The North Cornish coast is stunning and unspoilt here. The cliffs are some of the highest and most rugged in the country, with spectacular views up and down the coast and across to Lundy Island. It is a wonderful area for glorious walks and bird watching. There are plenty of circular routes, taking in both the cliffs and wooded valleys. In the spring, there is an abundance of flowers on the cliffs with primroses, bluebells and wild garlic in the woods and valleys. Peregrine falcons, stonechats, ravens, cormorants and oystercatchers are all regularly seen. There are seals and dolphins in the coastal waters and in the warmer months basking sharks have been spotted from the cliffs. The nearby beaches have wide expanses of clean sand at low tide. There is something for everyone. Some beaches have full facilities including lifeguard cover for surfers and swimmers, refreshments, and toilets; others have almost total seclusion and involve a long walk down — and even longer up! Rockpools invite exploration to the curious and to budding young marine biologists. Bude has three main beaches, Crooklets, Summerleaze & Widemouth. North of Bude is Northcott, Sandymouth & Duckpool beaches. All except the latter have Lifeguard cover.
The closest beach is Sandymouth, which is large and ideal for families, due to its lovely sand, rock pools and tea room. A short drive north over the border into Devon leads to the quaint village of Hartland, which has a magnificent church with an amazing painted ceiling and one of the tallest towers in England. Hartland Quay has a hotel and Wreckers Bar, as the coast here is littered with wrecks and is a lovely spot for some lunch. Also well worth a visit, is the world-famous fishing village of Clovelly. The cobbled, traffic-free, high street is built into a cleft in a 400' high cliff and tumbles its way down past whitewashed cottages festooned with flowers to the tiny working port.
Bude is Cornwall's most northern town and has been a favourite seaside resort since Victorian times. The coastal scenery surrounding the beaches, is quite beautiful, boasting some of the finest sandy beaches and the best surfing in England! The town has excellent facilities and a wide selection of interesting, independent shops. This idyllic area has a large amount of birdlife for the dedicated twitcher and some wonderful, scenic walks along the South West coastal path. The centre of Bude is a lively hub with concerts, dances and fetes, as well as other events throughout the season, including an annual Carnival Week. The town has a host of pubs, cafes and restaurants to suit every palate and there is a new Visitor’s Centre in the Crescent car park, a large children's play area, a 19th-century canal and a small wharf, amongst many other attractions. Bude is also home to the internationally acclaimed Jazz Festival, which takes place each August.
