Wooda Farm is set in about 40 acres of beautifully manicured lawns, flowerbeds and tropical gardens that somehow manages to hide the fact that it's one of the more commercialised sites that I've stayed at.

The site has a lot of facilities including a restaurant, a bar and a takeaway, all set a fair ditsance away from the camping fields in the attractive old farm buildings where's there's also a selection of farmyard animals.

Activities include woodland walks, table tennis, archery, clay pigeon shooting, badminton and a nice nine hole, short golf course which Ell and Hazza loved.

The pitches are level and fairly large. We stayed there on a busy Whitsun week and it was very busy and I remember Mrs Archie asking me to complain about a big fat bloke who kept us awake with his TV (what's that about?) and his snoring.

Nearby is the village of Poughill (pronounced Puffall) which has a nice pub which alas, I didn't get to drink at because, as is often the case in Cornwall, it was shut every time I went there. What's that about? Why are the pubs in Cornwall shut on one of their busiest tourist weeks of the year?

Bude is a couple of miles away, as are several beaches such as Widemouth Bay, popular with families and surfers. Check out Damian, Becky and Chris strutting their stuff to the left.

So, if you want a clean and pretty site with the option of activities but without the 'tackiness' of some over commercialised camp sites then you'll enjoy Wooda Farm. Click here to add your thoughts.
