Bungalow in Widemouth Bay, Bude, Cornwall, England - Close Enough To Easily Walk To The Beach But Away From The Coastal Road
About Tim Woolcock
We are a family of 5 living in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire. We have 3 school age children and we fit our own holidays in Tanglin around bookings as they come in.
Why Tim Woolcock chose Poundstock
Tim's grandparents bought Tanglin as a holiday home in the mid 1970s and it has been in the family ever since. We have been enjoying the benefits of their foresight ever since. There have been many properties built in Widemouth since but few have that perfect balance of closeness to beach and privacy. We used to enjoy staying in Tanglin as a couple but since having children of our own, we have come to appreciate its location and layout even more so.
What makes this Bungalow unique
We have enjoyed staying in Tanglin as a couple and as a family with growing children we have come to appreciate its location even more so. How many other places can you realistically carry children home all the way from the beach and then be sure that they will sleep soundly without being disturbed by strange noises in the night? Now that the children are slightly older, we enjoy walking together to Bude along the coast path or across the fields and then following the restored canal on windier days. Perhaps stopping off at 'Elements' or the 'Weir Cafe/restaurant' on the way home.

We thought the website listing for your house was entirely accurate, and we were very satisfied.
The cottage was exactly as described in the advert. Its so nice getting ready for the beach in the house then wandering 100 yards to start swimming and surfing. Then back "home" to shower n change and a spot of lunch. As the beach is so near you can go surfing in the afternoon too.
We found a few pubs nearby and the food was most excellent and the staff very welcoming.
The key arrived just before the holiday, this was obviously well organised. Also just before the holiday a long email arrived, stating exactly what is supplied as part of the holiday and what you need to bring.
As this cottage is only 4 hours away, I'll certainly book again.
So a big thank you to Tim and Emma
