The Retreat by name and a retreat by nature. This contemporary coastal home affords the kind of Cornish holiday you will want to repeat again and again.
Widemouth Bay’s two miles of golden sand invites wave-riders, rock-poolers, sun-worshippers and sandcastle builders alike. If you prefer your feet on terra firma, then the South West Coast Path offers adventures on foot in both directions. Step back just 400 yards from the ocean and you’ll find The Retreat. Designed for easy holiday living, this modern haven has everything you could ask for when it comes to
a coastal escape. Its proximity to the bay, with its
well-stocked local shop, means you need not venture far for essentials, allowing more time for fun, frolics
The Retreat is a homestay with integriy, whose accommodation is perfectly laid out and beautifully presented. Iroka Design, a leading Cornish interiors company, is responsible for the elegant and understated coastal theme that runs throughout the property. The refreshing combination of functionality and style makes for a holiday home that ticks all the boxes for every guest. The open-plan living and dining area is a sociable space for beginning and ending the day, while bedrooms entice sun-kissed and ocean-weary adventurers to rest their heads and regenerate for the following day’s escapade.
Throw open the patio doors and invite the sea air in before stepping out into the enclosed tiered garden for a morning coffee or a sun-downer. Catch the last rays of sun on the lawn before enjoying an al fresco dinner on the lower terrace. Widemouth’s Beach House Shop has an excellent fish counter where the day’s catch from local waters is the freshest you’ll find; perfect for popping over the coals of the BBQ. After a day on the beach sandy toes and salty wetsuits can be washed off in the outdoor shower.
The Retreat is perfectly positioned for all that this area of north Cornwall has to offer. There are both dog-friendly and life-guarded beaches nearby and this stretch of coastline is a surfer’s paradise with local schools offering lessons and hire. Nearby Bude’s streets bustle with life, while the canalside area of the town has a gentler pace for strolling. Look out for pop-up pizza perfection from The Crust in Widemouth Bay; that’s supper sorted while watching the sun dip down beneath the ocean.
