Gorgeous Summer Time
Sumer time in Bude is many guests’ favourite season, with so much to see and enjoy. July and August are peak time for family attractions, blue skies and some rip-roaring events such as the colourful Bude Carnival and Leopalooza Music Festival.
How else can you make the most of the summer? Whatever your preferences, the coast is just too beautiful to ignore. Depending on whether you want great facilities and ease of access, or somewhere more remote to explore, our Bude beaches guide should have something for everyone.
Otherwise, perfect days out in North Cornwall depend on your taste. Long days and late sunsets make summer days ideal for longer walks along the dramatic South West Coast Path (our for explorers section has more). If the wild is close to your heart, you’ll also enjoy our local nature reserves.
Should you have brought a board, kayak or fishing rod with you, you may be too distracted of course! Surfing is not so much an activity as a way of life in Bude and many visitors choose to make an annual pilgrimage with friends. With some fabulous beaches and great value campsites and caravan parks near Bude to make your base, it needn’t be expensive either.
