Tamar Lakes are conveniently located just inland from the coastal resort of Bude. The fun, relaxed atmosphere makes it a great location to launch your own craft or hire a range of equipment from rowing boats and kayaks to windsurfers and dinghies.

Discover a network of footpaths and off-road trails; walk across the dam and watch water cascade from the top; explore woodlands, and traverse through Upper Tamar’s wildlife zone, where you might see herons, kingfishers and egrets.

With a sandy beach, well-equipped play area and café for refreshments, Tamar Lakes are an excellent choice for a family day out. Why not extend your stay and camp on site with beautiful views over the lake.
