These are some of the best beaches in Cornwall so don't miss the chance to try your surfing or 'boogie' boarding skils. There are a number of surf schools in the area.

For Walkers and Cyclists the area is full of superb routes and Bude lies at the centre of the most dramatic stretch of the South West coastal footpath. There are numerous local villages and landmarks to explore and much of the area ia a nature lovers paradise. Bude is only a couple of minutes down the road and has the full range of facilities that one would expect of a small town including a wide range of shops, pubs & restaurant.

I have been to Aaslmeer on several occasions, I try to get there at least one a year (vacancy allowing) Every time I go the owner has done something to improve it and it is nice to see that they reinvest the money they make by letting it. The view cannot be beaten so even in bad weather it is still a pleasure to be there, and it is always warm thanks to the Aga. It really feels like my own private holiday home, only wish it was! And my dog loves being so close to the beach, he has to go down at least once a day or he sits looking out of the window whining!

Our stay at Aalsmeer was very comfortable and enjoyable. The location was perfect for the beach, where our daughter, 11, enjoyed body boarding in the waves. You can learn to surf there too. There were excellent food places within walking and short drive distance. The property looks out over the sea, and although the furniture was a little dated, it was comfortable, spacious and had everything you needed. The only down side was the electric metre which requires old AGBP1 coins which we had to specifically ask for in shops as they become more rare! Hopefully this will be updated very soon! Overall a very nice stay in a wonderful location.

Good value cottage in a wonderful location
Reviewed on 25/05/2017

This bungalow in Widemouth Bay could not have a better location, with beautiful views across the sea and along the coast. It has nearby access to the beach and is ideal for dog walkers and surfers. The closest path, however, is narrow at the top so anyone with a buggy to push or wheelchair would probably prefer to go along the road to the cafe entrance. It's also a good base for walks along the stunning South West Coast path. The cottage itself is comfortable with a new-looking fully equipped kitchen and plenty of utensils and good quality crockery. The bathroom also looks new and has a bath and good shower. The furniture in the main bedroom is a bit older, but is kept clean and there is lots of storage space. It can be a bit warm inside on hotter days as the water and radiators are fed by a Rayburn with few controls. However, the owner dealt with this minor problem very quickly and sent a plumber who sorted things very efficiently the next day, and rang us to check all was OK. Don't be too concerned about the meter to pay for electricity. I think we used about 5 pound coins all week! To eat there is the Bay View Inn to the East and Widemouth Manor up the hill to the West; both offer friendly service and good food at a reasonable cost. All in all a good place for a coastal Cornish break.

It was an enjoyable week and we were lucky with the weather. We had a beautiful view from the cottage window of the sea with some lovely sunsets. The cottage was well equiped and comfortable. There was one thing we didn't like, and that was there was no way of turning the Rayburn down and we were experiencing temperatures of 25 and 30 degrees outside and the Rayburn made the rooms far too hot. The back bed room especially. Also the lawn with the outdoor furniture was far too high for me too climb up on to it, with no slope to it for anyone with leg problems. Apart from that it was great.

This is a lovely bungalow in an idyllic location looking out over the Atlantic Ocean. So peaceful and quiet, it helped melt our stresses away.

The bedrooms are large and comfortable and you can wake up looking at the ocean from the front bedroom. Spectacular sunset views from the front room make the views very special in deed.

We stayed for a week, four adults and one dog. On arrival the house was warm and cosy with the sun streaming in from the large bay window in the lounge and reflecting off of the sea, the view was spectacular and even more so when the sun started to set. You had to watch the sun set from this position every day, along with a glass of wine, of course. The beach is literally across the road, which was lovely for the dog that was able to swim everyday. If you want a great meal, visit the Bay View Inn, just a minute down the road. The food is lovely, and the staff are very entertaining. Do not be put off by the electric meter we only put three pounds in and there was plenty electric left when we finished our week. We will definitely stay here again and can't wait, it is a real home from home.

We were always warm and despite using all the electrical items, washing machine and dishwasher we only managed to put in about AGBP5 all week!! The house has not been updated in some time and is rather 'tired', that said it was comfortable and everything worked well. The house had all the equipment it needed too. I felt a little sad that the place felt unloved, it is crying out for a deep clean in the kitchen and some upgraded bed linen! However we would definitely stay again, it was great. Thanks also to the owner for the speedy response to a couple of queries during our stay

Aalsmeer was homely and comfortable but I must admit the best bit was the view. To wake each morning and see the sea was second to none. Having the bathroom and shower room was really useful. No fighting for the bathroom.

Aga not turned on, got chilly in the evenings. Wifi kept going on and off. Electric meter should be updated, so you dont have to put money in it. Cleaning should be better, found cobwebs. Bedding and curtains a bit old fashioned. Otherwise we had great weather all week, the sunsets from the lounge window were great. Location was great, just had to walk across the road to get to the beach with the dog for walks.

Aalsmeer is one of the older properties at Widemouth Bay, which I must say is preferable, the Bungalow has all you need & was lovely and warm with the Arga running the heating. It's the loacation that makes the property perfect.

