Bude 1 mile.
With two excellent beaches and being awarded the best UK coastal resort in the British Travel awards, Bude is the first choice with many families when it comes to good old fashioned holidays.
Less than half a mile walk to Northcott Mouth, an exclusive National Trust beach and cove, this ground floor apartment offers cosy, bright and airy accommodation for a family wanting to make the most of long lazy days on the beach.
On the ground floor, with parking directly behind, the apartment has an open plan kitchen, dining room and a sitting room with an electric coal-effect fire.
The sitting room is a cosy place to relax with the fire keeping you warm in the Winter months.
French doors leading out onto the patio with a large shared lawn for the children to play.
There are two bedrooms here, a double and a twin as well as a bathroom.
Whether its surfing or building sandcastles on clean golden sandy beaches, Bude's coastline has it all, a variety of watersports, fishing, golf, cycling, rock climbing and much more, including the stunning walks along the famous South West Coast Path.
For something different, why not hire a rowing boat or pedalo and enjoy an hour on the Bude canal?
For the days when the sun doesn't shine, head to Bude where you will discover a large heated indoor leisure pool, complete with flume and wave machine which will appeal to the children as will the laser dome, trampolines, and the go karting.
With so much to do and enjoy in Bude itself, the whole of your holiday could easily be spent here but a short drive will take you to more spectacular beaches as well as an opportunity to explore the spectacular north coast of Cornwall.
About the location
Tintagel 17 miles.
Bude is a fabulous coastal town that once visited you will want to come back to time and time again. Bude has something for everyone, great beaches for relaxing, and building sandcastles on, rockpools for investigating at low tide and cafes to watch it all from. The rolling waves are great for surfing all year round, and the footpaths by the restored canal or on the North Cornwall coastal path offer you a superb opportunity to explore and appreciate the outstanding countryside. Bude also has a superb golf course, indoor swimming pool, bowling alley/indoor play area and Heritage Centre at Bude Castle. It also has a good selection of local shops, supermarkets, cafes, pubs, restaurants and excellent Information Centre. Within a short drive are the remains of a huge iron age hill fort at Warbstow Bury, from where panoramic views can be seen. For days out, take the coast road north to see the lonely lighthouse above the sea at Hartland Point or walk or ride a donkey down the steep and cobbled village street (no cars allowed) of beautiful Clovelly to the harbour and the pub far below. Follow the coast in the other direction and there's the little cove of Crackington Haven, Boscastle, King Arthur's castle at Tintagel, Doc Martin's Port Wenn at Port Isaac and yet more great surfing beaches at Polzeath.
