Getaway to Cornwall and Devon

The best thing about The Royal Hotel is we are perfectly located to explore both Cornwall and Devon and here are just a few ideas to do when exploring North Cornwall. 

1. Visit Bude 

This coastal town is the hot spot for surfing and soaking up the sun from the beautiful sandy beaches, there is an endless variety of water sports for you to try out, from paddleboarding and sea canoeing. A big, beautiful green space dominates the heart of the town where you can enjoy picnicking or morning walks while independent shops and eclectic cafes. 

2. Crackington Haven

Bude’s much quieter and more exclusive neighbor is a scenic seaside spot with a sandy beach that is ideal for surfing or soaking up the sunshine. The Crackington cracker walk goes past the beach and along the rugged cliffs, taking in epic coastal views while you stroll along, before returning through the forested Ludon Valley. 

3. Launceston 

This charming old town offers wonderful amenities and attractions, including a 13th-century castle or hops aboard the steam railway to discover the beautiful countryside by train. 

Only 10 miles from breathtaking Bodmin Moor, so ensure you venture out in the wilds of this vast granite moorland. 

4. Port Issac 

Iconic harbour with its shallow turquoise waters and old fishing vessels, known as the film set for Doc Martin.

Grab a drink in one of the harbourfront pubs. Far-reaching coastal views, wonderful walks, and a couple of shops provide a quaint setting for a Cornish day trip.

5. Tintagel

Tintagel village is so much more than just a mighty castle – with a few shops and restaurants dotted about, St. Nectan’s Glen which hides a stunning waterfall, it’s an exciting little coastal day out, the medieval ruins of Tintagel Castle, now managed by English Heritage, is a beautiful place to explore and a must-visit for anyone traveling the Cornish north coast. Discover sculptures, history, and legends while investigating this ancient attraction.
