From its humble beginnings as three farm buildings, this is now one impressive pad! Beautifully converted creating a truly comfortable and welcoming retreat, with some of its agricultural heritage preserved in its design (all nicely cleaned up of course!) the interiors are superbly spacious and there's plenty of room for outdoor living as well.
Tucked away in unspoilt, sleepy Devonshire countryside, close to the Cornwall border, the setting is blissfully rural, yet in a few minutes you can find yourself at the seaside resort of Bude and the amazing north coast, offering the perfect combination of coast and countryside, and two glorious counties to explore – what's not to love about this place?
This is a great house for celebratory trips away or simply a good excuse for family and friends to get together and it will be adored by young and old alike. Set on the first floor the fabulous sitting/dining-room with its high vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and oak flooring invite all to gather, whether it's formal dining around the grand table or cosied up on the sofas for late night chats or to watch a holiday film on the whopping 55 inch TV!
Leading off from the half landing into what was known as 'The Round House' (and it's not hard to see why) is the wonderful kitchen. This is one well stocked kitchen and you have everything you need whether serving up a simple breakfast at the kitchen table, a lazy lunch on the terrace or pulling out all the stops for a culinary masterpiece. There are even some historic recipes on the wall courtesy of the owner's Mum and Grandmother – if Pickled Pig takes your fancy! Taking pride of place is the original mill dating back 100 years, now fully restored and in immaculate condition – although it has retired from its milling duties and is simply there to be admired.
Spread out across the ground floor, with characterful steps throughout, are the bedrooms and bathrooms and here you will find yet another delight, the games-room. This is the chilling out room, for relaxing on the sofa catching up on some TV or challenging each other to a game of table tennis or a pool tournament on the no expense spared pool table. Built from two barns, now connected by a short passage, each part of the house has 2 bedrooms and a bath or shower room along with a lounge area, so it's ideal for 2 families or for those who might want some peace or a little more privacy.
You can enjoy more chilling in the garden with a glass of wine on the terrace or relaxing with a good book on the sun loungers whilst your little treasures burn up more of their endless energy with ball games on the lawn or perhaps suggest a game of hide and seek!
If you need to catch on some work or studying whilst you are away, The Mowhay is superbly equipped for office working. There is a fast, fibre broadband connection, and a large office desk complete with a Captain's swivel chair and even a printer. Plus of course, utter silence and beautiful views across the meadow.
The village of Bradworthy is only a mile away where there's a small selection of shops, a great butchers and cafe along with an annual arts festival and of course that all important village pub.
Spend the day in Bude, building sandcastles on the beach, riding the Atlantic rollers, having fun with crazy golf or indulging in some Cornish ice cream as well as the obligatory pasty. Clovelly is also a must and a fascinating glimpse into the past, with its flower strewn cottages, 14th Century quay and steeply cobbled street – it's totally unique.
Don't forget those walking boots because ramblers are in for a treat, with countryside trails leading from your doorstep or head to the coast and take in the scenery along the rugged dramatic section of coastal footpath running from Hartland Point in the north to Boscastle in the south.
At Tamar Lakes you can try your hand at sailing, paddleboarding and windsurfing or for those who want to take things at a more gentler pace, wander through the nature reserve spotting an abundance of wildlife along the way.
