Cottages in Widemouth Bay, Cornwall a home away from home in surfer's paradise

Widemouth Bay is a stretch of beach and a bay on the north Cornish coastline and is situated three miles from Bude. The large sandy beach becomes more exposed at low tide and has some interesting rock formations. This coast in Cornwall is steeped in smuggling history and has some unusual coves and inlets. The beach with its numerous rock pools is suitable for families and its incredible waves make it popular with surfers.

Places to holiday in Widemouth Bay

Facilities at Widemouth Bay include live surf cams, surf hire and beach shops making it a popular tourist attraction for holidays and short breaks and an ideal base to explore the rest of Cornwall. Naturally you will need somewhere to stay. However, hotels and guest houses are not as popular with tourists as they once were, many preferring the freedom that self-catering accommodation allows.

Holiday parks, camping, caravans are all considered self catering but do not offer the same home from home feel of holiday lodges and cottages. Cornish holidays in Widemouth Bay are convenient for all the awarding winning beaches in the area including Crooklets, Crackington Haven, and Sandymouth and for walking the coastal path.

Staying in a Cornish cottage puts you central to facilities for surfing, walking, fishing, horse riding, golfing, birdwatching, sightseeing and cycling. Some cottages allow you to bring your dog on holiday, rarely an option in a hotel, and the beaches at both Widemouth Bay and Bude permit dog walking in designated areas.

Things to do in Widemouth Bay

Shoreline Extreme Sports in neighbouring Bude offers courses in surf kayaking and canoe marathons. There are several surf schools and shops in the area and other adventure pursuits, such as climbing, coasteering, wind surfing, orienteering, mountain boarding and horse riding. Sea fishing, coarse fishing, and golfing facilities are abundant as are places to eat, drink and enjoy nightlife.

When you have spent enough time on the beach or the weather is not brilliant there are many interesting and historic attractions close to your holiday cottage including Launceston Castle, Tintagel Head and Bude Castle and Heritage Centre. The Harlequinns Leisure centre situated in Bude has superb facilities and offers entertainment whatever the weather. It has ten lanes for ten-pin bowling, Playzones for children, the Snackbowl for meals cooked from local produce and discos in the evenings.

Heritage buildings in the area include Ebbingford Manor, St Michael and All Angels church and the oldest house in Bude, Quay Cottage. Nature lovers can visit the Tamar Valley Donkey Park and Big Sheep in Abbotsham near Bideford or the Tamar Otter and Wildlife Park. Garden lovers will enjoy Merry Harriers Nursery, Docton Mill Gardens, and Pencarrow gardens.

Lovely house in a great location

5 of 5
The property was beautifully clean when we arrived and it was so lovely to see a Christmas tree all lit up and decorated. The house was warm and comfortable with a very nice kitchen. There was plenty of room for everyone and it is very close to the beaches and an easy stroll into town. Nick Compton is a pleasure to deal with and the extra touches like milk in the fridge when you arrive ready for your first cup of tea make all the difference. Elite West are the best letting agents we have dealt with and we look forward to our next holiday booked through them.

Beautiful cottage in a stunning area - warm and cosy with a log burner and underfloor heating

5 of 5
An ideal place to relax and unwind - warm, cosy and welcoming. Ideal for getting away from it all and the owner was so helpful in every way. It is ideal for families with young children with lots of games and books in house for youngsters to keep them amused as is it ideal for couples looking to escape and relax - can't wait to return
