Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a Sea View?

Anchor Barrow does not have a sea view. Instead it overlooks the stunning Cornish landscape.

Are there any Hard Standing Pitches?

All of the pitches at Anchor Barrow are grass. However, due to our location the ground dries very quickly.

Are all the pitches level?

As Anchor Barrow is set on a hill (perfect for maximising your view) this does however reflect how level our pitches are. Some areas of the field are flatter than others.

Is the site sheltered from the elements?

As Anchor Barrow is set up on a hill it is exposed to the elements. As the non-electric pitches are free-camping you can of course choose to pitch up in area you consider to be sheltered.

Do you allow campfires?

At Anchor Barrrow you are more than welcome to use camping fires/ stoves/ fire pits. We have fire pits available to hire on site you are also welcome to bring your own. Our on site shop sells all of your BBQ & fire burning essentials.

Do you allow groups to camp at Anchor Barrow?

We want everyone to enjoy their stay at Anchor Barrow! We ourselves love nothing more than sitting round a campfire in the evenings when camping. The space that Anchor Barrow has to offer allows our campers to appropriately enjoy themselves but not at the expense of others. We have a low tolerance of any campers who are not respectful of their camping neighbours. This behaviour may result in campers being asked to leave. It is for this reason we ask for group bookings to be authorised to ensure we are the right campsite for your holiday.

Anchor Barrow welcomes groups. The telephone authorisation just ensures we are the right campsite for you and you are the right campers for us.

We politely ask you to take the time to ensure you book adequate pitches for the number of persons and/or units that you require. If insufficient pitches have been booked and the campsite is full, we may be unable to accommodate the additional units.

All group bookings must be authorised by telephone prior to making your booking. Only authorised group bookings will be permitted.

Can we camp with you if we are under 18?

The individual making the booking must be over 18. They must also be attending the Campsite.
