An ideal location

I must go down to the seas again…

That longing is what brought us to Bude, and 10 years later looking out on the Atlantic everyday is still a joy.

Atlantic House was built by a Captain Cook in the 1880’s and has been looking out on Efford Downs, the River Neet and the Atlantic Ocean ever since.

Times have changed but the view has not. A stroll to Summerleaze Beach takes minutes and the town centre is equally close by. Even the first hole of Bude’s golf course is within 200 metres.

At Atlantic House the challenge is choosing what to do next, not getting to the perfect spot.

Unspoiled town

And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover…

Bude is a friendly town, not stuck in the past but holding on to traditional values; it is constantly developing but without selling its soul.

Guests that have been staying at Atlantic House for decades tell us that the view has not changed. The same cottages decorate the canal side. New buildings go up and old ones are face lifted but there are no vulgar developments, no chain hotels, no anonymous bars or brash clubs.

Bude is for those that love the great out doors and appreciate what makes Cornwall the favourite holiday destination that it is.
