How to put the romance into camping

Oh boy, camping is seriously seductive; the great outdoors, twinkling stars and a cosy snuggle under canvas. Romance and camping are a match made in heaven. And the best news? It’s super simple and affordable.

Invite cupid along on your next camping trip and get the romance flowing with just a few thoughtful touches…

Find the perfect spot

Romance happens in the most unexpected of places but give it a helping hand by pitching your tent somewhere a little special. Coastal views, rolling countryside and lush woodland will all do the trick and if it’s secluded, even better!

Our spacious pitches are nestled amongst mature shrubs and gorgeous woodland, so you’ll never feel crowded and over at our sister site, Pentewan Sands Holiday Park, pitches are available right on the beach – now that’s romantic.

Double up

Move over single sleeping bags, romance calls for double measures. Invest in a twin sleeping bag and get ready for cosy camping cuddles.

Let there be light

Set the scene by hanging some LED fairy lights around the tent entrance or from a nearby tree, it looks really magical against the night sky and is an instant romance starter. Try to make it a surprise for your other half to see them go weak at the knees.

Have a posh picnic

It might not win you a Michelin-star but add a few luxuries to your camping cool box and your meal will be just as romantic. Pop some Cornish seafood on the BBQ, pour a glass of bubbly (remember to pack plastic wine glasses) and let the taste sensation happen.

We’ve got a small but well-stocked onsite shop for any forgotten or last-minute extras and we’re right next to the fantastic Lobb’s Farm Shop which is brimming with the best of Cornish food and drink. Candle lit restaurants, you’ve got nothing on us!

Go astronomical

Give your relationship a cosmic boost by snuggling up under a blanket of stars. This is what camping does best and with limited light pollution in our neck of the woods, we’re the ultimate spot for stargazing. Simple, romantic, memorable – tick, tick, tick.

Make a day of it

For a truly romantic experience think beyond the campsite. Spend the day exploring secluded spots, walking hand in hand and taking in the breath-taking scenery. Step outside our campsite and you’ll find all this and more with the South West Coast Path on our doorstep. Even in the summer months it feels blissfully remote and is perfect for romantic souls looking for some ‘me’ time.
