Your parking is off road on a shared private drive. A traditional Cornish clotted cream tea awaits you on arrival. The property is conveniently situated in a private lane just 4 mins walk from Widemouth's two fabulous Blue Flag beaches, this being the Gold Standard for beaches internationally, popular with families, surfers, walkers and sunbathers.

      Lovely place and thoughtful hosts

      Really comfortable and thoughtfully put together holiday apartment. Amazing location for the most beautiful beach - on foot or a short drive to others to pick up the coastal path from Crackington Haven. Fish and scallops off the boat fresh or a cinema treat when the rain rained. Is there more to say?

      5/5 Excellent

        Happy stay at The Summerhouse

        This is a lovely, bright, welcoming and absolutely spotless property. Very well equipped and a very short walk from the fantastic beach. The owners were brilliant in communicating and left a great, welcoming cream tea on arrival, all in all highly recommended

        5/5 Excellent

          Lovely Summerhouse

          The Summerhouse is a great place with everything you need. We enjoyed our stay and the surrounding area is beautiful, bars and restaurants within walking distance with plenty of places to see a short drive away. Thank you Lisa and Ben

            Perfect surfing break

            Had a great few days in this lovely little place. Great facilities including stuff for kids. Communication from the owners was great, and they were really helpful and friendly. Lovely that supplies (milk, cream tea, tea coffee, sugar, orange juice) were there when we arrived. Kitchen brilliantly equipped. Will definitely be returning.

            4/5 Good


              We had a lovely week in the summerhouse with our nearly 2 yr old daughter. The house is well equipped and has some cool things included. The scones on arrival were amazing and the automatic nightlights when walking down the stairs was brilliant. Location is excellent with a several hundred yard walk to the beach. The only thing is you have to walk along the road which in the summer could be a bit busy so you have to be careful. There was some machines working on knocking down a house across the road from the property so the reversing beepers got a bit annoying from 8 am til about 5. We were out most days anyway so it wasn’t too bad. Lots of things to see and do in the area and in bude. I recommend the sausage and egg bap from black rock cafe which was prob the best one I’ve ever had. Def worth staying in the lovely house. Thank you again to Nic & Bob for introducing your selves and the prompt refund. D, T & L :)
