Welcome to Pentiddy Natural Burials
Found on the edge of Bodmin Moor near the village of Pensilva, Pentiddy Natural Burials is a small family-run site with beautiful views towards Dartmoor and the South coast. It provides a nature-rich, informal environment for peaceful reflection whilst offering an ecological option for burials in South-East Cornwall. Great care is being taken to create a woodland of native trees which will develop into a lasting and living tribute to all who rest here. Single, double or family plots are available for pre-purchase. This can help to remove some of the burden on families at a difficult time.
Pentiddy Natural Burials is a member of the Association of Natural Burial Grounds (ANBG)
This provides assurance of quality and best practice and all member sites are required to comply with their code of conduct. We are proud to have been selected as the South West runner-up of The People’s Awards this year for our service and commitment to the families who choose our site.
The burial site is part of our larger ecological project, Pentiddy Woods, founded in 2002. The project focuses on sustainable woodland practices and low-impact living and has been designed on permaculture principles with its ethics of earth care, people care and fair share. At Pentiddy we live off-grid and demonstrate many examples of alternative and appropriate technology. On either side of the burial site is the Pentiddy Community Woodland (charity no. 1094857) and a newly planted community coppice.
