  • "Very nice accommodation just a shame we had 5 men replacing a roof and cutting tiles all week."

    Obviously no fault to the owner, just meant we could not sit outside and enjoy the beautiful weather and views we had.

    Thank you for your review. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at Atlantic Reach. We are sorry that there was another property having its roof repaired. We hope that you would consider visiting us again in the future. Property Owner

    Beautifully clean and comfortable with everything we could need. We enjoyed the welcome pack. The decking with great views was a lovely place to sit and the location close to the beach was so good. Would love to come again.

    Thank you for your great review. We are delighted that you enjoyed the stay. See you again soon! Property Owner

  • "2nd time we have stayed at Atlantic Reach."

    Springtime and Christmas. Both excellent. A wonderful property to have a family get together . Facilities are fabulous and everything has been thought of. A personal preference would be a standard microwave although I appreciate what you have is multi functional and in keeping with the super kitchen.

    Thank you for your review. We are delighted that you had a great time - and that this was your second visit. We hope that you might make a third visit sometime soon. Property Owner

  • "This is a Beautiful property it was our second visit Lovely sea view very relaxing to be outside on the decking and sun loungers, be it with a nice coffee in the morning or glass of something later in the day."

    L have some disabilities so to have the bedroom and onsuite downstairs is a big + for me. I came home and have already booked a week next year. Quite hard to find downstairs bedroom and onsuite. This property has much to offer. However I wish there was a step from the garden onto the decking to help anyone who may struggle with the step up. Look forward to our future visit

    Thank you for visiting us again. We are delighted that the property works well for all your family. You are right, there are few properties that have such accessible layouts. We look forward to welcoming you again. Property Owner

  • "Superb accommodation with everything needed for a big family holiday."

    All excellent quality equipment and furnishings. We had a couple of little people with us in the upstairs twin room and one of them almost tipped the chest of drawers over so maybe consider a safety fastener to the wall. But we would still highly recommend this property and will definitely stay again.

    Thank you for the review and feedback. We are pleased that you found the property to be 5 star, and thank you for raising your concern about the chest of drawers. Property Owner

  • "In every way this holiday was superb."

    The only issue in the whole time was an incorrect key code number. Fortunately the weather was fine and soon resolved with a phone call. We hope to stay again in the future. We would thoroughly reccomend this venue for a holiday. Many thanks.

    Thank you for your review. We are delighted to hear your holiday was ‘superb’. Sorry for the key code confusion - not nice to be in the rain after a long drive. Please do visit us again. Property Owner

    Also one of the beds upstairs was unstable and squeaked loudly every time my daughter moved. The kettle was rusty. Everything else about the house was great but comfortable beds is incredibly important!

    2023 Update: we can confirm that the mattresses in the downstairs bedroom have been replaced and we now have new beds in the twin room upstairs. Thank you for your comments. We are delighted that the house was great. We really appreciate any feedback, and we will act on your comments regarding the mattress and bed. We are proud of the track record of excellent reviews our guests give us about the comfort and amenities in the house and we work hard each year to maintain and improve these standards and deliver a great experience. We are sorry that you feel we slightly missed the mark this time and we would be delighted to welcome you back again. Property Owner

    We used the property as a base while walking the South West Coastal Path, it was very easy to get to the A39 to travel up and down the coast to the various pick-up points. The outside shower room was really useful, as was the bottle fridge! A great house in a wonderful location.

    Thank you for your review. We are delighted that you were able to enjoy the South West Coastal Path. Hope to see you again next year Property Owner

  • "An amazing property with a brilliant view over the bay."

    Fabulous sunsets, altogether a very relaxing week. It was such a shame that the owners tried to get us to pay for damages to the property which were clearly normal wear and tear from the holiday season. This has completely ruined our lovely memories of Atlantic Reach and now unfortunately we wouldn't recommend anyone to the property for fear they will go through the same upset returning home.

    Thank you for your review, we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. As our ongoing commitment to our guests our housekeeping team provide a very comprehensive cleaning and maintenance approach. It is critical to us that everything works, and the property is clean at the start of the rental. We understand that things can get damaged or broken during a visit. We encourage any guests to report damage to the agents so there are no surprises for our housekeepers when they start the cleaning. By doing so, this would have avoided some of the issues.

  • "Atlantic Reach Was (is)a beautiful property so well equipped."

    We had a a wonderful family holiday. We love Cornwall and have stayed in many different areas. The house and its location was the best yet. My only qualm about the property (being a little disabled) it would have been nice to have a step at some place up to the Beautiful decking. As the step up was a struggle for me and I had to pull myself up holding on the fence. Would love to go back though. *****.

  • "This is a fantastic property in a great location."

