Character coastal cottage for two
Escape the every day; treat yourselves to a de-stress in this special cottage which sleeps two. Steeped in history, this wonderful family accommodation is idyllically set on a tranquil National Trust farm on the clifftops above Strangles Beach.
Blessed with far-reaching views, this cottage is very remote and private, a haven of calm, not overlooked and only a 20-minute walk to the village of Crackington Haven with its surfing and sunbathing beach, and a 5-minute walk to the coastal path.
Perfect for couples, this incredible space is beautifully chilled. Here, unique, characterful, traditional features combine with all the modern comforts you may need. A well equipped kitchen were you can prepare magical meals, perhaps made with ingredients carefully chosen from the local farm shops.
Old oak-beamed ceilings and flagstone delabole slate floors reflect the cottage’s history, creating a real home-from-home feel. Two living areas provide you with plenty of space, all warmed through by the wood burner in the inglenook fireplace. Quality, tasteful décor with pops of colour, accentuates the property.
The spiral slate stairs lead up to the bedroom with its super comfy bed and ensuite walk in shower room.
Outside is a courtyard area with outdoor seating, a perfect place to unwind, with breathtaking views to make your holiday complete. Take a deep breath … and relax …
Bude 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.
