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.

    We stayed here this weekend and loved it. We had planned to use our own tent but i fell in love with the bell tents and we were lucky enough to stay in the new bell tents. Which were fabulous and gorgeous. The owners of the campsite couldnt of been more friendly and welcoming. Even letting our little boy collect the egg in the morning from the chicken, which he loved. Letting us stay in the bell tent last minute was so lovely of them and made are night so magical. Didnt seem like anything was missing in the tent and had everything you need, had all kitchen and cooking stuff which was needed, gas stove, chill box and so on. Was nice just to be able to chill out and not worry about putting up or packing away !

    The campsite itself was clean and tidy. The grounds were gorgeous and maintained and walk down to pond and pond it self was so pretty. Campsite was also so welcoming to dog which was great as we need to bring him camping and the owner loved dogs you could tell.

    Campsite had numerous of facilities, tumble dryer, washing machines, shower blocks, play area, games room, board games, animals and walk. Even takeaway delivered.

    Overall lovely friendly family and dog welcoming campsite. Would definitely reccommend.
