Luxury moonshine shack for two with private porch and outdoor hot tub
A brand-new luxury cabin for two, step back to the days of pioneers and prohibition when at Still House. Located just two miles inland, just outside the village of Marhamchurch, close to the coastal town of Bude, this private sanctuary blends cosy indulgence with curiosities and furnishings straight from the frontier.
Perfect for couples and honeymooners, Still House has all you need for a memorable stay – including an outdoor hot tub on your own private porch, a magnificent open-fire, and a complimentary homemade hamper on arrival.
Hide away like outlaws in this self-contained bunkhouse and feel immediately restful in the charmingly rustic and atmospheric interior. This bolthole was purpose-built by the owners and is a faithful recreation of a shack from the Old West – with a Cornish twist, of course. Everywhere you look, there are quirky curiosities and carefully curated trinkets: from ethically sourced taxidermy to one-off art pieces. There is a Smart TV and WiFi so, if you want to, you can keep up with what’s going on in the real world while you’re hiding out like Bonnie and Clyde in your secluded getaway.
This unique homestay is a little slice of heaven that offers an experience like no other. Spend lazy afternoons lounging in rocking chairs on the private porch (spittoon included), or melting away your woes in the outdoor hot tub. As the day draws to a close, bask in the pinky-orange hues of glorious Cornish sunsets in your private orchard before curling up on the luxurious leather sofa in the flickering light of the imposing fireplace. Unwind in the large power-shower or roll-top bath, with fluffy cotton towels and luxury Duck Island toiletries. Then finally, retire to the quaint and cosy bedroom, equipped with ceiling fan and French doors that open onto the porch.
Still House sits just outside of the village of Marhamchurch which has a local shop and pub, the Bullers Arms.
Bude is two miles away, and sits on the North Cornwall and Devon border and offers a traditional beachside holiday for couples and families alike.
There are two sandy beaches located in the town itself, Summerleaze Beach and Crooklets Beach. Both have beach huts available for hire and overlooking Summerleaze Beach is the Bude Sea Pool, which is a free tidal swimming pool that is run and maintained by a team of volunteers (so donations are welcomed). Other beaches only a couple of miles away are Widemouth Bay, Northcott Mouth and Sandymouth Beach, all of which showcase dramatic scenery.
There are a variety of cafes and bars if you are looking to eat out, from The Barge (a floating cafe on Bude’s canal) to The Beach that serves fine dining and cocktails with fantastic views out to sea. A couple of miles outside of Bude at Northcott Mouth, The Rustic Tea Garden serves cream teas with generous amount of proper Cornish clotted cream.
If you are seeking an active holiday, then Bude has a number of surf, paddleboard and adventure activity schools to help you have fun, whilst staying safe. Bude’s beaches are favoured with surfers, kite surfers and paddle boarders. There are surf hire huts too, for those who are just ‘trying it out’.
The Bude canal has fun for all the family with pedal boats and rowing boats for hire, followed by a spot of shopping on the canal side at The Wharf, where you will find many local artisan items for sale. Throughout summer, there is also the Bude Farmers Market held each Friday and you can also find a proper Cornish ice-cream here to cool down with.
Widemouth Bay sits just a couple of miles south of Bude and while it benefits from all the Bude has to offer, is a slightly quieter setting. It is a beachside village dotted with cafes and bars, plus everything you need for a great day at the beach. Surf hire and surf schools are available and there is a very chilled out feeling to this area.
Bude and Widemouth Bay are close to the A39, which makes it easy to explore the North Cornwall and Devon coastline. Only a short drive away are the historic villages of Tintagel and Boscastle, steeped in legends and folklore. Padstow is also only an hours drive from Bude, and is favoured among foodies with many talented chefs serving up fresh local food.
