Our Top Ten Days Out in Bude

, ,
Bude in Cornwall, location of Wooda Farm Holidays

Here at Wooda Farm Holiday Park, your home away from home in beautiful Bude, we love to spend time galavanting on our grounds with the amazing activities and fantastic facilities we have onsite! However, with so much to see and do in the surrounding area, we love a bit of exploration around Bude and the surrounding areas too, so we thought we’d put together a list of our top ten days out in Bude and beyond to help you make the most of your holiday when you come and stay with us on this beautiful stretch of the North Cornish Coast.

Days Out in Bude:

1. Bude Sea Pool

One of Bude’s most iconic landmarks, the Sea Pool is a unique outdoor swimming pool that sits right on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. The pool is open to the public all year round and provides a safe and fun way to swim in the sea, whatever the weather or your swimming ability! Visit the Bude Sea Pool website here>

2. The South West Coast Path

The South West Coast Path is a 630-mile-long walking trail that runs all the way from Minehead in Somerset to Poole in Dorset, passing through some of the UK’s most stunning coastal scenery along the way. The stretch of the path that runs along the Bude coastline is particularly beautiful and just a two-mile hike from our doors at Wooda Farm, and is a must-do for walkers of all abilities. It is also the perfect way to exercise your dogs if you’ve got your four-legged friends with you during your stay with us. Find out more about the South West Coast Path here>

3. The Bude Canal

Originally built to transport sand from the beach to local farms for use as fertiliser, the Bude Canal is now a tranquil waterway that offers a unique perspective on the local landscape. Visitors can take a leisurely stroll along the towpath, hire a rowing boat, or even take a guided tour to learn about the canal’s fascinating history. Read more about Bude Canal here>

Whether you’re a complete beginner or a seasoned pro, there’s nothing quite like catching a wave with the backdrop of Bude’s coastline. Find out more about Surf Lessons in Bude here>

For a rainy day activity, why not head to the Bude Castle Heritage Centre? Once the home of eminent inventor, creator of the Bude Light (once used to illuminate the halls of Westminster) and oft-overlooked steam pioneer Sir Goldsworthy Gurney, this beachside museum is well worth a wander and a wonder on a day that lends itself to the indoors!
