Big Dunk likes to play games.
Specifically, he loves a game of footgolf on a sunny day. Yes that’s right, footgolf. For the uninitiated, it’s (perhaps unsurprisingly) a mash-up of football and golf, with players aiming to get the ball in the hole with as few kicks as possible. You’ll pick it up as you go along, but one of the main things to know is that it’s fairly hilarious entertainment…
Something else that Big Dunk likes is looking at the sea. So much so that he decided to combine two of his favourite things and open his own footgolf course a mile from the Cornish coast, up on a slight hill for great sea views. And so that you too can share in the big guy's happy place, he’s now inviting you to come and stay at Big Dunk's Sea View Campsite.
It is (by Big Dunk’s own admission) a fairly basic site, but the two well-kept grass fields (one dog-free) have plenty of space. There are composting toilets, as well as a kitchen sink unit with mains water and a mains tap. The site doesn't have showers, but a leisure centre is four miles away and the sea within 15 minutes' walk.
You’re welcome to light up a barbie on your pitch, or you can pick up hot food to take away. (The famed pulled pork rolls, made with free-range meat from Dunk’s own farm and topped with cheese and crispy onions, are really rather spectacular). The site also sells drinks and Cornish ice cream.
If all of this sounds appealing, make haste – Big Dunk’s Sea View Campsite is a pop-up that’s only around for a few weeks in the summer.

From the manager...
I built the toilets myself, I have a YouTube video of the build, if everyone adds some sawdust then there are no more bad smells than a WC, like you say sometimes it smells a bit of damp wood. Think of how much water we save not flushing it all out into the sea
From the manager...
Sorry about the dogs, I did ask them nicely a couple of times, the third time I was less laid back and friendly and that worked. The bank holiday weekend is always busy and I know there was a wait for toilets in the mornings but we now have doubled toilets to 4 + have an urinal also so that should cut the queue
Pretty much everything was great about the site. Yes it's …

Footgolf isn’t the only game that Big Dunk enjoys – he’s also partial to paintball, laser tag and combat archery, so he’s set these at Big Dunk's Paintball, five miles away. Active types can also have a surf lesson from the experts at Trebarwith Sands Surf School, a mile from the site.
A good place for a walk is St Nectan’s Glen, a 45-minute walk or 10-minute drive away. Here you can walk through woods and along the banks of the River Trevillet to find waterfalls, a hermitage and maybe even some of the fairies that are rumoured to live around here…
Further otherwordly exhibits are on display at the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic in Boscastle, 15 minutes’ drive away. If your interests lie more with World War II, plot a course instead for the Davidstow Airfield & Cornwall At War Museum to see memorabilia including uniforms, planes, posters and recreations of life in the officers’ mess and the sleeping quarters.
