General

  • Relaxed farm site half a mile from the South West Coast Path
  • 2.5 miles from Boscastle and five from King Arthur land at Tintagel
  • Stunning views and excellently-kept amenities

If you're striding out on the South West Coast Path (and if you're staying in Cornwall or Devon you absolutely must), you might like to try an especially handsome section to tackle, the four-mile hike from Boscastle to kingly Arthur's old castle of Tintagel: it's utterly majestic.

How timely, then, that the South West Coast Path and route to Boscastle is a mere half mile from Lower Pennycrocker Farm, which lies in a coast location most convenient for this traipse and other top-hole Cornwall attractions. (Eg, it's a few minutes' drive from cracking surf at Crackington Haven and seven miles from much more of the foamy same at Bude).

The views in this part of the world – from both the campsite and the cliffs on its doorstep – are fit for a king, which is probably why the vicinity's been crowned as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Bodmin Moor is about seven miles away to see Cornish views of a different but still eminent sort, and if it's urbanity you're after, the town of Boscastle is two and a half miles away and Wadebride and Port Isaac within 30–40 minutes respectively.

On site, all is royally relaxed on this laidback farm, with free hot showers, chemical disposal, washing-up areas and spankingly clean amenities all round. A farm shop is about five minutes' drive away, or wander down to it via the coastal path.

As befits a park with miles of hikes all around, dogs are allowed at Lower Pennycrocker, but please keep them on leads on site and exercise them away from the farm.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Single-sex bookings of 8 or more people (couples and immediate family members excepted) are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

    Met by Colin on arrival guided us to our pitch which had a stunning view out to see, explained the site and he could not be more helpful. The facilities where basic with toilets, sinks, showers and a washing facility, all these had handfuls of hot water and was kept very clean. You would see Colin on a number of occasions within the and will always stop by to ensure all is well and a chat. You can get onto the South West Coast path from here just down the road for some even better stunning views of Cornwall and pleasurable walks.

    Disliked:

    The position and views, with lots of space and no regimenting. The little honesty shop with useful essentials of food, although we didn't use it. Nice new toilet and shower block, efficient and cleaned daily.

    Lovely campsite - but as other reviewers have said there is only the campsite and washing facilities,there is nothing else. Which was fine with us but if your looking for more be prepared to drive or take your own cards & books.
    Colin the owner, lovely guy - happy to help and advise and keen everyone happy and settled.
    Keeps everything spotless and up to scratch.

    Disliked: 

    The weather !!!
    Wall to wall sunshine weather broke as we arrived !!
    As the campsite is on the cliffs which is beautiful - if the weather is good - but windy and wet if not !!

Directions


By car
On the A39, take the Boscastle turning (B3263), 1.5 miles south of Wainhouse Corner. Follow the road for 2.7 miles and then turn right at the Lower Pennycrocker Campsite sign. We are the second farm on the left approximately three quarters of a mile in.

From Boscastle car park (by car)
Head north towards Bude on the B3263. Continue on this road for approximately 2.5 miles and then take the left hand turning signposted Lower Pennycrocker Campsite. We are the second farm on the left.

Local attractions

Start off on that South West Coast Path near Lower Pennycrocker Farm: you'll be on the path within half a mile of base and the Boscastle to Tintagel Castle leg starts two and a half miles from there, passing delightfully-named landmarks like Firebeacon Hill, Rocky Valley and Barras Nose.

The nearest beach to the farm is Crackington Haven less than three miles away, around a coastal village with a shop, two small cafés and a pub.

The beach is lifeguarded in summer, as are the ones at Bude a 20-minute drive away; both are sublimely good surfing spots and popular with families. Never tried it? Enrol in a surf school at Bude or several other beachly locations within a short drive to find out more.

If you're wandering just to Boscastle or stopping off there on the way to Arthurland, make time for a captivating afternoon in the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic, apparently 'held in high esteem by the British occult community' (hurrah). A visit to the pottery shop and a picnic overlooking Boscastle's harbour should very much be on the cards too.

Other options in the area include tackling the golf course at nearby Camelford (other decent courses are at Bude and Launceston), or a meander around Bodmin Moor: see if you can spy the famous beast… Bude Canal is 20 minutes' away for those fancying fishing or boat trips; canoe, kayak and pedalo hire are all available.

The calm Camel Trail to Padstow can be cycled from Wadebridge 30 minutes' drive away; a cinema is in Wadebridge too (and one 15 minutes away in Poundstock) if you fancy the flicks.

Finally, have a day in Port Isaac within 30–40 minutes to snap selfie opps galore among its whitewashed cottages and teeny passageway Squeezy Belly Alley.

Must see

  • Tintagel Castle (5.2 miles)
  • Rock Beach (15.9 miles)
  • Cornwall's Crealy Great Adventure Park (19.0 miles)
