A fabulous house for 8 almost on the beach at Widemouth Bay

Arrive at By The Beach and you are where it is - by the beach! Take in the fresh sea air, the phenomenal views of the Atlantic and instantly realise your choice of holiday home was totally right. A fabulous property in the luxury development of eight superior houses situated yards from the beach at Widemouth Bay, By The Beach provides the perfect setting for a wonderful holiday. The accommodation is exquisite; four bedrooms with four bathrooms, a spacious living area with contemporary styled kitchen, dining and living room area the property is simply superb with amazing attention to detail – the owners have thought of everything.

When we say a minute’s walk to the beach that is genuinely what we mean. The house also has a good sized garden where you can sit and dine or just sit and enjoy the calming influence of the sea. If you want views over the Atlantic, check out the waves to see what the surf is doing and then decide on whether a surf, swim or simply a stroll along the beach is in order then a quick look out from the patio doors in the upstairs living area will tell you all you need to know and what the sea is doing.

The house offers two double bedrooms, both en-suite with a further en-suite twin room and a bunk bed room. The open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room offers fabulous views over the Atlantic and Widemouth Bay itself is ideally situated with some good restaurants, a fabulous daily fresh fish counter at the local “corner shop” and is within a five minute drive along the coastal road to Bude.

A fabulous property in an idyllic setting – By The Beach will prove to be an incredibly popular house for families and friends who like to holiday together.

Good sized garden with BBQ and patio furniture, lockable storage for surfboards and other outdoor equipment.

Great holiday in a superb location.

  • 4 of 5

We had a fabulous week in this house! A proper beach holiday - thanks, of course, to near wall-to-wall sunshine, and the proximity of the beach.

The house wasn't quite as expected, but this was an advantage to us as it happened. There are 3 bedrooms on the ground floor, not just the one bunk bedded room as I had understood - or rather misunderstood - from the details, and a twin room upstairs. This means you can take advantage of the views (and the sunsets!) from the living area on the first floor. The garden is fully enclosed, and therefore very safe for small children. In this respect the house is probably in the best position on the complex - tucked away, and relatively private.

We had a few little niggles - the shower didn't drain in the master bedroom, the curtain pole was parting company with the wall in another, and there were lots of dog hairs on the rug in the sitting area, despite it being immaculately clean everywhere else. These issues didn't spoil our holiday, and Nick offered to sort them all out immediately, which we declined. I'm sure they will have been addressed before the next guests arrived.

There were one or two signs of 'tiredness' in the property eg rusty towel rails, which, considering the cost of the house rental, would be relatively cheap to replace.

Overall, the property was very good all round - attractively furnished and very comfortable (especially the beds!). I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone, and would definitely stay there again.

A wounderful place to stay. When they stay practically on the beach “it is”. We had a fabulous break staying here and hope to come back next year.

Lovely property facing the beach

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay and nothing was too much trouble for Nick to arrange prior to our arrival. The house was stunning and big enough for two families and was perfectly situated on the beach and near bars, cafes and restaurants. We will definitely stay again.

Fantastic modern holiday house right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Arriving at on the beach we were really impressed by the size, location and style of the property. Lovely touch of local teas and biscuits greeted us and the house was immaculate. We had a fantastic week at Widemouth. It was lovely to enjoy the views over the bay from the house and so handy to pop down to beach for a walk or surf. Ate out at Bay View Inn, Elements and the Beach House and highly recommend them all. Will definitely be back! Thank you for a fab stay.

Peaceful, relaxing in a little luxury, pure bliss

  • 5 of 5

I write to express our sadness that we are leaving this morning.

Overall our stay as been one of joy, relaxation and a chance to recharge our batteries which is just 'what the doctor ordered'. We cannot praise the properties on this small complex highly enough. The location, the high overall standard of each property and cleanliness. We simply couldn't ask for more!

To hear the sea each day and watch the sunsets each evening is just bliss. Yes.....we were blessed with good weather, but the property was such that it would have been a pleasure to stay in during wet colder days.

The booking process is so simple, whilst we have not had to call upon you, we are sure that our needs would have been catered for There seems to have been so much attention to detail and thought in making our stay memorable.

Though we shouldn't wish our time away, over the next few days we will be organising our time off for next year so we can re-book. We usually never return to the same place, but simply cannot wait to return.

Many Thanks Nigel & Karen Be in touch soon :-)

Fantastic location & beautifully immaculate

  • 5 of 5

You can stand and watch the ocean from the lounge windows and it's a simple stroll to the beach (if you can make it past the Black Rock Cafe without stopping for a coffee...). Inside, the house is perfectly immaculate with top notch fixtures & fittings. Everything has been thought of and the place is beautifully-run with such care and attention to detail. My whole family is booked to come and stay again this year.
