Pipers: Grass tent pitches with countryside views

General

  • Peaceful family pop-up campsite with spectacular Bodmin Moor views
  • A 10-minute drive to Liskeard; 35 to the Eden Project
  • Showers and washing-up sinks on site; pub and shop five minutes’ drive

Edging Bodmin Moor in a peaceful, scenic corner of Cornwall near Liskeard, Pipers is all about a back-to-basics camping experience in a 3.5 acre field with cracking views over neighbouring farm fields to Dartmoor. The entrance to the site is on an unadopted country lane, so there’s no traffic noise and no street lights, just honest-to-goodness fresh air – and when the night sky is clear, the chance to do some serious stargazing.

With no formal pitches, you can pitch up anywhere in the field to suit your camping requirements – please note some pitches are on a slight slope. Being a no-frills sort of place, there is no electricity but you can relax in the warmth of a firepit and enjoy a barbecue on site, and you do have access to a toilet and shower block as well as cold-water sinks for washing up.

Pensilva village (five minutes’ drive) offers a basics shop, pub and a takeaway fish and chip van (Thursday night only). For major supermarket restocks, head for Liskeard (10 minutes’ drive), where you can pick up takeaways for all tastes, from kebabs to Indian, Chinese and pizza, and there are a few pubs for enjoying a crafty pint.

A couple of site rules: dogs must be kept on leads, and please keep noise to a minimum between 11pm and 8am.

Please note

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.

There is no reception on-site: on arrival please contact the number provided on your booking confirmation.

    What a fantastic 5 day stay at pipers! We were instantly blown away with the views and tranquility at this hidden gem. We love camping and this has by far been the best location. The facilities were a true luxury, hot showers and clean facilities, without taking away the true experience of camping. Dan and Sheila went out of their way to accommodate all of our needs and their recommendations for where to visit were great 😊 you really were AMAZING!

    We had a fab time and are already talking about booking our next visit!

    The very rough and rocky road leading to the campsite

From the manager...

Thank you for your review. We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed the isolation & tranquility of the site.
In relation to access we will request a change to pitch up to say it is down an unmade / unadopted country lane.Prior to opening we undertook a lot of repairs to the lane to make it more smooth/accessible.
We are now awaiting for the council/ highways to alter their drainage at the top of the lane. It is excess water off this which is causing the problems going down the lane.Once this as been addressed we will be able to make further repairs..
