See all facilities…

Yes, there are still places in this country where the boss can’t track you down... If you sometimes think you’re going to have to surgically remove the smartphone from your other half’s mitts, you might want to have a butchers at this gorgeous wild camping site (shhh, there’s no phone signal).

Buzzards Bridge is one for those who like “proper” camping, with rustic facilities and no crowds. With only a handful of pitches, everyone gets tons of room, there’s a communal campfire and benches by the babbling brook, and the loo is a “tree bog” high up in the willows (an experience described by one guest as “strangely enjoyable”).

Not only that but there are no cars - unless you come in a campervan - and no electricity, just the peace and quiet of a deliciously secret meadow surrounded by ancient trees and sparkling streams, tucked away in one of the country’s Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Fuel is provided by willow grown on site, and the off-grid electricity supply is all from solar. With a strict no noise policy after 9pm, the only cries you’re likely to hear are those of Bargos, the resident buzzard.

There’s plenty of parking near the main gates, where guests can also grab a wheelbarrow to trundle their kit down to their pitch. Alternatively, the friendly owners will even arrange transport to and from a local public transport hub (e.g. Redruth Station) with a bit of advance notice.

A bell tent and beds are available to hire, firewood is for sale on site, and dogs and barbeques are welcome (though not combined, obviously).

PS If you really do need a phone signal, you’ll be able to get one a few hundred yards away. There are also pubs and shops a mile from the site.
