About Jo

Our family roots have been in Bude since the 18th century with links to the notoriously dangerous merchant sailing ships navigating in and out of Bude's harbour.

We have owned the Beach House since 1984 and have enjoyed many happy times there as a family and with friends over the years.

There are photographs in the house showing the timeless appeal of beach holidays from times gone by.

The artwork inspired by the house and it's surroundings adds to the character of the Beach House much of it painted by the house's owner.

We hope that you enjoy your holidays!

Jo purchased this house in 1980

Why Jo chose North Cornwall

The house's location offers you the best of a beach & coastal town location with the space and exhilaration of the North Cornish coast on your doorstep.

Bude has won the gold award for best U.K. coastal resort 2015 & 2016 at the British travel awards.

A fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 adults had a wonderful post-Easter break at Beach House. The house was large and spacious, the beds were comfy, the views to the beach were good and there was everything in the house we needed for a relaxing and perfect stay. We loved driving to various spots round the North Cornwall coastline - Port Isaac, Clovelly, Docton Mill Gardens, Tintagel, and had some wonderful walks in these areas. The weather was amazing, and we enjoyed some swimming and surfing too, and a BBQ in the garden! Jo was really helpful in organising our stay across some unconventional dates, and did some shopping for us pre-arrival, although there's a Sainsbury's right up the road within walking distance.

The situation of the house so close to the beach gave the place a wonderful serenity and peace, and all our family loved the place. It truly felt like home very quickly, and we can't rate it highly enough.

If I had one word of caution, it would be its rating as suitable for the elderly, as there are lots of stairs, only one room with en-suite facilities and in a large group of people no separate room if they wanted or needed some privacy downstairs. But as my elderly mother couldn't travel at the last minute that turned out not to be a problem for us.

Otherwise - Thank you so much for a perfect holiday!!

Perfect house perfect location

  • 5 of 5

What can I say? This house is beautiful and very well thought out. For 7 adults and a toddler (would have had space for more children) it worked so well. We all had our own bathrooms, the beds were comfy. The Kitchen is a dream to use (my husband is cursing you as he now has an extension to build so I can have one just like it!) The welcome package of tea, coffee and biscuits is most appreciated. It is a short walk from the beach which was great for the dogs in the morning. The beach looks rocky at high tide but is beautifully sandy once it goes out. Bude is a 10-20 minute walk away depending on your mobility, Sainsburys 2 minutes away for supplies. Restaurants to note were La Bocca and Life's a beach and the Cafe on crooklets was lovely and dog friendly. The icecream shop in Bude was amazing and it was fairly central to alot of things we wanted to do. All in all the house works well for a large family and the location is perfect for a seaside holiday. We will be back!

House is very well equipped and there was enough space for all of us (we had 8 - 80 age group). It's brilliantly situated and very comfortable. Highly recommended.

Excellent house and great adventure weekend.

  • 5 of 5

Beach house is an amazing property in a fantastic location. It is a short walk from Crooklets beach, Summerleeze beach and the main town centre.The house is BIG and a great communal space for family and friends to enjoy. There is outside space to front and back to sit, enjoy and store all your wet kit. The ping-pong table is a great addition. The owner was excellent to deal with and the communication and help fantastic. I would highly recommend and hope to visit again soon. Chillie Dippers at the Bude Tidal Pool Channel Challange 2016

Great house , Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

This has to have been the best holiday ever. The whole family enjoyed staying at the house, it is huge but still very comfortable. It has everything you could want from a holiday house, we are already thinking of booking again next year and making it an annual family holiday.There is plenty to do and you do not have to drive any where to do it. FANTASTIC
