Little Sanctuary Cottage

A beautiful, single storey and dog friendly barn which has been carefully converted into a character cottage which is ideal for three people. You’ll love the beamed ceilings and cobbled entrance. There’s a small garden area with BBQ. It’s a very short and easy walk to two village pubs and just 1 ½ miles from Bude town centre and the beach. A basket of logs and coal is provided.

Little Sanctuary Cottage is ideal for a peaceful, relaxing holiday (for 1-3 people and a dog) in a quiet location, without isolation, in the ancient village of Stratton, near Bude, on the North Cornish coast.

The beautiful, single storey cottage was once a stable block and tack room. The conversion retains all its charm and character with beamed ceilings and cobbled entrance. In addition to full gas central heating, Little Sanctuary has a log fire, making it not only a special place to take a holiday through the summer months, but also a cosy retreat during winter.

Stratton was once a thriving and important market town with shops, inns, Magistrate’s Court etc., for centuries serving the needs of the local farming community.

At the beginning of the nineteenth century a canal was built and the port of Bude grew by the sea, in what had been a rather remote part of Stratton parish.

A hundred years ago the railway by-passed Stratton, and Bude developed as a seaside resort. Today the canal is used only for recreational purposes, and the railway is gone, and Stratton is a charming village with narrow streets having names such as Cot Hill, Spicers Lane, Gibralter Square and Sanctuary Lane.

Little Sanctuary is within a short walk of the beautiful church of St Andrews, Post Office and village shop . For a quiet drink, or meal, there is a choice of two fascinating historic inns, both of which are dog friendly.

Within easy reach (2 miles) are sandy beaches where you can swim, or surf in the Atlantic Ocean. Bude has a seawater pool, and an indoor leisure pool. There are magnificent cliff walks with superb views! The wild flowers, and bird life are delightful! Locally you can fish, ride, or play golf, tennis or squash. There is much to explore by car, Clovelly, Boscastle, Tintagel and Port Isaac are all within easy reach.

Included in the price are gas, electricity, bed linen (duvets) and tea towels, first basket of logs and bucket of coal.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Little Sanctuary, it was so comfortable, quite a home from home. We especially loved how secluded and peaceful it was, and how lovely and cool it was in the hot weather. Our stay was made even more special by such generous hospitality, I’m sure we’ll be back!

Very comfortable holiday home, beautifully clean. Well equipped. Generous “welcome “ pack, plenty of hot water when required, and efficient heating if needed. Friendly hosts, and outside area perfect for breakfast. A most enjoyable stay, and we hope to return, very soon.


Superb accommodation, spotlessly clean, very well equipped and comfortable. The hosts were very welcoming and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again and recommend it to friends. We had a lovely week’s holiday.


Comfortable and attractive accommodation in a quiet village location. Spotlessly clean and very thoughtfully equipped. Everything we needed for our break and would highly recommend.


Beautiful and cosy. Very welcoming owners who couldn’t do enough for us. Didn’t want to leave.
