Welcome To

View Gazing, Cornwall Loving, Memory Making.

Lets get back to basics.  Remember the holidays we had as kids?

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.

Whats Around

Whats Around

So whats around the area?

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.

Best Pasties (in our humble opinion)

Horse and Jockey in Helston (a 15 minute drive from our campsite), their flaky pastry, skirt beef ones are amazing!

Best place to go for a cream tea

(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)

Best pubs around

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!)

Best Ice Cream

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.

Other Attractions

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!
