General

  • Family-run site a short walk from pubs in Ashton and Breage
  • Three miles from the beach, harbour and restaurants of Porthleven
  • Playground, licensed shop and electric car charging points on site

The original Elysian Fields (as smart sorts who know their Greek mythology will be aware…) was the paradise awaiting those who’d led a particularly virtuous and/or heroic life. No need to prove your own good behaviour if you’re coming to stay at this Cornish version, although it does make a splendid resting place for those who’ve heroically battled with a long drive...

Seven acres of serene space make up the Elysian Fields site, which lies between the little villages of Breage and Ashton and has some smashing scenic views towards Tregonning Hill, as well as distant glimpses of the sea to whet your appetite for a trot down to Porthleven beach, three miles away.

Pitch up here and you’ll also be able to stroll along quiet footpaths to the local villages – both Breage and Ashton have friendly pubs that serve food and where canine pals are welcome to join you. Folks seeking fancier fare can head down to Porthleven’s restaurants, while self-catering types are welcome to stick around and gather round a barbie or campfire; fire baskets are available to hire from reception.

Also on site are a playground, a small shop/off licence (open in high season) and a goodly number of eco-friendly bits and bobs including solar panels, recycling facilities and electric car charging points.

Please note

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Tony and I are always happy to read that our guests had a good time. The children's park has been a big hit, plus being able to have fires to toast those Marshmallows. We try our best to make everyone feel welcome, and really like to give local advice on where is worth visiting etc..

    Great location. Easy to get to far South/North and West Cornish coast from this location. Peaceful site with good space between campers, even though it was peak season when we arrived. Jackie, the owner is friendly and very hospitable. When we arrived there was a clear note on the door about where to pitch as Jackie, who also runs a B&B on site had gone for supplies. Smooth check-in once we had pitched up and Jackie had returned, where we were given site instructions and a WiFi code which worked within range of the house. Facilities are basic, with mainly chemical toilets, but we loved that there was also a male and female compost loo. There are proper shower blocks for male and female, which whilst basic, do the job and were kept clean despite rain and cut grass whilst we stayed. There is a small kitchen annexe on the back of the house which Jackie is happy for campers to use to wash up, and a freezer on site for campers to use. Particularly useful for those without electric hook-up. Site gently slopes in non electric field, so choose your pitch carefully, but nice sheltered plots. Great little park with climbing frame/slide for kids to use and standpipes in both electric and non electric fields. Local village is only a short walk away and everything was easy to get to within half an hour drive maximum (Lands End, Sennon Cove, St Michael’s Mount, St Ives, Falmouth, Kynance Cove etc. Great base for a holiday, kids loved the freedom of staying here and we’ll definitely be back sometime soon! 😊

Directions

Local attractions

Having gazed out over Tregonning Hill, you’re highly recommended to amble over there for a closer look. It’ll take you around 45 minutes of leisurely walking to get to the top for some excellent views over both north and south coasts and plenty of historical info on the old mining pits and war memorial.

Likewise, the beaches you’ve glimpsed from afar look pretty fab from up close too. The sands of Porthleven, three miles away, are the nearest, and there are plenty of others a short drive away, including Praa Sands and Marazion (from where you can take a boat or cross the causeway to St Michael’s Mount).

Arty types may like to spend a day in St Ives, half an hour’s drive away, taking in the exhibits of Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden. Perhaps less highbrow but equally entertaining are the Cornish Seal Sanctuary in Gweek and the rides and attractions at The Flambards Experience, both of which are around a 15-minute drive away.

Must see

  • Flambards (3.9 miles)
  • St Michael's Mount (6.0 miles)
  • National Seal Sanctuary (6.1 miles)

National Trust

  • Godolphin (2.0 miles)
  • Penrose Estate: Gunwalloe and Loe Pool (2.6 miles)
