  • "Another stay at this property and equally good as the previous one"

  • "Great property in a close proximity to the town’s shops and facilities."

    Very well equipped house with a high standard of cleanliness, the only slight niggle would be the tight access for a wide car to get onto the driveway. However this would not deter us returning for another holiday.

  • "Great location, close to all amenities."

    The kitchen is very well equipped. House was spotless when we arrived, and lovely and warm as heating had been put on. Shower was great and beds very comfortable. Enclosed garden was secure for our dogs, it was lovely to be able to bring them both on holiday with us. The front door did stick a little on opening and some of the internal doors were difficult/ noisy to close but this did not affect our holiday. It would have been useful to have a long handled brush and dustpan to sweep floors. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

  • "Have used Sykes for many years and have booked numerous properties over the years and this has been the worst we have come across unfortunately."

    Although in a central area with easy access to shops etc the area is not pleasant - there were 3 police cars attending the next door property one of the mornings we were there! Access to the property is poor - using the drive for parking the car is very tight and the hedge needs cutting back. The front door sticks and is difficult to open. The same with the back door which needs a good clean from the outside! Some of the problems we had during our stay: 1. Main light in lounge not working - probably light bulb needs changing - we bumped into owner and informed him of this (and other things) and he said he can't do anything if no-one tells him (nothing was done to rectify problems while we were there for rest of week after informing owner) so we left a written note when we left. The fire in the lounge not working. Lounge uncomfortable and unwelcoming - plain white walls ceiling doors etc - no mirrors pictures etc no colour. Very strong smell of bleach through the whole house for the first few days. 2. One of kitchen chairs broken - bin lid in kitchen didn't close properly so needed weight on it to keep it closed - rear light in kitchen didn't work and light switch 'sizzled' when switched on 3 Pull cord in downstairs toilet is dirty 4. Bathroom window above sink wouldn't open 5. Constant unknown odour in back bedroom which remained even if window opened or spray used 6. No information details provided - which rubbish goes into which bin - there are 4 bins! When is collection day - details of local dr etc - recommended places to eat would be helpful. 7. No welcome pack - after a long drive would be nice to be provided milk and maybe a biscuit or similar 8. Why charge for 7 days when 1 day is virtually written off - can't arrive before 5pm and have to leave by 10am - without notice someone came on Sunday morning to cut grass at front and rear - why couldn't this be done between 10 am and 5 pm on the Saturday so as not to disturb Although Property was very clean it is very tired and needs a good revamp

  • "Great stay in Bude."

    This property is ideally located for Bude town and beaches which are all in walking distance. The owners have thought of everything that you might need in the kitchen and even provide throws in the lounge in case you are a little chilly in the evening. One criticism is that the hedge beside the driveway needs to be cut right back as it makes an already narrow space unnecessarily narrower for larger cars

  • "Locks/bolts on loo and bathroom door would be nice."

    Also couldn't find any info on recycling/bin collection- had to lift the liners out of the bins to determine what went where (no obvious glass recycling, either?). Other than that - house was comfy and very convenient location for beaches/shops/restaurants.

  • "The house was lovely and in a fantastic location."

    Plenty of kitchenware and all the crockery we could possibly want. The garden was a brilliant sun trap and a lovely spot for evening meals and drinks. The property was really clean and well presented throughout, and being able to nip out of the back gate and be in Co-Op within a minute was so convenient. There were only 2 things that we think could have been better. Firstly, there was no information folder or leaflet for the property, something most self catering properties do provide. This meant we had no instructions on how to sort the bed linen, recycling or the like. We'd advise putting a small instruction folder together as this would be a huge help. The other thing that could be improved is the TV - if the TV provided was a smart TV then we could have cast our own streaming services to it which would have helped entertain the younger members of our party. These are really minor issues though - overall we thought the property was excellent!

  • "The arrival time and departure times means essentially a whole day is removed from your holiday."

    If we are asked to leave at 10am it does not take a team of cleaners 7 hours to prepare the property for the next people. Particularly when you require the property to be left as found so we essentially clean it for you??

  • "A little toilet paper in both toilets would have been useful until we got to a shop."

    Good job we had small cars as would have been impossible to get a big one between the gate posts and even when very wet had to park right in the hedge and walk on the grass. Location very handy.

  • "House is in a great location for the shops of Bude and the Beach you could leave the car parked at the house and walk everywhere."

    It has a safe and secure garden for the dog which we loved. The beds were clean and comfortable, and the kitchen is well equipped. However the house in our opinion is looking tired and needs some money spending on it especially decorating the inside and the garden outside. The cleaners could perhaps do a better job as cleaning the front windows to remove dog marks with a dirty cloth won’t ack it neither will leaving hair in the bathroom sink or marks in the bath. These are only a few things and would in no way stop us from booking the property again in the future.

  • "Location was amazing, perfect for access to the beach and Bude town itself."

