Compton Park: On site

General

  • Campsite and restaurant on a 1000-foot hill near Callington
  • Set on the site of a former Cornish tin mine
  • Surrounded by 400 acres of country park and Cornish mining heritage

You'll find right royal views from placid Compton Park in east Cornwall, set on the sunny south-western slopes of Kit Hill.

The hill was once owned by Prince Charles (he gave it to the Cornish people to celebrate the birth of Wills in 1985) and from here scenery seekers can see kingly panoramas of Cornwall and Devon – such as Plymouth and the Mew Stone to the east; the Eddystone lighthouse 12 miles out to sea; the north Cornish coast to above Looe; the white peaks of old Cornish clay tips, the Eden Project and the eastern side of Bodmin Moor to the west.

This part of Cornwall is rolling in history and heritage: Kit Hill and its slopes form Kit Hill Country Park, heavy in Cornish mining heritage, and Compton Park itself is on the site of a former tin mine.

More into natural history? Kit Hill is the highest point in the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and named after 'kite', the old English word for birds of prey – look up from the mines to see buzzards and kestrels hunting overhead.

On site, stroll around the peaceful six acres before settling down to a home-cooked meal in the restaurant and tearoom of the converted steam engine house – the conversion also includes the site amenities of showers, loos and washing facilities.

Pubs, food shops, hardware stores and a supermarket are at Callington, 20 minutes' walk away. Kelly Bray, the closest village to the park at five minutes' walk, has a pub and a launderette.

Not dog *un*friendly, but nothing here for dogs except poo bins!29/11/2021

    Friendly welcome, all facilities super-clean

    Disliked: 

    Disappointed at the lack of any facilities for dogs (apart from poo bins, of which there were many.) No dog walk, no access to the "400 acre country park" without going out onto the fast country road which has no footpaths or verges, no tie rings / hooks anywhere that I saw. Not dog *un*friendly, but not my definition of dog-friendly. And the "400 acre country park" looked to be basically fields with livestock in, so not very useful for my dog walking as I have a youngster still learning. I had picked the site specifically as it sounded like it would have lots of livestock-free walking on hand, but I ended up having to go off in the car to find places to give them a run.

    Would have been useful to be given a little info sheet with WiFi password, site plan showing all facilities, etc.

    Shower clean, water hot and pressure good, but very high up little fixed head : not ideal for a short long-haired female. Adjustable height and angle head would have been much better, detachable head better yet.

    This one was "operator error", just something for others to be aware of. My pitch looked level but had quite a sideways slope, I discovered after setting up. It wasn't too much of a problem as I had electric hookup, but if I had been non-electric I would have had to rehitch the car and get the wedges out, as the fridge needs to be absolutely level side-to-side to work on gas. I guess always check with the spirit level before unhitching, even where the pitches look level!

Directions


If you're coming to Cornwall through Dartmoor National Park, head for Tavistock, then take the A390 for Callington, cross the Cornwall/Devon border at Gunnislake and just before reaching Callington at the crossroads of Fullaford Road and Florence Road, turn right. Go up the hill of Florence Road, continue for half a mile and Compton Park is on your right.

From Plymouth/Saltash, take the A388 towards Callington to the roundabout on the outskirts of Callington; go straight across staying on the A388 heading for Launceston. Straight through the traffic lights and along Launceston Road for one mile brings you to Kelly Bray; turn right along Florence Road and after half a mile Compton Park is on your left.

If you're coming to Cornwall via the A30, get to Launceston and head for the A388 to Callington. Coming into Kelly Bray, the village before Callington, take the third on your left along Florence Road and again Compton Park is half a mile on your left.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

See the sights of Cornwall, west Devon, Plymouth and Dartmoor with royal ease from Compton Park via the easily accessible A38 and A30 roads or by taking a train from Gunnislake two miles away along the Tamar Valley line to the Bere Peninsula and Plymouth.

On foot, stride among the scenery, wildlife and mines of Kit Hill Country Park: climb to the stack at the top of the hill for spectacular views over Bodmin Moor. Go east for 386 square miles of walking, climbing or cantering at Dartmoor, and south-east to Plymouth for fathoms' worth of maritime heritage including the National Marine Aquarium and famed Plymouth Hoe.

To the north and south, days (weeks?) of splashing can be had at Cornwall's safe and clean family beaches and at the watersports activities of Roadford and Siblyback lakes.

Make for award-winning Morwellham Quay on the Tamar for more mining history, part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site covering the industrial heritage of Cornwall and Devon. If historic houses are more your heritage thing, both counties come with heaps of heritage buildings and gardens including lovely Lanhydrock at Bodmin and 700 year old Buckland Abbey at Yelverton.

For smalls, the Tamar Valley Donkey Park and play barn or a puff on the steam railways at Launceston and Bodmin should see them sorted, while family days out at the lush Eden Project are about 45 minutes' drive away.
