Houndapitt Farm Cottages are located in the heart of the countryside, yet close to the sea. Just down the road is the spectacular beach at Sandymouth which is excellent for swimming or surfing and is patrolled by lifeguards during the season. At low tide the beach stretches all the way to Bude some three miles south with some amazing rock formations along the way! There are plenty of rock pools and the abundant sea-life will keep the children amused for hours.
Just to the north is another beach, Duckpool, which is located at the end of the beautiful Coombe Valley. In addition to the National Trust keeping the coast as nature intended, there are also some lovely walks through woodlands and countryside, inland, to the village of Kilkampton or along the coast path to Morwenstow and the Cornwall/Devon border.
"The Loveliest Peace of Cornwall" - the phrase aptly used to describe this part of North Cornwall - was adopted many years ago to summise the special nature of the area. Sir John Betjeman endorsed this by describing Bude as "the least rowdy modern seaside town in Cornwall". Today, this is as appropriate as ever it was.
The town was "born" with the arrival, in 1819, of the Canal, built to carry lime-rich sea sand to infertile, inland soils. However it was not until the arrival of the railway (now sadly departed) that Bude grew in size to become a popular Victorian resort. The town therefore owes its existence to Holidaymakers and to this end still provides a friendly Cornish welcome and boasts the top Tourist Information Centre in the South West!
Famed for its beaches, Bude has a wealth of other assets. Never too crowded, the town itself is divided by a magnificent 18-hole golf course and is flanked to the west by rolling downland on the cliff-tops which provide some excellent short walks as well as playing host to sporting activities such as pitch and putt, cricket and some superb "championship" grass tennis courts.
Within a few minutes drive of Bude are many more exciting places to visit. Pictureesque fishing villages like Port Isaac and Port Quin with their narrow winding streets, Boscastle's sheltered harbour and Tintagel's Arthurian legend and quaint old Post Office. Beautiful countryside walks with equally enchanting names such as the Valency Valley, St. Nectan's Glen and the Rocky Valley. North of Bude, Hartland and Clovelly are essential stops on most visitors itinerary.
Situated close to the Cornwall/Devon border, Houndapitt Farm Cottages are situated in an ideal location to explore this beautiful part of the Westcountry .
