Walk The South West Coast Path

Walk The South West Coast Path

The South West Coast Path runs 630 miles from Somerset to Dorset. The breath-taking stretch along north Cornwall falls right on Gwelmor's doorstep and has some seriously arduous climbs, but the rewards are worth the effort. We're are on a mission to walk entire path and are blogging each leg along the way.

Bude Sea Pool

Bude Sea Pool

Bude has its very own semi-natural sea pool just above Summerleaze Beach. Open daily and free to swim thanks to the dedicated work of the Friends of Bude Sea Pool charity. Dogs on leads welcome, a water bowl is provided but there’s no shade.

With its craggy rock-pools, colourful beach huts, open-air sea pool, surf schools, kayaking and outdoor pursuits, Summerleaze Beach has it all. The beach is dog friendly all year round but must be kept on a lead from May 21 to September 30 10am to 6pm.

The ethos behind this cosy restaurant is to 'bridge the gap between local suppliers and your plate'. And it doesn't disappoint. Menus change with the season and they encourage you to order things you've never heard of - and trust them.

A great place for the whole family. Dine out on locally produced food in a great location overlooking the lake. Meanwhile the kids are kept entertained with the interactive wildlife centre and playground. Dogs are welcome in the garden and the centre has its spa too for a spot of pampering.
