Thornbury Holiday Park: Lake view

General

  • Family site within 30 minutes' drive of Bude's popular surfing beaches
  • A short drive from The Milky Way and The Big Sheep
  • Coarse fishing lakes, play area, pets' corner and bar

Just look at those lush, lush lakes… anglers will be in fishy heaven at Thornbury Holiday Park.

As will pretty much all sorts of guests whatever their age or holiday inclination: the park's a short drive from the sand and surf of Bude as well as within easy reach of all manner of Devon and Cornwall highlights... and is in splendid setting with spectacular countryside views all around; do see pics.

This leafy and rightly popular family park, set across almost nine acres, has two well-stocked coarse fishing lakes for fisherfolk to cast off at; after that, you can wander over to the bar to pick from the wide range of wine, beer and hot drinks. Live bands, bingo and themed food evenings are held in high season.

Kids are well sorted too, with an outdoor play area, loads of green space to run about in, and a pets' corner which the Thornbury team reckons is a must-see. Kids may also care to know that two family amusement parks (The Milky Way and The Big Sheep) are around half an hour's drive away…

The park's excellently-maintained amenities include a launderette and a modern sanitary block with toilets and hot showers, both open 24 hours a day.

Hen and duck eggs are available year round in the site's honesty box.

  • Liked: 

    The walks around the fishing lakes and the fenced off dog walk area.
    The peacefulness of it .
    Showers and toilets very clean.
    Friendly owners.
    Tidy site.

    Disliked: 

    The free run if the hens was nice but was a bit bothered at first how our dog would react to them?
    We specifically booked at a site that had a club house to be able to get food and non was available.
    Its location was slightly awkward due to the country roads being narrow if you are travelling with a larger vehicle?

From the manager...

Thank you for your review John, we really appreciate it.

  • Liked: 

    A small and friendly site in a beautifully idyllic setting.
    It was so peaceful with beautiful lakes and the children loved the fact that the chickens were daily visitors in our awning.
    The bar opened Wednesday through to Saturday, with a surprisingly well stocked bar for such a little site.
    The playpark was really well kept as were the facilities and the entire site was beautifully clean.
    The free WiFi by the reception/bar area was a bonus.
    We absolutely loved our week's stay and not only have we reccomended it to friends and family, but we will also be booking again ourselves.

    Disliked: 

    Absolutely nothing to dislike.

From the manager...

Thank you very much for your review Karen we really appreciate it and your pictures are lovely.

    Clean place, quiet with nice scenery.

    Disliked: 

    When we first arrived we thought the place was lovely.the lady running it was very friendly and welcoming.however when our 2 year old daughter fell asleep and we drove our van down to our tent to put her down for her nap the male owner approached us and started shouting at us. He was very aggressive in his manner so much so we packed up our tent and left.very unprofessional.would not recommend this place to anyone.

From the manager...

Dear Mr Marchment, we are really disappointed to read the comments in your review. We always do our very best to welcome all of our guests and we always remain professional.
For the safety of all of the children and animals on our site we ask that all guests park in our car park, after they have pitched up. We explained this to you on arrival. Unfortunately this was not the first time we had to ask you to put your vehicle in the car park. Its disappointing that you feel our tone was aggressive . We do not believe that this is the case.
Also please note that your departure date was 30th May and our check-out time is 12 noon. You departed on 30th May much later than this without prior arrangement.
Kind regards
Lisa & Paul

Directions

Local attractions

Stay close to base or head out on a day trip around Devon and Cornwall: there's enough to do around here to keep you busy for weeks.

A 25-minute drive just over the Cornish border will land you at the three spectacular sandy beaches of Bude (Summerleaze, Crooklets and Sandy Mouth), famed particularly for their surfing but also a top spot for sea fishing and for family sandy days. A grassy play park is behind Bude's tourist information centre if you're in town with the kids, and a splendid pirate play area is at Crooklets beach.

If you're feeling especially energetic (and aren't on hol with kids), take the South West Coast Path from Bude for a hike of almost 10 miles to Crackington Haven, or – strong legs and disposition very much required – the 15 or so miles from Bude to Hartland Quay. For gentler strolls (if you're on hol with the kids), take the easy saunters along the towpath of the Bude Canal, or get cracking on the Bude Mystery Treasure Trail following the canal to the RNLI Lifeboat House via Bude Castle.

Other top spots include the privately owned village of Clovelly (40 minutes' drive); the Museum of Witchcraft at Boscastle (45 minutes), and swashbuckling with King Arthur's lot at Tintagel, 55 minutes away.

Must see

  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (9.5 miles)
  • Castle Drogo (23.6 miles)
  • Tintagel Castle (23.8 miles)

National Trust

  • Lawrence House (14.8 miles)
  • Lydford Gorge (16.3 miles)

Cycle routes

Find local routes on the National Cycle Network - over 12,000 miles of cycling routes.
