- Peaceful back-to-basics site on a working farm in north Cornwall
- 10 minutes' drive from the beaches and watersports of Bude
- Historic pub a 20-minute stroll or short drive away
So, you want a peaceful rural retreat, surrounded by open farmland, do you? But you want it to have an ancient pub within walking distance? And you’d like to be only about a 10-minute drive from the seaside?
Then you’ll be wanting a word with Farmer Phil, a cheery chap who’s clearly got an eye for location. Farmer Phil’s Campsite is about as country as they come, being a 75-acre real-life farm with real-life cows and sheep, and surrounded by quiet farmland.
The excellent Red Post Inn is a 20-minute stroll away (in the same place it’s been since the 9th century, history buffs) for home-cooked food and lovely local ales. If you prefer to go the DIY dinner route, farm shops and a supermarket are about a 10-minute drive away, and you’re welcome to light up your barbie.
And those beaches? Well, they’re the fine specimens in and around Bude, around 10 minutes’ drive away. There’s surfing, golf, watersports and walking trails galore in and around town, and the local area is equally well supplied with family-friendly days out.
Being a lover of natural country charms, Farmer Phil hasn’t overly developed his site, installing just the essentials in his amenities area: toilet and shower facilities, plus a washing-up area.

Let’s start with those beaches: the coastline around Bude is a bit of a stunner, with lots of great sandy swathes to visit. Many are dog-friendly, and several are fab for surfing – learn the technique at one of the surf schools around Summerleaze beach or catch the waves at Widemouth Bay or Northcott Mouth.
That’s not it for aquatic activity, though – Bude’s also a great spot for canoeing, windsurfing and coasteering, and Tamar Lakes is 20 minutes away for carp fishing and various watersports activities and lessons. Sticking to dry land, there’s a golf course in Bude and a riding centre around a 20-minute drive away for woodland trots and beachy canters.
Nipper-friendly attractions within half an hour or so include the the Milky Way Adventure Park and the Tamar Otter and Wildlife Centre.
