Bundu Camping & Caravan Park, which is situated on the edge of the beautiful Dartmoor National Park and a short distance from the popular town of Okehampton, is a quiet, charming campsite offering a brilliant base to holidaymakers looking to explore Devon and Cornwall during their motorhome and caravan holidays. The park is half a mile from the A30 main road, which gives you easy access to all of the surrounding area, including the north and south coasts of Devon and Cornwall.
One of the most charming campsites in Devon, Bundu Camping & Caravan Park has a total capacity of 38 pitches, which can hold nine tents and 29 caravans, motorhomes or campervans.
There is no shop at Bundu, nor facilities for laundry and washing up on site, but guests will find a garage a short walk from the site where they are able to stock up on their holiday essentials and more.
Being on nature’s doorstep, the most obvious thing to do when staying at Bundu Camping & Caravan Park is to explore the local area. Dartmoor National Park is filled with trails and open spaces for walking and cycling, while a wide array of organised activities also take place within the park. These include guided walks and cycling activities, with a range of difficulty levels to cater for the super fit down to the 'doing it because you feel you should be' group! There's also horse riding and climbing, plus wild camping on Dartmoor, for those looking for an even more authentic outdoor experience. Geocaching and letterboxing, a modern take on orienteering and treasure hunting, are great fun for adults and families on their motorhome and caravan holidays in Devon.
Away from Dartmoor, guests staying at Bundu Camping & Caravan Park will find they have the surrounding region in the palm of their hand. For those headed to the coast, it is worth remembering that the north Devon and Cornwall coastlines are favoured by surfers owing to their exposure to the Atlantic breeze, while those looking to swim in a calmer sea should head to the more sheltered south coasts, which also feature stunning cliff-top walks and amazing scenery.
Outdoor lovers who wish to avoid the coast will find the Cornwall Area of Natural Beauty, home to Bodmin Moor Wildlife Park, as well as lakes and streams where fishing is allowed, a short drive south of this campsite.
Holidaymakers who want their fix of the city during their stay at Bundu Camping & Caravan Park can easily reach Plymouth or Exeter. Those who want to leave their vehicle behind can travel the short distance into Okehampton and take the bus or train to either town, both of which have shopping centres, restaurants, and a lively night-time scene. Okehampton is quieter, but has shops, including a supermarket, pubs and eateries for those looking not to venture too far from the site. The Museum of Dartmoor Life and Okehampton Castle are the main tourist attractions in the town, and are definitely worth the trip if you’re in the area.
For a quiet escape in an unspoiled expanse of Devon, with everything you could possibly want within easy reach, Bundu Camping & Caravan Park is a great choice for your campervan, motorhome and caravan holidays.
Approximately 7 miles to the south is Lydford Gorge an impressive site of a valley naturally carved into the hard Dartmoor rock, well worth a visit at any time of the year.
About 32 miles NW is the coastal area of Bude & Widemouth Bay, an excellent place for beach lovers and surfers alike.
Travel 18 miles south on the A 386 and you will pass through the picturesque market town of Tavistock. Follow the road on to Yelverton then branch left on the B3212 for about 6 miles and you arrive at the bleak and uninviting town of Princetown, home of Dartmoor Prison, a dark grey unforgiving captivity. A reminder for all of us to stay on the right side of the law.
Drive across Dartmoor on the A386, ignore all the beauty spots with strange sounding names and arrive at Plymouth, take the family on a boat trip around Devonport Dockyard and see the Navy ships in dock.
