Elysian Fields: Some happy guests enjoying the sunshine

General

  • Family-run site a short walk from pubs in Ashton and Breage
  • Three miles from the beach, harbour and restaurants of Porthleven
  • Playground, licensed shop and bar/restaurant on site

According to Greek mythology, the original ‘Elysian Fields’ were beautiful meadows, the ultimate paradise, and a place to enjoy perfect happiness. Believed to be in the west, at the end of the earth, and surrounded by ‘Oceanus’, they provided sanctuary and breathed new life into all those worthy of entering.

Cornwall’s own Elysian Fields is between the little villages of Breage and Ashton, with seven acres of serene space and scenic views towards Tregonning Hill, as well as distant glimpses of the sea and cliffs of the Lizard peninsula. Pitch up here and you’ll be able to stroll along quiet footpaths to the local villages or walk to the top of Tregonning Hill, which stands at 194 metres and gives views from coast to coast over west Cornwall, including Mount’s Bay and St Ives. More adventurous walkers can explore the Godolphin Estate, while those who’ve come along for the coast can take a short drive to the ancient harbour at Porthleven or gorgeous Praa Sands beach.

The site has its own bar and restaurant, Tony's Tavern, with draught Cornish beers and cider. Cornish breakfasts and lighter breakfast baps are available in the mornings between 9am and 11am, and a range of evening meals are on offer between 6pm and 9pm. Takeaway meals can be delivered to the pitches if you prefer.

To make your stay more comfortable, picnic benches, windbreaks and firepits can be hired, with a plentiful supply of kiln-dried logs on sale in the shop to help warm up cooler evenings.

Also on site are a playground, a small shop, and a laundry room with coin-operated washing machines and a tumble dryer. Guests also have free use of two large freezers, a fridge, an iron and ironing board, and a microwave.

Please note

The bar is open between 01/01 and 31/12.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

The grocery shop is open between 01/01 and 31/12.

    The site was the best I’ve stayed at.
    All the facilities were excellent and the staff were very accommodating.

    The location was excellent and near to many of the amazing beaches that Cornwall as to offer. The food was great and the option to hire BBQ, Picnic tables and Long burners was an added bonus.

    See you guys again soon. 5 STAR.

    I liked everything about this site. Nice flat pitch of a reasonable size. We had electric hookup.
    Exellent facilities, a laundry room with washers and dryers, iron and board. Fridges and freezers and a microwave. Small fee for the washing machine and dryers but everything else free.
    Lovely toilet area and ladies showers great, my partner informed me men's not as good, always spotlessly clean.
    Tony's Tavern was a delight, great food and a good choice of drinks. There is also a lovely 'local' about half a mile away, easy walkable.

    Would book here again. Nice and central for visiting the area.

Local attractions

Having gazed out over Tregonning Hill, it's a fine idea to amble over there for a closer look. It’ll take you around 45 minutes of leisurely walking to get to the top for some excellent views over both north and south coasts and plenty of historical info on the old mining pits and war memorial.

Likewise, the beaches you’ve glimpsed from afar look pretty fab from up close too. The sands of Porthleven, three miles away, are the nearest, and there are plenty of others a short drive away, including Praa Sands and Marazion (from where you can take a boat or cross the causeway to St Michael’s Mount).

Arty types may like to spend a day in St Ives, half an hour’s drive away, taking in the exhibits of Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden. Perhaps less highbrow but equally entertaining are the Cornish Seal Sanctuary in Gweek and the rides and attractions at The Flambards Experience, both of which are around a 15-minute drive away.

Must see

  • Flambards (3.9 miles)
  • St Michael's Mount (6.0 miles)
  • National Seal Sanctuary (6.1 miles)

National Trust

  • Godolphin (2.0 miles)
  • Penrose Estate: Gunwalloe and Loe Pool (2.6 miles)
