Discover Widemouth Bay on the North Cornish coast

Widemouth Bay has long gone under the radar as one of the best beach holiday destinations that North Cornwall has to offer. Its rugged coastline and long sandy beach is contrasted by the brooding drama of the Celtic Sea. The ebbing tide reveals a plenitude of rock pools, marked by the iconic “Black Rock”. Widemouth Bay beach is ideal for family days out, with its golden sands and gentle surf, and not forgetting its spectacular sunsets. The entire coastline is rich in maritime and smuggling history, with plenty of secret coves and inlets waiting to be discovered. Widemouth Bay has two beach shops, surfboards for hire, and is patrolled by lifeguards throughout the summer season. Close by, is the harbour town of Bude; a historic settlement set on the mouth of the River Neet that has been voted Best UK Coastal Resort for two years running.

Surrounded by acres of unspoilt countryside is Barn Cottage. This upside down conversion dates back to the 1800s and boasts spectacular coastal views. Barn Cottage is one of a complex of five conversions, all within a mile of Widemouth’s golden sandy beaches, and sleeps up to five guests. It’s also one of our many dog-friendly holiday cottages.

Driftwood is a charming old coachman’s cottage that has been lovingly updated. Positioned only yards from the beach path, guests can also enjoy an enclosed rear courtyard garden. This two bedroomed dwelling sleeps up to four guests and is also one of our dog-friendly cottages. A seven night stay at Driftwood cottage will cost you as little as £395.

Set in the gorgeous Cornish countryside is Goose Cottage, a stylish and contemporary barn conversion with dramatic views of Widemouth Bay. Here, you’ll be surrounded by woodland walks and coastal paths. Take a short trip to the historic harbour town of Bude, or discover King Arthur’s legendry castle on the rocks at Tintagel. Goose Cottage sleeps up to six guests and has the added bonus of a swimming pool and tennis court.

‘Mucklows’ is a delightful two bedroomed cottage set in the heart of north Kernow. This slate-clad dwelling has magnificent balcony views towards the headland and lies close to the sandy beaches of Widemouth Bay.
