Semi-wild tent camping pitches, walking distance from the Eden Project

The Owner Says

These semi-wild grass pitches are the perfect place to pitch your tent for a visit to the Eden Project. The pitches are in the grounds of the YHA hostel which is directly adjacent to the Eden Project. No cars, campervans or motorhomes are permitted onto the camping meadow, giving a peaceful, semi-wild feel to the area. An ameneties block exclusively for campers offers hot showers and toilets; further facilities are available at the hostel where there is a communal area to relax, a licensed bar serving snacks and drinks, wifi, a drying room and cycle storage. Eden Project tickets are also available from the hostel at discounted prices. 

About YHA Eden Project

Suitable For

Tents – yes. Campervans, caravans, trailer tents, dogs – no.


The Eden Project (01726 811911) is on the doorstep of course! The 2 indoor biomes – Rainforest and Mediterranean – are fascinating and there’s plenty going on in the ‘outdoor biome’ too, with 13 hectares of garden containing almost 2000 plant species. Elsewhere, you can enjoy a beer tour at the award-winning St Austell Brewery (0845 2411122), 4 miles away, or, just down the road, visit the Mid Cornwall Galleries (01726 812131) where they exhibit and sell some of the finest contemporary arts and crafts in the West Country. For most, though, its the multiple beaches along the coast and the gorgeous Fowey Estuary that are the main draw – just 15 minutes by car.

Food & Drink

You can grab a hearty breakfast in the hostel for £5.25 (served from 8–11am) – it includes two freshly baked pastries, one piece of fruit, one fruit juice and one hot drink. You need to order in advance, though. There's also a light snack menu, a small range of microwave meals to cook on-site and a licensed bar with a selection of hot and cold drinks is available. Other food and drink is available from within the Eden grounds during standard opening hours.


YHA Eden Project is located at The Eden Project, Bodelva, St. Austell, Cornwall, PL24 2SG

Getting There

The Eden Project is situated just outside St Austell and is well signposted from the A30 from Exeter and the A391/390 from Plymouth. Follow the M5 southbound to Exeter before taking the A30 and continuing until you reach the Innis Downs junction (A391), from where the Eden Project is signposted. Once here, those staying overnight should report initially to the 'Service Gate' entrance.

The nearest coach stop is St Blazey Gate, 1 mile away. The 101 bus runs from St Austell Train Station (0845 748 4950) to the Eden Project during the day – if you are arriving in the evening you can book a taxi to YHA Eden Project. The 101 bus stop is a 15 minute walk away from the site.
