About Gwel-an-Nans

Gwel-an-Nans is a family-run campsite set in the heart of the Cornish countryside. Located near Bodmin, Cornwall, our farm is nestled amongst the edges of Bodmin Moor. Open all year round, all our pitches have an electric hook-up option and we are dog-friendly – we don’t charge any extra for your fur babies!
