                                                              Our expectations were surpassed. The Getaway was the perfect place to stay in Bude and I would strongly recommend it to anyone. We arrived to find a really lovely place with everything that you could possibly need at the seaside in Cornwall. Apart from the sea view, there were comfy beds, comfy sofas, bay window seating, and a great kitchen.....I want it! Its also very spacious. Our 84 year old grandmother also loved the porchway which was like a sunroom, and she spent several hours in there just enjoying it all.The bathrooms were also really lovely with bath and overhead shower in the main family bathroom and separate shower in the en-suite. There was also shower soap and hair conditioner which was totally unexpected. Our hosts were also very thoughtful. As a family with gluten free dietary needs, we also arrived to find a gluten-free take on the classic Cornish cream tea with a home-made Victoria sponge complete with loads of cream which was really delicious. One of the many activities that you can do in Bude is to surf, and this property also provided an outdoor hanging space for wetsuits, and outdoor shower by the back door (which was warm) to get the sand off. I really don't think that anything was missing at the Getaway. This is definitely the place to stay in Bude.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              We are delighted you enjoyed staying at The Getaway, and are so pleased your grandmother had a good time using the porch/Sun room. It does get lovely and warm when the sun shines.

                                                              We hope you'll return soon.

                                                              The Getaway - all you need to pack is your toothbrush!

                                                              We were greeted with a Cornish cream tea and breakfast for the next day in the fridge!

                                                              The apartment is beautifully designed and decorated. It is very well equipped with everything you need down to the gorgeous shampoo and conditioner in every bathroom, books and board games in the lounge and a very well equipped kitchen.

                                                              The view is superb and the location is central.

                                                              I highly recommend The Getaway. A fabulous place to stay.

                                                              Stunning property in magical location!

                                                              My family and I had a wonderful stay in this stunning property which comes fully equipped with anything you might need. Incredibly cosy, perfect for whiling away time on a rainy day. Sainsburys is behind house, high street across the street and beach pretty much on your doorstep. Didn't need to step into a car the entire week's vacation. Lots of local eating options and friendly local community.

                                                              The perfect Getaway at Bude

                                                              The recently renovated house with modern appliances and generous rooms located in a prime location and close to all facilities is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday. The personalised welcome pack on our arrival was particularly welcome.

                                                              Absolutely perfect!!

                                                              From the first email exchange with Jules, everything was wonderful, we felt very special & taken care of. Attentions left for us everywhere, kids magazines & for Mummy & Daddy too! Breakfast in the fridge & the most amazing cream tea with fresh jams, cream, home made scones to welcome you! So many surprises full of kindness. We loved everything, the house is very big and superbly kitted, there was 5 of us and we were very comfortable. The location is amazing, Bude is a lovely little town and the sea is in front of the house, down the path.

                                                              Thank you so much for all the attention you have taken in designing & decorating the house.

                                                              Thank you so much Julie for all your help and tips, we had a wonderful time!!

                                                              We are so glad you had a great time at The Getaway. Thank you for your lovely review, it really gives us pleasure that another family has enjoyed all that Bude has to offer. We hope we'll see you again soon.

                                                              Should be called "The Perfect Getaway!"

                                                              I'm not usually a review writer but we could move into this place tomorrow! What a fantastic place to stay! Having been to Bude several times over the years I think our family have now found the perfect location to stay. You step outside to our favourite views over the beach and town. The accommodation itself has great attention to detail from the brand new furnishing to the outdoor surfer's storage/showers! My family walked in the front door, whilst I could use the side door to shower off the sand before entering the house and parking my board/suit in the utility drying room (very nice touch). The rooms are all spacious and spotlessly clean and have all the amenities you'll need. Whether you're surfers or a beach-going family (or both like us) then this is the place for you. Thank you Penny for our favourite stay in Cornwall yet. We'll definitely be coming back!


                                                              Bude, Cornwall, UK

                                                              Bude is a great destination for anyone. It has two beautiful beaches, Summerleaze and Crooklets, well known for surfing. There are rock pools to explore, and even a fabulous self filling sea pool. Beach huts can be hired through the Bude tourist centre. On both beaches there are toilet facilities and cafes. The town has plenty of seaside shops and even a small department store. It also boasts some wonderful restaurants, where visitors can sample Devon and Cornwall's local produce. The small castle is a landmark and houses a museum, an art gallery and a cafe with terrific views of Summerleaze Beach. Occasional events take place here. The Bude canal is a good place for fishing, taking out a pedalo or just strolling along. You can follow the canal for miles if you are a keen walker or cyclist. Golfers are catered for with the golf course that resides behind the beaches, within the town. There are plenty of walks or cycle routes in the surrounding area, with the dramatic Cornish coastline at your disposal. The SW coast path is on your doorstep and plenty of places to bird watch. Bude also has tennis courts, bowling and mini golf for those landlubbers that prefer to keep their feet on dry land! Devon and Cornwall are yours to explore, and days out to the many pretty towns and villages in these counties possible. Bude is a fabulous place to base yourself as we know having visited here for 27 years with friends and family. Happy memories are made here!
