Coronavirus Update: We are very sorry to announce that we have taken the difficult decision to keep our campsite closed for the entirety of 2020. As a small, family-run campsite, the measures we feel would be appropriate to protect our customers and our staff make opening economically unviable. We have issued 100% refunds to all of our valued customers and very much hope to welcome you back next year when the world is hopefully far more normal.

Please note: Because we have two young children who are unable to go to nursery due to COVID19 we're finding it difficult to answer the phones on a regular basis so please email us on contact@trelispen.co.uk and we'll respond as soon as we can.

Located on the beautiful south Cornish coast, we are a small, rural campsite with 40 flat, sheltered pitches for both camping and caravans. We have space for 10 electric hook ups so it is always wise to book one of them if you need power.

We’re pleased to say that we don’t have a clubhouse - our sites suits people who want camping a bit closer to wildlife with a good chance of seeing the milky way!

There are several pubs and shops within walking distance of the campsite and we’re a good base for anyone looking to explore the many attractions, country villages and beaches that south Cornwall has to offer. As well as being handy for the famous Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project, we are also a good bet for random walkers and cyclists looking for a bit more flexibility as we keep 5 tent pitches unreserved for anyone camping on a whim - even in the height of summer.

We have been in business for 50 years and are now owned by the third generation of the same family.


Our toilets and shower block has been refurbished for 2019 season - with great hot water, washing and drying facilities and a fridge freezer, it's basic but practical.


We have 40 pitches and can take up to 10 caravans. We also have 10 electrical hook ups so it's best to book these to avoid disappointment. We keep a small area of approximately 5 pitches unreserved for people who like to plan less on their holiday!

Great Location

Near to lots of great places and attractions, with several pubs and beaches in walking distance. Also a great base for day trips on the Roseland Peninsula, Mid Cornwall and Fowey.


We're adding fruit trees and bee and bird friendly plants to our hedgerows to support local species. Recycling services are also provided.


The site is quiet, sheltered and flat – there are loads of bird and wildlife (perhaps the odd escapee sheep). Plenty of opportunities to gaze up at the stars.

Opening times

We're open April to October but take bookings all year round! Get in touch today to book your next holiday.
