What To Do On Your Self Catering Cottage Holiday

Local Town Of Bude Just !0 Mins From Our Self Catering Holiday Cottage image

There are hundreds of things to do whilst on holiday in North Cornwall.  Here we show you a selection of things you can do and see in the area.

Ponytails Holiday Cottage is just minutes from the wonderful beaches of Widemouth Bay, renowned for it's glorious surfing conditions, golden sands and spectacular cliff top walks.  There are two main beaches here at Widemouth Bay.  A bit further on and you enter the seaside town of Bude which has another two beaches to go along with it's wonderful gift shops, restaurants, pubs, 18 hole golf course, and cafes where you can enjoy a Cornish cream tea or Cornish pasty.  The town has one of only a couple of outdoor sea swimming pools in the whole of the country.  A great entertainment venue for all the family is Harlequins where you can enjoy ten pin bowling, and for the younger kids, there is a huge indoor soft play area with slides and ball pools.  Harlequins is also right next to 'The Splash' , the towns indoor swimming pool with spa area.  Down by the canal you can enjoy the recreation ground with a game of tennis, bowls or crazy golf, or just take a stroll or cycle along the canal paths.

A bit further a field and you can visit the attractive villages of Boscastle, Crackington Haven, Tintagel and Clovelly Boscastle and Crackington Haven which were subjected to unwanted national news when the storms of 2004 demolished the area. With help though, these villages have been restored and are back to their previous unspoilt best.   Tintagel is surrounded with history with its legends of King Arthur and the knights of the round table.

Other great tourist attractions throughout Cornwall include Camel Creek Adventure Park, The Flambards Experience, Goonhilly Earth Station Experience, Tate Modern Gallery at St.Ives, Morwellham Quay, and The Lost Gardens Of Heligan to name just a few.

For cycling lovers you can go to Wadebridge where there is a 16 mile cycle path, 'The Camel Trail', specifically built for cyclists, one way takes you right in to Padstow or go in the opposite direction and ride to Bodmin.

If you like, just stay at the holiday cottage and relax in the large quiet garden with it's superb rolling countryside views.  You can feed our Shetland pony Sugar or Annie our friendly horse and in spring time see and feed the lambs.  You can also take a walk around the area and down in to the ancient woodlands.
