Isles of Scilly
In a stunning location, on the waters edge of the remote island of St Agnes, Troytown Campsite enjoys incredible panoramic views across the Atlantic, taking in the 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 by the clear water and white sands of the campsites own beach, then after dining alfresco, watch the sunset from your tent and count shooting stars in the 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.

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.