This is a spacious bungalow with an absolutely WONDERFUL view across the Bay. It has everything one could need in a self catering accommodation. We had wonderfull weather and would book there again if mainly for the location. It's very near to Bude with lots of shops, pubs, etc. The bungalow could have been a bit cleaner, but that didn't spoil our stay. It's comfortable and very peaceful.

Delightful stay at Aalsmeer
Reviewed on 24/03/2015

Aalsmeer in Widemouth Bay is a very cosy, and spacious place to stay. There is ample accommodation for families and couples alike, with stunning views from the front overlooking the sea. The sunsets are fantastic to watch after a long day either walking along the coastal walks, or after spending the day at the beach. The beach is extremely close by and during the peak holiday season, a section of the beach is available if you have dogs. I would highly recommend anyone who is looking for a cottage close to the beach, pub / eatery and that accepts pets to stay at Aalsmeer.

Room with a view
Reviewed on 03/11/2014

This bungalow was very well equipped with spacious accommodation and all domestic amenities. In particular, the AGA was a very nice addition and kept us warm and a great facility to cook on. Heated floor in the bathroom and the separate power shower were great! A fantastic location for Widemouth Bay, particularly if you're a surfer, and/or you have dogs, as the West Beach is dog friendly. Parking on the drive for two; and maybe three cars depending on length of vehicles. Beautiful views from the main bedroom and lounge of the west of Widemouth Bay. Bude is a few miles up the coast and Newquay is about an hours drive South with many beautiful coastal villages in between. I will definitely return in warmer months.

Second lovely stay at Widemouth Bay
Reviewed on 04/08/2014

Our second time around Aalsmeer and we were delighted with the improvements made since last year. The new bathroom was great. The new television set up was appreciated. The wifi made things much simpler. The cottage is situated right on the front and there is a footpath straight to the beach. There's 3 pubs in Widemouth but we only tried two of them. Bay View gets really busy and you will always need to book in advance. The Manor is at the other end of Widemouth and we had more luck getting a table. Both pubs are child friendly and offer great food. They both have great beer gardens. Bude is a short drive away where there are the usual seaside shops and a Morrisons supermarket.

Reviewed on 06/05/2014

Lovely to be able to sit and look out at the sea and the surfers and walk along the beach across the road. We enjoyed the sunny kitchen for breakfast and then afternoon sun and sunsets in the sitting room. Furniture and decor are charming which I much prefer to a modern sterile apartments. Aga was brilliant at keeping us warm, providing lots of hot water and drying clothes after our one rainy day. Delightful books and jigsaws, and large TV kept us entertained though there was no DAB reception for our radios. Comfortable and practical throughout. Couldn't find a tea towel so we got one and left it for future visitors. Only had to put about AGBP5 in electric meter. Good location for exploring the coast to north and south. Some leaflets and information about the area would have been nice. The little church nearby is well worth a visit. Walkers be warned the coastal path down to Milook is very steep and slippery - the road back is equally steep! Elements Restaurant provided our best lunch.

We had a lovely time staying at Aalsmeer over Christmas. The views are INCREDIBLE from this property with access to lovely walks along the beach. Unfortunately the hot water in the main bathroom was not very reliable. The electric meter got a bit annoying and the extra cost not appreciated after already spending a lot on renting the property.

Reviewed on 14/10/2013

Wonderful property. The best place we have ever stayed in and as we are in our mid 50s that is saying a lot. As we are dog owners the property was ideally suited with a decent size secure back garden and access to the back from the front so wet sandy dogs could be put into the back garden and then brought into the light airy garage to be dried and brushed, so often a problem when on holiday. The porch was great for leaving wet sandy shoes and coats so as not to mess up the carpets. The lounge was of a very good size with 2 comfortable settees and a good size TV. and a table and chairs. The kitchen was big and very well equipted with both washing machine, tumble dryer and dish washer, plus another table and chairs. Although the electric was by meter we only put in

Aalsmeer, Widemouth Bay, Cornwall
Reviewed on 07/10/2013

The bungalow was comfy with great views of the sea from the living room and double bedroom. Aga was on which was very useful for drying towels etc and kept the kitchen nice and cosy (even though it was a bit noisy). Living area was also very comfortable and spacious. Fully equipped kitchen but bath needs attention (not everyone prefers a shower!). However, no-one was there to meet us when we arrived. The first night a light bulb blew and took out the light trip switch. I telephoned the owner and the caretaker but both calls went to voicemail, where a message was left, so no immediate help was available. No instructions in property on where the trip switches were so I was struggling in the dark to find them! (Nor indeed any guides on use for any of the kitchen/laundry equipment). I did finally manage to find and reset the trip switch with the help of a phone call to my husband over 100 miles away! That said, we did enjoy our holiday in Cornwall. Was not impressed that Cornwalls Cottages Ltd added a small percentage on cost of holiday for using a credit card (which was not made clear until the point of paying) and also tagged the credit card for an extra
