Starlings Cottage
North Cornwall

£344 - £800 per week

Starlings Cottage is a delightful holiday home, located at the far end of a substantial farmhouse, on a working farm. Local Delabole slate steps, iron work with brick accents, solid wooden flooring and a beautiful, original, inglenook fireplace, with the old cauldron, spit and cloam oven retained, all depict the originality of this super property. These rare features create tremendous atmosphere, especially when the woodburner is lit in the evening, after an adventurous day exploring. The view from the lawned area is stunning, you can see far along the coastline, and on a fine day, even Lundy island is in clear view. The living space is open plan, with a well equipped kitchen and the dining and seating area is spacious yet cosy, you'll have all you need to enjoy a holiday, overlooking the sea.

A countryside holiday in a quiet hinterland corner of the North Coast, with a view which is so vast and beautiful you'll never tire of the panoramic vantage point. From the grass area, children can enjoy the play equipment, whilst you sit and enjoy your favourite tipple. Take your morning coffee outside and watch the sunrise to the morning chorus of birdsong, or marvel at glorious sunsets in the evening, with vivid and earth warming vibrance. Starlings Cottage is located at the far end of the original farmstead at Higher Trewint, the farm is a working farm and is just under two miles from the Atlantic Highway, for easy access to explore the surrounding areas. Bude is only an 8 mile drive, where you will find many shops, supermarkets, eateries and large sandy beaches. There are public footpaths close to the property, so on a beautiful day, you can pack up a picnic and walk towards the coast to join the South West Coastal path. You will discover pretty coves at Millook and Wanson beaches, which nestle just beside Widemouth Bay, the larger sandy beach, perfect for swimming and surfing. If you want to discover the cream of the coastline, be it the larger beaches or pretty and unique coves, this holiday destination will fulfil it all.

My family was here for a week and this is a wonderful place, but little far from the main road A39. Good surroundings. Owner lives next to property and very helpful. Got all the equipment needed for a relaxing holiday including a washing machine and a tumble dryer.

About 5 miles from the closest beach which is not very crowded. Bude is about 7 miles away with lot of shops.

For the price is well worth.

A comfortable clean well equipped lovely cottage on a working farm. The views from the beautifully tended communal gardens were spectacular. Lovely hosts. Close to Bude and other amenities We will definitely return. Thank you Mandie Loades

Had a lovely stay at the Starlings Cottage. The house was clean and modern, the beds were comfortable and the wifi was good. We had a welcome from the owners and there was a few things in the house for us such as biscuits and tea. The house is very secluded (apart from being attached to the owners house) which is very nice but means you have to drive to get anywhere, Boscastle is especially nice. Overall a lovely visit and the only warning I’d give to other guests is that if you see signs saying “to the beach”, near the house, do not follow them as the path seems to no longer exist and you end up at a fence!
