  • Community-run farm site a mile from St Just in the Cornwall AONB
  • Help out on the farm, feed the chickens and collect fresh eggs
  • Eggs, veg, jams, honey and more for sale on site

What smashing ideas for Cornish camping are these. Bosavern Community Farm is owned and run by local folk in and around St Just, operates on a sustainable basis and welcomes guests pitching in with farm life alongside its local and international volunteers, whether you fancy planting, harvesting, tackling a clutch of weeding or collecting fresh warm eggs and feeding the chickens... (and what a handy opp too to teach the kids that food doesn't grow in the supermarket).

Off site, Bosavern is close to Penzance and among the beaut beaches, smashingly scenic countryside and ancient landscape/attractions for which Cornwall is famed, all in the West Penwith part of the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

It's a mile from the village of St Just where you'll find a small supermarket, a post office, a library, three pubs, takeaways, cafés and several shops and art galleries. Buses stop outside the farm to take adventurers to Penzance, St Ives and places in between.

The farm facilities include 'tree bogs' (loos) and a composting system – you'll find nothing is wasted here... There's also a communal firepit to sit around of an evening and you can use the few braziers and off-ground small fire site next to the pitching area if it's safe windwise (do please ask if you're not sure). Wood is a bit scarce in these parts, so the farm owners would appreciate if you could bring your own.

And fably finally, heaps of farm produce is available at the farm shop run by and for the local community, including eggs, veg, honey and herbal preparations, as well as locally made jams, chutneys, raw chocolate products, candles and soaps – you can even buy toasty hand-knitted Cornish socks.
