Hideaway House - Stunning Rural Cornish Views - Close To Bude Beaches



Updated: 14-Nov-2016
House in Bude, Cornwall, England - Peaceful, Restful, Private

There are 4 bedrooms, with 3 bedrooms benefiting from spacious en-suite facilities. The house was built in 2014 so all aspects are in an immaculate condition.

Open-Plan Living: The kitchen, dinning area and lounge form a single communal open-plan space, ideal for families.

Kitchen: We love our food, so the kitchen is overstocked with interesting gadgets and of course the essentials. Toaster, kettle, microwave, fridge, oven and hob are all provided.

Lounge: Leather sofas abound with seating for 8. Open the huge bi-fold doors and enjoy the summer breeze from the comfort of your armchair.

Entertainment: Our high-speed wireless broadband is free for customers. LCD TVs are available in all rooms. The lounge has a 50 inch SMART TV with internet connectivity.

Music is brought to you by Sonos and the Spotify music streaming service, and iPod speaker dock for the more mature generation.

Winter Warmth: All room have underfloor heating. The temperature of each room is controlled separately. The lounge has a large (and extremely effective) wood-burning stove.

Patio Area & BBQ: The house is south facing, so the patio area benefits from full sun all day long. It has seating for 8, and barbecue facilities are provided.

Lawns & Views: There's a private lawned area to the side of the house, and as much grass as you can take in with the stunning 180 degree views looking south and down the Cornish coastline.

Parking: Cars can be parked in front of the house and on the long driveway. We can comfortably accommodate four large vehicles.

Environment: Energy is provided through solar panels and an air source heat pump. We provide bins and bags for guest to recycle. There a giant wind-turbine in the lounge (joke!)

Practical Stuff: There is a separate utility room with a sink, washing machine, tumble dryer and freezer.

About the Owner

Who We Are:

We are Gareth and Jennifer Rees. Originally from South Wales (Aberdare if you must ask), we have travelled and worked in lots of interesting places around the world, mostly within walking distance of a rideable wave. You'll see some evidence of our travels in our lovely house.

We finally settled in Cornwall 10 years ago, mostly as a means of elongating the life we lived elsewhere. We decided to bring up our children in Cornwall, surf it's waves and pace of life. We have two sports mad sons, William and Luke, who are learning the family business - just don't say the grass is unevenly cut, or there's a crease in your towels.

We sometimes pack our passports for trips back to Wales, but they can't understand the accent anymore.

Wow, what a place!! Everything about the house is lovely, it is down a little private drive and overlooking the fields so is really quiet and peaceful. Inside the house is amazing, pure luxury and its the little touches that really make it feel like home. There is absolutely everything you need from an outdoor bbq to board games to play at night. Free wi-fi is a really boost and it was lovely to spend days by the beach then chill out at night. Had one of our best holidays ever here and would not hesitate to go back

Stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Lovely large luxurious house with stunning views. The house was clean and tidy and well looked after with everything you could possibly need. We loved the view's and sat watching 8 or 10 buzzards in the sky at the same time one day. Very quiet and peaceful and a lovely retreat at the end of a busy day. The house also has a Sonos system and WiFi and we enjoyed unlimited music through Spotify. There is a television in every room. I would not hesitate to recommend this house to anyone and Gareth the owner was helpful through every stage of the process. I sincerely hope that I get to return. Gary Marilyn and Hannah.

Had a great NY break at hideaway house, the weather was not on our side but that really didn't ruin our time away as this place had every creature comfort you could possibly need and more! Exceeded all expectations and will definitely be back for round two.

Thanks to Gareth and Jenny for sharing your lovely home with us.

Absolutely stunning and perfect holiday home.

  • 5 of 5

I can honestly say this beautifully furnished house is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. From the sonas sound system to sandwich bags! I cannot express how amazing our stay has been. The view from the sofa is something else. Just beautiful. I will be coming back in the winter to enjoy the views of the rain/snow in front of the fireplace. This holiday home pushed all boundaries and is by far my favourite family holiday and that is down to the house and everything inside. Thank you!

