A big thank you to Nick who sorted out everything for us and popped round to check all was well  what a nice man. A big thank you to the housekeeping  the house was spick and spam and smelt clean and fresh. Jones

This is our second visit at New Year to this wonderful location and one that we hope to repeat. On New Years Day we walked from Bude to Boscastle (an early start is needed)  not for the feint-hearted at this time of year. Whether you walk or drive, The Wellington at Boscastle will give you a warm welcome, good beer and an excellent value meal. PS we did get a lift home The house is like a home from home. Turnbull/Davis

A glorious week in sunny  yes, sunny Cornwall. Amazing walks, great food, good beer and so nice to be in a totally dog-friendly environment. Brilliant beaches, especially in the sunshine, and the superb accommodation really made our stay special. Thank you guys Loz and Andrew

We have had a fantastic week staying in this fabulous house  the most comfortable and well equipped holiday home we have stayed in. The house worked so well for us as a family as every little detail has been so well thought through  ie the Sky TV and play equipment in the garden. The weather has been fantastic so have enjoyed lots of relaxing time on the beaches. We have eaten out in the Olive Tree and Lifes a Beach (twice) and enjoyed fajitas and Cornish pasties sitting out on the decking  all lovely Our boys (10 and 8) have really enjoyed themselves here in Bude and are very sorry that it is their last day. Thank you so much. The OSullivan family

Thank you for letting us borrow your house for a lovely week in Bude. The house is wonderful but the beds are too comfortable  we had trouble getting out of them We did all the usual things and some coasteering and visited Tamar Lakes for a walk and bike ride. Bude Bike Hire delivered bikes for us and were really helpful. Fantastic week. Allens

Rock House is a spacious and contemporary house situated within a short walk of the beaches and coastal path and the centre of Bude town and is perfect for those looking for a great place to have a family holiday in north Cornwall. A fantastic newly built self catering accommodation in a quiet residential area of Bude but only five minutes' flat walk to the beach at Crooklets Bay.

This is a modern family home for up to eight people. Enjoy preparing meals to delight the family in the incredibly spacious and well equipped kitchen. With Neff appliances throughout, the kitchen is a cook's dream and there is plenty of space for everyone to sit round the family table.

There are four luxury bedrooms with two bathroom/shower rooms (one en-suite), and a large sized kitchen/diner with adjoining sitting room leading to the patio and secure garden. There is a completely separate snug which has a television, Playstation and various board games to keep everyone entertained and provides plenty of space to spread out; sit and enjoy the peace and quiet and read that book you don't have time to read at home. The house has been built to a very high standard by a highly sought after local builder. With bright, airy rooms and plenty of space both in the living areas and sleeping areas, this is a contemporary house tastefully decorated and furnished by the owners.

There is storage space for wetsuits, surf boards and all your beach gear and the owners have even provided a lovely wooden hand-cart for loading up all your bits and bobs for a visit to Crooklets Bay - a very easy five minute walk. So close that if you have forgotten something, or want to pop home for a quick bite to eat or make up a picnic, then you will be able to do just that. Park your car on the drive for the whole of your stay and leave the keys in the house until you, sadly, have to drive home. A really lovely self catering accommodation in Bude that provides so much and, if you are visiting in the cooler months, there is a fabulous woodburner which makes a great focal point in the evenings.

"Hi Nick - Just wanted to let you know that we had the most fantastic time at Upton House last week. It is truly a beautiful house and all my friends fell in love with it just like I did!! Everyone commented that the beds and quilts were amazing!!! The house was so clean and tidy when we arrived and it certainly had everything that we needed (thanks for the welcome pack, that was great!) It really was an amazing place to celebrate the big 40!! We can't wait to come back ...!!!"
