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.

Good base for touring

We used this site as a base for walking the South West Coast Path. The site is within walking distance of Camelford and small supermarkets of Coop and Londis. The latter also has a fuel forecourt. The 95 bus service (Bude to Truro) passes close to the site and there are a number of taxi firms if required. Truro and Padstow are within comfortable driving times The signage for the site is not clear and vigilance is needed if the turn into the site access road is not to be missed. The site is very open with a limited number of hard standings. We were there for the heavy rain and strong winds of May 2021 and found that the grass pitches held up well. The facilities are a little old but all are in good working order and spotlessly maintained. Very limited room for ball games and no playground mean that the site is not ideal for family looking for a long stay option. We stayed for fourteen nights and would use the site in the future.

Great spot for couples

We booked to stay at Camelford for two nights in our motorhome. The site has 13 hardstanding pitches and the rest are grass. On arrival I was greeted by Mick, the Site Manager, and had a very informative chick in process. We were on pitch 50 and found the site had several service points and a motorhome service point. The site is easy to get in to from the A39 and we didn't hear any road noise during our stay. The facilities are quite dated but they were well heated and immaculate. There was a small dog walk at the entrance to the site but I walked up the lane with our dog. You can walk in to Camelford from the site and there are serval handy shops and pubs. For £20 a night for a couple in May I would certainly return. We had a trip to Tintagel, Widemouth Bay and Bude in the two days we were there. Mick and Pat deserve a special mention. What an absolute credit to the club. They made us feel very welcome and were very accommodating. Thank you to them as we would use this site again due to their hospitality.

Quiet site and a good base for visiting the surrounding area.

We picked this site as a convenient base for visiting relatives in Port Isaac. The site is generally on a slope from back to front and if conditions are wet could cause problems if you are positioned on grass. There are some hard standings in the middle of the site but these are usually the first pitches to be taken so if you want one of these, arrive early. Many people have complained about the electricity pylon on site but we had no problems with this. The toilet facilities are a bit old, but they function ok. The dog walk is very small but there are plenty of lanes nearby to exercise your dog(s). The town is a few minutes drive away and has a few shops. We can recommend the fish & chip shop. There is also a shop attached to the local petrol station which is very handy and a golf course close by. If you are expecting a club site with fantastic modern facilities, lots of hard standing, super fast wi-fi and all the mod cons then you will be disappointed. If you want a site that is clean with all the basics you need and is an ideal base for visiting the surrounding areas like Boscastle, Tintagel, Port Isaac and Wadebridge etc then this is the site for you. We will definately visit this site again.

Mediocre Stite

We stayed at this site as it was convient for an event we were attending and luckily managed to obtain the last hard standing. The Good Points: Beautiful views over the valley, friendly wardens and the access straight on to the lane from which you can access a number of footpaths which are ideal for dog walks. All usual service points available. Loved the fairy lights in the trees and the general upkeep of the grounds was good. The Could Be Better Points: The large pylon in the middle makes quite a noise when wet or windy and those lovely views also mean you are exposed to wind and rain. The dog walk is tiny. The toilet blocks are old and tired, and certainly the ladies could have been cleaner - lots of cobwebs in the ceiling and lights, hair on the walls that looked like it had been there a lot time. Showers are not that powerful and the tiles look like they could do with a deep steam clean. The WIFI (free version) is useless but not just on this site! The Wider Area: Camelford itself sadly does not have many amenities and sadly since the Town Council have changed the car parks it is very difficult for any form of motorhome to part (we are under 7 metres and were prohibited from the car parks. The site does however give you good access to some of the North Cornwall attractions such as Boscastle and Tingagel, both of which cater for motorhome parking.
