Back-to-basics camping with views of the sea in walking distance of St Agnes

With views of a tin mine and the Atlantic Ocean in one direction and rolling countryside in the other, Sunny Corner Campsite is as rooted in North Cornwall as campsites come. It’s within walking distance of both the surf at Trevaunance Cove and the village of St Agnes where pasties and cream teas are among the local treats on offer. And the campsite itself offers something typically Cornish too – a warm and friendly welcome with a laid-back approach to life on site.

This simple site occupies five acres in the teeny-tiny village of Wheal Kitty, overlooking the chimney stacks of the Wheal Kitty mine. It’s a flat field with a pitch-where-you-please policy and simple facilities that are just enough when you’re planning on spending all day on the beach: hot showers, flushing loos and handy USB charging ports to keep your phone topped up. It’s worth noting that campfires are a no-no here, but barbecues are a-okay as long as they are kept well off the grass. The on-site kids’ play area makes it family friendly and dogs are welcome too.

The South West Coast Path passes nearby and offers the perfect place for walkies, whether you’ve brought the dog or not. You can use it to head out on a long hike exploring more of this part of Cornwall’s tin-mining heritage or just to get to the beach. The closest is Trevaunance Cove, a mixture of shingle and sand which is ripe for swimming and surfing. At low tide there are opportunities for rock-pooling too and you can even walk round to another beach at Trevellas-Porth cove – but keep an eye on the tide. A bigger beach at Perranporth is about four miles from site and Newquay is seven miles beyond that. The arty harbour town of St Ives with its galleries and shops is about the same distance south west. If you want to explore the North Cornish coast on a back-to-basics camping holiday, you’re unlikely to find a base that’s better than this Sunny Corner.

Tin mines, cool coves and steam railways… Sunny Corner is a top pick for laidback outdoor breaks on Cornwall's north coast. Small and well-maintained, this campsite is in a five-acre field on the edge of the village of St Agnes with stunning sea views, spacious pitches and easy access to all the village's amenities (about 10 minutes' walk away). Families certainly aren’t forgotten here, as the site is well-equipped for all ages. There’s a spacious play area where the kids can blow off steam and make new friends in a safe and welcoming environment. And in terms of practicalities, Sunny Corner has functional toilets and showers for guests, all of which are well-maintained and a short walk away from the pitches. Sunny Corner is in the area of St Agnes known as Wheal Kitty, so you’ll only be a short five-minute walk from the historic buildings of the Blue Hills Tin Mine, where there’s a small exhibition about Cornwall's industrial past. Trevaunance Cove, a spectacular lifeguarded beach, and the more secluded Trevellas Cove are around a 10-minute walk away, while other coastal havens like Perranporth can be reached in as little as a 10-minute drive. Food on the brain too? Don’t worry, as you’ll be well-set with a number of family-friendly cafés, pubs, restaurants and a couple of small supermarkets in the village that are easy to reach on foot within roughly 10-15 minutes.

Lovely site to camp on. We went the last weekend of summer holidays and it was super quiet. Loved the showers/toilets/ mobile charging points.Sarah thought if everything in the toilets /showers with wipes/bags, air fresheners, mops which encouraged everyone to keep clean. Great location as easy walk to St Agnes beach or to the shops. Morning walk to bakery along quiet village lanes was fun. Few minutes walk to watch the sunset and stunning coastline. Would come again, such a lovely area and relaxed atmosphere. The only thing I missed was hot water by washing up sink. Looking forward to visiting again.

Sunny corner is a lovely campsite, there is a lot of space and it is very peaceful with new and well stocked facilities. It’s a short walk into St Agnes or to the beach and coast path. There was excellent communication and information from the owners. I would definitely stay there again.

Cornish coast's little paradise
We loved this camping! It's a huge field with marked spots in which we could fit both our van and a picnic towel. We really had plenty of space. Plus there are showers and toilets available, kept really clean, and several outside sinks. With a short coastal path you can also reach the nearby beach. A wonderful place for our first night in Cornwall.
