The West Country region
North Cornwall has something for everyone; walking, surfing, golf, horse-riding, cycling, wind-surfing, fishing, kayaking, rock-climbing and tennis. Long sandy beaches, rugged cliffs, moors, valleys and breathtaking scenery at every turn.
Many attractions await you, The Eden project, Lost gardens of Helegan, Tintagel, the Otter sanctuary, to name but a few.
Boscastle and Padstow offer fishing and sightseeing trips which show the spectacular coastline from a different angle, St Ives boasts the New Tate and Port Isaac Doc Martin's House, you can also enjoy a free live performance of the now world famous group Fishermans Friend in the open air on the Platt at Port Isaac on selected Friday evenings (a must with fish & chips and a pint of local cider)
Truro, Exeter and Plymouth are all about an hours drive away.
Widemouth Bay a long, wide sandy beach renowned for surfing has two sections, North beach, where The Beach House is situated, and Black Rock, it is home to 2 great pub/restaurants a shop, who also do fish & chips in the summer, a couple of cafes and surf hire. Surf lessons can be arranged as several surf schools operate here as do Outdoor Adventure who offer a huge range of activities for all ages.
Bude, a delightful seaside town, is about 3 miles north, a great walk along the south west coast path or 5 mins in the car; it has a selection of shops and restaurants, 2 fantastic beaches, Summerleaze and Crooklets a fresh seawater pool, canal breakwater and harbour. It hosts a local farmers market on a Friday on the wharf, carnival and Jazz festival in late summer. You can hire a boat and explore the canal and where it meets the sea have a look at the only sea water lock in the country, a local event when once a fortnight when it is manually opened by local muscle (and visitors of course)and a stroll along side the canal takes you through a wildlife sanctuary, a bird watchers delight. Bude also offers several banks, 3 supermarkets, an indoor pool with flume & fitness centre, bowling alley, golf course and very friendly locals.
Finally the best homemade Cream Tea in the world (in our opinion) is served by a delightful lady from a caravan at Northcott Mouth about a mile north of Bude, walk along the coast path across the downs or by car through Poughill (pronounced Pofill)

"If only life was this chilled out every week !"
Thank you jackie for a wonderful holiday home that helped us have the most chilled out family holiday,everything was perfect at the bungalow.we arrived late evening and you had put lights and heating on which was so welcoming ,with fresh flowers ,hot cross buns ,butter and Easter eggs. We had everything we needed at the bungalow the beds, towels everything was great. We really didn't want to leave and we are already planning to come again. Fantastic place !!!!!! The kids found it great for surfing with it being 2 min walking to the beach . They were building a slope for wheelchair access to the beach which is a great bonus as Nikki loves it on the beach so we will have to back to try it out !! The bungalow had plenty of room for Nikki in her wheelchair it was perfect . A* accommodation thank you jackie for your kindness and help great place lovely owners.

"An amazing place. Wonderful bungalow."
This was our first time we booked a holiday home and Jackie made it so easy for us. Our group had 7 people and a dog.
First impressions when we drove up to the property it was better than the photos shown.
It was my mums 65th birthday and Jackie had put up banners and balloons. Flowers, bucks fizz and a wonderful cake. It was so kind. Just a wonderful touch.
The bungalow had so much space. Each bedroom had its own bathroom. We enjoyed a Jacuzzi bath which all the colour lights. It had everything you could ever want and more. Lots of car space, wine cooler, dish washer, wet room, a wii with so many games and so many more things.
We enjoyed very good food and drink at widemouth bay hotel only a short walk up the road.
We would defiantly recommend it to all our friends and family. It was a beautiful bungalow in a stunning location. And hopefully we will return soon.
Thank you so much to Jackie for making it a wonderful weekend. Thank you
