Why stay here ...

A warm friendly  welcome awaits you at Burn Farm Adult Only CL, set on our small working family farm. Our quiet, secluded CL, on the North Devon/Cornwall border is an ideal location for touring both counties with the coastal town of Bude approximately 5 miles away with both sandy beaches and rugged rocky coastline, ideal for both surfers and beach lovers or walkers and siteseers.

Bude itself offers a good range of shops including supermarkets, a leisure pool, bowling alley. leisure centre, a golf course and numerous restaurants and country pubs.

The South West Coastal Path can also be accessed from Bude which takes you either north towards Clovelly or south towards Boscastle and Tintagel. Approximately 7 miles away there is also a small cinema. The Tamar Lakes Country Park is approximately 7 miles away which offers watersports, course fishing and a 3 miles cycle track which can also be walked.

RHS Rosemoor is another popular attraction approximately 20 miles away along with the Eden Project which is approximately 40 miles away. Numerous National Trust Properties are also within easy reach as is Exmoor and Dartmoor and the larger shopping centres of Barnstaple, Plymouth and Exeter. The south coast of Devon or Cornwall is also within easy driving distance, with Looe, for example, being approximately 45 miles away.

The site is adjacent to a large woodland walk which is a haven for wildlife of all kinds and is made up of a wide variety of trees and one of the main reasons many of our visitors return to us year after year. Our visitors are welcome to take their dogs into the woods, as long as they are kept on a lead and all mess picked up, and a dog waste bin is provided at the entrance to the field.

On approaching our farm entrance you will clearly see our Burn Farm sign along with the Club CL sign. The site is down a tarmac drive, with passing places. Please call at the farmhouse (NOT the bungalow) at the bottom of the lane, before entering the site. The site gateway is 11 - 12 feet wide.

Our site is approximately one acre with the first quarter of the field being hardstanding (grass over stone chippings) where metal pegs are required for awnings, which is ideal for motor homes and for wetter weather. This makes us an ideal out-of-season CL.

We offer full recycling facilities and also a ground level chemical disposal point. Information Packs are available for all our visitors and seasonal home grown produce is for sale at the farmhouse.

Golf course less than 5 miles away.

Our site is ideal for bird watching and star gazing and the area is perfect for geocaching and we are geocachers ourselves.

WiFi access is free and subject to availability. If not available at site is available by farmhouse.

Coarse fishing is available on the Bude Canal which is about 4 miles away.

A CL’s CL!

Burn Farm
Burn Farm is what CL’s are about. Basic facilities, (but all you need), friendly owners and easy access. The site is generally peaceful but there is some occasional noise from farm machinery but then it is on a working farm. Some of the pitches are hard standing, some grass. The CL has it’s own small wood which is great for walking the dog although boots are advised when the weather is wet due to rain or heavy dew. Bude is lovely and about 10 minutes drive on good roads and access to other tourist spots is also very good. (We were in a 7.2m motorhome). Enjoyed our stay!

Exceptional Summer Holiday 2021

Burn Farm
We found out about Burn Farm CL when Mandy replied to our online request for availability of a CL in North Cornwall in August and September. From the moment we arrived we were so grateful to her for getting in touch with us. She was friendly and helpful and gave us all the information we needed not only for the site but for places of interest to visit in the area. The site definitely ticked all the boxes for us - quiet, well maintained, good access to the water and recycling and elsan points; as caravanners we were allowed to choose any available pitch on the grass and decided to go for the one at the far end - still within easy reach of the EHU. We enjoyed some beautiful sunsets, and the only noise was from the birdsong or the sheep bleating from time to time! It was easy to drive into Bude - a beautiful spot that we fell in love with; we also enjoyed the beach at nearby Widemouth; travelled no more than 30 mins by car to other beautiful places such as - Hartland Quay, Clovelly and Boscastle - the latter having the most delicious Cornish ice-cream! There were a number of different supermarkets a short car drive away. We had the most wonderful 12 nights at Burn Farm and will most definitely be booking again - not only a super place to stay but such a reasonable nightly rate - even at High Season. Thank you Mandy for all you do to make Burn Farm such a great CL.

Quiet and Relaxing

Burn Farm
Enjoyed very much my stay here. Mandy was very helpful when I arrived. Gave me the code for the gate and showed me to my pitch.Excellent value at £13 /night with wi-fi and all facilities close by. As a walker, it was close to the coast path and weather was very good for 5 out of 7 days. Lovely walks from Crackington Haven to Widemouth Bay, also C H to Boscastle( bussing the one way and walking the other way on both walks). Also was able to launch my inflatable kayak( £5 day permit) on the Bude canal. A good 2.5 miles of navigable waterway to Helebridge. Also walked from Boscastle to Tintagel, and drove to Port Isaac . Thoroughly recommend.Will certainly return! HUW Lewis

Quiet, Easy Access, Good Facilities. What more could you want?

Burn Farm
A truly wonderful site and we are struggling to think of a better site that we have stayed on. Access is easy. We left the A30 at Okehampton and came up via Holsworthy and found the route to be very easy all the way to the site. As others have said the site is quiet and flat with plenty of space. Disposal point is good and recycling facilities are well organised. There is a wonderful walk in the wood that adjoins the site. The electric gates provide added security and can easily be operated from the car window so no getting out and fumbling with padlocks and chains that we have encountered on some sites! Bude and Widemouth Bay are close by and Boscastle, Tintagel, Sandymouth, Crackington Haven, Hartland and Clovelly are all within easy reach. We will be returning.
