June 2022

Although our last visit to Cornwall was 3 years ago due to Covid we have been coming to this area for over 15 years. The property is in the perfect location for a quiet beach holiday. We walked down to the beach most evenings and had family time playing games in the snug. The boys loved the football table too! The Weir is a lovely walk with fantastic food, a lovely view and stuff for the kids. We’re all looking forward to our next visit ??

Holidays in Widemouth Bay

Widemouth Bay is a beautiful beach, just three miles from the town of Bude. With one and a half miles of golden sand, it’s the perfect place for a relaxing holiday within easy reach of the facilities at Bude.  

Situated on the North coast, Widemouth Bay is an open, exposed stretch of coast, ideal for surfers. Equally enjoyed by families, children can explore the rock pools exposed at low tide. With beach cafes, parking and seasonal lifeguards, it’s the perfect day out.

Though Widemouth Bay appears to be one large beach, it’s divided into two beaches. Blackrock, the south end, is privately owned and is dog-friendly all year, perfect if your pooch is joining you on holiday.

Widemouth Bay is the landing point for communications cables linking the UK to other countries?

Widemouth Bay Beach

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 in Widemouth Bay

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

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.

We have just returned from a week's stay at Surfside .Although we have been to North Cornwall many times this was our first trip to Widemouth Bay and the Bude area. Widemouth Bay is beautiful excellent for dog walking surfing or watching the world go by at the cafe drinking a coffee and chilling. Surfside is a credit to the owners .Well equipped clean comfortable with a pretty garden and amazing sunsets to be seen from the property .I fell in love with the little snug upstairs didn't want the holiday to end but I am sure we will be back.

Lovely comfortable and spacious. Perfect location near the beach with amazing views. We enjoyed a lovely week at surfside and look forward to hopefully booking again

We have just returned from a week at Surfside. The house is in a fantastic position with sea views from the lounge window. Just 2 minutes walk to the beach. Perfect for taking our dogs for a walk on the beach. The house is fully equipped with everything we needed. Booked for next Easter while we were there!

Comfortable and light property in a great location. Plenty of seating in the living room with a good view of the sea. The top snug has the best views in the house and is a great place to have your morning cuppa.

Would recommend this property to anyone wishing to visit this beautiful part of Cornwall.

Surfside is a great holiday location. Close enough to Bude, but with the beach a stones throw away we spent a lot of time there. The garden is perfect for the dog. The beds are very comfortable and the views out of the window are great. We have already booked next year.

Great location, comfy beds huge TV and a fantastic hang out space for younger guests. If booking for those with mobility issues the inner doorway into the extension was tricky as it was an external door originally and wider and higher step than expected. Furniture comfy but quite low for people with mobility issues. Anyone booking will have a lovely holiday, just sit watching the waves and the surfers riding the waves.

Surfside is a lovely property a stones throw from the beach with lovely views. The property was immaculate throughout and a safe and secure garden for our dog. The bedrooms are amazing with the most comfortable mattress's. A lovely welcome pack including wine we received on arrival. We loved Surfside so much we are booking for next year. We had a fantastic holiday and wish to Thank Aspect holidays and the owners of Surfside.

Excellent property, very spacious and well equipped, good location to beach.
