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.

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.

Great village pub within 5 minutes walk serving very tasty home cooked food, 40 min easy flat walk along the canal to Bude with beaches, shops and restaurants. We also visited stunning Tintagel and Boscastle an easy drive away. Owners Gareth & Jenny were swift to respond to all communications and thoughtfully provided chocolates, milk and essential Prosecco on arrival. Also a decorated Christmas tree... What more could you ask for?

Had a wonderful Christmas with the family in this house, it was perfect where we could all be together, It is very well looked after and every room had its own ensuite which is perfect when there is 10 of you. Thank you for allowing us to stay in this wonderful house in a fab location :-)
