About Tilly Peck

Who We Are:

We first came on holiday to Cornwall as children back in the 1960s. Returning for a holiday with our grown up children a few years' ago, our love for Cornwall was re-kindled. Since then we have returned many times. Our visits have largely been spent walking the spectacular coastal path (usually in glorious sunshine, but sometimes in lashing rain!). Last year we determined that we wanted to spend more time down here and felt it made sense to find a permanent base. Hideaway House is just perfect for us. We spend as much time as we can at Hideaway House and hope one day to live here permanently. In the meantime, we are happy to share our home so that others can also enjoy this beautiful part of North Cornwall.

Why Tilly Peck chose Marhamchurch

We fell in love again with the North Cornish coast five year's ago. Rugged and largely unspoilt, it offers spectacular walking and great surfing. As you will discover, Bude, with all its amenities (supermarkets, leisure centre, surf schools,open air sea pool, good restaurants etc.) is just 5 minutes away by car (60 mins on foot and 20 mins by bicycle (cycle path) as is the beautiful beach of Widemouth Bay, but at the same time Hideaway enjoys privacy, tranquility and breathtaking views over the rolling Cornish countryside. So, the less energetic can relax and soak up the amazing panoramic views. It's perfect for family and friends. We hope you enjoy Hideaway House as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

Hideaway House is perfecly located as it enjoys privacy and tranquility whilst being a stone's throw from the heart of Marhamchurch village. Bude and the beaches are easily accessible either by car or on foot. The view from Hideaway House is spectacular!

We offer free 7KW charging for Tesla and non-Telsa electric vehicles.

Perfect house in the most beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this house, we have a one year old and three year old and everything was thought of for them. From the stairgate to the toys, knowing the kids were happy and occupied meant we could relax and enjoy our holiday. The view is amazing, the location is great as there is a play park and pub within walking distance and Bude just a few minutes drive away. The inclusion of the beach hut was so good and meant we could enjoy the beach easily with the kids.

We wouldn't change a thing and definitely hope to be back!

This property suited our family down to the ground. We loved the open plan living and the size of the bedrooms but, most of all, the amazing view - just couldn't take our eyes off it. We were happy just to stay at the house and relax. We were lucky to have good weather so were able to make the most of the garden and dining outside. We all enjoyed the table tennis and the kids loved the Sonos sound system. Will definitely look at coming back sometime.

Love this property. Fabulous views and great location in a lovely village. Handy pub (the bullers arms) within easy walking distance serving delicious food. We love Bude and will hopefully be returning next year.

Fantastic house and location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely house for a week in June. We were a family of six with ages ranging from 19 to 81. The house was so well presented that we all felt settled immediately. I was impressed with the little things like liquid soap in every bathroom and kitchen, washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets and not just a loo roll in each bathroom but at least a couple of spare ones too! The views were fantastic at the rear of the property and we enjoyed a couple of lovely bbq's taking in the scenery. Bude was also a pleasant surprise with some lovely shops and places to eat. The walk from the house into Bude along the canal is beautiful. I think this was one of the few times we have been away in the U K and not been ready for home! Would thoroughly recommend.

Widemouth Bay (50 minute walk)
Car: recommended


- The nearest beach is at Widemouth Bay ( 6 minutes by car, 50 minute brisk walk), a very long, open bay popular with families and surfers and with hundreds of rock pools to explore at low tide. Widemouth Bay offers fantastic conditions to learn surfing or body-boarding which is why many of the local surf schools are based there. It has also received the Blue Flag Beach Award 2017.

- There are really so many beaches, catering for every taste. All are surfable given the right conditions.

- At low tide it is possible to walk 1.3 miles along the beach from Sandymouth (a popular but unspoilt beach of pebbles and sand backed by incredible twisted cliffs) via Northcott Mouth (a small rocky beach opening up to expansive sand and rock pools as the tide drops) to the beaches of Crooklets and Summerleaze (close to the town of Bude)


This area is a walkers' paradise!

- The South West Coastal Path is a 50 minute walk from Hideaway House.

- There are plenty of coastal walks as well as walks in the beautiful rolling Cornish countryside.

- From Hideaway House it is possible to walk along Bude Canal into the town of Bude or Summerleaze Beach (about an hour). Alternatively you can walk across the fields to Widemouth Bay (about 50 minutes) and from there along the coastal path to Bude. Another fabulous walk is along the The Planekeepers Path. This is a 10 mile circular route following the course of the Bude Canal through the charming village of Marhamchurch, returning to Bude via Stratton.

- Slightly further afield there is extensive walking around Polzeath (The Cracking Crab do great scallops), Boscastle and Tintagel.


The Ash brothers (Reubyn and Joss) are from Widemouth Bay, Bude. The Bude area is renowned for it's uncrowded mellow peaks, and gnarley reef spots. Stay local, or choose to explore the most consistent and varied surf in the UK on your doorstep.


- A gentle roll down Helebridge Road brings you to a quiet, family friendly off road cycle track into Bude. Stop at The Weir on the way back for a cream tea.

- Hop onto the Tamar Trail at Bideford. It’s a 40 mins drive from Bude. Leafy and shaded, it’s ideal in summer for all ages.

- Alternatively the Camel Trail at Wadebridge is a 40 mins drive. It hugs the Camel Estuary giving truly spectacular estuary views, and the reward of Rick Stein’s fish and chips when you arrive in Padstow. Again ideal for all ages.

- Cycle hire shops abound in Bude, Bideford, Padstow and Wadebridge if necessary.

Eating and Drinking

-The local pub, The Bullers Arms is a 5 minute walk. The Sunday carvery is a must.

-Bude has many good quality restaurants supporting a variety of cuisines. Our current favourites are Life’s a Beach (fish), Elements (Italian) and The Olive Tree (Contemporary).

-Further afield, Bude is ideally located to explore the culinary hotspot of Padstow. Rick Stein's The Seafood Restaurant is worthy of a visit (the cookery school is a great out-of-season experience) as is Paul Ainsworth at Number 6. Alternatives include Restaurant Nathan Outlaw at Port Isaac or James Nathan's restaurant at St Enodoc Hotel, Rock.

Heritage and Gardens

- Landhydrock is a classic example of a Victorian country house and estate. The gardens show their beauty at different stages of the year with Rhododendrons in April being a particular highlight. National trust quality food and service too. A 45 minute drive.

- Rosemoor gardens are a 45 minute drive. Lush and serene and absolutely wonderful, complemented by a great cafe.
