Nearest pub

The New Inn (1 ¼ miles)

Both locals and visitors alike will enjoy a visit to this traditional village pub. Once a brew house, nowadays you'll find real ales and ciders alongside home cooked pub food and daily specials. There's an enclosed beer garden for alfresco dining during summer.

Nearest beach

Duckpool Beach (2 ¼ miles)

A short drive from Bude, Duckpool Beach sits within a stretch of dramatic coastline. Bordered by cliffs, the sand and pebble beach neighbours beautiful woodlands. With lots of walking routes around the cove and in the surrounding woodland, Duckpool Beach is an explorer's haven. The beach is best enjoyed from the shore though, as swimming is advised against due to strong currents. No lifeguards are present.

Slightly scrambly walks up the cliffs on either side. Worth a visit

Nearest walk

Morwenstow Circular (2 ¼ miles)

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.

Nearest town

Welcombe (3 ¾ miles)

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.

Also nearby

The Old Smithy (3 ¾ miles)

Once the local blacksmiths, this friendly local now hosts monthly folk nights. Drop in for a bite to eat in the beer garden or enjoy a pint of real ale in front of the log fire.

Excellent food (beef and chorizo burger was a joy) and very welcoming to us and our four month old daughter. Friendly people and the beer selection looked frustratingly good but I was unfortunately driving. I will definitely go again next time I'm in the area. Real pub, real ale, proper food and friendly people...how a pub should be.

Visit the Welcombe Pottery around lunchtime and stay for a meal at the quirky, retro and very child friendly Old Smithy Inn: good value, friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Great to find a proper, country pub that serves good beer, good food AND genuinely likes children!

Fantastic rustic pub

Fantastic rustic pub, great food. A really chilled out place. Nice garden area to sit outside. Children's menu. 2 real fires in winter. 5 min drive from Welcombe Mouth beach - our favourite watering hole!

Killock Farm Shop (2 miles)

Very useful farm shop for vegetables, some fruit, baked goods etc. Go there first before supermarket!

Sandy Mouth Beach (2 ¾ miles)

Set between Bude and Morwenstow, Sandymouth Beach takes in sweeping views of the coast. At low tide, it is possible to walk the two mile stretch leading towards Bude. If you want to enjoy a different perspective on the way back the coast path above the cliffs makes for a scenic route home. Looked after by the National Trust, the beach has a manned car park with lots of space. On the beach visitors can enjoy a tumbling waterfall and make use of the available facilities, including cafe, toilets and water sports equipment hire.

Mr Mearns September 2015

Great beach

As noted before this is national trust so free parking if you are a member or £4.50 for the day. It's a short walk down a steep incline past a decent cafe and shop and clean loos. It's a rocky beach at high tide but a fantastic sandy beach at low tide- you get lots of lovely sandy pools which are perfect for toddlers. It's also great for crabbing at low and high tide. Also has life guards. Surf was decent enough for body boarding. Overall great beach and not hugely busy when we were there ( late August)

This is a lovely beach for both children and (novice in our case) surfers. The path down from the car park is steep but worth it. At the bottom you have a bit of a scramble over big pebbles to reach the sand but once there it's great. Watch out for the tide coming in and be ready to move back quickly! The car park charge was £4.50 but that let you stay all day. There is a nice cafe with outdoor seating and clean public loos. We spent all our beach days here.

Welcombe Pottery (3 ¼ miles)

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!

The Bush Inn (2 ¼ miles)

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.

Tasty food

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.
