Compton Park


• Campsite, farm shop and restaurant on a 1000-ft hill
• 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.

The farm shop will see guests sorted for fruit, veg, eggs, chutneys and gifts; pubs, food shops, hardware stores and a supermarket are at Callington two minutes' walk away. Kelly Bray, the closest village to the park at five minutes' walk, has a pub and a launderette.
