An off-grid, woodside retreat within walking distance of the beautiful Cornish coast, boasting exclusive glamping accommodation and spacious camping pitches

If good things come in small packages, then it’s no wonder that truly amazing things are to be found at this teeny tiny campsite on Cornwall's Penwith Heritage Coast. Home to just two wild camping pitches, a bell tent and an enchanting gypsy caravan, this pocket-sized hideout between the moors and the beaches is one for those looking to get off-grid and back to nature; a place where campfires, coastal walks and late night stargazing are all routine.

In fact, small though the number of pitches may be, the campsite still feels positively spacious. Every pitch has its own, independent area – a whopping 50m by 50m, basically a field for each camper – while an adjacent 12-acre woodland, dimpled by small ponds, gives the place a far wider reach – you can follow trails into the trees and explore the protected wildlife habitats straight from your tent. Facilities, meanwhile, are modest and suit the campsite’s name. There are composting toilets, gas-powered showers and no electricity, though a covered dining area and simple cooking facilities are a welcome treat. Glampers, of course, also have the added luxury of proper beds and furnishings, all ready and waiting your arrival.

The size of the campsite also lends it a wonderfully personable feel. Owner Francesca greets you in the car park and provides you with a welcome pack of logs for the campfire as she shows you to your pitch. She can also help organise activities with you in advance, working with local company ‘Future Tracks’, who provide on-site courses from bushcraft and archery to art and up-cycling courses.

It’s venturing beyond the gateway that really reveals the beauty of this campsite, though. Clamber back inland and across to Watch Croft, the highest point in West Penwith, for dazzling views out to the Atlantic and the ruins of the local, clifftop mines (as seen in the BBC’s Poldark series) or walk the 20-minute valley trail down to the coast. Portheras Cove offers the nearest beach, a stretch of sand between great rocky jaws, while St Ives Bay and St Ives town itself are within easy driving distance.
