About Martin Reay
My wife and I are teachers and rent our home out during the summer holidays. We have a young family and hope our family home fills your holiday with as many happy memories as it has done for us.
Martin Reay purchased this House in 2006
Why Martin Reay chose Bude
We moved to Bude when my wife secured her first teaching post. I then secured my post locally and we have never looked back. We adore the stunning location that North Cornwall offers with its wild rugged coastline interspersed with beautiful beaches. As two keen surfers we always new we wanted to find a home where we could get our wetsuits on in the garden and walk down to the beach for a surf. With this house we had found the perfect location. Bude does not boast the wild night spots that some over commercialised parts of Cornwall offer, but instead prides itself with its rustic charm and relaxed vibe that gets into your heart and soul and brings you back again and again. We now have two young boys and feel we are in the most perfect location to bring them up in.
What makes this House unique
If you are looking to just turn up at a beautiful seaside town and unwind then this is just the perfect location. Hang up your car keys, forget about the work you left behind, have breakfast on the deck in the morning sun, spend all day in the invigorating Atlantic ocean or explore the footpaths and trails around the town. Then wander back down to the beach with a bottle of wine and a couple of glasses and watch the sun set after a truly spectacular day only to start it all again the next day. Days will blur and you will leave feeling refreshed and rested with salt in your veins.

Amazing property in bude - highly recommended
We have just had an amazing stay at this property as 4 adults and 2 children. There was plenty of space and it was a beautiful, fully equipped house that had everything we needed and more. We were able to walk to the beach in our wetsuits with our bodyboards and the warm outside shower was great for when we returned.
The garden was so sunny for relaxing in whilst the kids played and the bifold doors from the kitchen to the garden were great too as we enjoyed some lovely weather.
We were also pleased that we could access our amazon and netflix accounts on the main TV and that there was also more than one sitting room so we didn't have to all watch the same programme!
We spent the week there and apart from 1 trip out we kept the car parked and explored bude each day as there is so much to do.
We were all very impressed with the property and hope to return again next year. I would highly recommend a stay here.
Thanks Joy for your fantastic review. The outdoor shower is also by favourite parts of the house after a great surf. Hope to have you all in our house again best year.
Beautiful Bude made better with a fantastic property.
Great hosts, spacious, tidy and clean family home. Good WiFi and sound system. Well equipped for the larger family. Perfect location and easy walk to town and the beaches. With 4 boys aged 8-18 it catered for everything we needed. Thank you for a wonderful week!
Thanks Gemma for your kind words. We are so glad all your boys enjoyed their stay. The house allows you all to spread out and enjoy your own space. We hope to have you stay with us in the future.
Fab, spacious, modern, practical holiday home!
Great proximity to Crooklets beach, wore our wet suits to the beach which was a first for us. Close walking distance to all other amenities too. Loved the house, great size rooms, all the facilities you need even an outside shower! It accommodated our 2 families perfectly. This house was a great find and you won't be disappointed.
Thanks Liza for your lovely review. I am glad you enjoyed the new outside shower. It’s great to wash off after a great surf. The house accommodates two families well because of the two separate living rooms. Hope you can return to stay in the future.
