About Jackie Bissell

We are a couple from Kent who have both worked for ourselves for many years. We have very busy lives, working and looking after our 5 kids. We've always gone to Cornwall to get away from it all. We both enjoy coastal walking and enjoy the stunning North Cornwall coast being right on the doorstep.

Jackie Bissell purchased this house in 2014

Why Jackie Bissell chose Widemouth Bay

After visiting Cornwall for many years on family holidays and the hazy days of run to the sun, we discovered Widemouth Bay on a coastal walk one day. We wanted to have a place that was easy to holiday, near the sea and good for the children. Widemouth Bay has everything we need. So after a lot of hard work between us we made Trecane a lovely comfortable family house to spend time in and allow others to do the same. We hope people enjoy the house as much as we do. It really is a place to unwind!

What makes this house unique

Stunning sea views from the bedrooms, lounge and kitchen window.. it's just so relaxing. We love the coastal walks, the sunsets and fact that the pub is a 5 minute walk away and downhill on the way back! It's really easy for adults and kids to have a good time, surfing body boarding, bike riding, rock pooling, all in walking distance. The coastal path is on the doorstep with so much to see. The pub is good, the convenience store is good and the restaurants are relaxing with good food. You really could have a holiday without even getting in your car.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Katy Brooks

Trecane.... what can I say? This house and it's location are fantastic! We rented the house as a surprise 30th birthday for my partner and what a weekend it was! Everything about the house was perfect and the landlady Jackie was extremely helpful and accommodating too. She even baked my partner a lovely birthday cake... as if we needed spoiling anymore! The only hang up we had is that we didn't stay longer! Many great memories made in this beautiful house, and if the opportunity to stay there again arose we would all be there in a heart beat. Thanks again for everything Jackie we had the best time ever.

Another great stay !!

  • 5 of 5

Another great stay at this fabulous house. Watched the huge waves of Storm Brian from the lounge, just amazing to be so close, but warm and cosy inside. Plenty of space ( and cups ! ) for 10 of us. Jackie was as responsive as always to any queries and offers no hassle booking. Planning our next visit !.

Beautiful, spacious, luxurious - and WHAT a position!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful stay at Trecane Beach House. The position, right on the beach and to be able to sit in the window, watching the waves, is superb. My wife wanted to stay and move there.

The house is beautiful, with everything we could want. So clean, comfortable and relaxing.

Surfing was right outside the door, just a few metres away. The Raven Surf School is there and they were great at getting us started.

There are great pubs and restaurants just a couple of minutes walk away, with great food at reasonable prices.

Widemouth bay is also well positioned for day trips to Port Isaac (Doc Martin), Tintagel and Padstow.

This is a superb place to stay at any time of year. We were out of season and loved every minute. Trecane is wonderful. Can we go back next week please?

Golden Wedding celebration

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful way to celebrate our Golden Wedding. The magic started when we arrived to find a delicious chocolate cake and card awaiting us and continued for the rest of the week. There was so much space for the ten of us and the nine year olds loved their bunk beds, while the adults enjoyed lying in the comfortable beds looking at, and listening to, the sea. The location was nice not to have to worry about parking for the beach and Rosie and Josh enjoyed body boarding every day. We had a lovely celebratory meal at Elements ..., so much so that we returned later in the week. We all agreed it was the perfect venue and would love to return.

Perfect House, Amazing Location!

  • 5 of 5

6 adults, 4 children and a small dog.

We had the best Easter holiday we could have hoped for and Trecane was the perfect house for us. The children loved sleeping in the double bunk room and had an absolute blast learning to surf just across the road. The water was a little chilly so it was very handy that the house next door rented out all kinds of wetsuits, booties etc.

The house is perfectly equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay.

The costal walks are fantastic and a great day out walking the dog.

A visit to Boscastle is a must.

I didn't meet the owner Jackie but she was very responsive via email, all information provided when booking, and in the house, was self explanatory so we did not have to get in touch with her during our stay.

I can't wait to visit the area again and will definitely be booking Trecane in the future.

2nd visit to Trecane - just as great !

  • 5 of 5

Great 2nd stay at this wonderful house. Plenty of space for 10 of us. Just the best located house for the beach with an amazing views from the lounge and bedrooms. Access to the Coastal Path is just on the doorstep. When the sea was too rough the children kayaked in Bude Canal, which was perfect for them. Jackie the owner is very responsive and immediately sorted out an issue we had on arrival ( my fault !). Couldn't ask for more. Hope to return again.
