Over the weekend we met up with some friends at Widemouth Bay. It’s a stunning coastline and beach just a few miles outside of the fab seaside town of Bude in Cornwall. Just a 25min drive from @coastalcabins it’s a lovely way to while away a day.
Follow the A39 ‘Atlantic Highway’ south across the Cornish border and you’ll see Widemouth signposted on your right. Just before that turning is the perfect place to stop of a morning coffee and cake. @theweirbistro is a modern cafe with lots of great facilities for little ones. There’s a huge lake, ponies to stroke and a handy outside play area to let them burn off some energy whilst you sit in the sun with a proper Cappucino (the lemon drizzle cake was yummy too!)
Jump in the car and just over a mile further and you’ll reach the breathtaking coast of Widemouth Bay. It’s a huge sandy beach with some seriously good surf from the Atlantic Ocean. Perfect for all ages there are also miles of rock pools to explore.
There are a number of good restaurants dotted along this stretch. We opted for @elements.bude with its amazing views and tantalising Italian menu. Excellent stone baked pizzas, tasty pasta dishes and a good selection on the kids menu too.
Make sure you #bookahead as places can get busy in the peak, and restaurants have less tables available due to Covid restrictions.
We are now fully booked @coastalcabins until 31st August, but why not book a break for September (much quieter and often the weather is fab!), or #planahead for next year.
