Mulling over a trip to Cornwall but want to avoid the hordes? Pitch up at the peaceful Franchis Holiday Park just outside the village of Mullion on the lovely Lizard Peninsula, where the generously-sized pitches spread across four acres mean that you’ll never know the peril of having a stranger snoring two feet away from your tent. We make no promises about the snoring of your other half.
Franchis Holiday Park is set between farm and woodland in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with just 57 pitches across the whole park and with a separate field near a woodland stream set aside for tents. Despite the space, there are numerous taps all around to save a long walk in the morning to fill up the kettle (always a bonus), and there’s a shop open on site during busy times to supply the morning cuppa milk and other essentials. For bigger shops or eating out, Mullion is within a couple of minutes’ drive and the town of Helston is five miles away; there’s tourist info on site too if you want to head further afield.
Other facilities include two shower and loo blocks with free hot water, a free freezer for ice packs and a launderette. There are books to borrow if you’ve forgotten your bedtime reading: you’ll have to read by torchlight as lighting on the campsite is kept to a minimum for max appreciation of the night sky and the local wildlife. Reading by torchlight while bats and owls fly and hoot overhead? Now that’s also a bonus…
