Rated 4 out of 5 stars

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.

Beautiful beach

Quiet and away from the madness of Bude beach. Fantastic at low tide for rock pools, sandcastles and body boarding. Easy to access if you’re happy to walk across the pebbly part at the top of the beach to reach the sand. Parking very close to the beach.

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

Nearest walk

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This relatively easy walk follows a mixture of country lanes and footpaths. Starting at the Tamar Lakes and extending to path alongside the Bude Canal.

Tamar Lakes

Great place to walk, easy signposted route, there is a cafe at the lakeside but check the days it’s open, early in the week it may be closed even in high summer.

Nearest town

Bude is a buzzing family resort, known for its sprawling, sandy beaches and good surf breaks. Some of Bude’s original Victorian architecture remains, while there are plenty of contemporary attractions to enjoy too.

Also nearby

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.

Set deep in the north Devon countryside, The Rosemoor estate was once the home of Lady Anne Palmer. Lady Anne developed a passion for plants when she met noted plantsman Colllingwood Ingram while recuperating from measles in Spain. Over the next 30 years, she travelled the world to collect specimens for her garden, which she gave to the Royal Horticultural Society in 1988. The estate now comprises 65 acres of land, which includes rose gardens, a winter garden, a fruit and vegetable garden, a formal garden, woodlands, and many stream and lakeside plantings, making Rosemoor an enchanting place to visit whatever the season.

Fanstastic

Spent the best part of the day exploring the walks around the estate and through the fabulous formal and informal gardens, plenty of seating in the grounds to appreciate the flowers, plants and trees, choice of refreshment options from snacks to restaurant, a very good shop and parking very easy, worth the effort to visit.

Gorgeous day out

As an RHS member and regular visit to Hyde Hall I’ve been keen to visit the other gardens so when on holiday nearby, a visit to Rosemoor was a must. It is truly fabulous, we visited on a beautiful, sunny, summer day so we saw it at it’s best but I can see how there is interest whatever time of year you visit.

The staff are friendly and we received a great welcome and explanation of the layout when we arrived, such a lovely touch.

The garden is split into two parts, Lady Anne’s garden which has beautiful trees and planting best seen at a gentle stroll and the more formal gardens laid our directly near the entrance which are also stunning. The cool garden was gorgeous especially on a hot day.

Roses Galore!

The rose collection - one of the largest in the West Country - is very impressive. In full bloom in the summer, the scent of over 2,000 flowers is quite sensational. The Rose Weekend, held in June, was very informative, with advice on growing your own, as well as walks and activities for children.

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.

Summerleaze Beach in Bude is a wide sandy beach well-known for its river and large sea pool. Part natural part man-made, the seal pool was originally opened in 1930 and is replenished with fresh water at each high tide. Great for families, Summerleaze Beach offers plenty of space and is lifeguarded throughout the summer.

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.
