Bodmin Moor Camping: Moorland location

General

  • Small, friendly site on Bodmin Moor, 25 minutes' drive from Bodmin
  • Half an hour's drive from south coast beaches and Eden Project
  • Peaceful location for walks, stargazing and wildlife-watching

Stargaze by night and take on cycling routes, mountain climbs and moorland hikes by day… at Bodmin Moor Camping, you won’t be short on things to do in the outdoors. Indeed, this simple, back-to-basics site is right on the Bodmin Moor and 25 minutes’ drive from the town of Bodmin when it’s time for eating out, shopping or going behind bars in an 18th-century jail museum.

With such a remote and peaceful location, splendid rural views are a given, but you’ll be far from cut off. The site has easy access to all sorts of Cornwall attractions and activities – the Eden Project and the south coast are both around half an hour’s drive away, and it’s about a 45-minute drive to the north coast for visits to Newquay, Tintagel and Port Isaac.

Closer to home are bike rides on the Camel Trail and other quiet cycle paths, fishing at Colliford Lake and Bodmin Moor hikes including climbs up Brown Willy (nine miles away). Outdoorsy time on site might involve getting a blaze going at the communal firepit (with a stack of wood provided), exploring the site’s woods and stream or looking out for the deer and badgers that often pass by. A distinct lack of light pollution often leads to some excellent stargazing after dark, too.

Reception is unmanned after 8:30 p.m.. Please inform the site while on your way there should you expect to arrive after this time, so that the team can provide information about your unit/pitch.

    Friendly, warm and welcoming, beautiful house with lots of animals to say hello to. Was greeted by a puppy named Ted and we almost cried he was so cute. Definitely recommend to anyone who wants something slightly quieter than your average holiday, we managed to see so much of Cornwall as it’s fairly central. Although inaccessible by car, it’s a 2min stroll down through a field.

    Disliked: 

    I don’t mind the fact that there’s no showering facilities, my only drawback would be the toilet, it’s a little on the small side and not comfortable.

    Lovely host and location. Feels secluded and is very quiet, surrounded by trees and a small stream. We enjoyed an evening Bbq on the provided firepit watching bats fly just over our heads and listening to owls. Small but perfectly formed.

    It was perfect for us, You can pick where to pitch your tent, we camped under a big 180 year old Oak tree, the hosts were lovely and friendly and helped transport our kit Down to the pitch in a trailer on back of their Quad bike as the pitch is down a slope. There is some beautiful woodland with a stream to explore. The composting loo was clean and didn't smell bad at all. The animals were all really friendly. Hosts are happy to advise on walks through the moorland. A beautiful scenic calm and tranquil site we will definitely be booking again

Local attractions

It’s tricky to run out of places to ride your bike around here, and there’s something for the mountain biking fans among you too, because the Cardinham mountain bike trails (10 minutes' drive) have runs for beginners and pros and Woody's Bike Park (35 minutes) continues the adrenaline-induced cycles – so carry on with shredding up the trails.

For a little less of the land and more of the water, Newquay (45 minutes) will let you take the steering wheel (or paddle) on your chosen watercraft or spend a day at the beach. And for more waterside scenery, Colliford Lake (10 minutes) has plenty on that front.

Historical places, yes please… go for walks around the woods of a Victorian country house at Lanhydrock House (20 minutes) or spy on the shore from the Tintagel Castle (45 minutes), which is on its own island out to sea. Look into an old slate mine in the Carnglaze Caverns (15 minutes) and when you’re done with those history book pages, you could turn your attention to the slightly more futuristic rainforest biomes at Eden Project (half an hour) – with whizzes down the zipwire on-hand for those adventurous sorts.

Must see

  • Eden Project (11.8 miles)
  • Tintagel Castle (13.7 miles)
  • Cornwall's Crealy Great Adventure Park (14.7 miles)

National Trust

  • Tintagel Old Post Office (13.1 miles)
  • Lawrence House (13.8 miles)
