There are so many places to choose from…you can either formally camp with electric hook up, showers, site shop and so on, or go wild and park for free on the cliffs, in pub car parks, or just pull in safely off the road.
Archie Van is 7m long, so will be fine on most organised sites. All the instructions you need are in the handbook; here we want to give you some highlights of the immediate area around St Just. It’s always worth doing a bit of research about where you want to go, we use www.searchforsites.co.uk which is a brilliant resource and lists certified sites, pub stopovers, off site (wild) camping sites and lots of other gems.
This is our home from home site, always brilliant, and a short walk down to our favourite beach in the world – Gwenver. Gets very busy in peak season, always worth a call ahead.
There is a campsite at Treen but there is no booking, so you just have to turn up and hope. It’s a really amazing spot, and the car park allows overnights in camper vans if no space at Treen campsite. Open Mar – Oct and max length is 7m so Archie will just fit!
A really delightful spot just out of St Just. At the end of the road is the sea – Porth Nanven (known locally as Penanven) is at the end of the lush Cot Valley. The beach is a rocky, secluded cove where you can spot seals, maybe dolphins and take a quick (or long) dip.
Overlooking Cape Cornwall you can just park up at the end of the road and gaze at the most amazing view of the West Penwith coast. Just ask us and we’ll give you directions.
