This was our second visit to Hedley Wood, this time staying for 5 nights as a family of four camping. It’s a 10 minute drive outside Bude near Widemouth Bay and the park is set in countryside so it’s lovely and quiet but not too far away from local resorts and beaches. On this site they have a policy of pitching where you like rather than being given set pitches. In a way this is nice and a relaxed approach. You just drive around the site until you find a spot you like.
We arrived shortly after the August bank holiday and found the site quiet and peaceful. We stayed in lower brier on this occasion and had ample room with only a handful of campers and tourers there.
There are two toilet and shower blocks, one at the back of the reception, shop, bar and launderette complex and one up towards conifer bay and upper meadow at the top of the site. Both blocks were kept clean, cleaned daily and I had a hot shower every morning no problem and as we had pitched in between the two blocks we used both facilities, however, I preferred the block at the top of the park.
The staff are friendly and very helpful. The shop is small and holds essentials but there’s a Morrison’s and Sainsbury’s in Bude (a short drive away) if you needed anything substantial. The launderette has two washers and two dryers and are coin operated. There is a bar onsite but is certainly not up to par with club houses on other sites. It’s basic and at the minute probably a bit under utilised but to be honest we were there for some quality family camping rather than going to the bar.
There is a small children’s play area on site too.
Overall, this site is perfect for a quiet get away with clean facilities and a quiet atmosphere. We would stay here again as a family.

We won a break at hedley wood from a raffle prize and as my sister was visiting thought this would be a great opportunity to use it ( mum and I live in Bude)
We arrived Friday and the receptionist wer very friendly and helpful, our caravan was perfect, one double bedroom and 2 twin bedrooms, central heating, plus a gas fire in lounge, 2 toilets, a brilliant shower really spacious
The caravan was absolutely spotless the bedding looked brand new as did all the cooking utensils,pots pans etc
The site in all honesty doesn't have a great deal on it which suited us because we don't have children, because of the time of year the site seemed quiet which was brill for us, very peaceful,
Today in work IV been recommending hedley wood to our customers ( when they have come in to buy pasties)
Im hoping to definitely stay again when we have family down again
Thank you team

We stayed with our two children in a three bedroom caravan, even though the weather was awful outside we were lovely and warm thanks to the double glazing and central heating. All the staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was very good. Would definitely stay again.

We recently visited the Headley Wood site for a week’s holiday in one of the comfort caravans but unfortunately due to the inclement weather decided to come home early.

Although the site and caravan were lovely the fact that even though our booking was for the third week in September the Woodland bar area was closed 24/7 so no meals etc., available and wifi was practically non existent throughout the site. Plus reception closed at 5pm so if anyone wanted to use the pool table in the evening it was impossible to do so as a deposit had to be paid for use of the cues. So these factors also contributed to our early return home.

Also the site is rather isolated so to travel to the nearest resort which was Bude took 20 minutes and hours to other areas. If you are looking for a place to stay and do nothing, then this site would be fine but even though we are senior citizens and like to take things easy, I don’t think we would stay there again, but look for a different venue on the east coast.

We stayed in one of the safari tents. It was lovely not to have to put our own tent up. However, it wasn’t as pictured on the website. That picture had the tent pitched flat on the grass. The two at Hedley Wood were either up a fair few steps or up a steep slope. There was no mention of this on the website. I have multiple sclerosis and so would have appreciated knowing this before coming as I found it hard constantly going up and down. There was a wooden fence on the edge of the deck outside the tent, but I would have been terrified if I had a toddler/young child as they could have easily fallen through the gaps.

The tent was cosy and a fun alternative to normal camping. The bedding was really clean and warm.
The tent had plates/bowls etc but only one very small saucepan and a small frying pan so not easy to cook much. Apart from knives/forks/spoons there was no kitchen knives or scissors which would have been helpful.
Although we had bought washing up liquid, tea towel etc, I hadn’t even thought we may need to bring washing up bowl so we were caught short there, but reception really helpful and found a soft bucket we could borrow which was great.

The nearest toilets were up a very steep slope. Again, with MS this was really hard for me, and the other block was a long walk away (not great for MS either). The toilets were clean. There was toilet roll on the floor but that’s not the fault of the cleaners. We were reluctant to use the showers after previous comments about the cold water.

The shops was small. There were lots of toys but no basics like cartons of fruit juice for the mornings.

The site has potential but isn’t there yet. It is tired looking in places. It is evident there is lots of expansion going on but it’s a bit like a building site in places. The grass was very long so I was glad we weren’t in our normal tent. I’m not sure I would bring it here. It makes a huge difference having short cut grass, particularly when it’s wet.

Our puppy was very happy and enjoyed being given a bed to sleep in and dog food given on arrival which was a nice touch.

Overall, it’s a nice place for a short break, but I would like to see the place tidied up and looked like it was ‘loved’ if we were to return.
