Bude is still the place to be in No-nonsense November! Whilst creatures are preparing for the long winter hideaway, the many wooded areas surrounding the pretty seaside town are a treasure trove of interest to both humans and their four-legged friends.
I recently walked my lovely Poochon friend Basil up into the wooded areas around Broomhill at Stamford Hill. We didn’t witness any battles but did have a great time sniffing out the gorgeous countryside – we also had some superb glittering sea views as we looked back across Bude from the hill. As you can see Basil is also a photographer’s dream and would have happily posed all day.
After stopping for a bench lunch outside a picturesque Inn in Poughill, we continued on our way towards the little gem of Northcott Mouth, delighting in the discovery of an interesting bridlepath taking us all the way back to Bude via Burn Park. Despite a little grey drizzle dancing in the air we made it safely back to base (a three-hour roundtrip) – Basil a little bedraggled and dog-tired but still eager for more and Helen looking back on another voyage of discovery courtesy of her other stalwart companion – OS Pathfinder .
If you love discovering the countryside (with or without a furry friend) Bude is just the bee’s knees for a No-nonsense November breath of fresh air. Boots Cottage just along the canal is a great walking base where you will be welcomed with both maps and a little madness!
