Situated just south of Wadebridge, North Cornwall, is this really delightful, detached and totally refurbished part eighteenth century stone Cornish cottage. The period character has been carefully retained and it features lots of beams and tasteful attractive soft furnishings. Set in a secluded wooded valley with peaceful views and surrounded by large enclosed landscaped gardens (designed by a Chelsea Flower Show Gold medallist), Hay Cottage not only provides exceptionally high quality and comfortable accommodation, but is ideally placed to explore the North Cornwall Coast with its magnificent sandy beaches and excellent surfing opportunities. Within 15 minutes of the cottage is the beautiful Camel estuary, fringed with unspoilt sandy beaches that open out to the superb horseshoe bay at Polzeath where the Atlantic rollers provide great surfing, or take the ferry from Rock to Padstow and indulge in cream teas and sample fine fare at renowned seafood restaurants. There are also bracing cliff top walks from Pentire Point to Port Isaac and the Camel Trail for cyclists is less than a mile from Hay Cottage, which links Bodmin, Wadebridge and Padstow. You will even be greeted by a delicous cream tea on arrival.
