General

  • Relaxed 'dog friendly' caravan and camping park
  • No extra charge for dogs
  • Dog exercise area, mile-long dog walk and kenneling facilities on-site

It’s safe to say that Hedley Wood Caravan & Camping Park is one of the most animal-friendly sites around: as well as the facilities for canine visitors, winner of The Kennel Club's 2012 award for Somewhere to Camp no less, mini campers will do cartwheels when they find all the feathered and furry friends in the pets' corner.

Message to Fido: there’s no extra charge for dogs, so bring your mates - the exercise area, exciting mile-long dog walk and shelves full of pooch produce in the shop will get tails wagging. Should your humans insist on boring sightseeing in places which haven’t yet grasped the concept of doggie service, you can always ditch them for a day’s partying in the reasonably priced kennel facilities on site.( Just remember to keep your owners happy by letting them pick up after you and parade you around on the lead outside of the canine fun zones.) You can even pretend to let them choose the pitch - sheltered, open terrain or sea views. They do like to think they’re in charge, after all...

This is a well-equipped site: there are two modern toilet and shower blocks with free hot water, facilities for dishwashing, laundry and recharging of batteries and freezer packs, adventure playgrounds for both littlies and older kids, plus a shop for vittles and other camping essentials. The team recommends Freesat TV on park as the TV signal in the area is very intermittent since digital transmission. Freesat kits can be hired on arrival.

Foodwise, the shop provides a takeaway snack menu, or there’s homemade grub served in the conservatory of the Woodman Bar (open throughout high season and at other busy times of year).

    Great park - everyone had dogs but that was to be expected I guess. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Nice sized park, not too big for our 1st camping trip with the puppy. Great woodland walk which the dog and kids loved.

    Very friendly, decent bar and food, bacon sarnies in the morning was a great bonus!

    Disliked: 

    Not much for the youngest to do (3) as the climbing frame was only really for bigger kids. Really difficult to get normal pegs into the ground as very stony beneath the surface.

We had an enjoyable stay and despite the critisims it was ok. 15/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Richard E. Confirmed

  • Liked: 

    Situation, Helpful staff, not regimented.

    Disliked: 

    Showers to small and uncontrollable. Not enough hard standings which is necessary on a site that is soggy. TV reception poor.

From the manager...

Thank you so much for your review.
Sadly July and August weather has been extremely unkind to us this season. We have over 25 hard standing pitches but when bad seasons strike inevitably grass is wet!
We do hope it improves for the latter half of the season.

    Nice clean site and friendly staff.Dog friendly.

    Disliked: 

    Allowing people to pitch up late at night. Made a lot of noise and bad language not good when you have young children.

From the manager...

Thank you for your kind review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and we apologise for any noise that occurred with a late pitch up. We will do our best to ensure this is taken care of in future.

Directions


From the north east (M5):

Take M5 south to Exeter (junction 31) and the A30 (past Okehampton) to A386 interchange (towards Bideford). Travel 2 miles and take the A3079 to Holsworthy, then onto the A3072 towards Bude. Midway between Holsworthy and Bude at Red Post cross roads, turn left onto B3254.

Alternatively:

Take M5 to junction 27 to Tiverton. Take A361 to Barnstaple (not off to South Molton!) then follow A39 (Atlantic Highway) to Kilkhampton. Turn left onto B3254 (Launceston road) to Red Post cross roads. Go straight over the crossroads on the B3254.

Travel just over two miles - take right turn on the brow of a hill (sign-posted Titson) for approximately 500 yards - we are on the right.

From the south east (A30):

Exit the A30 at Launceston. Take the A388 towards Holsworthy, then pick up B3254 towards Bude on the outskirts of Launceston. After passing through Whitstone, traverse a further 1 3/4 miles. On the brow of a hill, turn left (sign-posted Widemouth Bay) immediately before the Welcome to Devon sign for approximately 500 yards - we are on the right.

Local attractions

Guests are spoiled for choice when it comes to brilliant beaches: Bude has two of the best, Summerleaze, which has an open-air sea pool, and Crooklets, popular with surfers. Other good options nearby include Widemouth Bay, Crackington Haven (rockpooltastic) and the National Trust’s Sandymouth Bay, with its own waterfall, plus Trebarwith Strand and Westward Ho! a little further afield.

Top ideas for day trips include the castles at Tintagel and Launceston; the pretty cobbled lanes and ancient harbour of Clovelly (cars are banned in the village, but there are plenty of donkeys); the Eden Project’s exotic architecture - and contents; Padstow Harbour, famously home to Rick Stein and his multiple tastebud-ticklers; the romantic fishing villages of Boscastle and Port Isaac; or Bodmin Jail, a historic civil and naval prison which is now a museum, and is famed for its ghost hunting opportunities.

There are three adventure parks for kids in the area: Trethorne Leisure Farm, which has lots of cuddly farm animals, indoor sliding, bouncing and climbing, and outdoor action including pedalos, crazy golf and electric cars; Atlantis Adventure Park (handily located within the the Atlantic Village shopping outlet...); and the Milky Way, which has rides and rollercoasters, assault courses, live shows and falconry displays.

Must see

  • Tintagel Castle (15.3 miles)
  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (18.0 miles)
  • Rock Beach (26.0 miles)

National Trust

  • Lawrence House (11.2 miles)
