North Cornwall is home to many beautiful beaches and fishing villages, popular with surfers but also perfect for cyclists and walkers. This part of England has been popular with families for years and has expanded to include adventure parks, farms and outdoor pursuit centres.
Being based near Bude is ideal for exploring further afield, with Boscastle, Tintagel, Padstow, Bideford, Hartland Quay, Clovelly, Newquay and Barnstaple all worth a visit.
Penstowe Park isn't a concrete jungle. The chalets are located in woodland with plenty of trees for shade and fields stretch beyond the park perimeter down towards the sea.
Kilkhampton village is a five minute walk from the chalet and offers two pubs, a post office, two local stores, a butcher's, Chinese, pizza and fish and chips takeaways.
A little further down the road, you'll find Bude for a fix of shops, amusements, cafes and a choice of beaches.
Bude was recently voted as the UK's 7th Best Beach Destination in TripAdvisor's second annual Travellers’ Choice® Beach Destinations awards.
Bude boasts an outdoor swimming pool filled by seawater and plenty of opportunities to surf, kayak or just jump the waves. A particular favourite of ours is beautiful Sandymouth Beach just three miles from the chalet where you can walk along the cliffs to Bude and a little further is Duckpool Beach (where we've enjoyed sausage sizzlers and steaming cups of tea!)
