Easily accessed camping on a 15-acre farm, with family facilities and a vast amount of wild space to explore

A mile or so north of Helman Tor in Cornwall, home to a 6,000 year old Neolithic hill fort, we’ve discovered a more 21st–century attraction: Mena Farm Campsite. In fact, like the diagrammatic history of man, from walking on knuckles to standing tall and strong, Mena Farm is a place that showcases the full evolution of camping kind. In the lower field – open in the height of summer when long blonde grass ripples in the breeze – there’s the most primitive stage. Wild campers pitch their tents in the fauna, foregoing electricity, while, in the main camping area above, family tents and campervans park up on the more formal electric spaces. Then there are hard-standings for caravans, near to free WiFi at reception and the well-equipped, rainy-day games barn. And, finally, there is the fully-evolved glamping accommodation; boutique bell tents kitted out with double beds, kitchen wares and all the kit and caboodle you could need.

If it all sounds like a rather crowded affair then you’d be very much mistaken. With some 15 acres of space on offer, Mena Farm specialises in the lower-key side of camping life, with vast tracts of land set aside for wildlife and a lilly-spattered lake hidden in the trees. Badgers bed down in their sets, hares are occasionally seen in the long grass, and wild flowers – pink campion, daisies and wild poppies – pepper the surrounding fields.

Regardless of whether you pitch a tent in the wild camping meadow or wiggle a campervan down the final lane from the A30 (less than a mile away), all visitors have full access to the excellent clutch of facilities. There are two clean shower blocks, a well-stocked reception shop and bikes available for hire, while children will love the wooden fort that’s part of the small playground. Lending a hand collecting eggs and petting Del Boy and Rodney, the two friendly (and playfully named) kune kune pigs is also a must.

Yet for all the farm space to laze about on and extra treats, like fish'n'chip delivery direct to the campsite, the real joy of camping here is not the site itself but the surroundings. Walk the footpaths south to Helman Tor, now part of a 500-acre nature reserve, and pick up the best parts of the Saints Way walking trail. Or take the campsite bikes for a family cycle along the Camel Trail, a breath-taking route on a former railway line. Or simply hop in the car and drive to the north or south Cornwall coasts, equidistant (at around 20 minutes) from the campsite. Which to choose? Flip a coin? Roll a dice? Rock, paper, scissors? Evolution can only get you so far.

Nearby

Mena Farm Campsite isn't far from Bodmin Moor and there are plenty of fantastic walking trails directly from the campsite. The farm is also near the halfway point of the Saints Way (Padstow–Fowey), a well-signed (with Celtic cross markers) 27-mile route that takes you through Little Petherick, St Breock Downs and Lanivet before joining the Fowey River near Lostwithiel for a lovely waterside stretch. Rent bikes from the campsite to speed things along and try the Camel Trail (a spectacularly converted old railway route 3 miles from the campsite) or pedal around Cardinham Woods, 5 miles away and particularly excellent in spring. It's 3 miles to National Trust-owned Lanhydrock House (01208 265950), an imposing example of a Victorian country estate, rebuilt in the 1880s following a devastating fire. There are children’s activities, garden tours and open-air theatre in summer. It's 6 miles to the world famous Eden Project (01726 811911). The coast, meanwhile, both north and south, is around 20 minutes in the car (approx. 10 miles). Par beach is the closest in the south, while Wadebridge, at the start of the Camel Estuary, offers a gateway to the north coast.

Food & Drink

Walk or drive the 1½ miles into the village of Lanivet, home to an award-winning inn (01208 831212) as well as the excellent Welcome Stranger fish and chip restaurant (01208 831583). If you don't even want to stretch your legs that far, there is free daily fish and chip delivery to the site, plus weekly visits by local food vans and, of course, the fully-licensed shop has you well covered for alfresco drinks around the campfire. For a proper shopping trip, Bodmin boasts Sainsbury’s, Morrisons and Lidl supermarkets, as well as petrol stations, further eateries and a hospital. It also has one of the best tourist information centres in the county.

Lovely campsite, clean and expertly run

Very friendly people. Great bell tents - comfortable beds and well stocked. Fish and chips delivered to our tent for dinner was a real treat.

First Time glamping - better than we expected

It’s been an amazing experience at Mena Farm for the whole family! We loved the bell tent, it had all we needed, was really cozy, clean and comfortable, bed was really comfy and the duvets kept us warm all night. Camping facilities are very well maintained and thoroughly clean, which is great thing nowadays. Staff is very kind and thoughtful. We definitely recommend Mena Farm.
★★★★★

Exceptionally well run, clean and welcoming.

