Francis' is a delightful mid-terraced cottage that provides a welcome year-round retreat – as soon as you walk over the threshold you will feel your shoulders drop.
The lovely, comfortable open plan living-room has an open fire, and the large patio doors make the most of the wonderful sea views.
The beautifully-styled bedrooms, one with a king-size bed, will not disappoint.
From the patio-area you can enjoy peace, quiet and the hush of the Atlantic.
Francis' is situated in beautiful St Gennys, surrounded by National Trust land and in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, enjoying glorious unspoilt views to the sea, across to Lundy Island and along the Cornish coastline to Bude and beyond, sheltering on the cliffside the enclosed garden has stunning views out to sea.
For walkers, winding cliff paths lead through unspoilt countryside and valleys that are part of the Heritage Coast and protected by the National Trust. The cliffs and beach of Crackington Haven are close by offering excellent cafes, pubs and quaint shops. Surfers can enjoy the waves at many of the north coast beaches, whilst nearby are the bustling town of Bude and the sandy shores of Widemouth Bay.
