Reviewer: Mrs mouse 15 reviews from this member

 We made a late booking for the Easter weekend due to a good weather forecast. We booked a hard standing ehu pitch at a very reasonable price which was on a terraced field so was level, well maintained and a very good size.

This is a peaceful and quiet site, my husband could hear the sea in the background. No ball games allowed in the camping field but there is a small play area near the entrance. This may not be ideal for younger children as they'd need accompanying but for us as an older couple it was ideal and contributed to the peace.

The facilities were always clean and warm, plenty of showers and toilets. Showers were push button and didn't run for long but we'd chose this over ones you have to pay to use. The dish washing area was at the back of the block along with a chemical disposal area. There is a laundry room near the reception but I can't comment on this as we didn't use it.

This site is in an ideal position to walk directly onto the South West Coast path with Widemouth Bay in one direction and Bude the other, both with stunning views of the coast. You can also walk out the entrance, cross the road and down some lanes onto the Bude canal which was also an enjoyable walk.

This was our first time staying at Upper Lynstone and the first time visiting Bude for my husband, I've not been to Bude since I was a child and we had days out here on the beach. It was lovely to see the sea pool on the beach is still in use as I have fond memories of swimming in it as a child.

This is, without doubt, a campsite which will be on our list of places to return to, we loved it here.

 Most impressed with this site & spec for the units around the camp site size.

Toilet blocks were well clean impressive look.

So close to Bude only a 10 minute walk.

Ideal for coastal walks.

Certain to return.

 This is a great site with welcoming staff, a useful shop and quality facilities;

Good individual levelled plots, but maybe a little small; quiet and peaceful.

Good location on edge of Bude, on coastal path and 200m from canal path that runs all way to the beach.

Reviewer: Lucy and family 9 reviews from this member

 This is a well-run site in a lovely location.

Pitches are allocated on booking. Due to lack of availability when booking, despite booking in January for August, we only had a choice between 2 grass with electric pitches - one right next to the toilet block N1 on site map, or N4 which we chose.

We were advised on booking that the pitch was on the uneven side (slightly sloping), but we were disappointed to find dried-out bare earth covering the whole area where our awning had to be pitched (pitch was not big enough to place caravan other than in one position).

Perhaps we were following on from a trailer tent with non-breathable groundsheet, but it was unpleasant to have bare earth both under and all around the awning for our 2 week stay.

We didn't complain as there didn't seem much that could be done to remedy the state of the grass by this stage, and we knew from booking that the place was completely full that Covid summer.

Our pitch as well as having no grass on half of it was also very much on the small side, compared to others eg 15 - 20 opposite us. Many people must re-book year on year for the best pitches (in high season anyway).

Views from higher up site are good; there is good access to the coastal path for coastal path to Bude or you can walk down the road into Bude, or go the other direction to Widemouth Bay.

Beware of high winds as others have said; the proximity to the cliffs can make for strong winds although many pitches are well-sheltered or lower on the site.

Would probably not return due to the state of our fairly small pitch on this visit, unless we could be confident of a better pitch.

Reviewer: Richar 1 review from this member

 The campsite was great, but this was an unfortunate trip, which we booked many weeks in advance in order to be sure of getting somewhere nice.

We originally booked 6 nights, but the forecast for May 20 and 21 was so windy that we cancelled for those first 2 nights, and the owners graciously gave us a refund, and we stayed in an inn in Bude instead.

This meant we could enjoy May 22 locally, with quite nice weather. Then May 23 was awful (one 40 minute walk before it rained), and on May 24 the weather was worse than forecast, the wind broke 8 rods of our hub tent alongside the campervan, and so we left with 2 nights of our booking unused.

Nevertheless it is a nice site with good views and easy access to the beaches at Bude, and friendly staff, so we would go there again in good weather.

 Easy access to coastal path and short walk into Bude Town.

Lovely countryside location and toilet and shower block was very clean.

Would recommend site.

Reviewer: Bigoldbob 3 reviews from this member

 The reception was very frosty, minimal information given, and seemed a lot of bother to even let us have a site map, not even details of what was around.

Allocation of pitches is hap hazard, small outfits on big pitches, and big outfits like ours on a small pitch that even on blocks couldn't be levelled, wasn't going to go back to reception as would rather go find some hens teeth !

It is all rather cramped in, and no problem if you want to park 3 feet from another outfit to get a view as had been seen. No sense of safety and the boys on mowers ought to learn to slow down, let alone use a Strimmer without flinging grass over the hedge onto your pitch !

Suffice to say won't be returning, better places to go locally.

Reviewer: Daniecamper 4 reviews from this member

 We have had a very enjoyable 5 nights at Upper Lynstone. The pitches are incredibly well maintained and the fences which divide them were great, we have stayed in sites where other tents get a little too close for comfort, and this was not possible here.

The facilities were always immaculate. There was one occasion where the toilets were disgusting, but this was not the fault of the management, but some rather inconsiderate campers who can’t clean their own mess, it was quickly rectified.

The shop is well stocked and there is also a wide range of options in Bude. It’s a short walk to the beach, pubs, and other attractions the seaside town has to offer. The coastal path also takes you to Widemouth Bay where the cafe does an amazing breakfast’

The only issue we had was that the top field where we were staying could be quite exposed to the wind, but we sort of expected this with a site so close to the sea!

 2nd time on this beautiful site and for a change we had the weather on our side. The campsite itself is one of the best we stay at price, facilities, pitch size, etc, they are all just what you would wish for. Shower and toilet blocks are always clean and tidy. The pitches are massive, so even with our big air awning up and the range rover parked on the pitch, there's still lot's of room to bbq etc. The coastal walks are beautiful and no better place to sit and watch the sun set at the end of the day.
