In 2014, Bude was delighted to win the Bronze Award for Best UK Coastal Resort. The British Travel Awards are particularly important to Bude and the tourism industry, since the awards are voted for by the public.
Well this year, Bude is upping its game and aiming to go at least one, if not two places better and to do that we need your help! Please support Bude’s bid for Gold by voting and asking everyone you know to do the same!
Bude is in a close contest with Bournemouth and there is a very real chance that Bude will win Silver or even scoop the GOLD award.

It’s very easy to vote, and only takes a minute! Your support is appreciated!
About Bude, North Cornwall
The first stop in Cornwall, where Cornwall starts – Bude was the sunniest place in the UK during 2013 (and again for several dates in 2014). The area has a laid-back charm that has not been spoiled by development and is traditional in a cherished way.
There are oodles of beautiful beaches, spectacular views and unique natural attractions including the highest cliffs in Cornwall and one of the few sea canals in the country. Other highlights include the Sea Pool, the Life Saving School (established back in 1955), the annual Festival’s – especially Bude for Food and the Jazz Festival.
Bude is large enough to provide a good range of facilities with a choice of accommodation, shops, restaurants and sports facilities, yet has avoided the attention of chain hotels, eateries and bars. The nightlife is quiet, relaxed and low-key. They say good things come in small packages – they certainly do when it comes to Bude!
