Please Note:

  • The maximum tent size that we allow to be booked online is 17sqm (around  4 x 4m) excluding guy ropes. This size will only fit on XL or larger pitches so please double check the size of your tent before booking to avoid cancellation and disappointment. If you have a larger tent please email for availability: admin@budblebaycampsite.co.uk

  • 1 tent per pitch only.


  • Please also double check the size of your tent before booking a pitch; if you arrive with a larger tent than you have booked we are unable to offer refunds or change your pitch. Your car must also be able to fit on pitch alongside your tent.

  • We offer special rates for school groups, youth groups, Duke of Edinburgh, etc and can ensure your group is all pitched together. Teachers and group organisers also stay for free. Please contact us directly to arrange.

* For the past several years we have included electricity in the price of the pitch, however with the sharply rising price of energy we felt it was fairer to our customers to change it to an optional extra, to save money for those who don't need electricity during their stay. Therefore electricity is not included automatically with your pitch booking.

Our tent pitches

Very small pitches
(for walkers and cyclists)

Our very small pitches are designed for solo walkers and cyclists (pedal bikes) who don't have a vehicle (car, motorhome or motorbike). Therefore they are only suitable for crawl in tents. There is a designated area for you to pitch up in, but no individual marked out pitches. We have two areas for these small tents, both by the riverside.

Large pitches

Our large pitches are between 8m x 10m and 9m x 9.5m, with both riverside and non-riverside options. 

Super Long pitches

These super long pitches are the same depth as our extra large pitches (9m) but have a longer width of between 14m and 17m. There are 4 available and they are all along the riverside. They are best suited for large tents, although caravans and motorhomes can still fit on them in good weather.

Standard Pitches

Our standard pitches are all 7m x 8.3m, with a selection of both grass and hardstanding options. The hardstanding pitches have a 4.5m wide grass area and 2.5m wide concrete area, making them most suitable for caravans and motorhomes. However, if your tent (including guy ropes) will fit in a 4.5m x 8m space, you could pitch your tent on the grass area and park your car on the concrete. This size pitch will fit a small (2 x 3m approx) tent, but not anything larger.

XL pitches

Our XL pitches are a standard size of 9m x 10m, with both riverside and non-riverside options.

Medium pitches

Our medium pitches are between 7m x 10m and 9m x 9m in size. They are suitable for tents, motorhomes and caravans and are all situated in the centre of the site. If you would prefer a riverside option, please select a large, XL, XXL or super long pitch. This size pitch will fit a small (2 x 3m approx) tent, but not anything larger. 

XXL pitches

Our XXL pitches are a minimum of 10m x 10m and a maximum of 9m x 12m. The majority of these pitches are along the riverside.
