Set down leafy lanes, in the heart of the countryside and with the shortest of drives to a stunning stretch of the north Cornish coastline, Welcome to The Carriage House.
This single-storey detached cottage has its own enclosed garden and sunny patio-area and with the warming wood-burner in the open plan living-room, this is an ideal retreat whatever the weather.
Situated on the boundary wall from the neighbour’s farm and cowshed, in glorious Cornish countryside, The Carriage House is one of five cottages at the picturesque Hale Farm. With easy access to the small vibrant harbourside village of Port Isaac, famous for The Fisherman’s Friends, TVs Doc Martin and celebrity chef Nathan Outlaw, and stunning beaches by the bucketful, this is an excellent base from which to set off on each day’s adventures.
There is so much to do in north Cornwall with the area being littered with a great choice of destinations and days out. A short drive away, the beaches of Daymer Bay, Polzeath and Rock are a must for surfers and paddlers alike. For those wishing to investigate Port Isaac and Padstow, the choice of seaside shops, art galleries, tea-rooms and pubs is extensive.
Hire a bike and cycle along the Camel Trail heading in one direction to Padstow on the coast and to Wenford Bridge on Bodmin Moor in the opposite – it’s a great ride for all the family. In Padstow you will find a plethora of restaurants and shops to visit but do not miss out on the foot ferry over to Rock as this is a great jaunt across the water.
At Port Isaac, the Michelin starred chef, Nathan Outlaw, has the tapas-style Fish Kitchen next to the harbour along with his fine dining restaurant, voted the number one restaurant in the Good Food Guide for 2018! At trendy Rock, the Mariners and the Rock Inn serve locally brewed Sharps beer, locally sourced fish dishes and steaks supplied by the renowned Philip Warren Butchers.
For those quick snacks, the local baker Malcolm Barnecutt bakes great pasties to take away, which can be enjoyed on the local beaches; or closer to home the renowned St Kew Inn serves up tasty traditional food and local ales.
