Venn Down Lakes: View from the camping field

General

  • Family-run Cornish site with fishing and sea views
  • Two miles from Boscastle; Camelford five minutes' drive
  • Day tickets available for well-stocked carp lakes

Help yourself to a generous serving of fresh Cornish air at Venn Down Lakes, a 50-acre working farm roughly three miles from the north coast of Cornwall. This tents-only site gets extra marks for its sea views, with vistas that sweep all the way over the water to far-off Lundy Island on clear days.

The site has two coarse fishing lakes that are kept well-stocked throughout the camping season, so bring your rod, tackle and some bait along if you fancy buying a day ticket for a few hours of blissful peace and quiet.

You can hire a firepit on a nightly or weekly basis too, making it all the easier to enjoy the stars at night in this designated dark sky zone. Kindling and logs are sold on site and can be delivered to your pitch upon request. Please help look after the farm by not lighting any fires on the ground.

This is a simple site, but it does have basic services like well-maintained showers, portaloo-style toilets and picnic benches for eating in the open air.

For local amenities like pubs, cafés and shops, your best bet is to head to Boscastle or Camelford (both five minutes' drive).

Please note

Swimming in the lake is not allowed.

Group bookings of 6 or more adults are not permitted (couples and immediate family members excepted).

Protective masks must be worn at all times in common areas.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the park are unlit.

Owing to government regulations, groups of 6 or more people are not permitted.

Please note that the toilet/shower facilities are unisex.

    Have nothing bad to say! Views were amazing watching the sunset over the sea then looking up at the stars! Management were so friendly and helpful. Located really close to Trebarwith strand which was where we spent most our day time lying on the beach and swimming in the sea. There was also a lovely pub on the beach and a brewery located between the campsite and beach :) Everyone was considerate of each other you wouldn’t have known there was anyone else staying there! :) ... clean and tidy toilet and shower facilities. We loved it! :)

    Really enjoyed my stay here over the weekend. Lots of space to setup for camping, nice quiet area and excellent value. Did some fishing for the day and relaxed by the camp fire at night. Close to local amenities, very friendly hosts. Would definitely book again.

    Location is ideal, only a short journey to nearby coastal towns.
    Stunning coastal views and incredible sunsets!
    Very friendly and helpful hosts.
    Toilet and washing facilities are spot on.
    Lovely couple of fishing lakes at the bottom of the site. Perfect for a couple hours fishing.
    Would love to come back again soon.
