The Engine House at Compton Park

The Engine House at Compton Park, with our camp site and restaurant, nestles on the warm south western slopes of Kit Hill above the town of Callington in east Cornwall. Kit Hill, once owned by Prince Charles, was given to the people to celebrate the birth of Prince William in 1985. It is a 1000-foot isolated hill towering above the beautiful Cornish and Devon countryside, giving views of the north and south coast of Cornwall and Devon from its summit. The peak and surrounding slopes form Kit Hill Country Park, 400 acres of open countryside steeped in mining heritage.

This peaceful, six-acre caravan touring and camping site enjoys panoramic views of both Cornwall and Devon. The views stretch from Plymouth and the Mew Stone in the east, the Eddystone lighthouse some twelve miles out to sea, along the Cornish coast to the high ground above Looe, all the way down to the white peaks of the Cornish clay tips and the Eden Project to the west, and then back along the eastern slopes of Bodmin Moor and all the way up to Davidstowe Moor and the North Cornish Coast.

Compton Park, formerly the site of an old Cornish tin mine, offers a quiet, simple and unspoilt location for your camping holiday. The old Cornish Steam Engine house has been tastefully converted to provide showers, toilets and washing facilities. In addition, the Steam Engine House contains the Engine House Restaurant and Tea Room, where hot home cooked meals are served seven days a week.
