Hit the Atlantic for a surf lesson or improve your rowing skills by taking out a canoe or kayak on the historic Bude Canal.

As the name suggests, The Beach at Bude is located right on the shore in north-east Cornwall's popular resort town of Bude.
By car: just off the A39 to Bath, the hotel is an hour and 20 minutes from Exeter or Plymouth and two hours from Taunton.
By train: Bude doesn't have great train links. It's best to jump off at Exeter St Davids and transfer to the hotel by bus or car (1 hour 30 mins).
By plane: Newquay Airport is an hour's drive from the hotel and Exeter Airport 1 hour 20 mins.
