General

  • Peaceful park at the foot of Tregonning Hill
  • Two miles from Praa Sands
  • Several countryside walks starting from the site

Serene sorts, set yourselves down away from Cornish crowds at Boscrege Caravan Park, set up for families and couples to have a peaceful and quiet Cornwall camping hol. This park is family-owned and run, and takes pride in putting the convenience and comfort of guests at its fore: we think a cosy and relaxing time awaits.

Boscrege is in a handy placement from which to explore the beaches, beaut landscapes, myths, legends and attractions of west Cornwall too: the furry dances of Helston are five miles away, Flambards is within eight, and the mile-long golden sandy stretch of gorgeous Praa Sands within about two. More practically, all the amenities you'll likely need are within five miles.

This is a birdwatching and wildlife haven too, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty between Tregonning Hill and the National Trust-managed Godolphin Hill, and if you're here for hikes, several walks start just off the park into the Cornish countryside.

Boscrege Caravan Park welcomes dogs and has an enclosed dog exercise area on site.

    Disliked: 

    Don't go by sat nav as will take you through v tight roads . Definitely need to take provisions with you as no shops for a good few miles . Wifi was apparently free but you had to 'buy'it at reception so not free at all , shame as internet reception was iffy .

From the manager...

Thank you for your kind review on the park, and so glad you enjoyed your holiday with us.

Apologies if you feel misled about the WIFI, its always been a chargeable extra at the park, but we do offer a 3 min free test to make sure it works before you purchase a voucher. hope to see you again in the future, all the best Suzy.

Boscrege is an extremely peaceful site. 13/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Steven S. Confirmed

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

    Boscrege is an extremely peaceful site, set in some of the most beautiful countryside England has to offer. It's well placed for the beautiful beach at Praa Sands, and being equidistant between Penzance and Helston there are plenty of options for supplies.

    As a tip, some of the roads leading towards the site are fairly narrow with some very sharp bends. All easily manageable with a car, but a more tricky proposition if you had a caravan or trailer. I was speaking to a guy that was there with a caravan, and he'd had real grief getting to the site (he'd come in from the east via Balwest). The better option is to go to Godolphin Cross, then take the more-or-less straight road southwesterly towards the site.

    Disliked: 

    WIFI is available, but being in a relatively secluded, rural site, internet speeds aren't great so don't expect to be able to stream anything; saying that, general searches worked (albeit slowly), and sending and receiving emails worked fine.

From the manager...

thank you your kind review, hope you had a safe journey home and look forward to seeing you again. thanks suzy

Hi Marta

Thanks for your kind review and apologies for the noise, unfortunately it was not our park, in Porthleven every bank holiday they have a masked ball for around 5000 people which is 4/5 miles away. I have reported the noise level to the council but i cannot control a sound system at a legal party. Trust me i was up myself throughout the whole weekend. I do hope you return again to our peaceful park in Cornwall in the near future.

thanks Suzy

    Very generous pitch size with plenty of room between each caravan/tent. The kids loved the play area and made lots of new friends. Loads of room to play ball games and lovely surroundings for walking. Hot water was always available and toilets clean with new shower curtains every day.

Directions


We are situated off the A394 between Helston and Penzance. As you arrive in Ashton village, please turn into Higher Lane, opposite the old garage and continue down the road for about 1.5 miles through Balwest. Continue up to a sharp bend and turn left. We are located just 100 yards on the left-hand side.

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

You'll need a car if staying at Boscrege Caravan Park, as the nearest bus stop is a mile away and services in the rural parts of Cornwall aren't too frequent.

But once you've set off, pretty much everything you might fancy in south-west Cornwall is in easy reach: two miles to Praa Sands, eight to the Lizard Peninsula, nine to St Ives and ten to the Mousehole. A must is getting your pic snapped at the Land's End signpost 20 miles away.

The National Trust's Godolphin, a seventeenth century house with sixteenth century gardens, is also easily reachable from the site; subtropical plants thrive at Morrab Gardens, and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are to the east near St Austell.

Must see

  • St Michael's Mount (4.9 miles)
  • Flambards (5.3 miles)
  • National Seal Sanctuary (7.4 miles)

National Trust

  • Godolphin (1.0 miles)
  • Penrose Estate: Gunwalloe and Loe Pool (4.2 miles)
