Discover the Devon countryside and coast from this property, located just 7½ miles from the golden sands of Bude and Widemouth Bay.

Nestling within glorious Devon countryside, close to the breathtaking North Cornish Coast, you will find Higher Dux, a crescent-shaped former piggery which has been lovingly converted into a pretty single-storey holiday property, an ideal retreat for couples, family and friends wanting to escape and unwind. It is peacefully located within the grounds of the owners’ smallholding, yet only 7½ miles from the golden sands of Bude and Widemouth Bay, which has excellent surfing, pretty coves and dramatic coastal walks.

The historic market town of Holsworthy is just 3½ miles away, and has a good selection of local shops, supermarket, town amenities, golf club and an indoor swimming pool and leisure centre. The village of Pyworthy with its popular village inn with restaurant is just 1¼ miles and nearby Bude with its historic castle, vibrant town centre and vast array of good restaurants and bars is perfect for a romantic evening meal watching the sun set over the ocean.

Watersports and fishing at the nearby Tamar Lakes, coastal and country walking, golf, surfing, horse riding, cycling on the National Cycle Route which passes by the cottage, or simply relaxing, there is something for everyone in this stunning location. Pretty fishing villages, spectacular beaches and coves are dotted all along this coastline from Padstow, Tintagel, Crackington Haven and Bude in Cornwall, to Westward Ho!, Clovelly and Instow in Devon, and for a great day out, the famous Eden Project is within easy reach.

    Higher Dux was clean with a nice welcome pack for us and the dog. It was warm and cosy in the evening which was welcomed given the time of the year. The location of Higher Dux is a good base for travelling along the coast and not too far from Bude where there are some great beaches and local amenities. The location of the cottage means there is a poor phone signal and the cottages Wi-Fi was not working during our weeks stay which for us was a downside as we use this to help plan trips and understand options for day trips etc.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that the Wi-Fi wasn’t working during your stay. An electrical storm beforehand tripped the electrics which affected the Wi-Fi, which is now in full working order. We hope this didn’t affect your stay too much and we hope to see you again when your travels bring you back to Devon.

    Fantastic place, lovely hosts in a beautiful setting. Our family and our dog had lovely holiday. Not to far away from Bude itself. Really enjoyed it and would recommend to anyone.

    We had a wonderful stay at Higher Dux with our amazing hosts, Harriet and Roger. Everything was just as we had hoped for and they were both so welcoming. We tried Roger's homemade sausages and newly laid hens eggs, lovely fresh produce. Harriet and Roger could not do enough for us with their hospitality and local knowledge. They really did make our stay a special one and even gave my Huband a birthday present of more homemade sausages! Would highly recommend a stay there and we would not hesitate to come back next year. Our doggie Jack enjoyed his little holiday too and made the most of his treats that had been left for him. Harriet and Roger really did think of everything!

    We had a lovely week at Higher Dux. The cottage was very clean, well equipped and in a good location for beaches and exploring. Harriet and Roger were very helpful and friendly. The cottage was great for our one year old child and Labrador. We would definitely stay here again.
