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.

Great site

Stayed here for 4 nights at the end of April 2021. Sunshine but cold wind. Great site with very easy access from main road with electric security gates at CL entrance and good facilities. Large and mainly flat field so no problems setting up. Mandy is very friendly and helpful. Ideally situated for Bude and surrounding area. Thoroughly recommended.

An autumn idyll

We booked for October half term week and chose Burn Farm for its proximity to the surfing Mecca of Widemouth Bay. We were not disappointed by either the site or the surf and found many other interesting and scenic spots nearby, whether for walking or visiting. Mandy was welcoming and helpful in arranging the best pitching for us given the stormy conditions and this meant we were sheltered and able to sit in the awning daring the weather to do its worst. Although it was the end of October the temperatures were still well into double figures! Our little dog enjoyed the woodland walk and we enjoyed the spectacle of the resident roe deer stag who did not seem to mind us invading his patch. A delightful week not at all marred by the stormy conditions. Thanks Mandy!

beautiful and tranquil setting

what a gem of a site ; lovely welcome on arrival, nothing too much trouble for Mandy (owner), given a great spot to camp in our motorhome, very private site with good access to all the usual Cornwall hotspots - we visited Bude, Padstow, Tintagel, Port Isaac etc., good woodland dog walk on site, we were lucky enough to see a baby deer on 4 occasions as he came across the campsite at roughly the same time each evening. Although the weather wasn't great over the 2 weeks of our stay we did have quite a few days of sunshine and made the most of them by staying on camp in the sun. We will certainly be back and can definitely recommend this beautiful campsite.

Peace and Quiet

Mandy and Brian were very friendly and we were able to obtain some lovely tomatoes from them. As a working farm I was very pleased to note the boundaries are well marked and the site is situated in its own sheltered field complete with wooded area which is ideal for dog walking. This site was ideal for us, peace and quiet is becoming more and more hard to find and although situated on a working farm, we would not have known if we were not told. A short drive to Bude, (Morrison’s and Lidl Supermarkets). Widemouth Bay is nearby if you take the short route to the coast. Access is very easy with a good mettled road from the B3254 to the site. Excellent “Dark Sky’s” location complete with owls. We are looking forward to our next visit, a real gem for anyone who wants a “no frills” site. Highly recommended

GLAD WE RETURNED AGAIN.

We were so pleased to return to one of the best CL. sites we have been lucky to stay on. This was our forty time at Burn Farm and it was so good to find the standards so high. We were welcomed by Mandy and after a chatty catch up , we set up in glorious sunshine. Unfortunately , the previous few days had been wet and caravans who were there before had not applied common sense. There were tracking ruts in the centre of the field. Not clever. However, with the sunshine and light winds, it all soon dried. Burn Farm is so convenient to so many of North Cornwall's beautiful beaches and attractive countryside. It's only a few minutes drive into Bude where most of essential shopping can be done. We enjoy the peace, beauty, and warm welcome of this site so much and only wish that we could visit more often. Many thanks to our hosts.
