General

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

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

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

Dogs are not allowed in the accommodation units.

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

    nothing, really

    Disliked: 

    almost everything. we booked four nights, but left after two.
    after lots of rain the terrain had become so muddy that it didn't feel like holiday at all.
    toilets were less than basic, and yet prices were the highest we paid anywhere in britain, and we stayed at several well-equiped camp sites as well.
    never again.

    Wow, just sums this place up, if you like down to earth lovely owners in a farm setting then this hits the nail on the head.

    Alan & Marianne have got this down to a fine art in my opinion, The site BBQ on a Saturday night is well worth the visit this makes a good social point and ice breaker to meet and chat to others staying on the site, was a real pleasure.

    A farm shop on site selling most things you could need including a fantastic meat selection from animals on the farm and locally sourced.

    This will defiantly be on our list of places to visit again loved every minute of the 11 nights we stayed with them great value for money site ran by great people.

    Great find!
    Marianne and Alan were very welcoming and friendly. Both came to chat each day while out walking the dogs and checked if we needed anything.
    Grand kids loved playing on the swings and running around the fields looking at the animals on the farm.
    Nice little shop on site selling basic things you would need.
    Also sold various meat packages for barbecues. Lots of barbecues/fire pits dotted around the site for you to use. Owners have a barbecue every Saturday for guests.

    Quiet farm site with nice walks which is just what we wanted.
    Would definitely recommend this site and would come back if in the area!!!!

Directions

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 ten 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 (7.2 miles)
  • Tintagel Old Post Office (13.9 miles)
