Mill Cottage is a delightful mid-terrace barn conversion, offering lovely rural views over the surrounding north Cornwall countryside and less than two miles from pretty Crackington Haven beach with spectacular coastal vistas and glorious walks. The cottage sits in an exclusive quadrangle of holiday cottages called Roundhayes Farm, around a pretty communal courtyard to the front, and has gorgeous rural views with sea glimpses to the rear. The deck and garden are accessed via patio doors from the light and airy sitting-room and on a summer's evening the sun sets at the bottom of the garden making the deck the perfect place to sit with a glass of wine and watch the sun go down.
Step over the threshold at the front of the cottage and enter the large, well-equipped kitchen/dining-room with oodles of space for everyone. The sociable dining-table and chairs allow the clan to gather round the table to chat with the chef, or perhaps sit in the snug 'love seat' and relax with a drink. A handy Echo Dot (Alexa) is situated in the kitchen, the ideal helping hand when it comes to planning your day out. This quirky cottage is arranged over four levels with a short flight of steps leading down from the kitchen to the sitting-room which is light and bright thanks to a double height ceiling with reclaimed beams. A fabulous wood-burner will keep you warm in winter months and the cosy sofa is the perfect place to sit and relax watching the Smart TV. A handy cloakroom is on the ground floor and leading up a short flight of stairs from the sitting-room is a cosy reading nook, tucked away and the ideal place for a quiet holiday read.
Up another short staircase the two bedrooms await. The charming double bedroom has a four-foot six inch, super-comfy, memory foam bed, exposed beams and stonework. Next door, the pretty twin bedroom has two two-foot six inch beds and a lovely outlook over the quadrangle of barns to the front. The small family bathroom has a bath with electric shower over so you can choose between either a long soak or a quick refreshing shower after a day of adventure. All the rooms in the cottage are warmed via individual wall-mounted electric heaters.
Outside the enclosed garden has far reaching views over the surrounding countryside and a raised deck area, the perfect place to enjoy dreamy al fresco dining whilst the children play on the lawn. Mill Cottage is a lovely family holiday home which will welcome you at any time of year.
With the delights of north Cornwall on your doorstep, you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to exploring the area. Beautiful Boscastle is a mere five miles away where you will find an eclectic assortment of shops, galleries, eateries and of course the picturesque harbour. Closer to home, Crackington Haven is renowned for its stunning sunsets and surf. With two excellent cafes and a great pub overlooking the beach, this really is a jewel in the crown of the north coast. The market town of Bude is a short car journey away and offers a great selection of independent shops, cafes and restaurants. The gorgeous beaches at Bude invite you to spend dreamy days by the sea and the iconic sea pool beckons at any time of year. On inclement days, seek out the Rebel Cinema which shows the latest movies and is only ten minutes' drive away at Treskinnick Cross.
At Roundhayes Farm there is parking for one vehicle plus a guest vehicle in the communal car park which is outside the quadrangle of barns and accessed via several steps. There is also a communal tennis court which you are welcome to use on a first come, first served basis. Once discovered we are sure you will return year after year to Mill Cottage.
