Our 2015 membership fee remains unchanged.   Most importantly, your membership fee directly supports the work of the Bude Area Tourist Board, but also markets your property to a huge audience.  Most of your bookings will be commission free, as the visitor is free to contact you direct to make a booking.  Should we make a booking, a very modest commisson fee is charged.

If you would like information about the scheme, please call into the Bude Tourist Info Centre for a chat, call us on 01288 354240 or send an email

The Bude Area Tourist Board (BATB) is the Destination Marketing (DM) and Business Organisation (BO) for Bude, as well as for the surrounding towns and villages that makes up the Bude Area of Cornwall and Devon.

As the official organisation responsible for encouraging visitors to explore this stunning area, BATB works closely with the public and private sectors to deliver a programme of targeted marketing initiatives aimed at increasing visitor numbers, growing visitor spend and creating jobs.

Through our Tourist Information Centre, website, guide publications, social media, targeted marketing & extensive PR campaigns, we are able to reach a large audience, spreading the news about Bude and what it has to offer and promoting the Bude area as the No 1 place to visit.

  • The Tourist Information Centre is open daily (excluding the week over Christmas)
  • We print approximately 40,000 guides each year (equal split between the official Bude Accommodation Guide and official Bude Tourist Guide.
  • Our website gets around 500,000 visits per year.
  • We have active Twitter and Facebook accounts and interact comprehensively with our visitors.
  • Although we facilitate commission free accommodation bookings between visitor and accommodation owner, our booking service and website process bookings totalling around £200,000 per year. 
  • We have a very successful PR and Marketing Agency and regularly get Bude in the National Press. 

Accommodation members are given a free availability calendar to facilitate bookings.  Alternatively, you can link your availability calendar from SiteMinder and Eviivo. 

Only quality assured accommodation may benefit from membership.  We will inspect all properties who are not already inspected by VisitEngland or the AA.  See
