About the Owner

The Stamp family have been here in Bude four generations.

Munster Cottage was first bought by Sir Laurance Dudley-Stamp. The present owner is his grandson, Jonathan Stamp whose career had kept him away from his home town of Bude for many years, travelling the world on cruise ships performing his solo juggling, unicycling, comedy show!

He has since reduced his time away by performing only on european cruises, flying out for only a few days at a time to join ships at ports mid cruise. So he can now have more time with his new family, fiancé Gina and baby Siena who joined them in 2013!

Jonathan has spent the past 10 years maintaining Munster Cottage and Ebbingford, adapting the beautiful manor to accommodate a delightfully romantic & interesting self-catering holiday let as well as providing a secluded home for his family.

Bryoni T- Review on TripAdvisor- "The location of this property is absolutely perfect. Literally a stones throw from a lovely, sandy beach, with rocks and dunes to explore.

A short walk in a few different directions gave us pretty much everything we needed for a week away with three energetic boys. Lots of nice cafe's and pubs, parks, a handful of shops, bowling and Softplay and two Supermarkets. Bude was just the right size for us.

The house itself was mostly very clean, lovely crisp white bed linen and comfy beds. Gorgeous light rooms and that amazing view from literally every window. The kitchen was well equipped but was missing scissors and some kids bowls would be handy. The rooms are all good sizes, 5 of us were very comfortable in it. We loved sitting at the Dining table just watching the view. Thank-you for a lovely stay."

Paula R, Feltham,um-review on TripAdivor-"We had the pleasure of staying at Munster Cottage, 4 adults, 2 children and 2 dogs.... The cottage is amazing with views from all round...... The kids and the dogs had an amazing time on the beach and then drying out and warming up in front of the fire. The beds in all rooms were extremely comfortable and bathrooms plenty for all..... We saw a seal pup rescued from in front of the house......and experienced tidal waves but totally safe....... The owners were very nice and made sure we we were comfortable. Hope we can all return soon..... Paula, Ian, Julie, Ady, Emily, Chloe, Sidney and Stanley......"



Review3.

Aitch22, Chichester-Review on TripAdvisor-"Stayed as a family of five, 2 adults and 3 teens, for late Easter Break after getting special deal via eBay.

Substantial detached house, dating from 1934. Plenty of room for all, with two large double bedrooms and sturdy bunks. Location couldn't be bettered - 100 paces from the sand - and views from every room.

(Access would be tricky for less able-bodied as up steep steps from beach.)

High quality modern furnishings, wood floors downstairs, lots of stripped pine. Separate shower and bathrooms and well-equipped kitchen, with recent dishwasher, etc. The sole recommendation for improvement would be to consider offering WiFi.

Would happily recommend this property to anyone."

Wonderful !

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in Bude staying at Munster Cottage. The house is beautiful, it is well appointed with everything you need. It was absolutely spotless and the sofa's and beds are lovely and comfortable. The location could not be better, a few steps to the canal and beach, the views are incredible and falling to sleep to the sound of the sea is lovely. We would not hesitate in returning to stay again.

Beautiful Unrivalled Destination Experience

  • 5 of 5

There's not many holiday houses that you stay in where it feels like a home as soon as you walk in. beds were comfy ,rooms spacious every utensil and crockery that you would ever need, a very enjoyable time , didn't want to leave, our Tibetan terrier loved being able to walk to beach without a lead on . I would definitely recommend to anybody who wants a fantastic home to stay in and absolutely amazing views, some nights we sat without television on watching the tide meandering up the beach and to top it all Bude town is beautiful. We will definitely be back as soon as we can. Thankyou Gina and Johnathan for letting us stay.

Ideal location, ideal property

  • 5 of 5

This property is ideal for those who either want to explore or just be right on top of one of the best beaches in the country. The layout is perfect for its location and every room (even the garage!!) has a view of the sea.

Being surfers, the garage was ideal storage for boards and kit, and in literally 20 steps and a few strides you can then paddle across the outlet to the surf like we did. Then a powerful, large warm shower waiting on your return!

The property is well equipped and in our opinion offers great value for money. The beds are huge and very comfy.

The kids loved the short walk to the beach and sat and watched the world go by all day every day. As did the big kids.

Being regular visitors to beautiful Bude, without doubt we will be using this property again.

Thank you for sharing your lovely cottage with us!

A sheer joy to stay here!

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect! Everything is beautifully laid out and every single room has stunning views of the beach and sea. Walking distance to the town centre means the facilities are close at hand, but not too close if you know what I mean! Gina and Jon made sure we had everything for a perfect Christmas holiday, including a tree and decorations! We will come back again! PS this house is perfect for surfers!

This is a fantastic cottage with unrivalled views across the beach and very well looked after and comfortable inside. We just parked the car and didn't touch it again for the week - bliss! A perfect Bude holiday!

Munster Cottage is owned by Jonathan Stamp, whose family have owned it for three generations now. Jonathan loved growing up here and since travelling the world with his career and living 8 years in Hawaii, Bude was still where he dreamt of settling and bringing up his family. Being a keen surfer, having Summerleaze beach right there, with it's good reputation for surf is a huge bonus and having stunning coastal walks right on our doorstep is a joy. Bude is a lovely small town with more Cornish attractions not far away, Clovelly, Boscastle, Tintagel Castle, Rock & Padstow just 30 minute drives away.

Some wildest&most beautiful stretches of North Cornwall coastal path encompass Bude. There are also numerous inland, well-marked footpaths and bridleways.
