About Geoffrey Adams

We bought Beagle Cottage as a Holiday Home and an opportunity to renovate and improve an Old Property to provide a good space to enjoy the sea/country views it affords. With the help of a Local Architect and Builder we refurbished the original traditionally built part of the Cottage and then created the Annex using a timber framed construction to replace a lean-to garage.

The Dining room/utility room and sitting area were designed to enable us to enjoy the view across the countryside to the open sea.The work took us about 18 months including getting the dreaded planning permission.

Shortly after we had completed the workone of our sons then came to live in the property whilst working as a vet with a local practice as an Equine Vet.

He now works in the South East and so we decided that we would enter the Holiday Market so that the Cottage would be enjoyed by others.

We are working farmers based in South Wales but get down as often as our farming life permits.We flirt with retiring to this Cottage in Cornwall but the time never quite seems right but meantime hope you will enjoy it as much as we do

Geoffrey Adams purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Geoffrey Adams chose Bude-Stratton

The Cottage is within easy driving distance of the M5. Nothcott Mouth Road which leads to a quiet dog friendly all year round beach with Car parking. You can easily walk to the Beach. From it you can access all parts of North Cornwall easily and avoid the crowds even in High Season. We have found that it affords an area of repose without isolation

What makes this cottage unique

We enjoy the local pubs ,restaurants ,eating breakfast out, walking the dog, being away from the day job .

The Enclosed garden gives us the opportunity to "stay in" but still look out ..

The High Speed Broadband enables the" Out side" to" Come In" as, when, and if, YOU( not it} choose yet enjoy the world of the Internet etc-staying in touch on your terms.

We fell in love with the view and the traditionally built part of the Cottage.To sit in the forward area of the sitting room of an evening enjoying a gentle beer /glass of wine whilst gently rocking on the chair -the foot stool rocks too- watching the sun go down cannot be recommended too highly-only problem there is only room for two chairs!

With Binoculars we can look over the Lake at the Bird Sanctuary and see the Migrants and Resident Birds landing and taking off, sometimes feeding in the field next to the property.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property's and the views are so amazing, so relaxing just looking outside at the ocean and the children loved watching the cows in the field. Cottage is decorated to a high standard and is nice and homely. The cottage is in a fab location really close to bude and the surrounding areas and as national trust member we loved Sandymouth and Northcott mouth Beach which is literally only down the road. The only critism I have is that it didn't really cater well for children, there was no children's cuttlery or plates or any games and books which we have normally had in other property's but this is only a minor thing as if you are aware you can take it with you. everything else was fab and we only got back today and we are looking to book next year. Will defiantly recommend this property to family and friends.

Relaxing week enjoying the breathtaking views over Bude

  • 5 of 5

We were very excited to arrive at Beagle cottage and we certainly weren't disappointed. So keen that we missed the entrance to the annex and what a beautiful surprise that was.

On a sunny evening you can look out of top front windows and catch the sun setting over the fields.

The views across Bude are absolutely stunning. We spent nearly every evening enjoying the views from the rocking chairs.

The cottage is very well equipped and was impeccably clean. The bread, Jam and milk were also a lovely personal touch and kept the wolves at bay while we waited for our shopping delivery.

A walk from Northcott bay beach to Bude along the cliff tops and also along the beach is a must (when the tide is right of course.)

We absolutely lovely the cottage and would most definitely book here again when we next visit Cornwall.

Thank you again for letting us stay in such a beautiful cottage.

What a well thought out cottage, farm style with modern twist. Comfortable, with panoramic views.

  • 4 of 5

Unfortunately the weather was against us, but we managed to do something every day. The south west coast path being about 20 minutes walk away or a couple of minutes drive with parking at Northcott Mouth. The walks over the downs provide some spectacular views. We also walked the canal from Bude which is very peaceful with an abundance of wild life including a nature reserve and separate cycle route, also a cafe bistro to stop off and refresh in pleasant surroundings. However we did find ourselves extremely fortunate to have such comfortable accommodation to return to.

Amazing property with great views, well equipped- friendly owners

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a 4 night stay during February - 2 adults, 3 children and 1 dog. The cottage is stunning - beautifully decorated with some lovely features and a real mixture of traditional and contemporary aspects.

The children loved the "annex", as well as the separate lounge area inside the main house. Adults loved the rocking chairs with ceiling to floor glass bay window.

Would love to come back and stay again.

Attractive, comfortable, well equipped

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fabulous week, Beagle Cottage was fantastic.

We loved the cottage, a brilliant design mixing the traditional cottage with modern extension.

The location is perfect mix of countryside and beach, we enjoyed walking on cliffs and (not being surfers) having a paddle when the tide was out.

As we’re National Trust members we usually drove to the car park, as our dog pulls so much on the lead, the road walk wasn’t very enjoyable.

Relaxed in the garden (conversing with the heiffers in the field!) and appreciated the wonderful view from inside the cottage later in the day

Had a day out at the Eden Project (which is now dog friendly)
