We are having such a wet January I am trying to cheer myself up by planning for Summer 2018, the pool and hopefully some better weather!

We will be opening our heated outdoor pool in a couple of months ready for the Easter holidays. The family cottages are booking up quickly for the summer holidays! Check availability at the end of this post.
Our pool looking inviting over Easter – wish the weather was always this predictable!
The pool is always popular with children and if it is sunny there is plenty of space to sit in the sun and relax. If not, well the hot tub is just next to the pool. There are lots of beaches to explore within a 10-20 minute drive. Widemouth and Black Rock beaches are a long stretch of sand about 10 minutes away.

These beaches are very popular with surfers. In Bude, Summerleaze with the sea pool is great for families.

Crooklets is a bit quieter and good for rock pooling. Further afield, Northcott Mouth and Sandymouth are both beautiful beaches to the north of Bude (about 15 – 20 minutes’ drive), with a mix of sand and rock pools as the tide goes out. If you would like something off the beaten track try Bossiney Haven at low tide. This is near Tintagel, about a 20 minute drive and a 15 minute walk down a steep rocky path.
Sometimes the sea is like this…
Or walk north from Crooklets in Bude at low tide towards Northcott Mouth, a long stretch of sandy beach. Just keep an eye on the tide!
