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.

Holidaymakers seeking sunshine will want to visit Bude from June to September, when high temperatures exceed 15°C and rain is rare. The winter and spring months are chilly, but still pleasant enough to enjoy outdoor activities and golf. Rain is more common in the colder months, though it is rarely heavy.

                                                              Lovely, quaint cottage

                                                              4 of 5
                                                              We had all we needed and had enough room for 6 adults and a child, at Tea cosy cottage, all cutlery, plates, dishes, pans etc, were all there. The cottage itself is about a 5 minute drive to the centre of Bude, so is ideal, the village where it is located is very quiet, there is only one shop and one pub, which is old and very, very quiet, no music, TVs, etc so we only went once. However the location for the area around north Cornwall is great, but all need a bit of a drive to get to. We went into Bude most nights where's plenty to do and the beach is fantastic. In the village of Marehamchurch, there is a very, very old church which is worth a visit. We enjoyed our week in Tea cosy cottage and would recommend staying there to anyone who needs a base for this area. It was Good value for money, has a very friendly owner and is perfect for a large family.

                                                              Great Family Break

                                                              We have just returned from a family holiday in this beautiful cottage six adults and a two year old. It was perfect. The description of the cottage with amenities was exact. We found that we needed an extra towel and it was delivered promptly via a lovely smiley lady called Sarah. The owners were very helpful with any queries that we had prior to our departure. The recommendations for eating out were spot on namely Tommy Jacks. The property was beautifully equipped to a high standard we couldn't fault it. The location of the cottage is just ideal. A few minutes walk from the beach plus a lovely view from the sitting window of the sea. We had very hot weather so didn't venture too far from the beach but ideally located for sight seeing and activities. We just chilled out. We would all r e commend this lovely cottage.

                                                              Family Wedding Stay

                                                              5 of 5
                                                              What a wonderful place to stay. My family and I needed a large place to stay for my youngest son's wedding. Sunnymead was the perfect place for us. My 3 children plus grandson stayed for the week with the groom staying the night before the wedding allowing him to stay with his siblings for the night. Sunnymeade is so spacious that we all were able to get ready on the day of the wedding without getting under each others feet. The size of the house also gave us the opportunity to entertain the Brides family during the week with added bonus of there being a games room, everyone challenged each other either to table tennis, snooker or darts it was great fun. My grandson was totally safe to run around and cycle his bike in the grounds. A delightful stay at a wonderful house. I would recommend anyone wanting to stay in Bude with a large family to stay here. Sunnymeade is within walking distance to the town, supermarkets and best of all beach and cliff top walks.
