Make a holiday cottage in Stratton your home away from home

Stratton is a picturesque village just to the northeast of Bude that comes with its own rich history. HomeAway holiday cottages in Stratton offer the perfect accommodation in which to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle. The properties generally sleep between two and five people and many are pet friendly, so visitors can always test the water on a romantic interlude, before bringing the whole family on the next trip.

With these charming and modern cottages more reasonably priced than places like self-styled foodie paradise Padstow, a stay in Stratton is the smart way to holiday. Take advantage of the lower rates, and save more to spend on the wide variety of activities nearby. Most Stratton holiday cottages come with TVs and DVD players, Freeview and Wi-Fi, and are fully kitted out with modern appliances. Of course, some go further and take advantage of the great climate by offering pretty gardens and even swimming pools. They are perfect for visitors looking for a comfortable, personal experience without the hassle of a hotel. Whether seeking to savour the slower pace of life in a small village, or eager to get into something exciting nearby, Stratton offers activities for every taste.

Things to do

-Swimming: The Bude Sea Pool is a delightful attraction just 2.5 miles away in the seaside town of Bude. Part natural and part man-made, it welcomes swimmers, paddlers or even scuba divers. This attraction is free and open throughout the year.

-Archery: Red Elk Archery offers something different for the whole family. Just under two miles away from holiday homes in Stratton in Bude, a good time can be had for around £20 for over three hours. Enjoy lessons and testing your skill on targets that are in the woods as well as on the range.

-Family fun: The Gnome Reserve & Wild Flower Garden is a delightful escape for adults and kids alike. There are over 1,000 gnomes and pixies along with over 250 labelled species of flora spread throughout this four-acre reserve. After a couple hours of frolicking, enjoy seeing the little people being made, and have some sandwiches and tea from the Gnome kitchen.

-Indoor activities: Harlequinn’s Leisure is billed as “Cornwall's all year, all weather, premier tourist attraction”. Ever popular with visitors in Stratton holiday cottages, this indoor fun zone is sure to be a hit with the children aged 12 and under. It boasts a six-level play zone and numerous slides and activities, ten-pin bowling and food.

-Outdoor activities: Tamar Lakes Country Park offers a wide variety of water activities like kayaking, windsurfing and fishing, as well as walks around the lake and a children’s play area.

The new bed is very comfortable. The views are stunning and better still you can see them from the sofa too. My only word of caution would be to wheelchair users! My husband is one, you do need to be able to manage some walking as the bathrooms are not easy to manage in a wheelchair, although the rest of the apartment and the building are fine and will certainly go back again. A special mention too for Sandra, the cleaner/caretaker, she is lovely, friendly, does a great meet and greet job and couldn't be more helpful.

When we arrived at the house the children were very excited to discover all the pirate toys and that they had been left a gift each. We also received a lovely welcome pack of sparkling wine and goodies.The house is lovely and has everything you could possibly need for a home away from home. The children loved the pirate themed bedroom and enjoyed spending time in the outside 'smugglers den' play house.There is a local beach which is apx 10-15 min walk through the fields, although we choose to drive to Polzeath most days (20-30 min drive). Tintagel is very close and handy for take away fish and chips! I would definitely recommend staying here, especially if you have children under 10.
