Cali has been to Bude

Another good forecast and another weekend away in Cali.  We chose Wooda Farm Holiday Park which is a site that's affiliated to the C&MC, situated just outside of Bude.  We don't normally book large parks, but thought we would try this site as it's out of season and hopefully wouldn't be too busy.

After arriving on Friday we were both unsure of the site as it was so large with holiday chalets, static caravans as well as the touring pitches.  The site also had a shop, restaurant, take-away, cocktail bar, sports hall and nature trails.  Pitches are allocated and ours was fine, probably not the location we would have chosen but it was sheltered.

The weather was glorious on Saturday so we walked to Bude.  Sadly there wasn't a footpath across the fields, but the lanes weren't too busy to walk along.  We pottered around the town and visited the Jaunty Seagull shop where my cousin sells her jewellery.  Katie's jewellery is stunning - KC Jewellery.  We then went for a walk along the canal where there are lots of cafes and craft shops.

We retraced our steps back to the site and went to the bar for a drink before returning to Cali to sit outside until late evening.

Sunday was a lot cloudier but it was dry.  We decided to go to the sports hall for a game of badminton, which was great fun.  We also had a walk around the fishing lake and the nature trail, spotting all the little pixies that had been put into the trees.  There were dozens of them and we were like two kids trying to spot them all!

After quick showers we headed to the restaurant for a meal in the evening.  It rained overnight and as we had to leave our pitch by 10.30am we packed up and left after breakfast coming back home as we both had a lot to do at home.

We will return to the site out of season, but would avoid it during the main summer months as I can image it would get very busy.  We also spotted some pitches we would have preferred and although actual pitches can't be requested they will try to allocate in the same area if at all possible.
