- Coastal park set in over 50 acres of grounds
- A short drive from the surf schools and beach at Bude
- Free heated pool, free wifi, clubhouse, kids' club and bar
Free! The price of zilch is what you’ll pay to keep the kids happy at Widemouth Bay Caravan Park a few miles from Bude, which is bound to result in wide-mouthed grins for all concerned.
This large and lively family park has kids’ clubs run by the cunning Foxy, free evening entertainment by the Stripey Coats, crazy golf to go loopy at and an indoor heated pool, which are also…free. As is the wifi in the clubhouse. Huzzah.
Widemouth Bay Caravan Park’s location is also pretty smilesome: on a hilltop overlooking the Cornish countryside and the fab Widemouth Bay with its three miles of sand. There are over 50 acres to lose yourself in around the park and pretend you never have to go home, with the takeaway, well-stocked shop and tasty meals at the bar keeping you sorted for nosh and a launderette looking after the essentials.
Looking for yet more things to do on site? Challenge the kids on the amusements or show them how to hustle on the pool table – letting them beat you should result in even more wide smiles…

Leave the M5 at Junction 27 taking the A361 to Barnstaple and then the A39 to Bideford and Bude. Bypass Bude, stay on the A39 and take the second Widemouth Bay turning on the right. Turn left at the Widemouth Manor and our entrance is on the left.
Widemouth Bay is where you’ll find the surf: if you’re new to launching yourself happily into the waves there are surf and bodyboarding schools dotted all around here and Bude.
Or within 50 minutes’ drive you’ll reach Newquay, Cornwall’s surfing capital, where natch there are surf schools too and where you can also learn the ropes in sailing and other watery pursuits. If you’re there in August, make some time to spectate at the international surfing championships at Fistral Beach – you’ll be up to scratch to compete next year…
There’s a three-mile stretch of sand at Widemouth Bay for those who prefer to stay on towels rather than boards, with hundreds of rockpools strewn around the bay for spotting local critters.
The well-known resort of Bude is less than ten minutes by car from the caravan park and has a couple of excellent beaches: Summerleaze, to have a dip in the sea pool at the bottom of the cliffs and to bag a beach hut for hire so you can pretend for one fleeting afternoon that it’s your very own, and Crooklets, which you can reach by a short stroll from Summerleaze Down. Both beaches, and the sea pool at Summerleaze, are lifeguarded.
The staff at Widemouth Bay Caravan Park recommends a car to see the best of Cornwall, but you won’t have very far to drive to reach most of the main hotspots: the Eden Project is about 50 minutes away, and Tintagel, legendary home of King Arthur and Merlin, is just along the coast.
Slightly further south, follow the A39 inland to Wadebridge and St Columb Major, with quick (or lengthy) detours for fish and chips at Padstow, looking out for Doc Martin at Port Isaac or going beast spotting on Bodmin Moor. The 17 miles of the walking, horse riding and cycling way the Camel Trail run from Padstow along to Wadebridge and Bodmin.
Or just get into the car and see where your whim takes you: anywhere in Cornwall you’ll not be far away from historic houses, green and flowery gardens, cream teas in tiny villages, market towns to browse around and hordes of things to do for the kids.
