Holidays in Bude

Bude is a coastal town in the north of Cornwall, situated at the mouth of the river Neet. There are a number of excellent beaches in and around the town, such as Summerleaze and Crooklets, as well as Widemouth Bay a little further south.

Bude has so much to offer, including a fabulous town with a wide selection of independent shops, cafes and restaurants. In addition, visitors can meander along Bude Canal, or enjoy a gentle cruise in a pedal boat or kayak, observing the beautiful area from a different angle. The town is home to the historic Bude Sea Pool and The Castle Bude, both a must if you are in the area. 

For those who enjoy walking, the South West Coast Path can be easily access from Bude, head south in the direction of Crackington Haven or North towards Morwenstow. You’ll be blown away by the stunning scenery and breathtaking views along the coastline.

With so much on the doorstep, it’s the perfect destination for a holiday by the sea!

Beaches in Bude

Crooklets Beach

At low tide, a large expanse of golden sand is exposed, along with rocky outcrops which are great for rock pooling. The beach can be reached by a short walk over Summerleaze Down or down the hill from the town centre. Crooklets is very popular with surfers, but also perfect for families, with great facilities including a large car park, beach café, skate park, showers, and pubs close by. Dogs are welcome on this beach except between 15th May and 30 September, 10am to 6pm when a seasonal dog ban is in place.

Summerleaze Beach

Boasting the iconic Sea Pool, and only a five minute walk from the centre of Bude, Summerleaze Beach is Bude’s central hub of sand, surf and sun. It’s the first port of call for many visitors. Clean, safe and easy on the eye, Summerleaze Beach is a big hit with surfers, sun-bathers and families. However, it is the sheer variety of activities that mark Summerleaze as arguably one of the best beaches in Cornwall for outdoor pursuits and water sports. Dogs are welcome but must be on leads from 21st May to 30th September from 10am-6pm.

Widemouth Bay Beach

Stretching across one and a half miles of golden sands, Widemouth Bay is divided into two halves, the North beach and the South beach, separated by a natural barrier of rock known as Black Rock. As the tide retreats, amazing rock formations are exposed - perfect for rock-pooling!

Northcott Mouth Beach

Three miles North of Bude, is the small rocky beach Northcott Mouth, owmed by the National Trust. As the tide drops, the beach opens up to expansive sand with rock pools dotted all around - perfect for exploring. Dogs welcomed all year round. 

Sandymouth Beach

Four miles North of Bude is the National Trust beach, Sandymouth. Backed by sweeping cliffs, this large sandy beach is popular all year round, especially with dog owners as it welcomes dogs year round.

Below Deck is a lovely cosy place, a 2 minute walk to Sainsbury’s and afew minutes walk to beautiful Summerleaze Beach - a great central location. It is really comfortable for a family of four, with lovely living space, comfortable beds and everything we needed. We would definitely recommend it!

Below Deck is a great, well-equipped place to stay in Bude. Exceptionally convenient for beach, town, supermarket, everything!

Below Deck is a great place to stay in Bude. Close to the beach and shops, the accommodation is very well equipped and clean. Would highly recommend!

Great little apartment in perfect spot.

Lovely to receive wine and scones - a really nice touch,

Thanks for organising the weather too!

Below Decks is a charming flat in an excellent location. Very close to beach, town shops and the lovely amenities of Bude.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Below Deck. We loved the location and the facilities in the home were great. With two young children (2 and 5 years old) I was nervous about the height of the outside terrace and my children being safe but there’s an additional lovely courtyard which is very safe and on the same level as the kitchen and living room, so usable outside area for the kids. All in all a fab place to stay and we’d love to return one day.

Perfect location. Comfortable and relaxing feel. Excellent facilities. Family friendly. Booking again next year!!

We enjoyed our time at Below Deck. The property is in a great location close to beach, town and eateries and there are nice walks from the doorstep, so no need to use your car. The decking area is very nice on warm days and a real sun trap. The beds are comfortable too.

I was utterly blown away with the whole experience! Such a lovely, clean apartment. Compliments to the housekeeper ?? Our every single need was catered for. Fresh scones and a bottle of wine to arrive to. Blankets to use to sit on the terrace. Absolutely everything was there that we could ever possibly wish for! It was incredibly easy to request and pay for an extra night. Literally, nothing was too much trouble for Aspects. Such a lovely lovely company who were easy to get in touch with and made us feel so very welcome from beginning to end. Thankyou so much :)

Excellent & convenient location. We would stay again!

Lovely clean and cosy cottage. Fabulous location.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable and comfortable week in this well equipped and welcoming cottage.
