General

  • Campsite with adjacent equestrian centre offering lessons and hacks
  • Lake on site with valley views
  • Peaceful family farm site with plenty of room for play

Why the long face? Because you didn't canter to Camelford for a Cornwall holiday surrounded by all things horse? Neigh problem: race to Lakefield Caravan Park to remedy.

A quiet farm park on the north Cornwall coast. Lakefield has its own British Horse School and Riding for the Disabled Association approved equestrian centre attached, with classes and rides for all ages and abilities from beginner to experienced. Your horse-mad little person can even trot along to a Saturday pony club or have a pony-owning experience day…

Other whinny-ing features on site are the stargazing – when it's dark here, it's really dark, points out the Lakeside team; the quiet secluded setting (no bars or clubs here) and the handy location: although it's secludedly set, Lakefield's on a B road so is an excellent base for galloping all over Cornwall.

Kids – and dogs – can roam with impunity around the big field for off-lead exercise (for dogs, not kids) and the big grassy area set aside for ball games, handily within eyeballing sight of most pitches. The whole site covers five acres, with lake and valley views on a 54-acre smallholding.

All pitches at Lakefield are grass and well-spaced, some with optional electric hook-up. The well-maintained and recently modernised amenities block has free hot showers, free hot water, a washing machine and a tumble dryer. Wifi is available on site and bread, eggs and milk are for sale at reception.

The medieval market town of Camelford is a mile away and has shops and a leisure centre with indoor pool.

Please note

Facilities/activities including equestrian lessons and hacks are subject to extra charges payable on arrival.

    The pitch was flat, the grass was in excellent condition, the toilet block was clean and has all facilities required. The owners and the staff where really down to earth and nice. The horses are in excellent condition and it's wonderful to be surrounded by them. It is close enough to camelford and easy to get around but far enough away for it to be completely quiet. All the other campers where in caravans so we did not hear a thing! Was a lovely weekend we will definitely be returning!

    Really friendly staff welcomed us on arrival. The booking in process was quick and efficient with us being shown to our allocated pitch within 5 minutes.

    The site was well maintained, and generally clean and tidy. The pitches are spacious and well sheltered. Toilet and shower facilities were always clean, and the showers were lovely and hot!

    We had a lovely weekend staying at Lakefield and would recommend it to our friends and family.

    Close to some great hot spots such as Tintagel, Port Isaac, Padstow and Bodmin. Friendly and relaxed staff. Well maintained facilities and big pitches.

    Disliked: 

    You really can't ditch the car due to being out of the way with very little public transport.

Safe campsite for young children 31/08/2016

  • Non-electric grass pitch

  • Liked: 

    Friendly staff, lots of space, great for young children as relatively few pitches compared to some of the sites we've been too and as such limited traffic that moves slowly. Showers are great and plugs for hair dryers - no charge for either.

    Disliked: 

    Limited on site facilities. Shop does not stock gas, only soft drinks and chocolate, eggs, bacon, bread and butter.

Directions


Lakefield Caravan Park is 1 mile north of Camelford on the B3266.

From Exeter, follow the A30 towards Launceston. Travel for a short distance past Launceston and exit at the Kennards House Junction for the A395 (towards Camelford). Continue on the A395 for about 10 miles until you come to a T-junction joining the A39. Turn left at the T-junction towards Camelford. Travel for approximately 2 miles and turn right (before Camelford) on to the B3314 via Slaughterbridge. At the next set of crossroads turn left onto the B3266. Lakefield is situated after 200 yards on your right.

To find Lakefield from the south-west, take the A30 towards Wadebridge, and at Wadebridge take the A39 towards Camelford. Follow this road for about 10 miles until you reach the outskirts of Camelford and a BP garage on your right. Take the first left after the petrol station towards Boscastle, the B3266. Follow this road for 1.5 miles, and Lakefield is situated on your left-hand side.

Local attractions

Ramble over moors or surf over waves from Lakefield Caravan Park: both Bodmin Moor and the sandy beaches of north Cornwall are close by.

At Bodmin, take a walk around the tors Rough Tor and Brown Willy, Cornwall's two highest points among its best known landmarks; at the coast, the strong waves of nearby Trebarwith Strand are eminently suitable for surfing – and the 800 metre-long sands a top pick for sunbathing.

On land, the Camel Trail 11 miles away is a good ride for families and has cycle hire in several spots. Popular Cornish day trips are within driving distance at Boscastle (five miles), Port Isaac (ten miles) and Padstow (19 miles).

This is legendary country too, with the castle and village of King Arthur's Tintagel six miles along the coast now one of the most visited attractions in the land.

It gets quite madly busy at Tintagel in summer, so for a less crowded experience, visit the Arthurian Centre at Slaughterbridge a mile and a half from the campsite and just outside the medieval market town of Camelford.

For those who fancy fishing, Crowdy Reservoir a couple of miles from Lakefield has free coarse fishing for Environment Agency rod licence holders from March to October.

Must see

  • Tintagel Castle (3.9 miles)
  • Rock Beach (12.1 miles)
  • Cornwall's Crealy Great Adventure Park (14.7 miles)

National Trust

  • Tintagel Old Post Office (3.3 miles)
  • Lawrence House (14.2 miles)
