Boyton is on the edge of the village near Week St Mary. This rural park offers a quiet break away from the hustle and bustle of town. It's only a 15 minute drive from the sea side town of Bude and the North Coast with its many fantastic beaches and rugged landscape which offers something for all.

Bude is on the North Cornwall coast and is a great holiday destination that has something for everyone - from romantic retreats for couples, action filled family holidays, or a haven for the nature or geology enthusiast.

Crackington Haven is a small cove with pub and café near the stoney beach nestled between the cliffs. Follow the coast road (narrow lanes) or the Atlantic highway to the next village.

Boscastle 'Famous for the floods of 2004' is a beautiful place to visit. Boscastle is a tiny port with a natural harbour, set in a narrow ravine, and boasts some very attractive thatches and white-washed cottages.

Continuing along the next place is Tintagel, another must see. Built half on the mainland and half on a jagged headland projecting into the Cornish sea, Tintagel Castle is one of the most spectacular historic sites in Britain. Its association with King Arthur makes it also one of the most famous. Take your walking shoes for this one.

Then of course there is Port Isaac the attractive fishing village with its narrow, winding streets lined with old white-washed cottages and traditional granite, slate-fronted Cornish houses. These streets with small harbour or 'Portwenn' have now been made famous by the popular comedy drama series 'Doc Martin' played by Martin Clunes.
Fishing and scenic trips can be taken from the harbour during the summer months. Both Port Isaac and nearby Port Gaverne are within what is both an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a Heritage Coast Area. Consequently, there are lots of lovely walks both inland and along the coast, either towards Polzeath or Tintagel in the other direction.


There are many villages, towns and cities that are worth seeing, far too many to mention, Padstow, Rock, Falmouth St Ives. Truro and Exeter Cathedral towns offer architecture, history and shopping. Plymouth has a variety of places to eat, including The Barbican which is ideal for alfresco eating. Visit Plymouth Gin distillery or the Aquarium.

Clovelly clings to a 400 foot cliff in North Devon and has no vehicular traffic on its steeply cobbled street, just donkeys and sledges. A walk down to the working harbour, with its 14th century quay, this is another scene to be captured as a treasured memory.

Whatever you decide to do we're sure you will enjoy and will hopefully come back again to see what you have missed.
