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.

The cottage was cosy, comfortable, spotless and well equipped. It's on a quiet lane in a small village so it was also very peaceful but within a short (very steep hill) walk of two nice pubs, and Tintagel is also easy walking distance. The coast path is a short walk away, and there are lots of other nice walks (coast and moors) within a short drive. Julie was very welcoming and went out of her way to make sure we had all we needed and remained well stocked with wood for the fire box. The carrot cake she baked to welcome us was delicious :o) In short, a really lovely stay and we'd definitely return!

These lovely little cottages are all that you would need and more, the hot tub and sauna are a very welcome addition for the adults after the days adventures. The cottages are ideally located as you can walk through well laid out footpaths straight to Hartland Peninsula where the views are simply stunning. We then walked the coastal paths and back, the children thoroughly loved exploring, the waterfalls, the woods, just about everything. As they raced back to the cottage they still had the energy to play on the climbing frames I was well in need of the hot tub! The owners of the cottage were warm and friendly and simply could not do enough to help, this included lighting the wood burner so that the cottage was toasty. We will return for longer next time!

                                                                                                      5 of 5

Milk, tea coffee, toiletries, all the mod cons, we felt very spoilt A lovely place, I came with my mum and 2 children aged 1 & 3 and the property is accommodating to little ones. We had a lovely holiday and if in the same area would definitely book again
