Where to…

...eat

The Weir
“Great place to have a traditional English breakfast or light lunch and perhaps a glass of Cornish cider with it!”

Elements
“A very stylish Italian restaurant with gorgeous views and fantastic service. The ultimate thing about this lovely place is, these guys deliver to Penleaze!”

The Beach

“What an amazing Hotel it is (part of the Mr and Mrs Smith group!) just above summerleaze beach. The perfect place to have a cocktail (mentioned again below in “where to drink”) or enjoy some excellent food in the their beautiful restaurant”

Life’s A Beach
“If you want to treat yourself to something special, this unique dining experience is the one for you. The Cornish scallops with belly pork are to die for and so is the panoramic sea view.”

The Beach House

“Another restaurant we absolutely love, for its delicious Asian-orientated food, its incredible sea views and its gorgeous owner Beth. If you fancy an authentic, down to earth, cozy place to spend a good evening and a breath taking sunset, this is the place to go”

...drink

The Beach Hotel
“Definitely our favourite place for an afternoon/evening drink, with their yummy cocktails, amazing sea views and a great atmosphere. Just perfect!”

Bar35
“Located right in the centre of Bude, this busy bar often has live music and a party scene on Friday and Saturday Nights.”

...walk

Bude Canal
“Starting at Penleaze, why not walk through Marhamchurch and down to the famous Bude Canal right into the centre of Bude. It takes about half an hour and is a great way to see the local area at its best.”

Northcott Mouth to Sandymouth
“Depending on the tide, either walk along the beach or the scenic coastal path to Sandymouth, rewarding yourself with a well-deserved cream tea when you get there.”

Milook to Crackington Haven
“Yes, you’ll need a bit of energy for this but my goodness it’s worth it for the spectacular views. After a 2.5 hour walk, kick back and relax in the Cabin café at Crackington Haven for a treat and some celebrity spotting. Advisable perhaps for a non-walker in your group to pick you up from there. So you don’t have to walk back again.”

Additional walks
“Because of our rather limited experience of walking, here are plenty of recommended routes from the professionals.”

...relax

The Break Water
“If I need time out, away from it all, the little bench at the break water is my ultimate escape. Definitely with my mobile switched off, bliss.”

“You may think I’m old and boring but this really is worth the 40 minute drive. Apart from beautiful horticulture and every rose under the sun, this paradise is the perfect day out for total relaxation.”

The Salon
“If this isn’t enough to wet your appetite, step out of your back door and treat yourself to a massage with lava shells, Dermalogica facial or a tanning session. It really is the best way to start your holiday in Cornwall, but then of course I would say that…”

...go when it rains

Splash
“Leisure swim sessions with waves and a water slide for children and adults alike.”

“Big play area and 10 lane bowling alley with food also available.”

..."pub"

The Bay View Inn
“Perfect for big groups and families, this chilled out pub/restaurant boasts fabulous views over Widemouth Bay, a damn good menu and even a play area to keep the kids entertained.”

Brendon Arms
“A local pub in Bude, often showing Sky Sports events with a lovely beer garden overlooking Bude Canal. They provide a separate dining area with fantastic pub food at very reasonable prices. Try the pulled pork burger!”

Crooklets Inn
“OMG, you have to try their Sunday roast. In my opinion, the best ever! Don’t forget to book in advance, these guys are busy!”

Bullers Arms
“Our local pub beautifully reopened in 2014! Nikki, the owner, made this pub brighter and lovelier. The biggest bonus, it’s just 1 mile down the road so you can (hopefully) walk home.”
