Bedruthan Steps Camping

Overlooking the world famous Bedruthan Steps

Situated on the B3276 coast road, 6 miles south of Padstow and 6 miles north of Newquay. The signs for the Bedruthan Steps Campsite are easily seen from the road. We are a basic camp site and there is no electric hook up.

The scenic coastal path runs just below the site, literally two minutes! We are on a bus route, no. 56, and copies of the time table are available from us.

Please be aware that due to the Coronavirus situation the lifeguard cover on beaches is limited.

Cliff Steps to Bedruthan Steps Beach Closed

Unfortunately during the winter storms the cliff steps leading down to Bedruthan Steps Beach, which are maintained by the National Trust, had a major rock fall and have been deemed too dangerous to be used. The National Trust have stated these cliff steps to the beach will be closed until further notice.
