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)

This beach lives up to its name, being a very wide stretch of sand which has a section open to dogs all year round. There is lots of parking and several surf schools as it is a great location for watersports.

Widemouth bay is lovely, we've stayed near here a few times and it never disappoints.

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

Widemouth Bay (¾ 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.

Great for rock pools

A great sized beach with a mixture of sand and lots of rock pools. Very well staffed by the RNLI so felt very safe with my 4 year old. Surfing lessons are available and there were people kite surfing as well. A great cafe serving great coffee and quality food. The only downside is that the sand is very gritty so harsh on your knees while building sand castles.

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!

Good food, reasonably priced

We popped in in the middle of February after a good walk on the beach. The staff were welcoming and the food perfectly adequate (nice Cheesy Chips!)

Fantastic fresh locally caught seafood in modern restaurant in the most fabulous location just above the beach with great views.

Millook Haven Beach (2 ½ miles)

This small peaceful cove is famous for its zigzag formation towering high above the shore. The shingle beach provides a haven for those wanting to wave watch or observe the wildlife. Why not take a wander south to Butterfly Valley?

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.

Beach House Wet Fish (¾ mile)

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

Excellent food, lovely garden, child-friendly atmosphere

A really nice pub with a lovely garden for the kids to run around in. We ate there several times and the food was always excellent. Some dishes were a little overpriced, but on the whole, good value.
