A lovely stay at Woodhall Retreat, great location, extremely quiet, spacious and very well equipped with some added essentials from Sue & Mark. However I do feel I need to mention the garden is not enclosed if you have a small intelligent dog. Our small Cavapoo managed to escape by the side of the gate on the property, there is a cattle grid there Read morebut there was enough concrete for her to walk across! Luckily all was fine and Sue & Mark were happy for us to put some plastic garden fencing across. Hide

Fabulous venue, lovely hosts who went out of there way to accommodate our bikes in their garage. We particularly appreciated the cream tea, local farm eggs and fresh loaf of bread provided on our arrival after a long drive. Very peaceful location within a short drive (3-4 miles) of Bude where there are a nice selection of Restaurants, shops, beacheRead mores. The Tree inn at Stratton was the nearest restaurant with nice food although it was also easy to cook at home with a well equipped kitchen. Hide

Idyllic setting and accommodation A truly wonderful stay at The Woodhall Retreat . We could not have asked for better hosts or accommodation . Looking out over a wonderful sea and cliff setting put the fears of the past year behind us . So many wonderful places to see and visit within in an hour or so .

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.

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.
