NATIONAL TRUST BEACHES IN BUDE, CORNWALL
SANDYMOUTH BEACH CORNWALL
Its vast natural beauty and its charming cafe makes Sandymouth our favourite Bude beach
Located just over a mile north of Bude towns centre, it is the largest and quietest beach of the Bude beaches. With a mile of golden sands and a backdrop of geological masterpieces and fishermans paths it is a must on any visit to the area. The long beach is nestled between a maze of rocky outcrops (Warren's Gutter), a ship wreck and a dragons head and is full of thrilling adventure. For Surfers it is a hot spot as it is positioned with more exposure to the summer swells and with so much room to choose from allows each surfer the space and time to catch that thrilling ride. Even if surfing is not your thing Sandymouth has plenty of rockpools teaming with life, caves to adventure through and a charming cafe in which to relax and enjoy a coffee and a bite to eat.
NORTHCOTT BEACH CORNWALL
With its many faces and places to explore
Northcott mouth is just south of Sandymouth and boasts an ever changing shoreline. With boulders, caves, cliffs, nooks and crannies Northcott is never the same from year to year. The beach has a pebble ridge that desends to a sometimes rocky sometimes sandy shoreline. Once you are passed the seasonal rocks the beach opens up to an expanse of sand (depending on the size of the tides). On spring lows you can walk to Sandymouth or to Bude as it is the central point of a large low tide walk of about 3 miles. If you are in the area then you must pop along and have a cream tea at Margarets. The location is not difficult to find, yet is a welcome treat to anyone who enjoys characters, cream teas and cosy surroundings. Surfing at Northcott can be a little fruitless unless you are wiling to put in the hours or arrive at the right time.
DUCKPOOL BEACH CORNWALL
Has a real rugged and magical feel
Duckpool is set in the 'out of the way' valley of Coombe. Its is an excellent setting for an adventure, a romance or just a walk and a picnic. Enclosed by towering hillsides and a stream that splays down the pebble entrance Duckpool is often underrated and overlooked as a place to stop on a visit to the area. With a narrow beach flanked by a maze of rocks on the south side (Warren's Gutter) it is one of the smaller beaches of the area. It has a toilet block and a Scotts-man scoops ice creams to the lucky few that have worked up the need for refreshment in exploring the beach of Duckpool. Surfing at Duckpool is not for beginners as there is no lifeguard cover.
