Sunny day on site

General

  • Relaxed farm site half a mile from the South West Coast Path
  • 2.5 miles from Boscastle and five from King Arthur land at Tintagel
  • Stunning views and excellently-kept amenities

If you're striding out on the South West Coast Path (and if you're staying in Cornwall or Devon you absolutely must), you might like to try an especially handsome section to tackle, the four-mile hike from Boscastle to kingly Arthur's old castle of Tintagel: it's utterly majestic.

How timely, then, that the path and the route to Boscastle is a mere half-mile from Lower Pennycrocker Farm, in a coastal location most convenient for this traipse and other top-hole Cornwall attractions. (For example, it's a few minutes' drive from cracking surf at Crackington Haven and seven miles from much more of the foamy same at Bude).

The views in this part of the world – from both the site and the cliffs on its doorstep – are fit for a king, which is probably why the vicinity's been crowned as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty... Bodmin Moor is about seven miles away and if it's urbanity you're after, Boscastle is two and a half miles away and Wadebridge and Port Isaac within 30 to 40 minutes' drive respectively.

All is royally relaxed on this laidback farm, with free hot showers and spankingly clean amenities all round. A farm shop is about five minutes away by car… or you could wander down to it via the coastal path.

Dogs are allowed at Lower Pennycrocker, but please keep them on leads and exercise them away from the farm.

Please note

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

Single-sex bookings of 8 or more people (couples and immediate family members excepted) are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

    Owners were very friendly.

    Disliked: 

    Lack of cleaning in toilet, shower and washing up areas. Not just because of covid but no basic cleaning appeared to be done.
    Showers were luke warm and could have been hotter.

    A small point but the water could have been a little hotter but there were signs up to let you know the times the boilers would be heating that were really helpful and I still had a good shower in September!

Local attractions

Start off on that South West Coast Path near Lower Pennycrocker Farm: you'll be on the path within half a mile of base and the Boscastle to Tintagel Castle leg starts two and a half miles from there, passing splendidly-named landmarks like Firebeacon Hill, Rocky Valley and Barras Nose.

The nearest beach to the farm is Crackington Haven, less than three miles away, around a coastal village with a shop, two small cafés and a pub. The beach is lifeguarded in summer, as are the ones at Bude, a 20-minute drive away; both are sublimely good surfing spots and popular with families. Never tried it? Enrol in a surf school at Bude or several other beachly locations within a short drive to find out more.

If you're wandering just to Boscastle or stopping off there on the way to Arthurland, make time for a captivating afternoon in the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic, apparently 'held in high esteem by the British occult community' (hurrah). A visit to the pottery shop and a picnic overlooking Boscastle's harbour should very much be on the cards too.

Other options in the area include tackling the golf course at nearby Camelford (other decent courses are at Bude and Launceston), or a meander around Bodmin Moor: see if you can spy the famous beast.
