This petite double is definitely one for the sprightly, but the lack of cat-swinging elbow room is more than compensated by the huge balcony which is just perfect for watching the sun set over Widemouth Bay.

Halloween Party

Oct 2018

Be afraid. Be very afraid. We’ve got more spooky scares and ghoulish surprises in store than the Addams Family with a very devilish haunted children’s party from 4.30-6.30 and the undead shanty singers The Bencoolen Wreckers from 7pm. more info

Fire Bay

Nov 2018

Bay View Inn FireworksBring the kids. Bring your friends. Bring sparklers. We’ll bring the fireworks. Lots of fireworks. Then we’ll sit back on with a glass of wine and a tasty snack and watch the most jaw-dropping fireworks display ever over Widemouth Bay.


We hope you will too

We fell in love with The Bay View Inn over a decade ago on our first holiday in Cornwall. This is me with Jess, a pepper Dandie Dinmont; Max, a Lhasa Apso (Max snuck into the kitchen that year…hmm); and in my arms, Holly, a rambunctious Shih Apso cross.

For us, The Bay View was Cornwall: great value, locally-sourced food; fine beers; peerless sunset views; and a laid-back surfer vibe that puts a smile on your face and keeps it there long after you've gone home.

So when the chance came to make our local away from home our home and our local, we jumped at it.
