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.

  • Non-electric grass tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Warm friendly environment perfect for young families. The campsite has a few harmless farm animals, chickens, geese, ducks, rabbits, a goat and even a peacock, which our young boy loved to play with. The facilities were good and clean but could do with refurbishment to add more, as there were only 2 shower cubicles.

    Disliked: 

    Only one men's toilet cubicle.

    Great setting. Chickens ,rabbits running free for the kids. Quiet location. Clean showers and laundry facilities. Lisa was welcoming On arrival and departure.

    Disliked: 

    Cars are allowed in the tent areas to load and unload which every one was doing and was cleared by the female host. On the last night ,Due to bad weather forecast I decided to pack up many items the night before therefore loaded the car up near the pitch. Due to much rain My van became stuck in the grass. The male host then came over and became hostile asking why I was parked on the grass and loading up. I apologised if my van had left tracks to which he started swearing With my children present before walking off leaving me to deal with the situation. Which another kind camper assisted whereby all that was left were two tyre tracks.
    It is fair to say the owner approached me on the morning and was very apologetic for his Outburst and use of profanities in front of my children. Lisa was friendly on Departure to add to the no hard feelings but sadly the previous evenings scenario had impacted on the experience.

From the manager...

We are very sad to read that you wont be returning to our site. Thank you for your comments, it was lovely having to stay with us this time.
Kind regards

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

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 (15.3 kilometres)
  • Castle Drogo (37.9 kilometres)
  • Tintagel Castle (38.4 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Lawrence House (23.8 kilometres)
  • Lydford Gorge (26.3 kilometres)
