This beautifully contemporary property has been built to high sustainability standards yet draws inspiration from the existing Victorian houses and quaint beach huts found in the local area.

The property is a short walk from a selection of amenities including a golf course, leisure centre and swimming pool, tennis courts, numerous shops, galleries and a selection of beautiful sandy beaches. The South West Coast Path also offers spectacular walking in either direction, and the wetland bird sanctuary and nature reserve some lovely scenery. With the town being conveniently located beside the A39, this is a great location for touring both Devon and Cornwall, and days out could include visits to The Eden Project, the delightful fishing villages of Clovelly, Boscastle, Rock and Padstow, Bodmin Moor, and numerous National Trust properties and gardens.

The property is entered via the second floor and accessed via four steps from the parking area. From here you step into a beautifully light and contemporary living space with the first area being the lounge. This cosy space offers a Smart TV and wood burner, and then another step takes you up to the kitchen/dining area, and from the dining table a low profile window allows you to look out and across to the sea. The kitchen is well-equipped and has a useful breakfast bar, electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. From the kitchen, sliding doors allow you to access a large balcony with seating, BBQ and sea views. The final room on this floor is an additional WC by the front door. From this floor a flight of stairs takes you down to the first floor and here you will find a spacious master super-king-size bedroom with Smart TV, dressing area, en-suite bathroom with shower over bath and WC, and French doors to an enclosed balcony with seating. Also on this level you will find a twin bedroom with en-suite shower room with WC. There is a small storage room on this floor, perfect for tidying away empty suitcases. Another flight of stairs then takes you down to the ground floor, and here you will find another two bedrooms, a super-king-size with Smart TV, en-suite wet room and WC, and French doors to small enclosed garden area, and another twin bedroom with en-suite shower room with WC. A washer/dryer is conveniently located in the ground floor utility room, and from here a door takes you to the rear of the property where a lockable wetsuit facility is provided with outdoor shower. It is also possible to access this area without walking through the property and instead using the shared rear steps.

Heading outside from the ground floor there is a small enclosed garden area with artificial grass and deck chairs. Private off-road parking for one car is provided directly outside the property, and additional roadside parking can be found nearby.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £250 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

This property is in a great location overlooking the sea and the golf course and in close proximity to a local pub, supermarket and Bude town. Great walks and an excellent base for Cornwall and Devon.

A really enjoyable week at The Light House. The location is fantastic. A few minutes stroll to Crooklets beach and an easy walk around the headland to the main part of Bude. The house is over three floors and has large spacious bedrooms and a great open plan living room/kitchen. (Kitchen didn't have a microwave).

The location is amazing. To wake up and see and hear the sea, listen to the birds and watch the golfers play is just great. However the accommodation needs a major overhaul. Its looking and feeling very much in need of some work. Bedding and towels need to be replaced. Not enough equipment in the kitchen for everyone. Also a welcome pack of milk anRead mored tea/coffee would be nice. Its not a cheap property and I expected better. Will not stay there again. Hide

Very comfortable and roomy. Excellent location especially if you have dogs. Easy walking distance to beach and walks. So close to Supermarket as well. Good provision of kitchen ware so no difficulties at meal times. We had two dogs and two families who comfortably shared the space. Good internet connection for own Netflix logon. Great tv size and aRead more small log fire for cooler evenings. Home from home experience for us. Hide

Paying for great location. House spacious with plenty of wardrobe space. Surf and body boards were available for guests to use. However, no 'welcome' pack, which was disappointing and unusual. No microwave. Unfortunately house in need of some repair. x2 toilets' not flushing, leak in double bedroom ceiling when rained. Artificial grass was stained Read morewith dog crap. both sun lounger and hammock broken. Bedroom white curtains were stained. Good stay but disappointed with lack of maintenance. Hide

Wow! What an amazing house in an amazing location! Well equipped, comfortable beds & a great living space.

The cottage is in a perfect position, just away from the town of Bude, but just a walk away from the town, beach and local places of interest. Didn't use the car once.

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Eastbourne is a bustling seaside resort on the south coast of England. It has been a popular British holiday destination since Victorian times. The town’s attractive pier and promenade is still a major draw for visitors in search of a traditional seaside experience – you can enjoy a long, level stroll along the sea front whilst enjoying an ice cream or some fish and chips. The pebble beach is a good place to park a deckchair and take in the sun, or paddle in the sea. Great for family breaks and as a romantic getaway, the town has much to offer all visitors. The South Downs Way starts in town and extends 100 miles eastwards to Winchester – one of the first stops on the National Trail are the imposing chalk cliffs of the iconic Beachy Head, a few miles to the east of town. Eastbourne is a big hit with train enthusiasts as it’s home to the Spa Valley Railway and the Miniature Steam Railway. Historians may like Redoubt Fort and The Observatory Science Museum (in nearby Herstmonceux). For all-weather attractions for children why not investigate Fort Fun or the indoor Motcombe Swimming Pool? Further afield, and within a one-hour drive to the west is Brighton, with its own pier, wonderful array of shops and eateries. To the west is Bexhill-on-Sea with its impressive art gallery, the De La Warr Pavillion, and long seafront. Just beyond is the old fishing town of Hastings with its new award-winning designer pier, ancient castle and fishing shanty town.
