Bude house description

Step through the front door of The Old Manse and immediately be charmed by the warmth and welcome generated by this fabulous house. Adjacent to Flexbury Church and directly opposite the Bude & North Cornwall golf course, the house oozes charm and tranquillity along with truly exquisite décor. With many original features, including the stunning Victorian tiled entrance hall and original cast iron fireplaces with original tiles, this house simply demands that you relax and embrace its warmth and sophistication.
With four bedrooms offering exceptional comfort for eight guests and a single room with full size bed, the bedrooms are beautifully furnished and homely. The house has three super-kings (which are suitable for changing into singles if required) with a further double room so there is versatility for whichever sleeping arrangements suits guests. The drawing room has comfy seating and offers and open fireplace for those chilly winter evenings and has Sky, Blu-Ray player and large flat screen television and views over the golf course. A fully equipped kitchen leads to the dining room with woodburning stove and has a warm and welcoming ambiance – sit around the dining table and sample some of the fabulous local produce that the West Country provides. There is also a separate children’s room with DVD player and PlayStation – let the children entertain themselves whilst you sit and relax in the sumptuous elegance of the cosy drawing room.
A courtyard dining area, with lighting, creates a wonderful Mediterranean feel and there is a small grassed garden for simply sitting and relaxing. A short stroll to the beach or into town, where there is a good selection of restaurants and shops, puts The Old Manse in a superb position be it for a beach holiday, golf or sightseeing.
A beautiful home, lovingly refurbished and furnished by the owners, offers a perfect house for enjoying a peaceful and relaxing holiday; you will be enchanted.


The house comes with the private use of a beach hut at the Bude Sea Pool.

The Sea Pool at Bude was created in the 1930s to provide a haven for safe swimming for the people of the town and the thousands of people who visit it each year.

The pool nestles under the cliffs on the north Cornwall coast and is topped up twice a day by the waves of the Atlantic. On a summer’s day the sprawling, sparkling expanse of the Sea Pool offers a blissful opportunity to escape from modern life and to laze, splash or bathe in calm sea water. It is a rare kind of construction: partially man-made and in harmony with the natural environment. Bude Sea Pool provides a precious opportunity to enjoy a unique experience, close to the ferocity of the natural environment but sheltered from its extreme effects.

The pool is perfect for youngsters to swim and play in at all times and the beach hut offers fabulous views over the pool and the Atlantic beyond.

                          Car: Not Necessary

                          Bude has everything! As well as the N.T Coastline, its rolling countryside is an area of outstanding natural beauty.

                          Bude has become a centre for all things active, be it a 140 ft abseil down the magnificent cliffs, surfing the Atlantic breakers, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, mountain boarding or sailing.

                          Alternatively, laze the day away on miles of life guarded sandy beaches or bathing in Bude’s famous sea pool. Followed by a cream tea! All this and a host of wet weather attractions are within walking distance or a short drive from the house.

                          Meander from the sea lock along the canal’s flat tow paths, flanked by nature reserves-ideal for bird watchers, walkers, wheelchairs, buggies and bikes.

                          For History lovers, visit Bude Castle Heritage Centre, Stratton Battle ground, picturesque Clovelly harbour, or king Arthurs Tintagel, both within ½ an hour.

                          Plymouth National sea life centre, the Eden project, lost gardens of Heligan, Port Isaac, Padstow and more are all within a day trip.
