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.

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
Owner's Response: James and Esther have become very regular clients and it is always a delight to have them stay with us - their reviews are rather nice too!

A House Full of Charm and Character

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 20-Apr-2013
  • Date of Stay: Mar 2013
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.
Owner's Response: We are really delighted Jo and her family had a really good holiday with us and look forward to welcoming them back again soon.

The Old Manse - Luxury and Comfort

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 10-Mar-2013
  • Date of Stay: Mar 2013
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.
Owner's Response: Thank you, Travellers, for writing such a glowing review and we are delighted you enjoyed The Manse. It was really good having you stay with us and you are welcome to holiday with us again at any time - thank you for leaving the house so clean and tidy and being really lovely guests!

As good as it gets

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 16-Apr-2012
  • Date of Stay: Apr 2012
We are big fans of Cornwall and that makes expectations high! The Old Manse in Bude is simply superb and well worth basing your stay at.

Our whole experience could not be faulted: from ease of booking, first impressions, superb fixtures and fittings (including an excellent gas hob and dual electric oven - brought tears to a foodies eyes!), super fast internet, cosy quiet rooms. Basically all the bits you wish for there to make your holiday gel together.

It is located within 500m of the beach. I enjoy my running and the cliff paths are simply heaven on earth.

I won't spoil it for you, but be totally assured if you have the extreme demands of 4 children between 6 months and twenty, you could not choose better.

Will we go back yes. Keep it as a closely guarded secret... mmm thought long and hard about it! Recommend it to friends yes.

Thank you!

The Old Manse is an oasis of relaxation

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 06-Mar-2012
  • Date of Stay: Nov 2011
How lovely to arrive at this beautiful house after a long journey and feel immediately 'at home'. Perfectly located close to the town and beach The Old Manse provides an oasis of peace. Spacious bedrooms with luxurious beds made up with soft linen. The sun filled lounge is a relaxing spot to read the paper or watch a movie. The beautifully restored original features give a sense of timeless elegance.
The dining room with its cosy woodburner is the perfect spot for dinner whether cooked in the rangecooker or ordered from the chinese takeaway! Even in November the sun was warm and we enjoyed breakfast in the private courtyard. The games room with its full size telly gave viewing options to suit the whole family. The facilities are well thought out and beautifully presented. There is so much within walking distance. We lunched at Life's a Beach on Summerleaze and watched seven horses frolicking in the surf, an amazing location. Gorgeous coastal walks with breathtaking scenery, lovely to stop off at Rosies Cafe for a hot chocolate on the way back. Bude offers everything; relaxation, unique shops, golf, surfing and stunning countryside. I will recommend The Old Manse to all my friends and will be returning as soon as possible!

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.
