CAMPSITE UPDATE – 30th March 2021

Great News!

We have now been told we can open ALL our washing facilities including the toilet and shower block with social distancing in place, from the 12th April.

We are currently looking at the details and will post further information when we know more.

Sorry for all of you who cancelled or transferred your bookings, we received a letter yesterday afternoon from Cornwall Council.

CAMPSITE UPDATE – 11th March 2021

We have now received clarification from Cornwall Council and unfortunately our shared facilities (toilets, showers, washing up facilities) are not allowed to open before 17th May at the earliest.

We can therefore open on the 12th April for those who are self-sufficient with their own toilet, shower and washing facilities. This can include tents and trailer tents.

The water and chemical waste points will be open for those who are self-sufficient, and we are waiting for clarification as to whether we can open the laundry with a booking system and will let you know ASAP.

For those who are not self-sufficient and were due to stay before the 17th May we will offer a full refund or transfer of booking to either this year or 2022.

However due to high demand we are now full for May half term, most of July and all of August, until approximately the 29th August. There is limited availability left for June and September is also booking up very quickly. We have full availability from the 12th April until the 29th May.

We have not yet opened our bookings for 2022 and when we do, priority will be given to those who have been cancelled due to covid restrictions in 2021. Your patience and understanding are much appreciated in this matter.

For those of you who have booked before the 17th May and are not self-contained, please contact us by email if you would like a full refund or to transfer your booking.

If you are self-contained and wish to stay, you do not need to contact us.

The shop will be open this season and we will make further announcements at a later stage on social distancing measures that will be in place.

We wish you all well and look forward to opening on the 12th April.

Take Care

CAMPSITE UPDATE – 3rd March 2021

Following the Government’s recent announcement, we are planning to reopen from Monday 12th April 2021.
We are however waiting for further clarification on the use of communal areas and shared facilities (including toilet blocks and showers) and will advise on this as soon as possible.
We will do our best to keep you as up to date as possible, but as this is a complex and ever-changing situation, please always check the relevant Government websites for the very latest information on Coronavirus (COVID-19): guidance and support – GOV.UK (
When we reopen, we encourage all guests to use the voluntary NHS Test & Trace App to register their attendance at our site.
On the 12th April each booking must only comprise of guests from one household and we will not be able to allow visitors on-site to meet with other guests to help keep campers and staff safe at this time.
From Monday 17th May at the earliest, the UK will hopefully be ready to move to the next step, and we will give further guidance on new policy’s and restrictions once they are confirmed.
If you have an urgent query, please email and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
We look forward to seeing everyone this year.
Take care
Gwithian Farm Campsite Team


Sorry we are fully booked from approximately the 25th July until 26th August 2021. 


2021 update – 27th January 2021

A brief update –

It is our intention to start our season on the 26th March with all the campsite facilities open, and we are looking forward to welcoming back all campers.

However, these are difficult times and we will follow all government guidelines as they evolve.

If Covid restrictions are in place, we will offer to transfer your booking or offer a full refund.

We will keep in touch via Facebook and Instagram and update our website if there are any changes.

Take care everyone, hope you are all ok.
