Want to try camping, but apprehensive of leaving the 21st century comforts of home?  Camping holidays in Cornwall are for you.

The drained, easily accessible pitches are level and dry for a perfect tent construction environment- even if this is your first camping trip.

Camping in Tencreek offers first-time campers and veteran campers alike the opportunity to rough it without getting too dirty.  The sites offer free heated-floor showers and toilets, along with hand dryers, and even complimentary use of hair dryers for those of us whose hair simply won’t bend to our will without the use of heat-styling.

Concerned about where you’re going to charge your phone so you don’t miss out on any calls or emails from work?  They’ve got you covered there too.  For many of us, unplugging and escaping from work isn ‘t easy, but phone charging stations allow us to stay connected, which often alleviates the anxiety of getting away for a few days of peace with nature.

Cooking at your campsite is also made more convenient with the covered dishwashing stations, so there is no concern about bringing dirty dishes home, or having enough flatware to last you for a few days.  Simply wash everything after your dinner, and it’s ready for breakfast the following morning.  They also have water points throughout the pitches- no hunting for clean, freshwater streams to make sure you have enough water.

Perhaps you can’t imagine sitting around a campfire for days on-end with no form of entertainment?  Check out the Tencreek events calendar, which has festivals, concerts, and local events year-round, with enough variety to please even the most discerning of  event-goers.

Being cognisant of waste is important, and Tencreek has recycling and waste facilities throughout, in order to preserve the campgrounds, and to keep them clean and enjoyable for generations to come.

Veteran campers may prefer to head to Kilminorth Woods, a 45 hectare nature reserve inland at Cornwall.  The varied plant and animal species allow for exceptional wildlife sightings, and some extraordinary walking trails.  Also offered in Killminorth Woods- cycling and horseback riding for children and adults alike.

Cornwall is an idyllic setting for camping, while still offering the comforts of home.  Why not get out and give it a try?
