Living near Helston, I am often asked about camping in the area. There are a number of working farms offering camping in Helston (or nearby) but my favourite is Skyburriowe. This is a farm with both Camping and caravanning pitches and is very near to Helston. It can facilitate camping and caravanning and while our caravan and camping site is open to everyone there is a separate field for The Caravan Club members. New hard surface roads have just been laid giving easy access even in wet weather.
The bustling market town of Helston (home of the Floral Dance) is just two miles away from the historic port of Porthleven. Helston has a mix of Georgian and Victorian architecture and was once home to Bob Fitzsimmons, the famous boxer. Helston fits well into Cornwall’s Celtic myths, legends, culture and heritage as can be seen when viewing our Cornish screen saver.
There is DVD entitled Porthleven to Penrose that gives an insight into the Helton area. Helston is linked with Lizard Peninsula where a number of working farms offering camping sites can be discovered. Staying in Helston campsites you are not far from the roads linking to Penzance, Falmouth and Truro.

I know Skyburriowe has early and late season Breaks for those wishing to camp near Helston, and of course there is always less traffic at that time of the year. Even in the spring and autumn there is plenty to see and do. If you don’t fancy camping near Helston you could always try B&B in a farmhouse.
