Whilst accessed via a flight of internal stairs, the loft is all on one level with a light and airy feel.

Whether it's experimenting in the well equipped kitchen with some local produce or simply relaxing together on the comfy sofa and watching a movie or going back to basics and playing a board game, Links Loft is sure to help you make some great holiday memories. Being dog-friendly too, even Fido can come along! With several beaches (including the popular Summerleaze beach with its salt-water pool) all within either a few minutes' walk or a short drive, you'll be spoilt for choice, and many are dog friendly all year round. Bude has a number of great eateries and shops to suit all tastes and pockets, or if some peace and quiet is what you're after, there are plenty of breath taking coastal walks and quiet spots where you can just sit and watch the world go by.

We had a fabulous holiday at Links Loft. The apartment was excellent - light, airy, spotlessly clean and really well equipped. It had everything we needed - for us and our dog. A perfect location - easy to walk into the centre of Bude with a nice stroll over the golf course. It was ideal for Crooklets beach which we walked down to in the mornings before the dog ban kicked in at 10am. Jude was lovely and made us feel so welcome on arrival. She was very helpful and friendly and made some good recommendations about places to go. Bude is a lovely place - this is our second visit and it was as nice as we remembered. We walked along the canal and did parts of the coast path, after getting maps and chatting to a very nice lady in Tourist Information. We will definitely be using Aspects Holidays again - the booking process was really easy, they kept us well informed and sent us everything we needed ahead of our trip. I would highly recommend Aspects and Links Loft.

The Aspects Holiday staff, whose offices are beneath, were both very helpful and efficient. Parking was free and always available opposite, with easy walks to either the various incredible beaches nearby or Bude itself. There was a local and well-stocked Sainsburys for our shopping needs and the kitchen provided plenty of space for cooking, as Bude itself is not over-endowed with eating places, although we were there at the busiest time in August. Overall a great holiday - thank you Aspects!

Holidays in Bude

Bude is a coastal town in the north of Cornwall, situated at the mouth of the river Neet. There are a number of excellent beaches in and around the town, such as Summerleaze and Crooklets, as well as Widemouth Bay a little further south.

Bude has so much to offer, including a fabulous town with a wide selection of independent shops, cafes and restaurants. In addition, visitors can meander along Bude Canal, or enjoy a gentle cruise in a pedal boat or kayak, observing the beautiful area from a different angle. The town is home to the historic Bude Sea Pool and The Castle Bude, both a must if you are in the area. 

For those who enjoy walking, the South West Coast Path can be easily access from Bude, head south in the direction of Crackington Haven or North towards Morwenstow. You’ll be blown away by the stunning scenery and breathtaking views along the coastline.

With so much on the doorstep, it’s the perfect destination for a holiday by the sea!

Beaches in Bude

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.

Everything was perfect, Great apartment, brilliant location and Jude was extremely welcoming and helpful.

A fabulous apartment that is walking distance to the beaches and the town (great for body boarding and surfing). The apartment is spacious (we were two adults and two teenagers) and it was impeccably maintained. The balcony, although overlooked by windows, is still a brilliant sun trap and is a relaxing place to sit with a glass of wine after a day body-boarding. All beds and bedding were very comfortable and of a high quality. There was a slight noise from the road but nothing to deter from our awesome week in Bude. Bude’s Sea Pool is a must to visit along with Maggie’s coffee van located along the canal near The Falcon Hotel (also great for evening drinks) where you can get a great flat white and an almond croissant. This was our second time in Bude, which is a relatively quiet Cornish beach location.

The accommodation was perfect, the location, places to walk the dog and everything including decor and utensils inside was to a very high standard. There was no clutter just very well thought out items to meet all your needs. With the open ceiling the accommodation felt very airy. I found Aspect Holidays very professional and personable, nothing was too much problem for them. I will definitely be looking to use Aspect again and recommend to friends and certainly wouldn't hesitate to book the Loft again

This was a stop off after spending 4 nights in St Ives, may I add in another lovely property booked through Aspects. The apartment was spacious, spotless, well furnished and comfortable. It had all the equipment needed, including a separate utility room. There were TV's in both bedrooms, I can see that this would be a great property for a family. The town and beaches are within easy walking distance. We were left a Gift Voucher to use in the local Deli shop. On arrival, the coffee machine did not work. By the next morning, Jude and Gareth had replaced it with a new one. They both were very friendly and helpful. A lovely place to stay and would do so again if ever in Bude.

This was our 2nd visit to Links loft and we loved our stay once again. Fabulous apartment, very clean and location is brilliant for some lovely walks and a nice short walk into town. We had a great week.

We really enjoyed our stay at Links Loft. It’s location was fab and the place itself is just what we needed! Would stay here again! Our only recommendation is that the double mattress be replaced.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thanks for your helpful comments. Whilst mattresses can be very subjective; having had a couple of comments on it now, the team checked on it and we are pleased to confirm that it has now been replaced. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Links Loft and hopefully we will see you back here again very soon. Thanks again. Tanya, Customer Services

Had a great stay at Links Loft, perfect location for beach and coastal path. Well equipped, tastefully furnished and the Aspects team in the Bude office (Jude & Gareth) were really friendly and helpful. Lots of choice for places to eat and drink, we enjoyed Life a Beach at Summerleaze beach.

