Nestled on the North Cornish coastline, just 3 miles south of the vibrant town of Bude, Widemouth Bay makes a picturesque base for a seaside holiday. The family-friendly beach here is popular due to excellent conditions for surfing, body boarding, swimming and exploring the hundreds of fascinating rockpools that appear as the tide drops. The beach also benefits from a lovely newly refurbished café that is open year-round, and several surf schools. Dogs are welcome throughout the year on the southern section of the beach (Black Rock). There is a seasonal dog ban in the summer months on the northern part of the beach.
With several superb holiday cottages available in Widemouth Bay, we’re sure you’ll find the right one for you. Barn Cottage is one of 5 cottages set in 125 acres of rolling countryside with views to the sea, plus the added bonus of a swimming pool, tennis court, games room, play area, and a peacock, geese, ducks, a pet pig, lambs and beautiful woodland walks. Meanwhile, Longstone is a tasteful bungalow that sleeps 4, has a real log fire, and is set on a peaceful road just 3 minutes’ walk from the beach.
