The location of attractions is intended only as a guide. Distances are 'as the crow flies'.

Nearest pub

The Tree Inn (1 mile)

Emma and Bob create a very welcoming vibe and the food is spot on too! Enjoy a classic pub lunch in the courtyard which is a real sun trap.

Nearest beach

Maer High Cliff (1 ¼ miles)

This beach is accessed via the coastal path, the top section of the beach is mostly stony and at low tide a mass of fine yellow sand is revealed. The beach is prone to being cut off by high tide, so it is advisable to check tide times when planning your visit.

Nearest walk

Bude Coast and Canal Walk (1 ½ miles)

Take your dog on this walk as it passes a beach and has the advantage of pubs en-route where dogs are welcome. Starting with a gentle climb out of Bude this is a lovely five and a half mile walk which takes in the Coastal Path, farmland and the canal towpath.

Nearest town

Bude (1 ¼ miles)

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

Life's a Beach (1 ¼ 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.

Bude-Stratton Museum (1 ½ miles)

The museum is set in the castle and offers an interesting insight into life in Bude, its varied geology, history and its progression from a port to most recently a surfing centre. Education facilities, a shop and restaurant are on site and the restaurant has stunning views.

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

Sandy Mouth Beach (2 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.

Widemouth Beach (3 ¾ miles)

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.

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.
