Situated just a mile from the sea, this 13th century traditional thatched inn has a large sunny beer garden and ample outdoor seating. With countryside views and a roaring log fire to keep you warm in winter this is a great place to head for.
Welcombe Mouth Beach is tucked over the Devon border just north of Bude. With unique rock features protruding from the sand, the secluded cove is best visited at low tide. Fairly difficult to find, Welcombe Mouth Beach offers peace and tranquillity in a beautiful setting.
Well worth the drive down a very narrow lane, but parking for not much more than 10-15 cars at the end. Waterfall, cliffs, rocks and sand at low water. We saw some surfing there in spite of rocks.
A two and a half mile walk which is fairly strenuous so don't be mislead into thinking it's an easy stroll by the short mileage. It's worth the effort though as you'll take in woodland and coastal path with some amazing views. You'll also pass a pub and tea rooms giving options for a well earned break. Take a look at the iwalkcornwall website for further details and other lovely local walks.
The majority of those holidaying in North Devon never stumble across Welcombe, yet they are missing out on one of the area’s prettiest villages. Straddling a deep valley, Welcombe is divided by a stream which winds its way to the cliff edge and drops to the sea in a picturesque waterfall. A few miles down the coast is Bude, with half a dozen beaches and pubs, cafes and restaurants galore, but the idyllic atmosphere of Welcombe may prove difficult to leave.
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!
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.
David Westcott and Alice Gare run the pottery and offer both earthenware and Raku pots to buy along with pottery courses.
Worth a trip for anyone interested in functional or decorative ceramics in refreshingly modern and usable designs. Mrs Potter, Alice is lovely and tolerated our 22 month old having a very close look/picking everything up!
A community based village shop run completely by volunteers and open every morning apart from Sundays. If you'd like a delivery to be at your property in time for your arrival use the attached Web site to place an order.
Once a haunt for smugglers and wreckers, this 13th Century freehouse has provided sustenance for weary travellers for centuries. Today you can dine on fresh, local produce, or enjoy a refreshing pint after a hard day’s stomp on the coast path. The log fire, large beer garden and children’s play-area make it ideal for all seasons. Booking is advisable.
Simple but tasty food. My partner had a very generous ploughman's and the beer garden is a great place to enjoy it. Was driving so didn't have a beer but the selection looked good. We'd go back again.
Excellent quality food & drink
We came here twice in a week, had 2 fantastic meals, great for kids & families, lovely location, would certainly both recommend and come again!
Good food, pleasant, simple surroundings.
A lovely warm and welcoming atmosphere and the food is excellent.
With stunning views over the ocean you can sit and enjoy a meal outside (weather permitting) or sit inside and warm up when it's inclement.
Enjoyed several visits here after walking the coastal pathway
