to discover nearby, and the welcome basket on arrival was a special touch too. Might just mention the doorways are low in one or two places, so tall folk could learn that the hard way! Highly recommended.
