Details

Facilities

There are loos and hot showers at either end of the site and an extra, larger shower block, too. Every tipi has a lantern and box of utensils, along with rugs and a few simple furnishing (see website for details). Campers can re-freeze their own ice packs using the freezer in our reception. There are standpipes and water-containers throughout the site. The site’s proud to be off the National Grid, so you can really get back to nature here. There’s the lake, paths, streams and woodland to explore. Boats and lifejackets can be borrowed. Fishing is popular, as is cooking the catch on a campfire – campfires should be raised off the ground.

Suitable For

Campers, tents, campervans, couples, families, kids, groups – yes. Caravans and dogs – no.

The Owner Says

A woodland valley folded around a clear, spring-fed lake created from the old Tregildrans Quarry. Our tipis and tent pitches are dotted about this secret 20 acres just inland from the North Cornish coast near Port Isaac.

Social Distancing Measures

We are working hard to introduce new measures to refelect best practice in terms of socail distancing this summer. We are able to offer 10m + spacing between pitches and tipis for most of our camping, although in a few areas this may not be possible. We're still trying to work these last pitches out. We are going to be doing increased Covid-19 cleaning of loos and showers thoughout the day.
