Higher Pentreath campsite is all about getting back to basics, taking away all the stresses of modern life and ensuring our customers are valued by keeping our prices the same all year round
Our campsite looks over the stunning mile long beach of Praa Sands, which is a short walk from the campsite. Set on the beautiful south coast of Cornwall we are in just the right location to explore Cornwall at its best.
We are a family run campsite which we opened in the 1950's, you may see a glimpse of the owner, a true, hardworking, cornishman (but no guarantees you will understand him though). We are rustic, proud of our heritage and we have camping in our blood. A particular fond memory would be when a television was moved outside to the garden to ensure our campers could watch the 1966 World Cup final, to see England win! We have many treasured memories like this and look forward to making many more.

We have a cosy 1 bedroom holiday apartment available to let for those that prefer a few more home comforts.
Coachmans is part of the old farmhouse and it's name was taken from when the stage coaches use to park their carriages on the farm when people would come here to stay (even then Higher Pentreath was use to hospitality!)
It is a 1 bedroom apartment with a small kitchen/lounge and bathroom.
Oven with hobs
Iron and ironing board
Garden furniture on the front lawn
And those famous views of Praa Sands Beach,
Rates are competitive and special offers are available in the low season.
Being in our stunning location of Praa Sands, we are spoilt for choice, with miles of coastal footpaths to explore(some starting from the farm itself) to the hidden gems just on our door step.
To let you into some of this areas little secrets heres a few handy tips:
If you like Praa Sands beach but want it a bit more secluded go to the Rinsey end, (go into Praa sands and turn just down from the post office) park up and you will have you're own little slice of heaven.
Horse and Jockey in Helston (a 15 minute drive from our campsite), their flaky pastry, skirt beef ones are amazing!
(We love) Little Pengelly farm, (a 15 minute drive) its like walking into someones beautiful garden, its small and intimate but you are always greeted by a smiling face and the most amazing home cooked food. They serve light lunches and afternoon teas. But please remember being in Cornwall we like you to embrace the cornish ways and ALWAYS put the Jam on first then the cream! (its a rule)
There is several within 5 minutes drive, both welcome families. The sandbar is a short walk from the campsite and a beautiful setting right on the beach, they serve lovely food and regularly has live music. Or there is the Falmouth Packet in Rosudgeon, it has won many awards for its outstanding food, including pub of the year. (It really is yummy!)
Roskillys is a little further a field, near st Keverne (approx a 35 minute car journey from the campsite), but worth the drive, its where the famous Roskilly ice cream is made, they do lovely lunches, the best ice cream and you can look around the working farm and maybe buy some souvenirs while you're there.
There is many other attractions to explore around our area such as:
the historic St Michaels Mount (7 minute car journey)
the most westerly point Lands End (50 minute car journey)
the theme park Flambards (15 minute car journey)
and the open air theatre cut out of the cliff, the Minack Theatre (50 minute car journey) this is a must, its stunning there and so different, the shows that are performed there come alive with the extraordinary setting!
We are based halfway between Helston & Penzance on the A394 road.
There are 2 roads that turn off the main road leading into Praa Sands we advise that you take the road which is next to the Filling Station, opposite is Newtown Angling Centre.
