About the property

A fabulous house for 8 almost on the beach at Widemouth Bay

Arrive at By The Beach and you are where it is - by the beach! Take in the fresh sea air, the phenomenal views of the Atlantic and instantly realise your choice of holiday home was totally right. A fabulous property in the luxury development of eight superior houses situated yards from the beach at Widemouth Bay, By The Beach provides the perfect setting for a wonderful holiday. The accommodation is exquisite; four bedrooms with four bathrooms, a spacious living area with contemporary styled kitchen, dining and living room area the property is simply superb with amazing attention to detail – the owners have thought of everything.

When we say a minute’s walk to the beach that is genuinely what we mean. The house also has a good sized garden where you can sit and dine or just sit and enjoy the calming influence of the sea. If you want views over the Atlantic, check out the waves to see what the surf is doing and then decide on whether a surf, swim or simply a stroll along the beach is in order then a quick look out from the patio doors in the upstairs living area will tell you all you need to know and what the sea is doing.

The house offers two king sized bedrooms, both en-suite with a further en-suite double bedroom and en-suite twin room. The open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room offers fabulous views over the Atlantic and Widemouth Bay itself is ideally situated with some good restaurants, a fabulous daily fresh fish counter at the local “corner shop” and is within a five minute drive along the coastal road to Bude.

A fabulous property in an idyllic setting – By The Beach will prove to be an incredibly popular house for families and friends who like to holiday together.

Good sized garden with BBQ and patio furniture, lockable storage for surfboards and other outdoor equipment.

Fantastic modern holiday house right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Arriving at on the beach we were really impressed by the size, location and style of the property. Lovely touch of local teas and biscuits greeted us and the house was immaculate. We had a fantastic week at Widemouth. It was lovely to enjoy the views over the bay from the house and so handy to pop down to beach for a walk or surf. Ate out at Bay View Inn, Elements and the Beach House and highly recommend them all. Will definitely be back! Thank you for a fab stay.

Peaceful, relaxing in a little luxury, pure bliss

  • 5 of 5

I write to express our sadness that we are leaving this morning.

Overall our stay as been one of joy, relaxation and a chance to recharge our batteries which is just 'what the doctor ordered'. We cannot praise the properties on this small complex highly enough. The location, the high overall standard of each property and cleanliness. We simply couldn't ask for more!

To hear the sea each day and watch the sunsets each evening is just bliss. Yes.....we were blessed with good weather, but the property was such that it would have been a pleasure to stay in during wet colder days.

The booking process is so simple, whilst we have not had to call upon you, we are sure that our needs would have been catered for There seems to have been so much attention to detail and thought in making our stay memorable.

Though we shouldn't wish our time away, over the next few days we will be organising our time off for next year so we can re-book. We usually never return to the same place, but simply cannot wait to return.

Many Thanks Nigel & Karen Be in touch soon :-)

Fantastic location & beautifully immaculate

  • 5 of 5

You can stand and watch the ocean from the lounge windows and it's a simple stroll to the beach (if you can make it past the Black Rock Cafe without stopping for a coffee...). Inside, the house is perfectly immaculate with top notch fixtures & fittings. Everything has been thought of and the place is beautifully-run with such care and attention to detail. My whole family is booked to come and stay again this year.

Fantastic property, fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at this wonderful property. The listing was accurate, super clean and in fantastic condition - like being in a show home - with all mod cons.

The managing agent was more than helpful - both in booking and whilst we were there. We had to get an urgent parcel delivered and the agent was happy to take delivery for us. Great customer service all round. Including us being allowed our pets - which was really important to us.

Plenty to see and do locally, even in inclement weather - we spent the week surfing and it's a perfect spot for that. Suggest the open air tidal pool in Bude - and if you get the chance - check out the Bencoolen Wreckers - a local singing group singing Cornish folk and shanties!

We'll be back.

An amzing stay in a lovely place

  • 5 of 5

I just wanted to say thank you for the weeks let on the By the Beach property. We had a great time and my wife loved the accommodation. There was a far higher standard of fit out then we expected with every known utensil and appliance known to man or woman available, all in brand new condition and ready for use.

The cottage was very roomy and comfortable and we spent every evening in enjoying ourselves. One small note was the intermittent wifi, not sure what was up but it wasn't working all the time or too well.

Hearing the sea every morning and watching the amazing sunsets was superb and we left with many happy memories. If we are booking Cornwall again I am sure we will be in touch.

From my personal perspective the holiday has been easy to book, thoroughly enjoyable and exceeded our expectations throughout. This was from the time I first spoke with you right through to the time we arrived back home, replete and relaxed in the best possible way.
