About the property

The Nook - a holiday cottage that sleeps 6 guests in 3 bedrooms

The Nook is situated right on the Cornish Coastal Footpath, approximately 2 miles from the historic wreckers' town of Bude on Northcott Bay, a west facing beach much loved by local surfers. The beach has large rounded stones at the top but, as the tide retreats, it reveals acres of soft sand. The property is surrounded by a wooden fence to ensure privacy, has a sundeck and barbeque and is equipped with garden furniture. What could be better than sitting on the sundeck watching a stunning sunset over the beach with a glass of wine in hand and a feast cooking on the barbeque?


Ground Floor: The entrance porch leads in one direction, via a hallway, to a double bedroom (4'6") and shower room / WC and in another direction to the cosy lounge with wood burner and clome oven set in a beautiful old stone fireplace. The lounge with leads to the slate floored, fully fitted kitchen and to a bathroom with bath and shower over and WC. Adjacent to the kitchen is the light, airy, split-level dining room / sunroom which has panoramic views over the bay and French doors to the sundeck. A short spiral staircase leads back down from the dining room / sunroom to the lounge.

First Floor: Cosy double (4'6") and twin (3') rooms with exposed beams.

Exterior: Sundeck on the west side and lawn on the west and south sides of the fully enclosed garden with garden furniture & BBQ.

We really enjoyed our stay ,we wanted somewhere to relax and we got it, we had people walking past the front of the house but that was expected, there was no were to errect the sun parasol,

We found the door handle on the double room upstairs faulty, this could be a issue if the door is closed, also the step on the corridor going to the bottom room could have a trip warning,

Overall good

Thank you

This is a cosy cottage in a wonderful position, and within walking distance of Bude, which is an unpretentious seaside resort. Kitchen well equipped.

The Nook

  • 4 of 5

I booked The Nook purely on location as we have a poorly dog who can’t go far now. What a great place. Really well equipped although bedrooms tiny! The fabulous location and the lovely ‘Margaret’ at the Rustic Tea Garden just up the lane made our week fun and relaxing. Will definitely return.

The Nook is situated on Northcott Mouth and is approximately a 5 minute drive north of Bude. Bude is Cornwall's most northern town and has been a favourite seaside resort since Victorian times. The coastal scenery surrounding the beaches of is quite beautiful, boasting some of the finest sandy beaches and the best surfing in England! The town has excellent facilities and a wide selection of interesting, independent shops. This idyllic area has a large amount of bird life for the dedicated twitcher and some wonderful, scenic walks along the South West coastal path.

The centre of Bude is a lively hub with concerts, dances and fetes as well as other events throughout the season, including an annual Carnival Week. The town has a host of pubs, cafes and restaurants to suit every palate and there is a new Visitors Centre in the Crescent car park, a large children's play area, a 19th century canal and a small wharf amongst many other attractions. Bude is also home to the internationally acclaimed jazz festival which takes place each August.

Further along the coast is Sandymouth, a large beach ideal for families due to its lovely sand, rock pools and tea rooms. A short drive north over the border into Devon leads to the quaint village of Hartland with its very own shipwreck! Also well worth a visit is the world famous fishing village of Clovelly. The cobbled, traffic-free, high street is built into a cleft in a 400' high cliff and tumbles its way down past whitewashed cottages festooned with flowers to the tiny working port.
