An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty near the North Cornish coast

You’ll find some of north Cornwall’s best bathing and surfing beaches within easy reach of our Bude Club campsite. The campsite boasts a prime location in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty between Boscastle and Crackington Haven. Bude lies nine miles to the north, while south are Tintagel and Camelford.

After a day spent soaking up the sun on the beach our Bude campsite is the perfect place to sit back and relax and enjoy the fantastic views over rolling countryside. Bordered by hedges, the campsite has a separate field and you’ll find a recreation room in the facilities block and a small children’s play area opposite reception to keep younger campers entertained while on site.

There’s a pleasant walk to Crackington Haven over fields and stiles from site where you’ll find a sandy beach and an abundance of rock pools. The nearby fishing port of Boscastle is worth visiting. Learn about the legend of King Arthur in Tintagel, enjoy a cliff top walk to the castle ruins and Merlin’s Cave. Just south of Tintagel Trebarwith Strand is a popular surfing beach and dog-friendly. Port Isaac, made famous by TV’s Doc Martin and Boscastle, a delightful fishing port with white washed cottages, steep narrow streets and alleyways, should not be missed.

North of Bude campsite, Widemouth Bay and Blackrock Sands is fabulous for surfing and sunbathing.

The traffic noise here on the A39 was bad.

This review is for Bude

The traffic noise here on the A39 was bad. The local pub is only a mile away, but I would not risk walking along the side of the main road to get there. As a dog owner I like sites that lead directly out onto footpaths and bridleways, or woodland. The nearest open ground to walk the dog was Davidstowe some 5 miles away. As a professional driver I like to park my car up and not have to use it every time I leave site. I think I was misled by the photos in the Big Site Book, as it showed a picture of the beach and I assumed it to be closer than three miles away. Yes the coastal walk was nice but yet again you had to drive to get there. I did not let any of this spoil my holiday in any way. I met some lovely people, both campers on site and the local population. We visited lots of places, including The Eden Project, Lanhydrock, Cotehele and Trelissick, but for me the, The Lost Gardens of Heligan take pride of place, truly outstanding.

This review is for Bude

Your site information states that "there is a pleasant walk over fields and stiles to Crackington Haven". This is not only misleading, it is wrong. To access nearest footpath you have to walk along the side of very fast, straight stretch of busy main road-Atlantic Highway, which is dangerous for an adult and certainly so for a child or dog. Site states has a dog walk. This is a joke- about 100yd of narrow open fencing next to a hedge open both ends. There are good surfing beaches to the north and lovely stretches of coastal path.

This review is for Bude

Warm welcome from wardens.gave out information on the local area and places to go.The site is a nice base and not too far from Bude town.(take plenty of change most car parks are payable). It is very traditional (no ball games) so 13 year old a bit put out,not us though.does have a table tennis table.good base for days out.bude beach is good but the sea does go out far.the sea pool is a great idea. Shower block is clean and tidy, nice hot showers, if not a little on the small side.did sign up for wifi connection but not very good. Would return.

Calling this site "Bude" is a bit of poetic licence. Bude is over 8 miles away.

This review is for Bude

Calling this site "Bude" is a bit of poetic licence. Bude is over 8 miles away. No buses stop outside the site, so you have to drive and pay for parking. The pub is not an option as the walk is down a VERY busy main road (Atlantic Highway). So everywhere has to be a drive away. Quite a strong smell of sewage on site. Strong winds blow up the valley from Crackington Haven. Most of the time on site was therefore spent inside the caravan unfortunately, Site was clean and tidy and pitches were mown immediately after they were vacated, ready for the next occupants.
