A rustic, Cornish pop-up site with excellent views and a wild location

You know you’ve got an authentic wilderness campsite when it’s not even there 90% of the year. For those who want rustic, back-to-basics camping, The Little Wild Campsite is the place to go. This charming Cornish site is pop-up and proud, a simple spot that appears in the grassy scrubland every summer, delighting any visitor who pitches up the tent and kindles the campfire.

High on Tregonning Hill campers can peer from their tent flaps and enjoy commanding views across the countryside to the Cornish coast beyond. From its prized perch on the slope, The Little Wild Campsite is the perfect base for roaming through the hills with the South West Coast Path passing a mile or so beyond the field. The beaches and coves that make Cornwall so famous are 5 minute's away in the car – a succession of wave-pounded cliffs interspersed with golden sands, the Penwith Heritage Coast to the west, and The Lizard Peninsula to the east.

While the winning location may draw you to this hill-top haven, it's the onsite atmosphere that really makes the place stand out. All pitches are in one field with a large, communal fire pit at its centre where groups can chat the night away. It’s a short wander to the sanitary facilities, a composting loo housed beneath a turf roof and a shower in its own separate shed – equally rustic but both more than adequate. When the crackle of the main fire dies away, retreat to the comfort of your pitch where you can have a smaller campfire by the tent, toasting marshmallows beneath the star-studded skies.

Once daylight returns there's the rest of the campsite to explore and activities to throw yourself into. A selection of courses include an afternoon spoon carving, gypsy basket weaving and a forest school, run by affable campsite owners Baya and James. And the sheep and pigs that nuzzle the camping field borders will captivate the children for hours.

There’s a good reason that Tregonning Hill comprises part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The views of Mounts Bay are stunning, the location is a dream and this pastoral seven-acre small holding lies in wait for the summer to appear so the pop-up paradise can re-open once again.
