  • Dog-friendly Boscastle site one kilometre from the Cornish coast
  • A five-minute drive to the beach and 10 minutes from Tintagel Castle
  • South West Coast Path, pubs, local bus route and shops all walkable
If you’re searching for a stay with sea views and the rather spellbinding Merlin’s Cave and Tintagel Castle 10 minutes’ drive away, tuck yourself away at Green Lane Campsite in Boscastle. In an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the Cornwall coast, this dog-friendly site’s spell is sea views and peaceful surrounds – it's five minutes’ drive away from Bossiney Cove (spot the Elephant Rock and caves marked out in the cliffs or just lounge around in the sand) and under five minutes' drive away from Boscastle Harbour. Surrounded by the harbour village, a National Trust site, things are pretty peaceful on the site. There are sea views to North Cornwall, Devon and Lundy – and when you want the ocean even closer, it's a 10-minute walk to get to the South West Coast Path. Pick your potion… there’s a 16th-century pub 10 minutes’ walk away from the site serving both food and drinks with a beer garden if you want to put up your feet outside. If you’re after somewhere to eat with a harbour view, there are several pubs, restaurants and cafés, 20 minutes’ walk away in the harbour too. Planning on making sandwiches or stashing up some snacks to power you through the day? Handily, there’s a bakery and a couple of food shops around the harbour. Gather some goods for a barbecue or campfire, as they’re both permitted back on site.

Non-electric hardstanding touring pitch

Liked: Nothing, turned up and left

Disliked: Toilet in what can only be described as a plastic 6x4 shed. Hugely sloped grass field or what looked like hardcore storage site

Lauren D. The reviewer booked through Pitchup.com

Non-electric hardstanding touring pitch

Liked: Campsite is exactly as described. Toilet was kept clean. We chose to stay on the slate area the owner did offer to help move us into the field and level our van up but we loved the view from that area so chose to stay there. The owner was friendly and helpful we would go back. About a 10/15 minute walk from the harbour with some lovely walking routes near by and a 5 minute walk from a lovely pub and shop.

Local attractions

Let Tintagel Castle (10 minutes’ drive) work its magic… the heritage castle ruins have a tattered bridge between the cliffs and legends of King Arthur to learn about inside. It’s likely you’ll want to pair the trip with a visit to the small cove and Merlin’s Cave (10 minutes) down below, a sea cave where the famed wizard was believed to have lived. Complete your visit to Tintagel with a woodland walk to the waterfall at St Nectan's Glen (five minutes). If all the magic sparks your interest, continue to Boscastle, which is home to the world’s largest witchcraft collection at The Museum of Witchcraft and Magic (five minutes). There are plenty of things to do around Boscastle and its harbour, including an uphill hike to the Pentargon Waterfall (five minutes). Pick and choose which beach to go to: perhaps search through the rockpools and catch a wave at Crackington Haven (15 minutes) or opt for seal-spotting at Buckator Beach (10 minutes). If you’re after some family-friendly amusement, muddle your way through the maze and jump on the railway at Hidden Valley (25 minutes). Trethorne Leisure Park (25 minutes) is in this area too, a good stop for soft play, bowling or a round on the dodgems.
