This is a lovely holiday home. It is off the beaten track so there are lots of narrow roads to navigate. There is a shop 1/2 a mile away which is fully stocked and about 15-20 minutes from Bude town centre. The house is spacious and comfortable. We had a lovely relaxing time.

Very spacious and well equipped home. Having two lounges was great as we could split up if one group wanted to watch TV but the others didn't. Kitchen was lovely and it was great to have a big table that we could get around easily. Bedrooms were all spacious and the en suites were great.

A good place for making memories for all ages. If you love walking and being away from the crowds this is the place to stay. Roomy but cosy with all the facilities needed to cater for families or friends. Thank you to Helen and team for being on the end of the phone when we had any queries and the high standard of cleanliness at St David's.

A fabulous place to stay. Ideal for large groups as there is plenty of space. Exceptionally well equipped kitchen. The games room is a real bonus. It is a bit off the beaten track so ensure you take some food with you. Having said that we all had a wonderful week there and on the plus side it is a down hill walk back from the local pub!
