  • Eco-friendly site overlooking the sea near St Just and Sennen beach
  • Communal barn, climbing frame and trampolines
  • Woodfired hot tub and communal firepit

Green camping on partly-cleared moorland (which is part of a heather regeneration project) in south-west Cornwall. The site overlooks the sea and is near the small town of St Just and Sennen beach. This is wild west Penwith, so be prepared for all sorts of weather, wildlife and birds, and compost toilets. It's near a very minor road that wiggles from farm to farm for about three miles between St Just and Sennen.

The owners aim to keep prices on the cheap side. Facilities include a large, dry barn used as a communal space where you can socialise, read, or make music or a cup of tea on a wet day. The low-level climbing frame, trampolines or a game of football will keep the kids amused in the evening while you relax and watch the sun set over the western ocean.

Water is provided by a modern hand pump from a deep borehole: it's clean and very cold. The site also has an unheated shower, a wash area and a sink, as well as a communal firepit and (if you stick some firewood under the tank) a hot tub. The newer of the two compost toilets has a door and a seat.

The hot tub is free of charge but campers must provide their own firewood (available in bags from a shop about three miles down the road) and you have to fill it yourselves (with hand-pumped water from the borehole).

Please note that Numphra Downs isn't a commercial site and doesn't have hot or mains water, electricity or flush toilets. It's particularly suitable for those looking for 'wild' or 'quiet' time close to nature: groups, artists, writers etc.

Parents must take responsibility at all times for you and your family's safety, especially around campfires, toilets, play equipment, and wildlife (e.g. adders).

Please also note that the site can be windy.

Take the A3071 St Just road for about 6 miles west out of Penzance (if going through Penzance just keep going around the ring road and turn right at the last roundabout). Around 3/4 mile before St Just, the road goes over an angled crossroads at which you need to turn a hard left (signposted to Numphra and Sancreed).

Continue up here about 300 yards, taking the second turn off on the right (there's a small sign to Roselands Caravan Park). Follow this road as it passes the caravan park on the left, winds right and left through a farmyard (Little Dowran), goes down and up a small hill and turns hard right past the dirt track (signposted to Bartinney Barns) on your left. After another 100 yards, there is a big metal gate (into an apparently empty field) on your left there is a painted sign saying Numphra Downs Farm. Drive in, park at the bottom of the field (see the barn and trampolines) and put up your tent.

Local attractions

Sennen and Gwenver beaches are great for surfing. The area is wonderful for walking (especially through the wild flowers in the spring) and cycling. Lands' End, Penzance, the Tate Gallery at St Ives and other attractions are near enough for a rainy day.

Three miles away, sea surrounds thepsite in three compass directions, with many wild coves and secret places to explore. There are rockpools to swim in, bays to snorkel with the seals and fish, the coastal footpath (and its links), artists' studios, cafés, ancient sites, stone circles and monuments, and of course the local celebrations in St Just (Lafrowda) and Penzance (Maisey Day).

Folk clubs, real ale and good ethical food, fresh fish, trips to the Scilly Isles, surf schools, kayaking, horse riding and birdwatching are also within reach.
