This stunning property is perfectly placed just three miles from the beautiful beach at Duckpool, and has been purposely furnished to provide everything needed for a fun filled yet relaxed family holiday.

This serene and spacious detached country house on the Devon/Cornwall border sleeps ten and three dogs, making it the perfect choice for two families sharing or big gatherings. If you, your family and your four-legged friends love beach walks, pretty countryside and cosy pubs, it’ll be just perfect. The house has a big garden with lots of space for active kids and dogs to play, and easy access to the renowned South West Coast path, for endless clifftop and sandy beach walks.

Inside, the house is as elegant as it is roomy. There are two cosy lounges, each with its own character, and both with wood burners for the dogs to curl up in front of after a hard day's stick-chasing. There are two eating spaces too: a formal dining room for long nights catching up over dinner, and a breakfast room where you can plan your day over your morning coffee. The kitchen is spacious, with a range cooker that can easily handle meals for ten, and a separate utility room where you can get muddy paws cleaned up. There are five bedrooms, each sleeping two, and four bathrooms. The house’s large, green lawn surrounds it, and there’s a patio with garden furniture and a gas BBQ. There’s also a games room separate from the house, with its own snooker table.

The house is 3 miles from the remote Duckpool beach, where the kids can play in the rock pools while the dogs run on the sand. The South West Coast Path leads to more rugged and wild beaches and cliffs in both directions, perfect for long walks that everyone will love, no matter how many legs they have. The resort of Bude, a favourite with surfers and with a fabulous dog-friendly beach, is 7 miles away.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • 5 bedrooms - 3 king-size, 2 twins (which can be made up as a super-king-size on request) with an additional 2 child size hotel style occasional beds in the twin bedroom on the first floor, adjacent to the family bathroom

A good place for making memories for all ages. If you love walking and being away from the crowds this is the place to stay. Roomy but cosy with all the facilities needed to cater for families or friends. Thank you to Helen and team for being on the end of the phone when we had any queries and the high standard of cleanliness at St David's.

A fabulous place to stay. Ideal for large groups as there is plenty of space. Exceptionally well equipped kitchen. The games room is a real bonus. It is a bit off the beaten track so ensure you take some food with you. Having said that we all had a wonderful week there and on the plus side it is a down hill walk back from the local pub!

Beautiful well equiped house. In a beautiful location although not particularly close to much in the way of ammenities. Or the attractions of Cornwall. But with a well equiped games room that meant we enjoyed or time there despite choosing a wet n windy week.

Just as advertised. there were 10 of us adults and children and there was plenty for us all to do. As there is no little shop just up the road it was worth getting a shop delivered by the local supermarket but appart from that it was amazing. Would not hesitate to go again or to recommend.
