About The Carthouse

Budds Barns offers three holiday cottages that can accommodate parties of two to four guests or up to ten if hired together. Constructed of stone and cob typical to the area, under a slate roof, the farmhouse, along with its barns and are centred around the traditional yard, in this delightful tranquil location of North cornwall.

No longer a working farm, the redundant buildings have been sympathetically converted into holiday accommodation by local craftsmen. Budds Barns is not only well located to easily access the delightful seaside town of Bude but it is also an ideal location to relax and unwind in a peaceful tranquil setting.

The village of Titson is just under two miles south of Marhamchurch and offers an excellent pub which serves good meals. Three miles away is Widemouth Bay with its beautiful sandy beach providing the perfect place to relax, surf, swim or explore the rock pools.

Budds Barns are ideally located for exploring some the finest attractions that both North Cornwall and Devon have to offer. Bude is only five miles away and offers a swimming pool, golf course, leisure centre, the historic Bude Canal, a selection of shops and places to eat and its own excellent beaches which are popular for surfing.

For those wanting to travel a little further afield, Padstow, Boscastle, Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks are within easy reach and the South West Coastal Path, the Tarka and Camel Trails and the National Cycle Route are all accessible.
