"Toad Hall did not disappoint! Wonderful secluded setting in a perfect location. Bill & Sue were wonderful hosts, very attentive & couldn't do enough to make our stay a pleasurable one. Thank you both very much!" K P A & H


Situated in a peaceful location on the outskirts of the historic North Cornish town of Stratton and just a few minutes from Bude's famous surfing beaches.

The Toad Hall sleeps four with one double bed and two single beds. Your own bathroom and kitchen, an acre of outside space and WIFI.

Our space provides all you need for a fabulous break. The open plan pod areas and the stunning wooden interior provides both a relaxing and cosy accommodation. The double bedroom area has a curtain for privacy. You have all you need for for sleeping, kitchen area for self catering and both space for indoor and out door dining. The shower room consists of a shower with easy access, toilet and basin.

The Pod and the paddock are solely for your use only during your stay.

Stratton is a pretty historic market town and has two excellent pubs and a local shop/post office. 

The River Strat flows trough Stratton and the boundary of the paddock. There are no deep water areas and therefore provides a perfect place for children to play. Our guests are able to enjoy complete peace and privacy in the paddock.

On the road from Stratton to Bude, less than a mile from the Pod, there are 3 supermarkets. Bude itself sits on the stunning North Cornwall coastline, has its own Breakwater, beautiful coastal walks, the famous Bude Canal walks, the famous Bude seapool on Summerleaze Beach and RNLI lifeguarded beaches.

There are regular bus services which will also take you to locations like Tintagel and Boscastle. Plenty of routes to walk and plenty of car parks in Bude when driving.



Outside area

A fenced enclosed garden area around the pod leads to a one acre paddock. Children love feeding the ducks with us at the pond situated behind the pod and the shallow River Strat gently flows along the edge of the paddock, with areas cleared for paddling and dog walking.

"An enjoyable stay in a cosy pod in peaceful surroundings. Comfy beds and warm shower with helpful extras such as milk on arrival and rail for wetsuits. Good location for Bude town and beaches and Bill was a welcoming host."

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Toad Hall pod! Perfect location, perfect hosts! Bill and Sue made us feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The children loved staying at the pod and being given the responsibility of feeding the ducks! Bude town and the beaches are just minutes away. Have highly recommended to family & friends and will definitely be returning."

"We had a great few days at 'Toad Hall' the accommodation is very comfortable and the kids had so much space to run around in the paddock and enjoy the river and duck pond. The hosts were delightful and very welcoming and I would highly recommend a stay here."

“Our stay at Toad Hall was just perfect. The views were amazing, it is such a tranquil setting. We spent a lot of time just lying out in the paddock reading & chilling. We loved the ducks and the girls enjoyed walking up and down the brook by the side of the accommodation. Inside was really lovely and the beds so comfortable, I wanted to take the mattress home lol! Bill was the perfect host and made sure we were settle in and answered any questions we had. Thank you so much, a truly beautiful place you shared with us."
