The Owner Says
Located at the very edge of England, on the remote island of St Agnes, Troytown Campsite is right by the beach and enjoys incredible panoramic views across the Atlantic, Bishop Rock Lighthouse, the rugged western rocks and the uninhabited island of Annet.
Wake up to the sound of the sea, spend your day relaxing on the white sand of the campsites own beach, then after dining alfresco, watch the sunset from your tent and count shooting stars in the crystal clear night sky. At peak times the campsite is the perfect family site, visited by the same families year after year, for the fabulous views, sandy beach and the safe, traffic-free, natural environment. Outside of the school summer holidays, the campsite is the perfect retreat, with peace and quiet and beautiful scenery in abundance.
For a totally carefree holiday, the campsite has a few canvas bell tents for hire. The tents are provided pre-erected and fully equipped for up to 4 people.
They are have a fantastic location with spectacular panoramic views out from the most south-westerly point in Britain. Treat your senses to some amazing sunsets and brilliant night skies, all set to the soundtrack of the sea.