    With 6 adults and 4 young boys the washing machine and dishwasher were in daily use. A good sized garden for the kids to run around in, good neighbours. The newly built outside shower room was also a boon. Widemouth bay is a great jump off point for The Lost Gardens of Heligan and National Trust properties. We also visited Bude pool, a man made pool filled every day by the sea. Only one observation, the back gate to the property is not child proof, our 2 year old grandson took 2 minutes to work out how to open the latch.

    Thank you for your kind review. We are delighted that you and the family enjoyed your stay. Thank you for bringing the gate latch to our attention. We will be modifying the locking mechanism to provide an addition level of security. We hope you may choose to come and visit us again. Property Owner

    Atlantic Reach was exactly as it said, clean, comfortable with easy access to the beach. We were restricted to what we could do as in visiting local places due to COVID:19, but apart from that we had a restful holiday and the weather, for once, was glorious.

  • "A very well appointed house, which had been described and depicted accurately on the website."

    There was room for everyone to be comfortable and secure. The CoVid-19 restrictions meant that our time there was a little shorter, with fewer soft furnishings ( eg cushions and throws). The brochure was sent to us electronically which was very helpful, but there were no takeaway menus to peruse etc. Because of the nature of our party, we stayed in for the most part, and the house absorbed us all with no bother. The view from the enclosed garden was lovely. A super house which we agreed was one of the best we had stayed in- I would love to return, post-pandemic .

The property

This stunning contemporary house sits in the pretty coastal village of Widemouth Bay, a few miles from the beautiful seaside resort of Bude and just a stone’s throw from the Blue Flag beach at Widemouth Bay.

The property boasts magnificent views across the coastline from many parts of the house and offers a relaxed and warming retreat for friends and families seeking to explore this wonderful coastal area. A spacious hallway awaits you as you enter the property, offering ample space to drop off your coats and boots, flip flops and sun hats. The delightful and airy south facing sitting room with vaulted ceiling and wood burning stove lies at the rear of the property with large windows and patio doors providing an abundance of natural light. Two large sofas to curl up on provide ample room to unwind; relax watching the smart TV with additional cheer and warmth provided by the wood burning stove during those chillier winter months. Throw open the patio doors during the summer months and let the cool breeze wash over you, as you step out onto the decking and patio with spectacular views of Black Rock and the Atlantic Ocean. Enjoy a refreshing beverage whilst enjoying the sunset, safe in the knowledge that children and dogs can play safely in the good sized, fully enclosed garden. The sitting room leads to the open-plan kitchen/diner, where you’ll find a range of contemporary appliances including a Nespresso coffee machine, so you can easily rustle up a delicious meal for the whole family. The 10-seater dining table enables everyone to enjoy sharing a meal together with a well-deserved glass of wine. In 2020/21 the property was extended to include a second sitting/TV room, with bi-fold doors opening onto a sheltered south facing decking area with fabulous views across the bay and countryside.

The room has a smart TV, X-box and a comfy corner sofa for daytime chilling and relaxing evenings. The three ground-floor bedrooms set up as a king, with en-suite shower room, and two twins provide versatile accommodation and lead you back towards the front of the house. The family bathroom on this floor offers both a bath and shower, so even those with limited mobility can look forward to staying here. Climb the oak staircase to the first floor and you will find a twin room and the master king room, where you can enjoy a sea view from the comfort of an armchair. A well-equipped family shower room serves this floor. Widemouth Bay and Black Rock Beach are a mere 50m walk from the house, they offer breath-taking sunsets over the Atlantic Ocean and some of the best surfing on Cornwall’s North Coast.

Additional luxury is provided by the stunning new semi-outdoor spiral shower added in 2021.

As you come off the beach enter the beautiful shower area, enjoy a warming shower and remove the salt water and sand after a day in the surf or on the beach.

From the shower It’s just a step to access the house into the new drying room, as you transition from outdoors to inside.

With surfboard and wetsuit hire, Trelawny Tearooms, Widemouth Bay stores selling fresh fish, locally reared meat and everyday items, Widemouth Bay Café (open daily) and The Bay View Inn, to name but a few; Widemouth offers something for everyone.

About the location


Bude 3 miles; Tintagel 16.6 miles

On the outskirts of Bude, this small coastal hamlet looks out over one of the area’s top surfing beaches. Famous for its rugged coastline, tumbling surf and excellent walking, it’s the place to relax and unwind. Lively Bude, with its town, beaches, clubs, pubs and resort attractions is 3 miles away, while to the north the Coast Path winds its way over the cliff tops toward the lonely lighthouse at Hartland Point, and on to the beautiful cliff side village of Clovelly. Take the main ‘Atlantic Highway’ north from Bude and you’ll also pass the Big Sheep and Milky Way theme parks, both great days out. If you love the countryside but don’t want to be too far from the holiday action, this is the place to stay.
