If dogs could vote for the canine-friendliest town in Cornwall, Bude would have an excellent chance of winning paws down. Starting with dog friendly accommodation in Bude itself, it also features several doggie beaches and many attractions where dogs are welcome. Several pubs and restaurants even offer a welcome treat when you visit them with your best friend.
What to Do with your Dog in Bude
Walking, swimming and playing with other dogs or going for interesting excursions with their owners, in Bude dogs can do both. Many beaches allow dogs to run around freely, at least part of the day, and visitor attractions like the Lobster Hatchery allow well behaved dogs to enter.
Visit this picturesque fishing village where deliveries are made by sledge and donkeys roam freely. Nearly every house here is a listed building and the lovely Clovelly Court Garden invites you and your four-legged friend for a stroll.
This popular town beach allows dogs all year round, but during the season they have to be on a leash from 10am-6pm, but before and after those times they can frolic around off leash as much as they want.
Northcott Mouth Beach
More secluded than the above, this fine sandy beach welcomes dogs, without restrictions, all year round. A tea garden is open and lifeguards are on duty during the summer. You find this calm beach three miles north of Bude.
Half an hour drive from Bude, this exhibition tells the story of legendary King Arthur with gripping stories. Learn about the historical context of this most famous of all Cornish legends.
Broomhill Sculpture Gardens
Less than one hour's drive from Bude, Broomhill combines traditional English gardening with stunning modern art. Wander around one of the largest collections of contemporary sculptures with your dog in toe.
