Why holiday in Bude? Here’s just a few reasons..

It will come as no surprise that here at Court Farm Holidays we are big advocates of visiting Bude- but we’re not alone! Bude has been named as the Best UK Coastal Resort for the past two years! So, why holiday in Bude?

For a little town Bude has an abundance of activities to offer, from romantic weekend breaks to fun filled family holidays- there is something for everyone to enjoy.

There have been a lot of changes taking place over the last few years and we think the town is going from strength to strength. Exciting new businesses such as La Bocca and The Beach (to name a few- there are a lot, lot more! You can view these on our Out and About page) have set up in the town and have brought a fresh and unique aspect to Bude for locals and tourists alike.

Despite these changes, however, the essence of Bude being a friendly coastal town have not changed. The charm that has always surrounded Bude has not been lost with development like many other places may have done in recent years. Also big believers in providing the warmest welcome to people that may not have visited before, Bude offers child friendly, dog friendly and access friendly walks, restaurants, cafes, beaches and activities.. the list goes on.

The spotlessly clean beaches and wild coastline remain just that, spotlessly clean and wild (also one of the many reasons surfers, swimmers, ramblers and thrill seekers return year upon year). Lesser known are the Golf Courses with spectacular views and the sea and course fishing.

Also, being located right at the most Northerly part of Cornwall means that you can avoid the extra hour or so that you would otherwise have to spend on the A30 when you arrive in Cornwall. This also means that staying around Bude puts you in a central position to explore either Devon or Cornwall (which can only be a good thing, two for the price of one!).

Within a 30 minute drive you can visit:

Tintagel

Boscastle

Launceston

Crackington Haven

Within an hours drive you can reach:

Hartland Peninsula (Devon)

Padstow

Wadebridge

Rock

Polzeath

Evie & Issey’s Adventures : Winter walks

These are my girls; Evie-Mae who is 2.5 and Issabelle who is 1.5 ….  The wind and rain does not deter us during the winter months, we just togg up and choose a sheltered walk … one of our favourites during the winter months, during the wet and windy weather being Stowe Woods, Nr Duckpool, a lovely woodland walk , 14 miles by car from Court Farm, Marhamchurch, or 9 miles from Northcott Farm.

This is an annual event, the 3rd picture below was taken there last year, when Issey was just 8 months old, Evie 20 months when she too preferred to be carried than walking too far! … good ol Daddy!  … now seeing them both this year walking and running hand in hand up the path in the woods makes all the effort of getting all the gear together, last minute nappy changes, dealing with temper tantrums as I couldn’t find Rabbie , Evie’s ‘cannot live without’ toy and actually making it out the door! …..worthwhile ..

The walk basically consisted of more re-tracing steps rather than actually getting anywhere but a) we were well out of the wind b) there were lots of muddy puddles to enjoy splashing around in and c) Job done, tired out, they slept right through last night!
