Far from the crowds, closer to nature...
Cossetted by natural beauty and right next door to the world famous Lost Gardens of Heligan, the 5 star Heligan Woods Camping and Caravan Park is a magical, secret place. Once you discover it, you’re sure to come back again and again.
Visit spring, summer, autumn or winter and you’ll enjoy a holiday that’s light on crowds but abundant in nature. Whether you choose to pitch a tent, bring your campervan or caravan or stay in one of the well-equipped holiday homes there really is no better place to rest and recharge your batteries than in this beautiful 5 star accredited campsite.
Often described as a ‘Garden of Eden’, Heligan Woods appropriately sits next-door to the world-renowned Lost Gardens of Heligan, in the hills above Mevagissey Bay, Cornwall. In fact, you can simply step through a gate to get through to the gardens and lose yourself for hours there.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on one pitch.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
