About South Penquite Farm Glamping

Suitable For

Glampers and groups – yes. Dogs – no.

Nearby

There’s no end to glorious footfall territory on Bodmin Moor so, if you dare face the wrath of the Beast, don your boots and strike out to the ancient standing stones of The Hurlers and The Cheesewring or the peaks of Rough Tor and Brown Willy (Cornwall’s highest points). Being on the Sustrans Route three between Bristol and Land’s End, the moorland tracks are very popular with cyclists and you can explore various trails on horseback from Hallagenna Farm (01208 851500). There are pony treks, which are ideal for kids (over five), or hacking and trail rides for the more experienced. However, if the endless shades of green make you feel a little land-locked, you’re only a short drive from the town of Bodmin, and 25 minutes’ drive from the dramatic seascapes of Trebarwith and Boscastle, and the legendary, stupendously sited castle of King Arthur at Tintagel.

Food & Drink

Sample some of the home produced mutton burgers and sausages from the farmhouse, or venture into the village shop (01208 851730) for local cheeses and, of course, Cornish pasties. Sausages, burgers and fabulously fresh seafood are available from the pop-up catering van that shows up at the farm every week. If you fancy something else there’s the Blisland Inn (01208 850739), which serves an extensive selection of cask ales alongside great bar snacks in the village of Blisland, about 15 minutes' walk away.

Super well thought out, super cute, super cool

We really enjoyed our stay. Our group stayed in 2 yurts and the snug. I didn't know what to expect but I was so impressed with how well thought out the experience is. Things like fire lighters and matches provided with the kindling and firewood. Also the instructions on how to get there were really clear. I like how you can camp really stripped back with just you and a tent or go for the glamping with facilities like the laundry machines, the communal fridge and freezer provided. It's just got really cute, cool vibes and super chill.

Tranquil, friendly site in a beautiful rural location.

What a brilliant campsite. We stayed in the Daddy Bear yurt, which with the other yurts, stands in a lovely meadow with a beautiful neighbouring oak tree. The yurt was comfortable and, with the wood burner, very cosying night. My husband and I enjoyed the tranquil setting, rural views and conversations around the fire at night. My boys loved the children’s play area (especially the fort with toy soldiers) and the football field. The facilities were very clean, with a useful communal fridge and freezer and the general atmosphere friendly and relaxed. We enjoyed visiting the beautiful local village of Blisland and it’s friendly community shop. We left feeling totally rejuvenated and refreshed and will definitely be back.

The Snug - delightful

My family and I came to the farm for 8 days. The Snug was amazing. Lovely and clean and a little heater. There was plenty of sockets and loads of equipment in The Snug. The food on site was delicious, and the actually facility’s on site were amazing.the whole site was beautiful and we are definitely booking again next year. There were so many different animals on site and it was lovely for the kids and there is a great park too and activities.

Getting There

Enter Cornwall on the A30 past Launceston and then take the first exit signposted to St Breward (several miles after Jamaica Inn). This takes you across the Temple Tor road bridge and onto the open moor. Follow this road without turning off (ignoring all turnings for either Blisland or St Breward) for approximately 3 miles and the South Penquite entrance lane will come up on your right. Half way down the lane bear right and choose between the bridge or the ford and then the farm entrance gate will be before you.

There is no public transport to our remote location. The nearest train station is Bodmin Parkway and the only option for the last 10 miles is a taxi.
