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 on site, 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 (newly refurbished in 2017) including free hot showers, launderette, dishwashing facilities, dog wash area, Elsan point and wetsuit drying facilities.

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...?

Great place, clean caravans, friendly people, good base for visit out 17/09/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom phillip w. Confirmed

  • Atlantic 2 bedroom static caravan (no pets)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    First thing, the new way in avoided all the major potholes from last year which was good. The caravan was nice and tidy upon arrival. Very child friendly with park and water park, lots of enterainment in the club was for kids (didn't go in to actually see) but i did like the child friendly environment, was nice to see. The beach is maybe a mile away which again was cool, and local shopping. It appears they are expanding (popular place) but was very quiet days and nights. Friendly and polite staff, neighbours were nice as well. In all even tho we didn't get ideal weather we had a great time. Almost forgot, loads of birds and even geese flying around ( I love birds )

    Disliked: 

    we had a small leak in the shower room, was mentioned but they didn't get to us before we left. Was a minor inconvience so was no big deal.

From the manager...

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

Although the lane leading to the park has not yet been completely re-surfaced we agree, filling in the pot holes and changing the entrance has made a massive difference to guests visiting the park here. We are pleased to hear you were happy with the caravan you stayed in whilst visiting us. We pride ourselves on being a family park so your feedback regarding how child friendly it is here is just brilliant to read - Thank you!

We are lucky to be in such a lovely location with the beaches and the town just a very short walk away.

I am sorry to hear the shower leak was not dealt with during your stay, our maintenance team are normally so quick to deal with any reports and I can only appologise this was not the case for yourselves.

We very much hope you will visit us for another holiday again next year.

    Caravan was comfortable and clean. All the staff where helpful, friendly and always had a smile on their faces. The entertainment was very enjoyable. We are hoping to return next year

    Disliked: 

    I can't find anything to dislike Unless your a person that wants their wifi while on Holiday. there is wifi available but only in the Bar and entertainment area. You wont get wifi in your caravan. Great if you want your kids to get back to being children and not stuck to a computer or tablet

From the manager...

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

We are so pleased to see you would visit us again and found your holiday home to be clean and comfortable. All of our friendly staff on site work hard to ensure guests have enjoyable and memorable holidays, so its great to hear reports back of you finding this to be the case.

We are looking at ways of offering guests the opportunity of purchasing wifi so they can use it in their caravans but at present we are just in discussions with BT and nothing is set in stone but hopefully will be something we can offer in the future.

We look forward to seeing you again next year.

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

We are delighted to hear you enjoyed all aspects of your recent stay with us, and that you would recommend us to friends.

Unfortunately we did experience a problem for a couple of days with our boiler that heats the swimming pool meaning it was much colder than we would have liked. This issue has now been rectified.

We do hope to see you back here again next year.

    Good location and facilities onsite; family friendly and great for young children. Easy walking distance to Bude within 10 minutes so no need to take the car. Caravan had good facilities, clean and tidy, very relaxing.

    Disliked: 

    Mix up on website booking where I had booked a dog friendly caravan but didn't get one using the Pitch-up website. Caused a bit of distress at the start of our holiday.

From the manager...

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

It's brilliant to hear you liked the caravan you stayed in during your stay with us and enjoyed the facilities we have here on site. We are very lucky to be in such a great location with access to the beaches and town on our doorstep.

We appologise for the error regarding a pet friendly caravan, we have taken the issue up with pitchup, but are pleased to hear the situation was rectified.

We do hope you will stay with us again in the future.

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

We are sad to see you would not recommend us to others, i do hope you were able to speak to someone on reception during your stay to address any issues that may have occurred leaving you to feel like you would not want to visit us again.

We will be getting more pod's next year, I do hope you would re-consider visiting us again and give the site a chance to redeem itself.

    Site is currently being over - hauled with a lot of building works being carried out. To say they have a few teething problems is an understatement.....

From the manager...

Dear Guest,

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

We are very lucky to be in such a position where we have walking access to the beaches and town of Bude with beautiful views along the way.

The site is under going some development work however the work currently underway should not have impacted upon your stay with us as all facilities are fully accessible including the club house/beer garden, heated swimming pool and children's play park.

We do hope you will visit us again once the development is complete.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your lovely review.

We are so pleased to hear how happy you were with your holiday home, i will pass these comments onto the relevant departments. Our Elite Plus Shorelines were new for this year and we are getting a lot of positive feedback from guests who have stayed in these caravans.

Sorry you did not enjoy the evening entertainment, we try to provide entertainment to cover all tastes and can only appologise there was nothing to suit your taste.

Thank you again for your review and we hope to see you again.

Nice clean campsite. Good value but only for short stays. 18/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Sarah T. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Good that you get to pitch anywhere. Toilet block was modern and clean. Children's entertainment in the evening is good. Nice outdoor pool but only in good weather. Good location. Not far from beach and coastal paths.

    Disliked: 

    Amusements were small and very limited. Member of staff in there both nights cery rude and grumpy looking. Bar area very small and very dated diner to eat. Need more variety of activities in evening. Outdoor pool needs to be heated if no indoor pool offered as was far too cold for us all to stay in for long. However they are going through refurbishments so hopefully a lot of these issues will be addressed.

From the manager...

Dear Guest,

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

We're very glad to hear that you liked our brand new toilet and shower block, we're very happy with how it's turned out and are looking forward to eventually having another built in the current camping field!

Our outdoor pool has also just been completely renovated and is always a minimum temperature of 24 degrees so we're very shocked to find that you found it cold. We're glad you liked the pool however, we are proud of how it looks now, especially with it's new water feature.

We're very sorry to hear that the staff member in the arcade was not overly friendly - the arcade is actually a franchise and so this employee is not one of our own. We will definitely pass this feedback onto the owner as we do not expect this from any staff member on site!

We hope that you will visit us again in the future.

From Kilkhampton

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)
  • Lawrence House (16.3 miles)

Cycle routes
