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.

We’ll get to all the many many activities and things to see 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. We wood.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

Single-sex bookings of 4 or more people (couples and immediate family members excepted) are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

    Friendly staff. Family showers are great just need more of them

    Disliked: 

    Pitches to close together. children's play park needs upgrading and more facilities need to be added like extra tumble dryer more showers and toilets are needed. it was a bit to off the beaten track for us

From the manager...

Thanks for your feed back.
We are a small family run campsite, and already have twice as many showers and toilets as recommended by camping and caravan organisations.
There are 2 double family showers, a disabled /family room and 4 other individual showers.
The pitches have a space with a fire break and a separate hard standing space for vehicles.
BY Play park I'm assuming you mean the large indoor games room where children are meant to be supervised by a responsible adult .
All the equipment is provided free of charge for guests to enjoy.
The sturdy John Deere ride on tractor (for toddlers) was new this year, after only 4 weeks it is already broken.
There are 3 pool tables - 1 was new last year -already damaged.
We regularly have to replace racquets and cues which are broken due to misuse.
Pool balls, connect 4 discs,and air hockey components are picked up off the floor several times a day.
We expect to replace the ping pong balls and shuttle cocks and do so almost daily.
Only this morning a brand new Wilson badminton racquet was picked up with the head completely broken off- this does not happen in normal play.
In normal weather conditions the laundry facilities have proved adequate this year has been exceptionally wet!
In spite of your negative comments you still asked to stay an extra day .
We will strive to continue to provide these good quality indoor facilities free of charge

    Anne, camp fires, stream and the welcome we received.

    Disliked: 

    Not enough toilets/showers, slope for tent, other campers shouting and swearing.

From the manager...

Hi glad you enjoyed your stay, thought you might of come back to stay in our new wood cabins, so to continue your coastal walk. Sorry to hear you experienced a noisy camper . For the 50 pitches we have 9 showers 8 toilets which is more than double recommended for this size camp site. The family showers room have been a big hit this summer.

    pleasant intimate site with family friendly facilities. Kids loved the indoor play area and hammocks by the river. Well located for Bude and the impressive north cornwall/devon coastline.

    The cabin was fantastic. It rained every night but we were snug, warm, dry and sound proofed

    Disliked: 

    Sometimes the Family showers were a teeny but mucky but this was due to the numbers using them. The cleaner was working his socks off to keep it all clean. The ladies showers and toilets were very well kep

From the manager...

Thank you for your feed back, I'm glad you enjoyed the comfort of the cabin.
The family showers are so popular that its sometimes difficult to get access to check in between guests.
This sort of weather makes all the hard standing for cars etc a real bonus.
Hope to see you again in the sun!

Directions


Coming from Bude:
We are just off the A39 between Bude and Bideford. Follow the A39 to Bideford and 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 we are after 100m on the right.

Coming from Bideford:
Follow the A39 to Bude for 10 miles. Just after the Cornwall/Devon border sign, take the first left turning by a bungalow on the road edge. Keep straight on, following Woodview Campsite signs for 2.5 miles. If you miss this turning take the next left off the A39.

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.
