A small family run campsite located on the famous ice cream farm, Roskilly’s. On the Lizard in South West Cornwall, the farm is remote and tucked away with a Cornish feel, yet there is plenty to do. The farm has a vast array of animals that you can feed, a large woodland and ponds walk where the cows may be grazing. There are also many stunning beaches and Cornish fishing villages a small walk or drive away. We have a restaurant offering lovely food all day from breakfast to dinner. During the summer season there is also live music performed by local bands on selected evenings. Our campsite offers large grass pitches for tents and camper vans as well as a pristine toilet and shower block and communal area.The operating farm with many farmyard animals and cows grazing nearby offers grass pitches in a peaceful field where the sun set’s beautifully in the evening. Easy and relaxing strolls around the woodland and pond walks or along the South West Coast path can be finished with our delicious ice cream made on the farm. Then you can pop into the restaurant for delicious wood fired pizzas and authentic Cornish food and enjoy live music and entertainment that’s often on. South West Cornwall also has many gorgeous beaches and some very unused, hidden beaches to be explored.

Roskilly Camping
Best place when visiting Lizard!
We loved staying at this camping during our on the road in Cornwall! The field for motorhome is big enough to have your own privacy and also a picnic table. Toilet and shower very clean + a very useful outdoor kitchen area. The gem of this place is the surrounding area though: animals of the farm, very close to the coast, an incredible restaurant with amazing food (the pizza was so - word of Italians) and the general atmosphere just so nice. Here you can also taste the famous Roskilly's ice cream right where it all started, we loved it - do not miss it. Definitely the best place to stay when visiting the Lizard peninsula.

Roskilly Camping
Nice to visit if it's quiet
We really enjoyed our stay at Roskilly. The farm is a wonderful place to visit, we rocked up on Thursday night to a live band, lovely food and a nice cool beer for the belly! It has cute animals and there is a cracking beach a short romp away. The camping side of things is however very basic. It's a field, which had more nettles than you'd like, with a festival style block of toilets/showers and a separate tent with limited communal facilities for washing pots, a kettle and a freezer. It was super quiet while we were there though which we enjoyed, with no more than 2/3 other campers around us, and the facilities were kept clean and tidy through our visit, if it had been busy I'm not sure we would have had the same experience. NGL the showers weren't great heat/power wise but good enough if you can channel your inner submariner! There wasn't any interaction with us from any of the staff about camping for the whole visit and there isnt any check in when you get there or anything which felt a bit weird, but kind of fell in line with the impression we got, that the camping had been very much tagged on. In short I'd like to recommend Roskilly for a visit (if for the ice cream if nothing else!) but only for a short stay, especially if you have kids with you, it's not somewhere you could comfortably camp for a week with the current facilities, most of the people we encountered only stayed for one.

Fabulous stay
I absolutely loved staying in Roskilly's. It wasn't great weather during our stay but that didn't stop us. We thoroughly enjoyed the music entertainment. Our favourite part about our trip was 100% the food. The woodfired pizzas and burgers were absolutely incredible. Wonderful people, wonderful animals and wonderful camping. We shall be back!
