Spacious coastal holiday home in Widemouth Bay

The Retreat

2 The Mallows is a unique property, nestled in the peaceful beachside village of Widemouth Bay on the North Cornish coast. This coastal home sleeps up to 8 across four bedrooms, offers ample private parking and is just a short stroll from the beach.


Tucked away in a quiet cul-de-sac overlooking the Atlantic Ocean sits 2 The Mallows. This Widemouth Bay coastal home has gorgeous airy interiors, a secluded garden perfect for dining alfresco and the sandy expanse of Widemouth Bay beach being just a simple stroll away — it’s the idyllic base for a relaxing stay.


A neat red-brick lane winds its way through the well-kept front lawn and welcomes you to enter the home; upon stepping through the front door you are greeted with the entrance hallway. To the right, you will find an airy open-plan living space, beginning with the dining area; large double doors lead straight out onto the back garden from here, inviting in plenty of light and allowing for easy indoor-outdoor living. From here, you’ll find the wonderfully well-equipped kitchen, which elegantly flows past the kitchen island and into a generously sized lounge, making it the perfect social space for family and friend gatherings. A separate utility room can also be found just off the kitchen.

The best feature of the lounge is the large west-facing window — with views over the front garden and out towards the sea, it’s a tranquil place to settle into after a long day spent enjoying the adventures of surfing, exploring rock pools or hiking along the coast path. Relax and enjoy the warmth of the wood burner for those cooler months, whilst nestling into the spacious sofas to watch a film on the smart TV.

To the left of the front entrance, along the hallway, you’ll find three of the four bedrooms. The principle bedroom is located at the end — a large airy super king with ensuite which enjoys pretty views across the front garden and out towards the sea. A cosy twin room can be found halfway along the hall, followed by a king ensuite which has peaceful views overlooking the back garden. A large family bathroom completes this hallway; all bathrooms at this Widemouth Bay coastal home are sleek and modern, with each ensuite containing a walk in shower. The last bedroom can be found just off the dining area and up the stairs — a dormer style twin room with sloping ceilings and cosy ensuite. This is the perfect place to relax with a morning coffee, soaking in the panoramic view towards the sea, and is equally an ideal spot to watch the sunset.


This Widemouth Bay coastal home offers plenty of outside space to soak up the sun and invigorating sea air. Take advantage of the barbecue and cook up a feast, using fresh fish from the local shop, and dine alfresco in the secluded back garden where you’ll find an extending dining table and easy access through the double patio doors. The west-facing front lawn offers a wonderful view to watch the sunset and enjoy a sundowner amidst the plants, which are reminiscent of warm climates.

Things we love

You get a true sense of peace when staying at 2 The Mallows — from the airy bright interiors to the quiet suburban setting – you’re guaranteed to have a tranquil, relaxing stay. Life-guarded beaches are nearby and this stretch of coastline is a surfer’s paradise with local schools offering lessons and hire, such as the fabulous Freewave Surf Academy. After a day of beach adventures, rinse off under the outdoor shower and make use of the secure garage — complete with handy wetsuit rail — to store bikes and surfboards. Widemouth Bay is a delightful little community, with all the essentials so you need not travel far, whilst the bustling town of Bude with its famous Sea Pool, is just a short distance away too. Further afield, the north coast offers endless opportunities for adventure, such as the picturesque villages of Boscastle and Tintagel, which are steeped in Cornish history and folklore. When it’s time to retreat back home for the day, kick back and relax in the homely comforts of 2 The Mallows.
