Highertown has enough space to run around or find a quiet corner and relax

Highertown Farm Campsite is a small, idyllic campsite with fine views of the South East Cornwall coast.

The campsite is in the quiet hamlet of Lansallos. It's a pleasant 3/4 mile walk from a secluded beach and set next to a stunning coastal landscape that is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

The campsite is ideal for anyone who wants a quiet rural campsite. It offers quick access to the South West Coast Path and beautiful beaches and coves such as Lantivet and Lantic Bays. It is also within striking distance of the coastal villages and towns of Polperro, Fowey and Looe, and the attractions of Lanhydrock, the Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan.

Our ranger team in South East Cornwall manage the site, along with miles of coast and countryside from Whitsand Bay in the east along to Gribbin Head in the west.

We are dog friendly, asking visitors to keep their pets on a lead at all times on site.

We also run a quiet site policy so you can rest assured from 11pm to 7am each night.
