Forged Earth Camping: Perfect pitch

General

  • Family-friendly site with pottery and welding craft retreats
  • A 15-minute drive from Bude and 35 minutes from scenic Clovelly
  • On a 12-acre working farm with ponies, goats and calves to meet

Keen on crafty hols? Get your arty fix at Forged Earth Camping, spread across 12 acres of a Cornwall working farm, 15 minutes’ drive from Bude and Holsworthy.

This is the place for those happy to get hands dirty – it's home to a craft retreat, so guests have access to pottery and welding workshops for quick tasters or longer courses. If you've got your eye on something different, the owners can also provide a list of local arts and crafts workshops – from mosaics to bone carving – to keep hands busy.

Away from the crafts, this is a prime spot for explores – the scenic coastline is about 15 minutes away by car, putting the beaches of Widemouth Bay, Crackington Haven and Bude within easy reach, as well as strolls on the South West Coast Path.

For a few hours off from activity, stay on site for animal encounter hours where a private guide will help you walk goats, bottle-feed calves, brush ponies and stroke pigs. Alternatively, just settle down to listen to acoustic music (there’s a no-stereos rule here) and take in the views over the Ruby Country fields. Watch the sun go down over the horizon, then relax by the campfire and look to the skies for some stargazing.

The site's pitches are well-spaced and mown into the field for a bit of privacy. The field has three flushing toilets, a portaloo and a washing-up area, and a short walk up the field takes you to another flushing toilet, two electric showers and a mini shop, all of which are scrubbed clean twice daily.

    Everything! large spacious pitches, set well apart. Good w/c and shower facilities that are kept very clean. The owners Angelique and William are so welcoming and helpful. My 5 year old son loved meeting the animals and using the inside/out shower. Pitches all have a fire pit which we loved sitting round toasting marshmallows in the evening, watching the sun set. Logs are available for a small charge and are delivered to your tent each day. The location is great, very peaceful but still close to Bude and some great beeches. There is a SPAR store about ¼ of a mile away for supplies.

    We stayed over the August Bank Holiday and had an absolutely perfect stay. Hope to return next year!

  • Liked: 

    The ideal camping spot! Facilities were clean and tasteful with fairy lights and phone charging points, the pitches were spaced out and each had a fire pit and the owners were absolutely lovely. The general atmosphere at the campsite was very pleasant and it was perfectly located for exploring north Cornwall. We could buy logs at the farmhouse and we received a great welcome document with tips for the area. Lastly, we loved how clear the skies were and definitely lucked out with the weather on the bank holiday weekend. Very little light pollution so the stars were breathtaking! Have already recommended Forged Earth to our friends and family and will be coming back :)

    Forged Earth is a fantastic camping location just on the border between Devon and Cornwall. The pitches were a really good size and we had plenty of room not just for our tent, but also a gazebo. The staff were friendly and helpful, including delivery of wood to your pitch for campfires! There are plenty of great beaches nearby, including Bude and Crackington Haven, and also is not too far from other attractions like Launceston Castle. We would highly recommend this campsite to anyone!

    Large, level field with nicely spaced pitches with long, wild grass in between. Good shower block, toilets and washing up sink. A very relaxed atmosphere. Owners were very friendly and helpful and our children loved feeding their animals in the evenings and playing on the swings and hammocks. We had a great stay and would highly recommend this campsite.

Pretty villages aren’t hard to find here: scenic Boscastle is half an hour away, as is the coastal village of Tintagel, home of the spectacular Tintagel Castle. For a glimpse of times gone by, head to Clovelly (35 minutes), a working fishing village with cobbled streets, donkeys and a historic harbour.
