It’s a 15-minute downhill walk to the historic fishing village of Polperro where Polperro Heritage Museum (01503 272423) commemorates smuggling and fishing. There’s also a Model Village and Railway (01503 272378), shops and places to eat and drink. Looe is a 10-minute drive (4 miles) or a scenic boat trip away (hop aboard in Polperro harbour). It’s a busy fishing port with lots of shops, eateries, the small Old Guildhall Museum & Gaol (01503 263709) and a family-friendly, sand beach. From East Looe, you can take a boat trip to Looe Island Nature Reserve (01872 273939).

Perfect escape

We really appreciated the stunning setting, wild flowers and sea views. The campsite is very spacious and eco-friendly, with great kitchen facilities and a real back-to-nature feel. We stayed in the bell tent and loved the fact it had its own enclosure with hammock, fire pit and chairs, and swings alongside for the kids. A picnic table would have been nice, and one of the mattresses had seen better days, but otherwise there was everything we needed and the campsite owner was extremely friendly and helpful. The location is perfect for escaping the crowds in Polperro and Looe, but close enough to walk into the village for fish and chips, and for access to the beaches and coastal path. We'd particularly recommend the natural swimming pool up the cliff path in Polperro.

Romantic stay/ Happy family holiday

The operator Matt is a nice and friendly guy given us loads of useful information. The campsite is far away from city lights so during night you could see beautiful moon and stars. We saw an orange moon which is amazing. The yurt is lovely. Very tidy and suitable for a family of 3. Our kid loved it so much. In the night it‘s bit cold but Matt has prepared fireplace so it’s interesting and romantic.

Peaceful and wild

A great place, particularly for young children to be ‘wild’. They could run off across the footgolf site without us worrying. Facilities are rustic but reasonable and had everything you needed. Yurt was very nice and comfortable but the Bell tent was disappointing hence only 4 stars. ‘Beds’ were mattresses on the floor and it was pretty damp. The description needs updating as there were several more accommodations on site than advertised on Cool Camping. Overall we had a lovely stay once we had got used to the wildness! Recommend the three Pilchards in Polperro- delicious 😋

Amazing experience!

Stayed here for a few days with a couple of friends, her little girl and pup. We all had the best time exploring, it was so peaceful and beautiful. The sun was shining when we arrived and the weather was perfect for a bbq and campfire, we had a rainy day too and chilled in the yurt and the hut which was lovely and cosy. And played some football golf :D Honestly had the best time! And Matt couldn’t have been more helpful and accommodating. I can’t wait to come back! :)

Lush escape

Amazing, secluded campsite with good facilities on site. No power in the yurts but great escape from the digital world. Power and hot showers in the double shared kitchen, to be shared with only 5 other pitches. Great views with the sea in the distance and only 20 min walk to Polperro, a lovely little fishing town. If you do want to eat in the town you should definitely book in advance as most places are fully booked. We ate at the Nelson which has very long waiting list but amazing french cuisine, the lobster was to die for. On out way home stopped off in Looe which is much bigger lots more to do, bigger beach and lots more places to eat. Lastly the Lost Gardens of Heligan are about 50min drive away and was fantastic!

Getting There

From Looe, switch off the sat nav. You can go to Polperro mini roundabout, then take the second exit (a right-ish turn). After 30 metres, turn right up Kellow Hill. The site is on your left after just over ½ mile. You can enter via the Polperro football golf entrance if you wish.

You can get to Looe (4 miles from site) or Liskeard (10 miles away) by train. Taxis are usually available from both at about £10 from Looe or £20 from Liskeard. Buses and boats also run from Looe to Polperro from where it’s a 15–25-minute walk to the campsite (depending on your fitness and the amount of luggage!).
