“Sea Ayr- excellent ,very well equipped, spacious and clean.”
Reviewed 21 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

The Cottage was a Flat/ Apartment which we missed in reading the Sykes information. However, the Flat (the owner’s description) was excellent and very well equipped, spacious and clean. We were very pleasantly surprised when we opened the front door. The “sea side/ beach” theme was visible in all rooms and the outlook via the patio doors was pleasing. The owners had provided scones, cream and Jam along with a litre of milk which was much appreciated after our long Journey. Our stay within “Sea Ayr” was very quiet which is what we wanted, this I expect was due to the limited number of guests staying in the other apartments. The Flat is part of a larger complex which we were not aware of but it would be fine for a family, and the back lawn was spacious and safe and an ideal place to meet new friends and other holiday makers.
The only down side which has absolutely nothing to do with the owners/flat was Maer lane the access lane. The owner did mention that it is somewhat in need of repair, but the craters not pot holes in this lane were huge and in many cases full of water. It does appear that this situation has been an issue for some time and it seems that the local council are unwilling to repair the lane due to a dispute about ownership. Walking to and from Bude is a challenge a good 20 minutes and during peak times one has to avoid the many cars that use the lane where the drivers are unwilling to navigate through the holes and tend to expect the pedestrians to give the cars and vans the easiest passage hence forcing walker to jump into the grass verge. At night, it would be unsafe to use the lane but during the summer months this would not be a problem.

However, putting all this aside, Sea Ayr was a great place to stay and chill out, the coast line is spectacular and Bude itself provides many hidden places to explore. I would highly recommend it especially for a small family who don’t mind the walk into Bude where they can spend hours of fun on the excellent beaches.

“Family time”

We have recently returned from a very relaxing stay at this lovely apartment. We had a 10 month old and the set up in the bedroom was perfect for babys nighttime feed and snuggles. A few nice items up out the way for safe keeping and the whole apartment was child friendly, this was the week he established walking so being able to safely explore was important. The lawn was well used and is a great space.
We had some wet days and some scorchers. We found plenty to do no matter the weather. We enjoyed the museum,soft playzone,beaches,local Swimming pool with wave machine and ran out of time to go bowling. Boscastle,tintagle,crackington haven & widemouthbay are all a short senic drive away.
The apartments location is a beautiful 20 walk (that only feels like 10 even when pushing a pram) from crooklets beach. We found some great places to eat. Tommy jacks was a favorite of ours, the barman had only been there a few weeks and he was fantastic. The lifes a beach restaurant has amazing seafood.
The owners have thought of everything to help you enjoy your stay even down to beach towels and a bucket and spade.
If you're looking for a convenient location in a clean practical more than well equipt apartment, which has a lovely cosy feel to relax in the evenings. This is it.

The owners were very helpfull, their direction made it prity easy to find. There compimentary cream scones were very welcoming.
The flat was very clean and every thing was in very good order, the beds were very comfotable. the owners even provided some games and toy for children along with some books and dvd's.
The wi-fi speed was good and their is a shared laundry should you need it.
The town is only a 10 to 15 minute walk depending on your speed (not very fast) with one of the supermarkets being the first thing you come to which was very handy, with two others on the far side of town.
We only had a week would have liked to have been able to spend longer their in order to explore more of the area and its history.
Would definately like to return when possible.

Stayed here 1st week in October every thing about the apartment met our expectations & more. It's modern clean spacious & very well equipped with everything you need & more. Good broadband speed dvds books information leaflets on tbe area. Very comfortable bed . Nice quiet location down a lane about 15 mins walk to bude. Took our 2 dog's & found bude & surrounding areas to be very dog friendly including beaches pubs & restaurants. The cream tea was a very welcome surprise after a long drive. Will definitely return to sea ayr.

“Excellent ground floor apartment”
Reviewed 26 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We loved staying here, to start with the owner had left us a cream tea, so that was a lovely start :-)

It's down a very quiet lane, it's best approached from Bude Town centre - I'd recommend not letting your satnav take you via the back route from the A39 - it's very narrow in places and has one steep part. The lane that it's situated on is fine though.

It's a short walk to Northcott Mouth beach via the lanes , from there you're one the coast path, I did the loop into Bude, and then back up to Sea-Ayr.

The apartment must have been rennovated very lately - it's all up to a good modern standard. The broadband even seemed a good speed.

Bude itself is lovely - plenty of non-chain shops, although the Sainsburys is very handy

Sea-Ayr is on our list to revisit.

The apartment was well eqipped and close to town (20 mins walk) and beaches (10 mins), everything as described on the website. It proved to be a brilliant base for the Hartland Penninsula, and, if we had had another 2 weeks, to the middle area of Cornwall too! We visited Lundy, Docton Mill, Hartland Abbey, galleries in Bideford and Hartland, Hartland Point and Quay, had an art fusion classs in Bude (twice), RELAXED. It proved not to be a holiday where you wanted to get back home, more one you wanted to get home because you had achieved "laid back". Incredibly friendly people, they weren't selling you something, they shared what they had. Someone said, "you don't visit Bude once", i can inderstand why.
