The Retreat

Westerly House is a dog friendly abode of dreams and where large families and friends can come together to experience a traditional seaside holiday in the picture-postcard Cornish town of Bude.

Days at Westerly start when everyone gets together for a hearty breakfast around the table. Adventures are best planned on a full tummy, so now is the time to plan the day’s exploration. Surfers, sea and sand lovers are just a short walk from the beach while shoppers can browse independent boutiques and explore eclectic eateries. Walkers can don their boots and be on the South West Coastal Path in minutes with golfers getting the VIP treatment with a fairway on the doorstep. Or just sit, rest, read a book if the desire so takes you, and appreciate Westerly’s own haven of peace and tranquillity.


The door to this Victorian mansion is a portal to a sublime holiday home. Its façade gives way to expansive interiors with vaulted ceilings and exposed beams. Colours nod to the nautical with modern accents to inspire. From young to old there is a place and space for all – budding chefs in the kitchen cooking up a feast; gamers in the snug with its plethora of connectivity; bookworms in the lounge warming toes in front of the wood-burning stove. Soak away the day in a choice of four bathrooms before one of the seven bedrooms hosts your head for the night while you dream of your day.


You can let the fresh air flood in at Westerly – giant patio doors open out to a private outdoor garden. Here children can play in safety as you sip a steaming morning coffee. Or enjoy a sundowner as you stoke up the built-in barbecue in preparation for an outdoor feast, with fish sustainably caught in Cornish waters or meat from the local butcher.

Things we love

With its north coast splendour and Victorian architecture, Bude is reminiscent of those bygone holidays where the simple pleasures in life were at the fore. Long days spent on endless golden sand beaches, rock pooling for hours, the sugar rush from Cornish ice-creams and chippy teas on the harbour wall, legs and crab lines dangling with abandon.

An absolute gem of a place
The only 100% dog proof property we've ever holidayed in, but more than that it's beagle proof – a rare find! A truly wonderful house, with comfort and style. An absolute gem of a place to visit. 5* on each level. Conveniently located minutes from Bude’s beaches, the house is ideally situated for a complete winter getaway with long walks along the rugged coastline. Our family had all ages staying for the week and found the house well equipped with everything we might need. Separate areas also enabled family members to have their own space when needed. Thanks for the wonderful stay!
