This delightful, quirky semi-detached cottage is situated close to the beach in the popular coastal town of Bude and can sleep six people in three bedrooms.

The Fort is a delightful, quirky semi-detached cottage situated close to the beach in the popular coastal town of Bude and can sleep six people in one double bedroom, one twin room and a single with pull-out bed as well as a family bathroom. The rest of the property contains a kitchen with dining area, a utility and a sitting room with gas coal-effect fire, plus a ground floor cloakroom. There is also a small sun room and a garage.

To the outside of the property there are terraced gardens with outdoor furniture, plus off road parking for two cars. The Fort is ideal for a family or couples looking for a seaside break in this wonderful part of Cornwall.


Second time visiting the Fort and have booked again for 2019. Lovely property, very home from home feel. The property is well equipped and carefully thought through. The boot room is a great advantage especially as we stayed with two dogs and 6 people! Plenty of storage. The views are stunning, you can easily sit in the window in the lounge for hours admiring the sea view. The steps are not great for people unsteady on their feet, but most places with great views are elevated so it is to be expected. Having one bathroom can be a little awkward if 6 people are planning to get out early but being on holiday that didn?t worry us. We weren?t really needing to rush out. The cooker isn?t great (functionality not cleanliness) and could do with replacing but more excuses to eat out or try a take away! One thing I think the property would benefit from is stair gates. This would stop dogs and young children trying to go up and down stairs. All in all we loved both our stays here and the recent redecoration of the boot room and the addition of the outside shower was great. We've booked a 3rd visit here.

view to remember
lovely cream tea on arrival after a long journey. Lots of kitchen utensils. Not very clean , it needs a proper clean everywhere. the rugs are stained and everything is sticky. The toilet seat is nearly falling off and we spent 2 days of our holiday sorting out a broken shower- very annoying when you are sudded up and it trips the electrics. Although the owner very promptly sorted it out.....twice. It sleeps 6 !! beware 1 bed is a camp bed and one bed is a mattress on the floor!!! beautiful view and lovely window seat. close to town and lovely for the beach and canal.

perfect location for a beach holiday
The fort has wonderful views of the beach. Lovely clean house with original features, you are able to use body boards from the garage, which came in handy. We were able to take our dog, who like us enjoyed the walks along the cliff tops, these walks are easily access from the back of the property, and from around the beach. The property has wifi, and a selection of games which were used in the evening by the all the family. Just a lovely ideal base, will be back

The Fort felt like a home. It is in a fantastic location with easy access to either the beach or cliff walks. It is perfect for dog owners/walkers or just families who want to enjoy a seaside holiday. Local pubs and restaurants were excellent value.
