This charming cottage on a working beef and sheep farm offers the very best of coast and country for you to explore.

Set amongst beautiful rolling countryside, yet minutes away from stunning sandy surfing beaches and the vibrant coastal town of Bude.

Our ponies will be waiting to welcome you.

Penfound Country Cottage is a self-catering holiday cottage situated on a working farm in Poundstock, near the coastal town of Bude in North Cornwall. The farm and cottage were originally part of the historic, beautiful old Penfound Manor Estate, steeped in history dating back to the 12th century as mentioned in the Doomsday Book. The cottage captures a true rural feel and enjoys uninterrupted views over distant rolling countryside and overlooks a large lawn and orchard, which is often occupied by our Shetland pony Sugar and pony Annie, who will no doubt be waiting at the fence for treats.

The well equipped single storey barn conversion can accommodate up to 4 persons, furnished to a high standard with the property reflecting its farm heritage. While on the farm you can enjoy a walk where you might see baby lambs and cows and calves in the fields. There are also ancient woodlands full of wildlife for you to explore with footpaths on your doorstep. You can rent the property anytime from April through to the end of September, so come and escape to the countryside and enjoy a peaceful and relaxing holiday. The cottage is just a short drive from the sandy beaches of Widemouth Bay, with it's mile long stretch of flat sand, which is also renowned for it's high quality surfing and dramatic cliff top walks.

Further along the coast, a 10 minute drive takes you in to the vibrant seaside town of Bude with its abundance of shops, restaurants, pubs and cafes which are renowned for their cornish pasties and clotted cream teas. Bude also offers an outdoor sea pool, indoor fun pool, rowing and fishing on the canal, 18 hole golf course as well as 10 pin bowling and indoor soft play zone. While in North Cornwall visit the nearby historical and picturesque villages of Boscastle and Tintagel which is surrounded in the magic and legends of King Arthur. The historic cobbled fishing village of Clovelly is not far away in North Devon where you can still see sledges being used by locals to ferry goods. Further down the coast you can find the world renowned and spectacular Eden Project, with its tropical domes and educational facilities. There are hundreds of things for families with children to do including the theme parks like Camel Creek Adventure Park, Woodlands and Flambards, many cycle paths, or you may fancy a day out on Dartmoor, Exmoor and Bodmin Moor to name a few.
