You will not be disappointed by the cottage and its interior. The owners have got this right. The location is good for access to everywhere and only a short drive to beaches if you have children. The only negative is the outside entrance which is heavily cluttered and makes your first impression a negative one.

The cottage was in a very quiet location. We enjoyed the location and proximity to widmouth beach which we started to default to as our choice of beach as it was only a 10 minute drive.

This is an excellent base for touring the area. The accommodation is high spec and a lot has been crammed in to a small space. So it is quite cosy but functional. The hosts are great and on hand if you require anything. There is a nice decking area outside the bi-fold doors and from about 8.30pm onward a couple of barn owls start doing their thing Read morein the field next door which was nice to see. When using the hob/oven you will need to read the instructions provided first time round. Hide

We've stayed in quite a number of properties with Holidaycottages.co.uk and I think we all agreed that this one was our favourite. It's a beautiful secluded spot but only a short drive into Bude, beaches etc. The property had everything we needed. We especially loved the wildlife in the large garden, from squirrels, rabbits, birds and two barn owlsRead more which kept us entertained most evenings! Would certainly recommend this property and the friendly owners. Great place, 5 stars Hide
