Wild camping is not technically legal in Cornwall, as most of the land is privately owned or part of designated areas where camping is not permitted without the landowner's permission. However, there are some exceptions. If you obtain permission from the landowner, you may be allowed to wild camp on their property. Additionally, there are many designated campsites throughout Cornwall that offer a range of camping experiences, from basic facilities to more luxurious glamping options.
