Situated roughly 3 ml off the A39 north of Wadebride just past the village of Chapel Amble the site lies within a large tree enclosed paddock well beyond the farmhouse. There is plenty of room for 5 units, is very well sheltered but has no views. There are a number of other fields on the farm, separated from the CL, that accommodate units both with and without EHU. Adjacent to the farmhouse is a toilet, shower and washing machine, although quite a walk from the pitches, and we didn't bother using them. There are also a couple of holiday properties for rent at the farm. The lane past the farm was quiet and suitable for walking ones dog and although there were a couple of footpaths close by conditions under foot prevented us from exploring them. There is a pub in the village a short walk from the site that served food. Wadebridge has an Aldi, Lidl and a Tesco with fuel. There are a plenty of places to visit in the vicinity such as Padstow, St Agnes and Pencarrow House. Good easy cycling can be done on the Camel Trail, either way from Wadebridge. Wouldn't hesitate to use the site again as it appeared to dry quickly after heavy rain.
We were attending the nearby Creation Fest and needed to stay near Wadebridge. It’s a lovely quiet, large paddock with plenty of room. No distant views, but surrounded by trees, so very sheltered. Electric hook up, water and chemical toilet emptying in the field and there is a toilet, shower, washing machine and drier a field away, next to the entrance to the farm. There’s a good pub in the nearby village and a post office for basic supplies. It’s worth noting that the directions in the 2019 handbook listing are incomplete. Travelling from the East/Camelford, follow the second signpost right to Chapel Amble, not the first. Travelling from the West/Wadebridge, take the first signpost left to Chapel Amble.
We stayed here for just over two weeks. A good quiet site generally. Surrounded by trees so no views from site. Quite expensive at £19pn. Most expensive cl we have ever stayed on. The shower/toilet facility is shared with other camping fields for non-club members on site. More than one shower & toilet are really necessary to cater for everyone. Separate toilet from shower would be better too. Washing machines and dryers with honesty box were quite useful during our stay. Recycling and water etc easy although also shared by all others on site so often full and overflowing, even though emptied regularly. Phillip the owner and his family were very friendly and helpful. We visited lots of places from Tintagel, Port Isaac, Polzeath, and lots of lovely little beaches the other side of Padstow. As NT members we could park at various locations and car parks free. A definite advantage as parking is a minimum £5 or more generally per day at popular locations. Walking at Park Head to Bedruthan Steps and Trevose Head, and so many beautiful beaches and walks along this stunning coastline.
We spent 4 nights on this site early June and were impressed with how spacious the site is. As motorhomers we prefer to walk everywhere from the site and the village with shop and pub were easily accessible. The first public footpaths we attempted to go further afield were completely overgrown and impassable, but we eventually found one and walked to Wadebridge. A lovely peaceful site, surrounded by mature trees which protected us from the strong wind prevalent during our stay.
