Forda is ideally situated for exploring the beautiful coastline of Cornwall and North Devon, whether for the rugged scenery or the numerous picturesque ports, including Padstow (made famous by Rick Stein’s enthusiasm for seafood) and Port Isaac (made famous by the TV series Doc Martin). Inland you can explore the rolling countryside of Devon and Cornwall or the more dramatic landscapes of Exmoor, Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor.
The friendly resort of Bude is six miles away, with its beaches, tidal sea water swimming pool and many other facilities. Bude has its own beaches and to the south is the beautiful beach of Widemouth Bay. A few minutes walk from the town centre you can explore the dramatic scenery of the South West Coastal Path or discover the historic Bude Canal.
This ancient fishing village has remained largely unchanged over the years - it has no vehicular traffic, just donkeys and sledges! Its steep, cobbled street tumbles its way down to the ancient fishing harbour and 14th century quay.
Port Isaac is a traditional fishing village with a vibrant local community in north Cornwall and home to the TV series Doc Martin and the Fisherman's Friends. A truly picturesque village with narrow winding streets lined with whitewashed cottages that head down to the small harbour and beach.
