Find the best Bude walks. The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional resource for all walkers, hikers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to leader led walks to any really arduous walks within the The Chapel area.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops

Mountain Warehouse Bude

12 Belle Vue, Bude EX23 8JL, UK – 01288 352494

Good range of value active wear. The staff at this branch were very friendly and helpful. Great for emergency shorts and beach shoes for my son, on our w/e trip away and unexpected beach day! Plus I got a couple of nice t-shirts on the BOGOF offer! Highly recommend.

great experience competitive prices

Wroes Outdoors

27A Belle Vue, Bude EX23 8JN, UK – 01288 353789

Good quality items throughout store. Menswear is excellent quality and though not cheapest sale items are worth looking out for.

Lovely shop with lots of choice. Clothing, bedding, outdoor wear, children's clothes and kitchen section plus nice cafe with beautiful sea view. Recently had a revamp which has greatly improved the srock

Bude Surfing Experience

Summerleaze Cres, Bude EX23 8HJ, UK – 07779 117746

Had a great morning, (2 adults and 4 kids). Great teaching for all, with all of us managing to stand up by the end of the lesson. A fantastic time. Would definitely recommend.

We had three family surfing lessons with Bude Surfing Experience and would highly recommended. Scott looked after our 7 and 8 year old girls and made sure they had lots of fun, even in the big seas, whilst making great progress in catching waves. At the sane time helping two old dog parents learn some new tricks with patient feedback and supportive advice.

WalkingWorld.jpg
Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the UK. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks.

Crucially you can also find walks France, Spain, Norway, Portugal and Australia!

Camping and Caravaning

Cerenety Eco Camp Site

Treeways, Lynstone Lane, Bude EX23 0LR, UK – 07429 016962

Wonderful place to all nature lovers. There is a few animals on site (including two Alpacas), plants, vegetables (you can have some of them!). Fires are allowed (or even encouraged). You can use your own wood or buy for £4 a bag. You also can rent Dutch Oven for a few pounds and make some delicious food over the fire!! If you not bothered about luxury (and long hot showers - hot water is provided only by solar panels) it the place to go.

Lovely campsite offering something a bit different with a real eco/earth-centric focus. The facilities provide everything you would need and are clean, but don’t expect modern luxury - the 3x toilets are sawdust composting loos (very clean but no water involved!) and the two showers again are clean but not very warm as they are solar powered. All part of the experience! There is a magical veg patch and green house, pond and lots of animals. The owners are brilliant - helpful and flexible. All in all a great ‘low impact’ camping experience.

Willow Valley Camping Park

Bush, Bude EX23 9LB, UK – 01288 353104

Lovely small campsite. Picturesque. Standard facilities. Friendly owner. Would stop here again.

Fantastic Campsite, Brilliant owners, location and facilities. We will hopefully return year after year.

Upper Lynstone Caravan Park

Upper Lynstone Caravan Park, Bude EX23 0LP, UK – 01288 352017

This is the second time we've stayed at this camp site. There has been some good improvements. A new shower and toilet block and the pitches have been sectioned by low wooden fencing. Some pitches are now hard standing, the down side is, there is only one obvious place you can collect water from.

This is our second visit here and found the site to have been upgraded since last time. The main area has electric hook-up and has had the addition of low fences between the pitches. Some levelling of the pitches has also been carried out. From the far end of row S you can even see the sea, but sadly the nearest fresh water is close to the (free) shower block. Waste bins are emptied every day and where possible the grass was cut too. Friendly and helpful staff. Walking distance into Bude, but it's uphill on the way back.

Looking for dog friendly cottages around Bude? The 'Dog Friendly Cottages' website looks like any other self-catering accommodation website but every single one should be dog friendly! This saves worrying and going through all the small print. However you you may need to check with the owner where the dog is expected to sleep and the what size of dog you can have!
Dog People find this is such a great website. If you have dogs who go on holiday with you just enter EX23 8LQ and everything from dog friendly Bed and Breakfasts and Hotels to dog friendly walks and beaches come up. The Dog People site covers Bed & Breakfast, Holiday Parks, Hotels, Self Catering, Pubs & Food, Days Out. Enjoy!
'Walks with Buggies' is a must for walking parents with young children, babies or even grannies and grandpas! If you would like to walk around The Chapel or Cornwall just select your nearest town, length of walk and type of walk. You will not only be able to download detailed OS maps free of charge but you can read reviews of walks and their ratings - and add your own afterwards! Enjoy

Snake bites

Most snake bites in the UK are not serious. But it's important to get all snake bites checked as soon as possible.

Call 999 or go to A&E immediately if:

  • you think you, or someone else, has been bitten by a snake

Find your nearest A&E

Information:

If you're not in the UK when you are bitten by a snake, contact the emergency medical services in the country you're in.

Get foreign travel advice on GOV.UK

What to do while you're waiting for help

Do

  • stay calm, most snake bites in the UK are not serious and can be treated

  • keep the part of your body that was bitten as still as you can

  • lie in the recovery position if you can

  • take paracetamol for any pain

  • try to remember the colour and pattern of the snake to tell the doctor

  • take off any jewellery and loosen clothes near the bite, in case it swells

Don’t

  • do not go near the snake, or try to catch or kill it

  • do not try to suck or cut the poison (venom) out of the bite

  • do not tie anything tightly round the part of the body where the bite is

  • do not take aspirin or ibuprofen, as they can make bleeding worse

What happens at the hospital

You will usually need to stay in hospital for at least 24 hours if you have been bitten by a snake.

The bite will be cleaned and bandaged. You may be given an injection to help protect you from tetanus.

If you were bitten by a poisonous (venomous) snake you will be treated with a medicine to fight the venom. This is given through a thin tube into a vein, called a drip.

Types of UK snake

Only 3 types of snake are found in the wild in the UK.

The adder is the only venomous snake, but you should get all snake bites checked as soon as possible.

Telling the doctors the colour and pattern of the snake that bit you could help them treat it.
