    “Tucked Away Romantic Cottage”

    Decided to take a late one week break on the wild North Cornwall coast with my dog and do some walking on the nearby South West Coastal Path ...

    Decided to take a late one week break on the wild North Cornwall coast with my dog and do some walking on the nearby South West Coastal Path. Easterly Cottage seemed to have just the right balance of character and amenities I was looking for, with its close proximity to the coast and being pet friendly. One always books these places with some trepidation and with the suspicion that there might be something horrible and undisclosed. It was with some relief and the most pleasant of surprises to find that Easterly Cottage is exactly as you would want it to be. Located within minutes of down town Bude and also several other more secluded but charming coastal locations. Its amenities are of excellent quality and comprehensive, all as described, so no further comment is required on that front. Clean and beautifully presented, it is a truly classic cottage. Characterful and charming throughout with its open fire place and exposed beams.............. and my favourite feature of all.............the balcony bedroom with a huge king sized bed. All this and,at the same time, blended tastefully with a modern kitchen and shower room. Whilst I rented the cottage for myself and the dog, it is most definitely a romantic, cosy "getaway from it all" sort of place and one that I will most certainly return to. Two minor points to mention....that in my opinion do not detract overall from the place are: 1 - Ploughill is clearly a rat run for traffic heading to and from Bude, so at certain times of the day the traffic noise is rather more than would otherwise be desirable. 2- Keeping the Log Burner alight can be a challenge. I am well used to log burners but if visitors are coming in the Autumn or Winter I suggest that you come armed with plenty of kindling and firelighters to throw at the thing to keep it going when it starts to flag! Neither of these are deal breakers but, for balance sake, need to be recorded. Highly recommended.

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.
