Rosebud Farm Touring Park, St Teath, Cornwall;
7th - 10th July

Rosebud Farm Touring Park is quite unlike any other touring campsites we've experienced. We have never before been welcomed by campsite owners with a cup of tea / coffee and a 'getting to know you chat';  like visiting new friends.


Terri and Jon took time to explain the history and philosophy of their site; their plans for developing it further and were obviously interested in hearing about our motorhome experiences. They showed us round the site and suggested a pitch that would accommodate our motorhome, car and trailer. It was a terrific pitch, with all the essentials close at hand (electricity, water, waste) that satisfied us completely. As glampers, rather than campers, that's quite something.


This is an adults only site, which we were happy about, with a very friendly attitude to dogs. There was plenty of free space on the lower part of the site where they could roam and play free, subject to adequate control by owners. Our two yorkies loved it.


The views across the hills from our pitch was breathtaking.


The toilet block was spotless and perfectly adequate even if temporary. A new, permanent block is nearing completion which will include a laundry room.


We stayed at Rosebud Farm as a stopover visit to Cornwall, on our way home from 12 weeks touring in France. It was a relaxing and peaceful stay. I can imagine this as a place and site we'd return to for a longer, more relaxing stay in the future.


The site is well situated in St Teath for Port Isaac (Doc Martin's Portwenn),  Padstow, Tintagell and Bodmin; an excellent area - well worth a visit.
