The Living room, which is carpeted, has a Patio Door which gives access to a balcony area that is raised about 1.5 meters above the garden and has views over the north part of Widemouth Beach, the cliffs and sea.
A table and 4 chairs are on the patio to enable visitors to dine "al Fresco", with an outside light allowing guests to sit out and eat or drink when it is dark, cushions for the Patio Furniture are available behind the sofa in the Living area.
Bedroom 1 is also off the Hall, it is also carpeted, and has a double bed plus a large wardrobe, a bedside cabinet with bedside light, a bedside table with 2 draws, a light on the table and mirror over it for the ladies to dry their hair or apply makeup, this room also has a chest of draws.
Bedroom 2 is smaller than Bedroom 1 but is also carpeted and has a double bed, there are 2 bedside cabinets with table lamps and a smaller wardrobe which has the space split between shelves and space to hang clothes. it also has a long mirror on one of the walls.
The Bathroom has recently been refurbished and the bath has been replaced with a full width (1.6 meters) walk in shower cubicle and a power shower which gives a constant flow of water at a temperature of your choice, it is not affected by the use of taps in the kitchen. There is a washbasin with a mixer tap and a WC with a soft close lid plus a small cabinet over the wash basin and a large cabinet on the opposite wall.

A bin filled with various beach toys is also in the shed and a number of body boards of various sizes. The clothes line prop and pegs are also kept in the shed.
The Hamlet that is Widemouth Bay is signposted either from 2 exits off the A39 South of Bude or by taking the coast road from Bude. The Bay is large and is split into 2 beaches, Widemouth Beach, the closest to the bungalow is a dog free beach during the spring and summer. Black Rock beach is dog friendly and is just a 2 minute walk along Widemouth beach to the south. It has, over the years, become difficult to separate the 2 parts of the beach because of erosion of the cliffs but the lifeguards will tell you where to go if you have a dog.
Surfing is possible on both parts of the beach with Royal National Lifeboat Institute lifeguards being in attendance from 10 in the morning to 6 in the evening every day during the Spring and Summer to ensure the safety of all bathers.
It is possible to hire body boards, full size surf boards and wet suits on the beach car parks also lessons are provided for beginners. Widemouth Beach and Black Rock beach both have cafes which provide hot and cold food plus soft drinks and ice creams with seating being available under cover or out in the open.
The Cornish Coast path runs through the car park and to the south the walker can get to Crackington Haven, where refreshments are available and Boscastle which is well known after the flood in 2004 that caused severe damage. This walk does have some steep climbs and is not really for anyone not reasonably fit, in the other direction the walk is relatively easy and the walker can reach the breakwater on Summerlease Beach in Bude without having to cross a road.
Bude is a busy small town that has in addition to Summerlease Beach, a Sea Pool that is maintained by the residents and Crooklets Beach, with a leisure centre and indoor swimming pool on the main road out of the town. It has numerous cafes, restaurants, hotels and bars also small shops and 4 supermarkets with 2 of the Supermarkets being close to the leisure center. Bude also has a river and canal almost running through the center and on land between these two water courses are Tennis Courts a Bowling Green, Squash Courts and crazy golf with an 18 hole golf course just off the town center. Pitch & Putt is also available and skate boarders are catered for by Crooklets beach.
The area surrounding Bude is a mixture of the undulating hills and thatched cottages of Devon and the rocky cliffs of the North Cornish Coast and Bodmin Moor, the area is largely dependent on tourism and farming for its income and visitors with a car can easily visit Bodmin Moor and Jamaica Inn on the A30 made famous by Daphnie Du Maurier. Exmoor and Dartmoor are also near enough to be explored in a day by car from the bungalow.
The area has some interesting villages with Hartland Quay and Clovelly well know for their smuggling activities in the past. Clovelly is interesting because of the gradients of the main street where they supplied the shops using a sled and donkey in the past. Walking down to the Harbour is not tiring but a ride back on a landrover is very welcome for some visitors. Further North on the A39 are 2 small towns Bideford and Barnstable with some small coastal towns en route.
Travelling South from Widemouth Bay many small villages often situated in valleys opening onto the sea, in addition to Boscastle we have Tintagel, famous for the legend of King Arthur and the round table, Polzeath which has an excellent safe surfing beach and is well known because it has been the resort of choice in England by David Cameroun a former British Prime Minister. Continuing South we have the village of Rock on the North bank of the river Camel and a ferry is available to take visitors to Padstow on the South side of the river. Padstow is a very busy little town made famous by Rick Stien the celebrity chef who specialises in fish menus. Padstow is accessible by car on the A39 or a cycle path using an old railway line from Wadebridge where cycle hire is also available, with secure parking for the cycles in Padstow whilst you explore the harbour and small old town.
Further south is Newquay, St Ives, Lands End, the Lizard Peninsular, and on the other coast Mullion Cove, `Looe, Polperro the Roseland Peninsular, the round houses at Verion and the city full of history which is Plymouth. Plymouth Hoe is a tourist attraction and is where Sir Francis Drake played bowels whilst arrival of the Spanish Amarda which the British fleet subsequently defeated.
The area is full of history and attractive, interesting places to visit, it would be almost impossible to see everything in a one or two week visit and it is believed that most people would almost certainly want to return.
