    “Cottage can be very noisy from the garage workshop directly beneath the accommodation.”

    Not good for spending a peaceful time indoors or in the garden. But stunningly beautiful location, close to the SW footpath, church and excellent tearooms. 'Double' bedroom scarcely bigger than the bed. Needs redecorating throughout.

The property

Carrows Stable is a stunning stable conversion settled in the quiet Cornish hamlet of Morwenstow, sitting at the top of a long drive leading up to The Old Vicarage, built by the famous Revered Hawker.

The property is set mostly over the first-floor and enjoys vintage features like the art deco low arched windows and exposed beams, with valley sea views to enjoy too, it's perfect for those seeking a tranquil base not far from the sea.

Following a wonderful day of activities, begin to relax within the open-plan living space, stepping across the wooden floors to the seating area to unwind, or heading into the pretty blue fitted kitchen to rustle up a tasty meal.

Discover all the appliances you need here and gather at the dining table and chairs at mealtimes, or head outside to the garden lawn in sunny weather to dine alfresco on the furniture.

The décor throughout the property is classic country style, continuing its elegance into the super-king-size bedroom on the first floor, boasting a high, vaulted ceiling above and a blush pink theme, with an en-suite bathroom home to a roll-top bath with handheld shower.

A double bedroom also rests on this floor featuring an en-suite shower room, whilst down on the ground floor, guests can find the attractive twin room served by its own en-suite bathroom, affording all guests with a private space to freshen up.

The property rests next door to The Old Vicarage, built by Reverend Hawker, famous for introducing Harvest Festivals and helping shipwrecked mariners, with closer inspection revealing the vicarage's chimneys to be models of church towers, providing some interesting architecture on your doorstep.

Walk along the footpath to the coast, enjoying the valley scenery before being met with the beautiful seascapes, giving easy access to the South West Coast Path which walkers are sure to love, making sure to visit Hawker's Hut built into the side of the cliff.

Excellent seasonal tea rooms can be found at the top of the drive, perfect for an afternoon treat, while the much-loved pub, The Bush Inn, is within a short stroll too.

Venture over to the neighbouring hamlet of Shop to find the nearest convenience store to Carrows Stable, with the town of Kilkhampton also offering further amenities.

Plenty of beaches lie along the coast, with smaller, quieter spots like Duckpool Bay, and larger stretches like Sandymouth Beach and Bude's central Summerleaze Beach with the fantastic Bude Sea Pool.

Walk along Bude's Breakwater before heading up to Compass Point to soak up the sunset over the town, with lots of restaurants and pubs to enjoy, along with attractions like the history museum within The Castle Bude.

Make amazing memories in exceptionally beautiful surroundings at Carrow Stables in Cornwall.
