In a quiet close in Bude, 400 yards from the wide expanse of golden sand (rock pools) of Crooklets beach and the Coast Path, this modern, semi-detached house on three floors with long views to Maers Down. Golf course, shops, cafés and restaurants are a few hundred yards away, with Bude's second huge beach (Summerleaze), 800 yards. Brilliantly convenient houses for the beach and exploring Cornwall and manageable without a car. Coach/bus stop, 700 yards.
Cornwall’s north coast: from the river Camel north to Bude and on to Morwenstow and the highest cliffs in the West Country, it is a mixture of great cliffs and beaches. Walking (coast path) and bird-friendly cliffs (usually no road near): peregrines possible. Great sand/surf beaches at Polzeath, Trebarwith, Widemouth Bay, Bude and Sandy Mouth; sandy coves at Port Gaverne, Bossiney, Crackington Haven, Duckpool, and others less accessible; Rock, also sandy, is the place for watersports, including sailing on the Camel estuary; very fine golf course (St Enodoc); mini-fjords at Port Quin and Boscastle. Port Isaac is very pretty round its cliff-enclosed harbour.
The well-worth-riding Camel Trail cycleway (bicycles for hire) follows the river Camel from Bodmin Moor to Padstow. Pencarrow is a beautiful house with wonderful garden. Tintagel has a ruined castle (King Arthur’s) on a wild headland. St Juliot church was restored by Thomas Hardy and ‘a pair of blue eyes’ nearly fell down a Crackington cliff. Bodmin Moor, its highest hills quite mountainous, is only a little way inland and Blisland, on its northern edge, is one of Cornwall’s prettiest villages.
Bude: small, friendly resort with two magnificent sand/surf beaches (Summerleaze, Crooklets), natural sea water bathing pool, lots of grassy running-about space behind them, and canal through middle for boating, coarse fishing and swans. Shops, pubs, restaurants, beach café, tennis courts, indoor swimming pool/sports centre, golf, riding - an easy walk from everywhere. Surfing tuition/hire. Superb cliff-walking coast.
