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.

Watched the huge waves of Storm Brian from the lounge, just amazing to be so close, but warm and cosy inside. Plenty of space ( and cups ! ) for 10 of us. Jackie was as responsive as always to any queries and offers no hassle booking. Planning our next visit !.

The entrance was somewhat vexed and the pub people smoking near our door but once inside we were very cosy. It was a great place to enjoy all that Port Isaac has to offer, being close to everything and wonderful for beach combing. Bringing our cases down the hill in the wind and rain was very hard but added the the quirkiness of the whole holiday. We would certainly return and recommend Tides Reach to anyone wanting an interesting place to stay. Thank you Laurence.
