My partner myself and Lucie our Parsons Jack Russell have just returned from a 9 night stay at the Bude site, the site itself is lovely, well kept and very clean. There are 2 fields the first, the main field has all the hard standings, shower block, washing up facility and the recreation rooms complete with TV (we never used this facility ), the second is a smaller field but is great because it is quieter, there is a path through the hedging to the shower block.

On our arrival 2 days earlier than booked and transferring from the Sennen Cove site (see Sennen review) we were met by friendly member of staff and after explaining our situation were offered any pitch we liked and he suggested a pitch in the corner of the smaller field which proved excellent The shower area is very clean and of a good standard, there are numerous showers, sinks toilets etc there is also a laundry room which provided useful. There is wifi on site but unfortunately it is only accessible near reception, there is little or no mobile phone signal (O2)

Reading previous reviews I feel I must comment on some areas covered.

The dog walking area is poor and we found a lot of people walked their dogs around the field we were camped in.

The site is near the road accessed through a lay by but the traffic noise mentioned is not too disturbing and it soon fades into the background.

The gate is locked at 11. 00pm but this signed and therefore I don't think an issue.

The site is not in Bude it is actually about 8 mile away, but there is a costcutter store about walk away near the The Old Wainhouse Inn and there is a burger van in the lay-by for bacon butties etc.

Over all the site was very good and we were sad to leave, the staff are great but the walking area is not ideal if you are an owner of a large dog.

Just returned from a weeks camping at this lovely site on arrival met by friendly helpful staff site was very quiet so was able to pick are own pitch. Showers were very hot and powerful toilet block was very clean behind toilet block is a games room with small snooker table and table tennis table then a room with freeview television all I can say is what a lovely site made better by the staff they even have printed sheets how to walk to the beach

The site is about 8 miles from bude and only about 5 miles from boscastle site is next to main road but you exit from a lay-by can you hear the traffic yes you do but you also hear the cows, in the next field, birds singing, and great views all in all I lovely site great position and lovely staff its not a modern site but kept tidy clean as thought it was there own 10/10

Just returned from our 1st camping trip and thoroughly recommend this site. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially as this was our 1st foray into camping.

The field was level and the grass fairly short, and a high hedge for a wind break was also useful.The toilet block was immaculate with piping hot water available and a good power output from the shower head. Washing up facilities were also of a good standard, very clean and loads of hot water again.

Booking in and out was easy and quick. Access into the site from the main road is safe due to a long lay-by.Overall we were very impressed by the standards of all the amenities, and would be happy to stay there again.

My wife and I are trying to emulate the BBC programme by driving our motorhome round the UK coastline. We are visiting many sites during this project and this pleasant, level site near Bude is certainly in our top ten so far!

The staff are very welcoming and helpful - the toilet/shower/laundry blocks are immaculate and grass-cutting is camper friendly with no cuttings evident. Included in the facility block is a games and a rest room. There are 100 pitches, electric hookups abound and non-C&CC members are welcome. There is a small shop on site - otherwise it's a drive to Bude or Camelford. There is a friendly pub about one mile down the main road.

This site is ideal for visiting Tintagel and Boscastle, and of course Bude.

The entrance to the site is set within a layby and therefore eliminates the worry of slowing down on, or crossing, the fast A39.

Highly recommended!

We stayed on this site for a week and unfortunately picked the week when it rained in Cornwall. This did not really put a stop to our activities though.

I have noted some of the previous reviews and I am glad that I did not take notice of them! Staff were very friendly and helpful. This was our first time putting up our awning and staff came over and assisted offering advice and tips which was really helpful.

All I can say is that there are some very distinct rules on C & CC sites which you know before you arrive, the staff here point the main ones out on arrival to highlight them so that everyone can enjoy the stay. This is done for everyone's benefit.

The toilets/showers are not brand new state of the art facilities, but they work, they are clean and tidy and I do not understand what more you could ask for.

The site is well located for all attractions. Worth a visit are Jamaica Inn for a superb meal (30 mins away) and Widemouth Bay (10 mins) for its superb sandy beach which has RNLI lifeguards looking after it.

I would definitely stay at this site again, I loved it and so did the kids despite wind and rain.

We've just had 10 days there, &, in our opinion it's probably the worst C&CC site we've visited in 4 years membership, well below par for what we had to pay.

The toilet/shower block was of-course spotless but really in need of bringing up to date. The showers are of the old fixed type, no adjustment made showering small kids a problem & very small cubicles too. The out door washing up facilities were in need of replacing, the taps in particular were loose in the sinks, some having no red/blue markers, ok for adults, but that could be a hazard to younger children

The site manager & staff weren't the friendliest we've come across either, sticking rigidly to the rules, especially re-dog walking on site! It's a definite NO-NO at Bude, you are directed off site to a lay-by right next to the very busy A39, so not really a dog friendly site. The kids play area is also next to the site entrance, which we found a bit disturbing to say the least.

The site shop sells a few bits n bobs,and there's a small local mini-mart just up the road,along with a decent pub
