Cadgwith Camping: Camping field

General

  • Dog-friendly site on a working dairy farm on the Lizard Heritage Coast
  • A 15-minute drive to Kynance Cove; access the South West Coast Path
  • Barbecues and campfires allowed; pub within 15 minutes’ walk

If hiking all around the Lizard Peninsula has long been on your bucket list or even if it’s your first time hearing of its sweet coves and southwesterly sea views, Cadgwith Camping will let you crack the coastal code. From this dog-friendly site on a working dairy farm with naturally splendid seaside scenery, you’ll be well-set to forge your way towards nearby beaches, chomp down on local seafood specialities and snorkel over the busy reedbed (or dive into the deeper sea from the rockside) at the National Trust's Kynance Cove, 15 minutes’ drive away.

Follow the sea breeze to the South West Coast Path, easily accessed just five minutes’ walk from the site. From here, you can hike to the lighthouse at Lizard Point (another National Trust site and the most southerly spot in the UK). En route, drop into Lizard village (also five minutes’ drive and a good shortcut to Lizard Point) for pubs/restaurants, cafés and food shops.

For some of the most scrumptious crab sandwiches around, stroll in the opposite direction through peaceful country lanes to Cadgwith (15 minutes’ walk or five minutes’ drive), where the food you’ll eat is caught pretty much straight from the sea. Let the staff point you towards a local who will take you out yourself, so you can see what you can reel in too. And afterwards, you can nurse a pint in the pub or browse the seafood market.

Take your catch back to the grill with an on-site barbecue or perhaps end the day beside the campfire, as they’re allowed on site too. Things are kept pretty basic here, as the site's geared towards wild camping with no hot water and portaloos – simply lay back and take in the sea views.

Please note

    Absolutely everything. This campsite is so great it should be a World Heritage Site. It’s literally on the Coast Path, a 10 minute walk to Cadgwith which is a glorious village and 40 minutes from Lizard. The views are phenomenal, the owners are a delight and make the stay so much more enjoyable. We can’t recommend this campsite highly enough, we’ve stayed at hundreds but this one takes every single biscuit.

    We loved everything about our stay! From the most friendly welcome, the field itself, the beautiful stunning sea view and the community spirit amongsth the farm owners, the welcome committee and the camplers. The toilets were clean and spacious and even found approval from the most fussy teenagers. At first, we were a little apprehensive about the 'wild camping' without a shower and solid toilet block. However, we loved all about it.The simplicity, one with nature and using a camping shower for the first time! Great experience and above all fun! It was great to experience about all the stuff we don't really need. Another highlight was the singing session around the campfire on Saturday that lasted past midnight (sorry forgot the name of the lovely gent who came with his guitars). Truly felt at home and as part of a new family. Will definitely return. What an amazing weekend!

Directions

Local attractions

If you’re still garnering after more sea and sand, there are two beaches (with pretty cool seaside cafés too) at Kennack Sands (10 minutes’ drive). And if you fancy a plunge or just a slightly more challenging dip, the local activity centre (10 minutes) will introduce you to the sea through coasteering, kayaking and paddleboarding.

There are walks and bays all around the Lizard Peninsula, but if you want something a little different, you can stroll through botanical gardens at Trebah Garden (35 minutes). Head a little further into Falmouth for Pendennis Castle (45 minutes), a pretty mighty fortress looking out to sea.

Big or small, kids are likely to find one of their favourite rides at Flambards Theme Park (20 minutes). If you’re willing to travel a little further, The Eden Project (an hour and 20 minutes) also makes an intriguing day out, as the domes are home to rather huge tropical gardens.

Must see

  • National Seal Sanctuary (7.8 miles)
  • Flambards (8.1 miles)
  • Trebah Garden (9.1 miles)

National Trust

  • Penrose Estate: Gunwalloe and Loe Pool (8.5 miles)
  • Glendurgan Garden (9.0 miles)
