Bude Camping and Caravanning Club Site

Bude Camping and Caravanning Club Site offers you access to the outstanding natural beauty of Cornwall. One of Cornwall’s leading holiday parks for anyone looking to escape from the busyness of daily life, Bude Camping and Caravanning Club site welcomes tents, motorhomes, and touring caravans, with fully serviced pitches available for those who wish to take advantage of them. In addition, washing up, laundry, and chemical disposal facilities are available across the site, with Wi-Fi internet connection also available for those who need to use their laptop or mobile device to get in touch with family and friends or keep up with what is happening in the world. The park is pet friendly, and is open from late April to late September.

While the park itself offers its own stunning scenery and surroundings, no trip to a Cornwall holiday park is complete unless you explore the area as much as you can. Whether you decide to do this on foot, by bicycle, or in the car is up to you, but you ought to make sure you see as much of the area as possible.

The first item on your agenda will be the miles of greenery and countryside that surround the site. If you want to go further, particularly out to the North Cornwall coast, then taking the car is recommended, although you’ll soon park up when you see the amazing beaches and the array of cliff top walks on offer, not to mention the sights they will show you and the photo opportunities they will provide. If you do want to take a long walk, then the South West Coast Trail passes close by the park.

It is the longest such trail in the UK and will take you along the coast and to some beautiful places. Ensure you are prepared to wake up early and get back late; it is not a walk for the faint-hearted or unfit!

A short drive to the north of the park you will find the town of Bude, which is livelier than you might expect with shops, bars, and clubs offering something for everyone. To the east, Dartmoor National Park offers exploration opportunities aplenty, as well as activities like climbing and abseiling. Tintagel Castle – home of King Arthur – is also a short distance away from the site, while the coastal villages all offer daily trips out to sea with local fishermen, something else that demands an early start!
