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.

Had the place we'd stayed in before not have been booked up, then we would have never found here. If, or when we come back, this place is our first choice. We arrived after an 8 hr journey to a wonderfully presented property and to be greeted by Julie, the owner, and it was such a warm greeting, that you immediately felt that if you were to have a problem, it would be no hassle. However, we had no problems. The property was as beautiful inside as out, and on entering we found that we had immediate basics plus more. Such delicious scones, jam and clotted cream to buoy us back up after our journey. Delish! Oh and a bottle of beer, tasty. The property itself has a wonderful kitchen, come dining and seating area, with a spacious living room. We had already agreed with Julie about bringing an xbox (for films on Netflix - the kids enjoy a film before bed), wifi cover was great (you do go to places where you can be left waiting). All the rooms are of a really good size. One shower room with toilet downstairs, clean, modern and comfortable. One bathroom upstairs again clean, modern and comfortable. All 3 bedrooms were cosy and comfortable, the kids loved theirs and ours was great, every one fell in love with how good their mattresses were (could do with knowing where they are from so we can get them next time we change ours). Plenty of space to lie down in the garden to what shooting stars on the clear nights or play with the kids. Bedding and towels provided. Couldn't fault it. Great location for the coast and Bodmin Moor. Places to visit: Summerleaze for the waves and surfing, Crooklets if you don't have a dog but want the same experience. Tintagel - but if your scared of heights don't bother with the castle just go down for the trip and take a hot chocolate from the café (delish). Tamar Otter Sanctuary - nice afternoon out, very informative talks given about the otters and the chance to feed deer and walk around woodland with the deer and wallabies free around you. Rough Tor - vigorous walk, but wonderful views, take a picnic and enjoy eating it up at the Tor. Elements Restaurant - if you want a very nice meal with fantastic views.

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.
