General

  • Back-to-basics pitches next to a traditional Cornish country pub
  • A five-minute drive from St Ives and 10 from Carbis Bay beach
  • Friendly pub with home-cooked food, beer garden and gorgeous views

Chug on over to The Engine Inn, a traditional pub in rural Cornwall five minutes’ drive from the sought-after seaside town of St Ives, for cosy times in a friendly inn with real log fires, snug seating and a fine selection of local ales, ciders and spirits to go alongside the home-cooked meals. Just outside is an enormous beer garden with cracking views of the gorgeous surrounds plus a play area for kids who don’t have such an interest in taking in the scenery...

Pitches here also come with those splendid views – so setting up a camping chair, opening up a bottle of Cornish ale and surveying the area’s a top way to while away your time on a hol here – and allow you access to amenities within the pub during opening hours (please be aware, however, that there are no separate facilities in the pitches field).

To keep the whole site as safe and peaceful as possible, car parking isn’t allowed on the pitches but plenty of free parking is available a minute’s walk away from the field, ensuring it's as easy as possible to access your ride and rev it over to the best attractions and activities nearby...

A central location between north and south coasts means lots of outings are in fact easily doable from here: Land’s End and the seafront Minack Theatre are all within 40 minutes’ drive and there are plenty of beaches to pick from too with Carbis Bay and Zennor (both under 15 minutes) being a couple of the closest for sunbathing sessions on the sand.

    We choose not to stay because the pitches for the motorhomes and campervans are next to the road and the car park. Tents can go on the grass field next to the pub on the other side of the road.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Drive down to St Ives for watersports on one of its white-sand beaches – there are surf schools galore in this wave-obsessed town – or peer at the artwork in both the Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden (five minutes in the car).

To eye up the birds instead travel to the RSPB Hayle Estuary 10 minutes’ drive away; if kids aren’t interested in watching out for wigeons and teals, you might rather let them flit about at the Paradise Park and Jungle Barn animal park and play centre around the same distance.

Five minutes further from the park is St Michael’s Mount, best visited at low tide to cross over the bay and onto the isle by foot, while the Geevor Tin Mine’s educational underground tours take 25 minutes to reach.
