Bude number 12 in best seaside resorts for families

The Day Out With the Kids website has chosen its best seaside resorts and Bude comes in at number 12, receiving a silver grading along with Padstow (number 18).

Bournemouth topped the poll.



The website says:

To “fish” out the best “plaices” to go, we asked families about everything from sea and sunshine to ice cream and crabbing.

Then we counted the following in each town:
– Family attractions
– Beaches (Blue Flag and otherwise) in a 10-mile radius
– Fish and chip shops
– Instagram hashtags and check-ins
– The cost of an ice cream
– The average temperature and rainy days in August

We took the factors that mattered to families most and boosted their rating, giving each town an overall score (thus creating a unique and clever “algorithm”!


I must admit I’ve been to the Gold Award resorts. To me, Bude is definitely number 1. No algorithm needed. A good bit of fun though.
