The Owner Says

At our small and friendly site you can experience ‘real camping’ with plenty of space, real campfires, pretty fields, shallow streams, small lakes with rowing boats and an abundance of wildlife. Our site is very relaxed; we don’t have set pitches so you can pitch your tent where you choose in our camping fields. We welcome families, groups and couples, anyone looking for a countryside retreat. Children especially love to explore our site, wading in the stream in wellies, rowing around the lake, looking for the farm animals or hunting for the hidden rope swings.

There’s always animals to meet at our farm, on our site you can see wild geese, owls, hawks, buzzards, herons, jays, rabbits, foxes, badgers, field mice, trout in the stream. Or you can meet our friendly animals, our miniature goats Matilda, Bluebell and Rose, our pigs Rodney and Del Boy and our Chickens and Ducks. We sell the Duck and Chicken eggs for your breakfast as well as a selection of home grown plants.

Our ethos is simple and natural. Therefore we have no clubhouse or constant traffic noise and we are a real escape from everyday pressures. We offer simple shower and toilet facilities and plenty of space to enjoy your holiday. Children are very welcome but due to the local wildlife, unfortunately no pets are allowed. Campfires are permitted, in designated fire rings and sacks of logs are available for purchase.

We are in a little hamlet near to the village of Sticker, which is a 10-minute walk away. Sticker has a picturesque country pub, the Hewas Inn, a shop and a children’s play park. Grigg’s farm restaurant is a short 5 minute stroll from the campsite, they do a great cooked breakfast if you forgot your baked beans. The nearest town is St Austell, only 2 miles away, where all major supplies can be obtained, i.e. petrol, supermarket goods etc. We are near to both the Eden project & The Lost Gardens of Heligan, a must for plant and garden enthusiasts.

We are only 3 miles from stunning coastline, beautiful sandy beaches, rugged cliffs and out-of-the-way coves, making us an ideal base for walking, exploring and cycling (Pentewan has an excellent bike trail running alongside a river). We’re located at the gateway to the beautiful Roseland Peninsular, a stunning and less discovered area of Cornwall, full of pretty villages, quiet and rugged beaches and dramatic coastal paths. The elegant cathedral city of Truro is 11 miles away. Mevagissey and Charlestown are historic ports about 4 miles away, and well worth visiting. Fishing and boat trips are available. The north coast is a surfing Mecca with its large beaches and is only a 30-minute drive away.

Beautiful setting, basic facilities

We had a really lovely five night stay at the farm. The setting is so beautiful, camping in a spot of our choice (no set pitches) at the side of a large wildlife pond with water lilies and Canada geese. A small rowboat and life jackets allowed children and adults to row on the water. Lots of trees and wildlife, calm and peaceful with starlit nights and fires welcomed. The only drawback was the toilet and shower block - we are quite happy with basic facilities, but there were just not enough of them, especially when a bit busier at the weekend, only two women’s toilets and one shower in the large field for non-electric, non-glamping camping. We were told we could also use the two unisex compost toilets and two showers in the glamping field, but even then, not nearly enough capacity. Maybe now that lockdowns and restrictions are hopefully over, Tony will be able to update the facilities, because otherwise Pleasant Streams is a really beautiful site, and we hope to visit again.

Campsite has potential but toilets/showers need cleaning

The campsite is pretty and has potential but the toilet/shower block let it down. Couldn’t make up my mind whether the toilets/showers were basic or dirty and decided both. Basic was acceptable as we wanted simple camping but we weren’t comfortable with dirty. The toilet rolls were damp (some had mould spots) and there were endless toilet roll inserts left lying around showing the facilities weren’t cleaned regularly. In addition, the floors were constantly dirty. The shower also wasn’t clean and felt the need to wear shoes whilst showering. Upon entrance to the campsite the rubbish was piling up, bins over flowing and this is before peak season. We left after two days and moved to a cleaner campsite - pity as this campsite could be fab!

Pleasant indeed!

Enjoyed a 6 night stay with the family where we pitched around the tent. Plenty of space for kids to play and explore and never had to queue once for showers/toilet. Hint for any newcomers...when you first arrive just find a suitable place to pitch and go for it....not sure there is allocated pitches.

Getting There

From the A390 between St Austell and Truro take the Hewas Water exit and turn right towards Lower Sticker. Go straight over a crossroads and it’s on the right.

A bus service runs from St Austell and stops at Sticker, 10–15 minutes’ walk from the site.
