St Tinney FarmFavourite
St Tinney Farm is a tranquil holiday park, set in a 34 acres of rural farmland just four miles from the North Cornish coast. Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, we are 10 times winner of the prestigious David Bellamy Gold Award for Conservation.
Although we are a small family run park, we pride ourselves on the high standard of our facilities we offer, which include newly refurbished shower and toilet block, heated outdoor pool (open May to September), five coarse fishing lakes and on-site licensed bar serving evening meals.
Nearby attractions and activities
The coastline of north Cornwall stretches from Morwenstow to Bedruthan Steps, and is famous for its wonderful beaches and dramatic cliff scenery. Inland, the area has pleasant, unspoilt countryside, with deep wooded combes and stretches of high moorland. St Tinney lies about half-way along this stretch of coast, and so is uniquely placed to explore the beaches either in the north or south of the area, as well as Devon, Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor.

Take the A39 & B3266 to Bodmin, joining the A30 signposted St. Austell, then take the A391 to Eden. The Eden Project does get busy the summer and requires quite a bit of walking. There are various places which serve food, but the restaurant at the entrance is more expensive than the others on the valley floor. If you don't fancy much walking, there is a "Land Train" as an alternative.
There are a wealth of places to be explored on Dartmoor - here are just two:

Things to consider before booking or arriving
St. Tinney Farm Holidays is a small, family owned, run and orientated holiday park, converted from a working dairy farm. As such, we strive to provide high standards of accommodation and a relaxing, friendly atmosphere, without detracting from the natural surroundings.
Due to the nature of the farm, access to the accommodation areas is often via semi paved or gravel paths and driveways. Located in the small rural hamlet of Otterham, access is via a single track country lane with passing places, approximately 1 mile from the main A39.
Our fishing lakes are accessed by earth and shingle tracks and pathways, two lakes are close to the accommodation areas, but even these require access over uneven ground.
If you or a member of your party have difficulty with mobility, or have specific access requirements, please let us know at the time of booking and we will do our best to advise you on the suitability of accommodation and facilities.
