Bude in Cornwall

bude beachBude... a beautiful blend of ancient landscapes and modern boutique shops, of old Cornish culture and new-age jazz festivals ...an exhilarating excursion... and a hushed haven,

"The long, wave and the thundering shores of Bude"
Tennysons lyric, perfectly symbolises the surging surf-zone that Bude is. Its two magnificent beaches – Crooklets and Summerleaze – translate to three-miles of soft pale sands, backed by an interesting sand-dune system and encrusted with delightful rock-pools... The powerful Atlantic rushes to meet the beautiful beaches of Bude...the waves come crashing on the gentle sands... Grab your surf-board and get set for an exciting ride at Bude! And if you ever want a break from surfing, the open-air swimming pools in Bude are ideal for a splash. Or you could just stretch out on the fine sand and bask in the golden warmth of the sun...

Bude Canal
Bude Canal is one of the few safe harbours in the treacherous coast-line of north Cornwall. It has been trading lime-stone and coal for centuries. Enjoy the lovely walk to the Bude Canal; the unspoilt countryside is full of vivid flowers peeing through the rocks... happy butterflies fluttering around... and lush green carpeting... After the fizz and charge of the beach, Bude Canal is like a soft and gentle relaxant. You can lose yourself in the enveloping tranquillity and calm. And even indulge in a spot of quiet fishing...
