The Owner Says

Oak is a 4m x 4m Lotus Bell Tent, luxuriously decorated for adults, and with enough height to be able to stand up throughout. Situated in a quiet corner of the main camping field, but convenient for all the site facilities, Oak has a 10-amp electric hookup, so plenty of power to cook on the induction hob, boil the kettle for tea, toast your bread and charge your mobile phone. Lighting is by fairy lights and you'll have a cool-box with ice-packs provided. Please bring a torch with you and wellies are always a good idea.

About Mena Farm

Suitable For

Tents, campervans, caravans, dogs, groups – yes. Single-sex groups and larger parties – by prior arrangement only.


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.

Great family location

We had a great time in the summer here, superb location and lots to do in the area. Campsite had a continental feeling and very relaxed, all COVID precautions were well done and it all just worked the way it was meant to. Coffee van was great and the bacon butties followed by Pizza on a Saturday was perfect. Thanks for a lovely summer holiday and we will be back.

Hi there - thank you very much for taking the time to leave us such a lovely review. The Summer seems so long ago already, so this made me smile on a chilly, grey, wintry day. It's a pleasure to hear you enjoyed your holidays here at Mena, and we very much hope to see you again another time. Take care and thanks again, Ali & Neil

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.

Hi Sandra - thank you very much for taking the time to write us such a lovely review. It was a pleasure to meet you all and the bunnies that live under your tent loved the new doorway to their burrow! We would love to see you again in the future. With kindest regards, Ali & Neil

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.

Hi Rachel - thank you very much for taking the time to write us such a lovely review. We were happy to be able to help out during Storm Francis, as we'd have hated for you guys to have had to cut your holidays short. Unfortunately, the northerly wind also brought some of the traffic noise with it - an unfortunate downside to being so convenient for the A30. Thank you also for mentioning our Covid precautions - we take the safety of our guests very seriously, so it's good to hear that this is appreciated. With kindest regards, Ali & Neil

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.
