This was our second visit to the house having had such a great experience when we stayed last year. It provided a great home for our two energetic dogs whilst also being very child friendly for the toddler in our party. On both occasions the owner has provided everything that we required for a comfortable stay and we felt very at home.
It was a great base for dog walking without the need to take the car out every time and is within easy walking distance of the beaches for sand castle days. We hope to be returning again in the future for another stay.
This is a truly marvelous home, beautifully appointed and the friendly owners have made sure that you want for nothing during your stay.
As previous owners of a holiday home ourselves we understand the effort that goes into presenting a property of this standard and the owners do a fabulous job.
The home itself is very spacious with beautiful outside areas including an elevated decked seating area and barbecue area.
The setting for the home is lovely and an easy walk into Bude or the beach and with a Morrisons supermarket and other stores no more than a 2 minute drive away.
It is also handily placed for drives out to Newquay, Port Isaac, Padstow, Tintagel, Boscastle and others.
This was a first holiday with our 8 month old first grandson and everyone had a fabulous time in a tremendous setting.
Thankyou very much.
From the minute we opened the garden gate we knew it would be a lovely holiday home. The garden is completely safe for dogs which, to us, is a priority, but also very good for us human types! The house is an amazing holiday home. So light and spacious. We had great fun on the Table Football. Cheryl the owner was delightful and had a few lovely treats for us but I wont ruin the surprise! I would happily return to Faraway and recommend it to my family and friends.
What a wonderful holiday we had, house spotless and so lovely, very spacious , wonderful countryside views from 3 of the bedrooms, lovely open plan downstairs, garden Lovely with plenty seating/ sun bathing area with handy outside shower.
Ideal location for a lovely 15 walk to bude via canal. Plenty of shops, cafes, pubs, restaurants . Summer leaze beach is fabulous with lovely cafe/bistro( life's a beach- sandwiches are lovely), pretty beach huts and a great sea pool with is safe for children to swim in. Dogs are also allowed on beach( on leads) which was a big plus for us. A very clean beach.
Would recommend to others
Very friendly owners and a welcome pack of scones,jam,cream, flowers, coffee , washing up , hand soaps etc was such a lovely touch.
Although we had seen the photos arriving at the house it was far more than we expected, clean,modern, spacious, homely,we couldn't have asked for anything more (although our husbands thought a hot tub would be perfect to finish it off ) Great location for taking a short walk into Bude. The travel company and owner were very friendly and helpful, even one hour after check out they called to inform us the cleaners had found our camera, luckily other family members who had stayed local were able to collect it for us.
A really wonderful house equipped with everything you could need and more. Comfy beds, plenty of comfortable garden furniture and only a short walk to Bude. Loads of space for 2 adults and 5 teenagers (who made full use of the games cupboard!) A warm welcome from the owner and the thoughtful welcome gifts made it the perfect place to stay. Would thoroughly recommend.
Absolutely stunning property in a beautiful location. Large, spacious and with all amenities. Could possibly do with a few more large dinner plates to avoid having the dishwasher on twice a day........a necessity when there are 7 people in the house (4 adults, 3 children). Lovely garden with plenty of space for the kids and dog to run about, as well as for the adults to relax. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds were really comfortable, with top quality furnishings throughout. Cannot fault the interior at all and the local artwork in all areas of the house was just lovely. It was a nice touch to have a couple of bottles of wine, a cream tea, milk, tea and coffee all there for our arrival........as well as the provision of dishwasher tablets and soap in all shower rooms. A short walk into the town was an added bonus, with plenty on offer from shops, bars, restaurants etc. A visit to The Brendon Arms is a must. As for the beach, it was so nice. Kids loved the sea pool and now have an added interest in body boarding. Loads of places to visit that are just a short drive away, but, quite honestly, 2weeks just wasn't long enough.
All in all, can't wait to go back!!!
