After reading reviews on this site we were wary of going! Especially once we have received the email from the site (only a few days before due to arrive) advising us about the fine for non-breathable groundsheets and the need to take your own toilet roll! But after a phone call we agreed to lift our groundsheet daily when we went out to let the ground breath and not get fined. It was a bit of a pain but it was a compromise.

SO. Off we went! And I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. The site was quiet, and friendly. The kids loved the playground, which was very close to the camping field. They also loved the shell craft workshop which for 7 each kept them entertained for an hour one damp afternoon. At night we saw the milk-way and during the day often we just chilled on site.

The facilities are basic, but from a scout leader, they are much better than scout camps! every day I had a hot shower and only once had to wait. And that was on a sunny evening when most people had been to the beach and wanted to wash down.

As far as the cleanliness of the facilities. They were spotless! Every morning a warden came round with a jet wash and washed the whole set of cubicles down which left everything looking and smelling very clean.

Bude is a half hour walk away (a bit longer with little legs!) and its a lovely town with 2 beaches. There are quieter beaches within 5 miles north or south which I would definitely recommend. It did get very busy (summer hols!) but this just meant that some days we only left the site at 3pm, as driving into Bude early on a sunny day is bedlam! There is a big Morrisons very close for shopping. The site shop had bits and pieces but didn't stock much.

Overall we were happy with the site, it did us fine for our first visit to Cornwall

Just back from a two night stay.

Having read the reviews we were prepared for a basic site but even so!

Arrived and tried to find camping field - the grass was so long at the entrance that the sign was hidden. On arrival at camping field all pitches are steep and grass very long. Wasn't ideal - particularly this morning in the rain. One short trip to the toilet block and shoes ended up soaked through.

Showers basic - didn't mind 'tin roof and cobbled together from stuff from the farm' feel, but wasn't impressed with no drainage and standing in half a foot of water from my shower whilst trying to shower and dry self and a rowdy 3 year old while water floods out to the ante-shower area that is supposed to be dry!

Washing up facilities adequate, used the undercover one and there was plenty of hot water.

First night there was us, 3 other tents and 2 resident caravans (apparently staff). Second night about 4 touring caravans arrived. Despite this, facilities were never cleaned once. Don't think they've been cleaned all year. There is a new toilet block half way up the field (new for this year) we had to ask for the water to be switched on so the toilet would flush but they wouldn't turn on the water to the showers. Despite being new, this wasn't clean either. Several months of dead insect life in the hand basin.

Kids play area was decent enough and seeing the chickens, donkey and sheep took up an interesting 10 mins, but even my animal keen 3 year old didn't want to bother with a second viewing.

Got the distinct feeling that the guests in the surf pods and cottages had a very different experience.

Location was ideal for visiting Bude which is approx 5 minute drive, but downside is A39 runs along the top of the camping fields so traffic noise all night. Lidl and Morrisions about 3 minute drive.

All in all, won't be rushing back!

Stayed last year in September. Ground was damp and there is a sloping gradient so I slid a bit.

I had a good rest. I was alone no one else was there. Facilities were good but basic. Line of toilet sheds. Washing sink showers. Clean. Everything worked ok.

The site is close to a coastal road so I could hear some traffic but only occasionally and it wasn't heavy.

Bude by bike is 10 minutes away. Down a hill which is not challenging but gears are useful. Bude has a Morrisons.

As the website says it's a proper camp site. Grass sun the wind sun mud if it's wet.

It's not a holiday park. Urgh and I hope to go back again.

Having read some of the sites negative reviews here, it was with trepidation that we booked for a three day break on this site to visit Bude. Both of us have worked at camp sites in the UK and abroad as wardens and are used to the expectations and comments of clients, ranging from the sensible and practical to the unrealistic, and in a lot of cases, extremely unfair.

Expecting the worst, we found it easily, were impressed with the beautifully planted entrance drive to the site and nice welcome from the owner. Okay, for those of us who like to be pampered, you won't find that here. You won't have lots of pamphlets throughst into your hand and a 30 minute briefing of where everything is! Lets face it, you never remember half of it anyway, and the pamphlets end up not being read. We were left to find our own way to the non electric pitch, and once there found it to be really spacious, on a shallow slope. Lovely views of surrounding countryside, and a practical if very basic toilet and shower block. Tip for those who have reported negatively on having cold showers - they get cold because of safety electric cut outs when the pressure of water reduces, particularly in mornings where the main toilets and showers down hill are being used, leaving little to find its way uphill to the block serving the higher pitches. Not difficult to work out, if they don't heat up, go to the bottom block - simple. We weren't bothered by anyone, staff or otherwise - okay, as wardens ourselves we enjoy chatting to clients, giving them local information when requested, having a laugh, being seen around the site etc, BUT this site is extremely well priced, without bells and whistles, and offers basic, efficient amenities, provided you are not expecting hotel service, and can use your own eyes to locate facilities! Good atmosphere, met some lovely people there, and will definitely visit again, because we love Bude!

As a family of 3, 2 adults & 1 child, we have just come back from our second 2 week stay at West Grove Farm campsite. We have absolutely no complaints whatsoever about this site, it is a fabulous place to stay & you are left alone to get on with things but if you need any help with anything at all then there is always somebody about to help. Peter, the owner, is a lovely guy & very accommodating. The showers & toilets are always clean & tidy, each pitch is quite a size & will accommodate any size of tent, there is a small shop on site for any essentials plus there is a shell craft shop where you can make your own small animals out of shells or cover either a photo frame or wooden trinket box with shells that have come from all over the world. It's brilliant. & there is a small cafe as well. Our 10 year old son always makes loads of friends of all ages & we all never like our last day before coming home as we know we will miss the place & the people. I can't understand why people put bad reviews about the place as we can't find anything wrong with this campsite. There is always toilet paper in the loos & I have only ever had one cold shower in the two years we have been coming here plus there is plenty of washing up sinks that all have hot water & it's the cheapest place to stay that we have come across so far ! We can't wait until we are back there again next year. & I can't stress enough what a good campsite it is.

Having booked the Camping site with ease through the website I was subsequently contacted by Peter (Site Owner), providing confirmation and useful details regarding arrival and the site. My Sat Nav pinpointed the site perfectly, using the coordinates and not post code as advised. The entrance is well signed off the Atlantic Highway. The road into the main field is wide enough to easily pass others. We were lucky enough to have several friends made on previous visits staying the same time in the school holidays. All pitches are of a very generous size, with no risk of over-crowding during more busy periods. This is our third visit. The site is being constantly improved and already has 20+ new hookups, provides a fresh-water drinking outlets, a fully plumbed toilet block and three heated showers, ample sinks with loads of hot water, and wifi- This is the real rustic camping experience which our family loves, with those little conveniences to make life easier. Peter is a top bloke, just a call away if you need anything - Nothing is too much trouble, visiting the site frequently to replenish stocks and carry out any required maintenance. The site location is ideal, very rural, yet just a 5 minute drive from the town and sea-front (or 20 mins. Walk for the more ambitious. ) Bude has two beaches and another three nearby, we always go to Summerlease for the children. We had a week, and access to the town and the rest of Cornwall is simple and fast from the site. In conclusion, we enjoyed a great stay again from all angles, highly recommended to camper's. Our daughter loved the owners dog Tess and spent hours taking it for walks.
