Cobble Cottage is situated in a lovely quiet courtyard. Just outside the courtyard is the village square with all the main amenities of the village (including two great pubs, tea rooms, fish & chip shop, Pizzeria, two local food shops, post office, butchers).
There are very few properties to rent that have such a good location as Cobble Cottage does. We are located at the head of the Coombe Valley in the beautiful rural part of North Cornwall.
