Make a holiday cottage in Bude your home away from home

Excellent surfing beaches and endless hours of sunshine make Bude a popular destination for surfers, families, and couples seeking the quintessential summer holiday. Bude is made up of a cluster of lovely villages full of rustic old-world charm with plenty of places to explore. Similar to other villa holiday destinations in North Cornwall, visitors to Bude can walk down to any number of golden beaches to enjoy surfing, sea kayaking, and other watersports, or simply enjoy the scenery.

HomeAway has a great selection of holiday cottages in Bude to choose from, ranging from cosy nooks to sprawling estates. Most of the homes have three, four, or five bedrooms and start at £380 per week. They all come fully furnished and are very well appointed. Many holiday cottages in Bude even offer added amenities like access to a swimming pool, tennis courts, and BBQ facilities.

Things to do

-Beaches: Summerleaze beach is just a five-minute walk from the centre of Bude. Flanked by a river on one side, the soft sand dunes of Summerleaze make it a popular beach for families. Three miles out of town, Northcott Mouth is another family-friendly spot with plenty of rock pools to explore. Dogs are also welcome here. One of the most popular beaches in the area is Widemouth Bay, which actually splits into two beaches and attracts sightseers as well as surfers.

-Watersports: Bude lies at the centre of several notable surfing beaches. Crooklets Beach and Widemouth Bay are both known for their consistent swells and are very close to many holiday homes in Bude. In addition to surfing, the beaches surrounding Bude are also well suited for kayaking and open canoeing. Holidaymakers without watersports experience can take lessons from one of any number of surf schools located in the area.

-Family attractions: Families with small children can enjoy safe leisure swimming at The Splash, located right in central Bude. The facilities include a large wave pool and waterslides. A short drive from Bude is the Milky Way Adventure Park. Great for a family day out, the park has rides, live shows, and a large play area for kids. Though it is a bit of a drive, it’s also possible to visit the Eden Project. The eco-friendly bio-domes here are Cornwall’s most visited attraction. If you want to be especially close to the Eden Project, HomeAway offers a selection of holiday homes in St. Austell.

-Golf: It isn’t just surfers who choose holiday cottages in Bude; golfers find their sport too. Bude and North Cornwall Golf Club lies on the outskirts of the village. The 18-hole course here was founded in 1891 and is open to visitors year-round. A little further away, the Ivyleaf Golf Course and Driving Range is an excellent place for a casual round of golf. It features a 9-hole parkland course with spectacular views of the coast and Cornish countryside.

It was fantastic! Great location for exploring North Cornwall, with more amenities in the village (Kilkhampton) than we expected (e.g. pubs, chip shop, pizza place, shops). With the glorious beaches in Bude only a short drive away, I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone. The cottage itself is cosy with modern facilities. We also appreciated the equipment for babies (such as highchair, travel cot, monitor) which we used, meaning that we didn't have to try and squeeze our own into the car. Thank you for a lovely stay - we will have very fond memories of our first family holiday.

Surprisingly spacious (we are a family with two adults and three teenagers) and such interesting decor, a real home from home experience. Lots of attention to detail and a lovely warm welcome from the owner Jules, the homemade scones were especially appreciated after our long journey down. The house has a fabulous view and is in a great location only 10 minutes drive into Bude where there is plenty to do and see, along with Lidl, Morrisons and Sainsburys for stocking up on food. We also ventured to the beach at Widemouth Bay a little further down the coast which was excellent for surfing&bodyboarding. All in all a fantastic holiday, we would highly recommend this house.
