Spacious pitches

General

  • 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… head 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…

    I never leave reviews as a single parent I don't take the time to do these things. However it is a must on this occasion. My children are 7 year old twins and literally found East Crinnis as their sanctuary. The site is fabulous, beautiful, very clean and totally friendly. Trish an Roul have made us so welcome that after spending a few days in July we had to return a couple of weeks later. I can only recommend this place even this means that I will have less of an opportunity to find availability for our next trip here

    The shower and toilet facilities were excellent. Always clean and water temperature and pressure was fantastic. They were very well maintained.
    The staff were friendly and very welcoming.
    The pitch size was large and flat with a bit of privacy due to hedges.
    The general size was well maintained and clean and tidy.

    Disliked: 

    There was quite a bit of noise from groups until late hours (up till midnight sometimes), made it harder with young children.

    Loved the fact that the pitches were sectioned off by bushes. The actual pitch was a great size.
    Wardens were very friendly and helpful.

    Disliked: 

    The gravel outside the shop in the seating area, is not good for wheelchair users as it is impossible to move on it.

Clean facilities, good location for exploring cornwall by car.20/07/2020

  • Non-electric grass tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Great location for getting out and about around Cornwall in the car. loads of things to visit nearby, such as the Eden Project, Fowey and Mevigissy. Plus further afield, Lands End is about 1hr 15mins away, Tintagel just under an hour. We stayed in 'The Meadow' which is a small grass area towards the top of the site. It is surrounded by small trees or bushes and fits six tents with cars. The top toilets, showers and sink are about 1 min walk. The bottom toilets and shop are about 2 or 3 mins walk. The kitchen facilities were just a sink for washing up due to coronavirus restrictions. But the showers and toilets were clean, modern, the water was really hot and good water pressure. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the shop was open 8-8 with a good range of basics. There are some big supermarkets nearby for everything else. The bar on Carlyon beach was a nice place for a drink and food - only 20 mins walk away. The coastal path is only 10 mins walk from the campsite.

    Disliked: 

    If you're looking for total peace and quiet, then you may find the road a bit noisy. If you want a seaview or a lovely beach right on your doorstep, this probably isn't for you either. There are only one or two places in short walking distance to for a drink or a meal. The wifi was only in the area by the shop and didn't reach our pitch.

    Beautiful little site with really friendly staff. Nice clean facilities and great supply of sanitiser products during the covid pandemic.

    Disliked: 

    Reasonably close to road and could hear some local 'boy racers' on one evening. Nothing the site can do about big exhausts but might put some people off.
    Child friendlness marked down due to the play area being shut. (covid-19)

Local attractions

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.
