Of course, the best part of Widemouth Bay is Widemouth Bay Beach - 1.5 miles of glorious sand.

Though it appears to be one large expanse of sand, the beach is actually divided into two sections: the North Beach and the South Beach (also known as Black Rock). This division comes in the form of a barrier of natural rocks - the largest being the landmark known as Black Rock. At low tide, hundreds of rock pools are exposed - perfect to keep the children (and adults) entertained. 

Ample parking is available at Widemouth Bay, but if you don't fancy getting your toes sandy, you can park at one of the free viewing areas! 

There is a seasonal dog ban on this beach from the 15th May to the 30th September between 10am and 6pm. Outside these hours and from 1st October to 14th May dogs are allowed.

Things to do

If you fancy a change from rock-pooling and making sand castles on the beach, you might like to try surfing. Don't worry if you're a beginner you can take surfing lessons with Freewave Surf Academy or Outdoor Adventure

There are lots of lovely walks in and around Widemouth Bay. You could try walking to Bude, via Philips Point Nature Reserve, over Efford Down, to the watch tower at Compass Point and then follow the canal into Bude. 

If you're looking to explore further afield, check out our blog about things to do in Bude.

Places to eat

There are several eateries in and around Widemouth Bay.

Firstly, The Bay View Inn provides a selection of seasonal classics and food with a twist. They have three separate indoor dining areas, several alfresco dining areas and spaces available for private hire. In peak season, they open a snack shack, serving a variety of take away foods. 

Close to the beach, you'll find Black Rock Cafe and Bistro, serving freshly-cooked artisan food. You can enjoy your food inside, or on the deck soaking up the views. 

With direct access to the beach, Widemouth Bay Cafe serves all day breakfast, fish and chips, burgers, cream teas and other light snacks. 

Slightly outside of Widemouth Bay, Elements Cafe Bar and Restaurant serves a selection of food, specialising in pizza and pasta. The restaurant has beautiful views to enjoy while you dine.

A well presented and welcoming stay, owners were very helpful too! Location was great as it was just outside of bude and local beach was beautiful! After a long drive the milk and wine was a nice touch when arriving

We had a great holiday in Fields Barn, location is perfect for Black Rock beach and only 15 min drive to supermarkets in Bude. The cottage was clean and spacious and we were made to feel very welcome from the minute we arrived. I think we’ll be back in the future

Field barn is a great place to stay, well equipped & in a lovely rural spot but not too far from the beach, nearest pub or bus stop. The owners were so helpful and friendly which all helped to ensure a great holiday.

Have just returned from a super week in Widemouth Bay. I can highly recommend this cottage. The position is ideal for visiting various attractions both locally and further afield. The local beach is a short drive away and easy to access. Tip for parking ---- if you drive further along the main road you can park your car for free.

We had a very relaxing break at Fields Barn, which is a large, well appointed and comfortable barn conversation. The owners live close by and were extremely helpful throughout. Iain was so kind when I became ill during the second week. A lovely property and great value for money overall.

This property is spacious and easily enough room for four people. There is a second lounge on the mezzanine level if anybody wants some peace and quiet! It has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. The beach is a 30 minute walk away and the nearest pub/restaurant 15 minutes. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property.

Fields barn was absolutely beautiful. We can't fault the location or property. An extremely clean home away from home with some lovely little touches like the wine on arrival and hand sanitisers. The secure paddock was a welcome bonus to for our dog to run free. Also the biscuits for our dog was a lovely touch. We loved our stay and hope to return in the not too distant future. Thank you

Wonderful location, good for touring. Lovely property with all our expectations exceeded. Great for privacy and parking. Welcome pack was nice gesture especially after lengthy journey. Would definitely recommend. Thank you for making our break away so perfect.

We come to widemouth bay every year but it was first time staying here. It was very peaceful but close enough to the beach and restaurant. We would definitely recommend this to friends and family

This is a terrific place to stay in a great location, you can walk to the beach and there’s a nice place to drink and eat 5 minutes away. The cottage is spacious and comfortable, our only issue was with the WiFi which was very unreliable, guaranteeing moaning from game obsessed son for the time we were in.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are very sorry the wifi had not been very reliable during your stay. The location of this property is amazing and a fantastic feature, but the downside of such a location can be the strength of the wifi. The owner is looking into possible solutions to prevent this from being an on-going problem for guests. We are glad that you otherwise enjoyed the property and sorry again for this issue. Tanya, Customer Services

Fields Barn is an amazing place to stay. Out of the way of the crowds but a short 2 min drive to the nearest beach and 10 mins to Bude. Immaculately Clean, comfortable, everything you need and wonderful hosts. Would highly recommend Aspect holidays and Fields Barn in particular.

Cannot fault the property and the owners were really friendly and helpful. Loved the welcome gift of hand sanitiser! The property was absolutely immaculate - so clean. Excellent parking and facilities. Beautiful accommodation, fresh, spacious and well equipped. Great location, quiet and just a short drive to the beach. Would recommend without hesitation.
