With easy access to Bude's wide variety of restaurants and bars, there will be very few reasons to need your car for the duration of your stay.
Bude is large enough to provide a good range of facilities with a choice of shops, restaurants and sports facilities, yet it is small enough to retain its Cornish charm.
The nightlife is also quiet and relaxed.
The area has a laid back charm that is traditional in a cherished way. There are many independently owned shops and restaurants for you to explore, with family run businesses creating a strong ethos in the town. There is something for everyone including a diverse range of indoor and outdoor activities - from sports centres, soft play areas and stately homes to fishing, cycling, golf, surfing and other water sports.
Bude has plenty to suit all ages, interests or backgrounds.
There are many beautiful sandy beaches
to choose from with surfing hotspots and vintage style beach huts. There are also spectacular views and unique natural attractions to be found - the Bude sea pool for example is cut into the rock at Summerleaze Beach providing a more relaxed dip or child friendly swim when the sea is rougher.
There is also access to the South West Coast Path, which offers some excellent walking routes, whether you enjoy a short stroll to a stunning picnic spot or prefer a more challenging hike. Bude has some unique rock formations which can provide something of a spectacle while exploring the area - take a Geological tour or simply find Bude's unique rock formations for yourself.
