- 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).
Open from 07/01/2021 to 09/24/2021
