Pitch a tent on the western tip of the island of St Agnes and you are resting your head on

Pitch a tent on the western tip of the island of St Agnes and you are resting your head on the last inhabited piece of land before 3,000 miles of uninterrupted Atlantic. The upside of this is that you can’t beat the scenery: a white-sand beach and boulder-strewn spits petering out into the ocean. There aren’t many downsides, except the fact that your tent will feel the full force of an Atlantic storm. If this scares the hell out of you, then there are three self-catering units to choose from, sleeping two to five people, and even if your tent does blow down you can always console yourself with a delicious Troytown Farm ice cream made from the herd of Jersey cows onsite. Dogs allowed. Return transport from the quay available (£3).

The Owner Says

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.
