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.
