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

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.

"Hi Nick Apologies I meant to drop you a note earlier than this however here goes.. I just wanted to say thank you for the weeks let on the By the Beach property. We had a great time and my wife loved the accommodation. There was a far higher standard of fit out then we expected with every known utensil and appliance known to man or woman available, all in brand new condition and ready for use. The cottage was very roomy and comfortable and we spent every evening in enjoying ourselves. One small note was the intermittent wifi, not sure what was up but it wasn't working all the time or too well. Hearing the sea every morning and watching the amazing sunsets was superb and we left with many happy memories. If we are booking Cornwall again I am sure we will be in touch. From my personal perspective the holiday has been easy to book, thoroughly enjoyable and exceeded our expectations throughout. This was from the time I first spoke with you right through to the time we arrived back home, replete and relaxed in the best possible way. Many thanks Kind regards John Allan"
