About this listing
A gorgeous holiday cottage in the heart of the village of Stratton which adjoins Bude and has two great pubs and a shop, and is only a five minute drive to beaches and the extensive shops, pubs, restaurants and tea rooms in Bude town centre. My place is good for couples, families (with kids), and big groups.
On the ground floor is a large entrance hall with plenty of space for your outdoor gear. From here, the sitting room is simply splendid with sumptuous furnishings and character from a long gone era. There are gorgeous comfy sofas, a sound system, large flat screen TV and DVD player, books galore, games (including a splendid chess set) and beautifully understated décor and lighting that makes you feel instantly at home. Opposite, the dining rooms is equally steeped in tradition with huge slate flagstones, a lovely old oak dining suite, upright piano and an Aga: perfect for evenings gathered around the table for a home cooked meal, wine, warmth and laughter! The kitchen adjoins and we have never seen guests so well provided for with every appliance and utensil imaginable! Oven, hob and extractor, fridge, freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, microwave, breadmaker and lots, lots more! A door leads on out to the garden which is completely enclosed (neighbouring cottages back on) and has a lawn, a cobbled path, a paved patio with a barbecue provided, garden furniture and a brilliant summerhouse. There also a logstore should you need to supplement the basketful left for the logburner inside.
pstairs are five bedrooms: four doubles and a single, all of which are cosy and full of charm and individuality. There are is a shower room and there’s plenty of hot water and towels for everyone. For larger parties there is an oversize sofa bed in the lounge and there’s plenty of space for a travel cot.
Fourways is a beautifully holiday home full of character and charm with plenty on offer for groups of up to 8 (plus infants in travel cots). The historic Tree Inn is less than 150 yards away and has bar, lounge, courtyard and restaurant with one of our favourite menus! Stratton offers plenty of local walks and is a very short drive (or a robust walk) into Bude where there are a wide range of facilities available including shops, bars and restaurants, play park and crazy golf, beaches and wharf, cafes, tennis courts, sports centre and a swimming pool.
