- Peaceful family-friendly site on a working farm
- Two miles from the Eden Project: arrange personal guided tours on site
- Landscaped wildlife haven, pond and summer storytelling/pasty nights
A wildlife haven half a mile from the Cornish coast with easy access to famed destinations like Fowey, Mevagissey and the Eden Project... come to East Crinnis Camping and Caravan Park for the whole heap.
This friendly, peaceful and family-friendly site is in a secluded and scenic rural setting on a working farm, well placed for easy access to enough Cornish destinations to occupy all ages and tastes for weeks. It's a short stroll from here to the mile-long sands, fishing, watersports centre and South West Coast Path access of Shorthorn beach in Carlyon Bay – that'll keep you occupied for at least the first week – and a five-minute drive (or two-mile bike ride) to the famed Eden Project near St Austell; the farm owners can arrange personal guided tours.
As it's a wildlife haven, there's loads to spot on site and around the handsome lake added as part of East Crinnis's farmland conservation project. Guests can fish for free (although you'll need to bring along the relevant Environment Agency licence). Rudd, roach and small carp (max 4lb) swim in the waters so it's a super spot for nippers and novices to have a go.
It's all well thought out around the accommodation area too: this part of the farm is carefully landscaped and has plenty of shelter and colour among its many shrubs and flowers near a backdrop of tall pine and fir trees.
Previous guests have raved about the many fab features of this splendid little site – bag a break here to find them out for yourself. The free storytelling and pasty evenings held weekly during Whitsun and summer school holidays may have something to do with it...

To the sands! Local beach Shorthorn is a popular (but uncrowded) place for families, with over a mile of sand, a kids' play area and safe waters for fishing and swimming. The South West Coast Path runs past the beach for hikes east to Par or west to Porthpean.
Other seaside spots very much worth a visit in the area include the harbours of Charlestown five minutes' drive from the farm, Fowey within 15 and the fishing port of Mevagissey within 20. Townwise, sample more Cornish pasties as well as a Cornish cider or two at Falmouth (55 minutes), also home to independent shops, the National Maritime Museum and boat trips on the River Fal.
Heading further north, it's 35 minutes' drive from the farm to access the flat and traffic-free Camel Trail at Wadebridge, running for 14 miles to Padstow via ancient Bodmin, and 35 minutes to the waves and surf schools of Newquay.
The Lost Gardens of Heligan are within 25 minutes' drive.
