General

  • Riverside camping near Bude
  • Woodland and wildlife walks, hammocks and free wifi and firepit use
  • Newly refurbished and heated shower block; disabled shower and loo

‘Campfires are allowed by the riverside,’ say the owners of Woodview Campsite near Bude in Cornwall, which is symbolic of such splendid pitching we’ll have to say it again. Campfires allowed. By a riverside. In Cornwall. Oh, and the firepits are free to use, and by the river there are also hammocks. And swings. Yes we certainly wood.

Woodview Campsite is in north Cornwall on the Cornwall/Devon border (nifty for both Dartmoor and Exmoor National Park; we also wood) and six or seven miles from Sandymouth, Crooklets and the other beaches at Bude.

The many many activities and things to see are covered in the Local attractions section, but if you’re all of a flutter trying to decide what to do, just have a word with the Woodview team, a local family who knows the ins and outs and the upside downs of all to see and do in Cornwall. And there’s free wifi on site if you want to have a look at the Local attractions again or nearby walking routes, likely bike rides or pubs.

On site, all is topping: Woodview is an elevated position and sheltered by trees (clue in the name there), with pitches coming in hardstanding or grass with a choice of electric hook-up. Wander south for the stream on the edge of the campsite that flows into the River Tamar, or branch out into the beech woodland a short stroll away for wildlife walks among the wildflowers.

Facilities – all free – include a games room with table tennis, air hockey, Freeview TV, indoor football and snooker, and a newly refurbished shower and loo block with underfloor heating, baby changing and a disabled shower and loo. Laundry facilities are also available.

If you’re not using one of the seven riverside firepits, barbecues can be used (sensibly please) in the main pitching area, with a side helping of views towards Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor.

    Slightly caught out by the need to opt in for EHU. Thought it came with the pitch. Wasn't a problem for us as we have solar panel. Be aware of additional cost.

  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    We loved the swallows cabin it was so spacious and warm, there was a heater for night time and a fridge, tv, kettle & microwave as well as a bbq grill outside and tables and chairs. The site was amazing with hammocks by the stream and fire pits as well as some swings for children. So calm and peaceful and lovely scenery, and they had home made honey for sale in the shop as well as other things like milk bread and supplies for campfires/bbqs. The shower and toilets were warm and clean and there was indoor sinks for washing up. Such a beautiful place and a perfect weekend.

    There was a play room for the children which they liked and the staff were very friendly

    Disliked: 

    Pitches wasn't level which meant we were sleeping on a slop, fire pits weren't clean or tidy we had to tidy them up before we could use them. And we were very cramped in no room for the children to play outside our tent

From the manager...

The large indoor games room is very popular with all ages, most children prefer to play in here , but there are swings outdoors.
The fire pits are also well used, they are checked and tidied everyday.
Larger pitches are available if more space is required.

    Small, friendly campsite with the use of secluded fire pits.
    Well stocked small shop.
    Facilities were adequate given the size of the campsite. Having the extra family showers meant no waiting for a shower in the morning.
    No Wi-fi on the pitch (a like for me, but a dislike for some!)
    We liked it so much we decided to add an extra night to our holiday 😁

Directions


From Bude, follow the A39 towards Bideford. After going through Kikhampton for a mile on the Bideford side, turn right for Bradworthy then left at the T-junction. You should see Woodview Campsite signs. Follow these until you come to a crossway in the woods. There is another sign here for Woodview Campsite - turn left and the site is 100 metres along on the left.

From Bideford, follow the A39 towards Bude for 10 miles. Just after the Cornwall/Devon border sign, take the first left turning by a bungalow. Keep straight on, following Woodview Campsite signs for 2.5 miles. If you miss this turning, take the next left off the A39.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Within 20 minutes of Woodview Campsite, holidaymakers of all flavours will find beaut beaches, old seaside villages, family days out, coastal walks, sporty days and King Arthur legends at nearby Tintagel.

On days when not cooking over a campsite firepit or barbecue – because even with riverside firepits available one should sample quite a bit of Cornwall and Devon produce – pubs serving food and many tiptop restaurants are close by in the area of Bude, Hartland and Bideford (hang around in summer for carnivals and family events).

Bude’s three beaches, Sandymouth, Summerleaze and Crooklets, are popular with families and those dipping into watersports; surf schools and surf gear hire shops are aplenty on this part of coast.

Tamar Lake is also nearby to try sailing, fishing and canoeing, and the Bude Tourist Information & Canal Visitor Centre has info on navigating Bude Canal by kayak or rowing boat.

On land, Bude is on the National Cycle Network NCN3 linking to the Camel Trail; both have gentle rides suitable for families. The South West Coast Path can be picked up at Bude tourist information centre and covers superbly scenic walks from Bude to Boscastle, Marsland Mouth and Crackington Haven.

Also within 20 minutes, land fans have tenpin bowling and six levels of play at Harlequinns Leisure, and to rock climbing, tennis, squash, horse riding and golf: ask the Woodview team for their recommendations.

To the south, Tintagel and its castle are among the most visited places in Britain: stop at Boscastle on the way for one of our fave UK museums the Museum of Witchcraft, and carry on down the coast to Newquay for Newquay Zoo or a day at the Crealy Great Adventure Park in Wadebridge.

Cobbled Clovelly is to the north: clop around here for the day to see the town’s renowned steep street and have an astronomical day out at The Milky Way Adventure Park.

Bodmin Moor, Exmoor and Dartmoor are all within an hour’s drive, and an abundance of other family days out are easy to get to from Woodview, such as the Eden Project at St Austell, Launceston’s Tamar Otter Sanctuary and Trethorne Leisure Park, and famed The Big Sheep at Abbotsham.

Must see
