Why stay here ...

Moorhaven Farm CL is a small 18 acre smallholding with sheep and lambs in the fields adjacent to the CL and pigs and free range chickens who wonder the farm and yard. The CL is in an easy to reach rural location away from traffic noise where the pace of life slows considerably and with views of open countryside, woods and farm land. Opportunities to see various types of wildlife including badgers, deer and a variety of birds including birds of prey can be seen when exploring the forestry commission woodland which is adjacent to the CL. The CL now has 2 hardstanding pitches.

The CL site is open farmland with wide ranging picturesque views to Dartmoor, Bodmin and Exmoor in the distance and is an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area. The CL has a slightly sloping grass site with ample space for a quiet, relaxing and peaceful stay. The slope is not excessive and can be easily managed by normal methods of levelling. We have water from a bore hole with up to date treatment and sterilisation and a chemical waste disposal point for cassette toilets. We are unable to provide electric hook ups at this time, but we do however provide battery charging at the farm and allow generators to be used under strict Club rules. Seasonal farm produce is available from us and local farms. We welcome well behaved dogs and children.

There is a local shop and pub within a short distance of the site and the nearby seaside town of Bude offers supermarkets, shopping and restaurants as well as a range of attractions and activities. The North Cornwall Heritage coastline with opportunities for surfing, swimming, sea and fresh water fishing and other water based activities are but a short drive away.

Opportunities for walking are available on sections of the west coast long distance path, Dartmoor and Bodmin moor, as well as local footpaths.

The historic market towns of Holsworthy, Tavistock, Launceston, Bodmin and the designer shopping outlet at the Atlantic Village is only a short drive away and our CL is central to a wide range of places of interest whatever the weather.

Peaceful location

Moorhaven Farm
Lovely peaceful site. Denise was friendly and helpful and the dogs loved the nearby forest walks - even finding a place to splash about in the river.

Break away from the hustle and bustle

Moorhaven Farm
We made a late booking, calling Denise only a couple of hours before arriving at this hidden gem of a site for a one night stay. We were made very welcome, and although the weather was not brilliant (hill mist and fog!) the site, surrounded in lush green fields and woodland was perfect for us to relax for the evening. Molly(the retriever) came and checked up on us in the morning, leaving us to enjoy a very late breakfast. With no blue sky but a warm morning none the less we decided we would definitely return and give ourselves more time to explore the surrounding countryside, maybe bringing our bikes next time. Many thanks Denise, best wishes and see you again soon... Nicola and Glenn.

Moorhaven Farm
My wife and I have just returned from Moorhaven Farm after a glorious 10-night stay, post the lockdown and we could not have wished for a better place to have chosen. Deniese & Molly (her golden retriever) were great hosts and nothing was too much trouble at all, she would visit daily to make sure we were all ok and would say when she was going shopping "was there anything that we would need picking up" We had lovely fresh large eggs when we wanted them and at a very good price too. The site is a fenced off field, gently sloping and backing onto further fields with our 'local neighbours' being Deniese's flock of sheep, of which many have names! The site is so peaceful and overlooks woodland. A 3-minute walk down the (quiet) lane, takes you on a 3.5 mile walk (out and back) down a very long tracked road heading towards a manor, then a further forestry track, surrounded by glorious woodland. The site has basic facility's of fresh water via a bore hole, chemical waste disposal point and full recycling facilities and does not have EHU. For us, this was such an ideal CL, if you are after all 'bells and whistles' then this CL maybe not for you, but if you want peace and quiet without any hustle and have plenty of space without too many other units, then this could be for you! We will most definitely be returning to visit Deniese and Molly soon... Huey & Carolyn

Perfect piece and quite

Moorhaven Farm
Wow we can't believe this site was not fully booked in August, it was perfect for us and our two dogs Ray & Deniese were very welcoming and full of local knowledge (especially for dog friendly places to visit & things to do) The site has great views over the local countryside, with a nice walk into woods just a little way down the quite lane. Access to lots of places in North Cornwall & Devon was easy as was access into the site with a long car and twin axle caravan Next time we visit the area we will be sure to stay here.
