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.

“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.”

“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!”
