Holidays in Bude

Carrying the title of Cornwall’s northern-most coastal town, Bude is perfectly placed to enjoy some of the north coast’s beautiful beaches and coastal walks.

Bude has so much to offer when it comes to things to do, including a fabulous town with a wide selection of independent shops, cafés, and restaurants – not to mention the wildest live music venue in Cornwall. In addition, visitors can meander along Bude Canal, stretch out on one of the many beaches, 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 accessed from Bude. You’ll be blown away by the stunning scenery and breathtaking views along the coastline – it’s also a great dog-friendly day out!

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

Beaches in Bude

Each with its own character and charm, the beaches in Bude are great whether you’re a swimmer, surfer or sand-snoozer.

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. Clean, safe, and easy on the eye, Summerleaze Beach is a big hit with surfers, sun-bathers, and families. However, it’s the sheer variety of activities that mark Summerleaze as arguably one of the best beaches in Cornwall for outdoor pursuits and watersports so definitely swing by if you love a hands-on holiday.

Crooklets Beach – At low tide, you’ll find a huge expanse of golden sand along with lots of rockpools to explore, making it very popular with families. There’s also decent surf and lots of amenities nearby including a beach café for those all-important ice creams and even a skate park.

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 rockpooling and getting back to nature!

Northcott Mouth Beach – Three miles North of Bude is the small rocky beach Northcott Mouth, which is owned by the National Trust. As the tide drops, the beach opens up to expansive sand with rockpools dotted all around - perfect for exploring with the dog all year round.

Things to do in Bude

Whether you love spending your time surrounded by the coast or countryside, there are plenty of exciting things to do with the whole family in tow.

Bude Castle

Ordinarily, a castle built on the sand might not seem like the best idea, but Bude Castle has really stood the test of time! Built around 1830, the castle was formally the home of Victorian inventor Sir Goldsworthy Gurney. It’s now a heritage centre with lots of fascinating exhibitions and art galleries, making this impressive feat of architecture an interesting day whatever the weather.

Bude Bike Hire

Why explore the beautiful surrounding area of Bude on four wheels when you can head out on two! There’s a great selection of bikes available for hire around Bude, which suit all ages and most abilities – saddle up!

Bude Sea Pool

Opened in 1930, this partially man-made tidal swimming pool in the rocks of Summerleaze beach provides a lovely, safe place to swim, perfect if you’re not ready to swim in the sea. The pool is open all year round, but of course, it depends on the tide and weather, so always check before heading out.

Surfing & Watersports

Based near Summerleaze beach, Bude Surfing Experience provides water sports equipment hire and watersports lessons so you can hit the waves running as you try your hand at surfing and stand-up paddleboarding!

Alternatively, Freewave Surf Academy at Widemouth Bay offers surfing, coasteering and SUP lessons, while Big Blue Surf School offers a range of surfing lessons, from complete beginners to advanced.


There is a range of lovely shops in Bude where you can stock up on all the usual holiday essentials. Head to Banford’s Bude, Jemima Rainbow, or Wildwood Cornwall for unique Cornish gifts, or you can stop by the Refill Shop for some environmentally friendly supplies. You’ll also find popular big names from FatFace to Ann’s Cottage, which houses all the top surfing brands.


With lots of stunning walks in and around Bude, walkers will be spoilt for choice when it comes to scenic routes. Head out onto the South West Coast path for dramatic coastal paths or head inland and explore the many walkways, which take you across crisscrossing fields, through woodland trails and even past Bude’s historic aqueduct.

Dining Out

After a day frolicking in the sea, we often find ourselves in need of a big feed, which is perfect when you’re surrounded by all the great places to eat in Bude. Head to Life’s A Beach for epic food and relaxed vibes or live out your dream of feasting on the water at The Barge! If you’re looking forward to a cosy evening in, then a visit to the Little Pig Farmshop will see you kitted out with everything you could possibly need for an evening of foodie delights.

The Lookout is a clean modern upside down house which is tastefully furnished and decorated. The views from the balcony’s are the reason we chose this property and it didn’t disappoint. Very comfortable! Marhamchurch is a great location-close to Bude but away from the hustle and bustle of the town!

We all loved this property, beautiful inside and out. There were 6 adults on our stay, we all had plenty of space, it worked great for us. A very relaxing location, overlooking all the gorgeous scenery. We would absolutely book with Aspect holidays again.

Superb upside-down modern house with extensive countryside views and so peaceful, yet only a short distance from Bude. Terrific TV in main room and plenty of space. Really enjoyed our stay in the aptly named Lookout.

The Lookout near Bude is an absolutely stunning and spacious house in a beautiful location and has been furnished and equipped to a high standard.

The owners have put a lot of thought into providing everything a family could possibly need for a holiday there. In addition to a stair gate, high chair, travel cot and standard cot there was a pushchair as well as a cupboard full of toys, which our grandchildren enjoyed playing with. And there were plenty of books and DVD’s for the family.

The 2 balconies are perfect with the smaller one being covered so it can be used in all weathers and we did have some extreme weather when we were there this Easter!. The larger balcony has plenty of comfortable seating and would be really lovely to sit out on if the weather was sunny.

The garden is a lovely size and very well kept and it has a large patio and covered area for outdoor dining.

We did use the very modern built in log burner a couple of chilly evenings and I can imagine it would be so cosy in the winter.

The owners very kindly left fresh flowers, a delicious homemade chocolate Easter cake, fresh eggs and milk for us on arrival which was much appreciated.

There’s plenty to do and see in the area especially for families. We loved breakfast at The Weir which has a great play park and The Bullers Arms is a lovely local pub to have a drink in and is only 5 minutes walk from The Lookout and although it doesn’t do food in-house Danny and Eva’s food van was parked up there twice in the week and we throughly enjoyed our delicious Easter Sunday roast from them which we were able to eat in The Bullers Arms whilst enjoying a drink.

I would definitely recommend a stay at The Lookout!
