Every visitor to Bude should pay a visit to the Rustic Tea Garden at Northcott Mouth. Located right by the beach and the South West Coast Path, it’s not only an essential stop off point for refreshments - it’s a Bude institution! Massive Cornish Cream Teas and a selection of hot and cold snacks are on offer. You’ll hear Margaret’s laugh as you approach her gardens... she’s there every day from 10am until around 6pm from April to end of October (but often earlier and later). Many visitors report back that this is the place for the the very best Cornish Cream Tea!
