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. The 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!
