Looking for a peaceful holiday experience in South Cornwall? Come and spend some time with us at Wild Camping Cornwall! We have a small exclusive site with 2 independent pitches available. 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. We are located at the top end of the Lizard, ten minutes from the Helford river, and some of the best cost beaches on the Lizard. Wild Camping is ideal for 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 with a short walk to your pitch.
The pitches don’t have electricity, however we offer you the possibility to charge your phone and electrical devices.
Nearby are some of the best golden sand beaches in the UK, Mulion, Poldhu Cove, Church Cove, Kynance Cove. Near sites are the picturesque village of Helford, Lizard Point, Kestle Barton, Goonhilly Earth Station a littlest further afield Falmouth, Eden Project, St Ives.
The arrival time is from 3pm to 6pm any day of the week prior to have booked with us, Greg or Francesca 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.
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.
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.
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.
Lots of native tree species have been planted on site, wild flowers and plants, which arrive in early Spring attract butterflies and rare invertebrates. There is an heritage garden adjacent to the pitches that is the cradle for lots of wild life, and a big pond is the home for wild birds as ducks and moor hens. 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!
Wild camping will also run different workshops that you and your family can take part in! So please ask us what’s on and we will be pleased to fill you in.We have bushcraft, green woodwork, growing woodfuel, archery, beading, embroidery and wild art classes running during the summer and we are happy to offer one to one workshops as well. All the workshops need to be booked in advanced so please get in touch.

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.
