5 Tips for Camping in Cornwall

Camping in Cornwall can be a fantastic experience. There's a huge variety of countryside and coastline to choose from, and many small campsites along the way with friendly owners and excellent facilities. Here's our guide to camping in Cornwall, and 5 tips to make sure you have the perfect tented getaway.

Choose Somewhere You Can Walk to

There's a great sense of liberation when you visit a campsite but don't have to use the car. Some of the best campsites are in areas you can walk to shops, pubs, restaurants and of course the beach. It's worth paying a bit more for a prime location to allow you really get the sense of being 'away from it all'.

Don't Worry About the Weather

Tents are so good these days, that even the cheapest of the bunch (as long as you put it up properly!) remains waterproof and dry. Sometime the weather in Cornwall can  be damp and the ground wet - but don't let this put you off - as long as you see some sun a great time will be had by all

Choose a Small Site

There's nothing better than pitching up in a field, on a summer's evening, opening a beer and watching the sun go down. There's a growing trend for rustic, small scale sites. Make the most of it by visiting somewhere with fewer facilities down a country'll make so much sense when you get the tent up and sit in the peace and quiet!

Bring Some Mates

If the sun's out, you have some music on, the view is spectacular and you're only a couple of minutes walk from a fantastic beach...what's not to like?
