General

  • A country escape 30 minutes’ walk from the centre of Bodmin
  • A 20-minute drive from the Eden Project; 35 mins from Truro
  • Individual luxury shower rooms; on-site shop and bakery

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.

Good campsite with a good location but caravan semnt a bit neglected.19/09/2020

  • 2 bedroom static caravan (no pets)

  • Liked: 

    Location and nice and peaceful.

    Disliked: 

    Bugs, bugs and more bugs in caravan. Damp and cold. Toilet was filling up (trickling) the whole time so it was annoying.

From the manager...

Thank you for your review and I am sorry you felt this. Our caravans are not neglected and are clean, they are also not damp. As you can see by other reviews on pitch up most people review our accommodation as being a very high standard. I am sorry the cistern in the toilet was running all the time, however if you had made us aware of this during your stay I would have fixed it for you, we can only resolve things if we are made aware of them, we are not sure what you mean by bugs, we get a few mini spiders and midges on occasions which is to be expected as we are in the country. Best wishes, David and Emma

  • Electric grass tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Really friendly campsite which was peaceful and quiet. Great facilities which were always clean and very close by. The tent pitches were large and very flat, with park benches right beside some of them. In a great location where you are only a few minutes away from shops but far enough out of the town that there is no traffic noise. Very central to many of Cornwall's attractions which were never further than a 30 minute drive. Will definitely stay here again.

    Lovely family run small site, relaxed and friendly atmosphere. David and Emma have a lovely site, and Bodmin is great as a base with all the usual shops and facilities. It's 30 minutes to an hour from everywhere else you want to visit in Cornwall, perfect!
    Showers and toilet facilities on the site were clean and new, and we never had to wait to get in. Sausage rolls and croissants cooked to order, amazing. Our pitch area was huge and almost flat, we've had a great week, and we will definitely be back 👍😁

    Disliked: 

    WiFi signal was not great, but not really an issue for us.

Local attractions

Fans of the 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 tours can take you to some of the coves and mines that bring the show to life.

This area of Cornwall has a lot more to it than filming locations. The Eden Project, a 20-minute drive away, is a top spot to 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 zip 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

  • Eden Project (6.2 miles)
  • Cornwall's Crealy Great Adventure Park (8.5 miles)
  • Rock Beach (10.3 miles)

National Trust

  • Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps (12.7 miles)
  • Trerice (14.0 miles)
