Located at the very edge of England, on the remote island of St Agnes, Troytown Campsite is right by the beach and enjoys incredible panoramic views across the Atlantic, Bishop Rock Lighthouse, the rugged western rocks and the uninhabited island of Annet.

Wake up to the sound of the sea, spend your day relaxing on the white sand of the campsites own beach, then after dining alfresco, watch the sunset from your tent and count shooting stars in the crystal clear night sky.

At peak times the campsite is the perfect family site, visited by the same families year after year, for the fabulous views, sandy beach and the safe, traffic-free, natural environment. Outside of the school summer holidays, the campsite is the perfect retreat, with peace and quiet and beautiful scenery in abundance.

During the sumer months it is essential to book in advance, please check first for availability. Outside of peak times, you are welcome to arrive at short notice. If you are new to camping or the islands, please see our FAQs and travel pages for advice on making the most of your holiday.

We welcome school groups, scout groups and activity groups such as swimmers, kayakers or diving clubs.

Dogs are permitted on the campsite, but during the school summer holidays we have a strict limit of one dog per party. We also have a limit on the number of dogs on the site at any one time, so it is essential to arrange this with us prior to your arrival. We ask that dogs are kept on a lead on the site and around the farm and they cause no nuisance by barking or fouling.
