No 5 the two bedroom apartment:

A fabulous place to stay with many thoughtful touches, the kids especially liked the garden. We liked the well equipped kitchen and excellant shower etc.
We all liked the range of gadgets including several cd players, TVs etc though the weather was so good we didn't need them as much as we thought.
Thank you to the person(s) who made the flat so clean before we arrived.

Had a wonderful stay at your Brightlands apartment it was the perfect location for our holiday, we enjoyed being able to walk to the beach and Bude town centre, as well as the lovely coastal works to neighbouring beaches.
The apartment provided us with everything we needed for the perfect holiday and we hope to return in the next years as there are many more places we wish to visit. A+T, S. We will be recommending you to our family and friends.

Great Apartment with absolutely everything a family could want (and more!) Superb location. Had a throughly good time despite the weather. Definitely recommend to friends and family and hope to stay in the not to distant future. D, J + A

Brilliantly located – it has been wonderful to have a place to sleep within walking distance of the beach.  We have had a lovely time with great weather and are leaving with some tears. We wish that we could have stayed longer. Top marks for the apartment which was brilliantly equipped with everything we needed, will recommend.

The family has had a lovely time, even though the weather has not been good.

Thank you.


Family have enjoyed their stay, the weather was not very good though. The apartment was well equipped.

Thank you.


We had a great week – mixed weather but good enough for a couple of days at the beach – Northcott Mouth (left up the lane then left again) is beautiful with sand and rock pools. Clovelly made a good day out (free for under 7s! + An activity trail) Good food at the Crooklets Inn.

We have had a very enjoyable time at Brightlands.  The weather has been cloudy but dry and we have made the most of it. We would recommend Crackington Haven beach for surfing and streams running though the beach. Quite small but beautiful, great café and toilets.

For a good evening meal in Bude go to the Atlantic Diner at bottom of high street on the left

Great choice and super value, went there 3 times!!! (Menu in folder in dresser).

Found apartment compact but well organized and lots of thoughtful extras.

Thank you.

We all loved our time in this well equipped flat, not that we spent much time in it as there is so much to do. Big Sheep and the Otter Reserve were great with young children.

Thank you to Lynn and Andrew for being so helpful.

We have all really enjoyed our stay here; the flat has been cosy with great facilities. The lawn was extremely convenient with lots of room to play in. There are many great tourist shop in Bude, with a Sainsburys for shopping!.

There are so many close by attractions, some within walking distance. We recommend Sandymouth Bay for some crazy moves for surfing. A great place to eat in Bude is the Coachmans Bar where we all had a great meal. The weather has been good with a few showers and cloudy days, but we braved it and had fun. Tintagel is also a good place to visit. The remains of a King Arthur castle are scattered over cliff tops. A lovely long scenic walk across the cliffs! Amazing!!!!

Our stay at Brightlands has been extremely good.


Brightlands 11 Studio:

Brilliant flat was all we needed and more. We have fallen in love with the area, and will be coming back. We have the ‘surfing bug’. We recommend going to Scrummies restaurant for a fantastic meal.

Half term holiday

A very pleasant, comfortable, and compact holiday space with all the comforts and facilities that you need for a week away. For a quiet secluded beach head left out of the car park and left at the junction down to the beach. The camp site shop next door is handy for any ‘bits’ you may need. For a nice couple of hours head to the Otter sanctuary on the way to Launceston and have lunch at the Journeyman pub opposite the junction to Otter farm. Padstow & Fowey also worth a trip as Plymouth for shopping.

A nice break – Thank you.

A  & S and F

Very well equipped flat, clean and well furnished. Liked exploring the area and walks on the coastal paths.



Had a great Christmas break , well equipped and cosy flat – great location for exploring by car or on foot. Good local supermarkets and places to eat/for coffee. We were really lucky with the sunny weather for walking on the beach and for visiting the Eden Project.

Thank you. J & N

Thank you J & E


Farm House Rectory teashop at Morwenstow brilliant. Plymouth great. Appreciated all the things left here for us. Pub called ‘who’d have thought it’ in St Dominic’s near Launceston expensive but lovely atmosphere and great food.


A lovely clean and well equipped base from which to explore. The walk into Bude very pleasant. Weather has been mixed but we have had a fabulous time. Would recommend to everyone.
