Little Rowans is an excellent apartment, which is furnished to an incredibly high standard. Upon our arrival, we were welcomed by Helen who was able to show us around our apartment. The little basket of scones, elderflower and cider was a lovely little touch for us to have during our stay. Helen provided us with some great recommendations from coastal walks, bike hire and restaurants, which was very helpful. Little Rowans is only a short walk from Bude town centre, which is packed with eateries and independent shops. Crooklets and Summerleaze Beach are two beaches that are very closeby, which we were able to enjoy during the hot weather. We thoroughly enjoyed our week and we hope to stay another time in the future.
Little Rowans is in an idyllic location overlooking fields, close to the well known Preston Gate Inn, and moments away from Northcott beach - the perfect place to recharge after our weekend at a festival.
Everything was finished to the highest standard, immaculate is the only word to describe it - Helen & Andy are really friendly hosts, offering recommendations on the best places to eat/visit, allowing use of their body boards, fresh scones & cider on arrival, what more can you ask for!
We will most definitely be returning - thanks again for a great stay.
Little Rowans is the ideal spot for some peace and quiet. Only 20 minutes walk to the beach and town but you can still hear sheep bleating outside the window.
The apartment is beautiful and has everything you could possibly need and more. Helen was the perfect host, providing us with a cream tea upon arrival and lots of recommendations for places to visit.
We couldn't recommend Little Rowans highly enough. Thanks so much for a lovely break Helen!
Well what can i say just perfect. Me and my wife went there for a long weekend and to say we where pleasantly surprised is an under statement.The views from the bedroom where just amazing the welcome we had from the owners ( helen & andy ) was lovely , if you need to know anything you only had to ask. The cottage was so clean and very tastefully furnished it was basically home from home just with better views. I would recommend the local pub both for food and drink but just book before as it does get really busy and only small but great food. Thanks again helen and andy for a great weekend and we both wish you all the best.
This is a very special holiday let. Quiet and peaceful rural location yet only 15-20 minutes walk from Crooklets Beach, golf course, cricket pitch and Bude outdoor pool. Bude is renowned for providing the perfect setting for outdoor activities to suit all ages. Cliff-top walks, surfing, sea-kayaking or just an outdoor table at one of the local pubs or cafes. Bude has it all and Little Rowans is the perfect way to enjoy all that the area has to offer.
Accommodation itself is very 'high spec' and modern with all the creature comforts. Ideal for couples with lots of space to move around. There is a fully equipped modern kitchen, downstairs shower room and very very comfortable queen size bed in the upstairs bedroom. Perfect place to relax with it's own patio area complete with outdoor furniture and sun-lounger. Folding patio doors open onto the decking and there are wonderful countryside views from the bedroom which can be enjoyed from the carefully positioned seating.
Lots of thought has gone into every little detail, from the home made Cornish cream tea and elderflower cordial which had been left for us to enjoy, to the little finishing touches like fresh roses in a vase and a full sewing kit on the dressing table.
Helen and Andy live next door and were always on hand to answer any questions or give suggestions for places to visit. They were perfect hosts, even down to giving us some fresh vegetables from their vegetable plot for our evening meal.
Thank you Helen and Andy for a wonderful holiday and hope to return for a longer spell next time.
