The Fort is our favourite destination.. We have stayed there five times, and have two more bookings already. It always meets and even exceeds expectations. The owners always seem to be updating facilities, last year was new heating system, this year a fabulous new bathroom with walk in shower. The location could not be bettered, being a few metres from a brilliant dog friendly beach to the front, and access to clliff walks and open space to the rear.Within a few kilometres are many of the North Cornwall attractions. Bude is a lovely little town that has moved with the times,having many of the facilities of a modern town, but has not been over commercialised,so retains its character. Cant wait to return in October.

The Fort has to be the best location that I have ever stayed at - it was wonderful to look out on such an amazing view over the beach, downs, canal, Bude town and everything else.. However 'quirky' the house is (as described by many other visitors), it is better equipped than many cottages I have stayed in and the view trumps everything. And the instant access onto Efford Downs just behind the house and the beach just in front of the house is best of all.

The Fort is well equipped with everything needed for a wonderful seaside holiday.. The boot room is a genius idea and the outdoor shower a new addition. Dog friendly accommodation which is a real boon.

This was our second visit to The Fort in Bude, and we liked it so much that we’ve already booked a third visit.. It’s an exceptional property in a beautiful location.

Fabulous location, for both the beach and town.. Fantastic to have a warm outdoor shower to use when we got back from the beach. We will be coming back. Thanks

Had a wonderful holiday at The Fort, couldn’t have been closer to the beach.. Cream tea waiting, and milk in the fridge was a lovely touch. Wonderful views of the sea and the beach. I can highly recommend it

Third time we have used this property and we are returning next year.. Great location. Lovely quirky property. We just love it there! Would be great if a few items could have some attention though please - Some window catches are loose and have missing screws, would be nice if all the windows could be opened and not permanently locked especially during the hot weather. Addition of floor standing fans would be nice for the summer period? Hedges /garden at both entrances would benefit from a good pruning back to enable easier access. In the details it states there are 2 sets of door keys but we have never found another set hanging up in the hallway. This time we did not have a welcome pack of cream tea and milk, which we missed ! Addition of outside shower was really useful. We liked the newly refurbished boot room too. Shame the seagull on the front porch has broken! Lyn and Chris Rouse with Poppy

The property was very well equipped especially in the kitchen there were items that are not always available like cling film and foil.. Lots of books, games and information about the surrounding area. A great deal òf thought by the owners had gone in to what was in the house for their guests to use. A lovely family house, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We had a wonderful holiday at The Fort.. The location and views could not have been better and the cottage was well equipped. The boot / coat room was very useful ensuring that the rest of the cottage remained sand free and tidy. Even with two children. Thanks to the owners and we hope to return in the near future.

lovely cream tea on arrival after a long journey. Lots of kitchen utensils. Not very clean , it needs a proper clean everywhere. the rugs are stained and everything is sticky. The toilet seat is nearly falling off and we spent 2 days of our holiday sorting out a broken shower- very annoying when you are sudded up and it trips the electrics. Although the owner very promptly sorted it out.....twice. It sleeps 6 !! beware 1 bed is a camp bed and one bed is a mattress on the floor!!! beautiful view and lovely window seat. close to town and lovely for the beach and canal.

The fort has wonderful views of the beach. Lovely clean house with original features, you are able to use body boards from the garage, which came in handy. We were able to take our dog, who like us enjoyed the walks along the cliff tops, these walks are easily access from the back of the property, and from around the beach. The property has wifi, and a selection of games which were used in the evening by the all the family. Just a lovely ideal base, will be back

The one and only thing to stop us booking again are the steps.. The views are superb - sat for hours 'people and dog watching'. A truly memorable holiday. Thank you.

The Fort felt like a home. It is in a fantastic location with easy access to either the beach or cliff walks. It is perfect for dog owners/walkers or just families who want to enjoy a seaside holiday. Local pubs and restaurants were excellent value.
