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.

The rooms were a great size and the communal living space was great for a group. The view out of the bi-fold doors was stunning and sometimes included cow visits. Really appreciated the prosecco and would highly recommend staying here. Owners Gareth & Jenny were very efficient in responding to requests - thank you.
