A week at West Holm was just what was needed. The bungalow is in a quiet location, just a few minutes from the beach and SW Coastal path. It is extremely well-equipped with a very nice welcome box of goodies on arrival. Spotlessly clean and comfortably furnished, the bungalow also has a range of DVDs and games (indoor and garden) available if needed. The TV is FreeSat enabled and comes with a basic Netflix and Amazon Prime facility. Wi-Fi proved to be reliable and efficient. A pack of local maps (including up to date Ordnance Survey Landranger and Explorer editions) was really helpful. Someone came, whilst we are out, to cut the grass and clear fallen palm leaves. The property manual contains tips and suggestions on what to see, visit, where to eat etc. Our weather wasn't perfect during our week, but good enough for what we wanted to do - headland walks from Widemouth Bay, Bude, Duckpool and Boscastle, plus walks along the Bude Canal and at Tamar Lakes. All in all, a great place to stay and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others.

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.

Would loved our stay at West Holm such a welcoming and comfortable holiday home, a lot of care and attention in every way had been taken thank you

Lovely relaxing place in a perfect location. Really well equipped and an amazing welcome gift box on arrival, the best we've ever had. We enjoyed our say so much we've booked to go again in October. Would definitely recommend West Holm.

Had a wonderful 5 night stay here as soon as the lockdown restrictions were lifted. Every thing was spotlessly clean and had a wonderful fresh smell which is so nice to arrive in. This place is in an absolutely perfect position, with the Ocean peeping over the hillside at the end of the lane and stunning scenery only minutes from the door. The place itself is modern bright and fresh and full of pretty décor that gave you that holiday feel! The kitchen was a lovely and garden was a perfect sun trap! Visited Bude, Boscastle and Tintagel and had ice creams at the beach every day. Lovely welcome basket as well and card from owner which was very thoughtful and appreciated and set the tone for a brilliant holiday. This was exactly what we needed after the long hard winter lockdown. Even the teenager approved and we know how hard they are to please! We didn't want to leave and we will definitely be back! Thanks to Aspects and the owners for giving us this uplifting holiday that was so much needed!

This is a lovely Bungalow in a prefect location. We have stayed there a few times and just love it.

We stayed at West Holm for a week in September and had a relaxing and enjoyable break. The house is a very short walk from the beach at Widemouth Bay and a 5 mile drive into Bude for the beach, shops and restaurants. West Holm is a fantastic house which can be enjoyed in all weathers. We had very hot days where we used the garden; and wet, windy days where we were cosy and enjoyed being indoors. On a good day try the walk into Bude along the coastal path and then back again along the canal and across fields - 7 miles but a fine walk with plenty of places to stop and eat and drink.

We had a wonderful stay at West Holm with the property exceeding all of our expectations. We couldn’t have asked for more.

We had a wonderful week at West Holm, in a great location minutes from the sea, beautifully decorated, very well laid out and kitted out with everything you could possibly need.

We had a brilliant week - should have stayed two. The house is just right for a couple or family. There were four of us two adults and two teenagers, they put up with sharing for a week. The house has everything you need and is very comfortable especially the beds. Locally the beach is literally a few mins from your door. There is the beach cafe and beach bar in easy walking distance and also a small fresh fish shop which also has basic provisions - bread, milk etc. Just 5-10 mins walk. Bude is about 10mins drive down the coast road and has everything you need shops, cafes, restaurants and takeaways. In these testing times it was great to get away enjoy the beach and fresh air, eat some good food and just relax in a safe and clean environment. Thank you.

Lovely cottage. Very comfortable and a great location. Would definitely recommend it.

We've stayed in a different cottages in Cornwall but this one is really the best. Absolutely loved everything in there. Such a modern and cosy place to stay. Enjoyed having dinner in the garden, so peaceful and relaxing, loved the floor covering bathroom and shower. Amazing! Kids loved to be in there room, beds are comfortable. A big thank you and we'll be back.

A very well equipped and comfortable house with everything one could wish for. Enjoyed sitting out in the peaceful garden and watching the wild life fly by. Also enjoyed strolls and walks along the beach and cliffs at Widemouth Bay and Bude.

West Holm was clean and bright. Very well equipped everything you could need and more and of a good quality, even down to the garden furniture. Lovely touch of welcone basket. Easy walking distance of the beach. Best cottage we have stayed in and would not hesitate to come back and would recommend to friends and family.

This is the best bungalow we have ever stayed in. Very c!ean , very comfortable , every thing you need for a wonderful holiday.. The welcome pack was very much appreciated .would definitely recommend.

Fabulous bungalow and garden, best one so far, will certainly be back

A great place to stay at west holm, only minutes from the beach and a short drive to Bude town.

Very relaxing and plenty of places to visit in the area or just walk along its many trails for breathtaking views and scenery.

Thank you Aspects for a great place to stay and the hamper was a lovely surprise.

The Brown family.

Great situation, loved being able to walk to the beach. Very well equipped, clean and comfortable and the welcome groceries were a nice touch.

The best property we have stayed at, the owners thought of everything and the welcome hamper was exceptional and a lovely surprise the property was imactulatly clean and comfortable.We can't wait to book again later in the year.

Great accommodation - well proportioned, clean, comfortable and very well equipped. Everything worked, including the wi-fi (which is of critical importance to my two sons... .). The location was really good, quiet but very close to the beach and a great cafe. The garden and the large conservatory were lovely, the latter was great when the weather wasn't good. Difficult to find fault in anything.

Really impressed with West Holm. Owners have thought of everything you could possibly need, we had a great time with the garden games. The welcome pack was very generous. Overall a fantastic stay. Thank you!

West Holme is home from home. The best home we have stayed in - in Cornwall so far. Will return without a doubt. Very impressed! Thank you.

Great location. Loved the welcome box of goodies. Excellent decor

First class 5 star bungalow in all respects. Has to be the best rented property we have ever been to. Thoughtful extras are in abundance, especially the welcome hamper with a bottle of wine, coffees, teas, snacks etc.

Lovely property and well placed for the beach Would definitely return again
