For the experienced surfer we have at least 7 good surf beaches within 5
miles. It’s a well kept secret but some of the best surf on the Atlantic
coastline happens from September to March (left).
The surfing break at Northcott Mouth is only ½ mile stroll across fields
from Northcott Farmhouse which has plenty of safe storage space for
your boards and wetsuits.
For novices who would like to give this exhilarating and fun sport a try

All of the Court Farm Holiday properties offer easy access onto North
Cornwall ’s dramatic section of the South West Coast Path. Additionally,
you can enjoy the un-spoilt countryside of the North Tamar walking along
the Bude Canal which was originally opened in the 1820's. This is a
pleasant walk combining grassy coastal cliff paths and inland fields with the
quiet and peaceful canal.
For those of you with an interest in ancient battles - you should explore the
Stratton Battlefield. A walk of approximately two hours it explores the site of
an Iron Age Fort, where the Civil War battle of Stamford Hill took place in
1643, between the Royalist Army and Parliamentarian Troops. Additionally,
the Battle of Stratton re-enacted by members of the Sealed Knot Society
each year. To plan you hikes in advance of your holiday visit
Cornwall’s reputation as a gastronomic destination has rocketed in recent
years. Rick Stein’s eateries in Padstow and Jamie Oliver’s latest Fifteen
restaurant have all certainly helped put Cornwall on the food lovers trail.
But it’s the quality of our locally sourced food that is the secret county wide
– fish and shell fish fresh from the ocean and a mild climate that favours
livestock and the growing of succulent fruit and vegetables.
Bude is no exception – if enjoying fantastic food, good company and a
glorious sun set are top of your priorities you must make a reservation at
‘Life’s a Beach’ at Summerlease Beach, Bude, The Bay View Inn at
Widemouth Bay or The Widemouth Manor. The Castle Restaurant in Bude
also comes highly recommended. These are just a few of the many
fine restaraunts to be found in this area of North Cornwall. Whilst
other delights for you to sample during your stay are 'Elements' in
Widemouth Bay or if oriental is more your style try Tiandi and Mirchi in
Bude to name a few.
