Higher Pendeen Camping requests that guests only use ecologically friendly toiletries and detergents, to ensure minimal impact on the environment. We can provide links to help you source them if needed.
Cars are left at the small grass car park and your tents or pitches are a few metres away on the main camping site. There is a wheelbarrow to help transport your bags to your pitches. We are a ten-minute walk across the farm to the beach at Mawgan Porth. Mawgan Porth also has good access to a coastal bus route and the South West coastal path. We regret that due to the rural geography of the site, including some slopes, it may not currently be suitable for persons with mobility restrictions, please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss.
At certain times of the year, we have our own eggs, homegrown vegetables and fruit for sale on an honesty basis.
We are sorry, but we are currently unable to accommodate Camper Vans or Motorhomes. Camping Pitches and Bell Tents only.
