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.

Weather in Bude

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.

Beautifully appointed it made an excellent base for us touring Cornwall and North Devon coast. Weather was bleak for the time of the year but even that didn't deter us from getting around Would love to return at some point in the future. Thank you.
