Summerleaze Beach and Bude Lower Wharf area with a wide selection of places to eat is only a 10-minute cycle ride away using a traffic free section of Route 3 of the National Cycle Network. This is accessed from a quiet parish road just at the entrance to Lower Lynstone Lakes by the parking area.
Using the same parish road, you can join a foot path adjacent to Bude Canal which forms part of the Canal and Coast Path Circular walk. Turning left along the Canal will take you into Bude. Turning right with take you to the Weir Bistro and further onto the long sandy beach of Widemouth Bay and back into Bude along the stunning South West Coast Path should you wish to turn it into a circular walk.
The field behind the cabins can be used by guests, this has direct access to Bude Canal if you wish to launch a canoe or kayak into the water.
If you need to take the car it’s less than a 5-minute drive into Bude.
The two spring fed lakes offer not only a tranquil setting but are a haven for wild life. The king fisher visits most days, as do the herons and moor hens. Listen out for the woodpecker, even the usually shy Jay can be spotted. On the land it’s not unusual to see rabbits, stoats and foxes. The bank-side below the cabins is home to water voles which are often seen dipping in and out of the water. When the wind drops dragon flies of all shapes and sizes gather over the water creating a sea of electric blue. To achieve this Eco balance unfortunately dogs are not allowed, even the most well behaved.
The Lakes are stocked with Mirror and Common Carp, Green Tench, Crucian & Leather Carp. The new owners plan to clear the lakes of weed over the winter and offer fishing to exclusively to guests using the cabins.
