BUDE  Cornish: Porthbud


Once actually known as Bude Haven, Bude is a very popular family holiday destination, due to the fact there are great local facilities & plenty to do in picturesque north Cornwall.


This part of the coastline is also a preferred location for many surf dudes and there are a number of beaches nearby that are suitable for both beginner and the more advanced. Bude was also the #1 sunniest place in the UK during 2013 (and also for several dates in 2014!) Be sure to check the latest Bude weather forecasts and tide times my bewties.
