All of our luxurious holiday rentals at Court Farm Holidays are located in stunning North Cornwall and are situated just a stones throw from the perfectly picturesque and brilliantly beautiful town of Bude.
According to some local historians, Bude has been a settlement since the bronze age but was only recorded as a dwelling since the middle ages. The population of this seaside town began to explode in the mid 19th century when the Bude Canal was built to transport the mineral rich sand of this stretch of the coastline to farms and distributors across the county. This project brought workers and their families to build the canal and work on the boats.
Bude became particularly prominent with visitors in the Victorian age when it became a popular destination for “sea-bathing” and the newly emerging seaside holiday. The prudish Victorians even segregated the two main beaches in Bude, Crooklets for the ladies and Summerleaze for the Gentlemen, so everyone could enjoy a swim without anyone seeing too much ankle! To this day Bude still attracts visitors every summer without fail, with its lovely beaches, classy selection of food and drink, and the stunning surrounding scenery.
At Court Farm we love our local town and all that it has to offer and we have got some great local tips for a day out in Bude in our back pockets, to share with you our lovely guests.
