Overview

About the property

Cottage in Bude, Cornwall, England - Peaceful Location 2 Minutes Walk From Beach And Town Centre

Mallard Cottage dates back to the mid 1830's. Originally it was a barn where boats were restored but then was modified into a cottage. We purchased the cottage at the beginning of 2012 but unfortunately it was unsafe and most of the original cottage had to be rebuilt to modern standards. Our cottage stands in the heart of Bude and sits on the banks of the River Neet, only 2 minutes walk to the beach and canal. It has its own access road to the rear with parking for 2/3 vehicles and a balcony which overlooks the river and the castle. Large ground floor patio area with palm tree.

Beautiful Cottage in a fab location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here recently for a week with our young child and our dog. Mark the owner was very helpful with his directions and the information he gave us prior to our holiday, plus the touches at the property for our arrival were gratefully received. The cottage was lovely and clean and the showers were amazing! The location is fantastic and we didn't use the car for several days. The beach is literally a 2 min walk down the road as are the shops and a nice selection of pubs. We ate at the Falcon and the food was lovely, had a drink at the Brendon Arms too and we took our dog to most places. We did a long costal walk every morning and the views were fantastic. Atlantic Village shopping outlet kept us entertained on the one rainy day that we had and we got some great bargains. Clovelly is another place to visit too.

The lady who manages the cottage who lives a few doors away was friendly too. All in all a great place to stay in a lovely location.

First Class Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five plus one dog have just stayed at this cottage and one word sums it up " Exellent ".From the time we spoke to the owner Mark several months before, we were sure we de made the right choice of cottage.On arrival after a nightmare 12 hour car journey within 10 minutes the journey was forgotten after we saw this gem of a cottage,clean,beautiful kitchen and everywere finished to a very high standard.The cottage was close to all amenities,shops,restaurants and the beach all within easy walking distance.Our 3 children had there first surfing experience after we enroled them into the "big blue surf school".The teachers at this surf school were excellent,fun and managed to get the children surfing over the two days they attended.Most shops,cafes and pubs were dog friendly.We ate out at the Brendon Arms and were able to let our dog sit by the table in the bar.We also used the cottage bbq on a couple of nights.Summing up our holiday I would say the description of the property is excellent,i would also recommend it to friends.Mark the owner was also very helpful with information and directions.

Beautiful Cottage in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Mallard cottage as a family during August.

This place is 1st rate. In a central location near to both the beach and centre of Bude. The cottage itself has everything you need and is finished to an excellent standard. The owner Mark is extremely friendly and the extra little touches on arrival were very much appreciated.

Would definitely book here again.

CHARACTER AND COMFORT

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here twice in the last month with a dog. Position is fantastic you do not need to have a car once you have arrived. Beach, shops and restaurants within easy walking and you can hear the sea! This cottage is spacious and has been imaginately designed to please with modern comforts like the fantastic hot powerful showers. Lovely balcony to watch the world go by. Good parking space with enclosed yard for dogs/children. Friendly helpful lady who manages the property next door. Will use again.

Beautifully restored cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with this cottage.The renovation by owner Mark was second to none,as he and his wife hope to retire to it he obviously wanted the best and the best it is!

Location is perfect to enjoy all that Bude has to offer,close to the wonderful beach and the very diverse shops.

We had some very good meals indeed; all in walking distance,namely at The Olive Tree,The Falcon Hotel and Mirchi (Indian) All gave outstanding service and very good food.

One small fault that I,m afraid Mark can do nothing about is that the cottage is situated across the river to a nightclub....we had some noise between 1 and 2.30 in the morning for a couple of nights,but once the windows were closed there was very little to hear!

All in all a perfect cottage for a family holiday.
