Occupying a dramatic location just to the south of Bude and to the north of Widemouth Bay, Headland Studio is an annex adjoining the owner's house in this amazing cliff top position. The property has direct access to the coastal footpath from the garden and a nearby cliff footpath leads down to Upton beach. Upton beach is a shingle beach under the cliff with a multitude of rocks with rock pools to explore as the tide drops down and then from mid to low tide a sandy section is exposed. The beach does not have a lifeguard but it is fabulous for surfing in the right conditions. If you prefer a lifeguard beach, Widemouth Bay or Summerleaze Beach in Bude are both nearby sandy beaches. The coastal footpath is absolutely spectacular in this part of Cornwall and the cliffs south towards Crackington Haven from Widemouth Bay are as dramatic as anything else found in Cornwall.
Headland Studio itself adjoins the owner's house. The entrance is to the studio room with its well equipped kitchen, dining area, 2 leather sofas and double bed. There are views along the coast from the large window and sunsets can be spectacular. The studio is perfect for either a couple or a family with children. Please be aware that there is a shower cubicle which opens into the living space, however a privacy screen is provided. There is a separate WC.
Ground Floor only: The entrance leads into the studio room with kitchen / dining / sitting area and a 4'6" double bed. There is also a shower cubicle accessed from the living area with a privacy screen if required. There is a separate WC. To the side is a separate bunk room with 3' wide beds.
Exterior: The enclosed garden is shared with the owners and therefore, if you have a dog, it must be kept on a lead within the garden area. There is access directly to the coastal footpath. There is an external table and a really useful outside shower which is perfect for rinsing off after a visit to the beach.

Bude is a popular resort for families and surfers, boasting spectacular sandy beaches and some of the best waves in the county. The town, located close to the border with Devon, is filled with shops, restaurants, pubs and even a local theatre.
Bude is Cornwall's most northern town and has been a favourite seaside resort since Victorian times. The coastal scenery surrounding the beaches of Bude are quite beautiful. There is a huge amount of bird life for the dedicated twitcher and some wonderful walks along the cliff tops. Along the coast is Sandy Mouth which is ideal for families due to its lovely sand and numerous rock pools. Morwenstow, which is a little further towards Devon is just south of Henna Cliff. The cliff is the highest in Cornwall and has a sheer drop down to the sea. From here you can see across to South Wales. The centre of Bude has a theatre, concerts, dances and fetes, as well as other events throughout the season. There is a new Visitors Centre in the Crescent car park which has an extensive display by the North Cornwall Heritage Coast and Countryside Service including a children's area. There is a weekly Cornish Furry Dance and an annual Carnival Week. Bude is also home to a popular jazz festival which takes place every year in August.
Widemouth Bay is a varied and interesting beach with a long open bay. At the northerly end of Widemouth there is a large sandy area that becomes more exposed as the tide drops and to either side of this the sand gives way to some fantastic rock formations. The beach is ideal for families, whether you wish to swim, sunbathe, surf or hunt for marine life in the hundreds of rock pools. Lifeguards are present during the season. These are some of the best beaches in Cornwall so don't miss the chance to try your surfing or 'boogie' boarding skills. There are a number of surf schools in the area. For Walkers and Cyclists the area is full of superb routes. There are numerous local villages and landmarks to explore and much of the area is a nature lovers paradise.
Crackington Haven, a little further west, is on one of the most dramatic stretches of coastline in North Cornwall. The village itself is located in a very narrow valley with steep sides leading to a beach where beautiful sand is exposed at low tide. The beach is popular with surfers and the surrounding coastline is a huge draw for walkers. The cliffs are not only dramatic, but are also geologically fascinating. Immediately north of the beach is Pencarrow Point and a few hundred yards south is Cambeak headland. One mile south of Crackington Haven, High Cliff rises to 735 feet (224 m) with a sheer drop to the rocky foreshore. The village has a couple of lovely tea rooms and a popular pub. The surrounding area has beautiful countryside and nearby Bude has a full range of shops, pubs & restaurants. There are a whole range of beaches within a few miles drive along the coast as well. The landscape rises dramatically to the south onto the moors with more superb walking to be had - it really is a lovely place to visit and explore!
Guest from Gerrards Cross stayed for 7 nights.
Headland studio was ideal for our relaxing week in Bude. The accomodation, communication and hospitality from the owners was excellent. We enjoyed a cream tea on arrival, the kitchen area was very well equipped, the towels & bed linen were very good, the bed fairly comfortable (we prefer a firmer mattress), and we had no problem with the shower being in the lounge area, because we used the small bunk bed bedroom as a dressing room. The view is to die for, opening the blinds in the morning was heaven and equally watching the sunset of an evening! Our privacy was respected at all times, by the owners, their well behaved dogs and very polite children! We enjoyed the 30 minute walk, from Headland Studio, into Bude along the coastal path a few times and Elements restaurant is only a 5 minute walk in the opposite direction for an excellent meal. Prompted by the complimentary toiletries in the studio, we also paid a visit to St Kitts Herbery. Headland studio definitely suited our needs and was the best accomodation in Bude that we have experienced!
Guest from Sandbach stayed for 7 nights.
We had a great week in the cottage. The views are stunning and it's literally 20 seconds from the coastal path. The cottage is clean, warm and provides everything that is needed for a beach or walking holiday. Happily recommend the cottage if asked.
Guest from Newent stayed for 4 nights.
What more could you ask for? The location was excellent. Emma and Kalvin were extremely welcoming and always on hand to answer any quieries that we had. They even left us home made scones to enjoy. They have great local knowledge too for anybody that doesn't know the area very well. The Studio was spotless and modern with every facility you need. Netflix for the rainy days, and an area to dry your wetsuits on the sunny days. Unfortunately we got a little unlucky with the weather during our stay, but that won't stop us booking this property again in the future
Guest from Doncaster stayed for 7 nights.
The Headland Studio has been fitted out to a really high standard and everything works as it should. Kalvin and Emma are excellent hosts (and genuinely nice people who went out of their way to make us feel welcome and to make sure our stay was perfect). They also gave us great info on the surrounding areas, what we might do and where we could visit. The view from this property is awesome and a real selling point - perched on the edge of a cliff, right on the coastal path. Would we go back again???...ABSOLUTELY!!!!!!!
