General

Tamarstone Farm is a small, friendly and well-maintained site just outside Bude, on the Devon and Cornwall border, within five miles of the nearest beaches.

    Very friendly place, the hosts are extremely welcoming and I felt completely safe as a solo female traveller. The facilities were clean and had everything I needed (hot shower especially!) Perfect as a base camp to explore Devon.

    Disliked: 

    Not really much to see around the site itself if you want to go for walks. This was the only downside though.

    Toilets and showers clean.. games room with microwave and freezer.. also could use sockets in there to charge up mobile phones for nominal fee.. also used this room in the evening to play board games in order to avoid the rain.
