“Great location as we have seen amazing parts of Devon and Cornwall using this lovely cottage as a base.”
If it’s beaches you’re after, you’ve come to the right place. Cornwall has some of the best beaches in the world, from vast expanses of sand with rolling surf to sheltered coves with rock pools, perfect for paddling or crabbing. We’re just over two miles from the coast, so whatever type of beach you’re looking for, we can point you in the right direction.
Here are some of our favourites:
Beautiful National Trust beach with lots of sand at low tide and plenty of rock pools. Café, toilets and surf school, plus a lovely walk along the cliffs into Bude.
Small, pebbly beach, which reveals expanses of sand and rock pools at low tide. And yes, there is a pool with ducks on it! Our favourite spot for late evening fish and chips as the sun goes down.
Off the beaten track, smaller and often quieter than the other beaches. Look out for the Old Man of Welcombe.
Summerleaze and Crooklets
These adjoining beaches in Bude are always popular thanks to their wide, open stretches of sand, good facilities and surf school. The iconic Sea Pool lies between them.
Another big sandy beach great for families with plenty of facilities including surf schools.
Fantastic cliffs and rock formations. An ideal spot for wave watching especially on windy days.
Vast sandy expanse, popular with surfers, windsurfers and lovers of big skies.
