Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Think Millook Haven Beach and the first thing that comes to mind is geology. Taking pride of place in the cliffs behind the beach are the world famous zigzag folds. Sit on the pebbly foreshore and take in nature's marvellous designs. From the rolling surf to the fascinating cliffs, Millook Haven Beach offers a feast for the eyes. The beach is dog-friendly year-round. There are no lifeguards.

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.

Nearest walk

This is a challenging three and a half mile walk with varied terrain including steep hills, stiles and steps. The views alone from the cliff tops will make the effort worthwhile and the return journey takes in lovely woodland.

Nearest town

A pretty Cornish village with a good pub and a couple of cafes. The coast path conveniently runs through the village so it makes for an ideal stopping off point. The beach is close by and a great place to spend the day. Situated in between north coast favourites Bude and Boscastle, Crackington Haven is well worth a visit.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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.

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 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.

One of the few sheltered harbours on the north coast, Boscastle became famous in 2004 due to the devastating floods that swept through the village. The community has recovered remarkably well, and Boscastle is once more a thriving resort and a lovely village to visit.

Staying in Boscastle

Boscastle was a wonderful place to stay for our holiday. Good local shops, like the post office and Spar for provisions. We tried several pubs. The Napoleon, the Wellington (for Sunday lunch = yum) and the Old Manor house. I would recommend the Boscastle made ice-cream from a shop half way down the harbour walk on the left hand side as you walk towards the sea.
We thoroughly enjoyed sitting for ages, watching the blowhole in the harbour. It 'blow's about 1-1.5 hrs either side of low tide, and is amazing to watch, and listen to aswell.
There is a really enjoyable walk from the main car-park along the Valency river, which is flat, unless you decide to go up to Minster church, and that path is very steep.
We didn't rate the Tourist shops very highly, because everything was so expensive.

Delightful place; harbour and old village up the hill. Fine coast walks to either Tintagel or Crackington Haven with options of bus connections. Also local valley/wood walks. Recommend Cobwebs pub at the harbour and The Napoleon up in the village. If self catering, the farm shop about half mile out of village towards Crackington Haven on B3263, is worth a visit.

Boscastle

Wonderful old harbour village - beautiful scenery can be seen from the headland which can be reached by two different paths, one on the right by the Harbour Light and one on the left. A tiny cove is also accessible where the blowhole can also be seen. Some lovely places to eat in Boscastle. We ate a lovely meal at the Cobweb Inn and also at the Riverside. We had cream teas and breakfast at the Harbour Light and Bridge Guest House, but the Riverside provided the best breakfast EVER. Some lovely shops such as the Mill and Things as well as an art gallery, fudge and Rock shop and 2 other fab gift shops. We love Boscastle and have been there many times. The Museum of Witchcraft also interesting. Visitor centre provides maps and info and also information about the flood and general history. Tintagel is 5 mins away and Crackington Haven about 10-15 mins drive as is Port Isaac. Padstow about 40 mins.
