For those colder winter days, there's a log burning stove, and underfloor heating to keep you nice and warm. Upstairs you'll find a very large ensuite bedroom with a superking size bed, seating area, and Juliette balcony looking out on to open fields. Downstairs there is a large shower room, just perfect for when you come off the beach. The kitchen has all the modern appliances and is very well equipped. Take a stroll along the canal or choose one of the four main beaches. The South West Coastal Path is just a mile away, and there are endless water sports to try out. More

About the neighbourhood
Poughill is a small village on the outskirts of Bude, with a local pub serving real ales and home cooked food. There are plenty of public foot paths for walkers, and horse riding oppportunities at the bottom of a private lane next to the property. Poughill has a few thatched properties and one building mentioned in the doomsday book, with a local church dating back to 14th century.
Getting around
A car is recommended to go further a field and explore, but not needed as the town is just a 10-15 minute walk away, the bus stop is just around the corner. The service operates on the hour every hour into Bude, and surrounding areas. The nearest beach is Northcott Mouth which is a 20 minute walk. Summerleaze and Crooklets beach are 5 minutes by car.
