When we arrived we were not disappointed, the decor and the views were absolutely beautiful and we were welcomed by a friendly face who was more then happy to help with any questions we had. My only regret is that we did not stay in the other cottage which is owned my Richard and his family, which is a 1 minute walk from where we stayed. I have told friends and family about this beautiful Mill house and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a quiet weekend away in a beautiful place.

                                                                                                    4 of 5
                                                                                                    All in all, we had an extremely pleasant stay at Bay Cottage, which provides a brilliant base to explore Bude itself and Cornwall and Devon for those with a car. The cottage is comfortable and well appointed, with a decent-sized bedroom, kitchen and bathroom, and a spacious living/dining room. Most essentials are provided. The only slight blemishes were the following: - The approach to the cottage is dark and muddy. Although a torch is provided, for optimum security a light outside that automatically switches on as you approach would be welcome. - An extra towel to serve as a hand towel in the bathroom would have been appreciated (four were provided, but we are in the custom of using two when showering - one for the body, the other for the hair - and so had none left over). We ended up buying one from a supermarket, where we also had to buy toilet paper as only one roll was provided for a 10-day stay. - Although it is set off from the road and there is minimal noise, we were occasionally disturbed by noises next door (from the main part of Ebbingford Manor, including footsteps above the bedroom) or by people walking by our window late at night. - There is a bit of an issue with spiders - we got rid of many and cleared away numerous webs. - Lastly, it would have been nice to have more personal contact with the owners. We'd read about how friendly Gina and Jonathan are, but besides exchanging a couple of practical messages about an electrician potentially coming on our last day, we did not hear from them. We would've liked them to knock on the door, greet us and check everything was OK, etc., although we're aware that some people might find this intrusive. None of these detracted substantially from what was a highly positive experience overall.
