- Secluded and spacious site in a spectacular countryside setting
- Four miles from Widemouth Bay and 20 minutes’ drive from Bude beach
- Logs, kindling, postcards and pottery available to buy at the park
Tucked away in the Cornish countryside four miles from Widemouth Bay, Bakesdown Farm is a peaceful place for stays of the old-school sort. There’s no noisy bar or evening entertainment here – it’s just the crackle of the firepit and sizzle of the barbecue right outside your temporary home.
That’s not to say this spacious and secluded site has no handy amenities, though: a little caravan has ice creams for sale, as well as books and toys for the kids to borrow, and there's a charging point to keep your phone juiced up – you'll likely need that GPS when you’re out wandering in the splendid surrounds. A fridge-freezer is in the farmyard area as well, so food sourced from the supermarket in Bude (just over 15 minutes’ drive) will stay fresh for longer.
Once your mobile’s charged up, get your map app on the go and start saving some of the top things to do in the local area: there’s a beach at Bude for surfing lessons (with hire available if you’re already an expert at riding the waves) and strolls along the South West Coast Path are within 20 minutes’ drive.
Made some memories while dawdling around these destinations? Take some of the handsome hand-thrown pottery for sale at Bakesdown Farm home with you as souvenirs; logs and kindling are available to buy for the campfire too, plus ice creams for warmer days (just make sure to bring some cash for the honesty box).
Bakesdown Farm also has a toilet, shower and washbasin facilities.
Open from 02/04/2021 to 13/09/2021

Once you’ve maxed out all the coastal walks within a 20-minute drive of Bakesdown Farm have a gentler lope along some of the local canals instead – Marhamchurch’s towpath is a 10-minute drive away, while the one at Bude (with cafés and bike hire nearby as well) is 15 minutes away.
If traipsing about the latter’s town centre whets your appetite for more urban experiences in Cornwall, head to the county’s former capital of Launceston, 25 minutes’ drive inland in the Tamar Valley. Wander up to the hilltop castle or make tracks towards the narrow-gauge steam railway; independent shops are also here if you fancy rifling the racks.
Alternatively, head back to Bude beach for walks along the golden sweep of sand or pull out your paddleboard and glide along the water at the lido-like sea pool scenically set among the rocks.
