Furlongs sleeps up to eight guests in four bedrooms and offers spacious self-catering where guests can enjoy plenty of space both inside and out as well as excellent facilities including an indoor heated swimming pool (exclusive use), sauna, games room and open fire giving it strong all year round appeal.
Perfect for large groups of friends or families (one or two), Furlongs is located on North Cornwall's dramatic north coast just a mile from the nearest beach and three miles from the popular seaside resort of Bude - a haven for surfers with its glorious golden sands, golf course and great choice of pubs and restaurants.
The property sits on the outskirts of the Cornish village of Kilkhampton where you will find shops for provisions, takeaways, two pubs and an impressive church keeping a watchful eye over the village.
For those who enjoy walking you are spoilt for choice with great opportunities both inland through countryside and forest, and along the South West Coastal Path. For lazy days on the beach, head to Duckpool or Sandymouth (just a mile away) or the expansive sands of Bude with your surf board (surf board hire and tuition available locally). Tamar Lakes offers windsurfing as well as an Otter Sanctuary, or take a boat trip for sea fishing (you may be lucky enough to catch supper for everyone!).
Bring your bike and explore the pretty Cornish lanes bursting with colour in the milder months or spend your days exploring the areas many attractions including the world famous Eden Project, spectacular Michael's Mount, the historic dockyard at Plymouth, Padstow with its fantastic restaurants, or The Milky Way and The Big Sheep for a day the younger ones won't forget. The choices are endless!
