Bude is a buzzing family resort reminiscent of those classic Cornwall holidays filled with golden sands and blue skies. The town brings together beautiful original Victorian architecture mixed with plenty of contemporary charm, as do our holiday lets. Bude is an ideal base for seeing the sights of North Cornwall and exploring some of the best beaches the county has to offer.
Right on the doorstep Bude has the gorgeous golden sands of Summerleaze beach and the iconic sea pool. A great spot for dog walks and water sports alike, this beach is the ultimate location for a family day together in Cornwall. For serious walkers, there’s miles of coastal path navigating the dramatic coastline, be sure to head to Widemouth Bay for a stunning trek along the dunes. If you’re looking for a quieter beach, hide away in a (not so) secret beach just north of Bude or have a little adventure to find your own spot. Stay in a cottage with a sea view to really make the most of the stunning scenery come rain or shine.
As a popular destination throughout the year, Bude has an amazing array of things to see and do. From walking and watersports to restaurants and galleries, the town will be sure to keep you busy. For those who want to explore further, our Bude cottages are also in a great position to visit other popular towns in the area. Foodies will be particularly taken with Padstow (home of all things Rick Stein and friends) and the many restaurants, cafes, bars and bakeries to explore. TV addicts will remember fondly the scenes of Doc Martin played out in the town of Port Isaac, a great spot for some photos. Tintagel castle, the legendary home of King Arthur, is wonderfully atmospheric and sure to get the imagination pumping of children both little and large.
Great for all the family, including the dog, a holiday cottage in Bude will quench your thirst for sun, sea and sand. All within walking distance of your doorstep.
