The Old Stables Campsite: Sunny day

General

  • Simple site in south Cornwall, five minutes' drive from a surf beach
  • A 20-minute drive from St Ives, Scilly ferries and St Michael's Mount
  • A five-minute drive from a pub and a farm shop

Surf beaches? Coast walks? Simple outdoor down time with peace and seclusion thrown in? Ride up to The Old Stables Campsite, a back to basics and back to nature spot in Cornwall, five minutes’ drive from the top surf beach of Gwithian Towans.

There's plenty of wide open space here, so guests can laze about and take in the views towards St Ives Bay. Amenities include showers, toilets, a washing-up area and a tap for water; apart from that, it’s you, the sky and the sea… what a combo.

However simple you like your stays to be, it’s handy to know that the site's a five-minute drive or a 15-minute walk from the village of Connor Downs where there’s a pub with food. A farm shop and restaurant selling and serving up fresh local produce is two minutes’ drive away; for more serious stocking up, it’s a 20-minute drive to Penzance.

Hit the beach five minutes’ drive away for surfing, bike hire and to join up with the mighty 630-mile South West Coast Path.

Drive for two miles through Connor Downs village, turning left at the junction for Gwithian. Drive over the carriageway and take the third turning on the right with the bold signage.

Local attractions

The beaches along this stretch of Cornwall’s coast are top spots for watersports, nature walks and the simple pleasures of splashing in the sea. Walk the coast path up to the more secluded sands at Godrevy (a 10-minute drive), then onwards to spot seals from Godrevy Point.

For days away from the waves, there’s go-karting to be had at Hayle as well as animal encounters and indoor play at the Paradise Park and Jungle Barn. For something more artistic, make for St Ives (20 minutes) for a wander round the Tate Gallery and the studio of sculptor Barbara Hepworth or go underground on a walk through Cornwall’s industrial history at the Geevor Tin Mine (half an hour).

Penzance is your place for boat trips: fishing, seal spotting and dolphin watching as well as the daily ferries to the Scilly Isles (you can take the helicopter for a quicker trip). Day trips to this subtropical island group are very doable, with many visitors hiring bikes to explore the beaches or find spots to go snorkelling with the friendly grey seals.

For a closer island experience, take a 20-minute drive to Marazion then walk the cobbled causeway to St Michael’s Mount. It might involve a boat ride at certain times of day, so check ahead, but however you arrive you’ll find a treat on this island with its medieval chapel and castle, winding paths and nature-filled gardens.
