Flying visit - September, 2008.
We stayed in Bude for just 2 nights but wished that we could have stayed longer. The beach is great for surfing, the town has enough shops to make it worthwhile wandering round and there are some great walks along the southwest coastpath in either direction. There are not too many restaurants but enough to give a reasonable choice for a few nights plus there are several pubs that do meals.
We enjoyed trips out to Crackington Haven, Boscastle & Tintagel. The coast road is an interesting drive with steep hills and great views.
