Lee Barton Farmhouse Description
Lee Barton Farmhouse, a lovingly modernised mid-terraced farmhouse in Morwenstow hamlet near Kilkhampton village, 5 miles from the beaches at Bude, North Cornwall. Duckpool seaside beauty spot & beach 2 and a half miles. The farmhouse retains many character features such as original window seats, exposed beams, etc. Situated on a 200 acre beef, dairy & corn farm. A pretty, rural setting with pleasant walks on the farm’s woods and fields. The farmhouse opens onto the large rear farm gardens and orchard as shown in photo. Spectacular cliff & beach walks along this National Trust coastline. A lovely National Trust footpath walk leading from the farm to Coombe Valley and the beach. Approx a 5 minutes stroll to free fishing on the farm’s 2 ponds, 1 of which dates back to medieval times and earlier. One pond, approx 66 yards long, is stocked with coarse fish (carp over 10lb, tench & golden rudd up to 3lb). The other pond, which was originally used as a carp pond by local monks back in the 12th century and is one of the oldest in the country (featured on a T.V. programme) has been set aside as a nature sanctuary, often hosting migratory birds such as ducks. What makes the ponds so attractive is that they are in a wooded setting, making a lovely venue for picnics, fishing, or just to enjoy the scenery. Farm play field with goal post, swings, etc.
Bedroom 1 has 1 double bed. Bedroom 2 has 4 single beds. Lounge/diner now with a large widescreen T.V. (surround sound), DVD and open fire. Kitchen with an electric cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine and dishwasher. Bathroom with bath & overhead shower.