Stayed for 10 days in August 2020. Bit of a nightmare when our tent was damaged by Storm Francis, but Ali and Neil managed to squeeze our family of 5 into one of their glamping two-person tents for a night, cleaning it out at very short notice,which gave us enough time to sort out a new tent on insurance and carry on with our holiday. I was worried about sharing bathrooms and toilets with others given the Covid situation but needn’t have been. There are probably NHS surgical theatres that get cleaned less often than the shower block at Mena! Always spotless and a well enforced one-way system. Various vans serving coffee, pastries and bacon rolls on different days helped with breakfast, and there is plenty of space for kids to run around in the field. The little fishing lake at the bottom is also lovely. We stayed in the wild camping field and so can’t comment on the main campsite up top, but the pitches all looked dead flat to me on that part. Only one minor niggle, which is that you can hear the A30 from the site so if you’re looking for absolute night time silence then it’s not for you. Nothing that will wake you up, but know that it’s there if that’s not your thing. Otherwise, highly recommended for families.

4 night glamping stay

Very happy with our stay at Mena farm. Alison and Neil were very welcoming and helpful and the facilities are clean and well maintained. The campsite is well situated to visit the majority of cornwall within a 45 minute car journey. Myself and my children enjoyed our glamping experience, even in the wind and rain. I would definitely recommend staying here.

I really enjoyed my holiday in the quaint caravan! They'd parked it in the best location for the sunsets! Everything is clean and the toilets and showers are very new looking. I'd definitely recommend it.

Fabulous campsite in great location

Just returned from a lovely week at Mena farm. Our electric pitch was a really generous size and the kids had a great time playing on the site. The toilets and showers are brand new and are spotless - our kids are convinced that Ali sleeps in there as she seems to be cleaning them constantly! Very warm welcome and loved the various food offerings - especially the pizza. Perfect after arriving on a Saturday and putting up the tent. A great location to visit Cornwall, lots of lovely beaches on both coasts only a short drive and tonnes to do. Would highly recommend Mena

A superb, relaxing stay at a hidden gem in the heart of Cornwall

Our stay at Mena Farm surpasses all expectations. A beautiful location, well-planned site with immaculate facilities. Information provided on arrival was clear, relevant and succinct and our hosts were professional, friendly and helpful throughout. The location is easily accessible and a beautifully peaceful place for us to relax. The additional services provided for breakfasts and evening meals are excellent and very reasonably priced. The attention to detail in terms of facilities (we were glamping in the Lotus Belle tents) was second to none, with everything provided. The beds were comfortable and a welcome cosiness at the end of busy days and evenings around the fire pit. Our hosts have carefully considered how to plan around COVID guidelines and we felt very safe throughout our entire stay. In all honesty, this is probably the best campsite We have every stayed at! I would thoroughly recommend a break at Mena Farm, and we cannot wait o book a return trip very soon!

Clean and peaceful

This is a great campsite! Going camping during a pandemic can be a bit worrying but not at Mena. The facilities were cleaned so often - pretty much every time I went it was being cleaned or smelled fresh like it had just been cleaned. We camped in the wild field near the pigs.we nearly had the whole field to ourselves. It did get very windy one night and we had a few issues with our tent the next day but the owner was very kind and lent us dust sheets to help mop up a leak and spare poles to secure our tent again. He also came to check on us and see if we needed anything else. Very kind. Mena is a campsite for people who love nature and peaceful camping. It’s a great base for St Austell and the Eden Project.

First experience of camping was a delight

My first experience of camping was an absolute delight at Mena Farm Cornwall. We stayed within the semi wild area with our 2 dogs. This area had great views and was very peaceful. The campsite and toilets were spotless and very well organised to make it COVID secure. We enjoyed lovely pizza and coffees who visited the site from Kernow Forno which was a nice treat. It’s a great spot to explore north and south Cornwall coasts. Who knew camping was so much fun! We can’t wait to come back again.

Great Campsite!

Highly recommend Mena Farm. The owners are extremely friendly and approachable - happily lent us some strong pegs when the wind was battering our tent! The facilities are very clean and they have high quality food / coffee vendors in almost everyday adding to the experience . We loved the pizza, fish and chips (delivered to your pitch) and breakfast. The mood was warm and welcoming and the Campsite in a beautiful country setting was extremely well maintained.

