General

  • Peaceful Cornish site 10 minutes’ drive from scenic sandy beaches
  • A 10-minute drive from Helston and 25 minutes from Penzance
  • Famed Praa Sands and Flambards theme park within 15 minutes

Do your family’s demands for hols hinge on proximity to shopping towns, whizzing rides and pristine beaches? Tick everyone’s boxes with a visit to Wheal Vreagh Farm, a family-friendly site 10 minutes’ drive from Helston.

The site is about 15 minutes from the edge of the scenic Lizard peninsula, putting plenty of stellar beach options including Praa Sands and Porthleven within easy reach. Porthleven is the nearer of the two, less than 10 minutes away, and is a top spot for paddleboarding and sea kayaking; further afield, sandy stretches at Polurrian and Mullion (both 25 minutes) have fishing and watersports, Porthkerris is 35 minutes away for diving and shipwreck scouting, and Newquay and Sennen Cove are about 45 minutes from base if surfing appeals.

For salt-free hours, make a high-octane day of it on the rides and coasters at Flambards Theme Park (10 minutes from the site), or opt for a day wandering the small shops and pretty streets of Helston, home to the famed Furry Dance.

After busy days, make a welcome return to the peaceful site, where unwinding and switching off is a simple matter of grilling up dinner on the barbie and basking in the quiet of the green and spacious grassy fields. Best of all? A washing-up area and launderette on-site mean there’s no need to spend hols dreading the pile of work that will await upon your return home…

    We arrived in the dark but the site was easy to find, great facilities on arrival and perfect location for exploring the Lizard for a couple of days. Close proximity to Porthleven for some food in the evening.

    Lovely spacious, level, landscaped pitches separated with low Cornish stone walls. Very friendly owners - gave great tips & advice on places to go & things to do (and fish & chip shop recommendations!). The shared facilities were kept spotlessly clean and Covid-compliant which made us feel perfectly safe.

    We stayed the last wkend in September, we had the field to ourselves. The facilities were immaculate, with good signs around about hand sanitizer and cleaning the area with wipes after you. The owners were lovely and lent us a electric hook up as ours broke.

    Site very quiet and secluded away from main roads. Lots of space for kids to play together. Off peak very quiet you could here a pin drop.
    Lovely owners, very friendly and accommodating.
    You will NOT regret this one. Perfect for longer stays and close to Praa sands, 10 mins by car, St Ives 20 mins quick access to all routes.

    We loved everything about this campsite, from the quiet but central location to some of the best beaches in the uk to the large pitches and spotless facilities but most of all, to the owners themselves Mark and Annette who couldn't do enough for us. We will DEFINATELY be back next year.

Local attractions

A 10-minute drive from the coast and the South West Coast Path, the site is well placed for scenic rambles along wild Cornish coastline. Particularly spectacular views are to be had in and around Marazion, where a glance seaward casts eyes on the stunning St Michael’s Mount (reachable at low tide along a causeway from the mainland).

That’s far from the only must-visit coastal spot hereabouts either: it’s a 45-minute drive to Land’s End, England’s most westerly point, for plenty of photo opps and a Cornish cream tea – that’s jam, then cream, people – before heading homeward.

Keen historians may be drawn to the grandiosity of the ruined but sprawling Godolphin House and Gardens, five minutes away, while budding horticulturists should smell the roses at Glendurgan and Trebah gardens (35 minutes), Trewithian Gardens and the Eden Project (both about an hour).

Town time can be spent wandering cobbled streets in pretty St Ives, exploring gardens, galleries and museums in Penzance (and boat trips to the Scilly Isles), or clambering around Henry VIII’s Pendennis Castle in Falmouth, all within about half an hour of the site.

Must see

  • Flambards (6.0 kilometres)
  • National Seal Sanctuary (9.1 kilometres)
  • St Michael's Mount (11.0 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Godolphin (2.3 kilometres)
  • Penrose Estate: Gunwalloe and Loe Pool (5.1 kilometres)
