4, Bideford Mews is a two bedroom cottage which can accommodate 4 - 6 with a sofa-bed in the sitting room, though it's also a great bolt-hole for couples or anyone wanting to get away on their own.
The cottage is ideally located for those who want to be near the facilities of Bude, with its beautiful beaches, canal, leisure activities, great variety of cafes, restaurants and various shops, but who prefer a place to stay a step away from the bustle of the small but popular seaside town.
Stratton, by the River Neet or Strat, is a peaceful village (once an important town) of great historic interest, on the outskirts of Bude.
Stratton, Bude and the villages around are set in beautiful countryside, and the cliff-top walks of the South West Coast Path take in some spectacular scenery.

There is a copy of the Stratton Town Trail in the cottage - SEE: https://www.visitbude.info/for-culture-history-buffs/stratton-town-trail/ - for your use. The Conservation Plan appraisal also has more information if you are interested in more in-depth context, and the last few pages show historic development maps.

There is a lovely short circular walk which takes in the leafy river walk down the Drovers Way (see Stratton Town Trail and the conservation area report above) - ideal for walking the dog.
The famous Civil War battlefield site of Stamford Hill lies to the north-west of the village in the surrounding fields above the woods. The Battle of Stratton was fought here on 16th May 1643. SEE: https://historicengland.org.uk/content/docs/listing/battlefields/stratton/
