The judges were clearly impressed by the sheer variety of attractions to suit young and old. A massive range of sporting activities and surf schools complements the stunning beaches and natural attractions. Bude has also overseen a massive increase in the range of top-class eateries - everything from cream teas to award-winning seafood; from cosy pubs to trendy bistros. Events such as Bude for Food, Bude Folk Festival and Bude Jazz secured the top slot for our friendly local town ensuring it is a vibrant area for tourists and locals alike.
This award bears testimony to the ongoing investment in the town, and the supreme effort of the local population who make Bude such a wonderful place to visit. Well done everyone!
Now, I'm off to celebrate with a cream tea!
