'I’m free, to do what I want, any old time...' Free spirits will enjoy Namparra Campsite, near Kennack Sands on Cornwall’s Lizard Peninsula: visitors are at liberty to light their own campfire and can pick their perfect spot within the lush six-acre camping meadow to get the best of the gorgeous sea views. Fellow residents include a handful of friendly goats and a pondful of ducks and moorhens.
With the Cow Shed Bar just a short stroll away, guests can also freely sample the local cider and scrummy homemade cocktails over a game of pool, without any arguments about who is designated driver.
The Shed serves all you can eat breakfasts every day during school holidays, all you can eat curry once a week and a carvery on Sundays. It also has regular entertainment and the beer garden has been extended to house the free bouncy castle assault course for the kids to bounce around at.
Wooden cabins house the showers and loos, and there’s a sheltered washing-up area and a small laundry room. You can get kindling and logs for your campfire on site, or dig your own firepit.

Party: 2 adults
Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

From the manager...
Thankyou for leaving your review, I am however quite sad it is quite so negative! Namparra is a family run campsite , there will always be children around as we have to run the business and also raise our family, although for the most part they are happily mixing in with children from the campsite!! The young man in the bar who checked you in is actually 15 , this is the first year he has been old enough to begin to help us out along with his niece . These 2 are learning the ropes as quickly as they can but confidence is something that takes a little time but we know they will get there. (we did feel extra sorry for the young guy in question however as he relayed the check in process he had with you and apart from for getting to check the name in the book , he did pretty well in his mind, he said he did his best to answer your questions!!)

About 20 minutes’ walk from Namparra Campsite you’ll find Kennack Sands, a fantastic family beach with a great café; a similar walk in the other direction takes you through a picturesque valley to Poltesco, a hidden cove with a pebbly beach and the photogenic ruins of an old serpentine works, and the Lizard Point with its iconic lighthouse.
This part of Cornwall is peppered with enchanting fishing villages, including nearby Cadgwith: if you’re lucky enough to be here on a Friday night (known in these parts as Saint Inebriatus’ Eve!), you can join the renowned Cadgwith Singers for a singalong of sea shanties in the local pub.
There are loads of good days out for the family, too: the seal sanctuary at Gweek; Cornish Camels for tractor rides, a giant sandpit and lots of animals, including, of course, camels; the Flambards Experience theme park; and the Poldark Mine, for a glimpse into the life of a tin miner and a wide range of fun activities including gold panning, candle dipping and pottery throwing.
