DEVON AND CORNWALL COAST AND COUNTRYSIDE
SO MANY BEACHES
Being perfectly placed on the North Devon-Cornwall border means that during your stay at Mill Farm you will be ideally situated for exploring all that both counties have to offer...Including their stunning coastlines.
With the seaside towns of both Bude and Westward Ho! within easy reach, (less than 30 mins), plus numerous sandy coves to discover...You'll be spoilt for choice.
If you venture slightly further afield you'll also find the stunning shores surrounding the historic Tintagel Castle and the picturesque village of Port Isaac, made famous by the
TV series Doc Martin.
PLACES TO VISIT
From historic fishing villages to
RHS gardens, there's plenty to discover nearby, and the charming village of Clovelly is less than a 25 min drive away.
The beautiful gardens of
RHS Rosemoor are less than a 30 min drive and they often hold special events, so it's worth checking their website for details.
Or maybe you'll choose to immerse yourself in the wild and visit the dramatic Spekes Mill Mouth waterfall, which is located just a 25 min drive from Mill Farm.
It's in a beautiful area of rugged valleys and high cliffs, where seabirds swoop and wildflowers flourish and the waterfall plunges 157 feet (48 m) in three steps, from the edge of the cliffs to the rocky beach below.
If you're looking for an action packed stay then Tamar Lakes is only a 5 min drive away and they offer several exciting water sports, including paddle boarding and sailing ...Or for more of an adrenaline rush you can take a trip out the North Devon Wake Park, less than 20 mins away.
In nearby Bude, (around 25 mins) as well as the beautiful beaches and amazing Sea Pool, there's Surfing, Segway, Cycling, Kayaking, Coasteering, Archery and Horse Riding on the beach!
For the youngsters there are also several Theme Parks, including The Big Sheep and The Milky Way Aventure Park, both less than 30 mins away.
PLACES TO EAT
With a fabulous village pub, (Bradworthy Inn), serving delicious food within a 5 min stroll, you may not have the opportunity to use your fully-equipped kitchen...Plus the village square is also well-served during the week by several take-away vans, offering fish and chips and wood-fired pizzas.
However, if you do venture further afield there are lots of country pubs and beach-side restaurants to choose from... And Life's A Beach in Bude is one of our favourites.
We can definitely recommend the fish and chips with a sea view!
If you're in search of a cream tea...Devon or Cornish style... There are plenty around, but The Rectory Tea Rooms in Morwenstow is hard to beat. It also happens to be close to the The Bush Inn, a 13th Century Cornish pub, which also serves great food.
