- Quiet, eco-friendly rural site surrounded by apple orchards
- Five miles from beaches and coastal paths around Falmouth
- Wildlife haven with fire circles, willow play areas and mud kitchen
Orchard walks, a forest garden project, wildlife galore and wild camping with heaps of room to play… if all this lot ticks all your holiday boxes, you'll be chuffed with what's on offer at Chyan Farm – and the kids will likely think the mud kitchen and earthship bathhouse are out of this world too.
Set close to the Cornish hamlet of Halvasso near Penryn and five miles from Falmouth, Chyan Farm is a cultural centre and community project, running a spacious wild camping site with an eco-friendly approach, in a peaceful rural valley setting surrounded by apple orchards.There are campfire circles to cosy around, and several play areas for kids, including willow structures and a mud kitchen. Guests can also buy farm produce such as apple juice and salad.
The emphasis here is on wild camping with basic amenities including compost toilets, springwater taps and hot showers in the site's earthship bathhouse. The owners ask guests to keep in mind that this is simple camping with simple facilities: the bathroom, while kept clean, isn't made up of gleaming tiles and you may well see a spider's web here and there.
The centre runs regular events such as fairs, workshops and craft classes throughout the year: ask the friendly team for details of what's on offer during your stay.

From Longdowns, turn left and go down through Halvosso into the valley. The turning for Chyan is at the yellow gate opposite Fig Tree Bed & Breakfast, just after the small wind farm and community field project.
If you are booking last minute or arriving late at night, you can go straight to the camping field. After driving through the village of Halvasso, the satnav will ask you to turn right. Ignore this and continue straight on. Behind 2 large wind turbines, there is a gateway into a small car park. You arrived.
Activities and attractions to keep you occupied for weeks are within easy distance of the farm, whether you want to strike out on foot or by pedal, or drive a short distance to popular places like Falmouth and the Lizard Peninsula.
A mile from base is the outdoor activity centre of BF Adventure, offering adventures in archery, zipwiring, rock climbing, abseiling, canoeing, kayaking and bush craft on a 60-acre site of countryside and quarries.
You could also trot along to the horse and donkey sanctuary of the Flicka Foundation a couple of miles away, or potter around the 1,000 acres of woodland and 30 acres of estate and greenery at Enys Gardens, three miles away. More hair-raisingly, wakeboarding is available at Kernow Wake Park, also within three miles.
Have a day or two in Falmouth five miles away too, for shopping, fishing and boat trips on the fab Fal river, along with a look at the 140 or so vessels of the National Maritime Museum Cornwall on the town harbour.
Coastal and riverside and countryside walks are easy to access from here: hike the South West Coast Path from Penryn to Falmouth, amble around the Roseland Peninsula and St Mawes, or take the gentle four-mile trip from Falmouth to Mylor Harbour via the ferry trip from Falmouth to Flushing.
Within easy driving distance, the Cornish Seal Sanctuary is eight miles away at Gweek, and the spectacular walks and scenery of the Lizard Heritage Coast are within ten miles.
