Stone's Throw - Bude, North Cornwall, England - Sleeps 8

Stone's Throw

A seaside family home from home just a three minute walk away from Crooklets Beach, Bude and the glorious North Cornwall coastline.
Welcome to our 'living the dream' home. We moved to Bude ten years ago to enjoy a slower pace of life and spend more quality time outdoors with our children. We all still love living here and are sure you will enjoy 'borrowing' our seaside home which is perfect for a fun filled holiday with plenty of space to bring friends or family. Everything is an easy walk away - beaches, shops, cafes and pubs. In fact you really won't need to use a car unless of course you want to see more of Cornwall or Devon.

Bude was voted Best UK Coastal Resort - Gold Award in the British Travel Awards 2015 and according to BBC Weather, Bude was officially the sunniest place in the UK during the summmer of 2013 - it is easy to see why when you visit! Where the country meets the coast, this unspoilt small seaside resort offers a variety of attractions, adventure parks and activities to enjoy whether you are seeking a relaxing short break or a longer family holiday. There are plenty of wonderful walks along the river, canal or coastal path (just three minutes from the cliffs and South West Coastal Path), along with excellent golf, fishing, cycling, bird watching and horse riding. For the small ones Bude Sea pool provides safe swimming with lifeguards.

Other nearby attractions include Clovelly, Lundy Island, Eden Project, Tintagel, Boscastle and Bodmin Moor all within a forty five minute drive away.

Offering some of the UK's best surfing beaches, a beautiful heritage coastline to explore, plenty of independent shops for provisions, friendly pubs and festivals/events throughout the year, Bude offers all the right ingredients for a wonderful break or holiday by the sea.
