Little Penn Bude

£373 - £869 per week

This lovely, cosy cottage has lots of character and is very pretty and tastefully decorated creating a family-friendly holiday home. With plenty of living space, including a snug family room and an open plan kitchen/dining and sitting area, it lends itself to a relaxing family haven. The good sized bedrooms provide a comfortable and restful night's sleep. Hollabury Road resides in a lovely quiet area of Bude, ideally placed to enjoy the beaches but also a sanctuary to escape from the busy town. Snuggle up beside the woodburner after a day on the beach swimming and surfing, or just relax in the garden in one of the quiet corners specially created for a perfect sanctuary to relax and unwind.

Within a ten minute walk is Crooklets Beach, with two beach cafes it's a great breakfast destination. The South West Coastal path can easily be accessed for an amble towards Northcott Mouth another popular beach or venture further to the National Trust coves of Sandymouth and Duckpool. In the other direction along the coastal path is Bude Sea Pool or beyond to Summerleaze another popular sandy beach. Bude town is under a mile from the property so you may like to leave your car behind and explore the interesting shops, bistros and eateries. Just let your day evolve, this location will not fail you for providing an excellent base and retreat whilst enjoying this beautiful area of North Cornwall. Little Penn was built at the end of Queen Victoria's reign as a workmans cottage for the local estate Broomhill Manor.

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 welcomed from October to Easter only. 

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 welcomed on leads from May to September and off the lead any time after this!

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, pretty cottage. Was perfect size for our family.

Little Penn is a great holiday cottage in a quiet location. We had a fabulous holiday there and the accommodation was clean and comfortable, with good facilities. The cottage is a short walk away from the beach and town (use the public footpaths across the golf course) so we hardly used the car.

Jul 2019

Had a fantastic week at Little Penn. House was perfect for us, comfortable and well equipped. Walking distance to the town and shops with our daughter in the pram. Bude and surrounding area has loads to offer for a great family holiday. Coastal walks, lovely beaches, nice pasties and tea rooms! Weather was amazing all week which helped too. Next year we might stay in a different location to explore that area but would use Aspects again.

Jul 2019

Little Penn is a charming little cottage well located and with great amenities. The kids toys and board games were a lovely touch. Do enquire about the public right of way access which goes through the back garden to ensure you’re comfortable with this depending on the age of your children as we had very young children and therefore this was an issue and impacted privacy. Parking can also be a challenge at times. Overall though a nice place for a Bude break.

Thanks for taking the time to send in your feedback about your stay at Little Penn; it certainly is a charming little place, and whilst the public right of way in the back garden certainly isn't in constant use, there is a chance that you may occasionally see someone strolling along it. There are gates either side to help keep it as private as possible. We are sorry if this had caused you some concern while you were here. Parking is on street and on a first come first served basis, so you may on occasion have a little bit more of a walk to the car, but often you can find a spot within 100 yards of the property. There may be times that it gets a little busier and more challenging to find a space, and we are sorry to hear that may have been the case on this occasion. Tanya, Customer Services

We had a wonderful week in Little Penn. The cottage is well equipped and in a quiet part of Bude but within easy walking distance to the beaches and town centre.

Sep 2018

Beautiful and well equipped house which sadly didn't have an allocated parking spot but this didn't cause any major issues as we always got to park near the house. During our stay of two weeks we only had to park the car on the next street once. Would highly recommend and would love to stay again

Jul 2018

Little Pen is a very comfortable and tasteful cottage and we enjoyed our stay there very much.

Jul 2018

This is a spacious home and comfortable. It is a long way from the main holiday area of Bude making it more a base for exploring the area with a car and eating in at night. For us we prefer to be more in the centre of things and able to walk everywhere, so perhaps just not for us.

Thank you for your comments. We are delighted to hear how much you liked the property, though a shame that the location wasn't more suitable for you. Please do not hesitate to get in contact with us if you are ever wanting to return to the area, as we would be very happy to search for and discuss alternative properties that would be in a more suitable location for your party. Great to hear how nice it is for those that would prefer to be out of the hustle and bustle a little more though! Thanks again. Tanya, Customer Services

This is a lovely property, we had a fantastic week there and really felt at home. Bude town centre is not far and if you don't mind walking the two beautiful beach are within easy reach. (5 mins by car and lots of pay and display car parks). The cottage is clean, well equipped and has the advantage of two separate sitting areas as well as a lovely garden.
