North Devon – Cornwall coast Path, based Bude, Saturday 8th to 15th June 2019

The Club has booked three self-catering properties in Bude, on the north Cornish coast, for a week in June 2019. The intention is to walk between Westward Ho! and Tintagel along the South West coast path, including the most strenuous section of the entire path, between Hartland Point and Bude! However, to make this manageable, we will hire a private coach for the week so we can take a more leisurely stroll over 2 days on this stretch. The accommodation is in Foreshore, with 9 bedrooms, Salty’s, with 4, (see Elite West website for details of both) as well as Upper Deck, also 4 bedrooms (see Syke’s Cottages). The cost for the week’s stay is £150. All places in the Club’s properties have now been booked, but you are welcome to be placed on a reserve list. For those who have paid a deposit of £30, please note that the balance of £120 is due by 1st April 2019. All accommodation is within walking distance of shops etc in Bude. It is possible to travel to Bude by public transport – train to Exeter and then a bus. Bookings with Jill, please. Please let Jill know if you book independent accommodation and want to use our private coach for walks.
