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.
