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.

    This is the most delightful, small, peaceful campsite and is a must for those who enjoy beautiful scenery, peace and quite, wonderful sunsets and good walking.

    The hosts are so friendly and helpful and you are surrounded by their lovely farm and animals.

    The facilities are very clean and nice and there is a super indoor kitchen for campers to use which has a fridge, freezer, microwave etc and plenty of information on local places of interest to visit.

    There is a very nice play area for those with a young family and there is more being built for older children at this time.

    For us it was the perfect place to stay and we will definitely be staying there again.

    Thank you very much to our lovely hosts.

Probably the nicest campsite we've been to in the last 15 years 10/07/2019

    Wildacres was a fantastic campsite for us. The location was outstanding - it has beautiful views of the coastline with associated awesome sunsets (see photo). The owners were personable and friendly (they couldn't have been nicer). The campsite was also one of the few that is genuinely quiet in terms of intrusive noise. You'd hear the occasional car during the day but at night all you hear is the occasional baaing of the sheep in the field next door :-).

    At other campsites we've been to we've always dreaded the weekends as the party crowd tend to descend with loud radios and festival attitude. Here everyone was respectful of the surroundings and the weekends were much like the week days.

    The toilet/shower block was perfect for our needs but if the field was fully booked out I'd imagine it could get quite congested as there is only the one sink for washing up and only 2 showers. But having said that the block was cleaned every night and the showers themselves were brilliant (probably better than our one at home). The block also has a fridge and freezer which was great for keeping milk cool (no having to lug loads of freezer packs back and forth to the tent every day).
    There is no shop on site so you'll have to plan ahead for provisions but Boscastle is only a 5 minute drive away so it shouldn't cause you too many problems.

    We have 2 young girls (8 and 10) and, in the 10 days we were there, we found more to do than we could actually fit in - so this is a bonus as well.

    We tend to travel around so it's unlikely we'll be back next year but if we did decide to revisit the area we wouldn't hesitate to book again. I'm missing it already :-(.

    Lovely, small campsite. Quiet (other than the occasional baa from the neighbouring sheep) and had beautiful views. Had nice, clean facilities (three toilets and two showers) and a warm kitchen area with a sink, microwave, fridge and freezer.

    We were greeted by Linda on arrival and directed to the camping field. Our caravan was pitched and hooked up with minimal effort. Though we were pretty much self contained in our van, the site has everything you could need for a successful stay i either a caravan, motorhome or tent. Fresh water, chemical waste point, a facilities hut with pot wash area, toilets, and showers. fridge, freezer and even a microwave. The site is in the grounds of a working farm and the are sheep, cows and chickens in the surrounding fields. The Chickens were extremely friendly and paid us a daily visit to see how we were getting on. The coastal/sea views from the site were wonderful with nearby Boscastle clearly visible and only a 2 mile walk from the site. We loved this site and the next time we are in the area we will definitely be booking in at Wideacres again.

    A lot of loose grass mowings left on the main site tend to get into everything - would help to pull a rake behind the ride-on mower to get these away, if such a device exists.

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.
