    Where is it?

    The Crow's Nest is part of a brand-new development, The Lookout: five innovative eco-homes directly on the Widemouth Bay coastline. Each Lookout retreat is designed to blend seamlessly into the surrounding rural environment, harmonising with the natural ebb and flow of the coastline. With planted grass roofs, individual curved patio areas planted with wildflowers, and eco features such as air source heat pumps, these retreats offer sustainable holidaying in one of Cornwall’s most untouched stretches of coast.

    Each retreat is unique, from the décor to the features. The Crow's Nest welcomes you in with warm, naturally inspired living spaces, rustic yet elegant wooden furnishings, and a bubbling outdoor hot tub facing the ocean.

    At a glance:

    • The Crow's Nest is so close to the beach that you can jump from bed to board, walking barefoot in your wetsuit to the sand for a morning surf. Check the swell without even leaving your retreat, with sea views from almost every room.
    • The location couldn’t be any better. You’ll be staying directly on the beach, where you can pop back during a day in the waves to grab lunch from the kitchen. You’re seconds from great local facilities, including a surf hire directly next door and a beach café for brunching, lunching and coffee fixes all day long. Plus, direct access to the coast path seconds from your front door means you can walk for miles.
    • Leave the car behind and find everything you need on foot, with three pubs walking distance away, and Bude’s town centre a scenic walk along the coast (with buses running to and fro).
    • Soak up views of Black Rock Beach, the wild north end of Widemouth Bay, with rugged rocks, crashing waves, sunrises, sunsets, gulls, beach walkers, dolphins on the horizon and more. See it all from the comfort of your sofa, balcony or hot tub.

    The area:

    Widemouth Bay is a long unspoilt stretch of sandy beach and craggy cliffs that is all about a sense of space, a 'big sky' feel and an endless horizon. In Cornwall's northern corner near the coastal town of Bude, this stretch of coastline is known for its great surf and watersports opportunities. With lifeguard cover throughout the summer season, Widemouth is a great spot for beginners and more seasoned surfers alike. The bay has a relaxed vibe, with a handful of pubs and cafes and friendly locals. It’s also the dream destination for those wanting to get away from it all, with plenty of rural beauty, countryside and coast path for miles either side.

    Less than 3 miles away, Bude has plenty of restaurants and a wide range of shops, from essential supermarkets to surf and lifestyle stores. If you're looking for some adrenaline-fuelled fun, there are all kinds of activities on offer nearby, including coasteering, surf, windsurf and kitesurf lessons, stand up paddleboarding, bike hire, canoeing and kayaking.
