Property Location

Forda Farm is nestled above the Coombe Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and special geological interest. Birdsong is the predominant sound with sheep, cattle and the occasional putter of a tractor. On still evenings at high tide, you can hear the surf at Duckpool, a delightful two-mile walk down the valley. The seaside town of Bude is six miles away and offers a wide variety of activities, entertainment and shopping. The North Cornish coast is stunning and unspoilt here. The cliffs are some of the highest and most rugged in the country with spectacular views up and down the coast and across to Lundy Island. It is a wonderful area for glorious walks and bird watching. There are plenty of circular routes taking in both the cliffs and wooded valleys. In the spring there is an abundance of flowers on the cliffs with primroses, bluebells and wild garlic in the woods and valleys. Peregrine falcons, stonechats, ravens, cormorants and oystercatchers are all regularly seen. There are seals in the coastal waters and in the warmer months basking sharks have been spotted from the cliffs. The nearby beaches have wide expanses of clean sand at low tide. There is something for everyone. Some beaches have full facilities including lifeguard cover for surfers and swimmers, refreshments, and toilets; others have almost total seclusion but involve a long walk down — and even longer up! Rockpools invite exploration to both the curious and to budding young marine biologists. Bude has three main beaches Crooklets, Summerleaze & Widemouth. North of Bude are Northcott, Sandymouth & Duckpool beaches. All except the latter have Lifeguard cover.

Bude is Cornwall's most northern town and has been a favourite seaside resort since Victorian times. The coastal scenery surrounding the beaches is quite beautiful, boasting some of the finest sandy beaches and the best surfing in England! The town has excellent facilities and a wide selection of interesting, independent shops. This idyllic area has a large amount of birdlife for the dedicated twitcher and some wonderful, scenic walks along the South West coastal path. The centre of Bude is a lively hub with concerts, dances and fetes as well as other events throughout the season, including an annual Carnival Week. The town has a host of pubs, cafes and restaurants to suit every palate and there is a new Visitors Centre in the Crescent car park, a large children's play area, a 19th-century canal and a small wharf amongst many other attractions. Bude is also home to the internationally acclaimed jazz festival which takes place each August.

Further along the coast is Sandymouth, a large beach ideal for families due to its lovely sand, rock pools and tea rooms. A short drive north over the border into Devon leads to the quaint village of Hartland which has a magnificent church with an amazing painted ceiling and one of the tallest towers in England. Hartland Quay has a hotel and Wreckers Bar as the coast here is littered with wrecks and is a lovely spot for some lunch. Also well worth a visit is the world-famous fishing village of Clovelly. The cobbled, traffic-free, high street is built into a cleft in a 400' high cliff and tumbles its way down past whitewashed cottages festooned with flowers to the tiny working port.

Kilkhampton, which dates back to before Saxon times is the location of the remains of a 12th-century motte and bailey style Norman castle and the church of St James the Great, which is over 450 years old. Both of the two pubs in the village the New Inn and London Inn serve food, there is also a Co-op, Spar, Post Office, electrical retailer, hairdresser, a chippy, both Chinese and Pizza take away establishments.

Tranquil retreat
Reviewed on 06/06/2021

We stayed at barn Cottage as we wanted a break away from all the noise of a town. The cottage is very remote so you would need the use of a car as the next town is 2 miles away. Perfect for what we wanted. Owners were very pleasant, seeing the workings of a farm on a daily basis was lovely. We took our dogs who I think enjoyed the break as much as us and were exhausted on our return.

Great, basic holiday home.
Reviewed on 29/05/2021

Barn Cottage is a lovely little property, with lots of space and good appointments. It is very clean. The view from the living space is very nice: trees, fields, and sky). The patio is good, with a solid table and chairs to enjoy finer weather. The master bedroom is nicely decorated, and has large amounts of storage for a whole family (wardrobes, etc). The bed itself is adequate, standard double. We did not find this property particularly comfortable. The sofas were not of the cosy variety, and too small to snuggle into in the evening. The property did not retain heat well, so did not always have that warm cosy feeling. The bath is a nice size, and the shower generally works well, with decent pressure. The shower temperature does tend to fluctuate a little, but never got particularly cold. The location is amongst tight, poor condition country lanes, and the track up to the property is very rough and bumpy, so would not be suitable for some vehicles (very glad we took our van, rather than the sports car).

Rob & Anne Manfield replied:
Thank you for your review, It was good to have you stay, thank you for leaving the property tidy. As regards the sofas, we find that the leather sofas are easier to keep hygienically clean these days but we accept that this comes with a compromise in comfort. As you are aware we are unable to do anything about the narrow lanes and they are in better condition than some of the major roads. We are used to them and they are not meant for speed and originally used for horses and carts, this most people find adds to the quaintness and rural idyll.

A great location and friendly hosts
Reviewed on 30/09/2020

The property was very comfortable, in a great quiet location. It had no light pollution outside, so you could see the stars. Our hosts were lovely and couldn't do enough to help us, if we needed it. Everything was clean and organised, we had plenty of space. Ideal for families or just two people.

Rob & Anne replied:
Thank you for your review, it was very good of you to take the time to do this. We enjoyed having you and thank you as well for cleaning up before you left

Lovely little cottage on a working farm. Owners were very nice and very helpful. Quite remote but enjoyed the quietness, very relaxing. Only one point think it could do with up dating inside to make it a bit more comfy.

Rob & Anne replied:
Thank you for taking the time to review Barn Cottage. Sorry you were not as comfortable as you had hoped. We have had to remove cushions and some furnishings due to the current circumstances, so this might have had some effect on your comfort. The furniture is mostly new or near new and it is difficult to know what we should do to improve, but we will certainly bear your comments in mind.
