Which Bude will you discover?


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.  Bude has been named as the Best UK Coastal Resort for two consecutive years!

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.

It's been a warm dry day but I think all is about to change looking at the sky behind Bude Sea Pool. Doesn't make much difference when you're in a wetsuit 😀

Things to do in Bude… advice and suggestions from Bude locals and visitors

A page of real advice and suggestions from Bude locals and visitors. A great list of places to eat, places to visit, things to do, things to see and secret spots to visit.

Enjoy the Bude Sea Pool

Bude Sea Pool was built in the 1930s to provide a safe environment for swimming for the people of Bude. This semi-natural pool, measuring 91m long by 45m wide, was created under the curve of the cliffs in a conservation area. It provides the unique experience of being in or on the sea, close to the ferocity of the Atlantic Ocean, but sheltered from its extreme effects.

Cycle Routes in Bude

One of the most pleasant and active ways to take in the sights of Bude is on two wheels. With roads and trails that are generally quiet and accessible, you’ll find us a great place for cycling breaks in Cornwall. There are some challenging places to conquer, but also pleasant, level routes such as the Bude Canal towpath and nature reserve.
