About Tim Stafford

Local surfer, shaper and artist. Left corporate life in 2000 to begin living the dream... and have never regretted a moment.

Tim Stafford purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Tim Stafford chose Widemouth Bay

Location location location...

It's all about the sea... being able to wake up and look out of the window and see the vastness of the ocean. To be able to wander down to the beach, go for a walk, or jump in for a surf. To never to miss a sunset...

Widemouth is still a quiet place, the beach even in the peak of season still has enough space for you to enjoy it. For me it is like the Cornwall i remembered as a child, that no longer exists in the crowded villages further south.

What makes this cottage unique

So light and airy and the proximity to the beach is just fantastic. The sea views captivate me every day, especially the sunsets. To be able to keep tabs on the conditions for surf is also pretty amazing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Faye Cooper: July 2014.

We have just returned from a very special holiday at Stanton. What can I say? The accommodation more than met our needs. It was comfortable, spacious, light and bright and had all the facilities you'd expect. What you wouldn't expect is such a peaceful setting, the convenience for the beach, a nice garden to relax in, and amazing views.

The short stroll to the beach made this a holiday to remember. Evening swims until sunset and a quick walk "home" to shower and change. No need to take the car and pay for parking. For us the teenagers could come and go to the beach with or without us. Even carrying surf boards from the house was practical.

Thanks for a great holiday, for helping to organise surf lessons and pointing us to local facilities too.

What a lovely place. We'll be back.

I cannot recommend this holiday accommodation enough. Being just a short stroll to the beach was so convenient and Widemouth Bay is simply a beautiful location for your holiday. You can stay in the Bay, enjoying the beach, cafes, bar and there's a shop too or you can explore Bude which just a short drive away. Stanton really felt like a home from home for us, it was so spacious and comfortable. Me and my boys absolutely loved it. We will miss the sound of the waves lulling us to sleep at night. Perfect!

comfort and a great location

  • 5 of 5

A happy family holiday home from home. Stanton gave us a holiday and base that more than met our needs. The house is light and bright, comfortable and spacious with everything you'd expect in the way of facilities.

Add to that the location, a stones throw from a beautiful beach, it made it a holiday to remember. Including sunset swims and only a quick walk home to shower. Surf lessons nearby too. No need to take to pay for parking, just come and go to the beach as often as you fancy, great for the teenagers and the surf. Not to mention the peace and quiet, the sunny garden and even some views.

We'll definitely be back, thank you

Quick access to A30 before the single lane bottlenose sections from Bodmin on.

Being at the top end of North Cornwall and only 30 minutes from the A30 it is easier to get to than the more well-known resorts further south, providing more stress free start and end to your holiday. SUNDAY CHANGEOVERS avaialble to avoid peak traffic times.
