We provide quality assured self-catering holiday accommodation near Bude in the heart of rural North Cornwall. Our cottages are situated just 3 miles from the beach and 4 miles from Bude, close to the Atlantic Highway, which runs along the North Cornwall coast.

The cottages were converted from the original barns situated around the traditional farm yard and have all undergone further extensive renovation in recent years. Carthouse sleeps 2 people, while Wagtail and Swallow each accommodate 4 people. Wagtail has 1 double and 1 twin bedroom, Swallow has 2 double bedrooms. In each cottage guests have the option of choosing either a king size or twin beds in the master bedroom.

Interaction with guests
We used to stay in holiday cottages in Cornwall with our children when they were younger and came to love this part of the world so much we moved here. So as well as living here we have a pretty good understanding of what visitors want and a very good knowledge of the best places to go, things to do and just as importantly what to avoid ! We live alongside the cottages in the old farmhouse but try and adopt as discreet a style as possible - we're there to help and advise at arms length ! We are a small family run friendly business and our aim is to help you get the most from your holiday. The fact that so many of our guests return is, we hope, an indication that for most of the time we are getting something right ! We hope to see you soon.

Reviewed April 14, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Budds Barns is located in a pocket of beautiful Cornish countryside. Totally relaxing and away from the everyday humdrum of our usual hectic lives. We stayed in Swallow Barn and it was cozy, clean (in fact spotless!) with stunning views. We were greeted by Gerry who made us feel at home instantly.
Being only a few miles away from Bude and Widemouth Bay it is not too secluded but secluded enough to be away from the hustle and bustle of crowds and traffic. Our only regret is we didn't bring the dog because for dog owners this is the ideal place. They even have information on all the dog friendly beaches nearby!!

Management response:

Hi So glad you liked the cottage. delighted you thought the cottage was spotless, we strive for that for every guest. We would love to welcome you back along with your dog anytime. Gerry and Andy Gillies

A lovely cottage which was spotlessly clean, very well fitted out and in a beautiful setting. We stayed in 'Swallow' which had a lovely view across rolling countryside, with a relaxed tranquil ambience. Very friendly and helpful owners, though not in any way intrusive. In a quiet location, but very easy to travel around and also in a very good location for touring the area. Though we had no pets, the properties are dog friendly. Highly recommended and a very reasonable tariff.
