Chelsfield Farm: The fishing lake

General

  • Rural Cornish farm with on-site fishing
  • A 20-minute drive from Bude
  • Farm shop on site, plus bar/restaurant with takeaway options

Cornwall, fishing, fab views, lip-smacking farm produce and pasties made to order… 'tis no wonder that guests wax lyrical about Chelsfield Farm, about 20 minutes from the beaches and watery activities of splendid Bude.

Set on a smallholding within 17 acres deep in rural Cornwall, this family farm comes with spectacular views towards Dartmoor, immaculate amenities, and a handsomely set fishing lake at which to land carp and tench for a small fee. (Not a fishing fan? Bring a book and a picnic to the lakeside instead.)

Resident horses Dolly and Connie are part of the farm menagerie, along with a flock of sheep, free-range chickens, turkeys, geese and guinea fowl, all on a wide open green space with large, level and well-drained pitches and plenty of room for kids to play (send them to find the tree swing and you'll likely not see them for hours). Amenities are well looked after and include a toilet and shower block with free electric showers, a washing-up sink, several water taps and a chemical waste point.

Owners Marianne and Alan strongly encourage barbecues here, so it's just as well that Chelsfield also comes with a smashing farm shop, stocked with first-rate produce including locally farmed meat, fresh free-range eggs and other bits and pieces to sizzle up on the site barbie while looking across to Dartmoor. A bar is to hand for drinks afterwards.

If you'd rather not cook, the farm's restaurant/takeaway serves breakfast baps, burgers and hot dogs, as well as sandwiches, pies and pasties all made to highly tasty order.

Please note

Facilities/activities including fishing are subject to extra charges payable on arrival.

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

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

Reception is unmanned after 5:30 p.m.. Please inform the site while on your way there should you expect to arrive after this time, so that the team can provide information about your unit/pitch.

All pets must be wormed.

    We absolutely loved our time here, there are sheep in the field ahead, unpolluted skies at night and a very friendly atmosphere around the site.

    Not far (20 mins approx)to many beautiful beaches, towns, supermarkets, tourist attractions etc
    Not a huge busy site, so great for small kids as you could watch kids go to facilities from tent and room to play on small tenting field
    Working farm so could see animals (horses, geese, sheep etc).
    Small farm shop for essentials, had fresh eggs and bacon for breakfast.
    Pub on site for food and drink

    Up in the hills so mist/rain most mornings (or in the night when you need the toilet) lol

Local attractions

North Cornwall, north Devon and Dartmoor are all easily reachable from Chelsfield Farm, for days around coast and countryside, wildlife watching and walking, cantering around on horseback and fishing via shore and river. Tintagel Castle, the Crealy Great Adventure Park and other top Cornish family spots are within a short drive.

Most folk know nearby Bude for its surf, but you'll find a fair bit to do around town and out of the water too, from cantering on its coastline to potters around its old harbour or letting the kids loose at the town's six-storey indoor play centre.

The spectacular South West Coast Path runs from Bude to Crackington Haven and from there onto Boscastle and Tintagel, or you could hike in the other direction 15 miles to Hartford Quay via the Hartford Peninsula and then – if you dare – another 10 miles onto the tiny cobbled town of north Devon's Clovelly.

Other activities all around include sea fishing, clay pigeon shooting, birdwatching, and spotting local wildlife like red deer, roe deer, foxes, badgers, frogs, newts, toads, squirrels and hedgehogs: it's very much recommended that you bring your paintbox and your camera…

Must see

  • Tintagel Castle (14.2 miles)
  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (20.3 miles)
  • Rock Beach (24.2 miles)
