Spitfire Park: Camping area

General

  • Camping in the grounds of a former WW2 Spitfire base in Cornwall
  • Five minutes' drive from Perranporth; Newquay 20 minutes
  • Parachuting, flying lessons, skid car training and archery

Buckle up for adventure on land, sea and in the air at Spitfire Park, a 400-acre former RAF Spitfire base just off the South West Coast Path near Perranporth, Cornwall.

With spacious grassy pitches for camping in a field next to an old control tower, this site has all sorts of adventurous activities to try out. During your stay, depending on when you're here, options may include parachuting, flying lessons, skid car training, archery, pistol shooting and hangliding; there are also dual-control cars where the over-12s can learn to drive in a safe and laidback environment.

Activities aside, this is a handy place to park yourself: there are modern toilets, showers and washing-up areas for guests to use, as well as a café and a playground. The coast is within easy walking distance and the closest sandy beach is a five-minute drive down the road in Perranporth.

After soaking up some sunshine by the water, head into the town centre for supermarkets, pubs, cafés and souvenir shops. Want to leave the car at home? You can also travel between the site and Perranporth by bus.

Please note

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

Minimum spacing of 3 metres between pitches.

Protective masks must be worn at all times in common areas.

Please note that the toilet/shower facilities are unisex.

No charcoal barbecues allowed.

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

    The cafe on site is great and carol is lovely, going the extra mile for anyone she can.
    The grass didn’t get boggy despite it raining quite heavily one night. The toilets and showers were cleaned and restocked every day. Being on an airfield you get to watch planes take off and land!
    Despite there being no WiFi we still got good phone signal

    Disliked: 

    The showers can be a little temperamental, they’re either red hot or cold, struggled to get it just right.

    Brilliant, good clean facilities, nice friendly people. Quiet and in the couhtry but close to the town. We will be back.

    Disliked: 

    Rather hard to find. One sign showing the entrance that faces one way so you don't see it coming off the main road. When you hit the aerodrome you can't see it so, with no sign, you think you've gone the wrong way as it looks like you are driving onto the runway. We drove about for quite a while before finding it

Local attractions

If nothing can beat a day at the beach, Spitfire Park has you covered: Perranporth's spacious beach is a five-minute drive down the road and has miles of golden sands, grass-topped dunes and a pretty seaside village next to it full of cafés and bars. Other resorts like Newquay (20 minutes) and Padstow (40 minutes) are also easily within your reach, as are spots on Cornwall's southern coast like Falmouth (40 minutes).

You won't be scratching your head looking for family-friendly days out in this part of the world, as there are lots of kid-pleasing options about for you to choose from: Lappa Valley (20 minutes) with its vintage miniature railway, boating lake and mini golf is a more laidback pick, while for kids with endless energy there's also Camel Creek Adventure Park (40 minutes).

Finding out about the local area is a breeze at the Royal Cornwall Museum (20 minutes), where you'll learn all about Cornwall's industrial heritage. For some natural history instead, Cornwall is well-known for its wealth of gardens – if you only have time to see one during your trip, make it the Eden Project (45 minutes).

Must see

  • Lappa Valley Steam Railway (6.4 miles)
  • Truro Cathedral (7.1 miles)
  • Fistral Beach (7.2 miles)
