Burrow Farm Camping

Can’t decide between Cornwall’s north and south coasts? At Burrow Farm Camping we are Adult only site, so you can bag yourselves a handy rural spot in the middle, then have both stunning stretches of coast to choose from on a daily basis…

We are a friendly family-run site, just outside the village of Blackwater, in a strategic position close to the A30 and A390 for easy jaunts to all the county’s popular attractions. That location puts north-coast spots like St Agnes and Perranporth within a 10-minute drive and south-coast draws including Falmouth, Trebah Garden and St Michael’s Mount about half an hour away (with plenty more to choose from around both coasts and countryside too).

We are Darryl and Claire with our two dogs, a charming canine pair who are always keen to say hello and are happy to share their home with visiting dogs (we are a dog friendly site). There’s always someone on hand to welcome you to the site, help you settle in and dish out local recommendations (perhaps pointing you to nearby walks and bike rides, or just to the nearest pub…)

This is a peaceful site with low-key facilities and plenty of privacy from its border of woodland.
We have three 5m bell tents, each comes with all bedding, can sleep up to 4. Extremely cosy feel, with a solar panel that provides power for charging 2 x USB power points. Each bell tent has its own kitchen shed, all kitchen utensils, cutlery, plates, glasses, mugs, airer and picnic table.
We also have five non electric grass pitches for you to bring your own tent and camping gear.
No parking allowed next to units as to protect the grass, there is a car park on site seconds walk away.
You’ll be staying on a well-maintained field with access to all sorts of essential facilities including toilets, showers, a washing-up area, a recycling point, communal kitchen facility that has a microwave, kettle, small fridge and fresh drinking water. You also have access to our lovely little woodland area to exercise your dog or just go for a little walk.
A pub, bakery and chain coffee shop are a couple of minutes’ walk away, with another pub, a convenience store and a bus stop a mile away in the village centre.

The north coast is the slightly closer one here, so it makes sense to start there – perhaps with an outing to St Agnes, Chapel Porth beach or the sweeping sands at Perranporth (all 10 minutes’ drive) or a walk on the South West Coast Path from whichever point you choose. Brought bikes? The Saints cycle trail passes by the site for easy trips to Perranporth or St Agnes).

Looking south instead, you may like to visit the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth (half an hour), stroll around the 26 acres of subtropical plant life at Trebah Garden (35 minutes) or cross the causeway to St Michael’s Mount (half an hour). Back up on the north coast, St Ives (35 minutes) and Padstow (45 minutes) are well worth visiting for their arty vibe and food scene respectively.

It’s not all about the coast of course – in between are places like Healeys Cornish Cyder Farm (10 minutes), Truro (15 minutes) and the Eden Project (45 minutes) – plus plenty of options for walks in the surrounding farmland and woodland.
