Edgehill is in a quiet rural location off the A39, 1 mile from the SW coast path and surfing beaches of Widemouth Bay, 2 miles from Bude town. You have use of our garden, and the kitchen for light cooking in the evening. A car is essential, free parking provided.

The space

This accommodation is for 1 or 2 people and is on the ground floor off the entrance hall. It consists of a comfortable double bedroom and the use of a pleasant sitting area that has a sofa, TV, DVD's, games and tea and coffee making facilities in a room immediately next door. The double room has plenty of wardrobe and drawer space, and is adjacent to your own bathroom which has a bath, shower, washbasin and lavatory. We provide bathrobes and ensure your privacy.

We do have a travel cot, changing table and high chair available should you wish to bring a baby.

If you would like to book accomodation for 3 or 4 people you can do so through my other Airbnb listing, (Countryside and Coast sleeps 4). This will enable you to also book the twin room for 2 more people to sleep in.
Each morning we will provide a substantial breakfast but not a cooked one, in our kitchen.
The Artist mentioned is my partner Kevin who paints watercolour landscapes in his garden studio, and exhibits around the UK.

Guest access

Access to the house is through our front door and your bedrooms and bathroom are just off the entrance hall on the ground floor. They can be screened off for your privacy. Breakfast is served in our kitchen and we have a pleasant terrace and a large garden that you are most welcome to use. You are welcome to cook and eat light meals in our kitchen in the evenings but we prefer that you use the sitting room we have provided for you after that and at other times of day.

Interaction with guests

We will be living in the house during your stay, we sleep upstairs. We would not want to intrude on your privacy but consider ourselves to be friendly relaxed people who are happy to chat and recommend things for you to do in the area.

Other things to note

We are situated in a very quiet area, there is one restaurant/coffee bar within walking distance, (10 mins), other than that you need a car. To walk into town from our house is 45 minutes, (beautiful walk) and 30 minutes walk takes you to the beach and the Bay View Inn. Marhamchurch village is one mile away, again a nice walk and a pub.

Kate was extremely welcoming and put the kettle on as soon as I arrived, which I loved. Her and her partner were extremely friendly and gave suggestions and where to eat and what to do. The house was extremely clean and tidy and was perfectly situated with just a short drive to the beach and up to Bude. I throughly enjoyed my stay there and if I'm ever in Bude again I know where my first port of call will be.

From the moment we arrived Kate was a super host. The accommodation was clean and perfect for us. It was quiet and easy to get to. We were able to access the lovely gardens and even hang bathing suits and towels outside.Her breakfast was super and healthy, with lots of variety. She even went out of her way to introduce us to Cornish cheese. Her husband's stunning landscape watercolour paintings are throughout the home. Kate is so knowledgeable about Cornwall. She even has maps, tourist guides and Cornish Magazines. This was our first Airbnb and we were absolutely impressed. Her home is suitable for any visiting person or group. Thanks Kate!

Kate and Kevin were fantastic from the off and made us feel at home instantly. Our bedroom had a very comfortable bed and lots of storage and we had the luxury of our own sitting area and private bathroom. Our hosts were very knowledgeable about the area and gave us some excellent tips on where to visit. Coming into Kate's kitchen in the morning was a real treat, the breakfast table layed out with fruits and cereal, toast and jams, fruit juice and coffee...she didn't want us hungry! We would recommend this place to any of our friends for many reasons, but especially because of Kate and Kevin. Thank you both for a fantastic weekend, we will not hesitate to come and stay with you guys again when we come back next year. Sarah and Stretch xx

We really enjoyed our trip to Cornwall. Kate and Kevin were fantastic hosts and very knowledgeable about the area - it was handy being able to bounce ideas off them. They also made us feel very welcome in their home. Thanks again for the Easter eggs, Kate! The house was very comfortable and in a great location for our explorations around the northern parts of Cornwall. We hope to be back again sometime to stay with Kate and Kevin, and explore all that Cornwall has to offer!

We've had a great time staying with Kate and absolutely recommend her as a host. She is an extremely hospitable person and made us feel well and at home in every way possible. The rooms are comfortable and clean (as can be seen in her pictures); the breakfast is delightful. As a guest, you'll have as much privacy as you want. However, Kate is both a great person to talk to and a very valuable resource for information about the area and what to see. We'd definitely consider coming visiting her again.

I am fortunate to have lived in North Cornwall for over 30 years. We have had many visitors during this time, both friends and family and have enjoyed sharing with them the things we love about the area. I live with Kevin who is a landscape painter, we have four children, all grown up and gone to the cities, hence the empty bedrooms!
I am a retired community midwife happily filling my time with work for a local charity, gardening, walking, books, swimming and travelling. Also the odd bottle of wine with friends doesn't go amiss!
When travelling we like to use Airbnb when we can as meeting local people is often the best part of the trip.
