Sandparks Campsite: Level pitches with sea view

General

  • Wild camping pitches with sea views over Widemouth Bay beach
  • A five-minute drive from Bude; half an hour from Tintagel
  • Pub, shop, restaurant and surf hire all a couple of minutes' walk away

Ever dreamed of waking up to a sea view? Or perhaps stoking the flames of a campfire as the sun sets over the waves? Sign up for a bit of both with a stay at Sandparks Campsite, a friendly, informal pop-up site with wild camping pitches overlooking Widemouth Bay beach in north Cornwall.

Those in the know will no doubt recognise this name as being one of Cornwall’s top surfing beaches – and as well as viewing it from your pitch you can also get down there to hit the waves whenever you fancy from here. And it’s not just the beach that’s handy from here: a pub (with top-notch Cornish ales), a restaurant (with fresh seafood) and a shop (with local meat and fish for your barbecue) are all a mere 50 metres away from the site. There’s also surfing kit hire available for those who don’t have their own board.

If you fancy exploring a little further afield, it’s worth noting that this is a fine spot for getting out to walk on the South West Coast Path or to spend some time roaming around north Cornwall. Bude is about a 40-minute walk or five-minute drive away and you can get to the likes of Boscastle, Tintagel and Bodmin Moor within half an hour’s drive.

Life on site is pretty simple, but guests will have access to a waste disposal point, a washing-up area and well-maintained toilet/shower facilities. Barbecues and campfires are both permitted at this laidback spot, as are visiting dogs.

Please note

Guests are advised to bring a good quality flashlight with them as parts of the park are unlit.

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

No bachelor/bachelorette parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Single-sex bookings of 6 or more people (excluding couples) are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

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

    The location of this campsite was amazing! Check in was really easy & super friendly. When we arrived mid-week and pitched our tent it was relatively full but not crazy - the amenities were ok for the number of people on site at the time, however over the next few days heading towards the weekend that changed - there were people pitching up and parking all over the place - there were far too many people then for the number of showers and washing up facilities and it wasn't a very pleasant place to be - two days later most had left and it was back to being a decent number on site. Whilst I understand they don't want to have allocated spaces for people it would be really useful to peg out pitches so people have enough space between tents and campers - it would also then allow people to see if there is room for them or not! Glad the weather was hot when we were there as only one of the two heated showers were working!

    Where do I start about how FANTASTIC this place is... Me and my 13yr old daughter (Camping Virgins) thought we wld camp for 4 nights. We had an amazing time, showers are warm, toilet block fine and clean, the washing up facilities perfect and there was a freezer to leave ur stuff in. Everybody on site was lovely. The ladies running it deserve awards as sooo friendly, helpful and just lovely to chat away to. 5min walk to the beach. The beach house restaurant over the road did amazing food. The surf shop also very handy. More importantly my 13yr old daughter made friends, had fun and she has already told me this was better than the 5* spanish holiday she just come bk from with her dad and we are doing it again there next year!!!! So there we go... Must visit place to stay and camp!!!! We even bought an extra night to stay an extra day as so happy there. Oh... The sunsets were frigging amazing!!!

Local attractions

Widemouth isn’t the only bit of coastal Cornwall that’s easy to visit from here. Sandparks is also in a handy spot for outings to Bude (five minutes’ drive), where another top surf beach beckons, along with surf lessons and a sea pool for more gentle swims.

Elsewhere along the coast, you could stop by in Boscastle (20 minutes) for a stroll around a traditional fishing village, or explore Arthurian legends at Tintagel Castle (half an hour) – perhaps also stopping by at the mystical St Nectan’s Glen (25 minutes) to see if you can spot pixies as you walk to the waterfall.

Turning inland for a while, there are some great walks to be done on Bodmin Moor (25 minutes), or you could delve into the area’s history at Davidstow Airfield and Cornwall at War Museum (15 minutes). Other options for entertaining the kids might be the animals at New Mills Farm Park, the puzzle-themed attractions at Hidden Valley or the characterful residents of The Gnome Reserve and Wildflower Garden – all are about a half-hour drive away.

Must see

  • Tintagel Castle (20.3 kilometres)
  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (33.5 kilometres)
  • Rock Beach (37.9 kilometres)
