Why stay here ...

By the Byre caravan site is down a quiet country lane overlooking the River Neat and Bude Canal. This is a dog friendly site with superb walks and cycling right on your doorstep.

This tranquil site has 5 hardstanding pitches with half of each pitch being grass to put up an awning if you wish. Each pitch has electric hook ups and two of the pitches have their own water supply. There is a CCEP along with recycling and waste facilities. Situated on the outskirts of Bude it provides wonderful access to the North Cornwall and North Devon Coasts, with plenty of beaches and some of the best cliff walks in England all close by, this is a wonderful retreat and one where man's best friend is welcome as well! (two medium sized and well behaved dogs!) The site itself is situated on a working farm so guests are asked kindly to keep their dogs on a lead.

The Bude canal and cycle way passes yards from the site and you can follow either of these to the centre of town. Bude has a huge variety of pubs, restaurants, cafes and shops, which are a 15 minute walk away, but the beaches of the North Cornwall coast are the must see attraction.

It doesn't take long to discover that Bude is possibly more diverse than any other holiday destination in Cornwall. Most major villages, towns and attractions are within an hour's drive; and because Bude sits on the county border, visitors are free to explore the delights of both Devon and Cornwall at their leisure. Look past the eight main beaches and many smaller hidden coves and you soon see there really is something for everyone.

As it is a pleasant walk to the town centre of Bude, the huge sandy beach is a favourite with children and adults alike, there is an outdoor sea pool, pretty canal, golf couse, splash pool and tennis courts, and you can enjoy all of this without the need of a car! Bude is Cornwall's most northern town and has been a favourite seaside resort since Victorian times. The coastal scenery surrounding the beaches is quite beautiful, boasting some of the finest sandy beaches and the best surfing in England! The town has excellent facilities and a wide selection of interesting, independent shops. This idyllic area has a large amount of bird life for the dedicated twitcher and some wonderful, scenic walks along the South West coastal path.

The centre of Bude is a lively hub with concerts, dances and fetes as well as other events throughout the season, including an annual Carnival Week. The town has a host of pubs, cafes and restaurants to suit every palate and there is a new Visitors Centre in the Crescent car park, a large children's play area, a 19th century canal and a small wharf amongst many other attractions. Bude is also home to the internationally acclaimed jazz festival which takes place each August.

Super Location

Really good location for Bude. Easy level walk into town or onto coast. Only there for a few days so not enough time to explore more. Plenty to do locally. Good pubs, cafes etc. Everything you need on site.Bit of a narrow access road, met two other vehicles leaving despite the 10am departure time so not sure why you have to leave so early as check in is after 2pm? Wasn’t too keen on our pitch (No 1) as we were backed up to large barn wall. Pitches 3-5 are better if you have a choice. Very peaceful. Shame we didn’t see much of the owners apart from a quick greeting by Amy’s mother who was grass cutting on our arrival. Other than that we had an enjoyable stay.

Excellent all round

A lovely site with a lot of thought put into the layout. Plenty of room at each level pitch with grass and hard standing. Easy access to a footpath which takes a very short while to get into Bude with all of it’s facilities, eating places and scenic views. Not far from Boscastle and Tintagle. We shall certainly return if we’re in the area. We have an 8m motorhome so although the access is narrow we had no problem at all.

Lovely place to be

We stayed for two nights with our motorhome and one small dog, it is an easy walk into Bude along the tarmac pathway, really excellent level hardstandings gently terraced with some thoughtful planting to give privacy, large grassed areas in between, I was hoping to keep this site a secret but what the,,!

Great site Great spot

We have enjoyed our stay at this site. Access is down a short single track lane but we had no problems getting our 7.8 motorhome down the lane towing a car. The pitches are level and have great views across the valley. Access to the canal is easy and there are fantastic walks along the coastal path or just a short walk to Bude. Will stay here again.
