    You’re never far from a campsite in Cornwall, which means there are lots of options for laidback breaks by the sea. But how to choose? Ask a local of course! Or even better, ask the discerning, style-savvy locals who hang out on Instagram. Each of these gorgeous indie campsites has been personally recommended (or tried out by Muddy editors) and chosen for their locations, facilities, views and atmosphere — with plenty of glamping options for camping softies too.
