  • Dog walk area on site; Camel Trail access via a sloping grass pathway
Scenic views, lots of space and plenty of peace are what it’s all about at Pendavey View Camping, a well-kept Cornish site with easy access from the A389. When they say ‘view’ here, they certainly mean it – this elevated site among wildflower meadows has 360-degree views of the surrounding green farmland, providing a soothing backdrop to the spacious pitches (each of which is a minimum size of 15 x 20 metres). Of course, this is Cornwall, so there are many more views to take in nearby – and this place is particularly well located for those who’d like to explore the scenery on foot or bikes, as it's within walking distance of the Camel Trail, a traffic-free multi-use trail running along the banks of the river Camel. Access to the trail is via a sloping gradient through grass and woodland, but there’s an alternative way round via the road if you’d like to keep things a bit easier. The trail itself runs for 18 miles, so there’s scope for a good stretch of the legs along there. If you’ve got a dog who just needs a bit of a run around, however, you can use the dog walking field on site, which has grass pathways cut into a field of wildflowers. Energetic kids, meanwhile, can play ball games at the large grassy area set aside specifically for this purpose. Things are fairly simple on site here, with little to distract from the peace and scenery, but guests will have access to toilet and shower facilities. A cosy village pub is a few minutes’ walk away, and the towns of Wadebridge (five minutes' drive) and Bodmin (about 10 minutes’ drive away) are both good places to find shops and places to eat. On Wednesday through to Saturday, a food van with trained chefs turns up from 4pm to 8pm to serve tasty food (and when the school holidays hit, they also serve breakfast on the same days). Handily, the site has also teamed up with a dog-walking and petsitting service run by friendly Skye, so guests can leave them in safe hands for dog-free days out.
