Little Winnick

Muddy says: A traditional family campsite, perfectly placed for exploring South Cornwall’s beaches, gardens and villages.

Little Winnick is a peaceful, family and dog-friendly campsite on the banks of the River Winnick, just a mile’s stroll from the golden sands of Pentewan Beach. It’s an absolutely perfect spot for exploring this part of South Cornwall, with woodland cycle paths leading to Pentewan, Mevagissey and The Lost Gardens of Heligan, direct from the campsite.

Pentewan Beach is ideal for families, with an ice-cream shop and plenty of rock pools to explore. The Historic village of Charlestown and sailing town of Fowey are on the doorstep and the Eden Project is just a short drive away. And don’t miss a roast at nearby Polgooth Inn! As well as everything to do off site, Little Winnick is a lovely place to while away a few hours by the river, either soaking up the sun tent-side or at one of the family, camp craft sessions held in the site’s idyllic meadow.

There are spacious pitches for tents, caravans and motorhomes, with a choice of grass or hardstanding, and WiFi (although you might be tempted to switch off for a few days). The amenities are top notch too – the site won Gold Loo of the Year award in 2015.
