The owners have paid attention to every detail with top end tasteful design and equal warmth and hospitality. This unique property in every way. The property gave us a hug on the way in and another on the way out. Memorable.

It is well located for the beach and for going further afield - we visited the Eden Project which was only an hour away. Close to Bude for more eating and shopping. We walked the coastal path to Crackington Haven which was spectacular if not for the faint hearted. The Summer House was cosy on the chilly evenings with very effective heating. It is well equipped for cooking at home and the cream tea welcome was a nice touch. Nicola and Bob were very welcoming and on hand for any advice or help if needed. We would recommend and return for another stay in the future.
