Bude holiday cottages
Why go on holiday to Bude?
Hundreds of thousands of people descend on Cornwall every year and many return, simply because there is so much to see.
With so many beautiful parts in the county, everyone has their favourite resort town to visit. For some it is Newquay, for some St Ives, whilst some prefer Truro. But with eight fantastic main beaches and several smaller coves, the small seaside resort town of Bude understandably attracts large numbers.
Found on the northern part of the county, Bude is the most easily accessible and achievable distance in Cornwall for many UK residents. If you needed more convincing, the resort has twice been voted as the best UK coastal resort in the British Travel Awards.
Things to see on holiday in Bude
It would be rude to not take advantage of Bude’s location by exploring parts of Cornwall and Devon whilst you’re there. There are so many possible days out and things to see which is why so many people choose to return!
Bude is surrounded by natural beauty and is a haven for walkers who enjoy a view. To soak in the beauty, there are a number of potential walking routes to take. There is the south west coastal path, the stunning beaches and the wild moorland all ready to be explored.
Whilst walking the coast you will spot the island of Lundy floating on the horizon. This remote island is just three miles long and lies 10 miles from the coast. A boat trip can be booked to this unforgettable island.
Away from Bude, a half an hour drive south will take you to the village of Tintagel, home to King Arthur, and to the picturesque harbours of Boscastle and Port Isaac. Whilst north, towards Devon, you will find the rural beauty of Morwenstow and Clovelly, a village where there are no cars!
Some possible sites to tie in with your walks could be Broomhill Sculpture Gardens, The Castle Bude and Hawker’s Hut.
Things to do on holiday in Bude
Situated on the border of Cornwall and Devon, there’s plenty to do in Bude, including water sport activities such as surfing, kayaking and sea cliff climbing. Or you could try your hand at horse riding, cycling and golf.
For a family day out there are a few theme parks just a short drive from Bude centre. These include The Milky Way Adventure Park, The Big Sheep and Camel Creek.
If the weather is nice, though, nothing can beat a long day on the beautiful beaches. Just five minutes from the centre of Bude is Summerleaze Beach. For just £10-20 you can hire your own pretty pastel coloured beach hut for the day. Pull up a deck chair and take it all in! The breakwater is also a great spot for crabbing.
