Out and About

If you fancy a little road trip, get out and about in and around Bude and explore!

There are many historic places and attractions in Cornwall just a modest drive away to stir your curiosity. How about a quiet ramble around an idyllic village, with a pub lunch thrown in? Or perhaps you are looking for a family day out at one of Cornwall’s best attractions?

Below is a handy directory listing of the best attractions and places to visit whilst on holiday in Bude to explore other areas of Cornwall and Devon.

Harry’s Walks

With so many spectacular walks in the Bude area, it can be tough deciding what to do. Harry McConville B.A.(Mod.) Nat.Sci. who is a local artist, historian and naturalist will pick the very best route for the season and sights, which could include the SWCP, canal, nature reserve or battle site. Children will love the pond dipping and rockpool ramble sessions.

Bodmin Jail

Visit the cold dank cells, look up at the thin rays of light filtering through a small barred window and imagine being sentenced to even a week in such desolation, a very lonely life with the knowledge each day would bring more of the same cold, hunger and hard labour on the treadmill as a civil prisoner.

Air Extreme

Air Extreme offers you a wide range of bouncing activities! Come and have fun in our massive indoor trampoline park in Barnstaple North Devon, filled wall to wall with trampolines and much more. We advise customers to book online in advance to ensure you don't miss out!
