  • "Duck house is an amazing property, definitely has 'wow factor'."

    It has been sympathetically transformed from an old barn and contains everything needed for a wonderful holiday. Sheila greeted us with a warm welcome and went out of her way to help us with anything. Sam and Helen allowed us to spend hours in the lambing shed, which we found fascinating, and answered our many questions. THANK YOU to everyone. We will be back. Joan & Alan

    Thanks so much for your kind words, and you were lovely guests to have. So pleased you enjoyed Duck House, and as you said when you arrived, the photos really don't do it justice. The sea views are so amazing - must get some new pictures done! Property Owner

  • "It was a cosy yet roomy cottage, perfect location close to the seaside town of Bude yet in the countryside."

    Great amenities, lovely and warm and we had a friendly welcome from Sheila.

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.
