The West Country region
People often describe North Cornwall as a hidden gem and this is certainly true of the Bude area. Rural retreat meets surfing chic could be one way to describe what this region offers. Picturesque villages, historic harbours, lakes and woodlands, long rural views towards Dartmoor and Bodmin, and enough stunning beaches to suit everybody. Top this with the sunny micro climate of Bude, it's trendy surf shops, bars and restaurants and you have all the ingredients for a perfect holiday location.
The ancient village of Week St Mary has a thriving village shop, a public house bar and not to be missed, the weekly fish and chip van! There is also a playing field, tennis court and children's playground. The village has a renowned scarecrow festival in August and September is Revel month to celebrate the harvest.
Nearby Bude offers good shopping, the 'Splash' swimming pool with a flume and health suite, and a leisure complex for bowling and indoor play. Try boating or fishing on Bude canal or the nearby lakes at Tamar.
Golf courses can be found at Bude and Holsworthy to name a few.
Widemouth and Bude bay offer great surfing with lessons available at various centres that excell in outdoor pursuits.
Well worth visiting are the historic harbours of Boscastle, Clovelly and Port Issac all within a short drive. Many excellent fish restaurants can be found along with the famous Rick Steins at Padstow, only a 40 minute journey.

On arrival we were met by Gaynor Cox, the owner, who was friendly and helpful. She showed us the facilities and we were pleased to see they were clean and adequate.In general, we were quite happy with… More

"Excellent would recommend"
We stayed in Coach cottage which worked out great for our family of 6. Everything we could have needed was provided and Simon and Gaynor made us more than welcome, would defiantly recommend. Bude was also great for body boarding and the outdoor sea pool.

"Absolutely beautiful cottages, surroundings and location."
I booked this cottage primarily because my daughter loves Cornwall and especially bude. When we arrived for our holiday, my daughter, 3 year old grandson and myself were made very welcome by Gaynor and family, we had arrived a bit too early, but that was no problem as the cottage was already for us to stay, which was lovely as we had more time on the Saturday to pop into bude and spend some time on the beach. I would definately like to go back for another holiday and have recommended to friends and work colleagues. We had fantastic weather to top it off. The walled garden is very lovely and also surprisingly large and enclosed. The. Games room was well used by little one. Gaynor was always available and I enjoyed her chats and useful information.

"Lovely Peaceful Cottage"
This cottage was lovely, so peaceful and clean. It was unusual in that it was upside down. Because the living area was upstairs you got the lovely views across the countryside. The walled garden was amazing and again because this cottage is in a quite village so peaceful just to sit and relax. The owners are so easy to contact and communicate with which made booking and arrival so good.
So if it's peace and quite you are looking for I recommend this cottage, just watch those narrow cornish roads!
Thank you, we are delighted you enjoyed your stay.

"Excellent and well equipped cottages ideal for group or family accomadation"
Fantastic location, very peaceful with excellent views. Our stay was only for a week and sadly it went very quickly. The country roads are very tricky but if you take your time its fine,( plenty of farm vehicles use the roads)
I did play Launceston Golf course with my son 3 times during our stay and i didnt take any clubs, but the pro was very helpful he sorted the clubs and only Charged £5 to hire them.
The rates £20 Morning and £10 after 3pm.
Both Cottages are very comfortable and very clean and tidy.

"Very comfortable and a lovely place to stay"
The cottage had everything my friend and I had hoped for, it was very quiet on the outskirts of a lovely village in a beutiful part of Cornwall. The location was central to many wonderful other locations around Cornwall and North Devon.

Owners very welcoming. The cottage was clean & comfortable but very dated, & in need of modernization. WiFi connection is very poor upstairs & non available downstairs in the bedrooms. The bathroom is extremely small & desperate for a revamp (but the shower was excellent). Outside space is good with a large secure walled garden to let the dogs & children run round in. Didn't use the games room as when I went to look in, it was cold, damp & smelt fusty.
We were unaware that these guests were in any way disappointed with their accommodation as we were under the impression that they had enjoyed their holiday. We do try to offer the highest standard of accommodation with-in the price charged which we keep at a competitive rate, particularly at this time of year in September.
We do not feel that our cottages are ”very dated” as mentioned, particularly as Coach Cottage was decorated through out at the beginning of the 2012 season. Both cottages have whitewashed walls, plain carpets, pine furniture and neutral soft furnishings. Our aim is to create a relaxed and comfortable environment suited to our rural location.
We offer a limited WIFI service in Coach Cottage, and we ask guests to enquire before booking so that we can clarify this point. The signal is picked up from our own house and for this reason we do not make any charge for this service.
The bathroom is small, however we would dispute that it requires updating. A plain white shower suite was installed 3 years ago along with stone coloured wall and floor tiles.
The games room is situated in a barn next to the cottages. There is no heating facility in this barn but we do keep it clean and tidy and believe that it is a suitable venue to play table tennis and pool. The games room is included in the cottage rental price and no extra charge is made.
We strive to make continued improvements to our cottages and we look forward to welcoming guests old and new to this beautiful part of North Cornwall in 2013.

"Excellent cottage, central location to beachs and cycle tracks"
Quiet friendly village, walking distance to local shop and playgroup for children. Games room at cottage was well enjoyed and the gardens. Good location for touring Cornwall and Devon, did day trips to Eden project and Land's End to name a few. Good access to surfing beaches and family friendly beaches. Cottage is located on National Cycle route 3 for the experienced cyclist. Traffic free cycle tracks nearby for the whole family - we completed all 'The Camel Trail' with the 3 eldest children. Cottage well equipped with games and puzzles as well.

"Excellent accommodation and owners"
We stayed for a week in Stable Cottage and were delighted with our cottage.It encapsulated rural living with comfort;with the open aspect both at the front of the cottage outside and the upstairs open sitting, dining room and kitchen with open rafters and far reaching views. The beds were all comfortable and the bedding we had was quality.The pine furniture was attractive throughout the cottage.The kitchen was well equipped and well organised. The power shower was even better than our power shower at home and had plenty of hot water and the option to provide even more if needed. The weather was mixed and the heating was very efficient - again we were able to control when it came on and the thermostat. In a separate building were a table tennis table and pool table which were well used and enjoyed. At the back was the walled garden which was bigger than I anticipated from the photo and we could let the dog out securely without the need to watch her all the time and there was ample dining furniture front and back on which we enjoyed barbecues.Gaynor and Simon could not have been more friendly or helpful or done any more to enable us to relax and enjoy our stay. The village shop provided locally baked bread and cornish pasties a very short walk away which added to our holiday.

"ideal lodgings with the all the required facilities - friendly owners"
The location has some fantastic views, all the elements we needed were supplied and we had felt that we were greeted with courtesy and a feeling of ease for making us relaxed and comfortable for our stay. It was convenient for the beaches and walks. Local shops were easy to find and had what we needed.
We would have no hesitation in recommending anyone to stay in this lovely idealic spot. We will come back Simon and Gaynor, and thank you for your hospitallity. You have a wonderful pace. We feel very more rested now.
