About Bo Miles-Hobbs

I am Bo Miles-Hobbs, working mum of 4 children, living in Wiltshire with my husband, James. I care for old people in our local villages and help out with charity work, particularly Cancer Research UK.

Bo Miles-Hobbs purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Bo Miles-Hobbs chose Bude

Hele Mill Cottage is near where our friends' farm and where we spent many happy holidays at their parents' farmhouse B&B when our children were small. The cottage is tucked away up a quiet track in a sheltered valley with 2 others, but only half-a-mile from the Atlantic Highway, the main coast road. The North Cornwall coastline is rugged and windswept, with surfing action all-year-round. There is a cycle path all the way into Bude, with no hills, so even very young children on bikes can handle it.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is an old whitewashed converted mill barn, with 3 bedrooms upstairs, sleeping up to 7, and kitchen/dining room downstairs with a cosy sitting room, with a great fireplace. It is 5 minutes from one of the best surfing beaches in Cornwall, Widemouth, and only 2 miles from Bude, with a big out-of-town Morrisons, swimming pool and 10 pin bowling and soft play centre. The cottage has a big garden with a large summerhouse, brilliant for summer evenings and BBQ's. It is even warm enough to sit out in on nice bright Spring and Autumn days, and has power from the cottage, so you can stay out there when it is getting dark. There is ample parking for 2-3 cars directly outside the cottage.
