Bude Sea Pool (5.5 miles) is a great spot for a swim. Located in the rocks at Summerleaze Beach, this partially manmade tidal swimming pool was created in the 1930s to provide a haven for safe swimming. Upper Tamar Lake (3 miles) is heaven for coarse fishing, as it’s well-stocked with carp up to the mid-30lb range, while Lower Tamar Lake (also 3 miles) is a great place for bird-spotters, as there is a bird hide. Further afield, immerse yourself in ancient myths and stunning scenery at Tintagel Castle (23.5 miles), which is linked inextricably with the legend of King Arthur. While you’re in Tintagel, check out King Arthur's Great Halls (23.5 miles), which were built in the 1930s. And if you’re looking for the perfect place for a great family day out, check out Trethorne Leisure Park (26 miles). The animal farm, dodgem cars, bowling alley, crazy golf course and huge indoor play area are all sure to keep the kids happy.

The Old Rectory enables a relaxing, luxurious and very comfortable holiday; the grounds are extensive and the countryside views from the house fabulous. We loved every minute of our week's stay and didn't want to leave. The village shops and pubs are within walking distance, the beach at Sandymouth 15 minutes by car and there is the nearby SW coastRead more path for wonderful, energetic, walking. Hide

The Old Rectory is a wonderful property in which to spend ones precious holiday time. It is spacious and very comfortable with the most tremendous gardens and views. We were one family group of parents with adult children and partners. We could spend time together in a space that allowed us to be together and separate as we chose.
