General

  • Family-run park a mile from the A39 and Devon border
  • 10 minutes' drive from Bude for beaches, surfing, golf and riding
  • Restaurant and bar for hot meals, drinks and cream teas

Jam first, pile the cream on top, then scoff the lot – that’s the Cornish way to prepare your scone. It’s useful to have this info to hand if you’re staying at The Red Post Inn, as they serve up a fine traditional Cornish cream tea here, and you’ll no doubt be wanting to do it justice.

They’ve had a wee bit of practice at such things, too, as there’s been an in at these crossroads, four miles from Bude, since the 9th century (with the mission statement ‘to feed and water the weary travellers passing this way’ – sounds promising for those arriving after a long drive). Not in the mood for a sweet treat? No problem – the restaurant also sells hot meals (eat in or take away) and has a fully licensed bar.

In between feeds, there’s much to do around the locale – take a wander around the country lanes, perhaps, fish or birdwatch at Tamar Lakes, or head over to Bude for beaches, surfing, golf and horse riding. Being only five minutes from the A39, it’s also pretty straightforward to get to a whole heap of attractions across Cornwall and neighbouring Devon (Padstow and Dartmoor National Park are both around an hour away, for starters).

Back at base, all is kept straightforward but comfortable – spacious pitches, separate men’s and ladies’ toilets and showers, a chemical waste disposal point, a launderette, and a playground to keep the nippers suitably amused.

Please note

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

    Very close to bude, surf was very good! Facilities were spotless, girlfriend is normally very picky with shower and toilet facilities but this one was even up to her liking! The bar/restaurant has great food and a wide selection of drinks, very reasonably priced. Site is quiet and well kept. The WiFi is very good, paid £4 for 3 days and worked whenever we used it, came in handy to search for things to do in the area and when we had a quiet night watching films. All staff that we met were very welcoming and happy to help in any way, the restaurant workers deserve great praise. Lastly the price to stay on the site was very well priced.

  • Liked: 

    Friendly and helpful manager; on-pitch fresh water; easy emptying of grey water from motorhome, easy to use, rain protected chemical disposal point.

    Other facilities not used but appeared good

    Accessible location

    Very handy dining if required.

    Disliked: 

    Was on a sideways sloping pitch and as moving the motorhome each day both early and late in the day, chose to avoid the hassle of using levelling ramps, which did not give ideal living conditions. There are normally pitches with little or no slope or only fore and aft.

    We arrived just after the 9pm due to traffic on the way down but rang ahead to let them know and they was ok with it.
    The staff was friendly and the food in the Inn was delicious and not stingy on the portion sizes either so we rolled ourselves back to the tent with our food babies.
    All the facilities was always nice and clean so no problems there either.

Local attractions

From this handily located spot, a mile from the A39 and the Devon border, you’re well placed for all manner of visits and activities. If you don’t fancy the drive, there are a couple of bus stops just outside the inn for journeys to Bude, Barnstaple, Exeter and Plymouth.

Staying in Cornwall, it’ll take you half an hour or so to drive to the Arthurian Tintagel Castle, 45 minutes to get to the pretty fishing village of Port Isaac, and an hour or so to feast on fresh seafood in the restaurants of Padstow or wander in the biomes of the Eden Project. Those with tiddlers in tow might like to cross into Devon for a day at the Big Sheep farm and amusement park.

Closer to home is Bude, four miles away – a hub for surfers (and wannabe surfers), where visitors can also ride horses through the waves, play a game of golf with smashing sea views or relax on the fine sandy beach.

Must see

  • Tintagel Castle (16.6 miles)
  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (16.7 miles)
  • Rock Beach (27.5 miles)

National Trust

  • Lawrence House (13.3 miles)
  • Tintagel Old Post Office (16.6 miles)
