Views from the pitches

General

  • Rural Cornish farm with on-site fishing
  • A 20-minute drive from Bude
  • Farm shop, takeaway, bar and site barbecue

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 takeaway serves breakfast baps, burgers and hot dogs, as well as sandwiches, pies and pasties all made to highly tasty order.

Please note

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

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

The grocery shop is open between 01/01 and 31/12.

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

All pets must be wormed.

    Working farm, lovely setting, quiet, friendly helpful owners.

    Disliked: 

    Absence of daily cleaning rota, especially at this difficult time during Covid 19. Toilet and shower doors difficult to close as prefab housing of facilities prevented air flow and a chance for cubicles to dry out.

Best campsite we have ever visited11/09/2020

    The owners are absolutely incredible, nothing is too big or too small. The views are incredible, not to mention the little walk to the lake, the food is fantastic, the toilets/showers are well looked after and hot water for showers regardless of the time, on the site there is an incredible little shop that contains everything you’d need for camping, from soap, to meats eggs, rice and even a very nice selection of soft drinks.

    On site is the most amazing bar, with a huge selection of wine, beer, cider ect ect.

    Nothing was too big or too small for the owners, They were so friendly, so easy to get along with, as well as all the amazing staff. We even extended our stay!!

    Between the two of us, we have well over 25 years camping experience, and this is the one place we would 100% recommend

    Between the beautiful views, the incredible facilities, the humble welcoming of the owners and staff, this is simply heaven.

    We can’t wait to go back in February to enjoy yet again the views, but the warmth of a chalet this time!!

    Disliked: 

    Our ONLY complaint - is that we didn’t spend more time here!!

Great site My 4 girls loved it and we will come again04/09/2020

  • Liked: 

    The owners were really welcoming and couldn’t do enough for you. Handy shop and lovely bar. Site felt secure and it was very quiet for us in the evenings and throughout the night. My daughter loved seeing the dogs and horse there. It was very muddy when we arrived due to bad weather but the owners had all hands on deck spraying off cars and helping people out when they were leaving. I would definitely come again.

    Disliked: 

    Toilets were fine but maybe need updating but this is personally preference as I am a bit picky about these things. They did the job and were clean though. (Maybe I’m just a bit of a home girl when it comes to my showers)

    Fantastic site and a wonderful welcome from all the staff. Second visit here and we all really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and a great base to explore the area. Food onsite is really good and not to expensive either. Cant wait to go again just not when it's so windy 😁

This was the perfect campsite for us on our long roadtrip!07/09/2020

    Everyone here was super friendly and very accommodating! It was truly perfect - we had a terrific time, and will hopefully come and visit again next year or some time in the future! <3 Just a pity for us that it's so far away from our home back in East London, haha :)

    Disliked: 

    There were many wasps at the site, which is quite the problem when some people in our group have a big phobia of them - however, this was easily rectified with some Raid (wasp killer), and a makeshift wasp trap. After this, everyone was completely comfortable being outside!

Directions


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

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)

National Trust

  • Lawrence House (7.1 miles)
  • Tintagel Old Post Office (13.9 miles)
