Bude has two golden sandy beaches, Summerleaze and Crooklets, and although between them there is plenty of room, if they do get a little too busy for your liking in the summer, there are plenty of other beaches just a short distance away.  And if the sea is too wild for your liking, Bude even has its own sea pool which gets filled up twice a day as the high tide comes in, and its quite safe too.  For those of you who like to take day trips from your base, Bude offers plenty of great options, with the likes of Hartland and Clovelly within reach along the North Devon coast, and Boscastle, Tintagel and Port Isaac in the other direction along the North Cornwall coast.
