Arden House

Charming holiday home in Bude close to the beach and town

Sleep 8 across 4 bedrooms Saturday changeover Up to two well behaved dogs
The Retreat

The spacious, Edwardian Arden House is the perfect dog friendly coastal retreat overlooking the golf course, for those that want to be close to both beaches, and Bude town. The property sleeps 8 and has a ‘home away from home’ feel.

Overlooking the golf course, the view from Arden House is a sea of green to the ocean beyond. The beach at Crooklets Bay and the renowned Summerleaze Sea Pool are only a few minutes’ walk away. The bustling town of Bude, with its excellent selection of shops and restaurants, is also just along the road, meaning there is plenty for all here, whether you’re a group of friends or an extended family. A stay here promises to be one to remember.


The refurbishment of this holiday home has been sympathetic to its original charm while adding contemporary features to meet modern day family needs. There is ample space here for everyone to relax. The elegant main lounge has a feature fireplace and views over the fairways, while a separate snug makes an ideal room for childhood independence. The kitchen diner is well-equipped and organised for convivial dining.


When back from the beach, wetsuits and associated ocean toys can be stored safely in the garage. Then it’s time to sit back and relax in Arden House’s enclosed garden with its pretty lawn area and deck. Whether nursing a steaming morning coffee while making plans, enjoying an ice cold sundowner reliving the day’s highlights or enjoying a family barbecue, this is a great outdoor space.

Things to love

With much to see and do in and around Bude you really don’t need to venture far for fun. Crooklets beach is a short stroll away for fun time in the waves and if you prefer your water a little calmer, Bude’s famous sea pool will add a touch of 1930s nostalgia to your beach day, complete with brightly coloured beach huts. Coastal walks are easily accessible and stretch in both directions from the seafront.

A beautiful relaxing break
The property is extremely well appointed with everything you need for a great holiday. Easy walking to the beach and town, with plenty of eating places nearby. James, the property manager, is great, every enquiry answered promptly and we really enjoyed the meal catered for us in the house by Nicky. A beautiful relaxing break.
