  • Five-acre rural Cornwall campsite with views of the Lizard Peninsula
  • Porthleven beach and Flambards Theme Park within a 10-minute drive
  • Café on site, plus animals to meet
The Lizard Peninsula, St Michael’s Mount, St Ives and all sorts of splendid spots along Cornwall’s north and south coasts are all yours for the taking when staying at Roselidden House Camping. This quiet site 10 minutes’ drive from Helston is in a fantastically handy position for exploring – or for simply sitting in the five-acre field and enjoying the views out over the Lizard Peninsula. There’s plenty of space here to relax and spread out so you’ll never be bunched up with other guests. Your neighbours will include the site’s own pet sheep and foster donkeys, so although dogs are allowed they’ll need to be kept on a lead at all times. All the essential facilities are provided too: guests will have access to a washing-up area, a freezer, charging points and a couple of bathroom blocks with family rooms as well as separate men’s and ladies’ facilities. This is a site that goes beyond just the essentials though – it’s also got a café which sells breakfasts, light lunches, drinks and cakes along with a few essentials including fresh milk (opening hours vary through the year so check the notices for details). Once you’ve seen the Lizard views from afar, it’s a fine idea to get out and take a closer look – there are some stunning beaches down there, with plenty of walks and watersports to get stuck into as well. Family attractions like Flambards Theme Park and the Cornish Seal Sanctuary are also close by for kid-friendly days out.

Local attractions

Cornwall holidays must surely all include extensive exploration of the amazing coastline – and you’ll be well placed to do that from Roselidden House. Top spots on the Lizard Peninsula like Kynance Cove and Kennack Sands are about half an hour’s drive away (and linked by spectacular coast path walks), or you could head to the likes of Porthleven (15 minutes’ drive), Praa Sands (20 minutes) or Poldhu (20 minutes). Other spots to seek out along the coast might include St Michael’s Mount (25 minutes), Trebah Garden (25 minutes) or – up on the north coast – St Ives (35 minutes) for its excellent mix of art galleries and gorgeous beaches. Although the coast draws much of the glory, there’s much to see and do inland as well. Perhaps you’d like to scream down the rides of Flambards Theme Park (10 minutes), have a more gentle journey on the heritage trains of the Helston Railway (10 minutes) or spend some time meeting the residents of the Cornish Seal Sanctuary (15 minutes)?
