Brilliant Bude Wins Gold Award for “Best UK Coastal Resort”

Praised for its fantastic activities, beautiful beaches and brilliant hospitality, Bude is thrilled to have scooped a coveted prize at this year’s British Travel Awards. It marks some great progress over recent years, during which the resort has blossomed in so many areas.

It caps a fantastic recent renaissance for the town, which has more great things to see, do, taste and experience than ever before. Whether it comes to great attractions and activities, stunning wild coastline or amazing local food and drink, Bude has raised the bar. In truth, many locals have known the resort’s potential for years; but to see the realisation of this capped by an award is fantastic

From old favourites to new additions

Besides raising the bar for the resort as a whole in recent times, Bude has also raised the curtain on some of the biggest and best events the town has ever seen. Musical specials such as Bude Jazz Festival and Folk Festival continue to thrive, while new highlights like Bude For Food have helped cement the resort’s reputation for excellent food, with an unbelievable variety and quality of restaurants, pubs and eateries packed into a single cute seaside town.

Ongoing redevelopment has also been vital however, and continues to improve the town. Our cracking new beach huts are a prime example, delivering these elegant, classic looking seaside shelters to more holiday makers.

Similarly, our base at Bude Tourist Information Centre is better and friendlier than ever, whether you want to book a local trip, explore some fascinating local history or buy a quick souvenir or an ice cream.

Last but not least, we believe that Bude has succeeded through developing in harmony with its surroundings. From young kids right through to avid ramblers and wildlife spotters, guests love the leafy walks, unspoiled beaches and sense of seclusion. How many British seaside resorts have otters, wild orchids and even the odd pine marten just footsteps from the town centre?

One of Britain’s best resorts, as voted for by you! 

It is fantastic for Bude to be officially recognised at a big event with guests that included big names in tourism and hospitality. However, the real pride for Bude is that these particular awards are voted for by the most important people of all: you, our visitors and the public! So perhaps you can forgive us for being in a celebratory mood; no longer is Bude a beautiful but unsung location, but now officially recognised as an excellent destination.

Don’t take it from us or the awards however, but come and see for yourself what makes Bude such a vibrant place to visit. We guarantee you a warm welcome and stacks to enjoy and experience here in the prettiest and friendliest of Cornish resorts.