Great family holiday at The Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We (6 adults, 2 children and a baby) stayed at The Hideaway for a week at the end of June (2015) and had a great time. The house was spotless when we arrived and even better than the photos! The setting is beautiful and very peaceful- the children loved seeing the cows in the adjoining field! The owners were very friendly and helpful and Gareth was prompt to respond when we had any questions prior to our stay. We also enjoyed the welcome Cider and local biscuits kindly left for us when we arrived which was a lovely gesture. We would definitely recommend The Hideaway as a place to stay, it's perfect for families and the house is very close to Bude centre and easy access to the A39. we particularly enjoyed visiting Widemouth Bay and for places to eat nearby we really enjoyed Revolutions (Burger place), Coasters and Elements (The Italian) in Bude. The Rectory Tearooms in Morwenstow was also very good- amazing afternoon teas! The local Village shop is also very quaint and sells good biscuits :)

Thanks again for a great holiday!

Amazing! Clean, modern and luxurious.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our teenage daughters and some friends for a week in August. First of all the place is immaculate. It's a new property and that's very evident with everything in 'as new' condition. The accommodation is extremely comfortable, with a large living space and bedrooms, and well finished bathrooms. The garden is also very big, with amazing views which extend to the sea. The welcome from the owners was warm and informative, and the little touches like BBQ bits and welcoming goodies were the icing on the cake. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property.

From the Owner

We like Bude. Perhaps it could be considered the black sheep of Cornish seaside towns, but we think it's a secret worth keeping. It's rare in North Cornwall to see a town with expanses of sand and greenery quite like Bude; there's simply space to do things. Rock and Padstow may get the national spotlight (and the crowds) but Bude is where you can find restaurants on a par with any in Cornwall, and can have the space and time to enjoy them. There's a great community feeling in Bude too, we are actively involved in Bude Rugby and many other sports clubs and organisations.

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

Lovely park across quiet Hele Bridge Road, offering football and basketball, and a children's play area.

Also see Further Details for a complete list of activities in the area.


The nearest beach is Widemouth Bay, 6 minutes in the car with the children, or a 40 minute walk just the two of you. Our favourite beach to escape the crowds and enjoy the rock pools is Northcott Mouth (12 mins in the car).

There are really so many beaches, catering for every taste. All are surfable given the right conditions.

For the walkers, the south west coast path is a 40 minute walk from Hideaway House via The Weir.


[All times are journey times by car from these locations]

Airports: Newquay (45 minutes), Exeter (70 mins), Bristol (120 mins)

Trains: Exeter St Davids (60 mins)

Bus: Exeter St Davids (60 mins)


Cities: Exeter (60 mins), Plymouth (60 mins), Truro (80 mins)

Places of Interest: Clovelly (30 mins), Eden Project(45 mins), Padstow (45 mins), St Ives (100 mins), Minack Theatre (120 mins).

Further Details:

- Surfing

The Ash brothers (Reubyn and Joss) are from Widemouth Bay, Bude. The Bude area is renowned for it's uncrowded mellow peaks, and gnarley reef secret spots (and not so secret spots).

Stay local, or choose to explore the most consistent and varied surf in the UK on your doorstep.

- Cycling

A general roll down Hele Bridge Road brings you to a quiet, family friendly off road cycle track into Bude. Stop at The Weir on the way back for a cream tea.

Hop onto the Tamar Trail at Bideford. It’s a 40 mins drive from Bude. Leafy and shaded, it’s ideal in summer for all ages.

Alternatively the Camel Trail at Wadebridge is a 40 mins drive. It hugs the Camel Estuary giving truly spectacular estuary views, and the reward of Rick Stein’s fish and chips when you arrive in Padstow. Again ideal for all ages, but take the sun cream.

Cycle hire shops abound in Bude, Bideford, Padstow and Wadebridge if necessary.

- Eating and Drinking

The local pub, The Bullers Arms is a 5 minute walk. The Sunday carvery is a must.

Bude has many good quality restaurants supporting a variety of cuisines. Our current favourites are Life’s a Beach (fish), Elements (Italian) and The Olive Tree (Contemporary).

Further afield, Bude is ideally located to explore the culinary hotspot of Padstow. Rick Stein gets a mention of course (the cookery school is a great out-of-season experience) but there’s variety there too.

Wash it all down with the best (in my humble opinion) sparkling wine in the UK, from the Camel Valley vineyards.

- Heritage and Gardens

Landhydrock is a classic example of a Victorian country house and estate. The gardens show their beauty at different stages of the year with Rhododendrons in April a particular highlight. National trust quality food and service too. A 45 minute drive.

Rosemoor gardens are a 45 minute drive. Lush and serene, the RHS continue to do a great job in providing an escape from the everyday for their patrons.
