About Mrs D Hide

We are originally from Hertfordshire but moved to Cornwall about 20 years ago. We have converted the barns at Crockwood Farm with our own fair hands and look forward to welcoming you to Coombe Cottage. We live on site and will be only too pleased to answer any questions you may have.

What makes this barn unique

There is a lot of wildlife to be found around our 8 acres. Deer are regular visitors together with buzzards, pheasants and a wide variety of garden birds. This is particularly so in the autumn, winter and spring. Star gazers will also like the lack of light pollution, especially on a cold, clear winters evening.

The property is close to Bude but is in its own peaceful world.

Fantastic Home from home

  • 4 of 5

Loved the cottage with all those extra's that you always hope will be there but often aren't. So close to Bude. A real gem.

Had a very warm welcome

  • 5 of 5

A home made cream tea was waiting for us on arrival. The cottage was very clean and had everything needed to make our stay enjoyable. The views around the cottage are fantastic and the gardens are better than at home!

It set away from busy roads so nice and peaceful with plenty of parking. Will be going back 😎

An enjoyable stay in a beautiful place.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The setting was lovely and a special extra was the presence of bird-feeders that were kept topped up during our stay.

The beds were comfortable and bathroom always nice and warm. Our hosts were helpful and friendly but unobtrusive. We'd love to visit again sometime.

Lovely cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at Thistledown Cottage!! We arrived around 7pm and Debbie came to greet us, gave us a brief run down of everything, including where the local Chinese take away was as we were starving after travelling for a few hours. She'd even left us some tea, coffee, milk and some scones and jam - very nice touch!! The cottage feels very welcoming, was spotlessly clean and with everything you could need in the kitchen, it was like home away from home. The grounds are lovely too with some great views and lots of wildlife running and flying around, which I love! Debbie was always on hand for information of the surrounding area, places to eat and visit, nothing was too much trouble, very friendly!! Definitely recommend this lovely place!!

Amazing cottage set in peaceful countryside

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing retreat in a gorgeous converted barn/cottage. Stunning grounds and views over the Cornish countryside and only a hop-skip-jump to the local beaches and Bude town centre. Welcoming and kind hosts that were willing to assist whenever needed. Highly recommend this home away from home holiday cottage.
