Area On the North coast of Cornwall, close to the border with Devon, Bude is a popular resort, with famous beaches attracting surfers throughout the year.

Within easy reach of Bude are the Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, Tintagel and Crackington Haven.

Groom Cottage is very well equipped , comfortable and homely.. We had a fantastic week and would love to stay there again.
Mrs Jeyes, September 2020
A lovely cozy cottage with great facilities on site like the pool and games room.. 10 minute walk to a great pub and only 5 minutes drive to the beautiful beach which is sog friendly!

On the website photos do not really show clearly the layout of the cottage and garden, a floor plan would help.. The website description led us to believe that the garden was one complete entity when in fact it was split into three seperate entities. In itself this was not a problem for guests, nor would it have been for a small dog. Unfortunately this was not suitable for a large dog like our german short haired pointer and to be fair and in retrospect I should have clarified this with the owner at time of booking. Other than that, the cottage itself and its facilities were good.

Simply stunning! This quirky cottage is beautiful and everything you could wish for. The site itself has some fantastic facilities including a swimming pool, pool table and table tennis table. Close by and within walking distance is a gorgeous pub in Poughill called the Preston Gate Inn which serves good food and entertainment of an evening. I just want to personally thank the owners who were absolutely amazing, supportive and very accommodating to us when I received some sad news prior to our holiday. Thank you so much and we will definitely be back. This place is lovely xx

Small and compact cottage with a over whelming smell of dampness
Mrs Butler, September 2019
We had an amazing week in Groom cottage.. The cottage facilities were great it’s a well equipped kitchen, cosy sitting area. The bedrooms were tastefully decorated and beds were comfortable. We made use of the lovely indoor pool every morning. The location was ideally placed to explore Bude, its’ lovely beaches and other coastal locations. We also loved having our Schnauzer with us and the site had ample space to allow him to have a roam around and a sniff! We look forward to a return trip to Groom cottage!
Mrs Shimmin, September 2019
Quiet base with easy access to Bude and surronding atractions.. Teenager, Cavapoo and parents all enjoyed holiday experience.

A nice relaxed place, calm and nicely situated
Miss Morris, July 2019
We had a lovely stay at Groom Cottage.. Knowing our dog was joining us Susan was kind enough to suggest some good dog walks that were an alternative to the obvious beach walks. We tried them all out and Bodie seemed to enjoy himself. The facilities at the site are great, we swam most mornings to work off the holiday excesses. We would definitely stay there again.
Miss Welburn, June 2019
A beautiful quirky and characterful cottage! We really enjoyed our relaxing break here, we visited outside of the school holidays so it was especially peaceful although it would be great for families at any time. Usually we could only hear birdsong & distant sheep in the mornings and had the lovely swimming pool all to ourselves every day. We would really recommend staying here; the owner left fresh milk, tea and kitchen and bathroom essentials which was really helpful. Stratton & Bude are also nearby and the Preston Gate Inn is particularly worth a visit!
Dr Ackner, May 2019
Had a really nice few nights at Groom Cottage.. Lovely old cottage in a nice place.
Only thing that I think could be improved is the up keep of the garden area.
Mr Leeks, May 2019
Amazing indoor swimming pool.. Lots of holiday brochures in pool entrance.
Enjoyed history of cottage.
Welcomed with milk, tea and Cornish biscuits.
3 safe enclosed garden/patio areas for dog to go in.
Close to hustle and bustle of Bude and peaceful to return to.
Mrs Thatcher, April 2019
Good location and easily accessible local amenities.. Good meals at the Preston Gate Pub nearby. A lovely family holiday in a very charming and dog friendly cottage. Recommended.
Mr Owens, April 2019
We had a great holiday and the cottage was quaint and clean and exactly what we needed.. We appreciate the organisation of a last minute booking- the host contacted us about the keys and left a warm welcome in terms of a lovely welcome card, milk and biscuits to get us started with a cuppa! Wish we could have stayed longer! The pool and games room was a massive hit with the kids!
This was our third year staying at Groom cottage and had another great stay.. Would highly recommend to all.
Looking forward to next year
Holiday cottage was lovely!
We had a lovely time at the cottage.. It was very welcoming and Susan had a left a note with some lovely biscuits and some fresh milk in the fridge.My children especially liked the swimming pool.we would love to stay again please.thank you.
We booked Friday to Friday and left on Monday ! The cottage was very small and the stairs was very difficult to negotiate. Also the Television was frankly rubbish ...
Finally the yard for our two dogs was very small and we had to travel 15 miles to find a decent wooded area to walk our two Cocker Spaniels.
Once again we have had a marvellous time , already looking forward to next years vacation.. Thanks to this cosy cottage in this beautiful setting of Bude.
Friendly people and great service from Sykes cottages , will recommend Sykes cottages to all my family and friends
We had a very enjoyable 13 night stay
Accommodation was comfortable & the
pool was amazing will definitely consider staying again
Very accurate description.. Lovely cottage with lots to do. Owners were on hand if needed for any problems. This is the second time of staying at this cottage .
I stayed at another cottage last year.. This was bigger and better.the swimming pool on this site is super lovely and warm.also the changing rooms have been upgraded which is a huge improvement.
Groom cottage was a gorgeous quirky property and we had a fab time staying there.. Swimming pool was amazing and we went for a dip most days.
The location was an easy 5min drive into Bude for the shops or Crooklet beach which was lovely and perfect for our kids rocks to climb rock pooling and waves to jump in along with sand for digging. Rosie's cafe much better inside and food than the outside would suggest..
only thing missing was a hairdryer in the property so remember to take your own.
We had a fabulous week away in groom cottage, perfect location to go off on day trips exploring Cornwall.. The cottage is very cosy and has everything there you would need to make your stay comfortable. Would definitely return if visiting this area again!
Absolutely perfect, lovely spacious cottage with everything you need. The pool was also fab, beautifully quiet and lovely grounds.
