About Marilyn smith

Our Cottages are a few minutes walk from the Ancient Market Town of Stratton with local shop,hairdresser , Post Office and two Public houses the Kings Arms and The Tree Inn both of which serve good food. The famous seaside town of Bude is 2miles drive away, with Summerleaze Beach being sandy and great for building sand castles, Crooklets Beach also sandy, but good for rock pooling and catching the odd crab or two. You could even take surfing lessons. Widemouth Beach great for surfing. All three are safely watched by lifeguards and are very helpful.

Marilyn smith purchased this cottage in 1980

Why Marilyn smith chose Bude-Stratton

Howard Holidays is a family run business. My name is Marilyn and my husband is John, we converted our barns back in 2000 since then they have had many changes and upgrades. We maintain them ourselves and live on site, so if anything is needed we are here to help.

Cottage was clean and tidy but did smell of damp and the bed was so uncomfortable

  • 2 of 5

Hostess was very welcoming on arrival and the cottage was clean and tidy and we were supplied with tea, coffee, milk which was a nice touch. The cottage smelt of damp which was off putting and the majority of the decour was very dated. Weather was awful and we ended up leaving a day early. The bed was very uncomfortable which meant neither of us slept well so batteries definitely have not been re-charged!!

Really lovely cottage, well maintained, clean and good facilities.

  • 4 of 5

We can't fault the cottage at all, tea, coffee, sugar and milk were provided for our arrival which was much appreciated after a 4 hour journey with a toddler.

Unfortunately on the Saturday and Sunday nights we had very noisy neighbours move into the other cottage which kept us up until the early hours and really disturbed the sleep of our little one, but the cottage itself and location we were really happy with.

Lovely cottage in great location

I had a great 3 night stay in Squirrel Cottage. Very good location for visiting North Cornwall and Hartland. The cottage was very comfortable with everything you need and the tea, coffee, milk and biscuits provided were very welcome. Many thanks Marilyn!

Alles was man braucht - Vermieter sehr Warmherzig und Freundlich

  • 5 of 5

(Hausnummer 2) Kleine, gemütliche und saubere Ferienwohnung.

Die Vermieter sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.

Ideal für uns als Familie mit 2 Kindern (3 und 4 Jahre alt).

Von Bude aus waren alle interessanten Sehenswürdigkeiten

unkompliziert zu erreichen, auch Bude selbst mit seinen mehreren

Stränden ist immer einen Ausflug wert.

Wir sind immer noch begeistert und waren sicher

nicht das letzte mal in Cornwall.