Wild camping and fish and chip supper

This was our first camping experience as parents to a 4 month old deerhound and we could not have picked a better campsite! Ali and Neil are brilliant hosts. Neil met us at reception and explained everything we needed to know with a really clear map of the site. We were also delighted to discover that Friday night meant a fish and chip delivery to site. The best start ever to a Cornish holiday and the food was delicious. The campsite had lots of space for our puppy (and the necessary social distancing) and all of the facilities were spot on and very clean. After the fish and chip delivery we only ever saw Ali when she was in the shower block making sure everything was clean (which was very reassuring given the current situation). We didn't have the chance to sample the other food or cocktails that were on site but it all looked super. We have already recommended Mena Farm to two other groups of friends and hope to return next year.

Idyllic getaway on a beautiful site with wonderful hosts!

Ali and Neil were so welcoming and lovely, the perfect mixture of hosts who are attentive and yet leave you to it! The campsite was spotless, as were the modern loos, showers and washing facilities. We opted for the 'wild camping' which was perfect for us, seeing the Milky Way (and the comet!) with our fire pit burning merrily was an experience we'll never forget. The addition of little treats such as the coffee vans, fish and chips delivered to your tent and pizzas were lovely. Such a lovely atmosphere and brilliant place to go, not to mention the location was excellent for exploring Cornwall if you wish to. Would not hesitate to recommend and will definitely be coming back, thanks so much guys.

1st class site

I've been to Cornwall a few times and have always been lucky to stay in lovely campsites. This site however has got the edge. Firstly the site owners Ali and Neil are the most friendly, lovely people they really make you feel welcome. On arrival we was greeted by both and give information about the site and covid 19 protections. We were given a map and a pitch number. Also we was advised of the lovely local mobile catering that come to the campsite, and given good advice on things to do in the area. The campsite itself is beautiful and the pitch area is kept pristine. Huge well kept grass field with ample space for the kids to enjoy a ball game, run around or fly a kite. Addtional area for wild camping in a massive open field. On the Friday we ordered fish and chips (god send has the weather was too bad to cook) and this was then delivered to your tent by Ali and Neil. I was blown away as never had this kind of service at any campsite before. The wash/bathroom facilities were the best I've ever used, modern and unbelievably clean. We will definitely be coming back and have already reccommend to family and friends.

Amazing stay!

First impressions of Mena Farm was that it was very well presented and welcoming. We met the owner at the reception and was given a lot of useful information. Our pitch was a very generous size therefore even with our neighbours beside us, we felt like we had a lot of privacy. The electric was simple and easy to use and there was plenty of space to park the car. Each pitch is labelled with a number on a stone which I thought was a cute addition. The only thing that could make it better is to have a small solar power light beside the number so that you can see it in the dark. One other thing to mention is the fire pit hire. This was something like £5 a night and was definitely worth the money. We were delivered the fire pit (with heatproof mat and bricks to elevate it) straight to our tent along with the wood, what an excellent service! The shower/toilet block one way system for social distancing works very well, in fact I feel like this should be in place anyway! There are also markings on the floor so that people keep their distance and hand sanitiser by the door. There were about 5 showers and lots of toilets, I never had to queue for either! Everything was nice and clean, I saw the owner frequently checking the cleanliness of the block. The only recommendation I would have for improvement is to have hooks on the inside of the toilet doors as well as the showers. There's also washing up and laundering facilities. We only used the communal sinks (there are 4). They were always kept very clean, plus there was hand sanitiser and ant-bacterial spray available too. The best thing about our stay was the catering options. They have a fish and chip delivery service DIRECT TO YOUR PITCH on Fridays, and pizza, dessert waffles and cocktails on Saturdays. There's also a breakfast van on site most mornings. We like to make our own food usually but this was a lovely surprise to give us some days off. We loved our stay here and will definitely be back!!

Excellent site, clean, well run, good central location

Just come back from a lovely 3 night stay at Mena Farm. It’s a really well run, clean site with great facilities and in a good location, and the owners are really friendly and customer focused. On arrival Neil set the tone with a helpful introduction and pointed out the site amenities, local attractions, and special arrangements currently in place. The site has really generous sized pitches, and the showers/toilets are kept spotlessly clean. We enjoyed the services of the friendly visiting coffee/breakfast/pizza van :-) and I particularly enjoyed a short walk from the site via Bokiddick Downs SSSI to Helman Tor - it’s roughly an 8k round trip via very quiet lanes and the downs. The downs themselves were interesting in their own right, but Helman Tor is stunning - it’s super atmospheric with spectacular rock formations to admire and scramble on and a fascinating history, well worth doing your research in advance and firing up your imagination... I’m sure we’ll return

