Due to the current Covid19 restrictions, Nine Ashes is currently closed to all groups.

Staff are no longer working and have been placed on the UK government furlough scheme.

Therefore there are no staff available to answer any calls or general correspondance until restrictions have been lifted.

Any emails concerning existing bookings to discuss cancellations or postponements
will be answered but there may be a delay in replies.


Nine Ashes is Cornwall County Scouts Training, Activity Centre and Camping site.

Situated approximately 3 miles from Bodmin on the B3266 Camelford Road.


The site consists of 25 acres of woodland, and 5 acres of camping

(with an additional 7 acres added during the peak season, by use of adjoining farmers fields).


The site is part of the private Pencarrow Estate, and is well secluded from the road, and whilst in easy reach of Bodmin & Wadebridge, is very much in an isolated position.


Overall, Nine Ashes has so much to offer,


with camping space for up to five Groups on the 'Pencarrow' Field (main site),

use of the 'Trescowe' (additional) field (May-October) can provide for extra capacity for an additional four groups to meet the needs of most requests.


Central to Cornwall, in the heart of the countryside, and well resourced,

Nine Ashes is a unique camp site, and well worth a visit
