Olive Tree Cottage
Olive Tree Cottage is the largest of the 3 properties at Higher Widemouth Farm and provides comfortable, centrally heated and beautifully presented accommodation for six people. The property is a converted ironstone farm building so is beautifully cool in hot weather and warm and cosy when the weather is colder. Freshly decorated throughout, the downstairs comprises a handy cloakroom area – ideal for walking boots and jackets, which is just off the large open plan kitchen and lounge. The recently updated kitchen is fully equipped with double oven, microwave, washing machine, Smeg fridge/freezer and a beautiful traditional slate floor. There are stunning views from the kitchen window across the valley and over the surrounding farmland. You will find everything you need to cater for a family of six and guests are welcomed with fresh eggs, milk, tea and sugar so the holiday can start straightaway! As well as comfortable sofas for six people, the living area has a dining table and chairs for six people and flat-screen TV, DVD/CD and free WIFI so you can stay connected to the outside world… if you choose to!
Upstairs there are three bedrooms, one double with en suite shower room, another double and a twin room. The family bathroom benefits from a bath with a shower overhead. All the bedrooms are fresh and bright and provide the perfect accommodation for a family group – whether its parents, children and grandparents, a group of grown-ups or parents with older children who prefer their own bedrooms.
Outside Olive Tree Cottage there is ample parking for two cars and a lovely enclosed rose garden which is shared with Rosemary barn and has outside table and chairs – perfect for al fresco dining. On the other side of the property is a barbecue area with delightful views across the walled paddock and over the fields.
The location of Olive Tree Cottage, at Higher Widemouth Farm is outstanding. Set in acres of rolling farmland, there are only 3 self-catering properties on the farm which creates a quiet and relaxing atmosphere. You are in the middle of the countryside, surrounded by farmland, but a walk of just 10 minutes along a rough track brings you to the centre of the village of Widemouth Bay and the gorgeous surfing beach and coastal path. The property offers the best of both worlds – a short distance from the bustle of the beach and places to eat at Widemouth Bay and the town of Bude with all of its amenities (only 5 minutes in the car) but beautifully secluded in a rural location with views that are second to none.
