Rooks is a splendid, spacious, thatched cottage, packed with character features, a large kitchen with an Aga emanating warmth, a lounge with double aspect wood burning stove, and wonderful quirky features throughout. Only a few miles inland from the spectacular north Cornwall coast around Crackington Haven. With this dramatic coastline and stunning countryside all round to explore, this really is a fantastic place to stay.

The beautiful thatched cottage offers guests the opportunity to relax, whilst being located close to beaches and all the outdoor activities you would expect to enjoy from a holiday in Cornwall. This absolutely gorgeous cottage offers many character features and is deceptively spacious throughout. The FOUR POSTER SOLID OAK bed is a particularly notewhorthy feature.

The garden is well maintained and has a very private barbecue area with beautiful views across the valley. Electricity, heating, bed linen and towels are all included but you will need to provide your own beach towels. One basket of logs will be provided on arrival.

Regrettably no smoking or dogs are allowed. There is plenty of space for cars to park. Cot and high chair are available but must be pre-booked.

If you fancy a night off from cooking, you can negotiate with the owner to organise some external catering; contact details available after booking. Bude (Cornish: Porthbud) is a small seaside resort town in north Cornwall, England, UK, in the civil parish of Bude-Stratton and at the mouth of the River Neet (also known locally as the River Strat). It was formerly sometimes known as Bude Haven.

It lies southwest of Stratton, south of Flexbury and Poughill, and north of Widemouth Bay and is located along the A3073 road off the A39. Bude is twinned with Ergué-Gabéric in Brittany, France. Bude's coast faces Bude Bay in the Celtic Sea, part of the Atlantic Ocean.

Its earlier importance was as a harbour, and then a source of sea sand useful for improving the moorland soil. The Victorians favoured it as a watering place, and it was a popular seaside destination in the 20th century. Many ships have been wrecked on the jagged reefs which fringe the base of the cliffs.

The figurehead of one of these, the Bencoolen, a barque whose wrecking in 1862 resulted in the drowning of most of the crew, was preserved in the churchyard but was transferred to the town museum to save it from further decay. The aftermath of the wreck of the Bencoolen was described by RS Hawker in letters which were published in Hawker's Poetical Works (1879). The perfect home for your Cornish holiday Getaway!
