We have recently renovated the cottage. Upstairs, we have built into the eaves, added roof lights and re configured the space, introducing an en-suite to the master bedroom. The cottage now has two sun-flooded bedrooms and is bright and airy. One twin, one king-size double. Both bedrooms have Egyptian cotton bedding. The windows and roof lights have blackout blinds for cosy lie ins.
The family bathroom has a roll top bath and a heated towel rail. The en-suite wet room has a wonderful ‘rainforest’ style shower.
The Living room has two sofas and a wood burner for cosy nights in. There is a flat-screen TV with DVD player. There is also an iPod dock, Wi-Fi, and a wide selection of DVDs and games for both parents and kids. The kitchen is equipped with all mod cons including a dishwasher, microwave and washing machine/tumble dryer.
The interiors are clean and crisp with pops of colour and whitewashed tongue and groove.
Externally, Escallonia has a small, secure garden to the front. It’s south facing and has seating and a BBQ.
There are numerous public footpaths on the cottage’s doorstep taking you to the coast, and the South West Coastal Path so it’s a perfect base for walkers. Best of all though, it’s only a twenty-minute walk to our favourite beach Northcott Mouth, and a short detour to the ‘legend’ that is Margaret and her famous caravan for the best cream tea in the west.
Poughill has a good local pub, which serves food, just a five-minute walk from Escallonia Cottage. If you want to party in Bude and eat out in one of its many wonderful restaurants you can even walk home. It’s about 20 minutes.
