General

  • In scenic countryside two miles from Helston and three from Porthleven
  • On-site owner with extensive local knowledge to offer advice and tips
  • Toilets, showers, fridge, freezer, firepit hire and firewood sales

Looking for a site surrounded by fields, with wildlife for company, no white lines and generous pitches? Get along to Cornwall’s Granary Barn Camping, in a rural setting and wildlife haven excellently set for hikes along the South West Coast Path: Porthleven is within 10 minutes’ drive for a stunningly scenic walk along to lovely Lizard Point.

Granary Barn’s owner Tom lives on site, so is available to share tips and info on what to see and do around this handsome part of Cornwall: you could investigate the historic events, boating lake – and pubs and pasty shops – around Helston, have several basking or swimming days at local beaches, or sort some sea kayaking and surfing from local watersports schools. Other top Cornish destinations like Praa Sands and Lizard Point are 10 and 25 minutes’ drive away.

The site is made up of one large meadow and two smaller ones, all flat and well-kept; guests can pick their own pitch. Handy amenities around the place include toilets, hot showers, wash basins, a fridge-freezer, drying lines, charging points, recycling and rubbish bins, firepit hire and firewood sales. Wifi is in the farmyard next to the pitching meadows.

    Campsite doesn't require country lanes to get to, easy driving distance from big main roads. Short drive to areas of interest and shops. Price is amazing, especially as it's equipped with toilets, very good showers, cleaning facilities for clothes and plates. Host is very friendly (saw him stay up to late to guide some delayed campers in!) and is always around to help.

    Disliked: 

    My only tiny tiny grumble is the exit to the campsite could do with one of those blind corner mirrors, but it's not a major issue!

    Our stay got off to a shaky start when I realised I'd booked the wrong start date, but Tom was very accommodating, and via a prompt reply of email confirmed we could arrive a day early. I booked for 4 nights but we actually stayed for 14, as the location is so good you can cover the Lizard and Lands End peninsulas fairly easily...we just worked our way through the walk book I bought on the first day. This excellent little field campsite, is tucked away from view and yet only minutes by car from all the supermarkets at Helston and the charming port of Porthleven with a multitude of eating out places nearby. Great for exploring the Lizard peninsular and the coast path, Penzance and Lands end area 30 minute drive away, as is St Ives.
    The owner Tom is always anxious to please and nothing is too much trouble, picking up our dustbin and emptying it each morning, gibing us the weather forecast and generally ensuring all is well and we are enjoying ourselves. The facilities are good, free wifi, microwave and toaster and electric kettle plus the aforementioned individual rubbish and recycling bins ! Showers are great quality and a £2 honesty charge applies, and the fridge, freezer and washing machine operate on the same basis. There is no on pitch electrics but there are a few 240v plugs where you can charge your devices. If road noise is likely to be a problem, pitch in the top field as far away as possible.

Local attractions

The former market town of Helston, now home to the famed Fury Dance, is just over two miles or five minutes’ drive south, forming a triangle with the Lizard Peninsula and Penzance. The lower part of the town has a boating lake, park, skate park and café.

Take the path from the boating lake to the National Trust-managed Penrose estate near Loe Pool, Cornwall’s biggest freshwater lake, then on to Porthleven, the UK’s most southerly working port. Your South West Coast Path hike from here (to Lizard Point or Marazion) has spectacular views over Mounts Bay including St Michael’s Mount… or just scramble down to the several beaches set around the bay.

Other attractions and activities include the Helston Railway line (five minutes’ drive), with a working section that offers rides, Flambards Theme Park (10 minutes), and Land’s End and the Telegraph Museum Porthcurno (and beach) both within 40 minutes. Watersporters have paddleboarding and sea kayaking from Porthleven 10 minutes away, a surfing school at Marazion (20 minutes) and a diving school at Portkerris, 35 minutes from the site.

You could also laze around lush Praa Sands (10 minutes), Lizard Point (25 minutes) or Land’s End (40 minutes), or take in a show at the famed cliffside Minack Theatre (45 minutes). And once you’ve intrepidly checked the above off your bucket list? Tom can share details of many lesser-known attractions for you to investigate next: you might need to book another week…
