Chapmanswell Caravan Park: Clubhouse and covered play area

General

  • Dog- and family-friendly park on the Devon/Cornwall border
  • A 25-minute drive to Bude and 40 minutes to Tintagel Castle
  • On-site clubhouse with restaurant, bar, games and entertainment

Devon or Cornwall? Cornwall or Devon? It is, of course, one of life’s dilemmas… but thankfully one that’s easily sorted with a stay at Chapmanswell Caravan Park, a Devon holiday park that’s close to the border with Cornwall and in a most handy spot for getting out to enjoy the spoils of both counties.

This park five minutes drive from the village of St Giles on the Heath ticks all sorts of boxes for all sorts of holidays: it’s a family-friendly and dog-friendly place, handily close to the A30 (five miles away) for travels and days out, and with some splendid views over the Tamar Valley and Dartmoor.

Even with all that on offer, there’s a highlight still to come – and that’s the site’s own clubhouse, The Anglers Rest, with a bar and grill that’s open all week and weekly live entertainment on Fridays and Saturdays during peak season (generally from 7pm to 10.30pm). The kitchen serves up top-notch food and there’s also a pool table, dartboard, fruit machines and a dance floor to keep the good times rolling. Ice creams, sweets, alcohol and assorted essentials can be picked up at the site shop (they’ve even got doggy ice cream to get four-legged family members in on the holiday vibes…)

Other facilities on site include a covered play area and a dog exercise area, along with a coin-operated launderette, a washing-up area and chemical disposal point. The bathroom facilities have baby changing facilities and central heating plus separate male, female and disabled shower areas. Reception is open seven days a week, and the owners live on site so you can always get hold of someone if you need anything.

    We found this site as a last minute find, and we are so glad we did! Everyone at the site are so friendly and made us feel really welcome. The club house is great and the food is good also. There is a nice large dog exercise field as well as a decent size kids play area. It is a well located site for visiting Dartmoor and surrounding areas
    We would definitely return

    Lovely clubhouse and food. Good laundry room with books and jigsaws. Friendly staff. I’m sure the experience would be better in the summer . Walking area for dog was large but because we busted in winter it was waterlogged and long grass.

    Disliked: 

    Booked for New Year’s Eve as clubhouse on site . Woke day before to find most of site had emptied out! Really disappointed and went home. Unlevel pitch.

    The owners couldn't have been more welcoming especially with it being Christmas, they even gave our 6 and 4 yr olds a Santa present, we stayed 3 nights and would love to return in the summer. the staff in the bar were very friendly and again kept my girls on their toes.

    All in all a very good Christmas break with the family, made very easy with all the facilities on site for a first time motor homers

    Friendly staff , the facilities that were working were clean

    Dog friendly and site was neat and tidy

    Disliked: 

    No ladies showers so there was only a single disabled shower working for all the female visitors .

    No hot water in the washing up area so not great for New Years camping

    Misunderstanding over a booking for food on New Years Eve ( dinner wasn’t available even though we booked in advance ) meant the trip did not go as planned . Fish n chips in Bude came to the rescue …….

Directions

Local attractions

The only issue with staying close to the Devon/Cornwall border is the possibility of being overwhelmed by options for days out… so perhaps it’s sensible to start somewhat local with a visit to Launceston Castle (10 minutes’ drive) or a day of meeting cute creatures at the Tamar Otter & Wildlife Centre (15 minutes)?

Alternatively, of course, you could set forth straight away for the seaside – there’s so much fab coastline around here but you’ll likely find some of the highlights to be the beaches and surf schools of Bude (25 minutes) and Widemouth Bay (half an hour). If you’re more into strolling along cobbled lanes, the fishing villages of Boscastle (the one with the witches museum) and Port Isaac (the one where they filmed Doc Martin) are both within a 45-minute drive.

Other coastal spots to check out include Tintagel Castle (40 minutes), a place of much Arthurian legend, and the maritime city of Plymouth (55 minutes), home to the UK’s largest aquarium and a stonking gin distillery.

Must see

  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (28.9 kilometres)
  • Tintagel Castle (30.6 kilometres)
  • Castle Drogo (36.8 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Lawrence House (8.7 kilometres)
  • Lydford Gorge (17.7 kilometres)
