The cottage is well equipped and comfortably furnished and overlooks the village square. There is a bench in the small front garden to sit and watch the world go by. Marhamchurch is a friendly village with central pub, churches, play area and within walking distance a bistro with varied menu and lakeside views. There is plenty of parking adjacent to the cottage in the square.
Short breaks available - contact owner if dates you require not advertised.
There are plenty of lovely walks around the village and you can stroll into the seaside town of Bude along the canal towpath which has been recently upgraded with new lock gates, or cycle along the cycle way. Both routes take you past the Bude Marshes nature reserve where you may see a variety of birds. Once in Bude, you could take a rowing boat out on the canal, surf on our wonderful beaches, swim in the popular sea-pool, play golf, go 10 pin bowling, shop, eat out or many other activities. Tourist information is provided.
Many locals enjoy the walk from Marhamchurch, over the cliffs to the magnificent beach at Widemouth Bay which is remowned for surfing but also has rock-pools and is lovely for picnicking. There are cafes and a pub at Widemouth to sustain you for the walk back!
The entrance to the village playpark and revel field is approx 20yds away providing plenty of fun for children.
