We stayed in Wheatley Barn & loved the "upside down" layout as it took such great advantage of the stunning views. The location for us was perfect, close to the coast - I can imagine being on the coast in the summer could be really busy! The barn is perfect for holidays throughout the year - we stayed in February & the log burner was lovely & cosy whilst the pool & hot tub were great to keep the children happy as well as us. Highly recommended & we loved Bude. Rating 5 out of 5, Jenny, Feb 2013.
We had a lovely stay here in Bedford Cottage in 2012 & I can't recommend it highly enough - it is stunning & I don't think the photos do it justice. The children absolutely loved the indoor swimming pool whilst we relaxed in the jacuzzi hot tub. It was great also to be able to take the dog & there were so many walks around the farm. All in all we had a wonderful, relaxing holiday & will certainly be visiting again. Rating 5 out of 5, James, received Feb 2013.
