Day 5: Last day Cornwall

The beautiful weather continued on our last day in Cornwall. We didn’t want to go too far out today because we had a long drive ahead of us for the 4-hour drive back home, so we went back to Bude.

I noticed a restaurant called Life’s a Beach which was right on the beachfront. We went there for lunch and it was really nice. The food was sort of pub/cafe style food, burgers, baguettes, salads, chips and also a number of specials every day. 12178154_10208294053772003_572470614_nThe food was good and the portions were very large, but the main thing going for this restaurant is definitely the lovely view over Summerleaze beach, especially on a sunny day. The restaurant also does an evening menu which features lots of fresh fish, which I would definitely try if I was in Bude again.

The rest of the day we spent buying fudge from Granny Wobbly’s Fudge Kitchen which I can’t recommend enough! Their fudge is to die for and I brought plenty home!

Bude definitely has lots going for it and is a very popular place for families. On Summerleaze beach, there’s a surf academy which would be a great activity for younger people, not so much my 75-year-old Nan!

Then it was time to go home. I said a very sad goodbye to Cornwall. I really enjoyed my holiday and think Cornwall’s a great place to go with things to do for all ages. The beaches in North Cornwall have really clear sea which is lovely and places like Widemouth Bay are a surfers paradise. The beaches are also really safe and there’s always lifeguards on patrol to ensure everyone’s safe. Although one downside is there’s a lot of driving involved to get to some of the attractions like the Eden Project, however if you have the weather you could easily spend a day or two relaxing at the beach.

I definitely would recommend a trip to Cornwall and hope these posts gave you a bit of inspiration on some places you can go and things to do!
