Rural Camping in Cornwall

Rural camping introduces the whole family to a slower pace of life. Leaving work, school, and the usual routine behind you! With nowhere to rush, families can totally immerse themselves in simple pleasures. From first arriving and pitching the tent or setting up a caravan, to cooking meals together on the barbecue, camping is a family friendly holiday. The beauty of camping is that you can make it as relaxing or as activity packed as you wish. Totally customisable, and completely affordable!

If you’re planning on rural camping in Cornwall, you’re probably eager to get back to nature and experience a simple way of living for a while. Cornwall is a popular choice for UK camping holidays as it has such a mild and sunny climate. With our many golden beaches around the coast of Cornwall, you can easily spend your days relaxing in the sunshine and swimming in the sea. Pop out for traditional Cornish cream tea and a stroll around a coastal town. Bring your bikes with you and enjoy cycling through the Cornish countryside, or your hiking boots to follow a few local trails.

Our Cornish rural campsite has a very special extra feature, which a lot of campsites don’t benefit from. We have our very own designated campfire area in a secluded area away from any pitches, called The Stone Circle, where we encourage you to join your fellow campers for a cosy campfire and get to know them. Perch on one of the granite stones with glass of wine, and enjoy the warmth of the flickering flames! Surely there is nothing better on a Summer evening than lying back on watching the stars, next to a blazing campfire.

Our campsite is set in 4 acres of quiet countryside, where we encourage wildlife and nature to stay with us. Butterflies are in abundance around the site and hedgerows, and in the heat of the Summer you can spot dragonflies and swallows over the long grass. Penhalvean Pottery Campsite lies in the hamlet of Penhalvean, in the parish of Stithians, Cornwall.
