Chyan is a beautiful, unique place to camp. The emphasis is on wild camping and our facilities are basic. We want people to be able to come here and enjoy the experience of connecting with the land, camping a quiet, rural setting under the stars, away from the trappings of the modern world. Here you will find tranquility, encounters with wildlife and an experience quite different to most other campsites in Cornwall.

Campers have access to compost toilets and fresh spring water. Campers can also use the hot showers in solar shower boat house.



Campers can have access to our sauna at extra cost and this must be booked in advaNce- please contact us for details.

Some visitor reviews:

“The peace and tranquility, the site was not too busy and the vibe was really chilled. Loved the eco-friendly way of life there and the back to basics style of living. This place wouldn’t be for everyone, it’s not for the H&S obsessed or those who like a home from home style holiday, showers that smell of bleach, games rooms and laundry rooms but for those who are relaxed, understand what they are trying to achieve here and accept it for what it is, love their kids to explore the countryside and get muddy in a mud kitchen, enjoy the experience of back to basics living, this is for you.”

“Great little camp site, great to get back to basics…The composting toilets were absolutely fine and easy to use, the solar showers weren’t very powerful but were warm, and the bath house showers were great, absolutely loved the mosaic floor!  Lovely campsite, plenty of room, no list of rules issued on arrival but not needed when campers are respectful! Would definitely like to return!”

“Wild camping, plenty of room for children to explore and play. Relaxing, camp fires allowed.”

“Really quirky eco-camp, relaxing with everything you need for a camping break.”

“Really chilled out place with an eco focus. Huge amount of space. Nice grounds to explore.
Basic but perfectly functioning facilities.”

“Loads of open space to pitch your tent, we opted for a little area near the apple trees which felt more enclosed and like our own. Loved the compost toilets and solar panelled showers – really environmentally friendly.”

“Gorgeous, quiet location beside an orchard. Loved the eco vibe with compost loos and a solar shower. Also fresh apple juice for sale.”

“Absolutely wonderful! Friendly, lovely. The showers were brisk and quirky, with open fields to moon to! The toilets are compostable, and close enough to be not a treck, but far enough that you’re not too close. There was a real community feel, perfect for families with kids immediately forming friendships to pick blackberries and hunt for rabbits…! We will be back…”

“Nice field, with lovely apple orchard down the side, that we camped next to. Instructions for camping and keeping ourselves safe during coronavirus times were clear. The toilets themselves were fantastic, with cleaner in there and plenty of notices up encouraging people to clean facilities before and after. We cycled to the Lizard from the farm and the hill from Gweek to the camp were a struggle for me and the solar showers were very welcome after the ride. Saw Kate who runs the place once and she was very friendly, asking how we were getting on. It’s a really peaceful campsite and we’d definitely use it again.”

“Very environmentally friendly. Pretty site with lots of apple trees. Curious little hideaways and niches. Almost silent, so peaceful and it feels like you leave hardly a footprint after you have left.”
