Bude’s Main Beaches

We have many small and hidden coves in Bude, but here we give information about the main eight. To the north of the town centre we have Duckpool, Sandymouth Bay, Northcott Mouth and Crooklets Beach. Summerleaze Beach in the town centre, and Widemouth Bay, Black Rock and Millook to the south.


Winter and Seasonal use of Beach Huts

Around 70% of the Beach Huts in Bude are used for daily hire.  Of these huts, a selection are available to hire for the winter period (October to March) or for an extended period of October to June.


July and the Bude Canal Bicentenary

Mid July is always a fantastic time to come to Bude, but this year there is more reason than ever as Bude is celebrating the Bicentennial of Bude Canal


Bude Christmas Cards

We're asked for Bude Christmas cards every year.  This year, we've decided to see if we produce a series of unique cards to sell at the Bude Tourist Information Centre and to supply them to the shops in town.  If you're an artist or simply enjoy painting as a hobby, why not get involved?

A walk around St Gennys and stay at Boots Cottage

Access to St Genny's - amongst many others rivalling in their outstanding beauty – is an easy half hour drive from Boots Cottage (sleeps 2/3) at Helebridge, Bude. Although we are now fully booked for the summer period, we would be delighted to welcome you for an autumn stay with 10% discount to sample the delights of the stunning coastline in its autumn glory.


Annual and winter tenancy of Bude beach huts

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.
