About

Looking for a peaceful holiday experience in West Cornwall? Come and spend some time with us at Wild Camping Cornwall! We have a small exclusive site with 4 independent pitches available, all offering different camping and glamping solutions. Whether you are a single person, a couple or a family, looking for a quiet time and wanting to spend time in nature, get in touch to book your holiday with us.  All pitches are spaced at least 25m apart amongst a newly planted woodland (planted in 2018) right in the heart of West Penwith. Ideal for those on a walking/cycling holiday, or those wanting a more off-grid, authentic camping experience. We are proud that no vehicles are allowed in the camping field during the stay, however parking is situated near the entrance and campers will allowed vehicle access to the pitches on changeover days only.

We don’t have electricity on site to help the enjoyment of the Dark Skies Area in which we are located and to keep the experience as close as possible to wild camping.

Nearby are some of the best golden sand beaches in the UK, Sennen Gwynver, Marazion, Porthcurno and a littlest further afield Praa Sands, Godrevy, Gwithian. Due to the trees being still quite young the pitches can be exposed to wind, so we recommend campers to come fully prepared. However the breathtaking views offer a one-of -a-kind experience. The proximity to walking paths allows you to explore the stunning, wild Cornish landscape.

The arrival time is from 3pm to 5pm on Fridays and Mondays, Greg will welcome you on site and show you around. Once settled in, you can sit by your campfire in peace and tranquility watching the views and feel the breeze wafting off the ocean.

Facilities
In the whole site there are:

  • 2 x compost toilets
  • 1 x hot showers
  • 1 x washing up sinks 
  • fire-pit available for each pitch.

Firewood
We run a coppice and woodland management business from different sites in Cornwall during the winter months and that allows us to provide a 1 bag of wood for campers for free at arrival.
However if you need more wood you will be able to buy it from us or feel free to bring your own.
If you will be in need of extra wood at any point of your stay, we will offer firewood at a rate of £10.00 for a bag delivered at your tent.

Fire Procedure:
It is possible to light fires and a fire pit will be prepared before your arrival in your pitch.
Please if having fires or using cooking equipment, be aware of fire dangers and possible carbon monoxide poisoning.  Use BBQ’s and cookers outside your tent only and make sure your tent is pitched at a suitable distance from the fire pit and also be aware of high winds blowing sparks onto tents. Ensure the fire is put out before going to bed.

In case of emergencies there are emergency fire buckets of sand and water available.

Wild Nature
Lots of native tree species have been planted on site, wild flowers and plants, which arrive in early Spring attract butterflies and rare invertebrates. The variety of birdlife in the area is unparalleled with coastal and inland birds, and many rare species stopping off on migratory routes to and from Europe. Particularly worth looking out for the Barn Owl, which flies around the fields at dusk! 

We Don’t Offer
Being this a genuine Wild Camping experience, there is no electricity in the camping field. We also ask campers to play acoustic music only  and until 11 pm, as a way to respect the nature of the campsite and … the neighbours.
We also don’t allow dogs or camper vans.
We apologise but we currently have no facilities for disabled people on site.
And.. sorry we don’t have bike stands, but bikes are very welcome in the campsite.
