Abut Bryher Campsite

Nestled in a sheltered valley on the rugged island of Bryher, with stunning panoramic sea views, Bryher Campsite is the perfect base for exploring the beautiful Isles of Scilly.

With five camping fields even in the height of summer there remains a wonderful sense of space – and you’re free to pick your own pitch, whether you want to overlook Tresco Channel or the Atlantic, pitch next to your friends, or find a little corner all to yourself. 

Our games field with football goals and a Volleyball net (new for 2017) provides somewhere for the young (and young at heart!) to let off steam and meet new people.

Bryher Campsite is run by Jo (who is Bryher born and bred!) and her partner Tom. They're helped around the site by Tom's parents and Jo's sister so we're a true "family business"!

Our Season

In 2017 Bryher Campsite will be open from 1st April - 7th October 2017.

Booking is essential in July and August, and also the Whitsun Half Term week, although we always advise booking in advance to avoid disappointment.

Sorry - we do not allow dogs (or other animals!) on the campsite.

We welcome groups including schools, Scouts, companies and activity groups, but please call us on 01720 422068 or email us for details and to discuss your needs.

There's nothing like the smell of a barbecue to complete your camping holiday, and we are more than happy for you to use barbecues on the site. We do ask that you are careful to avoid damage to the grass, and that you properly extinguish the barbecue after you have finished. Please never use a barbecue inside your tent.

We do not allow open fires as these cause damage to the ground, although you are welcome to use a fire bowl, but again please be sure to minimise damage to the grass.

If you would like to enjoy an open fire, you are welcome to do so on any of the beaches on Bryher, but please make sure you clean up after yourself to keep this island looking beautiful.

Not as such - we do not allocate pitches, so you are welcome to go wherever you would like on the site. We charge a flat rate per person per night, and do not charge dependent on the size of your tent.

Having said that, please do consider others on the campsite and also consider the luggage limits on Skybus and Scillonian - and make sure you can lift your own bags! No bag can weigh over 20kg.

No, sorry. Due to the location of the site and the nature of the tracks on Bryher, we do not allow trailers.

We don't provide WiFi on site, by popular demand from our campers (we think you'll find a better connection without it!)

If you need to log on you can find free WiFi at Fraggle Rock bar, Bryher Shop and the Hell Bay Hotel. The islands have 4G phone signal on most major networks (Vodafone, EE, O2) and although phone signal on the campsite is patchy, you can get a good signal within a few moments' walk.

There is a facility on the campsite for charging mobile phones, tablets, cameras and other small electronic devices, but these are left entirely at your own risk. This facility is free, although a donation in the Cornwall Air Ambulance box would be much appreciated.

We welcome people with disabilities and will always do all we can to make life easier for you. However, due to the location of Bryher and the nature of the campsite it may be unsuitable for guests with some physical disabilities. Please telephone us (01720 422068) or email us and we will be more than happy to discuss your needs.

Good Causes

What makes Scilly special to us – and our guests – is the feeling of remoteness and the natural beauty of this truly extraordinary place. With the ability to enjoy this comes a responsibility to help protect it. That’s why, as a business, we choose to support two local good causes.

The Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust protect, conserve and enhance the islands’ wild open spaces for the benefit of animals, visitors and locals alike. Without them, the islands would look very different and would not be as accessible to our guests.

The Cornwall Air Ambulance is on standby 365 days a year to transport sick and seriously injured patients from the islands to emergency medical treatment on the mainland. Everyone on the islands knows someone who has needed their help.

We have decided that for every booking on Bryher Campsite, we – as a business – will donate £1 to be split equally between the Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust and the Cornwall Air Ambulance. This amount is not added to your bill; we make this donation on your behalf.

In 2016 we donated £164.50 to each charity on behalf of our campers and us as a business.

We also have a collection jar for the two charities in the Charging Room on the campsite and ask that anyone making use of the facilities makes a donation to these good causes. In 2016 the Cornwall Air Ambulance collection jar raised £128.03.
