Dovedale cottage is set in the heart of the Cornish Countryside, just 5 miles from the coast and boasts a stunning 1/2 acre garden for children and pets to explore.  A large traditional country kitchen is the perfect setting for cosy family meals and is ideal for families that like to cook together.  The lounge offers a contemporary yet warm space to relax and enjoy the large wood burner as well as the smart TV which has a Netflix account for guests to use at their leisure. The owner has created a fantastic home from home, with high ceilings and luxury mattresses which you will struggle to live without when you leave and cute hand basins in some of the rooms to still keep the country cottage feel.  This rural retreat set in the small hamlet of Broad Langdon is an absolute gem.  It's still only 5 miles from the lovely Crackington Haven’s sandy beach and it's close enough for you to explore the great sights and coastline that Cornwall has to offer.  For anyone who thinks it looks familiar, Dovedale Cottage was featured in Escape To The Country in series 15 episode 71.

Local Area

Bude has been a popular holiday destination since the 19th century, when train travel began to allow people much more freedom to explore the country.  It is still well-loved by its many visitors, whether you prefer to relax and hire a beach hut for the day, or participate in something more active, such as surfing and other water sports, horse-riding, cycling or maybe a round of golf or two. You can get the ferry out to Lundy Island, a good place to see local sea and bird life including puffins, or perhaps hire a rowing boat or pedalo to take out on the canal.  While down by the canal, pop into the Bude Heritage Centre to learn about the history of the area, and look round the art gallery. Visitors can also bag a bargain at Atlantic Village, and if you're here out of season, this popular shopping centre has an ice rink, and is open seven days a week.  During the season, there is also a farmer's and craft market on the wharf, where you can pick up souvenirs of your trip. For something a little different, a local geology expert offers guided tours of the area.  Or you might like to take the scenic circular walk along the Planekeeper's Path, along the canal and back to the town via winding footpaths.


Dovedale Cottage exceeded our expectations. It's a haven of peacefulness and comfort. There is easy access to local attractions, beauty spots and beaches. Liz, the owner, is a perfect hostess. In summary, we would highly recommend Dovedale Cottage.Mr Christopher Beever - 12th July 2018
