We had a 4 night stay at end of Aug beginning of Sept. Sally and Bill were great hosts, and we were shown round by Sally on arrival, and also given a welcome drink and shortbread in their lovely guest lounge. Sally made a point of saying that guests can come and go as they please at any time, which is also nice to know. Everywhere is spotlessly clean, our room was lovely bright, fresh and well decorated. With good quality bed & bedding. The whole house has a nice friendly relaxed atmosphere, it really did feel enjoyable stopping there. At breakfast although you are seated at the same table as other guests - the table is very spacious so you don't feel like you are encroaching on someone else's space. The crockery etc is spotless and the breakfast is excellent quality, and a pleasure to eat. There is also use of the hot tub which is an added bonus. Bude itself is a 20 min walk (downhill mostly) which of course does mean its a 20 min uphill (mostly) on the way back. The cottage itself is a few yards from the main coast road, a small torch is handy if walking and returning after dark as the Cottage is on an unlit road off the main coastal road. By car its only a few mins down to Bude, and there is a large carpark as you come into Bude which is free from 6pm. The coastal path is also only a few mins walk from the Cottage, and it is really worth walking part of it, there are some terrific views. We would certainly recommend Harefield Cottage without hesitation!
