Views around the site

General

  • Family-run site in Cornwall, a five-minute drive from Boscastle
  • Crackington, Trebarwith and Bude beaches within a 20-minute drive
  • A 50-minute drive to Padstow and an hour from the Eden Project

Watersports and walks, Thomas Hardy’s wife, ancient rock carvings and a museum of witchcraft... what haven’t they got at Wideacres Camping?

Everyone will have wide smiles on this hilltop site above Boscastle in Cornwall: it’s a spacious spot with room for everyone to stretch out and take in the views, the sea breezes and the sheer sense of glee that comes from being outdoors, up high, and beside the sea...

The proprietors have thought hard about things that matter to their visitors: hot showers and clean facilities in the spacious washrooms and washing-up area for pots and pans. You can park where you stay and frazzle your bangers alfresco on a barbecue, and, so you know where to find the kids when the dinner’s ready, there’s a great playground for them right on site.

The 16th-century harbour town of Boscastle is a five-minute drive away or a leisurely valley walk downhill (though bear in mind it’ll be uphill coming back). As well as being a very handsome spot, forever featuring in TV shows and films, it’s home to a decent spread of pubs and eateries and the fab Museum of Witchcraft and Magic.

Please note

Please note that the toilet/shower facilities are unisex.

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

The washing-up area is not in operation due to restrictions imposed by the coronavirus outbreak.

A cable measuring at least 12 metres is needed for the electric hook-ups.

    Long grass really needed cutting. Very exposed was impossible to stay with the winds, rain and hail.

From the manager...

Thank you for your review.
Sorry the grass was long on the pitch you chose. Plenty of cut pitches available with protection from weather without the view.
Your overall rating seems inappropriate as the weather is out of our control.

    Wideacres is a wonderful get away from it all site. A warm welcome from Linda and a choice of pitches. The facilities were good and site very spacious. We had a beautiful view of the sea and countryside. It was lovely to be joined by the cats and chickens and to see the cows looking at us over the fence.
    We enjoyed nice walks down to Boscastle along the river through the valley. The local farm shop was very well stocked. There were also plenty of places to explore by car.

    Quiet dog free site. Great views, particularly the sunsets, and enjoyable walk to Boscastle through the woods. Lovely to see the animals close by and very good public relations and welcome.

    Disliked: 

    Toilets need updating to match the facilities of the best sites. The grass was rather long around the camper van in wet autumn weather. Access ok and a good location.

Local attractions

Once Boscastle has cast its spell on you, you could conjour up a picnic and walk a short way on the famed South West Coast Path to Warren Point, for sandwiches with world-beating views. Or to immerse yourself in literary history, take the path from the site to the church at St Juliot, where Thomas Hardy met his future wife while doing a survey on the buildings.

If you’ve caught the bug for big walks, you can carry on along the South West Coast Path a few hundred miles to Poole; alternatively, join it in Boscastle and ramble the locality taking in waterfalls at St Nectan’s Glen (10 minutes’ drive away) and the plunging gorge and Bronze Age rock carvings of Rocky Valley before winding up at secluded Bossiney Cove (15 minutes). Another cracking clifftop option is to walk to Tintagel (15 minutes by car) to see the castle and the medieval chapel up on Glebe Cliff.

For beach days, it’s a 10-minute trip to Crackington, while Trebarwith and Bude with all its wind- and wave-powered watersports options are 20 minutes away. There’s more high-energy stuff on offer at Bideford’s Ultimate Activity Centre, an hour away, including stand-up paddleboarding, laser tag and assault courses.

Staying at Wideacres, you’re well situated for day trips to the top Cornwall spots: Padstow’s harbour and seafood scene is a 50-minute drive, it’s an hour to the Eden Project, and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are far from hard to find, an hour and 10 minutes away.

Must see

  • Tintagel Castle (5.0 miles)
  • Rock Beach (15.6 miles)
  • Cornwall's Crealy Great Adventure Park (18.6 miles)
