It’s time to get wild on Cornwall’s north coast. Family-friendly Trelay View Campsite is a simple pop-up sort of place where you can have a real outdoor adventure with the kids – and it’s one with spectacular views over woodland and valleys right to the Atlantic Ocean. And the good stuff doesn’t stop there. The shops, pubs and beaches of Bude are 15 minutes’ drive, the sweeping sandy stretch of Widemouth Bay (10 minutes) is everyone’s favourite local surfing spot, and younger kids can have a zoom down waterslides at Monster Slip and Slide Cornwall, just five minutes away. That’s everybody sorted then – oh, and as the site is dog-friendly, your canine chums can come along for the ride too. A few other things you should know: this is a wild site, with no electricity and no showers. What you do get are spacious pitches on a camping field with bags of room for the kids to run around, and plenty of privacy if you want to hunker down around your campfire or spark up a barbecue by night (just remember to bring a couple of torches to light your way around after dark).

Local attractions

Keep the kids active with days out on the water at Tamar Lakes Activity Centre (20 minutes’ drive), where you can go paddleboarding and kayaking or learn to sail a dinghy. Families can easily spend a day on the fairground rides and in the petting zoo at The Milky Way Adventure Park (half an hour), or take toddlers to feed lambs (in spring) and cuddle baby goats at The BIG Sheep (45 minutes). When a day at the seaside is requested, you have a choice of North Cornwall beaches within about 15 minutes’ drive, including the popular sands and rock pool at Summerleaze Beach, the saltwater Bude Sea Pool (also 15 minutes) and the dog-friendly expanse at National Trust-owned Sandymouth Bay Beach (20 minutes). Surfers – novice and expert alike – should hotfoot it to Widemouth Bay (10 minutes) to catch its consistent Atlantic waves. If you’d rather explore on foot, grab a pair of comfy walking boats and have a meander along the South West Coast Path (five minutes), or go further afield for a yomp over heathland to the mysterious Nine Stones Stone Circle (40 minutes) on gorgeous Bodmin Moor.
