Bay View inn

Booking is essential or you won't get a table. Food was fantastic and a good outdoor area for kids to play in while waiting. They will need it, as it is quite a wait for food, but worth every minute

Nearest beach

Widemouth Beach (1 mile)

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.

Great beach for surfing and swimming due to waves and lifeguards on duty.

Nearest walk

Planekeepers Path (1 mile)

A walk of approximately 10 miles which starts from Marhamchurch Square and follows country lanes and footpaths. The route is signposted and its name derives from the term "inclined plane" which is a system used on some canals for raising boats between water levels.

Nearest town

Marhamchurch (1 mile)

This quaint village with some lovely thatched cob cottages lies on the disused canal just two miles from south-east Bude. It was founded as a monastic settlement by St Morwenna and ever year, on the Monday after 12th August, the ancient Marhamchurch Revel is held to celebrate the Saints good works.

Also nearby

Northcott Mouth Beach (3 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.

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.

Beach House Wet Fish (¾ mile)

Lobster, sea bass, monkfish, crab, whatever's in season, fresh off the boat.

First class food

Every dish we ordered was delicious.

Delicious locally caught fresh fish at a very reasonable price and also useful for essential supplies.

Crooklets Beach (3 miles)

Crooklets is an expansive sandy beach that joins up with neighbouring Summerleaze and Northcott Mouth at low tide. Popular with families and lifeguarded from May to September, it has been known to get quite busy in the summer. Visitors can make use of the array of facilities available at Crooklets, including a car park, children's play area and skate park, eateries, showers and more.

Life's a Beach (2 ½ miles)

Not just a beach cafe but also an ice cream parlour and beach shop. The cafe turns into a restaurant in the evening where local seafood is a speciality. Try to dine on the veranda overlooking Summerleaze, wonderful during the light summer evenings.

Excellent food, lovely location

Really nice atmosphere - quite casual at lunch, but a little more sophisticated in the evenings. Really good food - exceeds expectations of a beach-side cafe!
