Hillcrest Views Campsite: Pitches with views

General

  • Quiet back-to-basics site on a working farm in Illogan
  • Golf course, trampoline park and watersports lake within 20 minutes
  • 10 minutes' walk from village pubs and 45 from Portreath beach

A working farm on the edge of a Cornwall village, with easy access to country footpaths and a 45-minute saunter from the beach… the kind of place one could settle in for a lifetime, eh?

The folks at Hillcrest Views Campsite certainly think so – the family set up home here over 80 years ago and haven’t budged since. Current owner Amy’s now welcoming guests to share in her tribe’s special spot while making sure it doesn’t lose its peaceful vibe – thus the small site has pleasingly spacious pitches but only basic amenities. Flick through the pics and you’ll note some gorgeous rural views: a fab backdrop for stoking up a barbecue while the kids race about playing games.

Admire those views for a bit and you’ll probably think you’re in the middle of nowhere, so it’s pleasing to remember that you’re a mere 10-minute amble from Illogan village and its pub, shops and chippy (plus a pasty shop, of course – a staple in these parts). If you’re doing DIY dins, supermarket supplies for your meals can be picked up in Redruth, 10 minutes’ drive away.

You could spend many a day wandering on local trails and beaches, but if you’ve brought the kids it’s handy to know that you’re less than 15 minutes’ drive from all sorts of family attractions, including a castle, a trampoline park and a watersports centre. It’s also just a mile or so to the A30 for those looking to head to more far-flung attractions like St Ives or the Eden Project.

Directions


Coming from Redruth, enter Illogan coming up a large hill. At the brow of the hill you will see two chapels opposite one another. Take it slowly here, as the site is 50 yards further on, on the right-hand side opposite a little crossroad sign for Richards Lane. Look out for a concrete lane with central grass verge between two white cottages; this leads up to the site.

Local attractions

Beach time! It’ll take you 45 minutes or so to walk to the sands and rockpools of Portreath beach (or 10 minutes to drive), or 15 minutes to drive to Gwithian beach for sand dunes and surfing. If you like your watersports to be lake-based, there’s plenty to keep you busy at Stithians Lake, 20 minutes away, including fishing, canoeing and windsurfing.

Away from the water, there’s a golf course and a network of walking and bike trails 10 minutes away at Tehidy Country Park, and historic wandering at the Heartlands mining-themed attraction (10 minutes’ drive) and Carn Brea Castle (15 minutes). Bouncy kids need somewhere to expend some energy? Off to the Jump4 trampoline park (10 minutes’ drive) with you.

Folk looking to tick off lots of Cornwall’s main hotspots may also like to set their sights on the art galleries of St Ives (25 minutes), St Michael’s Mount (half an hour) or the Eden Project (45 minutes).
