Do you enjoy a New Year or Christmas family holiday?

Well, The Beach Haven may be the perfect place for you! With four bedrooms and sleeping up to 8 (plus a cot), as well as being dog-friendly, it’s ideal for a multi-generation Christmas Family Holiday and the huge oven means you’ll be able to fit even the biggest turkey inside!

Christmas Day itself is always an amazing occasion in Bude because at precisely 11am on Christmas morning, Crooklets beach throngs with thousands of people, watching hundreds of hardy and bonkers souls take a dip in the Atlantic Ocean – and no wetsuits are allowed! The event is organised by Bude Surf Lifesaving Club, the oldest such club in the country, and this annual fundraiser continues to grow in size year after year. For guests at The Beach Haven, all this is just a ten-minute walk away, which is just as well, as the car parks and streets nearby will all be full!

We stayed here at Christmas, our first time away from Essex at Christmas. We love Bude and this house was brilliant. Great rooms, comfortable beds and a lovely kitchen. Lots of lovely little touches such as Christmas tree and decorations, scones and cream on arrival… lovely location in addition a short distance from Crooklets. Not a bad word to say… totally recommend it. (Aldridge family)

We obviously can’t guarantee you a white Christmas but when there is a bit of snow, Bude looks even prettier!

We have had a short break here over New Year. It is absolutely fantastic. A brilliant holiday home, excellent location in Bude. We will definitely be back in warmer weather sometime too. (Jane Passingham)

Treat yourself to some real wild Cornwall this Festive period!

Away from the rugged north coast there is some more fabulous walking to be had on Bodmin Moor, just an easy 20-minute drive away. There are also a couple of fabulous pubs in the surrounding villages. The Old Inn at St Breward has an awesome reputation for food, and in particular, its Sunday roasts; and the Blisland Arms at, err, Blisland, has a similar reputation for real ale – just what the doctor ordered after an invigorating walk with your dog. (Yes, of course they are both dog-friendly. We wouldn’t be recommending them if they weren’t!!)

Be sure to visit the Roughtor car park at dusk to watch the incredible spectacle of the starlings coming in to roost. They arrive in aerial rivers from all directions before finally roosting in the forest to the left of the car park. Very often they will perform murmerations before they finally land too. It’s an incredible spectacle!

Bodmin Moor is a fine place for a winter walk.
