General

  • North Cornish site with views to Devon's Lundy Island
  • Five miles from Bude
  • Immaculate amenities including free hot showers

Coo, cop a look at these Cornish coast views… Cornish Coasts Caravan and Camping Park is, not surprisingly, on the Cornish coast (the north side), but from this four-acre site you can also see across to Devon’s Lundy Island and you’re only about half an hour away from that county’s coast too (yes, the north side as well). Beaches? Less than five miles away at the beaut town of Bude.

Small and friendly Cornish Coasts is one of the oldest established parks in the area, so the owners know what’s what about making campers tick and ensuring they return year after year. You might also reckon that site owners who say they take pride in the cleanliness of their toilets and showers will tick all the right boxes too, as will new and improved features on site: the amenities block has power showers which provide lashings of free hot water all day.

The site added a café and a farm shop in 2017 which is open from 8am to 8pm daily. As well as local produce, it sells
essentials, camping accessories and booze; there’s also an ice pack freezing service and Calor and camping gas for sale. Other (very clean) amenities include a launderette, baby changing facilities, covered dishwashing area and a chemical waste disposal point. Hairdryers are available too, so you can look your best in those Cornish Coast photos.

    On arrival we were met by Karen who was very friendly and extremely helpful. She handed us the key for our week long stay in a caravan. The caravan was beautifully clean and tidy. All we were requested to bring were towels, as everything else was supplied. Even games and books and loads of information on places to visit during our stay, together with Freeview television. It was a lovely comfortable caravan, with wonderful views of Widemouth Bay.
    After long days visiting different parts of Cornwall, we returned to the site to have tea in the restaraunt, cooked by Steve, the resident chef. Would recommend the Fish and Chips also the Cottage Pie (delicious). Wi-Fi was also available in the restaurant. Next to the restaraunt was a fully stocked shop, where the foods were all locally sourced. Gifts were also on offer to buy. Karen, and the rest of the staff really put themselves out to make sure we had a super holiday. Thank you so much.

    Our pitch was quite slopey, which was tricky at times. The shower/toilet facilities were clean but looked a bit dated compared to the reception/cafe area

Local attractions

Stick to north Cornwall’s coast, hop across the border to north Devon’s, or explore the rest of Cornwall and famous attractions like the Eden Project: either way, this part of the world has more than enough to see and do for all ages and tastes.

You could spend your entire hol on the sands and in the sea if you were so inclined: the long bay and miles of sand of Widemouth Bay are three miles away from Cornish Coasts and is the place to go for surfing, rockpooling or just stretching out on its golden sand.

Beautiful Bude is just five miles away for traditional seaside capers, and other sandy beaches including Summerleaze, Sandymouth, Crackington Haven and Crooklets are all within ten to 15 minutes’ drive. If you’re new to the surf, this area has a good handful of surf schools to show you the ropes; if you prefer to stay on land, the South West Coast Path runs alongside Poundstock, the village nearest Cornish Coasts.

Going along the coast towards Newquay, the medieval fishing village of Boscastle eight miles from Cornish coasts is a popular tourist spot – it’s probably best known for its handsome harbour and National Trust visitor centre in its old ‘pilchard palace’, but the Museum of Witchcraft should also be pointed out here too, highly recommended as one of the UK’s quirkiest. The TV series Doc Martin was filmed along this part of the coast and towards Port Isaac.

Also the stuff of legends, Tintagel and its King Arthur associations are three miles along the coast from Boscastle: the town is now one of the most visited tourist attractions in the UK, but it’s worth braving the crowds to climb up to Tintagel Castle high on the coast for tales of Arthur and some seriously stunning views across the water (you should be able to see Lundy Island from here too).

Further along the north Cornwall coast, you’ll come to the Camel Trail at Wadebridge within 20 miles (hire adults’ and kids’ bikes here), which runs along to Padstow. Newquay, home of surf and zoo, is about 37 miles from Cornish Coasts, and from here you can pootle along further to Portreath, St Ives and the Lizard Peninsula.

If you’d like to stick closer to base, attractions and activities abound near the campsite and Bude: a cinema within walking distance, six levels of play at Harlequinn’s Leisure, cooing at the inhabitants of the otter sanctuary at Tamar Lakes, walking along the coast, o’er moor or through forest, or trying your luck landing those famed Cornish fish from sea or shore.

Going into Devon, take the kids to new heights at the Milky Way Adventure Park in Bideford; the town is also where you can catch the ferry to lovely Lundy Island.
