Stay - Widemouth Bay, Bude
Bungalow | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 7
Location, location, location!
Our luxurious holiday home 'Stay' is situated in Madeira Drive, being a quiet, no-through road directly opposite the beach.
Ideally situated in the heart of this spectacular coastal village, Madeira Drive is the closest road to the beach (200 metres), the local stores (400 metres) and the award-winning Bay View Inn (650 metres).
Refurbished internally for 2014, Stay is a modern yet traditional Cornish bungalow of spacious proportions that accommodates up to 7 people in comfort.
The property is fitted-out to a high standard, offering open-plan living space to keep its guests united during their stay.
The bright, sunny lounge encompasses comfortable leather sofas, and entertainment is provided by way of a large flat screen TV with Freeview channels, DVD player and Wii console, supported by a good selection of movies and games.
There's a CD player with iPod dock for those wanting to bring their own music, and free unlimited high-speed wireless broadband throughout.
The modern high-gloss kitchen is well appointed with an induction hob, oven, microwave, fridge-freezer and dishwasher, together with quality Dualit toaster and kettle. The adjacent utility room features a supersize sink and spray tap for washing out your beach gear, together with a washing machine, tumble dryer and drying racks.
For those arriving with 'little ones', Stay is equipped with a travel cot and bedding, high-chair, plastic crockery and cutlery and baby monitor to save you bringing those bulky, yet essential items with you.
Stay has 3 large, luxurious bedrooms.
The South facing master bedroom is home to a comfortable Super King size bed with crisp white Egyptian cotton sheets and French doors that lead out into the patio area. It has its own luxurious en-suite bathroom with the all important high-pressure power shower.
The master bedroom is also furnished with a widescreen TV with DVD player.
Bedroom 2 has twin 3' beds and bedroom 3 contains sturdy 3' bunk-beds in addition to a separate 3' bed. Again all beds have quality crisp Egyptian cotton bedding.
Quality linen and towels (including beach towels) are all provided.
Facing directly south, Stay's large rear garden is a perfect suntrap. Its sizeable patio and an upper deck area make for some great outdoor living and a large BBQ is also provided.
Plentiful parking is available directly outside the property, although please note that whilst the property provides spacious living on one floor, it is accessed via a short flight of 6 steps and is therefore sadly not accessible to wheelchair users at this time.

The West Country region
Cornwall is located in the far south-west of England on a peninsula surrounded by the vast Atlantic ocean.
With its dramatic coastlines, promise of better weather and slower pace of life, Cornwall has always been a much-loved holiday destination for those living elsewhere in the UK.
Being almost entirely surrounded by sea its coastline spans nearly 300 miles where you'll find spectacular beaches that provide a natural playground for relaxation and a variety of water sports. The diverse and naturally stunning landscape makes for great walking trails and a host of must-visit Cornish locations.
Cornwall has become home to a multitude of award-winning local food producers, and with its traditional fishing harbours providing the freshest fish the region is now well and truly on the gourmet map.
The region has a tremendous history stemming from its Celtic roots and culture, much of which is still evident in the warmth and friendliness of the Cornish people today.
Widemouth Bay sits just south of Bude on the Atlantic coastline of North Cornwall.
Year by year its flat sandy beach is awarded the top standard for excellent water quality in the MCS Good Beach Guide, and facing directly west the sunsets over the sea each evening are nothing short of spectacular.
Offering something for everyone, Widemouth Bay is popular with surfers and families alike, and being self-sufficient with a general store, fresh fish shop, beach cafes and two great local pubs, you'll be forgiven for not picking up the car keys until it's time to leave.
A short drive north however will arrive you in nearby Bude, being a well-equipped yet traditional Cornish town with two great beaches of its own and a wide selection of shops and places to eat.
Just a mile inland from Widemouth Bay is the A39 (known as the Atlantic Highway) which runs parallel to the coastline and provides great links to the rest of Cornwall.

"Fantastic house, fantastic holiday"
Having frequently been camping in the Bude area, hiring a propery was a step up for us in luxury. Stay did not disappoint. We had a brilliant time and thoroughly enjoyed the using the excellent facilities which suited ideally our party's mixture of ages and interests.
The modern, open plan layout really works well with a excellently equipped kitchen integrated into a dining area and the living-room space. Cooking, eating and relaxing were never a chore! The bedrooms were very comfortable, adequately spacious and the toilets and bathrooms were spotless and sleek.
With the property being only 2 minutes from Widemouth beach, we did a lot of surfing and body boarding. Rinsing and drying wetsuits wwas easy with a hanging area in the utility room. It was sign of how comfortable, active and occupied we were that the TV and Wii were barely used ...
A great property in a great location.

The issue with the parking is being addressed as Stay has a facelift planned for Autumn/Winter, providing driveway parking for 2 large vehicles outside of our house.

"Home from home! Fantastic"
We had a great time at Widemouth bay, the house was amazing, we were really comfortable and the children were well catered for. The welcoming cream tea and bottle of wine went down a treat! The garden was a great bonus, we had somewhere to chill out while the children did what they wanted to do, we didn't need to be out all the time, the house was a bit of a holiday too! Emma had thought of everything! The location was great too, didn't need a car some days which is exactly what we wanted. Thoroughly recommended!
Thank you for your lovely review Victoria - it's really appreciated and you're welcome back anytime :)

"Fantastic house in a great location"
We stayed with our two boys (4 and 6) and grandparents during the last week of May 2014. The house was immaculate throughout with very high quality finishes. The open plan kitchen/dining/living area was bright and spacious and a really pleasant space in which to spend time. The kitchen was spotless and well equipped with appliances, crockery and utensils, and an adjoining utility room had a washing machine, dryer and plenty of space for hanging wetsuits and beach gear. The bedrooms and bathrooms were all nice and spacious, and again, spotless. Plenty of towels and bedding was available, along with beach towels. There is also a large outside table and benches on the rear patio, which we found to be a nice sun trap and good place to eat.
The house is a couple of minutes' walk from the beach which was one of the main attractions when we decided to book. Driving into Bude took around 5 minutes.
Overall, we were all very pleased with our holiday and would book again. The wine and cream teas waiting for us when we arrived were also a nice (and welcome!) touch.
Thank you for your lovely review Gill - I am so pleased that you all enjoyed your stay.
You are welcome back anytime :)
