The title of this blog post isn’t quite accurate. Bude is very close to the border between Devon and Cornwall, definitely, but I don’t think you could really claim it lies directly on it. Unfortunately, I’m a slave to alliteration, so you’ll have to forgive me if you’d like to read more about one of the most popular beaches for people staying in Cornish cottages.

Bude beach, because of its location, gets plenty of people visiting it from both Cornwall and Devon, not that this really makes any difference should you decide to visit, it’s just an interesting fact. Of course, there must be some reason that so many people to get drawn in, and that’s because it’s a beautifully sandy, gradually sloping beach perfect for those wanting to splash in the sea, play in the sand or surf. The minor gradient means waves can carry somebody on a surf or body board for ages, and the abundance of sand should have obvious uses.

Bude itself is also part of the attraction. Many people staying in holiday cottages in Cornwall have discovered that a day spent on the beach is perfectly rounded out by stopping at one of Bude’s many excellent fish and chip shops for supper, or by eating in one of the restaurants that the town boasts, many serving fresh sea food.

Regardless of where you’re coming from, you’ll find that spending a day in Bude is a great way to treat the whole family during your holiday.
