Why stay here ...

Located in cosy, attractive grounds, Camelford Club Site offers a fun holiday getaway for the whole family. The site puts you within easy reach of North Cornwall, which combines quiet, coastal villages like Port Isaac, Port Gaverne, Treknow and Port Quin. For those who like a bit of extra buzz, the larger seaside resorts of Padstow and Bude are not far away. The famous town of Tintagel is also nearby - here you can experience the rumoured birthplace of King Arthur and a sense of the real Camelot with its ancient medieval castle.

If you prefer to relax or take some time out then situated nearby are Bude, Newquay and Widemouth beaches and Landhydrock with lovely gardens perfect for doing so. The caravan site gives convenient access to an area rich in picturesque countryside villages, each with their own hospitable inn serving real ales and wholesome Cornish food.

For golf lovers, a championship golf course is conveniently placed adjacent to the caravan park, and offer members discounts on golf, food and drink.

Calm Camelford

This was our first visit to the Camelford site and our 2nd site on a 4 site Tour. We have over the last few years visited most of the main club sites in Cornwall and this site is the 2nd to last on our list. Last year we stayed at the beautiful Tintagel site so knew what sights we wanted to see in the local area. This site is smaller and as hoped much quieter than Tintagel. We were pleased with our pitch but wished the the grass had been moved because our trainers got soaked every morning in the early morning dew, something we had not anticipated as the weather was so nice. The site is easy to access and the views are stunning. The Wardens are very friendly and our fellow campers were very respectful of the Covid-19 rules. We also thought it was great to be on a site where we did not have to dodge the usual round of kids on bikes/scooters. We go out a lot so our sons never engaged in that activity thank goodness. Our main reason for choosing this area is that I have totally fallen in love with Bude Seapool and due to swimming pool closures wanted to go there more than ever. Bude was well organised for Covid-19 (we later moved site and so can compare it with other overcrowed beaches). We do have the benefit of knowing which parts of the beach area are quieter though and also where to park out of the way of the main car park. We enjoyed the Camel Trail but did not stop in Padstow as it was madly busy. The other end of the trail was much quieter. The local fish and chip shop in Camelford was really great. Well organised and really good quality fish and chips. So Camelford is on our 'we would like to return' list but the trouble is so is Tintagel, Godrevy and Merrose Farm. The shower block is a little dated, but given the Covid-19 crisis is was well organised with the wrist band system. As on all club sites we have visited this year, with the exception of Malvern Hills, there were always people who went in without the band, or left bands inside the block or literally barged me out of the washing up area, but over all most people are really decent and a pleasure to be around. Well done Camelford

A lovely break

We were very pleased to have made a booking here just in time for the July reopening. Found this to be a very nice little site with easy access, no narrow lanes to negotiate. The Covid arrangements were very good and made clear on arrival. Although there were only 2 female showers and toilets open I never had to queue, suspect a lot of people were using their own facilities. The wardens were great and everything was well maintained and clean, and this is a great base to see North Cornwall. Avoided the main tourist honeypots like Rock and Padstow though, preferred Widemouth Bay and Daymer Bay, both beautiful. Have booked a longer stay in October!

Nice club site

A really nice peaceful and well kept site. Pat and Mick the site managers have made a brilliant effort. We'll worth a visit just spent a couple night but wanted to stay longer.

Good, although not a favourite.

Three nights here, Tuesday to Friday. Site fairly full when we arrived at booked time (16:00-18:00), and inevitably the pitches and hardstandings farthest from the busy road had been taken. Probably best to plan to arrive early. However, I like a grass pitch if it's firm ground. The one we settled on as nearest level available (most slope a bit, some more than others) was unfortunately near the road and a trifle noisy at times, but OK overnight. On the first morning around 7:00 am there was a lot of metal clanking noise, which turned out to be one half of a parkhome being unloaded from its low-loader (for delivery to a site some way down the narrowish access road). Not our site's fault and perhaps part of the rich camping tapestry of camping experience! Or not. Our first day was absolutely beautiful, and we enjoyed the afternoon in Bude by the canal. However the following day was wet, foggy and miserable and promised little better on the third.On leaving I was a little concerned about driving on wet grass, but it was no problem at all. Handy to walk to the filling station on the main A39 for a paper (or food etc) - about 20-25 mins there and back for me, not a swift walker. We didn't actually use the on-site shower block, but all seemed to be suitably Covid-proofed.

Nice visit but spoilt by the few...!

This is our first visit to this site in over 20 plus years and it's not changed much in that time, what has changed during this period of time is the arrogance of certain people/members who seem to think that the Wardens along with other members are there to run around after them and clean up after their dogs which have been allowed to run about out of control generally annoying decent members and also messing on other people's pitches then failing to clear up after the event. The dog walk was left like the perpetual mine field almost daily by people who think that the Wardens (and/or) other people were there to clear up after them. Albeit the weather wasn't the best - a fair amount of rain and mist but that is just your luck whenever you get the "van" out for a trip but it didn't stop us enjoying our break, however the lack of thought for anyone but themselves by these irresponsible dog owners certainly put a dampener on our break. We are dog owners and like to think we are responsible for their behaviour and any mess that sometimes on very rare occasions results in an accident is immediately "bagged and binned" and let's be honest their is no shortage of bins on any club sites so there is no excuse for not picking anything one's dog mess up !!!!! The site was of the usual standard expected and excellently attended to by both the Wardens and their Reliefs, thank you all. The Cozzies
