In a peaceful, secluded and rural location but still close to the sandy beaches of Bude and the rugged Cornish coastline lies Dux Farm.

Surrounding the property is 18 acres of pastureland and seven acres of woodland, a part of which has been opened up for woodland walks giving our guests the opportunity to savour the peace and quiet.

Dux Farm lies only 6 miles from the coastal town of Bude with its many surrounding sandy beaches and spectacular coastal walks. An excellent base from which to explore the Atlantic coastline. The popular sport of surfing is very well catered for in Bude.

We are also ideally placed to take advantage of the local golfing facilities. Holsworthy's 18 hole parkland golf course lies some two miles from the property and the 18 hole links course is to be found in nearby Bude.

A village pub/restaurant can be found nearby in both Bridgerule and Pyworthy. There is also a local village shop and post office in Bridgerule. Supermarket facilities are located within the nearby towns of Holsworthy (Waitrose) and Bude (Morrisons and Sainsburys). Farmer's markets selling quality local produce are in operation on Wednesdays in Holsworthy and Fridays in Bude.

*Beaches

Bude and Widemouth Bay are both within a few miles and offer fantastic beaches, and access to the coastal footpath. Both are popular with families and surfers alike and provide excellent facilities (including tuition, hiring of equipment and wetsuits). Other beaches within easy reach are Crackington Haven, Trabarwith, Polzeath, and of course Newquay.

*The Moors

About 15 miles to the south lies Rough Tor, one of the highest points on Bodmin Moor. Steeped in legend and full of archaeological heritage, the moor delivers rugged beauty and breath-taking walks. Daphne Du Maurier's Jamaica Inn is less than 20 miles away. Exmoor lies 45 minutes to the north. Dartmoor is less than 30 minutes away to the south east.

*Towns and Villages

Among the many other villages and towns worth a mention are, Tintagel with it's castle and legends of King Arthur, picturesque village of Clovelly with is carless narrow streets and the idyllic fishing village of Port Isaac where the popular Doc Martin television series was filmed and Padstow where Rick Stein has his famous restaurtant, all within about 30 minutes drive.

Summary

These are just some of the places in the area to visit. There are many, many others. Whatever you enjoy doing while you are here you can be assured of a warm welcome upon arrival and a beautiful home to return to at the end of each day.

NB. As there is a pond on site that is unfenced, children should be supervised at all times.
