The Round House Description

‘The Round House’ is a luxury stone cottage, a barn conversion, on the edge of fabulous & well known Coombe Valley (a favourite with ramblers), 2 miles from Kilkhampton village and 5 miles from Bude, North Cornwall. A 2 miles walk via footpaths down through National Trust Coombe Valley to Duckpool beauty spot and beach, leading on to miles of coastal and beach walks - great for walkers. Nearby Bude is a beach resort, with large classic sandy beaches, a huge free open air beach swimming pool and other attractions associated with a resort town. The cottage is in an attractive rural setting on a working dairy farm, with grass gardens. Farm play field with goal posts & swings. Approx 5 minutes stroll over to free fishing on the farm’s 2 ponds. One pond (approx 66 yards long) was restocked with coarse fish during 2010 (tench, golden rudd & carp). Tench up to 3lbs and carp up to 10lbs. Fun fishing (not for serious fishermen). The second pond dates back to mediaeval times and was originally used as a carp pond by monks in the 12th century and is one of the oldest carp ponds in the country (featured on a T.V. programme). The pond has now been set aside as a nature sanctuary and migratory birds including ducks commonly make an appearance. The ponds are in a pretty, wooded setting, making a great venue for picnics, fishing, or just to enjoy the scenery. The more energetic may enjoy the walk across the adjacent field (with panoramic views over the countryside) along the footpath through the farm’s 13 acres of woodland.
