    “We absolutely loved Salty Cottage.”

    Comfy beds, had everything we needed and a beautiful garden which the dogs loved. Would love to go back.

The property

About a mile from Morwenstow's excellent pub and award-winning tea rooms, a detached cottage, recently renovated and made smart.

It faces its enclosed lawned garden with meadows and two other dwellings beyond.

Just over ½ mile of footpath leads to the Coast Path and Stanbury Mouth cove (rocky path down to beach - not for the faint-hearted, but great surfing). From garden, door to open-plan living/dining room with woodburner and TV/DVD.

Galley kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker/separate hob), through to utility room (for drying dogs, surfing/walking gear) with washing machine and loo.

Two ground floor bedrooms - a double (5' bed), and a twin.

Stairs from living room up to another double bedroom (5' bed) with high beamed ceiling to the apex and en suite bathroom (suite plus hand-shower); shower-room (suite).

A fantastic place to relax, unwind, find great surfing coves or just walk to the pub by footpath (remember torch!). Morwenstow: high hamlet with fascinating church (legendary 19th century vicar), good food pub, acclaimed tea rooms, at the head of a combe to the sea (cliffs).

Close to the highest cliffs in Cornwall (good walking, birdwatching).

National Trust owned cove beach, 2½ miles.

Good pony-trekking nearby; Bude, 7 miles.

The Tamara Way, a 87 miles coast to coast walking route, pass near Salty Cottage, The starting point of this amazing nature filled track is located in Morwenstow, around 1 mile away from the cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location


Kilkhampton 6 miles; Bude 10 miles.

Morwenstow is a rural hamlet set within the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, approximately ten miles north of the coastal resort of Bude, complete with a well-respected pub (the 13th C Bush Inn) and the fabulous Rectory Tea Rooms next to Morwenstow Church. This breathtaking stretch of rugged coastline features delightful National Trust walks along the clifftops and through the woodlands within Coombe Valley, as well as numerous coves including Duckpool, Stanbury and Marsland Mouth. There is plenty of history to discover around the parish church regarding the renowned Reverend Hawker, a notable figure from Cornwall's past. Six miles away, the self-contained village of Kilkhampton offers day-to-day shopping facilities, a café and a pub and supermarkets are only a little further afield at the bustling sea-side town of Bude.
