General

  • 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…

    Sadly we couldn't go on holiday due to the October local lockdown in Wales.
    However there customer service and understanding that the situation was out of our control was absolutely excellent and refunded our holiday in full.
    We will definitely be booking again with John fowler and look forward to it but next time I think we'll wait until things calm down.

  • Liked: 

    We liked the views from the campsite, and the pitch we stayed on was nice (after requesting to move) the facilities were ok, (what we could use of them) toilet blocks were clean and tidy as well as the washing up area.

    Disliked: 

    Only thing is our first pitch was on such a slope it would have been impossible to cook etc. And the pool area wasn’t the best.

    Pitches ! After asking for a level pitch it is impossible to have one as all the pitches are on a hill slop this isn’t mentioned on the website or on pitch up we was very disappointed as it was very hard to get a decent nights sleep !
    I think the site should just cater for the camper vans and caravan tourers as they are able to self level

Local attractions

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, and Newquay is within 50 minutes' drive.

Bude less than 10 minutes by car 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.

Must see

  • Tintagel Castle (19.0 kilometres)
  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (34.5 kilometres)
  • Rock Beach (36.6 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Tintagel Old Post Office (19.0 kilometres)
  • Lawrence House (20.5 kilometres)
