Vote for Bude!

There’s a lot to love about Bude. With a laidback allure all of its own, and so much to see and do, we have something for everyone. From romantic whiskaways to fun-fuelled family holidays, it’s all here, where Cornwall begins and everyday cares melt away.  Following the 2015 British Travel Awards, Bude was named as Best UK Coastal Resort.

With thrills, spills and pure escapism on the menu, Bude is a little town with big possibilities. Ramblers, riders, surfers and swimmers flock to our sunny, spotlessly clean beaches and wild coastline. However, a little-known secret is that Bude’s also fabulous for secluded golf courses and brilliant sea and coarse fishing.

We all need a little pick-me-up once in awhile, and Bude is just the ticket. Just a stone’s throw from the Devon border, epic, wild beaches and a thriving cultural hub await. Whether you embark on a day or a stay, you can expect one of the warmest welcomes in the South West. We are also child friendly, dog friendly, access friendly… in fact we’re just friendly in general here.

“Great walks along the beach with stunning views and the Atlantic Ocean crashing into the cliffs. Especially invigorating in Autumn as the winds pick up. Plenty of surf for the adventurous.”
Tony B
“Crooklets is a great beach with great facilities and some of the best waves for surfing and body boarding in the country”
“Back for the second year in a row as Bude and the surrounds make the perfect location for a family holiday, with a toddler in tow. Going home tomorrow, but we will be back! Very friendly locals, great food, beautiful coastline and beaches……plus the BEST cream teas!”
Cara D
“the ruggedness the coastline the sea the town and the countryside all so close but unspoilt part of Cornwall, love it”

“Many happy holidays in Bude. One day I’ll retire here”

Bude Heritage Day will happen despite the wet stuff - some events will move into The Parkhouse Centre located just over the road from the Castle. Dr Roger Higgs Geology Talk will take place at 3pm in there in the Conference Room - there will be time for questions afterwards
and the talk is free of charge so do take this opportunity to learn about Bude's amazing geology. The Punch & Judy will also be held in The Parkhouse Centre. Don't let rain stop play as going to clear by mid afternoon !

The beaches of Bude have always been fantastic. Now, thanks to the work of local environmental groups with the support of the wider community, they really have something to shout about – internationally recognised standards and awards.
