Higher Penderleath Caravan and Camping Park: Edin field

General

  • A quick drive from St Ives
  • Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
  • Family- and dog-friendly park

If you're after a Cornish holiday set in the county's southwest and within seriously simple reach of the arty town of St Ives, have a look at highly regarded and family friendly Higher Penderleath Caravan and Camping Park: it's only five minutes' drive from the town centre and handily set for getting around the spectacular scenery of the Land's End peninsula.

Nature, walks and calm quiet days are in these parts too, as Penderleath is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty among the microclimate of Penwith, with easy access to the South West Coast Path running along Cornwall's entire coastline. The site is easy to get to from the A30.

The owners take pride in the clean and friendly atmosphere of their park, and have updated the original granite barns into swish site facilities of a licensed bar, spacious games room and a family room. There's also a beer garden and a play area for adult relaxing and kids letting off steam.

Other facilities include toilet blocks with free hot showers, a launderette and a washing-up room, and a small shop stocked with essentials and gas bottles.

Please note

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Coronavirus update: Showers and Toilets will be open but with social distancing in place there will be queues. Guests are encouraged to be as self-contained as possible (bringing your own portable toilet, at least). Some of the other on-site facilities will not be open this year.

  • Liked: 

    Plenty of space, pitches reasonably flat and electric hook up worked fine

    Disliked: 

    Shower block was reasonably clean although toilet paper in men’s ran out and wasn’t replaced for last 2 days. Lighting in shower block was triggered by movement but only if you were moving in the corridor- if you were in the shower it timed out and you couldn’t trigger it to come back on without coming out of the shower.
    Children’s play area is in a poor state of repair with several items unusable which was hard to explain to my 2yr old granddaughter!

    We stayed at Higher Penderleath Campsite, and we had a wonderful time. Owner was very welcoming, and the facilities were very clean, equipped and decent toilets and showers with hot water. The campsite plot was very big, with use of eletric (if you booked), we took a tent, gazebo and a van which fitted easy on our plot. Very short drive to the town centre which is breath taking and amazing. The roads were quite windey and small but it took less than 10mins to get into the centre. The location was perfect. The bar was open everyday and could go up for a quiet drink and to sit in the beer garden. We very much loved our holiday with the circumstances Covid 19, it was very well managed and restrictions in place. I will defiantly be returning to this campsite next year.

Local attractions

The art galleries, craft galleries and inns and restaurants of St Ives are all easy to get to from the site, as it's only five minutes' drive from the town centre. Parking can be a bit tricky in town in high season, so save stress – and cash – by taking the bus, running five times a day from right outside the site.

St Ives's beaches are among the many highly scenic swathes of sand around Higher Penderleath Caravan and Camping Park and the Land's End part of Cornwall, almost all with easy access to spectacular walks along the South West Coast Path where short stretches or longer hikes in either direction are easy to find.

Penzance five miles from base is a 20-minute walk from Cornish landmark St Michael's Mount, the tiny tidal island linked to the town of Marazion by causeway. Further along at 16 miles is Land's End, via Porthcurno and the smashing cliffside Minack Theatre.

Must see

  • Tate St Ives (2.4 miles)
  • St Michael's Mount (4.9 miles)
