Our original lodges - comfortable and cosy with plenty of indoor and outdoor space

General

  • Family-friendly site on spectacular Hartland Cornwall Heritage Coast
  • Five minutes from the beaches and surf spots of Bude
  • Seven acres of scenic countryside for walks and dog walking

Pack those hiking boots, make sure cameras are fully charged and snag yourself a stay at Willow Valley Camping Park, a family-friendly site in the Cornish village of Bush, five minutes’ drive from the coastal town of Bude – you’ll most definitely want to put those legs to good use.

The site is on the stunning Hartland Cornwall Heritage Coast, with sandy beaches to stroll along, cliff walks to follow and plenty of spectacular treats to stumble on during travels, like the clifftop village of Clovelly, where cars are banned and donkeys are the main mode of transport. The fab long-distance South West Coast Path passes through Bude too, so lengthier rambles are within easy reach.

There’s a fair share of exploration to do on site too if a day at base appeals: seven acres of walks to wander (and dog walks as well, so bring pooch along), and a spacious adventure play park for the kids if they need a bit of distraction or grownups need a chance to unwind.

A small on-site shop will keep moods up during high season, taking the stress out of packing by stocking the basic essentials and giving little sugar bursts as needed (check out the selection of treats to get that all-essential fix). For more substantial fare, Bude has plenty of options for local eats.

From the manager...

Hi Andrew, we are so sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your stay at Willow Valley. As you can see from our previous reviews, most of our guests do, so we apologise that your experience was so much less enjoyable. The electrician came out twice during your stay and could not fix the fault with the lights. That has now been fixed. We would have put up temporary lighting which we have available but wrongly thought the remaining lights which were still working were sufficient. Regarding the heating, this is the first full winter we have been open, having only taken the park over in late 2018 and applied for a 12-month licence. Now you have mentioned that you found the showers and toilet blocks cold, we are looking at installing some form of heating. So far, we've had several parties staying, including over Christmas and New Year, and you are the first ones to raise the lack of heating, Now this has been raised, we will look for a solution.

    Unfortunately the hardstanding pitch I’d booked wasn’t available and the ground was very soggy due to recent heavy rain. The owners couldn’t have been more helpful though.

Local attractions

Start any stay here with an immediate jaunt into Bude – there’ll be something here for everyone. There are splashing times to be had on the town’s Widemouth, Crooklets and Summerleaze surf beaches (all about 10 minutes’ drive from base) and with a few hours of coasteering, paddleboarding or swimming in the sheltered sea pool. Anyone who prefers to stay on dry land can visit the heritage centre in Bude Castle or pass by the town’s oldest house, Quay Cottage.

Keep one foot in homes of the past by tripping around stately piles and seeing how the one percenters of yore lived hereabouts: within 45 minutes of base, wandering the halls and rooms of Hartland Abbey, Pencarrow House and the Lawrence House Museum comes highly recommended. The stunning cliffside ruins of Tintagel Castle (believed to be the place where legendary King Arthur was conceived) and the pretty RHS Garden Rosemoor are within 40 minutes for easy scenic strolls and explores.

There’s plenty to keep kids entertained too: The Milky Way, The Big Sheep amusement park and trips on the Launceston Steam Railway are within half an hour. If longer car rides aren’t a problem, Crealy Adventure Park, Exmoor Zoo, the Blue Reef Aquarium and the fab Eden Project are a little over an hour away.

Must see

  • Tintagel Castle (16.4 miles)
  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (17.6 miles)
  • Rock Beach (27.4 miles)

National Trust

  • Lawrence House (15.6 miles)
