Fancy having a beach hut to call your own? A good number of the huts at both Crooklets and Summerleaze are set-aside for annual tenancies. Many of the huts we use for daily hire are leased out on a seasonal tenancy for the off-peak period. There are no qualifying criteria - anyone can have a beach hut, but demand is high and there is a long waiting list for the most popular beach huts.
We are concerned that the volume of visitors will put huge and unprecedented pressure on non-patrolled beaches. From a tourism point of view, whilst many people are already fearful, the last thing that our community needs is a tragic incident on one of our beaches.
So, the Lockdown has been relaxed - we can all get outdoors more often. Our 'Be a Tourist at Home' blog posts will remind you about places you may not have visited in and around Bude for a while, or would perhaps not normally visit.
