Stunning house right in the heart of Widemouth Bay, with far reaching views over the dramatic Atlantic ocean, and a short walk along the meandering, almost level, path to the wide, inviting sands. Sleeping up to 13, with four en suite bedrooms, large sitting room and separate children's den, an excellently appointed kitchen and dining room (both with sea views) with all modern facilities, Games Room, West Haven is a truly exceptional holiday house that will suit family groups and friends alike. With a lawn that would do justice to Andy Murray's forehand, the gardens are the perfect place to sit and take in the wonderful sea air if you decide that the minute walk to the beach is really just too strenuous. With great surfing, (Widemouth Bay is considered one of the top surfing beaches on the North Cornwall coast), an excellent restaurant, gastro pub (offering fish and chips takeaway), village shop with fresh fish counter all within the Bay, this is a great house for holidaying.
This house is absolutely brilliant, rooms are spacious, well decorated and furnished, comfy beds and an ideal location. I will be returning for sure!
If you are umming and arring about booking then don't it is worth every penny!
This house met all our expectations and more. It is modern, clean and offers plenty of space. The kitchen is well equipped, the house has comfortable beds, nice bathrooms etc. It is very well looked after and the games room and big garden are a bonus. Also its position just across the road from the beach and its breathtaking views really make it a perfect holiday base. Plenty to do in the area, such as body boarding (big waves!), village pubs with gardens for kids to play on swings etc, King Arthur's Castle in Tintagal, bluereef aquarium in Newquay etc.
Special mention to Nick Compton from elite west holidays who was extremely helpful and efficient.
We have just returned from our stay at West Haven, the whole family enjoyed this marvellous house which catered for everyones need even the games room was well used. The location is stunning with exceptional sea views and the hillside surrounding area. It was just perfect. Widemouth Bay was ideal for Bodyboarding and surfing and the beach was just down a pathway - we all walked for hours with our dogs. There was plenty of parking also for the families cars.
We all have loved every moment of our stay here.
I don't even know where to start singing my praises about this stunning property and also the spot on service Nick Compton provides every time we decide to rent West Haven for a weekend or whole week.
The listing description for West Haven regarding location and facilities is absolutely accurate, if not even a little toned down, as what we found the first time we walked through the door, simply made our jaws drop. The house was perfectly clean and the presentation of the living space and especially bed-rooms was filled with little details that show somebody really cares. The house is very spacious and perfect for families or friends who want to escape to the seaside for a little break.
Every wish or question we had was taken care of immediately by Nick Compton, who provides a seriously great customer service. Replies come back promptly and are always helpful, fuss-free...exactly what you need when planning a holiday.
No doubt I would recommend West Haven to my friends and family and also already did. We're going to become regulars at West Haven...for a reason.
The surrounding area provides plenty of activities for all age- and interest-groups, from mellow walks along the coast line to surfing at one of the best surf-beaches in the area...you won't get bored.
We'll definitely be back soon! NIck, thanks for making every holiday special and unforgettable :-)
This home is even nicer than depicted on-line. The location is perfect with Widemouth Bay directly in front of the house (with easy beach access) and the town of Bude just a short drive, or walk if you prefer, away. (The coastal hiking trail also passes in front of the house.) The home has everything you could possibly need for a great getaway vacation and Nick is close by to assist if needed. Our family of 6 loved the house and location and we're already looking forward to our stay there next summer.
We had a lovely week at West Haven at the beginning of September 2010. We are a family of 4 couples and 1 baby and all of us loved the house, its location and the facilities. Nick and his team were super helpful and answered any questions about activities in the local area as well as any of the other random questions we asked. The house was very clean and in great condition and big enough to accomodate 10 people allowing for everyone to have enough space. We spent a lot of time on the huge window seat in the lounge overlooking the sea and soaking up the sun as well as reading or watching one of the numerous DVDs in the evening. We spent a lot of time cooking together (lots of fresh seafood) however there are a few restaurants within walking distance (however the pavements were few and far between so dangerous walking when it is dark). We would definitely recommend this - in fact two of the party were talking about returning next year with another big group. Whilst there we visited Padstow (beautiful and bought lots of fresh fish), Eden Project (not quite up to our expectations but worth going if you use tesco vouchers it is cheaper and you beat the queue), Bude (very picturesque, big beach and pool plus great ice cream and lots of walking opportunities)...Thank you Nick and team for a great week.
Widemouth Bay is considered one of the top surfing beaches in the UK. Flat sands at low and high tide, perfect for bathing, within five minute drive of Bude town with good selection of restaurants, cafes and shops. Easy access to all areas of Cornwall and Devon.
