Within a few minutes of the apartments you can be into any number of leisure activities, Positioned on the longest Coastal Footpath, "The South West Way", you could explore the cliff tops or enjoy many other local walks. The canal and path provide level walking, excellent local fishing, and it is historically interesting with one of only three sea lock gates in the country. It was built to assist local agriculture by transporting Bude's mineral rich sand to local farms. Maybe you would prefer a game of golf?
