Northcott Mouth Beach  

   

   

This National Trust beach is set just North of Bude, a secluded spot, ideal for seashore exploration, and good surfing.

 

Northcott Mouth, though has its own beach, at low tide the sandy beach runs as far down to Crooklets beach in Bude to the south, and as far as Duckpool in the north. Walking between theses beaches at low tide is possible, it is unadvisable unless you know the tide timetable very well, as it is very easy to get cut off and stranded on the cliff face.

 

Northcott Mouth is like many beaches with in this area and is a mixture of pebbles and sand. At high tide most of the sand disappears leaving the large pebbles on the edge of the coast. When the tide is out the beach expands and exposes the sand, with fingers of rock jutting out from the sure. These are know as the Bude Formation.

 

Northcott Mouth has lifeguards during the summer months that patrol each and everyday, from morning till dusk, so you can feel very safe if you fancy a swim. Please be sure to observe the flags, and the beach safety code.
