Camping pitch (added by manager 08 apr 2024)

  • Rural campsite with spectacular views, stargazing and gorgeous sunsets
  • Under 30 minutes’ drive from Boscastle, Padstow, Polzeath and Tintagel
  • Walking distance from local pub, café and the Camel Trail cycle route
You won't find bright lights or a noisy clubhouse at Camp De Lank – just peace, quiet and laidback, friendly vibes. This grassy site in Cornwall is all about the simple pleasures of outdoor life: stargazing, barbecuing and reconnecting with nature. Camp De Lank is a peaceful place where family and friends can reconnect, unwind and explore some of Cornwall’s most celebrated spots. Longstanding locals Kaya and her grandparents Jacqui and Jeff all look forward to welcoming you and giving tips on the best things to do in the local area. This 4.5-acre site has pitches with sweeping views over the local countryside, making Camp De Lank a spectacular place to be at sunrise and sunset. Facilities include modern and well-maintained toilets and showers, plus nifty extras like ice pack freezing and a battery pack charging service. Hand-made Cornish cocktails are delivered to the site once a week – get those pre-orders in to avoid missing out. Camp De Lank is in the small hamlet of Lank, two miles from the edge of Bodmin Moor and half a mile from the start of the popular Camel Trail bike route. Head to the latter to set out along 18 flat, scenic and traffic-free miles, or stick closer to base and pick up drinks and snacks at an off-grid cyclists' café (10 minutes' walk).

Non-electric grass tent, campervan or trailer tent pitch

Liked: Very well kept site Extremely peaceful We played some ball and had a bbq Was 3 other couples all very friendly and quiet Perfect place to switch off, listen to the birds and if you’re lucky like we were catch the sunset over uninterrupted countryside The reason we picked this site was due to its location so close to Old Hill Bike Park and it was the perfect way to relax before a day on the trails

Non-electric grass tent, campervan or trailer tent pitch

Liked: Lovely owners, fantastic views and great toilet and shower facilities - cleanest I've ever seen on a site! The owners run their own cocktail business and you could order them on request on site to be delivered to your pitch! A great little niche touch to the camping experience.

Non-electric grass tent, campervan or trailer tent pitch

Liked: A nice, quiet location (down some tight Cornish lanes - glad we didn’t have a Big Bus), and nicely done, clean facilities. Quiet too, as it was end of season: just us, a lovely group of local Girl Guides, and someone in the Shepherds hut. A really nice stay, at a great price, and central to a lot of the sights on Bodmin. Would definitely book again

Bell tent

Liked: Everything! It was so quiet and peaceful; the beds were comfortable. The facilities were very modern and kept clean and tidy. We loved the covered "kitchen" area and the fire pit. We are already looking to book again next year.

Disliked: It would have been nice to meet the owners and get a bit of information about the local area. But that's me being very nitpicky. We had a lovely time!

Local attractions

Feeling thirsty? Get set for very mellow times at Camel Valley Vineyard (15 minutes' drive/an hour by bike via the Camel Trail), where tours, tastings and wine by the glass (or bottle) are available for fans of English red, white and sparkling wine. Not that you'll want to be sampling their wares on an empty stomach – but there are plenty of foodie spots in Wadebridge (20 minutes), Padstow (30 minutes) and Polzeath (30 minutes) to see to that… As well as the Camel Trail, popular biking spots include Cardinham Woods (20 minutes) on the southern edge of Bodmin Moor and Old Hill Bike Park (10 minutes), a family-oriented set of circuits with all-weather trails ranging from green (balance bikes suitable) through to black (experienced riders only). If horseback travel's the thing, you're also just over two miles from Hallagenna Riding, an equestrian centre with activities for all abilities. Handily, Camp De Lank is within an easy half-hour drive of the Eden Project, where huge tropical domes will take you off to all sorts of far-flung habitats.
