Campsites in Redruth: from sea-view lodges to top-notch tent pitches

Hide out in the hills at a holiday park in Redruth or bed down by the beaches – the town is close to the Cornish countryside and coast. Look out for sites with scenic views over grassy greenery or those overlooking the white-tipped swells of the Atlantic Ocean. If a remote location sounds like your sort of thing, there are farm parks where your main neighbours will be sheep and cows.

Aquatic aficionado? Opt for a place with a pool to wallow in when you’re not bobbing up and down in the sea or choose luxury lodges, pods and cabins or glamping with hot tub access. You could also camp under canvas in a fun safari tent or yurt well worthy of a highlight on your Instagram.

If you’re zipping around Cornwall with the kids, choose from campsites with play areas, games rooms and oodles of outdoor space for racing around. Caravan parks in Redruth are handy options as well. Accommodation typically comes with a kitchen, so self-catering is a doddle, plus separate rooms mean mum and dad can have a little breathing space away from the nippers when needed. 

Cornwall is one of the most popular parts of the UK for a hol bounding from place to place, meaning tourers can easily nab a sizeable pitch at campsites or holiday parks in Redruth with room for motorhomes or caravans.

Local highlights to hit up when camping in Redruth 

Sure, the town itself is worth a look, but you’ll likely be staying at a campsite near Redruth for access to scenic surrounds rather than urban amenities (although being close to a shop is mighty useful when you run out of beer…).

Keep explores relatively local to start with by heading to the St Agnes Heritage Coast (20 minutes) for a surfer-dotted cove and strolls along the South West Coast Path. Next, veer a little way inland to the Blue Hills, a landscape strewn with tin streams that are a reminder of the county’s mining heritage.

A little more inland still is Stithians Reservoir, a lake and country park with an activity centre, play area and walking trails. Angling buffs can set up a rod and fish for brown and rainbow trout here while thrill-seeking give windsurfing a go.

Get to Gwithian, right by the National Trust-protected Godrevy nature reserve, for yet more watersports and a long, sandy beach with plenty of rockpools for the kids to paddle in when the tide’s out. Tots are also pretty fond of the castles and trampoline parks to be found in this activity-packed area.

Want more? Having a respite in Redruth means you’ll be close to the A30 for pootling down this main road towards major Cornish destinations like Lands End and the Eden Project.
