North Coast

Penmor is an ideal base for a peaceful holiday within a short walk of one of the finest beaches in the county. The accommodation is ideal for a couple or a family with 3 separate bedrooms and ample space for dining and cooking. However you can easily while away the hours just watching the ever-changing view, down to the beach, and Black Rock, and across toward Hartland Point, as the beach is west-facing it is exposed to some great Atlantic surf, and there is RNLI lifeguard cover from the beginning of May through until late in September with some extra cover outside at weekends. The sunsets here can be truly ...

breathtaking, keep your eye out for a green flash as the sun dips over the horizon! What's more you can bring your family pet as Penmor is dog friendly. Dogs are allowed at Black Rock beach (just below Penmor) all year but there are restrictions at the far end of Widemouth Beach through the main part of the season. The SW Coast path is always dramatic, and here is no exception, but please be careful as some of the cliffs are 100m high.

There are ample opportunities for fun days out near here, Bude is well worth a visit, it became popular as a Victorian holiday resort with a small commercial harbour, a canal was built, predominantly to ship sand inland, in the early 19th century, and this allows protected boating right in the heart of the town, there are two tidal sea pools, Bude Sea Pool on Summerleazes Beach is large and semi-natural and provides a safe place for wild swimming, while the more discreet, Tommys Pit, was originally a men only pool with a 2d charge for use and a 1d fine if caught swimming in the nude, both pools are now free! Boscastle is a wonderful day out further west, stroll around the pretty village and its traditional harbour, and maybe include a walk to the magical St Nectans Glen. Much as we love Cornwall Penmor is relatively close to the Devon border and it would be a shame to miss out on a trip to "Britain's most Instagrammable village of 2020" - Clovelly.

Map & Local Area

The beach at Widemouth Bay is a wide expanse of open sand stretching nearly 2 miles. Despite being only 3 miles from the popular resort town of Bude the beach here has a wild feel. This is an exposed stretch of coast, facing west, straight into the full force of the Atlantic Ocean. Great news for surfers but it can get a little breezy. In this case you may be able to find some shelter among the sand dunes on the foreshore. A recent winner of the much coveted Blue Flag Award, you can be sure Widemouth Bay has all ...

the facilities you'll need for a family day at the beach. In addition to cafes and toilets there are lifeguards during the summer months. But if you fancy a swim, observe the flags, they're there for a reason. To the southern end of the beach the foreshore becomes increasingly rocky. This is great news for rock pooling and at lower tides there is no shortage of marine life to be discovered here. Amongst all these fingers of rock is the distinct form of Black Rock. A lone lump of rock rising high above any of the surrounding beach. Widemouth Bay is the landing point for many important communications cables which link the UK to other countries. It is said that one of these is the 'Trans-Atlantic hotline' connecting Downing Street with the White House!

Bude lies just to the north of Widemouth Bay and is a fun, vibrant town, apart from the local beaches it is well worth exploring Bude Canal which was constructed in 1823 and operated commercially until the 1890s it ran from the sea a full 30 miles inland and was designed to carry the fine sand inland to help with infertile farming soil. Located right on Bude's main Summerleaze beach is the 1930s sea pool. Given that all of the area's beaches face into the full might of the Atlantic Ocean and the currents can be strong this provides the perfect, safe environment for getting in the sea. Part natural and part man-made the Bude Sea Pool is impressively large, measuring nearly 300 feet (90 metres) in length. That's longer than an Olympic swimming pool, so this tidal lido is big enough for even the most serious of swimmers. There are plenty of shallow parts of the pool and there is a seasonal lifeguard to keep even the youngest of bathers safe.

Boscastle lies to the south, infamous for the terrible flood that rushed through the village in 2004, however now it has been lovingly restored and is well worth a visit, the quaint harbour is well sheltered from the wild Atlantic beyond and this is a great spot for a coastal walk down the valley to the Devils Bellows, a natural blowhole that bursts into action around an hour either side of low tide.. The Valency Valley above Boscastle, winds through ancient meadows and woods carpeted with bluebells, and there are several great walks. St Nectans Glen is a wonderful day out, a beautiful walk up the valley to see where the river Trevillet has carved its way through Late Devonian slate, creating a magnificent 60 foot waterfall which has punched a hole through the original kieve (basin). The water now cascades through the beautiful valley. Please note there is and admission fee when you get there!
