Near to the beautiful seaside town of Bude, Widemouth is home to our park Widemouth Fields. With amazing beaches, stunning coastal walks, Cornish heritage, fantastic restaurants and fun activities in the local area, we’ve put together the top 10 things to do during your stay with us in Widemouth.
1. Widemouth Bay
No trip to Widemouth would be complete without visiting the famous sands of Widemouth Bay. Stretching for one and a half miles, this bay is the ideal spot to enjoy Cornwall. Perfect for families, surfers and thrill-seekers alike, sunbathe, go swimming, surf, view rare rock formations, explore rock pools, walk, or watch the sun set over the North coast. Enjoy a cuppa at the gorgeous cafe in the car park.
2. Beach House Bar & Restaurant
Under brand new ownership, the Beach House has recently undergone renovation for a brilliant panoramic restaurant and cafe overlooking Widemouth Bay. Sit on the terrace nestled amongst the sand dunes for an incredible view of the beach and enjoy a delicious meal combining the best of local Cornish produce and flavours from around the globe. Watch this space for some exciting developments to this venue in the future.
3. Trelawny Tea Room and Bike Hire
For a perfect day out, visit Trelawny Tea Room overlooking Widemouth Bay for a delicious home cooked breakfast or lunch (or even brunch), and hire a bike to make the journey from Widemouth to Bude. Follow the cycle route, from Widemouth to Marhamchurch to Bude, or simply cycle down the coastal road to the centre of town. Return after a day of exploring the quaint town of Bude (see our top things to do in Bude for inspiration) and recuperate after your active day with a traditional Cornish cream tea.
4. The Weir Bistro
Along the aforementioned cycle route, find The Weir Restaurant on your way from Bude back to Widemouth, a perfect place to stop and catch your breath to enjoy some coffee and cake or a hearty lunch. Supporting the local community with local produce, this bistro also doubles as an interactive wildlife centre; the perfect place to keep your children entertained while you relax in the cafe.
5. Raven Surf School
Running for 10 years, Raven Surf School will teach you how to surf the waves at Widemouth Bay, whether you are a beginner or advanced surfer.
6. Outdoor Adventure
For the adventurous, visit Outdoor Adventure school at Widemouth for coasteering, surfing, kayaking, bodyboarding, abseiling, canoeing, archery, windsurfing, orienteering and coastal walking. They really have it all, and it’s suitable for all ages and abilities.
7. Tintagel Castle
Immerse yourself in Cornish history and discover Tintagel Castle and the legend of King Arthur. Situated on North Cornwall’s dramatic coastline, this stunning location has been an inspiration to famous artists and writers of the past. So make a day visit to the castle to find out just why this site of castle ruins, steep cliffs, aqua waters and panoramic views has inspired so many.
8. Bangors Organic
Bangors Organic is an award winning B&B, restaurant and organic farm shop. Proudly eco-friendly, Bangors Organic uses a wind turbine to generate its electricity and has an electric car hook up in its car park. Dine on the very best of Gill’s home cooking at the restaurant, or stock up on fresh Cornish produce from the farm shop during your holiday rather than visiting the usual supermarket.
Like Tintagel, the quaint fishing village of Boscastle is steeped in history dating back to the Medieval period, similarly inspiring writers and artists due to its romantic and rugged beauty. Visit the spooky Museum of Witchcraft, see the panoramic views from the Coastwatch Lookout or follow the coastal path from Boscastle to Tintagel for a truly spectacular route capturing all the beauty of the Northern coast.
10. Rebel Cinema
Rebel Cinema is a purpose built single screen independent cinema dating back to 1987 showing the latest releases. The cinema has recently expanded in the last year with a second screen, refurbishment, digital 3D equipment and the latest surround sound systems.
