General

  • Family breaks or peaceful couples' getaways on the north Cornish coast
  • Half a mile from Crooklets beach and less than a mile from Summerleaze
  • Kids' club, pool and evening entertainment on site

There are many things one could big up about Bude Holiday Resort in Cornwall. First, the location: within a mile of two of the best beaches in the country and close to the National Trust clifftop walks of the Cornish coast. (There's even a private footpath from the park leading cliffwards. And dogs are allowed on site – yes, those last two statements are connected.)

Second, third, fourth and fifth, all the stuff to do on site, which is pretty much all you need for a family hol: heated outdoor pool open from May until September, a playground, amusement arcade and loads of leisure facilities including show, bingo and discos run nightly in the Atlantic Bar by the amicable entertainment team. (The accommodation price includes access to all park facilities including kids' club, pool and evening entertainment.)

Also on site are centrally-heated amenities (newly refurbished in 2017) including free hot showers, launderette, dishwashing facilities and an Elsan point.

Finally, does your ideal holiday include a kids' club? Surfing Sami and pals will keep your sprogs busy in the evening, with the kids' club running alongside the grownup entertainment in the Atlantic Bar. Is that the sound of parents around the land erupting into cheers...?

Please note

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 26/05 and 31/08 (subject to weather conditions).

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

The site caters for families (immediate members) and couples only - bookings from all other forms of groups are not accepted.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

Bookings must not be for more than 28 consecutive nights.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Single-sex bookings of 3 or more people (couples and immediate family members excepted) are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

Group bookings of 3 or more adults are not permitted (couples and immediate family members excepted).

As of August 2017, the park is undergoing an upgrade and some elements of improvements are ongoing, so please expect limited development work on site and an uneven access road until that point.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review of your recent stay in one of our glamping pods.

I will pass your comments onto our housekeeping team as they were very hard to ensure the park is kept spotless so your comments will be very well received.

We hope you will stay with us again if you go glamping in the future.

Good Afternoon,

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review.

We are pleased to hear you were happy with the site and managed to make use of our swimming pool. The feedback we are receiving this year from the pool is brilliant and we have been very lucky with the weather so far this year too.

Our recycling points are by the launderette and we are in the process of getting a second recycling point by the bin bay in the touring area.

We hope to see you and your family here at Bude again in the future.

What a lovely review - thank you!

We are so so pleased to see you would return and will be booking your next stay with us soon, don't forget returning guests who book direct with the park can receive 10% off their stay.

It is lovely to read how you enjoyed the park and the kids loved the outdoor swimming pool.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Thank you for your review.

We are so pleased to read you enjoyed your stay.

We are very lucky to be in such a beautiful area within Bude, the coastal path is on our door step and a stones throw away from the beach, both of which have some truly amazing views - I see you thought the same too.

If you are ever visiting Bude again, we really hope you will stay with us again.

Local attractions

Miles upon miles of cracking beaches for sandcastle-building and surfing are all around Bude: Crooklets and Summerleaze are closest within a mile of the park, but others like Widemouth Bay, Northcott Mouth, Sandymouth Bay and Duckpool are all musts as well. Surfboard and wetsuit hire is in Bude, along with four surf schools.

All is seriously scenic on land too: appreciate it at its best with coast and countryside walks along the South West Coast Path or the miles of public footpaths for dog and human walks, or by a ramble around Bude Marshes or one of the several nature reserves of north Cornwall.

Also easy to find around Bude are three golf clubs, five riding schools (a trot on the beach?), two leisure centres and activity centres for clay pigeon shooting, climbing, kayaking and archery.

Or travel a little further afield for Cornwall's most topping attractions like the Eden Project near St Austell, the Blue Reef Aquarium in Newquay and the Crealy Great Amusement Park at Wadebridge.

Over the border in north Devon, have a day trip to the rather fab RHS Rosemoor Gardens in Great Torrington, and another two trips taking the kids to the Milky Way theme park and award-winning The Big Sheep, both at Bideford.

Must see

  • Tintagel Castle (15.2 miles)
  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (19.2 miles)
  • Rock Beach (26.2 miles)

National Trust

  • Tintagel Old Post Office (15.3 miles)
