Bude is a lovely little Cornish seaside town flanked by two sandy beaches and dissected by a deep blue canal which flows to the water’s edge. A small castle, now a Tourist Information Centre presides over the beach from a secluded position and surfers regularly take advantage of the clean surf.

The town has tennis courts, golf sites, parks and play areas and water sports to learn as well as holiday cottages and beach huts for hire. Bude has a wonderful selection of shops and cafes and is just a few minutes’ stroll from the beach.
