Local Attractions

Of course, we need hardly mention the stunning selection of Cornish beaches within a few miles of Budds Barns, while for leisurely walking, the Bude Canal is hard to beat... and all topped off with some delicious Cornish ice cream!

We're happy to say that all our recommendations are a result of many years as visitors to, and then residents of, this fantastic part of Cornwall.