    Accommodation was clean and perfect for a weeks stay with two teenagers! Having amazing weather helped. In terms of anything that could improve the stay there are a few minor things in terms of practicalities. - having a side gate that was lockable, plus the gate at the end of the rear garden with a lock accessible from the car park would be great. - The shower drainage was very poor, as was the drainage from the washing machine which then pumped water up through the kitchen sink - if the garage was available as a usable space for either parking another car or storage of wetsuits/surf boards overnight. However, these are minor issues as overall we had an amazing time. House was really comfortable and felt like a home away from home rather than a Holiday home.

  • "We asked for extra pillows as there were only one each but didn't get them,so had to buy some ."

    The bed in the front bedroom was really uncomfortable.,not enough storage in all bedrooms . There was no carpet on the stairs . A light is needed in the back garden. The owner was told about a problem with the upstairs toilet and asked if the top came off and was told that we are not plumbers and would like him to get it fixed .Also the cleaner would not come in and change the bedding and clean which we were told that she would be doing in the middle so we had to do it ourselves. Also each time we contacted the owner he didn't get back to us so we had to keep ringing him .

    Thank you for your feedback. The owner thought there were 2 pillows each so is sorry if this was not the case and will ensure they are checked. They have not had any previous issues reported before about the beds or a lack of storage but is sorry if the bed was not to your liking. The owner did come to address the toilet issue that evening and had a plumber there the next day so acted as quickly as he could to get it fixed. The cleaner also dropped off fresh and linen and towels after your first week and took away the used items. Not many cleaners are prepared to enter a property during someone's stay at present due to concerns around Covid. I am sorry for any inconvenience but we would not pressure a cleaner to enter a property for this. The owner said there is a light over the side door. He also answered all your calls but had trouble reaching the cleaner at first so did not call you bask as there was no update. We are sorry if the property did not meet your expectations but do hope you enjoyed your stay otherwise. Property Owner

  • "After reading some previous reviews, this holiday cottage completely exceeded my expectations."

    Clearly the owners have worked hard to provide an extremely comfortable holiday property. Important things: a great modern bathroom with an excellent power shower, ultra comfortable bed with really good quality bedding, large fluffy towels, good internet connection, and a secure garden for our dogs. All the furniture in the property is clearly of a very good quality and I appreciated the throws having been provided for the dogs in order to protect the sofas. The kitchen was well equipped with a large fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. The house is ideally situated in the centre of Bude (but also very quiet). It backs onto the car park of the Coop, with a rear gate in the garden - perfect if you just want to pop out quickly for that pint of milk or bottle of wine. All the shops and restaurants are literally within a minute of two walking distance. The rear of the property also leads directly onto a public footpath across the golf course, so perfect for dog walking. The house was spotlessly clean throughout - not a trace of web or dust. Just two things I would mention, yes, the parking is tight and anyone with a 4x4 is going to struggle - I have a Nissan Qashqai and I had to have my wits about me! Also the provision of a full length mirror would be an excellent extra touch. I would absolutely not hesitate to book this property again.

    The garden was spacious and secure for our dog. There are a number of things that let this property down though. The bed was very uncomfortable and you can feel every spring as you move. No recycling bins were provided, only a single waste bin. We ended up bringing our own glass home to recycle. It would also benefit from a new kettle in keeping with the modern fitted kitchen too.

  • "The inside of the property is comfortable, fitted out with high quality furnishings."

    We found the sofas and bed to be very comfy. The kitchen has plenty of storage space, with newly fitted appliances and quality crockery and cutlery. It has everything without being cluttered. (A new tin opener and a water tank for the coffee machine are needed). The outside space was enclosed at the rear, ideal for our dog. A gate leads straight into the co-op carpark so you couldnt be any closer for stocking up on last minute essentials. The garden could benefit from a little TLC. The addition of some comfortable garden furniture, outside lighting and a place to dry clothes would be great for families. We had a great week staying in cranberry and would definately stay again.

    We were the first guests at this cottage so there were a few very minor things like no scissors in the kitchen and the duvets were far too thick for us, but, on the whole, it was a lovely place to stay right in the middle of Bude. There was a dog bowl and towels specially for our dog which was a useful idea particularly considering the weather.

About the location


Tintagel 17 miles.

Bude is a fabulous coastal town that once visited you will want to come back to time and time again. Bude has something for everyone, great beaches for relaxing, and building sandcastles on, rockpools for investigating at low tide and cafes to watch it all from. The rolling waves are great for surfing all year round, and the footpaths by the restored canal or on the North Cornwall coastal path offer you a superb opportunity to explore and appreciate the outstanding countryside. Bude also has a superb golf course, indoor swimming pool, bowling alley/indoor play area and Heritage Centre at Bude Castle. It also has a good selection of local shops, supermarkets, cafes, pubs, restaurants and excellent Information Centre. Within a short drive are the remains of a huge iron age hill fort at Warbstow Bury, from where panoramic views can be seen. For days out, take the coast road north to see the lonely lighthouse above the sea at Hartland Point or walk or ride a donkey down the steep and cobbled village street (no cars allowed) of beautiful Clovelly to the harbour and the pub far below. Follow the coast in the other direction and there's the little cove of Crackington Haven, Boscastle, King Arthur's castle at Tintagel, Doc Martin's Port Wenn at Port Isaac and yet more great surfing beaches at Polzeath.
