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.

Five star ?? ???????? Treatment all the way was my experience . Will detinately recommend

We had a brilliant stay at Number 5 Canalside. The apartment was very clean, comfortable and well equipped. The location was excellent - just a few steps to the canal for enjoying some paddleboarding and a 5 min walk to the beach and town centre.

We will definitely come back for another stay.

This is such a nice apartment with plenty of space inside and out. It's warm, comfortable, very well equipped and superbly located for the town, the beach and is only a few minutes from pubs and restaurants.

We are a family of 4 (with 2 girls of 11 and 14), we had plenty of space (and TV's!) and enough bathrooms to go around. We really enjoyed the apartment and its superb location. Great views too.

Highly recommended!

This apartment is beautifully furnished/equipped to a high standard and proved to be an ideal place to relax and chill out. The location next to the canal is tranquil but still close to the buzz of town and beach. The terrace was a bonus for relaxed evening drinks and meals.

Great apartment that had everything we needed, a real home from home. Spotlessly clean, fab outdoor space which we used loads as we had glorious weather. Great location and would love to stay again.

Superb accommodation in an ideal location for both Bude and also travelling to other parts of Cornwall

Excellent stay at this fantastic apartment, very centrally located with fantastic views across the canal. During busy months and especially with Covid I would suggest pre booking restaurants as many were booked up, we were left with little options and had to have takeaways a few nights which is not great on holiday.

Beautiful property and was simply perfect for our first family holiday! We are new parents and so it was a little daunting traveling so far with a baby however, when we arrived everything was simply perfect and stress free! The facilities were great and the kitchen well stocked so we were able to enjoy meals in and take in the view! I highly recommend for families!

Just returned from one week at this delightful property. Ideally situated right on the canal and minutes from the town and the beach. We were very lucky with the weather and the deck was perfect for breakfast in the sunshine. Enjoyed watching the activity on the canal - birdlife in abundance, fishermen, canoes, paddle boarders. Perfect setting to return to after busy days spent walking or on the beach. The apartment was very well equipped with all the necessary appliances. The apartment is ideal for a couple. Bude itself offers plenty of choice for eating out, just be sure to book ahead. It also offers great walks along the coastal path and the beach is lovely. We hope to return!
