Nature reserves

With a mixture of wild coast and rich countryside inland, Bude and the surrounding area has a wonderful diversity of living things to find. As accessible as much of this wildlife is, we also believe in sensitive management and striking a healthy balance between human activity and natural sanctuary. Perhaps this is why Bude and the surrounding area features some of the most interesting and unspoiled nature sites in Cornwall.
