North coast beaches in Devon & Cornwall

From the dramatic sweep of Watergate Bay up to the windswept headland of Hartland point, Cornwall and Devon’s north coast beaches offer something for everyone. Best of all, most of it’s easily accessible by the South West Coast Path.


Crackington Haven

This amazing looking little bay is sheltered from the north by the cliffs of Pencannow and by the headland of Cambeak to the south.

Sandymouth (Bude)

A National Trust car park can lead you to this lovely beach but beware at low tide when swimming can be dangerous.  Life’s a Beach is a great cafe there for you.

Trebarwith with its vast cliffs, dark caves and fine golden sand.  Gull Rock is almost reminiscent of a dog’s head, keeping watch off shore.  This is the sort of idyllic Cornish beach that features in many tourist brochures.

The closest beach to the town with level access from the Summerleaze car park, but also approached via the Downs or from the Canal at low tide.

Daymer Bay

Daymer bay is in the mouth of the Camel estuary and unlike Polzeath has very little in the way of surf…but it is excellent for swimming, windsurfing, boating or canoeing.

Would definitely stay here again, lovely campsite!

Another lovely stay at Woodovis!! Great facilities, plenty to do at the site and plenty of places to visit nearby as well. Would definitely stay again. Loved the pool and the games room. Well stocked shop, and friendly, helpful staff. Had a brilliant weekend camping with friends. Took a picnic to Brentor and had a walk on Dartmoor!

Our Devon home from home

We’ve been visiting Woodovis as a family since 2000. However long our stay, it is always relaxing and welcoming. We’re happy to stay on the site and just relax or use it as a base to make visits too many parts of Devon and Cornwall, for which it is ideally placed. The facilities are always top class, comfortable and clean, and we would recommend the site for short or long breaks.

Fabulous break away

We had a wonderful time at your site. We brought our caravan with us and the pitch size was brilliant, facilities were clean and tidy. Very well organised on arrival. Lovely park, pool, games room and grass areas for the children to explore and play. We can’t wait to come back!

Just relax

The quietest site I’ve stayed on in 30 years of camping and motor homing. Staff are very helpful and very welcoming. Shower block and amenities are always clean. Hot tub and pool are a great addition for your stay. Pizza and hog roast are are good to save the bbq or cooking. If you’re looking for a relaxing break you will struggle to find a better place.

Amazing experience

We had the most amazing, comfortable time camping at Woodovis park. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The site has a heated pool, park for children, table tennis table, games room and food trucks visiting most nights. Also there were circus skills available for children and adults some nights. The site is very well maintained and was extremely clean I would 100% recommend the site to anyone looking to go caravanning or camping.
