Rosehip Cottage, a luxury holiday cottage, sleeps 6 – 8 and offers a supremely comfortable base for your holiday adventures in and around North Cornwall and Devon.

One of the original mariner’s cottages on Breakwater Road, Rosehip Cottage sits on the famous Bude canal and offers spectacular views over Summerleaze Beach and Bude Castle Mount.  Our picturesque Cottage is a few yards from the lock gates which give direct access to the ever-popular Summerleaze Beach and Bude Sea Pool.

We Are Now Open for Bookings

We are open for bookings now all the way through to Xmas and New Year 2021/2. We are already taking bookings as far ahead as August 2021 – it seems that holidays in Cornwall and Devon are more popular than ever!

We re-opened on 4 July alongside many other hospitality businesses and other businesses locally

You can find a list of open businesses below:


Where bookings have been affected by Government restrictions on hospitality businesses we have been able to honour current bookings or else offer deferral to a later date or a refund according to guests’ preference.

During the first lockdown we have taken the opportunity to engage local Bude firms to improve some of the facilities at Rosehip Cottage, and to support the Bude economy from afar as best we can during this difficult period.

There are many Bude business that offer their goods and services online: clothing and surfwear; furniture and fittings; web design; art and artists’ materials to name a few. It would be pernicious of us to recommend one provider over any other, but we do like the coffee from Sabins! and we are grateful to Dean Wronowski for the web design and support.

When you visit we would encourage you to spend locally at the many smaller businesses that have suffered particularly badly during lockdown

November Lockdown

At the moment we are closed due to Government restrictions but hope to reopen from 2 December.

COVID Guarantee

If you make a booking and we cannot honour it because of Government restrictions on our ability to offer accommodation then we will return your fees or, if you prefer, put them towards a reservation at a later date (subject to availability).

This guarantee does not apply if we are able to honour the booking but you wish to cancel because one of your party falls ill (or is suspected of falling ill) with COVID or any other disease or is required to self-isolate. Your travel insurance should cover this instead. If we can re-let (at the full rate or at a discount) then at our discretion we will return some or all of the fees you have paid.
