About Philippa John

I am a retired teacher who has come back to Bude to live after many years away. I love the sea and have been missing it for all these years so decided to move back..

Whilst you are in my home I will be travelling and I hope you enjoy your time as much as I hope I will!

Philippa John purchased this house in 2011

Why Philippa John chose North Cornwall

I love this area. The beaches are brilliant and the coast path stunning. Bude has some really lovely independent shops and a somewhat quirky feel. Even the cinema nearby is called 'The Rebel'.

Cycling is great too with some good cycle paths around Bude and beyond.

What makes this house unique

The house is very close to the beach and its location offers protection from the coastal winds.

A lovely stay, helped by some good weather. The house was a good size, we had seven staying. Owner on hand to help, if needed. Great location, just a short distance to walk to beach and town centre.

Lovely holiday cottage close to the sea and local amenities. We've been holidaying in bude for over 30 years and this is one of the nicest houses we've stayed in. Would recommend and am sure we will use again.

Lovely comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

A lovely comfortable house well located in Bude. It is a 5 minute walk from Crooklets Beach (which has a great beach cafe called Rosie's), and about a 10 minute walk from the centre of Bude and the main Summerleaze beach (and the Sainsbury's!). It was well equipped, and very comfortable with a good sized kitchen and living room. The shower room was amazing (and great for washing down sandy children!), and it had a small, pretty garden at the back. There is lots to do around Bude - we managed walks along the cliffs, a cycle ride on the Tarka Trail, body boarding at Widemouth Bay, surfing lessons in Bude, a trip to the Eden Project - and also managed a fair bit of lazing around.
