  • Cool Budget Option
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).

Details

Facilities

A traditional-style granite building houses good facilities, including toilets, showers (tokens required), coin-operated washing machines and dryers, shaver points and babychanging facilities. There’s an on-site shop. Pre-erected bell tents include: mattresses (double and/or singles as required), picnic bench and chairs, lanterns and solar lighting, cool box with ice pack service, cooking pots, frying pan, kettle, water carrier, crockery, cutlery, utensils, camping stove with two burners and grill. When you arrive on St Agnes, you will be met at the quay on St Agnes to transport luggage to the site (and back when you leave). Bedding and towels are not included. Bring sleeping bags, pillows, and a torch (there is no street lighting on the island). Buckets, spades, & crabbing lines are provided to keep the kids (or young at heart) busy.
