Why David and Rebecca Lee chose Bude

We bought Flexbury Lodge as a family home in 2007. David previously worked nearby in Holsworthy.

In 2014 we moved to near Taunton for various family reasons. We didn't want to part with Flexbury Lodge as it has such great access to the beaches of Bude, the coastal path and so many of the other things we love about North Cornwall.

Bude is a fabulous location for a family holiday. There are so many activities to try, and all set in such a beautiful location.

Great house for family get together

  • 4 of 5

Half term October holiday was a great sucess, in part due to the house being so well equiped, and heating, hot water etc all plentiful. Especially as we had storm Brian to contend with, which did mean minor issues with a leak and damp patches which you had mentioned.

Two slight niggles, the Broadband was very intermittant which upset the techies amongst us! Secondly, and I nearly didn't take the house for that reason, we are all tall, and bed ends therefore do not allow for flexibility when deciding who sleeps where! One of our sons slept on the floor as he is 6ft 5in! I rent out a ski apartment in France and we have ziplinked divans for that reason, allowing maximum flexibility.

Dave Sargent (chef) enabled us to have a great celebration dinner.

All in all the holiday was hugely enjoyed by everyone and we even got some surfing and suping in after the storm and waves had subsided.

A spacious and well equipped house.

  • 4 of 5

This property is suitable for a large group. There are plenty of rooms for families to spread out in and it has a super large table that was great for meal times.

There are 5 good sized bedrooms, bear in mind that two are on the third floor. They are easily accessible, but just require an extra flight of stairs.

The Kitchen was particularly well equipped and had plenty of room for storing and preparing food.

The property was clean on arrival.

David responded well to all points of contact and we arrived to find scones, jam and clotted cream, which was a lovely surprise.

The location was good for both local beaches which were a walk away. Summerleaze beach provided lots of activities such as surfing and swimming in the sea pool. The house was also a short drive away from Clovelly, Tamar Otter and Wildlife Centre and The Big Sheep, which was fun for kids.

There were plenty of restaurants and cafes in the area. Life's a beach and Rosie's café were both very good.

A great stay and I would recommend this property.

Fantastic Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Flexbury Lodge is a perfect house for our party of eight adults, four children and two well behaved dogs (with responsible owners. The accommodation is very clean and well maintained with plenty of room to spread out as well as a table big enough for family supper. The kitchen is incredibly well stocked with utensils and equipment. We LOVE the fridge! Communication with the owners is excellent and we would certainly recommend this property to others. Bude is our favourite place and we have been visiting for over thirty years. The house is in a good position to walk to shops or beaches as well as providing a base for further exploration. We try to bike ride the Camel Trail from Wadebridge to Padstow each year as well as enjoying Crocklets, Summerleaze and Widemouth Bay beaches closer to home. Wonderful cliff walks and downs as well as an excellent Heritage Centre. Best pasties, the post office on the crescent!

Perfect home for a large family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Flexbury Lodge to celebrate my mother's 70th birthday. There were 12 of us - 8 adults, 1 teenager, 2 children and a baby, and plenty of room for everyone.

The house is exactly as described. Lovely bedrooms and bathrooms, and plenty of downstairs spaces for everyone to do their own thing. The kitchen deserves a special mention as it is very well laid out and has everything you can think of (including a table big enough to easily seat us all). The playroom is very well stocked with toys and games and the children loved it. The whole house is super-clean and well maintained.

The house is within easy walking distance of both the centre of Bude (plenty of shops and restaurants), the golf course, and of course the beaches. I highly recommend Flexbury Lodge and hope to go back sometime.

Superb family house in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This spacious house catered for the needs of all our family ranging in age from 7 to 72. It was very well equipped - the kitchen had everything you could need! The dining area and sun room were lovely and the young people enjoyed the family room. The bathrooms and showers were excellent. We loved the location of the house in Bude as everywhere was so easy to access - beaches, town, recreation area for tennis and crazy golf, restaurants, canal etc. A really good family venue! I can thoroughly recommend this property. Maureen Hooper

The beach is an easy 750 metre walk. The pavements are mostly smooth Tarmac. We enjoy being able to don our wetsuits at home and then walk to the beach carrying surfboards and bodyboards.

No need to change at the beach!

There are also good sized car parks at both the beaches in Bude.
