Separated by just 30 miles, the two locations appear to have completely different climates
The weather for most of Cornwall is often pretty predictable – cloudy, mizzly and grey. Or so people would think.
But there are two places in the Duchy which seem to boast consistent weather results – no matter what the county-wide forecast is.
One lucky location actually boasts all the golden glory, yet another less than an hours drive away is often plagued by unruly rain.
But why does one get all the sunshine? Why does one get so wet? And what do people in both locations make of it all?
For those living in Bude, the town gets to take solace in the fact it is statistically the hottest place in the whole of Cornwall – boasting what has been dubbed its very own ‘micro-climate’.
Bodmin Moor on the other hand – just thirty miles away – gets the crown for being the rainiest place in all of Cornwall.
Formerly known as Bude Haven, Bude is the most northern town in Cornwall and has long been one of the most popular seaside resorts in the county.
Now it is clear to see why.
