    “This was our third visit to the Fort and have already booked to go again next year.”

    The new bathroom is brilliant, it was the one room we didn’t like as the bath previously was very narrow and difficult to stand and have a shower in. Now there is a new bathroom with a wider bath plus a walk in shower cubicle. We love the fort as it’s very much like home. The views are amazing and even if the weather isn’t great just sitting in the lounge window watching the sea is perfect! Highly recommended!

The property

This delightful semi-detached cottage is in a fantastic position overlooking Bude Canal and just a few paces from the beach in the popular coastal town of Bude.

For traditional fun-filled family holidays, where every day is a lazy day spent on the beach, this delightfully quirky house could not be better situated, with the wonderful extensive sands of Summerleaze directly opposite and just one-minute walk away.

Arriving at the cottage, the whole family will be in a rush to get onto the beach, but take a while to appreciate the charming way that the owners have designed this lovely house with your comfort in mind that makes it light and spacious yet cosy and welcoming.

On the ground floor there is a really spacious sitting room with views to remember.

A well-designed kitchen with dining area boasts a skylight which lets the light flood in.

Upstairs, the three comfortable bedrooms make the most of the views, perfect to wake up to.

From the twin bedroom there is a small sun room, a lovely quiet spot to relax at any time of day.

Outside is a garage with table tennis to keep everyone entertained even on rainy days.

Bude, named the Best UK Coastal Resort in the British Travel Awards 2015, offers everything you would expect from a small seaside town deserving this accolade.

Summerleaze Beach where you will find yourself being drawn to each and every day has a tremendous range of activities for all the family, including the must-visit sheltered sea water pool, ideal for the young ones.

All in all, The Fort offers a holiday you will remember and one to enjoy at any time of the year.

About the location

BUDE

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.
