Where can you stay that offers calm and tranquillity, but with the convenience of having everything you need right at your fingertips? Seascape has the answer!
Widemouth Bay is a quiet village just three miles outside of the bustling seaside resort of Bude. Its popularity with the surfing community means it boasts a surf-hire shop, three tearooms, two pubs/restaurants and a shop that not only has a mouth-watering array of freshly caught fish, but also all the basic necessities for the guest who has forgotten their toothbrush. Bude itself is an easy hour-long walk inland over fields and along the canal or, if you prefer something a little more strenuous, just under 3 miles along the South West Coast Path, which can be seen from the windows of Seascape.
Bude is home to a wealth of eateries, from ice-cream parlours to tea shops, a la carte restaurants to fish and chip shops; there is something for everyone. You can hire a bike to explore the local villages, a canoe to paddle along the peaceful canal, or a surf board to experience the thrill of the waves. For the more sedentary, many an afternoon can be spent browsing in the varied shops, or sitting beside the famous Sea Pool.
If you prefer to explore a little further afield, Boscastle and Tintagel are a short drive south in Cornwall, while Bideford, Clovelly and Hartland Point are a similar distance to the north in Devon. With such easy access to the A39 Atlantic Highway, travelling the area by car or bus is easy to do, and the Eden Project, Port Isaac, Padstow and even Plymouth are all within an hour’s drive from Seascape.
There is plenty to entertain the family, no matter the weather, with leisure parks, wildlife sanctuaries, historic buildings and so much more to see, if the sand-castle building, rock-pooling and paddling starts to become repetitive! In fact, there is so much to see and do that you’ll probably find one week won’t be enough…..
