This well-known campsite under new management is situated just off the main Pentewan Road, close to the Pentewan Valley Cycle Trial, and within a short distance of the Eden Project, Heligan Gardens, and the fishing port of Mevagissey.

We are situated on a quiet, sheltered sunny flat site in a naturally picturesque setting.The site welcomes families and dogs and offers traditional camping without special facilities such as swings and roundabouts. It does boast a modern toilet/shower block which has recently been revamped, and has separate shower cubicles with toilet and basin.

There is with plenty to do and see using natural resources in the area, and many attractions enable car free days as they are walkable from the site.

This campsite, which is well placed for all locations in the St. Austell area, has the following facilities:

Electric Hook ups
New Modern Toilet Block
Disabled Toilet and washroom
Waste Disposal Facilities
Showers (FREE of Charge) with separate cubicles
Laundry facilities
Shop & breakfast baguettes - due 2013

Close by is a Camping and Caravanning Shop, which stocks everything and anything to do with Camping,
including for those with LPG running cars, the facility to top up.

In close proximity:
The Pentewan Valley Cycle Trial - this links up with the national cycle trial, linking St. Austell to Pentewan and Heligan Gardens. It runs along a picturesque valley, where cycles can be hired by the hour. The trail is flat and easy going for beginners and experts alike. It runs along a river right into Pentewan itself, where there is an excellent beach, a few local shops and a St. Austell Ales pub (for connoisseurs of real ale). Pentewan is also the home of a sailing club, which specialises in small dinghies.

Heligan Gardens - a place not to be missed by garden lovers. These lost gardens were re-found some years ago, and are constantly being added to and refurbished, using plans going back a great many years. This was the first cornish works undertaken by Tim Smit of Eden Project fame.

Mevagissey - An old Cornish fishing port, a lovely place to view the sea, and get a whif of fish in the air, mind the very narrow roads. It does get busy, but is well worth the visit and saviour cornish fish and chips. Or for the more gourmetically minded, there are several really good fish restaurants. There are also a model railway and an aquarium to visit. Cliff walks are a must to blow away the stress of an upcountry lifestyle.

A little further afield
The Eden Project - world reknowned domes, and a place not to be missed. Constantly changing and improving, most people go back time and time again.

St. Austell - this old market town, although not at present presenting a great deal in the way of character, is in actual fact larger than Truro (the capital of Cornwall), and is currently undergoing complete regeneration. A place to visit and view the changes over the coming years, as it creeps ahead at it's own cornish pace. Also a good place for stocking up on essential supplies as all the main supermarkets are here.

Fowey - Once the haven of smugglers and larger tall ships, now one of the major china clay ports. Fowey offers beautiful views and many wonderful gift shops, places to eat, ferry trips and walks. In the area of Daphne Du Murier and mentioned in several of her books. Cruise ships have just started to call on this old port, and it hosts the Royal Fowey Yacht Club, great for those with a bigger boat!
