- Hidden in Cornish countryside but only 3.5 miles from Widemouth Bay
- Campfires and barbecues encouraged
- Logs, kindling and pottery available to buy
Hidden away in the Cornish countryside but only three and a half miles from Widemouth Bay, Bakesdown Farm is a peaceful place for old-school stays. No noisy bars, evening entertainment or internet café here, just the roar of your campfire or sizzle of the barbie right by your farm home, and heaps of space for all guests to have maximum room and privacy.
The toilet, shower and wash basin are sited in the farmyard about 20 metres away, and a drinking water tap is in the camping field. Logs, kindling and postcards are available to buy at all times, with an honesty box for payment. Hand-thrown (and handsome) pottery is also made on the farm: guests are welcome to go and have a browse for souvenirs.
Fridges are provided in the farmyard area for the use of all guests.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

From Bude or A39:
Turn right onto the A39 (towards Wadebridge). Take the first left off the A39, signed Marhamchurch. Follow this road into the village of Marhamchurch until you reach the T-junction. Turn left, and follow this road out of the village and on for about 2 miles. On the brow of a hill is a left turn for 'Titson'. Take this left and follow road for another 1/2 mile. In the hamlet of Titson take the right turn immediately before the converted chapel . Follow this lane for 1/2 mile. You climb a hill, take a sharp righthand bend, and there is Lower Bakesdown Farm. Drive into the yard on your left, and the farm signs will direct you to your holiday space.
From Launceston or A30:
Take the Pennygillam exit off the A30 into Launceston. At the end of the slip road turn left and follow this road through Launceston. At the roundabout at the bottom of the hill, go straight on (2nd exit) up a very steep road past the school. Follow this road (B3254) through St Stephens and on for about 10 miles. You enter the village Whitstone (note your closest shop to thefarm is here, on the right as you drive through the village). As you leave the village, take the left turn signposted 'Whitstone Head', just after the speed limit signs. Follow this lane for 2 miles. The farmyard is on your right, with a long cream-coloured stable building alongside, signed Lower Bakesdown Farm. Drive into the yard, and the farm signs will direct you to your holiday space.
Just 3.5 miles away guests will find beaches, the coastal path, surf hire and surf lessons.
