Bude, the area “where coast meets countryside” contains some of the most spectacular coastal scenery in the British Isles, much of it designated as an “area of outstanding natural beauty”, Access to wide open spaces, with a variety of wildlife habitats, is easy on foot, by bike or car. Enjoy the freedom of the open roads in the north of the county where traffic jams and stress are rare, but if you wish to explore further a field, virtually anywhere in Devon or Cornwall is all in a day trip.
Bude TownThe area is almost chameleon-like as it changes throughout the year to satisfy the different needs of its visitors. The weather here is kind and Bude boasts its own eco-climate which, with low rainfall and high sunshine hours, often bears little resemblance to regional or national forecasts. Another fact which makes Bude special and particularly inviting all year round. The warm months either side of summer are wonderful for walkers as the clifftops at Bude are one of the most spectacular sections of the South West Way. The Sustrans Cycle route also passes through the area. For the less athletic the Bude Canal, with flat tow-path walks, marshes, thriving wetland and recreational areas provide excellent access for birdwatchers, walkers and cyclists.
Bude TownIn recent years Bude has excelled as a centre for activity sports. Surfing has always been popular with the wild coastline and Atlantic breakers providing a special challenge, More recently, canoeing and kayaking on the river and Canal, abseiling down real cliffs and many other sporting opportunities have enthralled new generations of visitors, many of whom return year after year.
Families too find the small, friendly resort of Bude an ideal holiday base. There are miles of sandy beaches on which laze, they are consistently commended for cleanliness and lifeguards are on duty during the summer months and there’s a tide-washed open-air pool too. Nearby are many family attractions offering something for every age group and providing real “value for money” days out and happy memories to last a lifetime.
