About the Owner

Hi There, I manage Strawberry Water and like to make everything run really smoothly, from booking to your departure. If there is anything you need or want help with to make your holiday special please ask. I have lived and worked along the coastline here for over twenty years and know many of the local restaurateurs and businesses personally. I have been a chef, hotel manager, pub owner and location manager, and have surfed just about every surf break possible within 40 miles!

A little piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful, spacious, well-kept, sprawling house provided the perfect venue for our family holiday - 9 adults and 4 children (2-9). We were welcomed with the makings of a Devonshire Cream Tea, and vases of fresh flowers, which, after our very long journey, were especially appreciated. Such consideration has gone into everything, from the superb furnishings and high-end linens, to the excellently equipped kitchens and the quality children's books and games. Anything we needed or wanted, we could find - including beach towels, large platters/bowls for a crowd like ours, a whole drawerful of spoons ... The gardens are extensive, with many little nooks for some quiet space, and grass for the children to play, and the wood-fired sauna was well-utilized. We rented all three units - the Main House, the Dungeon (fascinating history!), and the Cottage - so there was ample space for everyone, and each section was fully equipped in its own right. The only suggestion for improvement would be to provide safety bars on the upper bunk beds in both the main house and the cottage - a little too high and unsafe for the little ones. We took advantage of the nearby beach, the South West Coast Path, and the local pub, the Smithy, where we found a Beer and Cider Festival with excellent live music, and the biggest selection of beers/ciders we had ever seen. If we have the chance to return to Strawberry Water, we shall most definitely take it!

Facilities

From the Owner

This house is ideal for large family gatherings. With large areas for social gathering at meal times and plenty of gardens and lawns. There is a wood fired Sauna next to the stream, and a huge garden table. Having three self contained cottages in the property means that there is always a place to relax for everyone. There is a pub a short walk away, and the town of Bude is close enough to fill up with provisions at the supermarkets or hire surfing equipment.
