Back garden: Sunny lawned garden adjoins farmland and has direct access to country paths. Picnic tables, loungers, parasol, barbeque. Views of sea, farmland and countryside.

Location and Activities
The property is just metres from the Coast Path, offering an unrivalled opportunity to walk in either direction along the cliffs and explore the stunning Cornish coast. It also has direct access to country walks heading inland across farmland to the Bude canal and beyond.


Some great beaches nearby (2 minute drive or 20 minute walk away): 2 family surf beaches with surf hire and summer life guards at Widemouth Bay and several beaches and a sea water swimming pool at Bude. Many other wonderful beaches further afield.


Other than its magnificent beach, Widemouth Bay has 2 beach café’s, a great local pub with restaurant, garden and sea views and a local shop selling freshly caught fish, crab and lobster. There is also a restaurant with a growing reputation situated a short walk from the property (5 min. along the coast path).

Bude is an attractive Cornish seaside town with a harbour and canal, a few café’s /restaurants (one in particular which we highly recommend), some good local produce suppliers (including organic) and 3 major supermarkets. There are 1 or 2 decent boutiques /clothes stores, several good ‘serious’ surf equipment suppliers and plenty of ‘bucket-and-spade’ type shops selling inexpensive beach/surf gear.

Please Note
1. The property is designed for 1 or 2 families or 2 - 3 couples.

2. Regret no pets allowed.

3. Although the property is on one level and therefore suitable for those with mobility difficulties, it is not wheelchair friendly due to a few steps at the front door and uneven ground in the garden.

From Bromley

We were very happy with the property it was exactly as shown on the website. Well designed and decorated and had all that we needed.


From Huntingdon

beautiful views of the coast and the seting sun, right out side our door step. Plenty to do in the local area with our 2 girls. Lots of child friendly places to eat.


From Sevenoaks

This is one of the best holiday accommodations we have stayed in. Everything was clean and well kept. The outside space is great, a hose out the back to wash out the wetsuits and decking out the front to watch the sunsets.


From Harpenden

If youre looking for peace and tranquility mixed with fantastic sunset views across the cliff tops and sea then this is the place to stay.
Cool whites surf inspired cottage and yet child friendly too. Beds are wonderously comfy.
For dismal wet weather days theres the milky way adventure park to keep the kids out of mischief.
Further a field some lovely pubs to be discovered on windy country roads.
The local people and owner are welcoming and friendly, offering genuine advice without intrusion.


From Glasgow

Chruch Races is a little piece of heaven that quite literally "sits" on the dramatic North Cornwall coastline. The property has been tastefully decorated with heavenly white-washed walls and floors along with contemporary, comfortable soft furnishings. Its a pleasure to wake up each morning in this lovely little property. A special mention goes to the wonderful master bedroom. What a mattress !!! -I slept so deeply for each night of our stay!! The owners have thought of everything - barbeque, plasma TV, outdoor furniture (front and back garden), CD player, fully equipped kitchen, DVD player & DVDs, hooks for surfwear....Its hard to fault the property - perhaps the only slight disappointment is the poor shower - its rather weak and dribbly - not great for those of us with long-hair! The sea view including the dramatic sunsets from the cottage are second to none - nothing quite like sitting in the front garden with a glass of wine watching the sunset!.You will definately require a car to explore the area - there is so much to see, wonderful walks, incredible beaches, dramatic landscapes, beautiful villages in cornwall and devon, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, tennis courts, great restaurants - we recommend Lifes a Beach in Bude for a great meal. I should say, the town of Bude itself (a pleasant 20-25 mins walk from the property) is great for shopping and eateries but its fair to say that it lacks the beauty of the nearby historical Tintagel as well as Port Issac, Boscastle and Padstow - to name a few. The convenient local shop in Widemouth Bay (approx 1 m from the property) sells great produce - Ive never bought such succulent chicken - delicious! All in all its a beautiful property in a stunning setting. Book now to recharge those batteries - this is a little gem!

We've had a great time this week. The weather was lovely and the accommodation perfect. Watching the sunset from the decking area at the front has ben a particular pleasure..............we're delighted that we chose Church Races. Jason & Alison and son, age 3 (June 2009).

......such a perfect setting for the D. family in Cornwall, and good weather to boot! We all enjoyed ourselves - the colourful carnival to start, body boarding, sailing, delicious Sunday lunch at the Bay View, beach days, and the perfect sunsets viewed from Church literary skills fail to do it justice! Mr and Mrs D. and family (August 2007)

'We wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay at Church Races. It was a lovely holiday home and in such a beautiful spot.' Ms S. (August 2008)
