Down House is an elegant holiday home in which you can relax with ease. Family gatherings or groups of friends can enjoy spending time together here, all within just a gentle stroll from the beautiful Crooklets Bay.
Down House couldn’t be better positioned for those that love to holiday by the ocean. Stroll for just a few minutes from this elegant holiday home and the delights of Crooklets Bay reveal themselves. Rocky outcrops on either end provide endless rock pooling opportunities while an expanse of golden sand at low tide allows for beach strolls, bathing or simply setting down a rug and relaxing. Away from the water, Bude offers fine dining and boutique shopping while the surrounding area has much to explore.
The facade is dignified and elegant, echoed by its interior décor and furnishings. A feeling of understated calm is created by the use of earth tones, natural stone and wood. An open-plan orangery invites hours of endless chatting or dining in style, all warmed by a rotating wood burner. The kitchen is vast and replete with modern equipment. Bedrooms are tranquil havens of comfy beds and crisp linen and a ground floor double bedroom is ideal for anyone with walking or mobility problems.
Perfectly positioned to catch the evening sun, the level front and rear gardens invite you to pause awhile with a glass of something chilled at the end of a summer’s day. Pretty planting and mature borders surround luscious lawns, ideal for a good-old fashioned game of bat and ball.
Cornwall’s north coast offers the ultimate in holiday adventure. From Bude’s beaches and its iconic sea pool to the miles of South West Coast Path just waiting to be explored, you can spend endless days outdoors, every day different. Further afield, there’s Padstow for foodies or Tintagel for lovers of legend.

We have just come back from a wonderful relaxing holiday at Down House in Bude. The house was fantastic, a great location, and big enough for our group of ten, easily. Plenty of space and a lovely orangery that runs the length of the house. Thank you, Elite West Holidays, for a fantastic stay. We would definitely book again.
