Old Manse, Bude in North Cornwall

We had a lovely holiday at the Old Manse house! The kitchen was fabulous having everything we could imagine. I highly recommend Tinatgel Castle – stunning views. We ate at Life’s a Beach which was delicious! The house was large enough to accommodate two families and the extra TV room was a bonus. Too many positives to list. Mike, Laura, William and Claire

Thank you for a lovely stay. The Old Manse is a home from home with all the comforts you could wish for. The house is beautifully equipped, fabulous kitchen, comfy beds, soft towels, old world charm with all mod cons! Noreen, Elaine and Nigel

Wonderful, relaxing break in Bude again! Old Manse is a great house, convenient location and excellently appointed. We spent the week walking, eating and forgetting about work. We recommend eating at Preston Gate Inn for good pub grub and taking a trip to Padstow and Harlyn Bay – amazing white sand and clear waters. We shall be back very soon. Thanks Nick, superb as always. James, Esther and little Oliver

Thank you for our family stay in the Old Manse. Lovely house, very comfortable beds – and I am the Princess with the pea when it comes to that – great kitchen to cook in, loved the cooker. Shower was fab. Weather fantastic, great house to stay in – would love to come back. Brooks family

Thanks for a great week at The Old Manse. The house was beautiful and had everything we needed and we were really comfortable. Our dog really enjoyed her 1st holiday too. We loved Bude – a fab place and weather good too. The Gates family

A truly wonderful house, a real home from home feel and beautiful décor throughout. Weather has been lovely and the sea almost felt you were abroad!!! The beach hut is a true gem and just a perfect holiday to be had. We will definitely return again. Purvis family

We all had a brilliant time on our Easter break in Bude! Our favourite part of the holiday was the amazing beach hut. When we went swimming in the sea pool it was great to know a cosy hut very close by! We really want to come again! Wonderful week – fantastic house – thank you! Davies and Nicholls families.

Thank you so much for a restorative time by the sea in the house that oozes you – your kindness, warmth and generosity! I love cooking in that kitchen, thank you! Roz, Mac and Gordon

What an amazing week we have had. All fallen in love with The Old Manse. Weather fantastic too! Nick was so helpful, sorting out everything for us – all was just perfect! Breakfast outside is highly recommended to all. Thank you so much. We’ll be back! Severs-Marshall families

Had a great week! The weather got better and better as the week went on – we may have even got a tan. The sea pool entertained all the kids for hours. We all loved spending time at the beach hut! It has a great view and comfy deck chairs. Best pasties were at Pengennas!!! Had a very comfortable stay and loved the ice machine in the kitchen. Loudon and Chunn families

Fantastic house with everything we needed for our extended family. Beach hut was perfect as the children were in the sea pool every day. Great base for the town, beaches, pitch and putt and shops. The Milky Way was great for the children and three of us enjoyed a delightful trip to Hartland Quay’s rugged coastline. Extraordinary scenery and well worth a visit. 10/10 would recommend the Old Manse for a holiday base. Thank you! Steve, Kathie, Joe and family

Step through the front door of The Old Manse and immediately be charmed by the warmth and welcome generated by this fabulous holiday home near Bude. Adjacent to Flexbury Church and directly opposite the Bude and North Cornwall golf course, The Old Manse oozes charm and tranquillity along with truly exquisite décor. With many original features, including the stunning Victorian tiled entrance hall and original cast iron fireplaces with original tiles, this house simply demands that you relax and embrace its warmth and sophistication.

With five bedrooms offering exceptional comfort for nine guests, the bedrooms are beautifully furnished and homely. The spacious holiday home has three super- kings (which are suitable for changing into singles if required) with a further double room and single room so there is versatility for whichever sleeping arrangements suits guests.

The drawing room has comfy seating and offers and open fireplace for those chilly winter evenings and has Sky, Blu-Ray player and large flat screen television and views over the golf course. A fully equipped kitchen leads to the dining room with woodburning stove and has a warm and welcoming ambiance – sit around the dining table and sample some of the fabulous local produce that the West Country provides. There is also a separate children’s room with DVD player and PlayStation – let the children entertain themselves whilst you sit and relax in the sumptuous elegance of the cosy drawing room.

A courtyard dining area, with lighting, creates a wonderful Mediterranean feel and there is a small garden for simply sitting and relaxing. A short stroll to the beach or into town, where there is a good selection of restaurants and shops, puts The Old Manse in a superb position be it for a beach holiday, golf or sightseeing. A stay at the house includes the private use of a beach hut at the nearby Bude Sea Pool. The pool nestles under the cliffs on the north Cornwall coast and is topped up twice a day by the waves of the Atlantic. On a summer’s day the sprawling, sparkling expanse of the Sea Pool offers a blissful opportunity to escape from modern life and to laze, splash or bathe in calm sea water. It is a rare construction: partially man-made and in harmony with the natural environment. Bude Sea Pool provides a precious opportunity to enjoy a unique experience, close to the ferocity of the natural environment but sheltered from its extreme effects.

A beautiful holiday home, lovingly refurbished and furnished by the owners, offering a perfect house for enjoying a peaceful and relaxing holiday in Bude; you will be enchanted.
