Excellent site, showers and toilet block were immaculate, great for dogs, plenty of space on pitches, access to campsite very easy being just off the main road but very little noise from it, shops and beach are not far being next to Bude and Widemouth Bay the latter being dog friendly all year, very helpful staff will visit again *****

Welcomed on arrival by friendly staff. Shown to the pitch which was nicely separated from others.

Staff very helpful and happy to assist.

Toilet blocks were clean as too were the washing up areas.

Bude itself was a short drive away with a few supermarkets to choose from.

Site kept very clean.

Shop well stocked.

When we arrived at BudeMeadows Campsite we were shown to our pitch after a quick check in procedure in which they operate a secrutiy gate and you are then showed to your pitch around the one way system.

The pitch itself had plenty of room for our trailer tent and car.

The children's park which had a small football pitch and entertained my 12 year old son and husband on occasions for a while, my son made some great friends whilst playing in the park, the park was closed by around 9pm at night to stop the noise and allow everyone to relax.

The heated out door swimming pool was fun with no lifeguard present and although on the small side was never really busy.

The shop is well stocked with daily newspapers and fresh croissants and rolls.

There is a bar on site and also a takeaway which we didn't use either of these facilities so cant comment on them.

The indoor children's playroom had a pool table, 1 arcade machine and a football table.

The toilet and shower blocks were kept really clean and I noticed them being cleaned at least 3 times a day.

The site isnt far from Widemouth Bay Beach and the parking there is reasonable price, also close to the seaside town of Bude. Whilst we were there we went to Barnstaple this is only around 90mins away and is a great town, We also visted the Milkyway Theme park which is 30mins away a great day out for all the family.

Our only criticism of the site is that I feel that there isnt enough showers with quite a few people queueing in the morning. The site although is in a great position the traffic from the A39 main road at night can be a little noisy. Although this wont put us off going back again as we had a fantastic time.

We have just returned from a fortnights stay at Budemeadows. The site is located just off of the Atlantic highway, and is a short drive from Bude and Widemouth bay. You could walk to either location but the roads didn't have footpaths so we always went by car.

Parking on the beach at Widemouth increased in increments up to a maximum of 5. 80 for 24hours.

We always found free parking in Bude, for up to 1hour, which was plenty for our needs.

There is a Sainsbury's and a Morrisons in Bude. We went to Sainsbury's first because it is our usual, but the parking at the store is horrible and you then have to walk along a sloping covered walkway downhill to get to the store, but uphill with your shopping trolley to get back to your car. The next time we needed groceries we went to Morrisons!

At Budemeadows we stayed in the back field so we had perfect access to the swimming pool, Grumpy Pete's bar, playground, games room, shop and take away, but we were far enough away that none of these facilities disturbed us if we wanted to sit quietly on our pitch. This was just what we wanted. Another plus for this field was that it is further from the road and there was no noise from passing traffic which other reviewers have mentioned, however some of the pitches on this field (including ours) were not level so if a perfectly level pitch is important to you make sure you ask their advice at the time of booking. The slight slope didn't really bother us and the owners helped us with blocks to level our unit so it wasn't a problem.

The pool was one of the reasons for choosing this site and it did not disappoint. It was lovely and warm, even when the weather got chilly.

The shop was great for basic groceries, reasonably priced and open for good hours.

We didn't make much use of Grumpy Pete's bar, but the homemade cakes were delicious!

The toilet/showers were in two blocks. One by the pool and one at the top of our field. Despite the site being full we always found both blocks clean and well stocked. The showers were free and the water temperature could be adjusted to suit your requirements, although sometimes the water pressure seemed a little low.

I liked the separate wetsuit rinsing areas as the main showers and sinks weren't clogged up with sand.

We made use of the laundry facilities once during our stay which was useful.

The dish washing areas, one at each toilet block, were always clean and had big deep sinks. Again sometimes the water pressure in the main area seemed low.

The owners and all the staff were always friendly and helpful, I've already mentioned helping to level our unit, but they are also lent us a brolly when the heavens opened and gave us recommendations for what was a delicious meal at the Brendon Arms, Bude. They are a wealth of local information. Just ask and they will help you find the answer.

We have already booked to stay at Budemeadows next Summer.

If you like a campsite that is in between the basic and the large commercial ones then this is for you. The pitches are large. We had a pitch on the far side of the campsite which meant we had no noise from the popular areas like the swimming pool and playground we were also away from the main road which was a bonus. However the negative to this is that the pitches in this area are not particularly level. All facilities were very good the children's playground, pool and in door and outdoor games areas were widely used by my children. The toilets/showers although old were in good order and plenty of hot water and very clean. We ate in the take away area one evening food was ok burgers could have done with some salad!

Now local information which you might find useful we used Morrison supermarket not far away. We also found a nice fish and chip shop in Widemouth Bay and if you want a treat then go for a walk in the Wier wildlife centre lovely panoramic view of the Bay and the went for a lovely meal overlooking the lake afterward.

Days out: We went to the Eden project which we enjoyed, slightly disappointed with the Dinosaurs Unleashed exhibit. We also visited Menick Theatre on storytelling day (this needs to be booked up in advance as it gets very popular). Well worth the entry fee of 4. 50 for adults and 50p for kids.

Overall a really good time. Thank you Budemeadows.

A lovely site, children loved it.

Pool a bit battered in places but clean enough and the kids loved it. Toilets and showers old but clean, my daughter loved the beach hut doors on the loos, in the main block, this block was the furthest from our pitch though and the closer one always had a queue.

Didn't use the food van as it seemed to be mostly fast food.

Grumpy Pete's bar was a lifesaver on a night with torrential rain! Staff friendly.

Shop had everything we needed and fab 'cheap' pocket money gifts for the kids.

Quite annoyed when campsites fleece you for extra money to freeze your ice packs. Unlike other sites we have used that either have freezers for you to use for free or a tiny fee, Budemeadows won't let you freeze your own, you have to use theirs at a 1 deposit per ice pack and a 50p charge to freeze each pack. A small thing but a bit tight!

Kids on the site did whizz round past our tent on roller skates/scooter/bikes and skateboards, we were on a slope so they were quite fast!

Wide mouth bay was lovely, a great pub on the front called the Bay view inn with views of the beach, great food and a trendy feel!

We had a lovely holiday and it was as I expected, doubt I would use it again though.
