General

  • Quiet family-friendly site on a farm four miles from Bodmin
  • Five miles from the Eden Project and 20 minutes' drive from the coast
  • Within easy reach of the Camel Trail cycle route and other bike paths

Mena Caravan and Camping Park is a family-friendly site in central Cornwall, four miles from Bodmin and within easy driving distance of both north and south coasts.

Your neighbours on the farm will include pigs and chickens, whose eggs you can help to collect. The wilder corners of the site are good places for den building and wildlife spotting: look out for badgers, rabbits, deer and buzzards. There are no bright lights on site so you'll need to bring a torch but you should be rewarded with some stargazing opportunities on clear nights.

This is a great location if you'd like to get out and explore by bike: a number of cycle routes run from or near to the site, and you're not far from the Camel Trail, an 18-mile cycle route on a track created from the old mining railway system.

Facilities on site include free wifi, a play area and a barn with games, books and TV.

Among the other facilities are a launderette, washing-up area and toilet block with free hot showers.

For food, there's a mini market on site selling a range of essentials, and you can order fish and chips to be delivered to your pitch. Bodmin has a couple of supermarkets and a handful of restaurants, and there's also a pub a couple of miles away that serves a seasonal menu of locally sourced dishes.

    Loved every minute. Many mishaps on our part. From no tent poles to not having milk.. Ali and Neil helped us with everything, loaned us a tent for our stay and even a frying pan.. They had made our stay very welcoming and comfortable and helped us in every which way they could. It was our wedding anniversary and they had made it memorable for us and it was our first camping trip to.. after coming to Mena farm we have decided to make this the first of many and will most definately be using Mena as our second home.. Gave us a great day out using the bikes..with maps and equipment and were on hand via phone if we had any problems..its a trip we wont forget and for sure a place we will be returning to excellent ***** 5 star rating all the way

Hi there - thanks so much for your review, and glad that you enjoyed yourselves so much. Particularly as you weren't too sure about camping on your arrival - sounds like you're now a camping convert! We'll look forward to seeing you again, and to meeting the children next time around. Thanks again and all best, Ali & Neil

    Lovely little site with everything you need in a base for exploring all the beautiful surroundings. Toilets and showers were kept extremely clean, even in the rain with wet grass, although they could do with an update, but I think the new owners already have plans for that in the future. Site quiet and owners very hospitable. Play area for kids right in middle of field so you can keep an eye on them from the tent.

    Disliked: 

    Some road noise during the night, facilities slightly stretched and tired

From the manager...

Hi there - many thanks for your review. Depending on the direction, the wind sometimes brings a little traffic noise from the A30 with it - a small downside to the convenient location of our site. Our loos will be getting a facelift over the winter months - unfortunately, having only taken over Mena in April, there was no time to do this prior to the Summer season... Thanks and all best, Ali & Neil

  • Liked: 

    Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Central to all of Cornwall, great access to beaches moors and tourist attractions. Centralized childrens' play area meant we could relax but still keep an eye on our kids and they were able to make holiday friendships. Lovely and peaceful with relaxing fields and lake for extra tranquillity.

    Disliked: 

    toilets could be updated as bank holiday usage meant they were insufficient at peak times!

From the manager...

Hi there - many thanks for your lovely review. Our facilities are sufficient for the size of site that are, but you're right, they can still get a little busy at peak times. We do intend to add additional facilities when we replace our look block this winter, which should ease the pressure in the mornings in the future. All the very best, Ali & Neil
