Callestick Camping: The view from the camping field

General

  • Wild camping field with spectacular views over Cornish countryside
  • A 40-minute drive to the Eden Project, and 20 minutes to Newquay
  • Spacious pitches on a 25-acre site; campfire area available

Callestick Camping is at the top of a valley overlooking the Cornish village of Callestick near Truro, with uninterrupted views to a historic tin mine over a patchwork of green fields. Families, surfers, walkers – and their dogs – all are welcome on this spacious site with an off-grid, wild camping vibe.

With 25 acres spread over four fields and only a small number of pitches, you all have plenty of space for playing with the kids and walking the dog safely. Tucked into a sheltered corner of one field is a communal campfire area, and you are welcome to have your own fire by your tent too – so you can be as sociable or private as you feel fit.

If you enjoy exploring on foot, the site is surrounded by green lanes, bridleways and coastal paths. It’s also located centrally, so most of Cornwall can be easily reached by car, from Lands End (50 minutes) to the Eden Project (40 minutes).

Perranporth beach has three miles of sand and fantastic surfing, with plenty of surf schools and hire shops available. From the camping field, it’s a 10-minute stroll into Callestick, home to a well-known ice-cream parlour and a cider farm.

This is very much a back-to nature-campsite without electricity, so don’t bring the hairdryer. There are toilets though, plus a gas-heated shower, chemical disposal point and a cold-water washing-up sink.

Please note

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.

Single-sex bookings of 4 or more people (couples and immediate family members excepted) are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro) and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

No cars/motorbikes by the pitch/unit. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Please note that the toilet/shower facilities are unisex.

Minimum spacing of 7 metres between pitches.

    Loved everything about the campsite - the location, the owners, the facilities were just what you needed. Amazed to find rattler cider farm just across the road, and had an amazing time surfing at perranporth and then eating and drinking in Newquay. Such welcoming and relaxed owners, really felt at home and will definitely be coming back! Oh and I can’t forget that Emma literally built our tent! We thought we were going to be sleeping in the car before she came over and saved us! Thanks again, had the best time.

    Absolutely fabulous host, really really enjoyed our stay with fab views and a complimentary cocktail on one of the nights! A friend and I went away for a week before going our separate ways for university and this campsite was the perfect place to stay being such good value and being only a twenty minute drive from pretty much any beach or point of interest around us. Although the shower facilities aren't luxury, everything is kept immaculately clean and we had a fabulous time here for a week. Would definitely recommend :)

    This campsite was amazing before we even got there!, we received an email before hand with directions leading us to the campsite(the instructions were clear and very easy to understand) showing that there are very organised people running this site. We had a few events occur that put us in very sticky situations while visiting Cornwall and the campsite when they were need responded efficiently and were very supportive. I would 100% recommend this campsite to everyone and once again thank you for the amazing hospitality!!

  • Liked: 

    Very nice view from campsite. Affordable for a good weekend away with the local surrounding area within not long of a drive. Close to the cider farm (less than a 5 min walk). Lovely owners with a good attitude to the visitors. Tent pitches are a good size and can fit a lot into the slot given. All facilities within minute walk of your tent pitch. Very good little campsite and not too busy.

    Disliked: 

    Cannot park car next to pitch but is understandable as to why you can’t do so.
