Coastal Valley Camp & Crafts

Discover the peaceful Porth campsite named ‘Best Glamping in Cornwall’ in the 2017 Muddy Awards!

A small family site with a big atmosphere. Kick your shoes off, sit back with a tea or coffee, unwind and recharge in a beautiful landscaped valley at Coastal Valley Camp & Crafts.

The sound of the babbling stream harmonises with the robins and song thrush and without a car or house in sight, you have found a bit of Cornish bliss.

In the Spring the valley has a yellow and green palette, we have silver aspen trees, yellow gorse, daffodils and primulas. Spring lambs calling in the fields. In the Summer, the blue and lilac agapanthus and abundant buddleia attract the butterflies and dragon flies. Autumn brings plenty of berries to harvest, blackberries: sloe berries, rosehips.

Rabbits are a plenty on the land but you will need to keep a keener eye out for the deer and resident stoat, who forage under the maze of swallows and starlings.

You can choose from 25 generously proportioned pitches or our fun glamping options – the BBQ hut, airstream, pod or safari tent.

To make your stay at our beautiful campsite even more relaxing you can, if you wish, park the car up for days, since three of Cornwall’s best beaches in walking distance all accessed via public footpaths at the foot of the land. 1.25 miles, across the fields and headland is Watergate Bay, (with good restaurants, surf shops and Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen).  It is a 1-mile country walk to Porth Beach or to Whipsiderry beach (which has slightly steeper access and can be found between the other two busier bays).

During peak season we hold art and craft workshops for those that are keen to explore their untapped talents and have fun with us. Learn the arts of willow weaving, slate painting, jewellery making, wet felting and more.

If you enjoyed crafts, Sewing Bee and Great British Bake Off, you will love being part of this.
