Cornwall plays host to at least one of the top 20 best beaches featured by World Travel Guide. There has never been a better time for a Great British beach holiday. So grab your bucket and spade, kids, wellies, your four-legged best friend and head to the South West peninsula for a luxury beach holiday Cornwall.
Rated best for surfing, strolling and summer holidaying, Widemouth Bay, near Bude, Cornwall, a long time favourite of local residents, is a striking expanse of rugged North Cornwall coastline. As you approach the bay from either end of Marine Drive, Widemouth Bay and the connecting southerly beach of Black Rock, reach out in front as far as the eye can see.
Lying on the Atlantic coast the water might be a little chilly even on the hottest day, but there has never been a better time to enjoy our British beaches, particularly Widemouth Bay, that has the endorsement of the Marine Conservation Society (MSC).
Once a haven for smugglers, Widemouth Bay now has a far wider appeal. During the summer the sandy beach attracts swimmers, sunbathers and strollers throughout the day and local fishermen, dog walkers (on the south Black Rock beach only until October), joggers and families enjoying an early evening BBQ during late afternoons and balmy evenings. The winter months bring pounding Atlantic surf, luring surfers, hardy outdoors types and locals who never tire of watching the thundering waves crashing onto the beach during high winds and storms.
Widemouth Bay can be found on Marine Drive, Widemouth Bay, Bude EX23 0AW just 10.8 miles (19 mins drive) from our luxury 5 star GOLD awarded cottages by Quality in Tourism for Visit England.
