Following recent advice from the Government on the response to the Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak, and avoiding non-essential travel specifically to holiday parks, we have decided NOT TO OPEN AT EASTER.

Camborne is located in what was formerly one of the richest tin mining areas in the world. Positioned off the A30 dual carriageway, Camborne is an urban town, with access to local attractions such as Cornwall Goldsmiths, and access to a well established town.

Christmas Eve 1801, saw the invention of ‘The Puffing Devil’. Local celebrity of the age, engineer Richard Trevithick, had successfully designed and built, the World’s first steam-powered road locomotive, a self-propelled passenger carrying vehicle.

Throughout Trevithick’s age, the inventor put Camborne on the map, and trading through the mining industry grew dramatically. Richard still kept up with technology during the age, keeping his creative mind going until his death in 1833, in Dartford, aged 66 years.

In 1815, Penzance born Sir Humphry Davy, got in on the action, inventing the Miner’s Lamp. Designed and later used in the mining industry alongside Trevithicks steam creations.
