  • "We had a fabulous weeks stay at The Thatchings and as a family of four this property was perfect for us."

    We found the cottage really cosy and comfortable and we all felt at home as soon as we arrived. The property is very well maintained and equipped and it was immaculately clean on our arrival. It’s set in a great location just outside Bude, ideal for just chilling or exploring the local beeches and north coast in general. There is no BBQ at the property which is a shame as we would have made use of the garden a lot more had there been one but this is only a very minor gripe. We’d highly recommend this property and we hope to visit again very soon.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your comments, we’re so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Thatchings and holiday in Cornwall. I note your comment regarding a BBQ being provided, however, being a thatched property our insurers have some strict restrictions on us in this area. However, guests can bring a BBQ as long as it’s sited well away from the cottage. Thanks again for your kind feedback, and it would be great to welcome you back again soon. Regards Steve Property Owner

  • "Fabulous! A beautiful cottage well situated with driveway parking and an enclosed garden."

    Thatchings has a very well equipped kitchen with all the pots, pans and utensils you would need. Fridge freezer, dish washer, washing machine, toaster & microwave even a slow cooker! TV with Netflix/Prime. Very comfortable and Steve was in touch to make sure you knew how to get access etc. A 30 minute walk to Bude avoiding the main roads. Pub opposite. Perfect, we had such an amazing stay and the weather was kind to us too.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to provide feedback. It’s very encouraging to read your comments as we try so hard to ensure guests have a lovely and comfortable stay. It’s worth noting Netflix/Prime is accessed via the guest’s own login. I’m really glad you did the walk to Bude, it’s one I enjoy too. I hope you’ll come back and stay with us again sometime soon. Thanks again. Best wishes Steve Property Owner

  • "This is a lovely clean cottage in a perfect location with great facilities and the attention to detail by the owners was second to none."

    So good to be pet friendly and our little dog, as did we, felt immediately at home. It had everything we needed and more, with nice little touches to get us going, like tea, biscuits and wood for the fire. Overall, the cottage was more than we expected.

    Nice quiet location. You can walk from there into Bude down a lovely bridle path. It's very clean and has been kept immaculate. The treats on arrival are great.

    Thank you for taking the time to give such nice feedback on the cottage, and I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay despite storm Eunice. I agree, the walk into Bude is really pleasant, with views across the hills to the sea. We hope you’ll visit us again soon. Best Wishes and thanks again. Steve. Property Owner

    Steve the owner arranged for the cottage to be cleaned the day before our arrival so we could check in any time on the 23rd December. There was an array of gifts on the table,milk & cornish tea. The basket by the fie was filled with logs ready for our first evening in this gorgeous cottage. We wanted a quite Christmas away from the hustle & bustle of the city & we did in this warm homely cosy cottage. Anyone booking thatching cottage will Not be disappointed fab fab fab

  • "We had an excellent week at Thatchings."

    The cottage is absolutely beautiful with lovely, high quality furnishings, a proper chocolate box thatched cottage. The garden gets the sun and has two lovely seating areas. Two local pubs and local shop in the village are super. Great location for exploring with Bude on your doorstep. And Steve is extremely helpful, we left our hard drive in the back of the TV in error and Steve was super helpful in posting this back to us. 5 star week.

  • "We arrived at the cottage and it looked even better than the photos, it truly is a chocolate box cottage."

    We entered to be met with a selection of essentials, which after a long drive, was really appreciated. The cottage itself is beautiful with everything you could possibly need for your stay and a nice sized garden for sitting out with the dogs and chilling. It is a great base to go exploring and during our stay we visited Port Isaac, Tintagel and Padstow, all dog friendly, as well as numerous trips to Bude for the lovely river walks and a wander along the beach. We had a fabulous week in this part of Cornwall and will definetly be returning.

  • "A lovely cottage which was ideal as a base for discovering Cornwall."

    It was a delightful cottage with an enclosed garden (with plenty of seating and tables) which is ideal if you have a dog. The kitchen was well equipped and spacious and this was good news as not a lot of places were open for takeaway or eating in, as it was early in the season and post pandemic. The whole cottage was very clean and I would love to recommend this home from home to others, as we had a wonderful family break.

About the location


Bude 2.5 miles.

A charming small town close to the resort town of Bude, one of Cornwall’s premier holiday locations. With its lovely old church, local pubs and good array of amenities, it’s a fantastic base for exploring the stunning beaches and spectacular coastal scenery for which the area is famous. Bude’s beaches attract surfers from all over the country and when conditions are right you’d be hard pushed to find better surf. When the tide is out, miles of golden sand and hundreds of rocky pools keep visitors occupied for hours. The South West Coast Path and many other rights of way winding over the cliff tops and through lush green fields looking out over the sea are a haven for walkers and lovers of the open countryside, while a good shopping centre and a selection of pubs, clubs and restaurants take care of any other wants and needs. Bude Canal, a registered nature reserve, passes through the town and rowing a boat through its calm waters or walking the towpath among the beautiful (and friendly) water fowl that live among the reeds is a great way to spend an hour or two. Within the town there are also two golf courses, an indoor swimming pool, bowling alley and leisure centre. A perfect location for all that North Cornwall has to offer.
