Northcott Mouth Beach

Northcott Mouth
Last updated:

Northcott Mouth is the main stretch of sand that at low tide joins up with Crooklets beach in the south and almost as far as Duckpool in the north. However, it is not advisable to attempt the walk unless you know the tide times as it is easy to get cut off.

As with many of the beaches in this area there is a mix of pebbles at high tide and expanses of sand, punctuated by the distinctive fingers of rock known as the Bude Formation.

My favourite beach


Jul 11th 2020

This is my favourite beach in the Bude area. Incredibly clean with gorgeous sand, fabulous rock pools and a huge cave if you’re up to clamouring over the big rocks. Dogs allowed off lead. It’s simply stunning. Bonus is Margaret’s cornish cream teas up the road. Pretty garden setting, and her raucous laughter can’t help but bring a smile to your face.
