- Cornish beach
Whether you are here for surfing, strolling or just sunbathing, Cornish beaches are irresistible. If you've brought your tent, it makes sense to pitch up at one of these recommended sites for camping in Cornwall near the beach.
The Beacon Cottage Farm Holidays site in St Agnes (www.beaconcottagefarmholidays.co.uk) is perfectly-located, just a short stroll from the sands. The 60 well-spaced pitches offer great views over the wild north Cornwall coastline, with an excellent range of country and coastal walks direct from the campsite or around St Agnes.
Tristram Campsite in Polzeath is located on the gently-sloping clifftop above Polzeath beach. Don't be alarmed: the site is fenced-off and is safe for children. There is direct access to the beach from the site. Private toilets, showers and laundry facilities are available onsite, and there is a convenient restaurant right beside the site, with its own gardens. Booking and information is available on www.polzeathcamping.co.uk.
Namparra Campsite gives a real flavour of the Cornish coastal wilderness. It's an ideal base for exploring the coves at Kennack Sands, and enjoying a warming cup of tea at the beach cafe if the winds from the Atlantic get a little too bracing.
Treveague Farm offers one of the best sites for relaxed camping in Cornwall, near the secluded beach, and close to child-safe sands and intriguing clifftop trails. When they have had enough of exploring the beach, take the children to see the farm animals. Comfortable nearby pubs serving home-cooked meals mean you won't have to rely on your camping stove.
