  • Rural Cornwall campsite on a working family farm
  • Polperro village and South West Coast Path 20 minutes' walk
  • Simple pitches with lovely views; well-behaved dogs welcome
You know what you get from a stay up on a hill? Wide-ranging views, that’s what… and those are certainly in plentiful supply at Hilltop Camping, where pitches are spread across five acres of a hillside above the pretty Cornish fishing village Polperro. There’s heaps of space here for you to chill out and soak up the views across the valley before strolling down into the village. It will take you about 20 minutes to wander down there to visit the model village, explore the harbour or sort yourselves with a boat trip to see a bit more of the coastline. There’s also a good collection of shops and places to eat in the village – and more on that front over in Looe, 10 minutes’ drive away. Being so close to the coast is a real bonus for a Cornwall break, as it means you’ll be able to pick up the South West Coast Path from Polperro, or venture just a little further to find gorgeous beaches and cute fishing villages like Polruan. Inland, big attractions like the Eden Project and Porfell Wildlife Park are not far off either. Pitches here are simple in style, but have access to portable toilets and fresh water from the spring on site. Well-behaved dogs are welcome, but will need to be kept on a lead as this is a working farm with livestock.

Non-electric grass touring pitch

Liked: Quiet location close to Polperro. Fairly level pitches at top of camping field, grass cut well. Smart new shower block. Enthusiastic owner with plans to upgrade site for next year.

Disliked: Portaloo toilets. Access into site from Polperro road is a bit tight & steep.

Liked: The owner was very welcoming and it is clear they’d put a lot of thought and effort into creating this beautiful little campsite. Toilets were spotless, and the shower was delightful. You can use the paths across the fields to get you to Polperro. We loved it. Thank you very much for a lovely holiday.

Non-electric grass tent or trailer tent pitch

Liked: We loved our stay at Hilltop Campsite, so much so that we stayed an extra night. Peter is the most marvellous host and we were made to feel right at home. The location is great and there are great walks around his farm and down into Polperro, then onto the coastal path. The new shower in a horse box is such a great experience! Not to be missed! And the views to wake up to are beautiful. Our favourite campsite and we will be back soon!
