Cerenety is peaceful, old fashioned, back to nature camping, where you can spend lazy days in the grass or playing cricket with the kids. Spend the morning surfing, delight in a relaxing afternoon picnics & summer evenings watching camp fire smoke spiralling idly into the Cornish sky.
All whilst happy in the knowledge that your holiday is having a limited effect on the environment. Animals, secret beaches and pick your own vegetables too!
Why Choose Us?
We have a tidy breakfast cafe selling crepes, teas and coffees. This is often run by genuine French people ;-) Open at weekends out of season and 6 days a week in season.
We have a ‘pick your own’ vegetable patch and permacutlure forest garden. Her you can peruse our herbs, fruit and veg and pick some food for dinner for just a donation to our amazing volunteers. We’ve also put up some information should you want to try your hand at your own forest garden.
Campfires! They make camping great. You can take your recently picked veg and cook up a storm on your campfire. We also have a couple of dutch ovens and tripods to hire if you would like to use them.
Animal feeding time. Weekends out of season and 6 days a week in season we do animal feeding time for the children (or adults). It changes depending on the time of year, but we usually feed the alpacas, milk the goat, collect the eggs, stroke the tortoise and pet the rabbit at least! If you let us know in advance we’re happy to do this for your group at any time. In spring we’re often bottle feeding orphan lambs too!
We have a pizza oven! It’s fairly ramshackle as it’s made from pond clay and old red bricks that fell out of our old house, BUT it works. We sometimes spontaneously set up pizza nights where we light the oven and anyone can join in with their pizzas, but failing that anyone is welcome to use it. If you’re not sure, just ask and we can give you some pointers.
There’s also lots of other things, like giant chess tables, our artistic Cerenetree, archways made from driftwood, living willow chairs and random upcycled things… Just come and explore!
Solar powered showers, compost toilets and wood burning fires allow you to indulge in an off-grid holiday in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Make friends with our rescue animals, meander down the canal into town or take a 5 minute wander down our country lanes to our local secret beach.
