Woodlands Manor Farm

As the name suggests, Woodland Manor Farm is a handsome former farm, set in 37 acres of unspoilt countryside, close to the seaside town of Bude; a treat for lovers of the north Cornwall coast. 

Woodlands is 2 miles from the village of Kilkhampton, off the beaten track but close to amenities including a choice of village shops and pubs. The beaches of Bude and the dramatic coastline are just 6 miles to the south.

The accommodation at Woodlands is spread across a cluster of houses, barns and cottages. The largest, the Manor House, is the grandest, with our main spaces for dining and holding morning writing workshops. The house is Grade 2 listed  and oozes atmosphere,  with wood panelling  and a handsome fireplace in the main sitting room.

Bluebell Cottage and Rose Cottage are adjacent, two pretty granite and slate houses with cosy interiors and a choice of double and twin bedrooms. The Stables, Honeysuckle Cottage and the Coach House complete the accomodation, all close together around the impressive farm yard with sweeping views across the land beyond and access to sheltered and sunny gardens.

In all the houses you will find slate and wood floors, wood burning fires, farmhouse kitchens and plenty of tucked away spots in which to write, read and relax. The indoor swimming pool is an extra treat; we can’t wait to try it.

The location will shave a good chunk of time off the journey for those travelling down to us from up country (and pretty well everywhere is up country from Cornwall!).
