THE OLD MANSE - STUNNING HOUSE WITH PRIVATE BEACH HUT AT BUDE SEA POOL

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Bude - The Old Manse

A five bedroomed house for 9 offering unrivalled views over golf course

Step through the front door of The Old Manse and immediately be charmed by the warmth and welcome generated by this fabulous house. Adjacent to Flexbury Church and directly opposite the Bude & North Cornwall golf course, the house oozes charm and tranquillity along with truly exquisite décor. With many original features, including the stunning Victorian tiled entrance hall and original cast iron fireplaces with original tiles, this house simply demands that you relax and embrace its warmth and sophistication.

With four bedrooms offering exceptional comfort for eight guests and a single room with full size bed, the bedrooms are beautifully furnished and homely. The house has three super-kings (which are suitable for changing into singles if required) with a further double room so there is versatility for whichever sleeping arrangements suits guests. The drawing room has comfy seating and offers and open fireplace for those chilly winter evenings and has Sky, Blu-Ray player and large flat screen television and views over the golf course. A fully equipped kitchen leads to the dining room with woodburning stove and has a warm and welcoming ambiance – sit around the dining table and sample some of the fabulous local produce that the West Country provides. There is also a separate children’s room with DVD player and PlayStation – let the children entertain themselves whilst you sit and relax in the sumptuous elegance of the cosy drawing room.

A courtyard dining area, with lighting, creates a wonderful Mediterranean feel and there is a small grassed garden for simply sitting and relaxing. A short stroll to the beach or into town, where there is a good selection of restaurants and shops, puts The Old Manse in a superb position be it for a beach holiday, golf or sightseeing.

A beautiful home, lovingly refurbished and furnished by the owners, offers a perfect house for enjoying a peaceful and relaxing holiday; you will be enchanted.

The house comes with the private use of a beach hut at the Bude Sea Pool.

The Sea Pool at Bude was created in the 1930s to provide a haven for safe swimming for the people of the town and the thousands of people who visit it each year.

The pool nestles under the cliffs on the north Cornwall coast and is topped up twice a day by the waves of the Atlantic. On a summer’s day the sprawling, sparkling expanse of the Sea Pool offers a blissful opportunity to escape from modern life and to laze, splash or bathe in calm sea water. It is a rare kind of construction: partially man-made and in harmony with the natural environment. Bude Sea Pool provides a precious opportunity to enjoy a unique experience, close to the ferocity of the natural environment but sheltered from its extreme effects.

The pool is perfect for youngsters to swim and play in at all times and the beach hut offers fabulous views over the pool and the Atlantic beyond.

Fabulous family holiday

The Old Manse provided the perfect base for our family holiday. The house is beautifully furnished and decorated and the beach hut delighted everyone in our party!
Nick at Elite West was very helpful when booking our holiday and provided great recommendations for places to eat and things to do...we'll be back!

A delightful comfortable house.

  • 5 out of 5
The Old Manse is a well presented stunning house set in the quiet area of Bude. It is close to all the amenities and the two beaches. The house had everything you could wish for to make your holiday perfect and the beach hut was just fantastic. When we arrived the house had been cleaned to a very high standard and the beds were so comfortable. Nick was very helpful too. The courtyard and little garden was an added bonus somewhere to enjoy alfresco dining and quiet reading time. I would highly recommend the,property to friends and family. Thanks again !

A fantastic comfortable well equipped house.

  • 5 out of 5
What a delightful house the Old Manse is. It has everything you could ask for and more. The courtyard was a super place for quiet breakfasts and a place to relax. The kitchen is equipped to an high standard and made cooking a pleasure. The bedrooms are decorated beautifully and the beds are extremely comfortable. Having wi fi and sky tv was a bonus especially for the younger members of our family. Nick was on hand at all times. The property was spotless and well maintained. I have already recommended the Old Manse to friends and family. Bude is a perfect place for every age range and having the beach hut was fantastic.

A fabulous break in the Old Manse

  • 5 out of 5
What a superb break in Bude - we have used Elite West so many times now, surely we deserve a loyalty card! The reason we come back time and time again is because the service offered by Nick & the quaity of the properties is second to none, making for a very enjoyable holiday. The Old Manse was delightful, full of character and cosy with the fire lit & a roast in the oven. Thanks again Nick, we shall be back. Best wishes James & Esther

A House Full of Charm and Character

  • 5 out of 5
The Old Manse is the most beautiful and charming house full of all life's modern necessities but having lost none of it's warmth and charm of it's bygone era. We found the house to be welcoming and lovingly decorated. The downstairs offered all we needed comfort, warmth from the lovely open fire on a chilly April night and the kitchen was well equipped with an abundance of cutlery and plates, etc. Upstairs the bedrooms were decorated to an incredibly high standard and the beds were incredibly comfy for a great nights sleep. The property was lovely and clean and well maintained and in a perfect location for any easy walk on to the coastal path, the beach or in to town. The beach hut was also great as the weather though kind to us with the sunshine was still a bit cold in the wind but with the beach hut we were able to shelter from the wind and eat our ice creams looking out across the sea pool and the coast. We would highly recommend this charming property and the services of Elite West Holidays to anyone looking for a break away where everything is on your doorstep.

The Old Manse - Luxury and Comfort

  • 5 out of 5
As soon as we walked into the Old Manse we felt at home, it oozes comfort and luxury from the deep leather sofas to the fabulously wide comfy beds. Even the linens are special, the sheets are quality cotton and the bath towels were large enough to wrap around my generous figure! We love to cook and the kitchen did not disappoint, the stove would please any chef and the kitchen was well equipped. All you need to make a simple sandwich for lunch or a three course evening meal for 9 and on the nights when we did not cook there were plenty of local restaurants or takeaways to cater for us. Less than 10 mins walk is a Sainsburys with everything you need if you prefer self-catering. For the techies among you there is Wi Fi to keep you in the loop and a full Sky package with 2 widescreen HD TVs, of which one is in a separate lounge with a play station ideal for the gaming fan or for children to watch TV. The location of the house was great; it’s just a very short walk to Summerleaze beach and into Bude itself. The hut next to the sea pool is a real bonus. It's not clear from the description but there is a secure garage at the rear for storing surf boards etc. and still large enough to park the family car. Also, at the time we went there was plenty of parking on the road outside. The thing that struck me most about the Old Manse was the "home from home" feel, the owners have decorated and furnished like a real home not just a holiday rent. It’s a holiday home that you can really appreciate and the only down side is that you don't want to leave.

Bude has everything! As well as the N.T Coastline, its rolling countryside is an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Bude has become a centre for all things active, be it a 140 ft abseil down the magnificent cliffs, surfing the Atlantic breakers, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, mountain boarding or sailing.

Alternatively, laze the day away on miles of life guarded sandy beaches or bathing in Bude’s famous sea pool. Followed by a cream tea! All this and a host of wet weather attractions are within walking distance or a short drive from the house.

Meander from the sea lock along the canal’s flat tow paths, flanked by nature reserves-ideal for bird watchers, walkers, wheelchairs, buggies and bikes.

For History lovers, visit Bude Castle Heritage Centre, Stratton Battle ground, picturesque Clovelly harbour, or king Arthurs Tintagel, both within ½ an hour.

Plymouth National sea life centre, the Eden project, lost gardens of Heligan, Port Isaac, Padstow and more are all within a day trip.
