My wife and I stayed here over our wedding anniversary weekend. Jan the owner was lovely- very accommodating, friendly, fun and the B&B is in a great location for the beach and town. She even left wine, chocolate and flowers in the room as it was our anniversary. Breakfast was also excellent and cured the post Bude night out head.

The rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfast is excellent. We have always liked the peaceful resort of Bude with... More

Breakfast was yum, help yourself to cereals fruit etc, then order cooked, plentiful breakfast. Free parking on road outside. Good views over golf course too. If Jan doesn't answer door or phone...

Cheerful and friendly service. The rooms were clean, comfortable and nicely equipped. Good breakfast with a large selection of fruit. A great location for the beach and easy walking distance to shops and restaurants. We would certainly come back.
