General

  • Family-run farm site
  • A mile and a half from the beaches and town centre of Bude
  • Animals to feed and a shell craft studio on site

If you're staying close to Cornish beaches, you might want to do something with your seashells. Such is the state of affairs at Atlantic Camping near Bude, a site so family-friendly it's set up its own shell craft studio for small (and big) sorts to craft their foraged shells into ornaments or use them to decorate bits and pieces like pots, mirrors and picture frames.

Atlantic Camping is a family-run farm site set within 26 acres of farmland, a mile and a half from the surfing beaches of north Cornwall's Bude. The farm entrance is set directly on the Atlantic Highway (the A39, the main road past Bude) so is easily accessible to all vehicle types, but the site part is set well back from the road on the other side of the farm: no traffic noise here.

The planted-out pitches are set among two and a half acres of well-mown grass, with a climbing frame and ball game area for the kids. Atlantic Camping is home to chickens, turkeys, geese, sheep and alpacas; families are welcome to walk around the farm, or to take one of the walks straight out of the farm to local farm tracks and onwards.

Amenities include a washing-up area with four sinks, and a toilet and shower block with six showers and seven toilets, including a disabled toilet and one with baby-changing facilities.

The pubs, restaurants and attractions of Bude town centre are a 20-minute walk from the farm: bring a torch if you're coming or going at night.

    Nice eco site - great for summer

    Disliked: 

    On quite a slope, facilities need updating to warrant the price. No lights in showers. Booked for 2 nights but only stayed for 1. Quite a walk into town and not so great walking back due to lack of street lighting.

Directions


By train/coach:
To Exeter St Davids (EXD) Railway or Coach stations, take route X9 First National Coach to Bude.

The entrance to the site is directly on the main road, between the first and second turnings into Bude town. The entrance is signposted Atlantic Farm (old name West Grove Farm).

Warning: If you are following a satnav, the postcode EX23 8LY will take you to the Bude-Stratton Business Park, the turning of which is 200m before the entrance to the site on the left if you are travelling southbound, and 200m after the site if you are travelling northbound. Please note that the actual postcode, EX23 9TG, will take you off down country lanes, and not the entrance.

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

The beaut beaches of Bude are rightly famed for their golden sands, clean water and surfing breaks: get along to Summerleaze and Crooklets within Bude for surf, and to the National Trust-managed Sandymouth for a quieter vibe via its steep ravine.

The long sands and popular surfing waves of Widemouth Bay are a few miles from Bude, Crackington Haven is within eight miles, and the family-friendly beach of Northcott Mouth is a top spot nearby for rockpooling.

In Bude town, spend a morning wandering around the harbour and Bude's buildings – including the oldest in town, Quay Cottage, and the heritage centre now housed in Bude Castle. Then, perhaps, a pint, lunch or pasty before tackling the local stretch of the also-famed South West Coast Path, from Bude Canal to Crackington Haven, and then further south to Boscastle and Tintagel…?

Horse riding, cycling, ten-pin bowling, fishing, tennis and golf are all available in the region too: ask the Atlantic Camping team for its top tips.

Must see

  • Tintagel Castle (14.6 miles)
  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (19.0 miles)
  • Rock Beach (25.5 miles)

National Trust

  • Lawrence House (14.3 miles)
  • Tintagel Old Post Office (14.6 miles)
