Visit Bude on the north of Cornwall for a holiday that has something for everyone - from romantic retreats for couples, action filled family holidays, or a haven for the nature or geology enthusiast. Bude has twice been voted for the Best UK Coastal Resort in the British Travel Awards, making it can excellent choice for a holiday destination.

As it sits on the Devon border, Bude is the first place you reach when arriving in this beautiful county. With activities and attractions accessible across both counties, why not sample a cream tea made both the Devon and Cornish way and decide which you prefer?

Bude is large enough to provide a good range of facilities with a choice of accommodation, shops, restaurants and sports facilities, yet it is small enough to remain its Cornish charm. The nightlife is also quiet and relaxed. The area has a laid back charm that is traditional in a cherished way. There are many independently owned shops and restaurants for you to explore, with family run businesses creating a strong ethos in the town. There is something for everyone including a diverse range of indoor and outdoor activities - from sports centres, soft play areas and stately homes to fishing, cycling, golf, surfing and other water sports. Bude has plenty to suit all ages, interests or backgrounds.

There are many beautiful sandy beaches to choose from with surfing hotspots, vintage style beach huts and dog friendly choices. There are also spectacular views and unique natural attractions to be found - the Bude sea pool for example is cut into the rock at Summerleaze Beach providing a more relaxed dip or child friendly swim when the sea is rougher.

There is also access to the South West Coast Path, which offers some excellent walking routes, whether you enjoy a short stroll to a stunning picnic spot or prefer a more challenging hike. Bude has some unique rock formations which can provide something of a spectacle while exploring the area - take a Geological tour or simply find Bude's unique rock formations for yourself.

Reasons to visit Bude

Vast expanses of clean, golden, sandy beaches, often backed by rugged cliffs

Fantastic surfing and watersports

Brilliant walking - explore the coast and beaches and geology

Great for activities - cycling; horse-riding; rock-climbing; abseiling; fishing; golfing and more

Several nature reserves in and around the area

Things to do in Bude

Hire a beach hut for the day at Summerleaze Beach. Set on wooden decking right on the beach and painted in pretty pastel shades, the spacious huts can be your beachside retreat for the day. Settle down in a deck chair, and relax. Book from the tourist information office

Visit the Bude Heritage Centre at the Castle by the canal. There’s an exhibition about Bude’s fascinating geology and history and free entry art gallery. Have a bite to eat in the café where you’ll get a taste of local food plus a great view out over the sea

Hire a rowing boat or pedalo and spend an hour messing about on the Bude canal. Prices are around £8 per hour and you can row or pedal a fair way up the canal. Available at the Wharf

The Breakwater on Summerleaze Beach and the right side of Crooklets Beach are great places for crabbing. The tourist information centre sells the equipment you’ll need along to catch the critters and also have reference books to help identify the wildlife you’ll find on the beach

Take the easy going 10 mile circular Planekeepers Path walk following the route of the canal from Bude to the inclined plane at Hobbacott.

About Mrs Caroline Congdon

Hi, My name is Caroline I am married to James Congdon and we have two young boys and together with James's parents and the help of our children we run a 200 acre beef and sheep farm and three holiday cottages, situated on the North coast of Cornwall. We both have a great passion for the countryside along with our family farm and love sharing it all with our visitors.

For the last ten years we have been renovating barns and designing houses with our visitors in mind! We have built and furnished them to a high standard keeping them contemporary and modern with homely touches to make a great holiday!

We know how important your holiday is, we go on holiday too (occasionally!), and we all worry about what to expect, that's why we work hard to make sure our properties are well cared for and most importantly you have a great stay.

We are never far away and have built up a great relationship with many of our lovely visitors who return year after year,

James and I have very high standards and we hope this reflex in our cottages, we want every body to be happy and enjoy there holiday and enjoy this beautiful part of the world we live in.

Mrs Caroline Congdon purchased this barn in 1949

Why Mrs Caroline Congdon chose Week St. Mary

Kitsham Farm has been in the Congdon Family for many generations and is a working beef and sheep farm. Grace Congdon James's grandmother who is still alive today at the age of 103 bought Pegsdon cottage along with its two barns back in 1963. The original cottage was then let for around 40 years. It wasn't until 2004 that James and I decided to move into the cottage and renovate the two barn ourselves into luxury self catering holiday homes. This has enabled us to follow our dream of providing great value, stylish holiday cottages in Cornwall without compromising on quality of location or interior design.

Hunters Lodge is a gorgeous two bedroom barn with a great kitchen for cooking and entertaining, a lovely light lounge to get together with the family and a luxury bathroom for pampering. All on one floor its great for young and old.

We have now been running Kitsham Holidays successfully for ten years and we now have lots of visitors who return back to us every year.

Over the last two year we have been busy building another brand new house 'The Lookout' in the village of Marhamchurch. What was a 1940's bungalow was demolished and we built a beautiful spacious, modern and contemporary house with living area upstairs and three bedrooms down stairs sleeping six. The views from the house are just amazing even we have stayed there and did not want to come home!! We are constantly updating our properties as we love keeping them fresh and up to date.

Check out our reviews on Trip Advisor!

What makes this barn unique

We think Kitsham Holidays is a wonderful spot and most of our guests agree. Spacious, idyllic and utterly tranquil. It's also a great location for exploring Cornwall - just a short drive to the many great beaches. Our nearest beach Widmmouth Bay has just won a blue flag award for cleanliness and water quality which is brilliant news for us. We are a short distance from the A39 the main road through Cornwall so easy access to most attractions.

Our properties are five-star with Egyptian cotton linens, underfloor heating, oak beams and floorboards, wood burner, Wi/Fi plus top-spec German appliances and bathroom fittings provide every comfort and convenience.

Although Cornwall is thought of as a Summer vacation, our wood burning stove and underfloor heating makes it a cosy Winter retreat. During the shoulder season the barn can be booked for long weekends - ideal for walks on deserted beaches and sampling local pubs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Have just returned from our stay in the Hayloft. The accommodation was beautiful, spotlessly clean and had everything you could possibly need and more. We particularly loved the beautiful bathrooms and the garden. It was so peaceful and the area and places to visit very dog friendly, particularly Boscastle and Tintagel. We had a fantastic time and are hoping to make a repeat visit.
