Tanglin is a light and airy detached non-estate bungalow, perfect for relaxed holidays or as a base for more strenuous activities such as surfing , walking or cycling. It offers the convenience of nearby beach and facilities whilst giving the chance of peaceful evenings.

It has a conventional layout with the benefit of a large hallway separating the lounge / diner and separate kitchen at the front of the house from the bedrooms at the back of the house. This layout is perfect for families with younger children as parents won't have to tiptoe around the house once the children are in bed.

The large garden on three sides of the house gives children plenty of space to run around and offers more privacy than the beach as well as being more sheltered and gives the chance to get out of the sun should you wish. The bungalow sits on a plot of approximately 1/4 acre in size and is set back from the road by about 50'

Widemouth Sands (The North Beach at Widemouth Bay) is recommended in the MCS Good Beach Guide and has something for everyone. There is a large sandy area with rocky reefs either side with fascinating rock formations, perfect for rock pooling. The beach has a "no-dog" by-law during the summer months which has obvious advantages for cleanliness and family enjoyment. Both ends of the beach are patrolled by RNLI lifeguards between 10am and 6pm in the summer season and during school holidays.

The convenience of the short level walk to and from the beach is appreciated by everyone who stays at Tanglin. It's so easy to pop back to the house for whatever reason or you can wander back along to the beach in the evening to see if the surf is worth another go. It is just the right distance away from the beach and coast road to still be close to the sea and yet far enough away from other holiday makers and the traffic on the coastal road.

Our strict 'no smoking' and 'no pets' policy mean that you can be assured that you will find no trace of other people's pets. Unless you want to take your pet on holiday with you, why would you want to stay somewhere that could have pets in it every other week of the year?

Coastal paths provide pleasant walks in both directions. There is also a choice of paths inland through woodland towards the restored Bude canal if you tire of the beach.

A local shop just 400m away combined with an award winning free-house pub just 600m away mean that you might not even use the car until it's time to leave!

"Tanglin" is our family holiday home and we enjoy our own holidays there. We do not use an agent and are delighted when our visitors make repeat bookings.

The Cornwall region

The North Coast of Cornwall is renowned for great surfing, walking and coastal scenery.

Widemouth Bay

Widemouth Bay (pronounced Wid-muth) has 2 excellent beaches (joined at mid-low tide), 2 surf hire shops, Licensed restaurant, 2 pubs (the closest of which to Tanglin is the award winning one) , Cafe, up-market tea-room, etc.

Widemouth is renowned for excellent surfing with at least 2 surf schools operating here. Its 'recommended' status in The Good Beach Guide as well as its shear size mean that people often give the Bude beaches a miss to come to Widemouth Bay.

Bude is approximately 3 miles away by car or coastal path and has many holiday amenities, which include:

* Golf course

* Squash courts

* All weather tennis courts

* Bowling green

* 10 Pin Bowling

* Children's Play Barn

* Crazy Golf

* Putting Green

* Table Tennis

* Bike Hire

* Rowing boat hire on the Bude canal

* Out of town Splash Pool with wave machine and water slide

* Choice of supermarkets, plus many pubs, restaurants, cafes and shops

There is a choice of inland paths leading to the restored Bude Canal some of which run through 'community woodland'. Rowing boat (or pedalo) hire is available on the canal for £9 per hour from the wharf in Bude by the sea lock.
