A quirky and cosy newly renovated studio, ideally situated with the beach, canal, shops, pubs and restaurants all within walking distance, making this a perfect couples getaway.

Situated down a quiet street less than a mile’s walk from Summerleaze Beach, this wonderful Bude property promises a peaceful escape to guests. Bright and airy with a unique bespoke cabin bed to sleep in, this little studio is the ideal romantic hideaway for two. Wake up to plenty of natural light, pop down the ladder and enjoy your morning snuggled up on the cuddle sofa.

Whether you’re off down the South West Coast Path (1 mile) taking in the views from the Pepper Pot or enjoying a sociable meal at the dining table, you can relax in your own way here. The interiors are contemporary and stylish; the stunning brick feature wall next to the kitchen and wood panelling around the bed add a quirky feel; climb the short ladder and you’re transported into a pretty coastal cabin for a perfect night’s sleep.

Take a swim in the Bude Sea Pool (1 mile) and look out across beautiful views. If you’re after more adrenaline, swap the boredom for buzz at Atlantic Pursuits (5.5 miles) where you can try boogie boarding, surfing or Canadian canoeing. Head to Boscastle (15 miles) and visit the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic before heading up the coast path to Warren Point, or even down to Tintagel Castle (4.5 miles from museum; 19.5 miles from property) if you’re up for a longer walk

Lovely retreat and great location to get to the beach by foot. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable. After travelling five hours, you felt instantly welcomed with some coffee, milk and bread waiting for you in the kitchen. The owners were very friendly and welcoming.

A comfy and well equipped little place for 2 with parking within easy walking access to all the amenities of the lovely coastal town of Bude (restaurants/ bars, shops, sea pool, beach) Dog friendly and Well located for walking nearby, including being allowed on the main beach, coast path, canal and river banks. The only criticism I have is you needRead more to accept that theres absolutely no outdoor space to sit at the property and mostly high windows inside so limited views out once back inside. Hide

We had a lovely stay at the Bude Retreat - we adored the location. You are staying so close to Bude town centre and Summerleaze Beach. The owners were so friendly and welcoming. The overall aesthetic of the Retreat is really beautiful - you can tell the owners take pride in their property! Many thanks again for a lovely stay!

The Bude Retreat was a perfect base for our time in Cornwall; I highly recommend for a couple (and a dog!) wanting to stay in Bude. The location was amazing for exploring all the coast has to offer and the short walk to the beach meant we spent lots of evenings watching the sunset. The hosts were wonderful and really made us feel welcome. We loved Read morethe design of the property and the cabin style bed was especially comfortable!

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.

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
