In Woolley, a cosy Grade II listed, detached, thatched house which has been extended from its 18th cent. beginnings, making it big and roomy. The original part has some typical low lintels (5'4"), flagstone floors and thick walls. It is surrounded by a garden (table/chairs, barbecue, games shed with table tennis, toys) with lawn, shrubs, mature trees and views over fields to Devon. Sunny cottage-garden courtyard (table/chairs) to the front. From garden, door to porch (room for coats/boots) to flagstone-floored and beamed kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, larder fridge, electric cooker). Snug living room with 5'10" beams, decorative aga, flagstone floor, window seats and TV/Sky/DVD. Four steps up to large sunlight-filled living/dining room with double-storey beamed ceiling to apex, wood floor and French windows to lawn; from it, stairs up to gallery/den with day bed (sleeps 2). Ground-floor double bedroom; shower-room (suite) and bathroom (suite, shower over bath). From kitchen, stairs (stairgate) up to three more bedrooms - a big roomy double (footboard) with beams (one 5'), and two singles (one with limited clothes-hanging space). Outside laundry (washing machine, tumble drier, freezer, room for bicycles/surfboards). A smashing house with bags of space for everyone in a beautiful, unspoiled area.

WOOLLEY Bude is a fabulous coastal town that once visited you will want to come back to time and time again. Bude has something for everyone, great beaches for relaxing, and building sandcastles on, rock pools for investigating at low tide and cafes to watch it all from. The rolling waves are great for surfing all year round, and the footpaths by the restored canal or on the North Cornwall coastal path offer you a superb opportunity to explore and appreciate the outstanding countryside. Bude also has a superb golf course, indoor swimming pool, bowling alley/indoor play area and Heritage Centre at Bude Castle. It also has a good selection of local shops, supermarkets, cafes, pubs, restaurants and excellent Information Centre. Within a short drive are the remains of a huge iron age hill fort at Warbstow Bury, from where panoramic views can be seen. For days out, take the coast road north to see the lonely lighthouse above the sea at Hartland Point or walk or ride a donkey down the steep and cobbled village street (no cars allowed) of beautiful Clovelly to the harbour and the pub far below. Follow the coast in the other direction and there's the little cove of Crackington Haven, Boscastle, King Arthur's castle at Tintagel, Doc Martin's Port Wenn at Port Isaac and yet more great surfing beaches at Polzeath.
