Arden House - charming and perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Arden House is a spacious and well appointed holiday home in a superb location. Take the footpath across the golf course for an easy walk into Bude town centre, or its only a 10 minute walk down to Crooklets Beach with access to the beaches, sea pool and coastal paths. The kitchen is huge and all the rooms and bedrooms are furnished and equipped to a high standard. The downstairs toilet and shower room was great when arriving back from having been in the sea and on the beach, with a lovely garden for the dogs to play in when not out for walks. We have already booked for next year!

Charming family home

  • 4 of 5

Arden House is a traditional house retaining many original features which nevertheless provides a modern family space to enjoy a relaxed holiday. The downstairs living space provides a large area for families to play together or find a corner to have a quiet time. The second sitting room for the children is a real boon. The upstairs layout is delightful and again provides a lovely family space. The large kitchen is a real bonus for happy noisy families. As with all the properties we have had with Elite West (this was our 5th year) the situation is superb to enjoy all the the lovely town of Bude can offer. We have already booked for next year!

How the other half live.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property with all mod cons, homely, comfortable and extremely well equipped. After a week sleeping in the master bedroom I now realise that I need a new bed! The whole house and location are perfect.

Wonderful Cornwal, wonderful Arden House!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful 2 weeks in Arden House in Bude, Cornwall. We stayed in the house with 7 adults and there was room enough for everyone! All the rooms are lovely, the big kitchen is great for cooking/eating with a large group. The views from the master bedroom are spectacular! The Bude beaches are great for surfing, sunbathing, rockpooling etc. Bude is a lovely town. Cornwall is sensational. We will definitely be back!

Fantastic family accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Arden House for Whit. There were four adults and four children and the house was spacious enough for all. We had everything we needed and items were of good quality, especially crockery and pans which can sometimes be a let down in holiday rentals. The property was really clean, nicely decorated and was very comfortable.

The house is in a great location, quiet but only a short walk both to the beach and the town centre. You can easily walk to both beaches but with the amount of beach stuff we had it was easier to pack up the car.

We went to Summerleaze, Widemouth and Sandymouth beaches and they were all fab and the kids spent most of the time with their boogie boards(wetsuits a must at the end of May!)

We would recommend day trips to Padstow and Clovelly if it's not beach weather and the Bush Inn a couple of miles away has good food in a beautiful setting. In Bude there are plenty of pasty shops and ice-cream places and is good for a little wander. There are two supermarkets close by for everything you need.

Overall Arden house is one of the best places in England we have stayed and I would highly recommend booking accommodation through Elite West holidays who were responsive and professional.

We had loads of fresh sea air and It was great watching the kids on the beach and forgetting the computer games for a week! We intend to return to Bude again next year.

This is our second visit to Arden House (our first being in March 2010) and we were all still totally smitten with this beautiful family home. It has everything going for it - the house is excellently maintained, beautifully clean and has everything you need and more. The master bedroom is amazing and is bright and spacious with a great en-suite bathroom and the downstairs rooms are excellent for all the family, as there is plenty of space to spread about. It is in a great location with great views of the golf course, access to the shops and only a 5-10 minute walk to the beach.

All the information provided by Elite West Holidays was really useful to and is obviously updated regularly, as we have now holidayed with them 4 times since 2009 and have relied on this information each time to guide us to the current best places to eat, etc.

I would have no problem recommending this house or Elite West Holidays to a friend or relative and to emphasis the point in August we are due to spend our 5th holiday in Bude organised through Elite West Holidays.

We have an arrangement with the local Links course, Bude and North Cornwall, for our guests and there are good courses at nearby Holsworthy, St Enedoc and the Jack Nicklaus designed St Mellion. Widemouth Bay is considered one of the best surfing beaches in the area and we can arrange lessons for beginners and improver's. Bude has two superb beaches, Summerleaze and Crooklets, both ideal for bathing and surfing and Bude has one of the few remaining sea pools in the country which is perfect for youngsters when the waves are a little fierce. Lifeguards patrol most beaches and the pool throughout the summer months. There are outdoor pursuit centres, tennis, squash, horse riding and more
