Well, many of you will know that Andrew & I had planned to retire from holiday letting, but fate decreed otherwise. We put Honeysuckle Cottage on the market earlier in the year and found a buyer pretty quickly. The cottage was busy all summer and until the end of September which is when we had anticipated the sale going through. About a week before expected completion, our buyers pulled out as they wanted something bigger. This was a blow, I’m not going to lie, and a serious postponement of our plans. We had added Horseshoe to the market just as we were about to complete.

Though on the same courtyard, for buyers, they are very different beasts. Honeysuckle has full residential planning, while Horseshoe is a holiday let. The upshot of all that is that we continue but cannot take bookings too far ahead for fear of disappointing people if another sale arises. So, we are taking bookings for up to three months in advance via this website, phone (01237 441556) or Airbnb.  Hopefully, some of you might fancy a break. We are not running the cottages as actively as we were but we are keen to use them while we still have them. At the moment we can be fairly flexible outside high season in terms of start and end dates so do contact us if you want a break. At this time of year, a private pool is a real bonus. We still get very starry nights, and beautiful sunrises/sunsets as we have little light pollution.

Retiring

We are in the process of retiring. Honeysuckle Cottage is ‘sale agreed’ and Horseshoe Cottage is shortly going on the market. We thank all our customers/visitors past and present. Our last visitors will be staying in Honeysuckle Cottage in September and we are only taking bookings up to 3 months ahead in Horseshoe.

Stunning summer at Tosberry

To be fair it has been stunning everywhere, but we have had the most superb sunsets and glorious weather all round. Indeed, the occasional rain shower has been most welcome! These were taken on July 18th at Hartland Quay and Tosberry.

Sandymouth Beach, near Bude

Suggs loves a trip to Sandymouth

Like the rest of the country, we have enjoyed some stupendous weather lately. We’ve had busy cottages and family visitors. Bude is one of our favourite spots so here’s a few photos to give a taste of Bude and Sandymouth Beach.

Is spring here?

Is spring here?

We’ve had rain, we’ve had snow, we’ve had cold, and we’ve had wind. Unusually, the climate has thrown everything possible at the south-west this winter making outdoor tasks impossible and life generally less pleasant than it should be. However, we are now seeing some cheering blue skies, hearing the incessant birdsong and enjoying the sunshine. It’s time to visit.

We are offering short breaks in Horseshoe and Honeysuckle cottages at a discounted rate during January/February.

We have some pre-Christmas availability, and bookings are already coming in for school holidays next year. So far it’s been a mild winter, great for beach and canal walks…a vibrant blue sky makes a big difference but Sandymouth is lovely whatever the weather. If you want to see Devon/Cornwall when the beaches are empty and the coast is desolate, now is the time…
