Campsites in Cornwall

Cornwall has so many campsites we’d forgive you for feeling overwhelmed when trying to pick one. To make it a bit easier for you, Constance’s owners Steph and Tom have helped us out by providing a great round up of campsites in Cornwall.

All of the campsites below have been recommended by previous Quirky Camper guests. Don’t forget during busy periods and holidays to call where possible in advance to book a pitch/check there is room.

For Quirky Campers in Cornwall, see our fleet and availability here.

Elm Farm (in between Portreath and Porthtowan)

Elm Farm is quite a small site, but perfectly formed. It’s a hit with cyclists – it even has its own bike shop and hire business and a discount is offered on hiring bikes when you camp here (the flat cycle route runs coast to coast).
