Our home

The White Cottage is our second home and is a typical English fishing cottage. It has a courtyard where one can lounge in the sun or barbecue. The house is adjoined to a neighbour's, who uses it as a holiday let . The cottage is primarily wood-fired and water is heated with solar panels (there's also an electric boiler as back-up). On the ground floor is the kitchen, dining room (w/ wood-fired Rayburn), living room (w/ wood stove), 2 bedrooms (a twin and a small double), a shower w/ toilet and hand basin, a bath/shower w/ toilet and hand basin, and a WC w/ basin. Washer and drier in the utility room, and there is an outside shower. Upstairs are 2 double bedrooms: one ensuite w/shower, basin & toilet; the other w/ basin; the 3rd bedroom is a small double w/ basin. Most of the floors and ceilings are of pine or oak. Outside, above the courtyard is the 'crow's nest', the perfect place for an evening sunset, a glass of wine or a nap. The property has a fenced garden and about an acre of meadow which is suitable for games. We recently completed a new Sun Room to the front of the house, and a new garage/games room.

Property features

Who we are

  1. My wife, Claire, daughter Lark (18) and I live on the northern edge of Dartmoor in Devon. The cottage near Bude is our 2nd home. Claire is actively involved in environmental concerns locally; I run a Yoga studio on our property.

    We also have a boathouse on the River Dart (between Totnes and
    Dartmouth in Devon) that could be available for 2/3 people. If you are interested, I could send photos of the location and property.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The cottage is located one mile north of the tourist town of Bude. When the tide is low one can walk along the beach into town, where there are fine restaurants of European, Indian, Asian cuisine; unique shops, 2 beaches, swimming pool, tennis courts, surf and kayak lessons, and horseback riding. Bude is where you'll do your main food shopping. You can also walk along the National Trust Coastal Path from the cottage into Bude in 30 minutes or, if you're more ambitious, walk all 650 miles around Cornwall, Devon and Dorset in about 6 weeks!
