About the property

A beautiful, relaxing and peaceful getaway

**Now taking bookings for 2019**

Little Willows sits nestled in the vast 13 acres of countryside in Widemouth Bay Holiday Village, overlooking the award winning and Blue Flag rated surfing beach of Widemouth Bay. One of Cornwall's outstanding beaches with its vast expanse of sand, safe bathing and wonderful surfing.

The site is peaceful and quiet with the bungalows set amongst well kept lawns and trees. Situated on a small family run site, the bungalow has its own private sea-view patio area with garden furniture and a large shared lawned area in front with further seating. Inside is a home from home feel, with high spec kitchen, and a spacious open plan living and dining area. Bedrooms offer comfortable beds and generous storage space. Electricity is powered by a meter which accepts £1 coins, and is priced at normal electricity rates.

During the main holiday season (Apr 1st - Sept 30st) on-site facilities include indoor swimming pool, bar with pool tables, Sky sports TV, games room and light family entertainment (main school holidays only) in the concert room. Tennis court and children's play area, dog walk and car park are open all year round.

The unspoilt traditional seaside town of Bude is just a short 7 min drive away with its lovely beaches, shops, walks etc - there is something for everyone.

A Little About The Area

Widemouth Bay is a very long open bay with a varied and interesting beach. At the more northerly end of Widemouth there is a large sandy area that becomes more exposed has the tide drops, and to either side of this area the sand gives way to some amazing rock formations. The beach is ideal for families and offers a variety of seaside activities. Whether you wish to swim, sunbathe, surf, hunt for marine life in the hundreds of rock pools or just comb the beach for that personal memento, Widemouth offers all this and more. The sun is on the beach almost all of the day with the exception of very early in the morning and the sunsets here are fabulous.

Bude is located on the north Cornwall coast and offers a diverse variety of things to do. Bude is a well established holiday resort with the lovely sandy beach at Summerleaze, to the well served town centre. There are canal walks or boating to enjoy. Bude has excellent Golf links, tennis courts and all other manner of recreational pursuits. Summerleaze beach has a large bathing pool for the non sea lovers and you can enjoy the view from many of the vantage points along the cliff path to Crooklets or south towards Widemouth Bay. Crooklets beach is located to the north of Summerleaze beach and is easily found by either walking north along the coast path for about 7 minutes or if you are in a car then if you pass through the centre of Bude and head out of the one way system at the top of Bude town centre, Crooklets is approximately 500 metres away.

About Clare

My father and I purchased Little Willows back in 2007. It has been a haven for us and our wider family, and we do hope it is for you too. We are invested in continually improving the home-from-home feel, and we hope you will feel instantly relaxed when you arrive knowing that we have thought of everything possible (hopefully!) that will make your stay a very comfortable one.

Clare purchased this bungalow in 2007

Why Clare chose Poundstock

Little Willows has a cosy, home from home feel. We like our guests to walk in and instantly feel at home, many of our visitors have said they have felt it so much they don't want to go back to their own! One thing we are very invested in is making sure the kitchen is well stocked with everything you could possibly need to cook a proper meal. We even have an electric meat carving knife on offer, and why not wake up to a lovely cup of freshly brewed filter coffee in the morning? If there is anything not there, please let us know and we will try and add this in for your next visit.

What makes this bungalow unique

The views are spectacular from the bungalow and the village. You will find lots of lovely spots to sit and watch a sunset over Widemouth, including your very own patio.

Great stuff!

  • 5 of 5

Booking a breeze and the owners were very helpful with clear information provided before our stay and also quick to help with a question we had during our visit. The accommodation was great and had everything we needed. Would be happy to visit this site again.

Top quality accommodation in fabulous location!

  • 5 of 5

A truly wonderful week's holiday staying at Little Willows! As our weather wasn't so good we particularly appreciated how very comfortable & how very thoughtfully & well equipped the bungalow is. High end! It's obvious that the owner has put a great deal of consideration into what to offer at this accommodation! Every little thing one could possibly need is provided, from kitchen items to rainy day entertainment! Spotlessly clean throughout. The beds & lounge suite are comfy. Great outside space and surrounds too, when the weather is better for eating al fresco! It's on an intimate & friendly site with good facilities. A great home-from-home base from which to explore this beautiful area. Without a doubt we intend to return; and sooner rather than later! (We were a family of 4 adults holidaying, but I'd say staying here is suitable for younger & older alike.)

Well worth a stay

  • 3 of 5

Lovely clean well equipped property with sea views on a quiet site. Note the electric meter only takes old pound coins so make sure you take plenty as there is a humidifier on all the time and if you want hot water from immersion it eats it - we just boiled the kettle as there is an electric shower. Lounge diner nice and spacious but bedrooms a bit snug especially the twin although beds very comfy. If there are 2 of you you can't get out of bed at the same time and very little room to dress so if you need help dressing you will have to go in the lounge ( husband has Alzheimer's and needs dressing so the lack of space wasn't ideal but that is just our own situation). Daughter was in double room and also found it on the small side but comfy Plenty of nice eating places Close by and lovely beaches.

Owner's Response: So pleased in general you have enjoyed your holiday and stay at “Little Willows”. We are a little saddened we have had our first review that is less than five stars. We would like to give you some assurances that we are in the process of having a new meter installed that will take both the new one pound and two pound coins. We are sorry for the inconvenience this has caused you in searching for old pound coins. Just to confirm the electricity is set and charged at a non-profit rate to us. The dehumidifier is there for your comfort and can be switched on and off as shown on the instructions stuck to it. It is mainly for use in the autumn and winter when condensation levels rise. So we are sorry you thought it was un-controllable. Our bedroom sizes are fairly standard across the village and we decided in the twin bedroom to put more comfortable and relaxing three foot wide pocketed sprung beds rather than have the narrower two foot six beds. It does narrow the isle a little but still leaving a gap big enough to get out of bed even though it will have to be one after the other! It is important on booking that we are made aware of anybody with special needs so we can let you know what the bungalow provides or doesn’t provide for those needs. We very much hope we will welcome you again to Little Willows. We are always improving the standard of our bungalow and your comments have helped in that aim. Best Wishes Clare & Peter

Perfect home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful holiday bungalow, better than described and shown in the listing. Very well equipped and super comfortable, and clean and fresh on our arrival. The owner was very helpful and informative and we would definitely recommend this bungalow to our family and friends. Good location close to Black Rock beach with its wide expanse of sand and amazing rock pools to explore. Only ten minutes drive into Bude with its quaint unspoilt seaside feel, Urchins cafe is good for a drink and a snack or hot meal. Widemouth Manor a short walk down the lane for good pub or restaurant food but take a torch if you're going to be walking back after dark. Elements Italian restaurant on the coast road is lovely. All in all a fantastic place to be.
