Description from owner
The Granary Cottage is a classically charming and yet spacious 2 bedroomed stone cottage.
It is fantastically located only 10 minutes from one of Cornwall's best surfing beaches and just a few miles from the delightful Cornish town of Bude. Hidden down a secluded drive the cottage offers both peace and easy accessibility. The cottage is set within a private courtyard of three cottages.
The cottage has been equipped with everything you would expect to find in a home from home. Particular care has been taken when selecting beds and sofas to help ensure a comfortable and relaxing stay. Previous guests have commented on how comfortable and well equipped the cottage is.
Guests staying at The Granary Cottage have free access to the 75 acre estate. There is space in abundance with places for picnics and kite flying, streams, woods and mud, all making it a great location for a family holiday.
There are walks from the estate to places like English Heritage's Penhallam Manor, and some wonderful cliff top walks along the coastal path. Quiet nature lovers may get to see some of the amazing wildlife that lives on the estate including: Barn Owls, Bats, Deer, Badgers, Foxes, Buzzards, Peregrine Falcons, Woodpeckers, Moles, Hares, Rabbits, Tawny Owls, Jays, Wagtails and occasional Otters ( to name just a few). The woods and hedgerows are filled with wild flowers and give a lovely changing scene throughout the year.
Cyclists love the fact that we are located just off National Cycle Route 3 and very well located to many other fantastic cycle routes and trails. We have places to store bikes and connections with cycle hire shops who can loan bikes or service your own. We are recommended by 1sw- the cycle website.
The North Cornwall coast is on our doorstep making this an excellent location for surfers and body-boarders or those wishing to build sand castles and investigate rock pools. We are only a short drive from many amazing beaches and secluded coves. We have a wash down point to de-sand you when you return and plenty of undercover provision for storing boards and drip-drying wetsuits.

Beautiful cottages in a great location. Bude was easily accessible and the driveway gives the privacy needed to relax on your holiday. Hosts were lovely and made us very well.
“The best of both worlds - a quiet rural retreat with the sea still on your doorstep!”
Lovely cottage. 10 mins by car to Widemouth beach and 15 mins to Bude. A great base to explore north Cornwall with the children. Bottle of fizz waiting for us on arrival which went down very well that night after our 8 hour drive :), a pint of milk would also have been very welcomed too! Rebecca was great at providing us details of where was good to eat and go with the kids etc. Only a little note to say that there was a child gate downstairs, but with our on the go toddler, a stair gate upstairs would have been handy! What was lovely though is the fact that the children could wander freely outside, as the cottage is one of only 3 on the whole estate. We had a very comfortable stay.
Response from the owner Thank you for your kind words. We're really pleased that you enjoyed the location and found the cottage to be a very comfortable and that you had a good relaxing stay. We hope that we will be able to welcome you back at some point in the future.
“Perfect place for a very relaxing quiet holiday”

“The Granary has extremely comfortable and well-equipped accommodation.”
We thoroughly enjoyed walking in all the woodland surrounding the property. Access to the local beaches, which were lovely, even in March, was easy and shopping in nearby Bude was a very pleasant exp… More

“Beauty and peace to restore the spirits”
Stoneleigh Knowle is set in stunningly peaceful grounds - no sounds apart from wildlife and no light apart from what you generate at the cottage. It provides its own lovely walks that give a feel of adventure through long grass and woodlands. Near by are all the attractions of Cornish cliffs and beaches; Cornish pasties and ice cream for a treat after long treks up and down the cliff top paths. Perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle of life in the hectic South East.
