Cool and calm, this oh-so-chic coastal retreat is the epitome of chilled-out seaside living. Step through the front door and everyday worries will fall away; tranquil blues and whites subtly imbue the spirit of sea, whilst luxurious velvets, smooth wood and thoughtfully chosen furnishings make it easy to fall into a holiday state of mind. With five exquisite bedrooms (two en suite and one with easy access), spectacular living spaces and a fab kitchen that opens out into the garden, this is a laid-back pad whilst the bubbling hot tub and outside entertainment area is just perfect for celebratory gatherings. Dog friendly and within a short walk of a sandy beach and places to eat and drink, this wonderful homestay lies in Widemouth Bay and is a perfect base from which to explore with Bude, Boscastle, Trebarwith Strand and Hartland Heritage Coast just a short drive away.


In calming tones of blue and white, the gorgeous sitting room is the perfect space to come together, whether it's after a busy day exploring the coast, a relaxing day on the beach or opening presents on Christmas day. Nestled around the wood burner are three velvet sofas, adorned with cushions and throws, perfect for cosying up on a winter's day, whilst bi-fold glass doors open on to the garden, making this a shady spot to enjoy the sea breeze on a hot summer's day. In addition, there's a Smart TV for film nights together and an iPod docking station to play your favourite tunes and to create the playlist for your holiday.

Bi-fold doors open out on to the garden with far-reaching sea views, letting in plenty of light, whilst the smart white cabinets and striking black worktops are home to all the equipment you need to rustle up meals. There's an induction hob, multifunction oven/microwave, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and all the other essentials including a Nespresso coffee machine. The central island is just perfect for prepping whilst three stalls are perfect for those wanting to keep the chef company as they cook!

In the kitchen you'll find a dining table for six, whilst the more formal dining room has an impressive wooden table with enough seating for ten - perfect for dinner parties and celebrations.

Set close to the beach in Widemouth Bay, you're just a short walk from the wide, sandy beach lined with rock pools, just waiting to be explored. A firm favourite with surfers, it's a great beach for both beginners and experienced alike, and there's some great surf schools should you need some lessons. The southern end of the beach (near Black Rock) is dog friendly all year, whilst the South West Coastal Path, which runs just next to the beach, is a fabulous route for walks - the path to Bude being especially good for children and dogs. You're also within walking distance of a great pub too - the Bay View inn - whilst there's cafes galore to sample. Pop in the car and head further afield to discover Boscastle, Tintagel, Trebarwith Strand, Port Isaac and Padstow, whilst head east to Bude and across the border into Devon. Head inland for a change of scenery and you're not far from wild and beautiful Dartmoor and the market towns of Tavistock and Okehampton.

Head to the North Cornish coast for this modern beauty; with sea views, beautiful interiors and a bubbling hot tub, this exquisite dog friendly homestay is just perfect for families and friends alike.
