Literally in a cliff top location with the coastal footpath running along the side of the garden, this stunningly presented studio sits above a dramatic beach with sand and surf from mid to low tide between Bude and Widemouth Bay.

Property Details

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.

Accommodation
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.

Facilities & Services
Heating is via electric central heating. The kitchen is well equipped with an electric oven and hob, a microwave, toaster, kettle, a fridge (Note - no freezer compartment) and washing machine. A Nespresso machine is available for your use and an initial supply of capsules is provided. The studio room has a digital TV which includes access to Netflix. There is an iron & ironing board.

Miscellaneous
Electricity, heating, bed linen and towels are all included but you will need to provide your own beach towels. There is parking available on the shared drive immediately outside. One well behaved dog will be permitted at the additional cost of £30 per week/short stay although please remember that you cannot leave a dog unattended in the property alone. Strictly no smoking is allowed.

Short breaks are available during quieter periods.
£100 pre-authorised to your credit or debit card as a security deposit is required.

Property Location


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!

This place is a gem!

The Studio was absolutely perfect as a base to explore Bude and its surroundings. The location on the clifftops right adjacent to the coastal walk was breathtaking and the views simply stunning. The Studio was exactly as described and I'd love to be back!

Return Visit

This was our second stay at Headland Studio Bude. Despite the cold and stormy weather, the studio was well-heated and cosy. Although small, the studio has everything you need for and is perfectly placed for popping into Bude, either by car or a quick walk along the coastal path to admire the scenery which is stunning whatever the weather. We love it here and hope to be back before too long.

Relaxing week in the headland studio. Ideal for couples I would say. All you need is there, it's cozy and great to be so close to the coast. Emma and Kalvin very helpful and friendly. Will definitely recommend to others.

Highly Recommended

We had a short stay at Headland Studio in early September. Although small, it has everything you need and is immaculately presented. The back gate opens onto the SW path and itA?s an easy walk down into the town centre with spectacular views or a slightly more energetic stretch up to Widemouth Bay. Even without leaving the property you can take in the breathtaking scenery and the garden is well-equipped. Emma was very welcoming and on hand if we needed anything. We loved our stay and hope to return before too long.

So much to do, not enough time!

Like many reviews, this is a little gem of a place, compact, quirky, and very unique. Very good use of the space available, and so much more fun than traditional accommodation types, we all loved it! Location is great, you can take a little stroll into Bude itself making the most of the local beaches and even catch a bus back to save the walk up hill, or take a bike ride along the coast to nearby beaches. The WiFi can be a bit hit and miss, but that really isn't an issue when you have such great views, the sunsets are amazing if lucky enough to dodge the sea mist at times. Already planning the next trip down!

Fantastic Studio with amazing views

We stayed for a week in this fab studio. The location was great only a 15 minute walk from Summerleaze beach. The studio was clean, modern and well equipped and perfect for couples or families with young children. The extra gifts for when you arrive are very thoughtful...scones, clotted cream, Cornish butter, jam, and shortbread biscuits. Calvin is a great host and gave out great advice in great local places to eat. Bude is a beautiful and the surf is great fun too. I look forward to coming again next year. Thanks so much.

A Bude-iful Getaway!

The headland studio is literally the last building atop the breathtaking cliffs. I deem the studio for its location alone already a must visit. Emma and Kalvin are the perfect hosts: very welcoming (the cream tea on arrival was heavenly, oh I still dream of these scones!), helping if you need something, providing good advice if you want to see something in the area, chatty if you feel like it. 'Cleanliness' above got only four starts out of five because we had to clean the washing machine (quite moldy in the soap compartment). Everything else was spotless! 'Comfort' above got only four out of five stars because there is hardly enough storage space for a longer stay (clothes and provisions). For two people not a problem since there is a second bedroom, but if you intend to use it as a family, it might get a little crammed. Space for cooking is a little limited as well (depending on what you cook, obviously). WiFi signal is a weak (since Bude is the end of the line) and doesn't work in the entire studio: the closer to the source in the main building the better. Furniture is very comfy and nights are quiet.

A very comfortable week in a great location

We enjoyed a very pleasant early autumn break in this very comfortable studio flat in a great location. Straight onto the cliff part from the garden, views over the sea from the flat and only a few minutes by car from Widemouth Bay beach (close enough to easily drive back in wetsuits after spending an hour bodyboarding). Although the studio format would give some limitations for a more than two despite the separate bedroom with bunks, it made a roomy and comfortable dwelling for two of us with all of the resources that we would need including good WiFi and an outside shower for wetsuits. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful, but we did not feel constrained by their proximity. Overall, a very enjoyable and relaxing week - it will certainly be on our list of possibilities for future holidays.

Great time, great place we will come back to.

We had a great stay at this cottage and everything was excellent. The owner was very nice and helpful on arrival and showed us around the studio and explained the operation of everything, which was a great help. Views out of the window were stunning. The location is also excellent for short walks to Bude (20-30 mins based on pace) and a bit less to the beach at Widemouth. You can also walk to Elements restaurant for excellent food (5min) and there are other bars and food outlets just beyond. We have no complaints and would highly recommend this studio.

Headland Studio has the best view ever! Cottage was very well equipped: very comfy bed, great shower, comfy sofas, tv and wifi and well equipped kitchen. Great location next to coastal path and very close to great beaches and lovely town of Bude. Lovely garden with outdoor furniture to enjoy the view. Owners Emma and Kalvin were very friendly and helpful and left us a welcome pack which included a lovely cream tea. Highly recommend! Dave and Kate from Paisley

Excellent Location, with stunning view

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!

The best in north Cornwall

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

Top week at the Headland Studio, Bude

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!!!!!!!
