In a fine position above Summerleaze beach, Susie and Will Daniel’s contemporary hotel has a terrace with ‘lovely sea views’. In warm weather, light meals and cocktails (like the signature Summerleaze Sunrise) can be taken here while watching the surfers ride the waves below.

In a fine position above the beach with huge Atlantic views, a fabulous base with beautiful rooms from which to explore this magical stretch of coast. It’s just what Bude has been crying out for and it stands in a row of smart Victorian villas with views that roll down to the beach and out to sea… Beach addicts have Bude – the ‘Bondi of Britain’; hikers have the coastal path for walks along the ocean… Brilliant.

The Beach can claim to be one of the hottest places on the north Cornwall coast. The old Victorian Building has kept its character, with rooms of different shapes and sizes, but a modern feel has been added by thoughtful, contemporary redecoration.
