Splash heated outdoor pool

General

  • Family breaks or peaceful couples' getaways on the north Cornish coast
  • Half a mile from Crooklets beach and less than a mile from Summerleaze
  • Kids' club, pool and evening entertainment on site

There are many things one could big up about Bude Holiday Resort in Cornwall. First, the location: within a mile of two of the best beaches in the country and close to the National Trust clifftop walks of the Cornish coast. (There's even a private footpath from the park leading cliffwards. And dogs are allowed on site – yes, those last two statements are connected...)

Second, third, fourth and fifth, all the stuff to do around the grounds, which is pretty much all you need for a family hol: heated outdoor pool open from May until September, a playground, amusement arcade and loads of leisure facilities including show, bingo and discos run nightly in the Atlantic Bar by the amicable entertainment team. (The accommodation price includes access to all park facilities including kids' club, pool and evening entertainment.)

Also on site are centrally-heated amenities including free hot showers, launderette, dishwashing facilities and an Elsan point.

Finally, does your ideal holiday include a kids' club? Surfing Sami and pals will keep your sprogs busy in the evening, with the kids' club running alongside the grownup entertainment in the Atlantic Bar. Is that the sound of parents around the land erupting into cheers...?

Excellent stay in a clean and very comfy caravan. 03/03/2019

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Amanda W. Confirmed

  • Elite Coastal 2 bedroom static caravan (pet friendly)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The caravan was spotless, very well equipped and very comfortable. There was a dog bed, bowl and poo bags for our pooch. Washing up pack.
    The camp site was a very short walk from the coastal path and about 15 mins from BUDE.
    It was very quiet but it was out of season.

    Disliked: 

    No instructions for working the heating. It was on high and it was the hottest weekend this year so far so we had to keep turning the boiler off.
    No hanging hooks in the bathroom for robes etc, always handy.

From the manager...

Thank you for your review.

It is great to see you were happy with the caravan and that it had everything you needed for your stay with us. The coastal path is a wonderful way to see the beaches and spectacular views that Bude has to offer whilst providing a great walk for your dog - we are pleased to see you thought so too.

I will ensure your comments regarding hooks are passed onto the housekeeping and maintenance teams to see if this is something we can look to improve for our guests so thank you for bringing this to our attention. We do hope you reported the boiler issue to reception, they are always more than happy to help guests out and would have sent someone straight over to resolve any issues you were experiencing.

We are delighted to see you would visit again and hope to see you back here soon.

    We liked where the park was situated, was a lovely coastal walk down to Bude. the park it self was very clean.

    Disliked: 

    Was really disappointed that the amusement arcade, restaurant, bar ,and kids club especially as it was half term was closed, (its does state the swimming pool would be closed only on the booking site only) we only learnt this in the small print in the email once we had paid, so found the park itself very quiet and my daughter got very bored. Saying that we would love to give this place another chance in the summer.

From the manager...

Dear leighan_s

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review.

We are pleased to hear you enjoyed the coastal walk from the park, a lot of our guests give such great feedback commenting on the beautiful views overlooking the beaches. We see you walked it into town, next time why not go the other direction across to Northcott where you can enjoy one of Margarets famous cream teas!

Sorry to hear of your disappointment regarding the facilities on site, at present our facilities are all closed from the end of October until Easter however this is something we are looking to change in the future. We do hope this has not put you off and would love to welcome you and your family back here again once everything is completely up and running.

We'd definitely go again, especially at this time of year. 12/11/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Elizabeth O. Confirmed

  • Fully-serviced grass and gravel touring pitch (super)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    We loved the location. It was a lovely easy walk into Bude with stunning scenery. As it is November, we found the site to be lovely and quiet. The shower block was new, clean and warm. Easy access for our motorhome and conveniently situated close to the Atlantic Highway.

    Disliked: 

    We had a very sloping pitch, which caused drainage issues with our motorhome. As there seemed to be other flatter pitches free, we would have liked to have been issued one of those. We can imagine it is very busy in Summer, but great for a Winter stay.

From the manager...

Dear Guest

Thank you for taking the time to leave us your review.

We are so pleased to see you loved the location, we feel so fortunate to be based in a beautiful part of the countryside that gives our guests easy access to beautiful views as well as just a short walk to the towns main amenities. We are glad you found our shower facilities to be clean and to a high standard during your stay, our team work extremely hard to maintain these and we be delighted to see this in your review.

We are sorry you found your pitch to be on a slope, if you had popped to reception we would have been happy to look at our availability and see if there was another pitch more suitable for you to move to. We hope this has not put you off returning in the near future.

    Lovely site well situated near the coast line and the town it’s self. The pod we stayed in was a decent size for the four of us and was nice an warm. It would be handy to have a few hooks up some where to hang towels/coats up. The toilet block and washing area were kept clean and tidy.The out door pool was pretty chilly but we had a great time playing in it. The kids favourite bit of the day was the family bingo which my son won twice! And over all the entertainment team did a comically good job.

    Having recycling bins available would of been great.

Directions


From Kilkhampton
Head south-west on the A39 toward Bude, turn right onto Stratton Road, head south-west on Stratton Road/​A3072 and take a slight right onto Bencoolen Road.
At the roundabout, take the second exit onto The Strand, and turn right toward Belle Vue, turn left onto Belle Vue, turn left onto Crooklets Road then turn right towards Maer Down Road.
Take the first left onto Maer Down Road. Maer Down Road turns slightly right and becomes Maer Lane and our site is on your left.

Local attractions

Miles upon miles of cracking beaches for sandcastle building and surfing are all around Bude: Crooklets and Summerleaze are closest within a mile of the park, but others like Widemouth Bay, Northcott Mouth, Sandymouth Bay and Duckpool are all musts as well. Surfboard and wetsuit hire is in Bude, along with four surf schools.

All is seriously scenic on land too: appreciate it at its best with coast and countryside walks along the South West Coast Path or the miles of public footpaths for dog and human walks, or by a ramble around Bude Marshes or one of the several nature reserves of north Cornwall.

Also easy to find around Bude are three golf clubs, five riding schools (a trot on the beach?), two leisure centres and activity centres for clay pigeon shooting, climbing, kayaking and archery. Or travel a little further afield for Cornwall's most topping attractions like the Eden Project near St Austell, the Blue Reef Aquarium in Newquay and the Crealy Great Amusement Park at Wadebridge.

Over the border in north Devon, have a day trip to the rather fab RHS Rosemoor Gardens in Great Torrington, and another two trips taking the kids to the Milky Way theme park and award-winning The Big Sheep, both at Bideford.

Must see

  • Tintagel Castle (15.2 miles)
  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (19.2 miles)
  • Rock Beach (26.2 miles)

National Trust

  • Tintagel Old Post Office (15.3 miles)
