Widemouth Bay Caravan Park: Beautiful (photo added by  on 06/06/2022)

General

  • Family park set over 50 acres on a hilltop overlooking Widemouth Bay
  • A short drive from the surf schools and beach at Bude
  • Free heated pool, free wifi, clubhouse, kids' club and bar

Free! The price of zilch is what you’ll pay to keep the kids happy at Widemouth Bay Caravan Park a few miles from Bude, which is bound to result in wide-mouthed grins for all concerned...

This large and lively family park has kids’ clubs run by the cunning Foxy, free evening entertainment by the Stripey Coats, crazy golf to go loopy at and an indoor heated pool, which are also…free. As is the wifi in the clubhouse. Huzzah.

Widemouth Bay Caravan Park’s location is also pretty smilesome: on a hilltop overlooking the Cornish countryside and the fab Widemouth Bay with its three miles of sand. There are over 50 acres to lose yourself in around the park and pretend you never have to go home, with the takeaway, well-stocked shop and tasty meals at the bar keeping you sorted for nosh and a launderette looking after the essentials.

Looking for yet more things to do on site? Challenge the kids on the amusements or show them how to hustle on the pool table – letting them beat you should result in even more wide smiles…

    All of the accommodation. My pitch was just opposite the showers and toilets which was handy for the children. Entertainment was great for children and adults. Bar and food reasonably priced. Ben the warden gave me a oven for the campervan.

    Close to the beach even though it was a steep climb there and back. The site was quite quiet and the staff were friendly but you could tell it was the end of season when we stayed there. Facilities were clean but, because it was the end of the season there were not many of them.

    Disliked: 

    No drive over grey water disposal point for motorhomes.

    Lovely views, great beaches a few minutes down the road, great town. Site had helpful friendly staff. clean toilets and shower block. Showers nice and hot. Pool was ok small and very busy.

    Disliked: 

    Club house feels a little dated. Arcade could do with an upgrade also as lots of machines in there but only a handful actually work and every other day machines go down out of order. Pool was very slippery as there isn't enough non slip mats around.

Local attractions

Widemouth Bay is where you’ll find the surf: if you’re new to launching yourself happily into the waves there are surf and bodyboarding schools dotted all around here and Bude, and Newquay is within 50 minutes' drive.

Bude less than 10 minutes by car has a couple of excellent beaches: Summerleaze, to have a dip in the sea pool at the bottom of the cliffs and to bag a beach hut for hire so you can pretend for one fleeting afternoon that it’s your very own, and Crooklets, which you can reach by a short stroll from Summerleaze Down. Both beaches, and the sea pool at Summerleaze, are lifeguarded.

The staff at Widemouth Bay Caravan Park recommends a car to see the best of Cornwall, but you won’t have very far to drive to reach most of the main hotspots: the Eden Project is about 50 minutes away, and Tintagel, legendary home of King Arthur and Merlin, is just along the coast.

Must see

  • Tintagel Castle (11.8 miles)
  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (21.4 miles)
  • Rock Beach (22.7 miles)

National Trust

  • Tintagel Old Post Office (11.8 miles)
  • Lawrence House (12.7 miles)
