We had a great welcome to Helebridge House and really enjoyed our week. Access to the canal is right by the house and we enjoyed watching the resident kingfishers from the windows!

The house was toasty warm and had everything we needed The owners were really helpful but we didn’t see them otherwise.

You can get to the village (Marhamchurch) by following the canal away from Bude, so avoiding traffic on the road, and there are lots of footpaths close by to explore.

We went in October but it would be fantastic during the summer as it was a little too cold to use the outdoor space.

Would highly recommend.

October 2020

Friendly and welcoming owners who greeted us on arrival. Immaculately clean. Lovely big, comfortable beds. Perfect location for exploring all the stunning coves and surf beaches near by. Lovely, gentle walk into Bude along the canal where great pasties, ice creams and fish&chips can be found. Nice local pub for perfect pint or g&t. Thank you, we had a lovely holiday.

Beaches in Bude

Fancy a sneak preview? View our Bude webcam here>

Crooklets Beach

At low tide, a large expanse of golden sand is exposed, along with rocky outcrops which are great for rock pooling. The beach can be reached by a short walk over Summerleaze Down or down the hill from the town centre. Crooklets is very popular with surfers, but also perfect for families, with great facilities including a large car park, beach café, skate park, showers, and pubs close by. Dogs are welcome on this beach except between 15th May and 30 September, 10am to 6pm when a seasonal dog ban is in place.

Summerleaze Beach

Boasting the iconic Sea Pool, and only a five minute walk from the centre of Bude, Summerleaze Beach is Bude’s central hub of sand, surf and sun. It’s the first port of call for many visitors. Clean, safe and easy on the eye, Summerleaze Beach is a big hit with surfers, sun-bathers and families. However, it is the sheer variety of activities that mark Summerleaze as arguably one of the best beaches in Cornwall for outdoor pursuits and water sports. Dogs are welcome but must be on leads from 21st May to 30th September from 10am-6pm.

Widemouth Bay Beach

Stretching across one and a half miles of golden sands, Widemouth Bay is divided into two halves, the North beach and the South beach, separated by a natural barrier of rock known as Black Rock. As the tide retreats, amazing rock formations are exposed - perfect for rock-pooling!

Northcott Mouth Beach

Three miles North of Bude, is the small rocky beach Northcott Mouth, owmed by the National Trust. As the tide drops, the beach opens up to expansive sand with rock pools dotted all around - perfect for exploring. Dogs welcomed all year round. 

Sandymouth Beach

Four miles North of Bude is the National Trust beach, Sandymouth. Backed by sweeping cliffs, this large sandy beach is popular all year round, especially with dog owners as it welcomes dogs year round.

Lovely, gentle walk into Bude along the canal where great pasties, ice creams and fish&chips can be found. Nice local pub for perfect pint or g&t. Thank you, we had a lovely holiday.

We loved Helebridge House and the location was idyllic . The position on the tow path along the canal was a real bonus and made for lovely evening walks and in fact actually led to Bude beach approx 2 miles away . Very neat and clean throughout with every facility. The owners met us an arrival and were charming. Over all we had a lovely holiday.. We have booked again .

Had a lovely stay. House was spotless. Very spacious and a good sized garden. We took our dogs and made the most of all the lovely walks on the doorstep. Beautiful walk into Bude along the canal path. Weir cafe and Bank at Bude, are recommended. You can walk to these without having to cross any busy roads .

We loved our stay at Helebridge House. Very spacious! Lovely garden with a BBQ available. Great for kids to run around in. Landlords live next door so if anything was to go wrong they are always available and very friendly. Wish we stayed longer! Would def reccomend this place.

We had a lovely stay at Helebridge House. Lovely location by the canal. Beautiful walks to Widemouth bay and Bude. The house was spotlessly clean when we arrived, well equipped with everything we needed for our holiday. We very much appreciated the welcome hamper filled with tea, coffee, scones and clotted cream! The local beaches were very busy as expected but the kids absolutely loved the Cornwall waves! Great holiday and lovely memories!

Lovely, well-equipped house in a great location. Owners welcoming and friendly but unobtrusive. Despite the weather, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Lovely house that was spacious and easily fitted 4 couples 2 dogs and 3 children. Beautiful kitchen and dining area. Very helpful owners close by in case you need anything. Walking distance to Bude town along the canal which was pleasant.

Beautiful house in a nice location not far from Bude. Friendly, welcoming hosts live next door. Plenty of space for our large family group of 12. Also happy to find kitchen and dining equipment geared up for such a large group too as this is often lacking in large properties. Excellent disabled facilities perfect for our needs too. An amazing welcome hamper provided too! Only downside was the house was a little cold at times and the car park is quite tight if you have multiple vehicles. None of this would stop us returning though, we hope to be back!

We had a lovely relaxing stay at Helebridge House. We were a small party with a dog and found the peaceful location great for walks from the door along the canal into Bude and across to Widemouth Bay. The spacious bedrooms, beds and bed linen were extremely comfortable. There were squishy sofas in the lounge to relax in though this may be a bit cramped if you are the full number of guests. Well equipped kitchen and laundry facilities. Gated and enclosed grassed area. Patio/decking area outside kitchen not fully enclosed but not overlooked and quiet. The house has great facilities for those with impaired mobility too. Owner next door very helpful and friendly. Visit The Bank, The Deck, Life's A Beach and close by The Weir for great food. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Helebridge House. The house is in a great location at the end of the Bude canal path. There is off road parking for up to 4 cars. The house was immaculately presented when we arrived and the generous welcome hamper was much appreciated. Definitely the best holiday accommodation we have stayed in.

Amazing house with excellent facilities. We were very impressed with how clean it was and how comfortable the beds were. The welcome pack was way beyond our expectations and even included everything we needed to make our own cream teas! Highly recommend the lovely walk along the canal to the town/beach. The owners were very friendly and helpful during our stay and the use of the mobility scooter for the week was a real bonus. We would definitely book to come back again in the future -probably one of the nicest holiday houses we have stayed in!

Just returned from a great family holiday at Helebridge House. There was 11 of us staying ranging in age from 3 to 60’s. House facilities were really good and the local area is great. Well worth a visit and would recommended the accommodation.

Had a lovely family holiday in a luxurious house. Great location on the canal. Very peaceful. Enjoyed spotting the wildlife.

Location of Helebridge House is great for walkers of all abilities with easy access to either the Coastal Path or the Canal Paths. Very peaceful location. Having a room especially for those with Mobility problems was a huge bonus for our party. The bedrooms are all a good size and very comfortable.

Super, everything was so welcoming The owner welcomed us and gave us lots of good information on pubs and coast walks Any time with pleasure again Thanks for offering such nice places.

Beautiful house in a great location, only a few minutes drive (or half hour walk along the canal path) to Bude and a choice of lovely beaches. Great welcome from the very friendly owners, even though we were rather early! The house was extremely well equipped and most importantly spotlessly clean. The bedrooms were very spacious and comfortable and the kitchen was a great size for socialising. Helebridge House easily accommodated our large family of varying ages from 6 months to 80 years and everything in between! Would definitely recommend and hope to return, one of the nicest holiday homes we’ve stayed in.

We had a fantastic time at Helebridge. The house was very clean and spacious for our family of 12 including a baby. The beds were so comfortable and big!! It had everything we needed for an enjoyable and relaxing time. We loved the kitchen as it was very modern and spacious and good for socialising as you cook! Glad of the high chair and travel cot too, We will remember that for next time because we will definitely return. We would recommend a lovely walk into Bude along the canal too. The owners were also very friendly and accommodating, thank you for a lovely holiday.
