If you're looking for a small, family-orientated camping site, you've found just that. In the quiet of the countryside, about five minutes from the seaside town of Bude, we are set well away from the roads, down a country lane just beside the village of Grimscott.
We have flat, grass pitches with views of the countryside, woods and two fishing ponds: guests can fish here or simply wander through the woods and lanes around the area. The campsite is small, basic, relaxed and friendly, and we can offer breakfasts for guests if required. Fishing at our ponds is available for all our guests at no extra cost.
Two large patio areas beside the house provide seating and dining areas and guests can use this area for their barbecues. We also have a tennis court (used for tennis, football and badminton) and children's play areas.
Toilets, shower and washing facilities are located within the house, with additional facilities being provided when busy. Well-behaved dogs are welcome on site as they will enjoy taking their owners out for walks in the lovely countryside you'll find in the area.

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.

Take the Holsworthy Road until Red Post. At the Red Post crossroads turn left and follow the road for a mile to the village of Grimscott. On entering the village at the 30mph sign, turn right on the corner down the track. Follow for about a quarter of a mile. Campers should very carefully follow the small tarmac drive to the right down the country lane, past the fishing pond and through the gate. Caravans and motorhomes are advised to follow the track to the left, around the bend and down the track for a further quarter of a mile. The entrance can be found on the right-hand side.

On reaching Kilkhampton go through past the church and take the Launceston Road to the left. Follow for about 3.5 miles until you reach Grimscott. Go through Grimscott and on leaving the village turn left at the sharp corner and follow the signs down the farm track.
Please keep your speed down on the lane as this is used by farm tractors, walkers and our neighbours.
There are two fishing ponds beside the camping area where guests can fish for a small additional charge. We are happy to teach you how to fish if you have never tried (you never know, you could get hooked!).
Having moved to Bude, north Cornwall, not too long ago, we were surprised to learn that the area has so much to offer. Previously we’d driven through Bude, looked at the sea, and then scuttled off to what we thought then were more interesting places. However, having more time to spend in the locality has opened our eyes to the variety around the area that has something to offer everyone.
So what does Bude have to offer? Well firstly, Bude is a seaside town. It’s quite small but it has a really lovely charm and welcoming atmosphere. Yes, there are large supermarkets in the area, but they haven’t spoiled what Bude has to offer and you will find a good number of really great smaller independent shops where you can search for bargains or souvenirs to take home. They offer everything from beach goods and clothing, books, jewellery, chemist items, food and knick-knacks, to crystals and fossils. Plus, as you would expect to find, there are a great number of cafés and bars, including a nightclub.
Bude is blessed with several lovely lifeguard-patrolled beaches including Summerleaze, with its sea pool, and Crooklets where the family can enjoy some time together splashing in the waves, building sandcastles or fishing in the rock pools. Surfing clubs and watersports activities are available for those who wish to learn how to surf or go coasteering.
Widemouth Bay is a large open bay with a sand and pebble beach with restaurant facilities. Sandymouth Bay is on the other side of Bude with a large sandy beach (when the tide is out), and offers the opportunity to go fossil hunting or be amazed by the rock and cliff formations, plus the sight of Hartland Point's many satellite dishes.
In terms of entertainment, The Parkhouse Centre often has events going on such as craft fairs, community events and ‘mind, body and soul’ events. Just up from here is the castle where you can take a stroll around the ramparts. Bude Canal is a must-visit location where you can walk along the many miles of waterway and is a place where disabled visitors can also enjoy travelling along some of the tracks beside the canal. Part of the canal is given over to the rowing and paddle boats and part to the anglers, with the rest being a nature reserve and wildlife enthusiast’s paradise.
For the kids, as well as the beaches, there is a wave pool, ten-pin bowling alley and lots of other attractions nearby to keep them entertained. Within easy driving distance is the Milky Way Adventure Park, Atlantic Village, the Alpaca Centre and many more attractions.
Bude is really central with a large number of attractions within easy driving distance. Steam and diesel railway enthusiasts can visit the Launceston and Bodmin steam railways. Boscastle and Tintagel are just down the coast, providing fantastic scenery, beaches and cliff walks; at Tintagel you can visit the site of King Arthur’s castle.
Venture up the coast you can visit the Hartland Peninsula, or the pretty and unusual village of Clovelly, which literally clings to the side of the cliffs, and is steeped in a history of shipwrecks and piracy. Holsworthy offers the opportunity to visit the local market and auctions or indulge in a little shopping.
Travelling a little further inland you can visit the wild and natural Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor. Both are beautiful and offer plenty for the traveller to explore. Bodmin Moor is a remote, heather-covered upland granite moorland, grazed by the moorland ponies and cattle.
Dartmoor National Park stretches out for 954 square kilometres and is crisscrossed by small open country roads with open grazing for the many Dartmoor ponies, cattle and sheep. There are many intriguing legends around Dartmoor and if you visit, be sure to take a notepad and ink stamp with you so that you can go ‘letterboxing’, as you will find many hidden letterboxes across the tors and locations on Dartmoor.
Your stay would not be complete without sampling the famous cream teas that both Cornwall and Devon offer (scones, jam, cream and tea - the difference comes from whether you place the cream or the jam on the scone first).
