Reception and Shop where we bake fresh croissants and bread

General

  • A country escape 30 minutes’ walk from the centre of Bodmin
  • On-site shop and bakery
  • Individual luxury shower rooms

Cornwall may be famed for its savoury pasties, but you can expect an altogether sweeter treat when you stay at Orchard Springs Campsite. The two-acre site is on the outskirts of the town of Bodmin, but green fields and an orchard and stream give it a country escape feel.

The centre of Bodmin is less than two miles from Orchard Springs, and Bodmin Jail, Cornwall’s Regimental Museum, the Bodmin Town Museum and Bodmin’s Obelisk are all within 35 minutes’ walk of the site. Bodmin also has plenty of shops, pubs and restaurants where you can pick up souvenirs and supplies, scull some local brews or have a taste of Cornish cuisine.

If you’re not feeling up to the trip into Bodmin, an on-site shop in the reception hut has the basics you’ll need, as well as some Orchard Springs home-baked bread and pastries. A campers’ kitchen with microwave, fridge freezer and ice blocks is also available for guests’ use.

A toilet block built by local craftspeople rounds out facilities, with individual shower rooms giving you a little extra privacy during your stay.

Orchard Springs Campsite opened in 2018: its owners spent the 10 years before that running another successful site in the region.

Please note

    The size of the site - not too big but likewise not tiny. It was very well kept and pretty. The couple that run the site were really friendly and helpful and on one evening they fired up their pizza oven and sold pizzas on site - highly recommend these !
    Very clean caravan with pretty much all facilities we could wish for and in our case (staying in Burgundy) we even had a little garden area. Positioned In a peaceful location which was spot on for visiting lots of different Cornish Towns.

Local attractions

Fans of BBC’s Poldark will recognise some of the place names in the area around Orchard Springs: the towns of Bodmin and Truro are close by, with Bodmin a short walk from the site and Truro a 35-minute drive. Poldark is synonymous with lingering shots of the Cornish moors and the experience stretches beyond the urban, with tours bringing you to some of the coves and mines that bring the show to life.

This area of Cornwall has a lot more to show for itself than filming locations. The Eden Project, a 20-minute drive from Orchard Springs, is a top spot to bring the family or to explore by yourself. Get up close with nature in the outdoor gardens and tropical and Mediterranean biomes or, if you’re feeling brave, have a go on England’s longest zipwire.

The Eden Project looks to the future, but if you’d prefer to dig around in the past there are plenty of historic sites close by. Get a feel for Victorian life at Lanhydrock House and Gardens, a 15-minute drive from Orchard Springs; a look at the Elizabethan era at Prideaux Place, 30 minutes away, or head back to Georgian times at Pencarrow, 10 minutes from the site.

If the zi wire at the Eden Project got you geared up for a more active break, you can cycle or walk the Camel Trail – which passes through Bodmin on its way towards the fishing port of Padstow on the northern Cornish coast – or take to the seas at one of the highly-rated surfing beaches nearby.

Must see
