Stanbury Wharf has much history associated with it, as it stands alongside the now dried up Holsworthy to Bude Canal.
Previously used for the storage of sand shipped up the canal from Bude, Stanbury Wharf Barn has been imaginatively converted into two luxuriously appointed holiday cottages.

Standing in 1.5 tranquil acres of land in the heart of 'Ruby Country' & within a mile of the ancient port town of Holsworthy with shops, pubs, banks, tea rooms & a weekly live stock market, you'll find the location of Stanbury Wharf excellent.

Tamar Lakes are just 6 miles away offering tuition in sailing, windsurfing & canoeing as well as fishing, picnic area's & way marked walks.

Being near the Cornish border Padstow, Tintagel & Boscastle are all within easy reach, whilst the Eden Project is 1.1/2hrs drive. Holsworthy Golf & Country Club is nearby where they can offer discounted green fee's to their guests. Lovers of unspoilt countryside, safe Blue Flag Beaches, nature trails, cycle trails, National Trust & National Parks will enjoy this unexplored part of Devon & Cornwall.
