A Relaxing holiday in a beautiful Cornish cottage
We arrived at our holiday cottage on the outskirts of Bude in need of a good holiday. This lovely, cosy, authentic Cornish cottage ticked all the boxes, we walked in and immediately felt at home. The cottage is a delight, very comfortable, clean and furnished well. The gardens are a good size and there are sea glimpses, we walked to the beach and the town, a pretty walk down quiet country lanes. The local pub across a field is very welcoming and the food really good, especially the Sunday roast and fish & chips. They hold a quiz evening in the week and occasionally live music at the weekend.
We would highly recommend this cottage for a relaxing holiday in Cornwall
So happy you enjoyed your stay. Hopefully you will book again next year.
The cottage was lovely. With only 3 of us in it, it felt massive. And so much history surrounding it, it really was a great place to stay. There was everything we needed for our stay. Kitchen was fully equipped and bathroom had a fantastic shower! And it was spotlessly clean. We walked in to Bude a few times (approx 40 mins). The beaches in Bude were brilliant. We also ventured further afield to the Eden Project and Padstow (an hour away by car). All in all we would definitely love to go back.
Roomy cottage in Poughill
Very quiet, peaceful location in the village with nice garden for children, and great being close to Bude and the local beaches.
Local pub 8 to 10 minute walk away......footpath crosses a field.
Good size rooms & comfortable beds.....with plenty of cupboard space.
Be aware, just one loo .......in the bathroom.
Would have preferred more cutlery, crockery & mugs as there were times when we were short, because they were in the dishwasher !
A disappointment was no fire was to be to be lit in the lounge, and yet the details show a picture of a roaring fire !
Overall......a good time had by all :)
Thankyou for your honest review. In order to provide the best service possible for our houseguests, we very much value feedback.
Full details of the cottage and it’s amenities can be found in our listing. Please could potential guests ensure they note this information before making a booking. The cottage listing is for 6 adults/children. Graham, in light of your review we will provide future guests with additional crockery and cutlery, to make their stay more enjoyable.
Unfortunately due to insurance purposes we are unable to allow guests to light the wood burner, however we have a modern central heating system in the cottage to keep you warm (should we have a typical British summer!)

Beautiful cottage, in a beautiful setting
Me and my family just got back from a wonderful weeks holiday staying at this beautiful cottage. The cottage comes with everything you need. It’s so cute and cosy my children didn’t want to go home! The neighbour is so friendly and said she enjoyed listening to the children playing in the gardens. I can’t say a bad word about the whole experience. We enjoyed some wonderful days out at all the local beaches, and particularly enjoyed the restaurant on Crooklets beach called Rosie’s. It’s well worth a visit 😍👌🏻 The local town shops are lovely, We brought some lovely bits and pieces. My children also had a lovely day at the local swimming pool which has a wave machine and they said it was amazing! We would definitely stay here again and hope to do so in the future. Thankyou Ross and Naomi for letting us stay in your beautiful holiday home 😊
Surpassed our expectations!
This cottage oozes character, once you get used to the slopping floors and creaking floorboards we loved it! Attention to detail, clean and lots of space. We made use of all the outside areas, great bbq and sitting round the chimeria in the evening was lovely. Some great beaches and restaurants around Bude. Would definitely recommend this quiet, tucked away gem!.
Upon arrival, I was taken back by the size, space and well thought out layout of the cottage.
A gem of a property, in a very quiet location, both peaceful and relaxing yet just over 5 minutes drive to all you would want in a seaside town. My family and I enjoyed our weeks stay the owners had thought of everything 10 out of 10 to them, it was a very enjoyable experience.
