Sunset Camping

11 units · Glamping, Motorhomes, Tents2 acres · Redruth , England
Peaceful Cornish Site, situated a few minutes drive from the A30 at Redruth, with far reaching countryside views. An ideal central base from which to explore Cornwall's mining heritage, beautiful coastline and quaint fishing villages. Dogs are very welcome. Feel at ease on every pitch at Sunset Camping, a quiet and very welcoming family-friendly campsite in central Cornwall. This west-facing spot is well positioned to soak up all-day sunshine and has some truly lovely views over the surrounding area. Here you can watch the sun setting over the sea, take an evening stroll along the coast at Portreath's dog-friendly beach (10 minutes' drive), or relax with your pet (if you've brought one) over an end-of-day barbecue or campfire back at base. As for your days, you won't be short of options to fill them here: this centrally located site is within an hour's drive of most of the Cornish mainland, with top highlights like the Lizard Peninsula, Falmouth, Newquay, St Ives and Padstow all easy to reach. Sunset Camping is in a particularly prime location for walkers and cyclists, close as it is to the protected coastal areas around Godrevy and St Agnes (both 10 minutes), the Coast To Coast Trail and the Great Flat Lode Trail (10 minutes), steeped in attractive country views and Cornish mining history. Redruth (five minutes) is conveniently close to hand too, with pubs, cafés, supermarkets, a cinema and a railway station where you can set off on car-free day trips. Even closer to home are a dog-friendly pub, a discount supermarket and a play park (at North Country) – all of these are within a handy 10-minute stroll.

Polgwedhen Lodge

1 unit · Glamping10 acres · Chacewater, Truro, England
Polgwedhen is the only lodge in these magnificent lightly wooded gardens, on the edge of an ornamental lake, home to wild ducks, moorhens, little grebes, dragonflies and damsel flies and a variety of pondlife. If you're quiet you may catch sight of deer, foxes and badgers wandering through at dusk as well as bats and owls. The bird watcher will not be disappointed; songbirds, woodpeckers, buzzards, swallows and herons are regularly sighted. From Polgwedhen it's possible to walk or cycle and join up with the Bissoe Trail which runs from Devoran to Portreath, and there are many other surrounding tracks. Both the north and south coasts are a short drive away, as well as many National Trust properties, the Eden Project, and the Great Gardens of Cornwall. Although Polgwedhen is surrounded by farmland it's a short drive to Threemilestone which features two convenience stores, a chinese takeaway and fish and chip shop. A couple of miles further on is our city of Truro. Whatever, your interests are there's something for you to do here at Polgwedhen.

Off the Beaten Shack

1 unit · Glamping4 acres · Launceston, England
Immerse yourself in nature away from the crowds in our unique, rustic and cosy cabin set in a secluded copse amongst nature. The ideal place to tour Cornwall, or simply shut yourself away to escape and recharge your batteries. Sit, relax and watch dragonflies dance over the pond, listen to the birds, bees and butterflies breathing in the fresh moorland air. We have a beautiful wild flower meadow, woodland paths and an area outside the shack with seating and pond. We would love to, but cannot accept dogs due to the wildlife pond in front of the shack and free ranging chickens. If you would like to bring other pets or very small dogs who don’t like water just please ask. We are be happy to accommodate parents with babies or toddlers, if requested in advance so we can put safety features in place. Older children are welcome, but to ensure they get the most out of their stay please request before booking as there is no facility for extra beds. Please note, the shack is chilly in Winter without the wood burner lit. If you don’t feel confident using the wood burner which makes it super toasty, then please reconsider your stay. There is a modern electric fire and bathroom towel rail/radiator. Heated blankets on the bed, rugs and throws are provided. We have installed WiFi and you can receive good phone signal and 4G on most networks. It is a short walk (150m?) to ‘off the beaten shack’, it is sometimes wet and muddy underfoot, but a wood chip pathway leads to the shack. It would not suit those with limited mobility. Local produce and Food Hampers are available but best be ordered minimum 48hrs in advance. Good quality Tea, coffee, hot chocolate and sugar provided. Large basket of logs and kindling is supplied (extra available to buy). Organic Eggs from our free ranging chickens available to buy.

Dog-friendly cabins in Helford River guide

Overview

Riverside pubs, tree-lined canal ways, and secluded beaches tempt travellers to the Helford River estuary on Cornwall’s south coast. On the north shore, visit the National Trust gardens of Trebah and Glendurgan, paddle around the creeks on a kayak or boat cruise, then ride the ferry across the river from Helford Passage. Wildlife-watching is the main attraction at the estuary, and there are plenty of opportunities. Enjoy bird-watching along the beaches, spot crabs and other sea life at Nare Point or Prisk Cove, and visit the Cornish Seal Sanctuary. There’s no camping along the riverside, but country campgrounds lie just a short drive away.

When to go

Summer is the most popular time to discover the estuary, when it’s possible to swim at the beaches. However, the best wildlife-watching opportunities are in autumn and winter, when migrating birds flock to Cornwall’s south shores. Tent camping in Cornwall is best from late spring through early autumn, but year-round camping is still possible with a caravan or motorhome. Ferries run across the Helford River between April and October. 

Know before you go

  • The Helford River lies between Falmouth Bay and the Lizard Peninsula, along the south coast of Cornwall. The north shore is about 9 miles south of Falmouth or a 30-minute drive. Passenger ferries run across the river to Helford village on the south shore. 
  • Facilities are limited along the river, so it’s best to bring everything you need with you. There are restrooms, a café, and a general store in Helford Village, as well as a few pubs along the north shore. 
  • Most campsites require advance booking, and many ask for the full payment in advance. Be sure to check opening dates, as many close in the winter months.
