I have just returned form a weeks stay here with my wife and father. The cottage is located about 15 minutes from Bude in a small village called 'Shop'. There is not much in the village itself, but there is a nice pub called the bush about a 5 minute drive if that which served nice food and decent Cornish ales.
The cottage itself is a good size, not too hard to find and has a large driveway to park in. The master bedroom is very big, with a superking bed and a bathroom - this is a roll top bath, basin and toilet which is separated from the rest of the room with a thin curtain, not an issue but just make sure you are comfortable with your partner or you might want to use the main bathroom. A nice feature is that the bedroom has patio doors out onto the decking.
The master bathroom is again, a decent size with a shower. It does seem like the shower tray might need some new sealant, but it doesn't cause a problem.
The kitchen is well equipped with a large range cooker (which took a while to work out), dishwasher, double sink and all the cutlery and crockery you could need. The American style fridge freezer with ice maker is a nice addition.
By far the best room is the conservatory, with its large table, sofas and views out across the garden towards the sea. We spent most of our time in this room.
There is also a lounge with log burner, though we didn't use it. It has two sofas and a freeview TV. There is WiFi available in the house which is good and some books/dvd's. There was also a small radio.
In the garden there is a large decked area with patio furniture and a very big lawn. The BBQ is ok, and worked fine. Steps lead up to the raised hot tub with views over to the coast which is superb.
As you can see I have rated this 4/5 in keeping with my usual scoring. The only slight things that have reduced this from a 5/5 were some small decorative things here and there, I think some new baking trays might be worth it, the tap on the roll top bath dripped slightly and the shower tray having a bit of a leak. Honestly, these do not spoil the cottage and I would give 4.5 is trip advisor allowed, but its not quite perfect for a 5/5. I do however think the price is very reasonable and allowing pets is good as its not always easy to find great places that allow them.
In summary, I would recommend this cottage fully if you like a quiet escape with some luxury appointments.
