For many years Bude has been known as one of Cornwall’s most popular family seaside resorts, thanks to its large sandy beach, visitor accommodation and facilities. As a result the town has a brisk tourist trade, but the area known as Bude-Stratton also has a vibrant living and working community of over 18,000 that supports the development and growth of the local economy and makes use of the local shops, cafes, services and restaurants. Ongoing growth in the area includes the Binhamy Road housing development, which by 2023 will have added a further 420 houses. Bude-Stratton lies next to the ‘Atlantic Highway’ A39, which runs to Bideford (25 miles) and Barnstaple (34 miles) to the north, and down to Tintagel (19 miles) and Padstow (35 miles) to the south, and carries a regular bus service linking these coastal towns.

Situated adjacent to Crooklets Beach and Crooklets Beach car park the premises offers a unique trading location overlooking Bude Bay and its golden sands.

The beachside premises is of two storey construction with rendered elevations and feature exposed stonework pillars under a pitched tiled roof, with the cafe area extending to circa 1,182 sq.ft (110 sq.m) plus additional storage, circulation, welfare facilities and first floor office space.
