Things To Do
Cann Orchard is only 3 miles from the seaside town of Bude.
Walk the beautiful Canal, bursting with wildlife. Fantastic for birdwatching on its wet marshes, or if your lucky spot an otter!
Overlooking Crooklets beach enjoy a game of Golf, or walk to Summerleaze to enjoy a dip in the fantastic tidal sea pool! (this is a must!). Watch the sun go down with a delicious cocktail at one of the trendy bars and restaurants overlooking the beach.
The northernmost Cornish village hosts a beautiful ancient Church, a cosy pub and one of the best Cream Teas in North Cornwall at The Rectory tearooms. Morwenstow is most famous for The Reverend Stephen Hawker, who lived there in the 1800’s. He is renowned for keeping a watchful eye over ships travelling through the dangerous waters from the wooden hut he built from driftwood. Stomp along the sheer cliffs to Hawkers Hut and take in the views!
Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Crackington Haven is 15 minutes from Bude. A fantastic spot for surfing, swimming or walking the rugged coastal path towards Boscastle. Enjoy a Cornish Cider and some seriously good pub grub at and watch the sun go down.
Made famous for the 2004 Boscastle flood, the village suffered extensive damage after flash floods tore through the valley. Just down the coast from Crackington Haven the unspoilt harbour village offers fantastic scenery, historic buildings and beautiful walks. There are many pubs, cafes, potteries and galleries to enjoy. Every October the Boscastle food festival attracts thousands of foodies from all over the southwest.
A thirty minute drive from Cann Orchard, Tintagel is renowned for its association with the legend of King Arthur. King Arthurs ruined clifftop castle overlooks the rough North Cornish coast. Enjoy a stomp around the grounds, or walk the clifftops to nearby Bossiney and Trebarwith famous for surfing.
Well known for the beautiful scenic shots in Doc Martin, the little fishing village attracts a lot of attention! Watch the gigs row out of the harbour, or enjoy a spot of lunch in one of the great pubs. Better still, Nathan Outlaws 2 Michelin starred restaurant now runs here, as well as his more affordable Fish kitchen!
Known to many as Padstein, Padstow is another little foodie fishing town! Rick Steins original fish restaurant looks over the quaint harbour. He also offers a fish and chip shop, deli, and cafes! Paul Ainsworth’s 1 Michelin starred restaurant Number 6 is a must try, with delish set menus at reasonable prices.
Padstow’s harbour is undoubtedly the strongest attraction in the town and visitors find themselves drawn to it like a magnet. Fishing and pleasure craft rock side-by-side on their moorings, children fish for crabs from the harbour wall, quayside inns and cafes overlook the calm water.
From Padstow take the little ferry to Rock, or enjoy a day on the golden sands of Daymer Bay.
