Four-person, dog-friendly barn conversion with hot tub, sauna and outdoor kitchen
This private barn conversion has everything you need for a truly memorable Cornish experience. Located close to Bude beaches, Wonnacott blends modern touches with quirky design. Make use of the outdoor kitchen, outdoor showers, fire-bowl, BBQ, hot tub and sauna before settling in by the delightful wood burner and Smart TV. Wonnacott is the perfect for family adventures or couple getaways – and there’s even space for your four-legged friend too.
This modern barn conversion is a renovated 17th Century farm building – but you wouldn’t think it. The interior blends modern accessories and open-plan living with thoughtful and quirky design touches. Whether you’re looking for an action-packed Cornish adventure or a couples’ getaway in the secluded countryside, Wonnacott has everything you need to create those perfect holiday memories.
A large open-plan homestay and offers an experience like no other. Arrive back from a morning of coastal adventures, hang up your wetsuits and de-sand yourself in the warm outdoor shower. Then, spend a lazy afternoon lounging in the private outdoor space, dining al fresco from the BBQ, getting toasty by the outdoor fire bowl, bubbling away your troubles in the private four-person hot tub, melting away your worries in the large private-use sauna, or playing with your pooch in the private-use lawn area.
As the day draws to a close, bask in the pinky-orange hues of glorious Cornish sunsets and watch the sun disappear into the distant Atlantic Ocean. Create those special evening meals in the large, modern kitchen before curling up on the luxurious sofas in the flickering light of the wood burner – and pop on your favourite films or series on the Smart TV. Unwind in the en-suite shower room or bathroom using deluxe Duck Island products and heated, fluffy, Egyptian-cotton towels. Then finally, retire to the contemporary downstairs bedrooms with French doors, and get lost in a sea of dreamy, luxury bedding.
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.
