Our stay at the Fern was perfect. We came as 2 couples and loved the amount of space and felt very comfortable here. We had fun playing pool and found everything we needed in the kitchen. Also appreciated the recycling system. The place is spacious, well decorated and was festively decorated for Christmas! It was about a 20 minute drive to the sea, shops and restaurants, but it was lovely being in a peaceful location. A great place to come home to after a swim or a surf and we had enough to entertain ourselves with at the house. I would definitely recommend.

December 2021

An amazing house, very comfortable lovely and warm. The kitchen was equipped with everything you could possibly need. The views over to the sea are beautiful. A fabulous coast line to walk along. The owners were very helpful and friendly giving us ideas of where to visit that they had enjoyed. We have already booked again for 2022.

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.

Lovely home from home, plenty of space with lovely views. Spotlessly clean and cosy. The welcome tray was much appreciated with Halloween treats and scones! With two teenagers it was useful to have two shower rooms and their own tv in the bedroom. my son loved the pool table and got quite good at it by the end of the week!

The Fern was a little difficult to find at first due to the narrow lanes but the views obtained from being so isolated were incredibly. Highly recommend to all my family and friends, brilliant for what I wanted from my holiday.

Beautiful property, with amazing views. Clean, well finished and had everything we needed for a lovely stay. We didn’t use the master bedroom as it didn’t have a window, but second bedroom was lovely and comfortable. Very quiet, a really beautiful retreat and large area to walk the dogs. Just be aware that the garden isn’t fenced in and merges into a field so we kept our dogs on a lead. I would recommend and would visit again.

This is a A++ accommodation. It exceeded all my families expectations, from the welcome pack for us (Scones cream and Jam, fresh bottle of milk, crisps and more) and the welcome pack for my dog (treats, poo bags, dog towel, toy and water and feeding Bowles). Everywhere was spotlessly clean and very well sized, bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen dining and lounge area. The weather wasn't great which made the utility room very handy, washing clothes in the washing machine after a muddy day out walking. Everything was modern, brand new and there wasn't a kitchen utensil you went wanting for, you wanted for nothing. The view from the lounge area and well furnished patio was absolutely stunning, it led out on to a huge garden area that my dog adored. The owners of The Ferns are perfect hosts, there when you need them and always happy to help in what ever way they can. I will not hesitate to stay here again and recommend it to all family and friends.

We had a lovely week staying at The Fern. The view from the property was amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed the very spacious feel of the property and the tasteful decor and furnishings. The kitchen was very well equipped and we had fun playing Pool.

This is a great house for a family! Clean and spacious and has everything you need on site. Great country views!

Absolutely fabulous stay, so peaceful xx

We loved our week at the Fern. The accommodation was very equipped, clean and comfortable and had stunning views across the countryside. Would definitely recommend as a base for exploring North Cornwall.
