Roughtor Walks Campsite: Camping in Cornwall

General

  • Wild Cornish camping on the edge of Bodmin Moor
  • A quarter of an hour's drive from Jamaica Inn; Tintagel 20 minutes
  • Direct access to open moorland; views over Roughtor hill

Ever dreamt of spending the evening watching the sun setting over Cornwall's highest point? Well, it’s all possible at Roughtor Walks Campsite, a small-scale rural spot on the northern edge of Bodmin Moor.

With direct access to open countryside straight from the pitches and a location just 20 minutes' drive from Cornwall's stunning north coast, Roughtor Walks Campsite is a real walker's paradise, whether you're hoping to hike up hills like Roughtor and Brown Willy, take on part of the South West Coast Path or fancy charting your own course and setting out across the moor.

Although basic, this campsite has lovely level pitches and is very easy to access. Once you've arrived and settled in, you'll be free to set up a campfire, cook your meal for the evening and plan your next day's adventure's under the night sky.

Away from base, you're within easy reach of plenty of pubs and restaurants; the nearest is about five minutes away by car, but you could also head to Jamaica Inn or a coastal seafood bistro if you fancy something special. The nearest sizeable town is Launceston (20 minutes), which is well worth visiting for its castle ruins alone.

Fab location but bring plenty of water and loads of warm bedding.04/08/2021

  • Liked: 

    Quiet, fabulous views, open fires allowed and woods nearby for materials as long as not wet. Proximity to Roughtor excellent. Moorland walking through a gate from the site. Worth a visit just for the scenery, Crowdy Reservoir, walking to Roughtor and Brown Willy (highest point in Cornwall), Davidstow War Museum - all a mile or two away. Good mobile signal.

    Disliked: 

    Basic as described, just a portaloo (clean). Bring your own water (needed 2 trips to Camelford as used more than expected). Bring your own loo roll. Nearest pub not yet serving food (The Rising Sun, 1/8/21). Moors are cold at night (used every blanket and wore a hat).
