East Crinnis Farm
East Crinnis Holiday Park, East Crinnis, Par, Cornwall PL24 2SD
Ask ten different campers to explain their favourite thing about East Crinnis Farm and you’ll probably receive ten different answers. Some may like its peaceful rural setting, others might opt for the sparkly-clean facilities and some may even choose the tasty Cornish pasties, served over a night of storytelling round the campfire. Whichever facet of this family-friendly campsite takes your fancy, you will undoubtedly enjoy this rustic retreat in the heart of Cornwall, where time seems to stand magnificently still.
The range of camping experiences on offer is pretty impressive. Traditionalists can pitch on one of the large, flat, grassy spaces, which are secluded by hedges. Even the most seasoned camper can admit to occasionally wishing they didn’t have to faff around with last night's washing up, so for those in search of creature comforts, yurts and log cabins are also available. The yurts are situated in an exclusive area of the site (with wonderful south-facing views across the valley) and come equipped with a log burner. Come nightfall, glampers can peel back the canvas roof to reveal the starry skies above.
Although this is essentially a rural location, East Crinnis is only a short jaunt to the beaches, ice cream kiosks and breathtaking scenery of the Cornish coast. Cyclists will enjoy the moors and mineral trails; water-sports fans the waves and weaving estuaries; and hikers the South West Coastal footpath, which towers above the high cliffs of nearby Crinnis beach. But it’s not all about the great outdoors; the nearby traditional fishing ports of Mevagissey and Fowey both offer a pleasing variety of cuisine, activities, and shopping, plus their own summer festival season.
After a busy day discovering the ancient kingdom of Cornwall, it’s time to switch off the car engine and wind down. In fact, it’s probably best to forget coming here without your own transport, as there’s no bus stop close by. Despite East Crinnis Farms’ wide range of facilities, the general ambience of this place is far away from the ‘holiday park’ vibe you might expect. And as the night draws in, parents sweep up their offspring and head for a sing-song and snacks round the campfire. This is camping as it should be; a lovely atmosphere in a special location.
The Owner SaysA rural camping and glamping retreat in the heart of Cornwall, where time stands magnificently still. Although this is essentially a rural location, East Crinnis is only a short jaunt to the beaches, ice cream kiosks and breathtaking scenery of the Cornish coast. And the world renowned Eden Project is only 2 miles down the road!
We have just spend 4 nights at East Crinnis and have nothing to complain about, it's a very clean campsite with everything on site. The little shop provide everything from toothbrush to wine, and all the essentials if needed. Clean toilet and lots of hot water for the showers. Everyone makes you feel welcome straight away. It's the perfect stop for people who wish to visit the Eden project only 7/10 min drive away, around 20 min of Charlestown, Fowey, Megavisey all full of charms 😀 Highly recommend we would come again, no problem.
