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