Excellent well run site in a fantastic location

Had a lovely stay at Mena Farm for 3 nights. The site is really well organised and the owners did a great introduction for us upon arrival, explaining all the amenities and facilities as well as pointing out the special arrangements currently in place - really helpful, Ali and Neil have really got it dialled in terms of keeping the shared facilities clean and as safe as possible. The visiting breakfast/pizza/coffee van was a welcome treat for sure, and we also used the Lanivet Arms one night. The site was spotlessly clean and well maintained, and the pitches are a generous size - definitely a big space between pitches. I particularly enjoyed a short walk from the door to Helman Tor via the Bokiddick Downs SSSI and some super quiet lanes, it’s only about 8k as a round trip. The downs you pass through are really interesting in their own right, but the Tor is truly fantastic - it’s an atmospheric place with lots of weird rock formations that you can scramble on. It was once a hill fort and has a fascinating history, worth reading up on in advance if you like your imagination firing up... we also did a big day walk on Bodmin Moor, which is crammed with a vast number of ancient stones, old settlements and weird rock formations where we never saw a soul all day, other than on Rough Tor. Mena’s central location made it easy to reach lots of interesting places, we’ll be back, defo :-)

A small bit of camping luxury.

We have traveled and camped in a good number of sites in both New Zealand and the UK. Mena wins on a number of levels. Firstly the simple and welcomed kindness from the owners. They clearly have a loyal customer base and I can understand why. I asked about local running trails and was given a number of options. My boys adored all the fun of camping and the basketball. The covid19 limitations were well observed and didn't detract from the ambience and fun. But the best bit was Rodney and Dell boy the New Zealand Kunekune pigs. If you want luxury and kindness look no further than Mena farm..

Peaceful site, even on August Bank Holiday!

This is a calm and family friendly site with very helpful owners. Its the space and peace that makes this campsite stand out - with generous pitches around the edge of the field and the central section kept clear it makes this site feel really calm and not overcrowded like many local sites, there was no rowdy behaviour and minimal road noise. Very convenient location - 15mins from Eden Project. Pizza van Sunday night serving excellent pizzas, fire pits available for hire ( the owner even went out and bought some more as we were keen to hire one and there were none available), quiet hours between 8 and 10pm well observed by the campers. The toilet block was sufficient but I do prefer single sex facilities and perhaps a couple more sinks would be great - having said that the showers are hot and free and even on August Bank holiday I only queued a few minutes. I would give 5 stars for a slightly better toilet block.

Quality campsite in a quiet rural location

Mena Farm meets the high standard you expect from sites listed by Cool Camping. In a quiet country location (we couldn't hear the road), everything is clean, tidy and well maintained. The showers are free and the washing-up facility inside (nice out of season). There are also good laundry facilities. This is a great place for simple and straight forward camping without commercial trappings. There are no bright lights, so do bring a torch! Plenty of space for children to play and the site owners are welcoming and friendly. Many thanks to Ali for helping us with some Eden Project and Heligan bookings which saved us quite a few pounds. Mena Farm's central position close to the A30 means most of Cornwall is within easy reach and we will definitely stay again when next passing this way.

Friendly and spacious campsite

Nice location and view of surrounding hills. Bikes can be rented on location and transfer to Camel trail is possible, this is certainly a recommendation! A30 Road can be heard but that was not a big issue.

Hi Maarten - many thanks for your kind review. We do occasionally hear some distant traffic noise depending on the wind direction, so glad to hear that this didn't impact adversely on your stay. It was a pleasure to meet you all and hope you enjoyed the rest of your travels in the UK. With kind regards, Ali & Neil

Lovely small campsite with friendly owners

Mena campsite is situated a stone's throw away from the A30 though in its peaceful environment you'd never know it was that close. The campsite is reassuringly small with generous pitch sizes. Dog and baby friendly, with a big field and pond for one and a playground for the other, we had everything we needed. The owners offer a chip shop pit stop if you get your orders in to them, which is great for that first night when you haven't sorted the camp stove out! There is a games room with a TV and pool table and other games which was great for being on holiday when the world cup was on 🙄 Facilities are small and unisex - my first experience of unisex facilities! But the size didn't matter due to the size of the site. Never had to wait for using anything, they were always spotless and the showers are free and a good size. Also features the usual dishwashing spot and a washing machine and tumble dryer. We sneaked a peak at the dancing glamping tents too and made a wish that they were dog friendly 👌 We were in easy reach of some great attractions - national trust and English heritage sites very close by, plus a short drive to the beaches. We tried very lovely Gorran Haven as it's dog friendly and had delicious chips! Really recommend as a campsite - we would definitely return.
