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 our turf roof earthship bathhouse.


Campers have the opportunity to volunteer on our Community Field during their stay – please ask us for details.

Campers can have access to our sauna or use of the Apple Barn at extra cost – please contact us for details.

Open fires are allowed on our campsite but they must be in a metal firepit or brazier.

We have beautiful natural play areas for children. On the Community Field we have a large willow playground – an area of arches, tunnels, domes and dens created by living willow. There is also a mud kitchen and a fire circle.

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.”
