Camping around Lansallos
Hidden down ever decreasing lanes you'll find Highertown Farm Campsite. It's small; it's simple and it's the perfect place to pitch up. Surrounded by fields and footpaths and a stone's throw from the beach - come and see for yourself.
Highertown Farm Campsite
Highertown Farm Campsite in Lansallos village is a small, green site with open views over farmland and the coastline of South East Cornwall. Walk down a wooded path and you'll discover Lansallos Cove, with its quartz-streaked shingle and tiny waterfall. Sit and relax, scramble over the rocks, have a paddle or head out along the coast path to Pencarrow Head in the west and Polperro in the east.
The site is small, simple and free from fuss and clutter, so it's a perfect place to stay if you want to get away from it all. Our local ranger team manage Highertown, so you may spot them on site, or out and about along the coast path.
Camping is in one main grass field with extra parking near the barn above. The field is gently sloping and we're mainly set up for tents, although smaller campers or caravans are welcome. There are no fixed pitches so campervans will need to stake your claim to the pitch if you're driving off for the day - just something to make it clear to new campers that the space is in use.
The site is popular, so we tend to get full in the school and public holidays. It's not a large site, with up to 65 people on site at a time. When we're fully booked we put up a sign on site and ask 'walk-ins' to respect this.
Lansallos is a very quiet village with no shops or pubs. Our friendly local grocer pops round with his mobile shop a few times a week in the summer months and there are shops in the nearby villages at Polruan, Polperro, Pelynt and Lanreath, and if you want to head for the birght lights, then you can go to Looe or Fowey. On the first Saturday of the month there is a farmers' market at Whitecross village hall too. There are pubs close by at Bodinnick, Polruan, Polperro and Pelynt too if you fancy a night off camp cooking or a cool drink after a hard day's relaxing.
We're really keen to make as little impact on the environment as possible, there are solar panels to heat the water, compost toilets that have enviable views and recycling bins.
When you arrive at the site, take a few minutes to read the notice board by the entrance to the main camping field. This tells you all you need to know about where to pitch up. The rangers come around daily and the campsite mobile phone number is written on the board by the wash house in case you need to talk to one of the team.
