In Your Field
Great Orchard is the original name on the 1878 deeds of this 3 acre field. When we moved here, there were no apple trees left, so 8 years ago we re-planted, and already we get more apples than we can eat every year. The apple trees are at the top of the field, near your Cabin, then the field runs downhill, to a wet, rushy area. This is perfect for wildflowers such as Purple Loosestrife, Yellow Flag and Ladies Smock. We haven't cut hay in this field for several years now, and the long tussocky grass has become a favourite hunting ground for our barn owl. If you walk down the hedge on the left of the field (when starting at the Cabin), right to the bottom, there is easy access to the little patch of woodland. This is a lovely place to explore, climb a tree and paddle in the stream.

Quiet and Charming

Thank you for a brilliant camping experience. We stayed on one of the exclusive pitches with composting toilet, fire pit and gas shower (lovely and hot) - and what a super experience it was. Hosts were very friendly, and we had access to the communal fridge, charging points, and could collect wood and kindling for a small fee (honesty box) at the yard - a three minute walk away from our exclusive pitch. Very quiet and peaceful with beautiful views and great access to Bude and surrounding areas. Would recommend!

Wonderful holiday

We had such a fantastic holiday at Bakesdown Farm. The site was immaculate, as were all the facilities. A warm welcome, but space thereafter to enjoy your own space. Very quiet site with respectful campers. Great to have the use of a fridge as well as access to a freezer for ice blocks which we ended up not really using. Having a washing up sink in our grill was a genius stroke, albeit cold water only. Beautiful, tucked away location. Idyllic. The only issue that stops it being five stars (and I’m agreeing with other reviews here) is there is only one toilet and one shower!! They are just as lovely as the ones in my own house, but at home it’s only the two of us using it! Here there were 16. We will definitely be coming again and try the site with its own facilities. 😍😍

Perfect mini break away

We had an amazing stay in the cabin. It was very well equipped and had everything we needed. We loved how secluded and private the site was. Having a campfire in the evening was so peaceful. The host was really friendly and helpful. We definitely recommend a stay here!

Stunning location, fantastic facilities

We stayed on a simply camping pitch for 3 nights. The site was very quiet as there were only 4 pitches. The view was gorgeous. The shower, toilet and fridge/freezer were all excellent and impeccably clean. The wood, kindling, eggs, ice cream etc were all on an honesty box system which was great. The only thing we’d change was having to walk a short distance on a country lane to get to and from the facilities - it was mostly empty but on occasion a fast car past and this was something we watched carefully with our children.

Wonderful stay in the cabin

Really amazing stay. The owners are very friendly and the location is fantastic. Loved waking up surrounded by nature. The cabin was very comfortable and the excellent stove and warm shower meant we were comfortable even when the weather turned. Can't wait to come back again.
