Mena Farm: Lotus bell tents named Oak, Willow and Hazel

General

  • Quiet and friendly family site on a farm four miles from Bodmin
  • Five miles from the Eden Project and 30 minutes' drive from the coast
  • Within easy reach of the Camel Trail cycle route and other bike paths

No bright lights, no noisy clubhouse and no rigid rules… just peace, quiet and a mightily friendly vibe in a stargazing and cycling haven close to Bodmin and the Eden Project – sound just splendid? Then pitch yourself up at Mena Farm.

Run by Ali and Neil, Mena is a family-friendly farm site in central Cornwall, five miles from Bodmin and the Eden Project and eight from St Austell. This is cracking cycling country, with several bike routes running from or near the site and the 18 scenic miles of the family-friendly Camel Trail reachable at Bodmin. Going beachwards, Fowey on the south coast and Newquay on the north are both within half an hour's drive.

For days on site, ramble your way over to the wilder corners of Mena for den building and wildlife spotting (species to spy include badgers, rabbits, deer and buzzards), or trundle along to meet the pigs and chickens; egg collecting assistance is most welcome. By night, the combo of clear skies and lack of blazing lights on the park means there's some stellar stargazing to be had. Barbecues and campfires are – of course – allowed at this laidback place, so you can add sausages (and cider?) to your astronomical exploits.

Ali and Neil have added a play area and a barn with games, books and a TV to further aid idling, and the mini market sells a good range of essentials to sort supplies without stirring from the grounds; you can also – how fab – get fish and chips delivered right to your pitch.

Well thought out site with well stocked shop and lovely owners22/07/2021

  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Everything always lovely. The owners are really kind and work really long days at the moment due to COVID but they still stay happy and approachable. Every time we book we mess up dates and they are super flexible with letting us change bookings.

    Loads of brilliant stuff- a breakfast van with drinks and pastries every morning, the owners will go and get you fish and chips in the evening plus we had illness in our group on one occasion, meaning we couldn't drive home and they went above and beyond to make sure we were looked after. Nice shop with food, essentials and booze too!

    Site is calm, quiet and peaceful. Good location for exploring Cornwall. Been three times and always happy.

    The cleanliness and friendliness of the site. Loved the local food merchants that came to site (pizza, coffee etc). Lots of fields for walking. Ali and Neil go out of their way to make your stay as amazing as possible and they succeed! Would definitely stay hear again! By the way the local pub (lanivet inn) has great food, beer and atmosphere too. Delivery of fish and chips to your pitch is a great service.

    Nice site with lots of space for children to run around. Really well maintained pitches. Some amongst the trees and rocks others more open. The facilities are modern and very clean. Really well setup for COVID measures.

    Disliked: 

    Unfortunately the children’s play area wasn’t open due to current U.K. Gov restrictions and the rain 🌧, but neither the fault of the campsite!
