Neetside Community Centre hires rooms for meetings, counselling, therapies,  seminars, community groups, workshops and training, for everyone to use and enjoy. We’re also a permanent home for 5 charities and social organisations, and over 50 different groups, societies, organisations and professionals hire us each year.



We are also a Community Hub providing a friendly welcoming space in collaboration with local organisations.

We have something on every day, from crafts and wellbeing sessions, to peer support groups and coffee mornings. To view the schedule of weekly community hub activities and to find out more click here.

Who we are

Located centrally in Bude, North Cornwall, Neetside Community Centre is a brief stroll from the beach, the Strand bus stop, the town itself and less than 5 minutes drive from the A39 Atlantic Highway. Refurbished in 1996, Neetside Community Centre retains much of its original character whilst offering 17 different rooms used by charities, organisations and professionals, largely from the care and wellbeing sectors. All rooms are serviced whether you require a permanent base in Bude or a space to use ‘as and when’.  A reception or ‘meet and greet’ service is offered to Hirers by the lovely, friendly team who are on hand to ensure your room is set up for you and everything runs smoothly for your meeting or event.

As well as our central location, we offer a variety of benefits, including different sized rooms, adjacent parking,  kitchen facilities, a lift, accessible toilets on both floors and WIFI access for Hirers. Our rooms can be hired by the hour, half day or full day.

Several organisations are based here permanently including: Setec Pluss Employment, Bude Area Toy Library, Outlook South West and The Women’s Centre Cornwall.