We booked to go back in February before we left!

Links Loft is a lovely holiday flat. I was a little worried when we turned up, but inside was lovely and plenty big enough for a family of 4. My children particularly enjoyed having Netflix on the TV in their bedroom! We didn’t use the outdoor space - it was very overlooked and not that attractive.

The flat is only a short walk away from the town centre, however it is located on a fairly busy road and the noise of the traffic did bother us - for that reason we would look for an alternative property if we visit Bude again the in the future.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are glad to hear that you liked Links Loft; it is a fantastic space and in a great location for exploring Bude and beyond. It was a shame to hear that you found the road a little noisy, as generally it isn't particularly noisy and has not been commented on before, though we have experienced a very busy summer season here in Cornwall, which may explain this. We will keep an eye on that in case we need to highlight it within our website description. The outside space does have neighbouring properties surrounding it, so we try to show this on the photos on the website so that guests will know what to expect from this area. Although you would look to book alternative accommodation next time, it certainly sounds like you still had an enjoyable time here and we hope that you agreed that all of the benefits of this property and the fantastic convenient location far outweighed any of the negatives. Tanya, Customer Services

Our stay at Links Loft was lovely, it’s well equipped and beautifully furnished and was nice chatting to Jude & Gareth from the office. It’s in a great location with shops & beaches a few minutes walk away. Bar 35 is a great little place for a drink or two and we ate at Life’s A Beach by Summerleaze Beach a few times and would recommend. Hopefully we will return to Bude again soon and pretty sure we will book through Aspects.

My two teenage daughters and I had a fantastic week at Links Loft despite the problems of the pandemic. All aspects of the Aspects service were very excellent including the local staff Jude and Gareth who were very helpful in relation to a few small queries we had during I stay. Bude is a lovely place so we'll certainly be looking to come back and would definitely use Aspects for our accommodation when we do.

We could not have asked for a better property or hosts. Links Loft is a gem. We especially want to say a big thank you to the hosts working at Aspects in the Bude office; they were friendly and most helpful- nothing was too much trouble. The location is perfect and we will most certainly be returning.

Wonderful break at Links Loft. Perfect accommodation and great location. Couldn't ask for more.

We had a pleasant holiday in Bude despite the wind & rain. Links Loft was a lot smaller than I had imagined but would suit 2 adults and 2 children. A lovely welcome pack on arrival & generally well equipped, the double bed was not the most comfortable and very low. The roof top terrace is overlooked from all side & I personally wouldn’t like to sit outside but would be ok for children supervised, good distance to Bude town & beaches not to far away.

Great family accommodation in good location

Our second stay in Cornwall with Aspect Holidays, as well as last time, everything was perfect. Bude Loft is a very cozy apartment with everything we need for a pleasant holiday. Everything is spotless, clean and ready for guests. On our arrival we found some basic food for a simple dinner or breakfast. (Thanks, now I'm addicted to clotted cream). The agency's office is right in the house, so if anything is needed, help is within easy reach. The supermarket is not far from the apartment as well as the city center with lots of restaurants and small shops. The most important thing for me - the beach - a few hundred meters away - a pleasant five minute walk. We are always happy to use the perfect Aspect Holidays services. The only thing we regret is that Cornwall is very far away for us. We will be happy to come again. Favorite place for our holidays!

Links Loft is fabulous, location is brilliant not far from the beaches and not far from shops and restaurants. Loved the loft ,beautifully clean and everything you could possibly want, there was a lovely welcome pack there which was great will definitely be going back for another holiday.

We really enjoyed our stay at Links Loft and hope to return in the near future! Very nicely furnished, welcoming and comfortable. The close proximity to both Bude town and the nearby beaches is also a bonus. We would highly recommend Links Loft as a place to stay at.

We stayed at Links Loft over Christmas to meet up with family and friends. We were really pleased with the apartment and the information provided. It's a lovely space, nicely-furnished and well-equipped. The location is good for both town and beach. We would happily stay there again (we have family in the area) and would happily use Aspects again.

We absolutally loved our stay at Links Loft, Bude. The property was beautiful and such a high standard of finish. We felt so welcome on arrival with the gifts, the milk in the fridge was just beyond lovely. Plus the scones etc!!! Thank you so much for providing the best self catering accommodation we have ever stayed in with so many wonderful personal touches. I think the only thing we could say as a tiny negative was the TVs placement on the wall in the longe area is a bit high, it could do with coming down about a foot for a ease of watching. BUT, that’s our preference not a negative. The staff at Aspects handled all our concerns quickly and efficiently, we will absolutely be booking again. In fact we would have book straight away but we are not clear on the Oct holiday dates yet for next year.
