If you love spectacular coastal walks, secluded beaches and exhilarating windsurfing, head for this Victorian country house with panoramic sea views - perfect for a cheap family holiday or weekend break. If you're looking for activity breaks, there are plenty of opportunities for walking holidays, cycling and adventure-seekers in this uncrowded part of Cornwall.

We're near to lots of great attractions like the Cornwall Seal Sanctuary, Flambard's theme park and Roskilly's ice cream farm! And you don't have to go far from Truro, Redruth, Falmouth or Lizard to find us either.

The Hostel

There is space for 33 people across a selection of dorm rooms, private rooms, en-suite rooms and camping at YHA Coverack. This Victorian country house has beautiful sea views, great self-catering facilities and cosy social areas. You have 24 hour access to the hostel once you’ve checked in.

Bell Tents

Get all the fun of camping but without any of the set up stresses with these beautiful bell tents - part of the YHA Glamping experience. These spacious tepee-like tents are fully kitted out with a double bed and three single futons as well as bedding and can sleep four or five people. They also have eco-friendly solar lighting and comfy bean bags for you to chill out on during the day plus bedside tables, a coffee table, rugs and soft flooring.

There are two tents available at YHA Coverack and bell tent guests will have full use of the hostel's facilities plus a separate shower and toilet block. YHA Coverack's bell tents are available to book throughout the year for stays between 1st July and 18th September.


Please note that camping is sold per person and not per pitch and so, during the booking process, you will need to select the number of people that you wish to camp.

Please note: Due to the size of our orchard site, we can only accept small tents. The site is not suitable for tents that are larger than four man dome tents.

Come and camp in this beautiful 100 year old orchard. Stay for a few days and enjoy walks along the famous South West Coast Path, discovering secluded coves and spectacular beaches on your way.

There is room for up to 25 people in small tents (maximum size - four man dome tent).

This site is suitable for use by both families and organised groups.
