South Penquite

Review of South Penquite Farm

Aug 18, 2011, by clane

If you are seeking a 'get away from it all and relax' campsite with excellent facilities and fantastic standards of maintenance, you will find it here at South Penquite. There are no numbered pitches, which results in a freedom to camp 'where you want' and leaves lots of room between one pitch and another. An added bonus for the children was the opportunity to hold a campfire; with logs, kindling and firelighter, we had plenty of wood to have a campfire for three nights, for an extremely reasonable cost.

Set in beautiful surroundings, the farm offers its own walk, not only through rich archeological and historical sites, but also around breathtaking scenery, following the DeLank river and looking out over several stunning areas of Bodmin Moor.

Camping here offers a real sense of the farm spilling out in to the campsite, with free range turkeys, ducks, chickens, fowl and friendly cats sharing your camping experience with you. It's beautifully quiet and tranquil and even a full campsite feels peaceful. Break out the marshmallows and the walking boots; it's an experience that we will definately repeat for years to come!
