Our Site

Bos Verbas is a small, quiet, adult-only campsite with large flat grass pitches and amenities including electric hook-ups and a camper’s kitchen. As with the campsite, our two handcrafted shepherd huts, with private luxury bathrooms, boast stunning panoramic views over the Atlantic. Our well appointed, one bedroom, self-catering holiday cottage is also available for those who prefer all the comforts of home.

Bos Verbas’ stunning location comprises 21/2 acres of flat grass land in an elevated, south facing position on the south coast above Praa Sands, a mile long sandy surfing beach.

Between the coastal views, and surrounding countryside, in an area of outstanding natural beauty, you will be spoilt for choice as you take the time to relax and appreciate the sunsets and bird song.

Praa Sands Beach


Conveniently located 200m off the main Penzance to Helston Road (A394), far enough away not to be disturbed by traffic noise, easy access is provided to the whole of west of Cornwall.

The site is a twenty minute walk to Praa Sands, where you can access the coastal path, and is only a short drive to nearby beaches including Marazion and Perranuthnoe.

Numerous tourist destinations are within easy reach, including St Michael's Mount, the harbour town of Porthleven with its many pubs and restaurants, artistic St Ives, Lands End, The Minack Theatre, and a nine-hole golf course at Praa Sands immediately opposite.

West Cornwall also has a rich mining history with visitor attractions including the Geevor tin mine and the Telegraph museum at Porthcurno.

The Coach and Horses Pub, and The BoatHouse with eat-in or take-away are within easy walking distance. The Spar shop and Texaco garage are a few minutes walk for basic groceries - and a large range of shops, supermarkets and laundry facilities are available at nearby Long Rock (6 miles), Penzance (7 miles) and Helston (6 miles).

Our Shepherd Hut


For all you plant lovers, you will be spoilt for choice with nine exotic Cornish gardens within a fifteen mile radius. The Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan and many others are further afield for an easy day trip. There are also several good plant retail outlets close by including Trevenna Cross Nurseries, Surreal succulents and The Hardy Exotic nursery. Our camper’s cabin has a range of home grown succulents and eggs for sale and there is a book swap for guests.
