Bude is an unspoiled and picturesque Victorian seaside town with charming shops and restaurants which are mostly locally owned and run to showcase the individual creativity and resourcefulness of the local area. It is no surprise to the locals that Bude is consistently recognised by the British Travel Awards – hauling in a bronze, a silver and two Gold awards in four successive years!
Bude has one of only two Sea Pools in the UK and its safe, sandy beaches are Life Guard patrolled from May to September, making them also popular for surfing and body-boarding. For those who like to get out and about, there are many local cycle paths and of course, the North Cornwall Coastal path which affords stimulating walks with spectacular scenery.
Being just off the main A39 (known as the Atlantic Highway), many local attractions are easily accessible within 30 minutes to an hour’s drive and we welcome many German visitors who love to explore the area that gave life to the popular Rosamunde Pilcher novels.
