Thornbury Holiday Park: Elecrtic Hardstandings and camping ground

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.

    Beautiful site, the owners are very friendly, great place for peace and quiet. We were lucky to be there for the hog roast which was great value, with beautiful food! Small bar on site, and a nice place to take dogs too. Lovely walk around the lakes, beautiful surroundings. The fresh eggs were a bonus too.

    Disliked: 

    Miles away from anywhere! No local shop, so make sure you have everything you could possibly need before setting out. Facilities were clean, but could do with being updated. A bit pricey for what you get.

    Quiet and peaceful campsite, chickens roaming around which our kids loved. Loads of space for playing games and beautiful surroundings to have an evening walk. Friendly family run and happy to help if we needed anything. Really enjoyed our stay and will definitely visit again.

    Disliked: 

    Tricky lanes to tow a caravan down to access the site for those not confident especially if meeting another vehicle. Wish there were more families visiting at the same time for kids to play with.

    We had such a lovely time camping on your site, the lakes were brilliant, the site was so lovely and well looked after! The curry van that arrived on Thursday was absolutely delicious and such a good idea. The staff onsite were also so helpful and there little group of farm animals were lovely to see! We would definitely come back! Thank you!:)

    Disliked: 

    The only thing we were slightly disappointed with was the shower and toilet facilities. They could/should be slightly cleaner and better looked after; they are also extremely cramped. If they were modernised and updated this would make the site even better!

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)
