Family Holiday Cottages North Cornwall

What to do in and around the Bude area

There’s plenty to do nearby when staying in our North Cornwall holiday cottages…


We are extremely lucky as our Bude holiday cottages are situated just 2 miles from the coast of Cornwall, and the famous South West Coast path that starts at Minehead, in Somerset, and ends at Studland, in Dorset.

You can walk from our land, down through Combe Valley (AONB) to Duckpool Cove and we are always more than happy to pick up / drop off walkers, should you wish to leave your car at your holiday cottage.

You can also walk around our land, which is just one of the reasons we think our holiday cottage accommodation is amongst the best in Cornwall.


We are spoilt for choice for beaches and coves in this area of North Cornwall. Here are just a few of our favourites:-

Duck Pool

Our nearest beach at just 2 miles away from the cottages at Woodlands Manor Farm.

It is a very natural and wild cove and, although swimming is not recommended, the surf is good for experienced surfers.

Duck Pool is favoured by many as a quiet retreat away from it all and offers spectacular scenery whatever the weather.


Owned by the National Trust, this is about 3 miles from us. A huge sandy beach… as the name implies! Car parking and café on site.


One of 2 beaches in Bude. A very wide beach with plenty of sand and a seawater swimming pool. Beach huts, cafés and a good size car park.

Widemouth Bay

Pronounced ‘Widmuth’, the Bay is 3 miles south of Bude and offers 2 stunning beaches stretching approx 1.5 miles. Excellent facilities, with a number of surf schools.

Villages and Towns

Kilkhampton: this is the nearest village to our holiday cottages and has a small range of shops including 2 grocers, post office, a toy shop, a fish and chip shop and a pizza takeaway.

Kilk, as it is known to the locals, also has 2 pubs: The London Inn and The New Inn. Both offer local ales and home-cooked food.


Bude is located just 6 miles south of us, right on the coast.

Bude is a mix of contemporary and old fashioned charm. There are plenty of unique and locally-owned shops and a wide selection of individual restaurants, cafés and pubs to suit everyone’s budget and taste.

Bude is a great place to spend time, and our holiday cottages are in a perfect location in North Cornwall for you to do so.

Ensure you make time to stroll along the canal, as it has one of only two working lock gates opening straight into the sea in the whole of Britain.

Also, Bude boasts not only one but two beaches! Crooklets is perfect for surfers and Summerleaze is perfect for families.

The golf club is located overlooking Bude, with glorious views out to sea. The links course will give even the experienced golfer a challenging round!


Located just 10 miles north of our holiday cottages, it is a typical North Cornwall picture postcard fishing village, with cobbled streets, a tiny working harbour and donkey rides up and down the steep lanes. Clovelly is well worth a visit.
