The property

On Cornwall's north coast is Columbine Cottage, part of a neatly manicured, wooded site comprising 14 holiday cottages on the very edge of Bude.

With an indoor heated swimming pool, games room and children's play field, this is an ideal property for a family wanting to enjoy a coastal escape and take advantage of the nearby sandy beaches and excellent surf on offer from North Cornwall's Atlantic waves.

The property offers off-road parking, as well as a pretty garden with immaculate lawn, seating area and superb long rural views, where you can enjoy breakfast and a morning coffee in the pleasant Cornish sunshine.

Head inside to discover a contemporary kitchen, fully-equipped with all of the appliances you'll need during to create delicious meals, which can be enjoyed at the dining table.

After dinner, move over to the sofas, relax and enjoy a favourite family film on the TV.

When it's time for a good night's rest, discover two bright and cheery bedrooms, comprising a double and a twin.

The property is close to host of amenities, shops, café, pubs and restaurants, as well as a lake, a golf course and a choice of three picturesque beaches.

Spend the day at Bude Sea Pool, a semi-natural pool that is popular for swimming and paddleboarding, while Crooklets Beach has excellent surf and Summerleaze Beach has colourful beach huts and rockpools to explore.

The 19th century Bude Castle offers a history museum, art gallery & cafe and is also a popular venue for weddings, while the magnificent South West Coast Path runs right through the town, which walkers can join to explore the coastline in either direction.

Head north along the Hartland Cornwall Heritage Coast to find unspoiled, cliff-backed beaches, and continue towards Devon and the picturesque harbour village of Clovelly, with its museums, RNLI Lifeboat Museum, stunning waterfall, idyllic harbour and family-friendly beach.

Head south along the coastal path towards Pentire Point, passing Boscastle's Pentargon Waterfall, The Museum of Witchcraft and Magic, the National Trust's Rocky Valley, St Nectan's Glen nature reserve and dramatic waterfall, towards Tintagel's legendary castle, which was the birthplace of King Arthur, as well as Merlin's Cave and the National Trust's Glebe Cliff.

Columbine Cottage is a fantastic base from which to explore North Cornwall's stunning coastline.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location


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.

Note: Pool is 40’ x 12’ x 4’ deep
