The Copper Pot Campsite: Brand new wildflower tent

General

  • Eco-conscious rural rental tents a mile from Lower Metherell
  • In the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
  • Bike hire on site and close to walking trails and canoe trips

To Cornwall, and Callington, and a cracking country break with a conscience. For not only is The Copper Pot Campsite in a most favourable location (bordering the National Trust’s Cotehele estate and in the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), it’s also been purposely set up with low-impact, eco-friendly stays in mind.

It’s possible to drive, of course, but the folks here are mighty keen to encourage guests to seek alternatives, and they’ve gone all out to ensure that’s as easy as can be. For starters, if you arrive by train (at Gunnislake, 10 minutes away) they’ll happily sort transport to whisk you to the site; from then on you can hit the local walking trails or hire their bikes for two-wheeled touring.

Carting heaps of caboodle around isn’t an issue either, as they’ve provided all the bits and bobs you need for a break (well, most of it – you’ll still need to provide your own pants and the like). Rental tents are already set up with beds and bedding, and there’s plenty of cooking kit to help you prep meals in the well-equipped kitchen or out at the two campfire/barbecue areas (if you’ve not toddled off to the pub 10 minutes away, that is).

Other facilities are, as you’d imagine, similarly eco-conscious: the off-grid tents have LED lighting and are a short stroll from a bathroom with compost toilets and hot showers.

Please note

No cars/motorcycles at the site. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

Continental touring caravans (caravans built with the door on the right-hand side) are not permitted.

Tents are not accepted at this park.

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

No bachelor/bachelorette parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

    This was an absolutely beautiful eco friendly site.
    We were greeted by the lovely owner James who gave us a guided tour when we arrived.
    We travelled as a family with two small children and a teenager. The site even though off grid had everything you would need for a stay including cooking utensils for the open fires and bbq. The tent was absolutely fantastic and clean and warm. The kids slept amazingly in their beds and so did we. Everyone enjoyed the communal feel of the fire pit and bbq sections and they especially loved making fires and cooking their food including roasting marshmallows. James provided wood at a small additional cost which was fantastic.
    The feel of the site is lovely. Being able to relax and enjoy nature was even better, especially hearing the owls at night and actually being able to see the stars in the night sky.

    We would definitely recommend this site and will definitely be coming back.

    Everything! The site is so beautiful, everything is sustainable and maintained wonderfully. The fire pit is gorgeous with plenty of space to sit and cook, the lovely owners cooked a huge BBQ for us one night which was just amazing. The tent is really comfortable with soft mattresses and bedding. There is a beautiful pub a short drive away called the White Hart with the most stunning views and food. The owners are so friendly and helpful - we can't wait to come back!

    We really enjoyed our stay. Watching the birds and taking photos from the kitchen, sitting around the camp fire as a family roasting marshmallows. They put on a BBQ which was lovely and owners are very friendly and always helped with anything you wanted or needed. It’s a great place to get away from the outside world and relax without the distractions of electricity. Clean facilities and hand sanitiser stations all around site.

    We loved this place, we felt like we were on a jungle safari, if you love being one with nature which we do, you will love it here also.
    It was a great relaxing place, the kids did not want to leave.
    Especially loved the kitchen area with stunning views, and communal area with firepit to roast marshmallows and chocolate biscuits.
    The owners couldn't do enough for you, and made us feel at home.

UNIQUE CAMPSITE- CANT WAIT TO RETURN09/29/2019

    We liked everything!!!!!! Best site weve visited!!!!
    We chose this site as it was parmount that we stayed in an environmentally friendly site that respects nature and has minimal impact on our surroundings, allowing nature to flourish.
    After a 4 hours drive with 4 high pitched 8-10 year olds ( birthday getaway) all our tension went away the moment we arrived. The host was amazing not to imposing but friendly, informative, approachable and warm. We were greeted on arrival and shown around the campsite so we get our bearings and begin having fun. The campsite was perfection compost toilets and showerroom were fly free, odourless and clean. The kitchen was thoroughly clean and had such an amazing view.
    Our tent was clean and we all slept well so beds had good mattresses and sheets were clean. What we particularly loved was the fact we werent crammed in and situated near to other guests. This gives guests the opportunity to relax in privacy and in our case meant that our noisy entourage didnt disturb others. Our tent had a firepit barbecue area a mere footsteps away and a little further was the communal fire pit. The children loved adventuring around the rustic scenery. We used this area to gain knowledge from our host to deter how we were going to spend our time here which (as an after thought) supports the local community eg. Local pub, shops, tourist industry.
    We are definitely returning.......but just the two of us for a couples getaway.......heaven. 😀

    Everything! This place is a little corner of paradise. The set up of each tent is perfect so that you aren't overlooking anyone else. Lovely communal areas with good utilities. Even the toilets were better than I had expected, having never experienced a compost toilet before!! Very clean, and didnt smell at all. The site owners are a delight, so friendly and helpful and they went above and beyond their role over the weekend. We loved meeting Hildy & Roxy too!

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

Kick off your local wanderings with an outing to the Cotehele estate: it’ll take you half an hour or so to walk over to the Tudor house to see the collections amassed by the Edgecumbe family over 600 years (including a giant pair of whale jawbones) and meander through the gardens and woodland paths. Trot back via Cotehele Mill to sample cakes and biscuits created from flour freshly ground with power from the Victorian waterwheel.

That cake isn’t just for fun – it’ll also provide essential fuel for guided canoe trips on the Tamar river from Cotehele Quay (an excellent excuse for a second biscuit), or a trip to the Tamar Trails Centre, five miles away, to walk the trails, career along the mountain bike tracks or pick your way along the treetop courses.

Biking types can also take the 20-minute pedal to the Drakes Trail for a traffic-free run all the way to Plymouth. If you have brought a car, it’ll take half an hour or to so get to Plymouth (to visit the aquarium, take a dip in the lido or sample the local gin), 15 minutes to the maize maze at Smeaton’s Farm or 50 minutes to the Eden Project’s famed plant-filled domes.

Must see

  • National Marine Aquarium (16.6 kilometres)
  • Dartmoor Zoological Park (20.4 kilometres)
