Enjoy a sunset view over the sea from one of our collection of 3 beautifully furnished 5m bell tents, just a 10 minute stroll down to the beach at Bigbury on Sea. They boast some of the the best sea views in the whole of the UK looking out to Burgh Island, Bantham and Hope Cove.

The space
The Pilchard is the perfect getaway for families (max 2 adults) searching for a seaside getaway. You’ll settle instantly and be relaxing under canvas or outside by the fire pit with a glass in your hand, enjoying the sun sinking into the sea. Bigbury is a unique coastal location: great for swimming, surfing, snorkelling, coastal walks and sipping coffee at the Venus Cafe. We’re also very lucky to have the amazing Beach Barista on site providing daily coffee and delicious pastries.

Walk from the door and you can immediately join the South West Coastal footpath, allowing you to discover some of the hidden local coves along the coast.

The tent comes fully equipped for a comfortable stay with a double bed and two single beds on pallets, all with bed linen and blankets. We have carefully selected items of furniture and abundant house plants for a home from home experience. Inside is also kitchen equipment for cooking and eating your own meals, a trunk for clothes and a selection of teas and coffees.

Where you’ll be

Bigbury-on-Sea, England, United Kingdom

Bigbury is truly an amazing spot, boasting the most incredible views and friendly locals. Why not book in at Discovery Surf School for a lesson, walk to the infamous Burgh Island made famous by Agatha Christie or catch the passenger ferry over to Bantham for a pub lunch at The Sloop Inn. There really is an abundance of family activities.

You will not be short of beautiful walks, as the campsite is situated right next to the South West Coastal Path and many other picturesque villages are only a short drive away. Make sure to try the local coffee and pastries from the on site “Beach Barista” trailer too!
