Colliford Tavern: Beer garden and play area

General

  • Woodland site in spacious Bodmin Moor tavern grounds
  • A 15-minute drive from Bodmin and 25 minutes from the Eden Project
  • Restaurant, bars, games room and fishing on site

If peaceful stays within a few minutes’ stroll of bars, restaurants, evening entertainment and trout fishing appeal, then making your getaway for Colliford Tavern is a must. The family-friendly site is a quarter mile from the shores of Colliford Lake, and 15 minutes’ drive from Bodmin, Cornwall.

In the grounds of a family-run tavern and hotel, the site is well placed for outdoorsy forays. On the famed Bodmin Moor, and within easy reach of lakeside walks, getting out and about is a must. Those comfortable with lengthy wanders should make tracks for Dozmary Pool, the rumoured resting place of King Arthur’s sword, Excalibur. More of a ‘sitting still in quiet contemplation’ type? Colliford Lake is a top spot for rainbow and brown trout fishing, and a licence can be secured at reception.

For taking explores a bit further afield, car hire and bike hire are available through the hotel, putting hikes and Cornish beaches within handier reach, even for those who are travelling without a vehicle. Why not hire both? Throw the bikes in the car and head as far as Wenford Bridge to start the 18-mile cycle (or stroll) along the Camel Trail to Padstow.

On days where straying far doesn’t appeal, simply stick around site: the hotel is open daily for all meals, and the bars are too. An indoor games room and outdoor playground should keep kids busy, and the occasional live music and entertainment should liven up evenings. A kitchen unit for guests makes cutting down on spending a cinch too, and peaceful nights away from the bar can be spent stargazing, as Bodmin Moor is a Dark Sky Reserve.

Please note

The restaurant is open between 01/01 and 31/12.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

No bachelor/bachelorette parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

    Quiet enough stop off en route to Cornwall

    Disliked: 

    Place is past its best. Staff were friendly enough, but all a bit run down. 1/4 of the menu on. A little bit shabby round the edges.

    Site restaurant was closed due to no chef.
    Rubbish around the site was never picked up.
    We booked two pitches next to each other and when we arrived the two we was given were not together and had great big holes in. Luckily we move to another spot.

    The food was ok when we eventually got it.

    Disliked: 

    This could be and looks like a beautiful location…. Unfortunately it’s not well kept and in fact is really run down and nothing like the pictures, very disappointing…. The camping fields are literally covered in sheep
    Poo and littered with rubbish same with the pathways leading to the restaurant/pub.
    No one seems to know what they are doing, beer was awful and only 3 options of meals- personally I’m not fussy so lasagna suited me but must have waited nearly an hour for 2 meals and there was only one other table eating that we could see.
    Very unfortunate this is a great location if only someone cared and restored it to its beauty.
    Definitely one to miss

Overpriced and underwhelming.07/24/2022

    Location was beautiful. Staff were friendly.

    Disliked: 

    Sheep poo all over the pitch- no mention of wild sheep in the info. Facilities smelt like drains and although the women’s weren’t dirty I couldn’t go in there due to smell. My partner said men’s were dirty. No hot water to wash dishes.
    Was told when we arrived that it would be quiet so not to worry about space then when we arrived back the next day they had parked a van so close to us even though the field was completely empty.
    It just had an unloved and unkept feel even though they were charging top prices.

From the manager...

Dear Guest,
Toilets and showers are deeply cleaned three times a day and monitor every hour. As you have told that the site was empty therefore it may not be true as you have mentioned. We have a timesheet on the toilet backdoor and its says who has cleaned it and when. If still something wrong should be reported to member of staff. Unfortunately we have no record of it.
Yes, sheep is an issue we are trying to solve but we are surrounded by grazing lands in Bodmin moor, Therefore it is very hard to keep sheep off from our lands. Neighbouring farmers have been contacted to see if they take responsibilities of their sheep.
Regarding the van not clear to us what you want to establish. It is contradictory of your statement when an empty field you have said and photographed. Thank you very much for the beautiful weather photo of our campsite. Yes, people pay for it and love its tranquilities.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

History buffs will find lots round here to entertain, starting with some literary history. Five minutes’ drive from base is the Jamaica Inn (yes, the Daphne du Maurier one), and its Smugglers Museum is well worth a visit. Poldark fans will know Cornwall as mining country, and that’s well catered for hereabouts too: it’s 15 minutes from the site to Carnglaze Caverns for underground tours of the old slate mine and visits to a subterranean lake.

More upmarket history can be delved into at some of the stately manors in the vicinity – Pencarrow and Lanhydrock are both within 25 minutes, and it’s 40 minutes to Prideaux Place. Prefer history to have a more urban bent? Make the 15-minute journey to Bodmin and explore the jail, regimental museum and town museum.

Hols incomplete without beach days can find satisfaction within 35 minutes at the fishing village of Port Isaac or the town of Newquay, but if sand-free days more appeal, it’s less than half an hour from base to the incomparable Eden Project.

Must see

  • Tintagel Castle (19.3 kilometres)
  • Eden Project (22.6 kilometres)
  • Rock Beach (24.4 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Tintagel Old Post Office (18.3 kilometres)
