Kilkhampton

Kilkhampton is a small traditional cornish village dating from at least Anglo Saxon times.  A legacy of this period is the superb St James the Great Church (dating from the 12th cent) which sits in the middle of the village and is well worth a visit.  Large for a village church and among other features boasts an impressive 12th cent doorway, late norman doorframe, carved tudor pews and a gothic interior.  Slender monolith granite pillars from Lundy Island support the  church. Kilkhampton castle is a short walk from the village.
There are two pubs in the village (The London Inn and the New Inn) providing restaurants and good food.  2 general stores and a butcher's shop.  On the edge of the village is Penstowe Manor Holiday Park, centred on the old manor house and offering quality entertainment during the season (can usually pay upon entry). Footpaths lead from the village; bringing opportunities for walkers to explore by foot the spectacular coastline and Coombe Valley and other walks into Stratton village continuing  into Bude.
