The Fort

This delightful semi-detached cottage is in a fantastic position overlooking Bude Canal and just a few paces from the beach in the popular coastal town of Bude. For traditional fun-filled family holidays, where every day is a lazy day spent on the beach, this delightfully quirky house could not be better situated, with the wonderful extensive sands of Summerleaze directly opposite and just one-minute walk away. Arriving at the cottage, the whole family will be in a rush to get onto the beach, but take a while to appreciate the charming way that the owners have designed this lovely house with your comfort in mind that makes it light and spacious yet cosy and welcoming. On the ground floor there is a really spacious sitting room with views to remember. A well-designed kitchen with dining area boasts a skylight which lets the light flood in. Upstairs, the three comfortable bedrooms make the most of the views, perfect to wake up to. From the twin bedroom there is a small sun room, a lovely quiet spot to relax at any time of day. Outside is a garage with table tennis to keep everyone entertained even on rainy days. Bude, named the Best UK Coastal Resort in the British Travel Awards 2015, offers everything you would expect from a small seaside town deserving this accolade. Summerleaze Beach where you will find yourself being drawn to each and every day has a tremendous range of activities for all the family, including the must-visit sheltered sea water pool, ideal for the young ones. All in all, The Fort offers a holiday you will remember and one to enjoy at any time of the year.
