Reviewer: Roposopie 1 review from this member

Our only holiday this year was to camp for 6 nights, we made it to 5 and that was only because we spent as little time as possible on the campsite.

Problems bullet pointed for easy reading.

• sloppy, boggy and overgrown grass field

• no water point(use toilet block or empty caravan pitch)

• unfinished site

• cold swimming pool (meant to be heated)

• no manager on site (given the run around by staff, told by staff that we are all adults here so we can deal with things but they didn't. )

• shower block was smelly and dirty, poorly designed and shot water across the room from the sink taps and the showers leaving puddles of water. No hairdryers or any vanity points for a bit of privacy.

• field was so muddy that cars were getting stuck, one camper was told that they would need to call a local garage to recover their vehicle.

• nowhere clean and safe for the children to play ball games (whole place a building site)

• and to finish off the long list of problems, myself and my husband plus a few other campers left the site very unwell. Dodgy stomachs and throwing up. Our tent had a rancid smell/liquid seeping into sleeping area making us very ill. It smelt like sewage, potentially ruining our tent and making us sick for a few days.

Finally we went as a collective of campers to the reception (6 other customers) to complain to be told that there was no manager on site and to ring the manager ourselves. The salesman for the static caravans was rude and extremely hostile. He couldn't have cared less about us all being ill. We ended up having to talk the very young receptionist through calling her boss to get the situation resolved. He didn't have the decency to speak to us himself but told her to give us a refund for half our stay and any days lost without even hearing the problem. I'm guessing he already knew that there was massive issues with the site.

North Cornwall is a beautiful location, but all in all, I would not recommend even considering this site.

Site is undergoing huge improvements. The new toilet blocks are fabulous, there is a new swimming pool and play area.

A new entrance is well underway (much needed ) and a new reception.

There is a cafe on site and a bar and amusement arcade and small shop which doesn't open much

We were given bar vouchers to compensate for building works which was very nice but they were working away from us so no problem anyway.

We were a bit pre -season but the way they were working it may well be ready for this season !

It will be great !

We'd stayed here in a static caravan a few years ago, but this was our first visit with a tent. The site has had some investment and we were pleased with the new, improved playground as we have young children. Plenty of space in the camping field even during half term, ground soft (pegs straight in) and almost flat! We were impressed that we were allowed to stay for just 2 nights.

Toilets/showers/sinks all good, no problems. We used the heated outdoor pool which is basic but on a warm day a nice facility. Open 9. 30-1 and 2-5.

There is a basic shop, restaurant, bar/clubhouse and arcade. Our children enjoyed the kids entertainment in the early evening. Best to have some cash on you as sometimes cards aren't accepted.

A great plus of this site is you can walk into Bude along Maer lane, about 20 mins to Sainsbury's and edge of town, 15 mins to Crooklets beach. We walked our children to the beach and back with no issues.

Our only complaint is that the site is so laid back, there's no expectation that noise will be kept to a minimum until 11pm. Some children were still playing noisily around the playground until 10pm and the music in the clubhouse was noticeable after 11. If you are trying to get your children to sleep it can be a challenge! Admittedly this was the end of May and it was light until nearly 10pm. Overall a great stay with lovely weather and we would go back again.

After getting stuck in mud last year -vowed never to return ! but lots of emails telling of large investments made tempted me back ! could not see any obviously large changes or improvements-we were given the same pitch that we got stuck in but they have put a lot more loose chippings in the pitch -not brilliant but better than grass. Showers / toilets still not user friendly, nowhere to hang clothes etc - water pressure dreadful -got drowned every morning washing up ! still feel like the poor relation in the camping field, beyond the static presence and ironically the most expensive site of a three week tour of cornwall - there is one thing that keeps me going back to this poor campsite and that is its location- direct access to coastal path -and a 10min walk into town -have to give credit where it is due we used the diner on-site for breakfast twice and a fish and chip supper and the food and service was excellent - cannot say the same for the campsite though.

We had a fairly old two bedroom caravan but it had been well maintained. The shower was brilliant and the general seating area was as you would expect. The tv worked, which made a change from some parks we visited. The little kitchen was fine. You have to realise that everything is scaled down in a caravan. The fridge soon got filled but was fine. We didn't use the microwave. Cooker and storage were all ok. The beds were not top notch. The single beds were lumpy. All the sheets and duvets were lovely and fresh however so that helped balance out the mattress. Overall we were quite happy with the accommodation.

As for the camp there were one or two things we didn't like too much. It is set out in a rather militaristic way. Rows of caravans all the same colour and not much atmosphere.

The pool was nicely heated which helped as the last few days of our holiday were wet and windy. My boys easily made friends with other children at the pool.

There was a bar and an entertainment room and the boys were happy to go to the arcade to meet their friends.

The little shop sold most things you would need at a price but you would need a supermarket for anything other than basics.

Without a car you had a choice of a long boring walk into Bude via Maers Lane or you could, like us, walk along the cliff top which took us straight into Bude. We enjoyed the cliff walk but for those who don't enjoy walking it would be a long drag.

The camp was extremely quiet and peaceful but at night it was poorly lit. A torch would be useful but we forgot ours.

We have just spent the bank holiday at this site and must say it was lovely. We returned following our stay here last year on the recommendation of friends.

The site is well laid out, with plenty room, although it is a free for all with no rules about spacing between tents. There is a lovely coastal walk to the beach and when they tide is out you can walk into Bude, or you can walk into Bude along the cliff top, beautiful either way.

The site facilities are ok, the café is very reasonably priced and the food is delicious, there is also an on site bar, with entertainment for the Children and then the adults later in the evening, with bingo every night :). However the toilet and shower blocks need updating, always clean but looking a bit tired and the pull cord in the shower was a little annoying, having to pull it every few moments to keep the shower going and there was only 1 sink in the toilet blocks to 8 toilet cubicles. But if you aren't too fussy, then this is place to go.
