The inn on the beach; The Coombe Barton Inn is in a great location overlooking Crackington Haven beach.

Boscastle.jpg

One of the few sheltered harbours on the north coast, Boscastle became famous in 2004 due to the devastating floods that swept through the village. The community has recovered remarkably well, and Boscastle is once more a thriving resort and a lovely village to visit.

This is a challenging three and a half mile walk with varied terrain including steep hills, stiles and steps. The views alone from the cliff tops will make the effort worthwhile and the return journey takes in lovely woodland.

Near to Bude, Crackington Haven is a little village nestled in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Once famous for importing coal from Wales, the village’s beach is now a firm family-favourite for long days spent flicking between sea and sand. Surrounded by high cliffs and beautiful countryside, Crackington Haven offers a scenic escape.

Millook haven beach.jpg

Think Millook Haven Beach and the first thing that comes to mind is geology. Taking pride of place in the cliffs behind the beach are the world famous zigzag folds. Sit on the pebbly foreshore and take in nature's marvellous designs. From the rolling surf to the fascinating cliffs, Millook Haven Beach offers a feast for the eyes. The beach is dog-friendly year-round. There are no lifeguards.

Widemouth beach.jpg

Just along the coast from the busy resort of Bude, Widemouth is a long, long stretch of sand backed by high cliffs. Unusual rock formations on the beach are a magnet for climbers while the Atlantic surf brings bodyboarders, kayakers and surfers here in their hundreds. Widemouth Bay is home to a scattering of houses, pubs, cafes and restaurants but there remains a definitive sense of having strayed off the beaten path here. There is a section open to dogs all year round, loads of parking and several surf schools.

The remains of Tintagel Castle are at the heart of Arthurian legend. The location of the castle is spectacular – half a mile outside of Tintagel, across rugged clifftops, with no vehicular access. Tintagel Island, attached to the mainland by a sliver of land, enhances the wild and romantic atmosphere.
