 Lovely campsite very well kept.

Toilets are old but very clean and a new block just built at bottom of site.

Farm shop and cafe amazing.

Our only downside there was no dog walk and the road A39 alongside was to busy to walk our pups

 Lovely, clean site. Would recommend and stay again if in the area.

There is plenty of room between each pitch.

Toilets and showers were always clean, with hot water and good water pressure. The site had provided extra toilets and showers to help with social distancing, we didn't use these and never had to wait to use the facilities.

The shop was very well stocked and have a camping shop, we were able to have our calor gas exchanged.

Lovely views from the top of the campsite.

There's a great playground, but as our children are older it wasn't used.

You can hear some road noise in an evening, however this wasn't an issue for us and didn't disrupt our stay.

 We loved this campsite. It was clean, well maintained and small. Lovely views of the Cornish countryside.

Excellent on site shop, camp shop and cafe.

Lovely kids playground.

Very clean toilets and always hot water in showers.

We were sad to leave.

Good location for Bude and Tintagel.

Friendly owners.

 We visited Cornish Coasts as a family for our first visit to Cornwall and we were not disappointed by this site.

Lovely staff, a clean and well kept site and a great location for getting to all the local amenities.

The cafe and shop are an absolute bonus and produce was both local and well stocked; the fresh bread was very welcome too!

We were on a sloped pitch which was a minor issue, but not one that forced us to want to move, though I am sure if we had asked on arrival, this would not have been a problem.

We were also beside the children's playground which was perfect for our children to keep them occupied but close-by. It did mean we had to accept older children using it until later, but it was always quiet by 10pm.

The toilet and washing up facilities, although limited (two washing up sinks, three toilet cubicles, a wash basin cubicle and two showers in the ladies, for example) were never busy at all.

My only other point is this campsite is close to farm animals so there were sheep and cattle calling at times in the night - we wore ear-plugs so were not massively affected.

Overall, a lovely place and one I would come back to for sure!

 What a wonderful site. The staff are very professional and friendly. The facilities are in good order and looked after. Nice play area which our grand daughter enjoyed.

Good location for local attractions.

A site we will be visiting again.

Reviewer: Littlemisswednesday 3 reviews from this member

 We've just returned from a five night stay at Cornish Coasts and can honestly say it's the friendliest site we've ever stayed on.

The owners go out of their way to make you feel at home and are on hand all the time to help (seriously, the shop didn't even seem to have opening/closing times, they just pop up whenever you need them!). The evening when we arrived was very windy and we were struggling with our awning (and two very small children!) - Kevin appeared to help as he'd just looked at the weather and thought we might need a hand.

Our pitch was up at the top of the site with views right out to sea and beautiful sunsets. It's only about ten minutes into Bude (which is lovely - lots of little shops, cafes and pubs) or down to one of the many glorious beaches.

The facilities on site were also great - the toilets and showers were spotless and I didn't have to queue once. Plus, they're a bit quirky which our toddler loved! There's also a good playground and free wifi in the shack by the shop (a little undercover area with games/comfy chairs etc). And the wifi is actually very good - fast and reliable, which is unusual when camping!

All in all we had a fantastic stay and will definitely be returning.

 Very friendly and welcoming. Amenities are great and the location is fantastic with some stunning view.

Both myself and my daughter always enjoy staying at this site. This was our first time in one of their static caravans as we are usually in a Tent. Very clean as always very impressed with this Site.

A great site whether in a Tent or one of their static caravans.

 Just back from a 5 day stay at Cornish Coasts Campsite.

Delightful site. From the moment we arrived we felt very welcome. The owners were on hand immediately to offer any assistance they could. I was on my own with my two youngest children and if I'd needed help it would've been there.

The site remained dry even during a sustained period of heavy rain.

Great site shop with everything you could possibly need. Shower block was always very clean.

The owners were very attentive and they genuinely wanted us to enjoy our stay. We borrowed boogie boards and wetsuits and spent a lot of time at the very local Widemouth Bay beach surfing. Not having my wife with us I fed the kids on Cornish pasties and fish n chips all week. Not a salad in sight! Try the specialist pasty shop in Bude. Forget what it's called but overlooks a small park. Brilliant pasties and probably other stuff.

Great trip. Despite the weather.

 We have just returned from an 11 day stay at Cornish Coasts and were overwhelmed at how friendly and approachable the owners were. They could not do enough to help with anything we asked and were always on hand if there was a problem.

On one occasion - where a youngster had had an accident (not caused by the campsite) and suffered a nasty cut to his forehead one of the owners took the upset parents and child to the local minor injuries unit whilst the others looked after the two sisters. This went above and beyond the call of duty and showed a caring for their customers. This is just one example of their helpfulness.

Another example was the efforts they put in to trying to help campers with their set-ups in particularly windy weather conditions. I am not quite sure how many tents they saved but I know they were busy.

Our particular camping circumstances were slightly out of the norm and from the minute we rang up to get a quote we knew we had picked a good site. On arrival we were shown to our pitch which was nicely tucked away in a corner and a tree line away from the park - ideal for our three children (ages 5 - 8) to stay occupied on whilst we pitched and set up.

There was an EHU set up at every pitch although we didn't need to take advantage of it so can't comment on costs etc.

The park itself has a swing set with slide, a separate swing set, a little tykes play set up and a football goal with plenty of balls around the place. Our children loved it and spent many happy hours on it making new friends.

The site is one of the cleanest I have been to in 5 years of camping and the showers didn't have that 'grassy' feel that many have or a mingy looking mop bucket tucked in the corner (it didn't need it). If there was a technical hiccup (such as one of the lights being out one night) it was fixed as soon as the owners were notified.

The showers (I can only talk about the ladies!) are quirky with 2 shower cubicles and 3 toilets. The children loved the toilet seats (especially the beach and the cow) and whilst there was sometimes a queue for the showers this is expected. The shower cubicles themselves were big enough for me and my two youngest to stand in whilst they were showered one at a time which makes life easier for parents of young children. There were also a number of hooks behind the door which is often a missing necessity in camp site showers. The showers were also free which is getting rarer these days.

The washing up facilities were adequate-looking although we didn't use them and again these areas were kept clean and tidy. There is also a washing machine and dryer which we used a couple of times. It cost me about a tenner to do a non-colourfast wash and dry but that is because I paid for the option of a longer wash and then dry. You can actually get the basics done for half that price.

The location is also ideally placed on the A39 and within easy reach of Bude, Widemouth Bay and many other parts of Cornwall.

Would I recommend this site?? Definitely and already have done.
