In an elevated and sheltered location between heath-coated peaks, Bryher Campsite peers seaward

In an elevated and sheltered location between heath-coated peaks, Bryher Campsite peers seaward to Tresco. From your tent it’s a short climb upwards for spectacular, boulder-strewn views from Shipman Head (a great spot for the sunset) and a short climb down to the jetty and beaches. A real wild beauty, with spotless facilities and free showers. No dogs. 

The Owner Says

The Perfect Base for Exploring the beautiful Isles of Scilly...

Nestled between two hills on the rugged island of Bryher, moments from a white sand beach and enjoying stunning panoramic sea views, Bryher Campsite is the perfect base for exploring the beautiful Isles of Scilly.

With five camping fields, even in the height of summer there remains a wonderful sense of space. With traditional camping, you’re free to pick your own spot, whether you want to overlook Tresco Channel or the Atlantic, pitch next to your friends, or find a little corner all to yourself.

We also offer fully-equipped Bell Tent rentals so you can just turn up, chill out and enjoy your holiday. Our Bell Tents are spacious, five metre tents with plenty of living and sleeping space for up to five people. They're fully kitted out so all you need to bring is bedding and towels.

The campsite games field, with football goals and a Volleyball net, provides somewhere for the young (and young at heart!) to let off steam and meet new people.

Bryher is an island of contrasts, with beautiful, safe sandy beaches on one side and dramatic cliffs on the other. The smallest of the inhabited islands, Bryher is packed with things to do and places to eat for a relaxing but fun island escape.

There's also a brilliant local boat service, helping you get around and explore the other islands - or you could rent a kayak or small boat and go under your own steam!

Getting here is as easy as hopping on the ferry or small plane from the mainland. Most importantly, once you've checked in your luggage you won't need to worry about it again until you reach the campsite, so getting your camping gear here couldn't be easier.

Our favourite spot

Tents, glampers and well-behaved groups – yes. Dogs, motorhomes and caravans – no.

The local area

Bennett Boatyard (07979 393206) offers small motor boats, sailing dinghies, kayaks and stand-up paddle boards. Or jump on one of the regular the inter-Island ferry connections to the other islands (including larger St Mary’s and Tresco). If it rains, check out local artworks at the Golden Eagle Studio (01720 422671), near to the Hell Bay Hotel where, incidentally, spa treatments are another rainy day option. The island also has a fantastic Community Centre, with table tennis, games, puzzles, books, and pool, which can be used by visitors at any time for a small donation. There is also a small play park in the garden.

Best local places to eat and drink

The cosy Fraggle Rock (01720 422222), Scilly’s smallest pub, is just a few minutes’ walk down the hill towards the quay. The contemporary Hell Bay Hotel (01720 422947) has an outside bar deck overlooking the sea and outstanding local seafood in the restaurant and Crab Shack. Bar snacks are available at lunchtime and in the evening (reservations essential). Bryher Shop offers an excellent selection of food and drink, as well as freshly baked bread and pastries. You can also pre-order shopping to be delivered to the campsite on your arrival.
