Bude–Stratton (Cornish: Bud–Strasnedh) is a coastal civil parish with a town council in Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. According to the 2001 census it had a population of 9,242. In 2011 (including Bush and Lynstone) this population had increased to 9,934.

Away from the coast, much of the parish is rural in character but it also encompasses the sizeable urban areas of Bude and Stratton. Other settlements include Poughill (formerly a separate parish), Bush, Flexbury, Lynstone, Maer, Northcott, Thorne and Upton.

Bude–Stratton originated in 1900 as an urban district but was demoted in 1974 to a civil parish in the North Cornwall District. Since April 2009 the District has been abolished and replaced by Cornwall Council. Bude–Stratton is part of the North Cornwall parliamentary constituency, represented since 2015 by Scott Mann MP.

The arms of the Bude-Stratton urban district council were: Arg. two bars wavy Az. within a bordure Sa. bezantee on a chief Gu. a cross formee of the field between two clarions Or.


Bude–Stratton is twinned with Ergue-Gaberic (An Erge Vras) in Brittany, France.
