Excellent location and service

We rented a cottage a mile from the pub and visited on four occasions, eating twice. On all occasions the service, in these difficult times, was fast and efficient. Wonderful location, a stones throw from the beach, highly recommend

Good location, but food overpriced. Salad straight out of the fridge and tomato and cucumber colder than the nippy April day

Nearest beach

Thorn's Beach (¼ mile)

This is definitely a beach for those looking to head off the beaten track. Accessible via a relatively long walk and steep descent aided by a rope, Thorn's Beach is as rugged as it is beautiful. A rocky beach, swimming is possible under certain conditions but it is prone to heavier swells. As you would expect, there are no facilities nearby.

Nearest walk

Crackington Haven Circular Walk (½ mile)

This is a challenging three and a half mile walk with varied terrain including steep hills, stiles and steps. The views alone from the cliff tops will make the effort worthwhile and the return journey takes in lovely woodland.

Nearest town

Boscastle (4 ¾ miles)

One of the few sheltered harbours on the north coast, Boscastle became famous in 2004 due to the devastating floods that swept through the village. The community has recovered remarkably well, and Boscastle is once more a thriving resort and a lovely village to visit.

Staying in Boscastle

Boscastle was a wonderful place to stay for our holiday. Good local shops, like the post office and Spar for provisions. We tried several pubs. The Napoleon, the Wellington (for Sunday lunch = yum) and the Old Manor house. I would recommend the Boscastle made ice-cream from a shop half way down the harbour walk on the left hand side as you walk towards the sea.
We thoroughly enjoyed sitting for ages, watching the blowhole in the harbour. It 'blow's about 1-1.5 hrs either side of low tide, and is amazing to watch, and listen to aswell.
There is a really enjoyable walk from the main car-park along the Valency river, which is flat, unless you decide to go up to Minster church, and that path is very steep.
We didn't rate the Tourist shops very highly, because everything was so expensive.

Delightful place; harbour and old village up the hill. Fine coast walks to either Tintagel or Crackington Haven with options of bus connections. Also local valley/wood walks. Recommend Cobwebs pub at the harbour and The Napoleon up in the village. If self catering, the farm shop about half mile out of village towards Crackington Haven on B3263, is worth a visit.

Boscastle

Wonderful old harbour village - beautiful scenery can be seen from the headland which can be reached by two different paths, one on the right by the Harbour Light and one on the left. A tiny cove is also accessible where the blowhole can also be seen. Some lovely places to eat in Boscastle. We ate a lovely meal at the Cobweb Inn and also at the Riverside. We had cream teas and breakfast at the Harbour Light and Bridge Guest House, but the Riverside provided the best breakfast EVER. Some lovely shops such as the Mill and Things as well as an art gallery, fudge and Rock shop and 2 other fab gift shops. We love Boscastle and have been there many times. The Museum of Witchcraft also interesting. Visitor centre provides maps and info and also information about the flood and general history. Tintagel is 5 mins away and Crackington Haven about 10-15 mins drive as is Port Isaac. Padstow about 40 mins.

Northcott Mouth Beach (7 ¾ miles)

Visit this unspoiled beach and fall in love with the breathtaking views. If you head to Northcott Mouth Beach at low tide you may be able to see the remnants of the steamship ‘Belem’ which ran aground here in 1917. At high tide, you can take in the stunning panoramas from the clifftops surrounding the beach. A secluded haven as it is, there are no facilities nearby.

Amazing dog friendly beach. Very clean and scenery amazing. Lifeguards present so makes you feel safe. There is the Rustic Tearooms nearby serving hot food and drinks. Only problem , no toilets!

Excellent beach

A wonderful beach and much quieter than Bude. An added bonus is the Rustic Tea Garden which is a lovely cafe just behind the beach. You can eat in their lovely garden or take away back to the beach. Great hot dogs, jacket potatoes and very yummy cakes.

Crackington Haven (½ mile)

Near to Bude, Crackington Haven is a little village nestled in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Once famous for importing coal from Wales, the village’s beach is now a firm family-favourite for long days spent flicking between sea and sand. Surrounded by high cliffs and beautiful countryside, Crackington Haven offers a scenic escape.

A wonderful day on the beach

A quiet, secluded and sheltered beach. Not very busy, but very lovely. There is a car park and a very short stroll onto the beach. The beach is pebbley/rocky. It is sheltered due to the headlands. We sat and read, soaked up the sunshine, had a paddle in the sea and took photos. A short walk enabled us to get a takeaway cup of tea to bring back to the beach. Perfect!

Millook Haven Beach (2 ¾ miles)

Think Millook Haven Beach and the first thing that comes to mind is geology. Taking pride of place in the cliffs behind the beach are the world famous zigzag folds. Sit on the pebbly foreshore and take in nature's marvellous designs. From the rolling surf to the fascinating cliffs, Millook Haven Beach offers a feast for the eyes. The beach is dog-friendly year-round. There are no lifeguards.

Millook beach

We were driving along the scenic (and rather steep in places) coastal route from Crackington Haven to Bude, and stumbled upon this place. Travelling north, the first thing you see is the spectacular zigzag rock formations on the cliff. We had to stop and investigate. There isn't a car park - but luckily there was enough room on the roadside. It is a rocky beach. The colours and patterns in the rock make the stop a must to view and photograph the amazingness of natures forces.

St Kew Inn (15 miles)

This 15th Century village pub was once home to the masons and craftsmen who constructed the nearby church of St James the Great. Today, you will find a welcoming bar and restaurant, with blazing fire in the winter, and a large beer garden for those balmy Cornish summer evenings. Look out for the resident ghost.

Due to COVID, we booked the St Kew Inn well in advance of our stay at the Carriage House.
The pub is within walking distance from the Carriage house, down hill all the way, but consequently up hill all the way back!
The food was delicious, service extremely good, and a bonus for us was meeting our waitress, Faye, who happily gave us some suggestions as to what to do whilst visiting Cornwall. The first was to cycle the Camel trail from Wadebridge to Padstow. It was a truly stunning way to visit Padstow. And on our second visit to the pub Faye suggested we could visit Charlestown. Again, we are so grateful for that advice. We wouldn’t have experienced either had it not been for Faye.
The ‘fish of the day’ was well worth it too!
We felt very safe, and all the measures to ensure that guests met the government guidance were in place. Thank you to all at the St Kew Inn.

Hidden Gem

We had two meals at St Kew Inn whilst on holiday in Cornwall and thoroughly enjoyed both meals. The service was attentive but not intrusive, the food was absolutely delicious and there is a good choice to choose from. Good beers and good prices too, if we go back to Cornwall we will definitely be booking a meal at St Kew Inn.

Excellent Food

The St Kew Inn does excellent food. It is not cheap but very good value for money. My wife said that the hake she had one evening was the best fish she had tasted for many years - cooked to perfection. You need to book early to get a table in the restaurant, but can also take pot luck in the bar where the tables are not reserved. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Beautiful and Atmospheric

Picturesque 15th Century village pub serving beer from wooden barrels and excellent homecooked food prepared to order by hosts Paul Ripley and Sarah Allen. One of the most beautiful and atmospheric pubs in Cornwall.

Widemouth Beach (4 ¼ miles)

Just along the coast from the busy resort of Bude, Widemouth is a long, long stretch of sand backed by high cliffs. Unusual rock formations on the beach are a magnet for climbers while the Atlantic surf brings bodyboarders, kayakers and surfers here in their hundreds. Widemouth Bay is home to a scattering of houses, pubs, cafes and restaurants but there remains a definitive sense of having strayed off the beaten path here. There is a section open to dogs all year round, loads of parking and several surf schools.
