Nestled in the rolling hills of Marhamchurch, situated on the outskirts of Bude, lies the luxury Wooldown Holiday Cottages.
Upon arriving at Wooldown we knew immediately that we were in for a treat. Wooldown Holiday Cottages are a range of 20 one bedroom luxury self-catering retreats exclusively for adults. We were invited to stay in one of their brand new apartments named Skyfall.We were greeted by the wonderful owners of Wooldown and shown around the property. It oozed beauty in every way.
Every detail was finished to the highest standard with a real contemporary and modern style, with all the mod cons you could imagine from underfloor heating to spa baths. Our apartment had a lovely fire in the lounge that took centre stage and made our evenings so cosy. We had been left an array of goodies including milk, strawberries and cream in the fridge as well as Kernow chocolate hot chocolate spoons, one of their famous chocolate bars and even some gin flavoured fudge.
Going through to the open-plan bedroom, we were met by a huge Canadian pine super king bed with a small wardrobe to the side. From there we stepped into the most anticipated part of the property……the bathroom.
This bathroom was completely divine and pure bathroom goals. It boasted a massive free-standing copper air spa tub and its very own spacious steam room including a rainfall shower. It even has multi-coloured mood lighting that can be set to suit your mood.After saying goodbye to the very lovely owners, we got ourselves all settled in and decided to jump straight into the steam room.
What a treat. It was such a lovely way to kick off the weekend and we had even been left our very own super luxurious toiletries from St Kitts Herbery too. It felt like we had arrived at a private spa day.
A quick rinse and it was time try out the air spa. There was no better way to melt away the stresses than to enjoy a glass of red wine in the tub witnessing the sun settle behind a luscious green fields and out on to the ocean.
The next day, after waking up slow and enjoying a hearty vegan breakfast, we browsed through Wooldown’s information book. We decided to follow one of the suggested routes and go for a stroll into Bude along the canal.It was a lovely warm, sunny day and was only a 45 minute leisurely walk into the Bude itself.
There is so much to see along the canal. From tons of wildlife and friendly ducks to the properties that sit on the waters edge, which, were so intriguing from cute little cottages to full grand design type homes.Stu even ended up having to rescue one little duckling that had be parted from its family.All the walking really built up our appetite. So, we decided to head for a bite to eat at The Olive Tree along the harbour front. They had a broad range of tasty food with a great vegan menu, definitely one to try out if your in the area.
Making our way back, unfortunately we got caught out in an almighty downpour and ended up completely drenched through. However, this was a perfect excuse to warm up in the steam room and air spa tub before retiring the sofa in front of the fire. That evening was spent cuddled up on the sofa and enjoying the smart TV features that included Netflix.
After another perfect nights sleep, we were so sad to leave Wooldown. It truly was the perfect place to switch off and unwind. It was pure bliss and we felt so rejuvenated afterwards. The staff went above and beyond to make our stay as memorable as possible and even gifted us a goodie bag for our journey home, consisting of snacks and drinks with a copy of Cornwall living magazine.
*We were Kindly gifted a 2 night stay at Wooldown for the purpose of a review, all thoughts are our own.
Thank you so much to everyone at Wooldown for making our experience so lovely.
