About the neighbourhood
Widemouth Bay sits just south of Bude on the Atlantic coastline of North Cornwall. Year by year its flat sandy beach is awarded the top standard for excellent water quality in the MCS Good Beach Guide, and it also boasts the coveted 'Blue Flag' award being considered the gold standard for beaches internationally. Facing directly west, the sunsets over the sea each evening are nothing short of spectacular. Offering something for everyone, Widemouth Bay is popular with families and surfers alike, and being self-sufficient with a general store, fresh fish shop, beach cafes and two great local pubs, you have the choice of not picking up the car keys until it's time to leave. A short drive north however will arrive you in nearby Bude, being a well-equipped yet traditional Cornish to...
Getting around
North Cornwall's coastline is most conveniently explored by car, however Bude (sitting just to the north of Widemouth Bay) is readily accessed by coach from either Exeter St Davids or Plymouth train stations for those using public transport. From Bude, regular bus links run south to Widemouth Bay, Crackington Haven, Boscastle, Tintagel, Camelford, Port Isaac, Polzeath, Rock, Wadebridge and onto Truro, whilst buses run north to Holsworthy, Bideford and Barnstaple. Several taxi companies operate in the local area and for those preferring to be self-propelled, cycle hire is available in nearby Bude!
