Bude offers the best value coastal accommodation in Cornwall
At the Bude Tourist Information Centre, we receive hundreds of phone calls each month. Many of these are from visitors enquiring about accommodation in Bude.
Recently, we’ve noticed that visitors were very complimentary about the price of accommodation in Bude. Some were even questioning the quality, because their shortlisted accommodation in Bude was cheaper than those in other areas of Cornwall.
We decided to see if this was actually true and looked at the cost of bookable rooms at a B&B for two adults in a double room (with ensure facilities) for two nights on 4th February 2017 on the VisitBude, PadstowLive and VisitSouthEastCornwall tourism websites.
Bude – average price £144 (£100 to £150)
Padstow – average price £169 (£130 to £210)
Looe – average price £151 (£130 to £170)
We then looked for a week self-catering for two adults and two children on 10th June 2017.
Bude – average price £500 (£365 to £925)
Padstow – average price £660 (£365 to £849)
Looe – average price £760 (£500 to £1120)
This shows that despite being voted the Best UK Coastal Resort in the UK for two years in a row, the average price of B&B accommodation in Bude is 16% cheaper than Padstow and 5% cheaper than Looe. Equally, the average price for a week self-catering in Bude is 28% cheaper than Padstow and 41% cheaper than Looe!
