Sunny Pooh Corner: Site entrance

General

  • Family-friendly park within walking distance of a quiet Devon village
  • A 10-minute walk from Ashwater; 30 minutes' drive from Bude
  • Far-reaching rural views; under a mile from a vineyard and local pub

This rather relaxing site is a prime choice for those looking to be lulled into a leisurely mood. Sunny Pooh Corner is but a 10-minute stroll from the Devon village of Ashwater, a peaceful spot that's home to a friendly local pub, a handy food shop and a gorgeous village green (where you can catch glimpses of far-off Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor on clearer days).

Sunny Pooh Corner has plenty of pleasant vistas of its own – the folk that run this place say that there's something special to see from every pitch. This rural site is also a hub for animal life – as well as the wild critters that can frequently be seen scurrying through the long grass, Sunny Pooh Corner has horses and an inquisitive gaggle of geese to its name. Dogs are also welcome here, but please make sure to keep them on a lead.

Well-kept toilets and showers are available if you haven't brought your own (a small charge applies), and water is available for guests. Barbecues are welcome here, but please keep them safely off the ground.

Another option at mealtimes is sampling pub-cooked grub from the Village Inn's varied menu (highlights include locally sourced fish dishes). There's also a vineyard a few minutes' walk away that organises regular tours and tasting events.

Please note

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

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

    Fabulous accommodation, very comfortable with everything you could need. Stunning, remote location that is very quiet and tranquil - just what we wanted. All finished to a very high standard with luxurious furnishings.
    Amanda and Ricky were so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Lots of really lovely added touches such as a bottle of milk and cupcakes in the fridge. We will definitely be back.

    The cup of coffee on arrival - that was a lovely surprise and the first time ever!
    The peace and quiet of the site with only 1 other van. Only max of 5 when full so it's probably the same.
    It was very wet and windy to start with but we were still able to fully relax and see the views once the clouds and rain mist had dissipated.

    Friendly hosts, good pitches with views across to Dartmoor.
    Good access from the A30 and ideally located to tour or take trips to the seaside.
    Local pub does good beer and food.
    The lanes in the local area are quiet and fine for walking or for the more energetic cyclist, E-bikes would be a great accessory to flatten the hills.

    Wonderful small site with great views. We were welcomed with a tray of tea by Amanda, the owner (we were a bit early, but told not to worry by Ricky, the other owner) We could not have been made more welcome. Firm grass pitch with water and EHU, grey waste piped into the paddock. Village pub 15mins walk away, very good food. We ate outside in the sun in a very nice well kept beer garden. Small (bijou) very clean well kept facilities, but we used our own. We are going back!

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

Before wining and dining in Ashwater you might want to build up a bit of an appetite. Head to Roadford Lake (10 minutes' drive) for a spot of sport in scenic surrounds – here you can opt for waterside walks or hire a kayak from the activity centre. After a lake where you can fish? Clawford Lakes (five minutes) has 17 different pools to choose from.

Or perhaps you'd rather cast your line in the briny deep? Head into Bude (30 minutes) to sort off-shore fishing trips and to be in with a chance of bringing back some fresh mackerel or bass. Make sure to check out Bude’s gorgeous sandy beaches while in town, or head down the road instead to pebbly Crackington Haven (40 minutes from base).

The wide open spaces of Dartmoor National Park are also on the cards. The old fortress town of Okehampton (30 minutes) is the gateway to the park – the remains of its medieval castle still stand today and are a great vantage point over the surrounding countryside. When it comes to wild and windswept Dartmoor vistas, though, High Willhays Tor (45 minutes) is the undisputed champion.

Must see

  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (15.4 miles)
  • Castle Drogo (20.8 miles)
  • Tintagel Castle (21.6 miles)

National Trust

  • Lawrence House (7.9 miles)
  • Lydford Gorge (10.1 miles)
