There’s nothing tamar your enjoyment of the panoramic vista at this site near the pleasant seaside resort of Bude.

The pitches face out on the larger of the two lakes on site, Upper Tamar, which has a sandy beach, a good children’s playground, and a café offering light meals, cream teas and some rather moreish Cornish ice cream. There’s also a gift shop selling crafts and souvenirs. The campsite has communal style showers, washing-up area, chemical disposal point and recycling facilities.

Guests at Tamar Lakes Campsite can make the most of the views using foot, cycle, wind or paddle power. There are miles of paths and cycle tracks hugging the shoreline of both lakes, including some suitable for buggies and wheelchairs. The trails continue into the woods and countryside beyond for those who are feeling energetic, or there are easier walks and good picnic spots to be found around Lower Tamar, which is a haven for wild birds (both lakes have a hide).

Pedalos, Canadian canoes and dinghies are for hire, as well as windsurfers and surf skis - although you can also bring your own boats and equipment too. In holiday season, the watersports centre offers a range of taster sessions, lessons and activity programmes for adults and children.

Anglers will no doubt have some fishy tales to tell after a day out netting some of the bream, roach, rudd and huge carp stashed in the two lakes.
