Although this campsite is relatively small, there is an area for dog walking on-site, as well as space for families to enjoy ball games and other activities.

The park is surrounded by beautiful landscape, and the rolling hills of south Cornwall offer a gorgeous view from Balnoon Camping Site. These are also the first port of call for many guests looking to head out and explore the surrounding area. The hills as well as the countryside and woodland in other directions are rich with trails suitable for walking and cycling, while horse riding is also offered from various nearby locations, ideal for guests looking to get around and see the area from a fresh perspective.

St Ives is the nearest town to this site and is less than a 10-minute drive away. There are lots of things to do in St Ives. If you want a day beside the seaside, head to Porthmeor Beach, Porthminster Beach or Porthgwidden Beach. If you fancy some culture, why not visit Tate St Ives or the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden. There are also lots of lovely places to have a bite to eat and something to drink, some places in this town perhaps unsurprisingly specialising in seafood, although there are other pubs, restaurants and cafes about, too. Or maybe you want to tempt your sweet tooth at the Moomaid of Zennor Ice Cream Parlour. For further inspiration, head to the St Ives Visitor Centre on Street-An-Pol.

Those happy to drive a little further can visit Truro, about a 35-minute drive away. You'll want to see the cathedral and maybe the Royal Cornwall Museum. Or go to the the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan, both popular and amazing attractions where it is well worth spending a full day – both are about an hour's drive from Balnoon Camping Site. St Austell, near the Eden Project, is also a super place for a day out. Tour the St Austell Brewery, enjoy time at Carlyon Bay or go to Wingz Bird Sanctuary.
