Trebarwith Strand, Cornwall

Just spent a great surfing weekend in Camelford (not toe), we stayed in a great campsite Kings Acre Touring Park, don’t let the name put you off, it’s a nice sized site in a lovely location.

Camelfords got all you need and its a short walk through the fields from the campsite. Obviously, being North Cornwall, there’s some great beaches near by, we went for a surf at Trebarwith Strand, a really nice beach with a great rocky backdrop and didn’t go for a surf at Widemouth beach near Bude.

On our second day there’s a nice relaxed cycle ride along the Camel trail, an old railway line from Wadebridge to Padstow (aka Rick Steinsville)

We spent the evenings in Camelford, one evening with a BBQ at the campsite then on to the Masons Arms and the second, a bizarre lock-in in the Ghurkha Indian restaurant.
