South Penquite Farm: Pitches with views

General

  • Spacious family-friendly site half a mile from Bodmin Moor
  • A 15-minute drive from Jamaica Inn and half an hour from Port Isaac
  • The farmhouse sells lamb burgers, mutton burgers, logs and kindling

So, Cornwall’s coves, countryside and moors have caught your eye. One more splendid South Devon spot awaits, however: South Penquite Farm, a spacious, family-friendly site just half a mile from Bodmin Moor and half an hour’s drive from Port Isaac and Boscastle. Powered by solar panels and wind turbines, the 200-acre family beef and sheep farm is very rich in wildlife and archaeological remains.

Here, there are no marked pitches and site numbers are limited just so everyone can stretch out and unwind. Nab the site’s popular minted lamb burgers and mutton sausages, both home-produced, for your campfire (the ultimate cool camping experience). The farmhouse also sells logs and kindling.

Otherwise, there’s a village shop 35 minutes’ walk away, which has internet access and a small café. The farm is between the villages of Blisland (35 minutes’ walk) and St Breward (five minutes’ drive), which each have a pub.

The farm’s been fully organic since 2001 and they continue to use solar-heated hot water and harvested rainwater in the site’s clean, well-kept showers. More recently, they have added a wind turbine and 30 solar PV panels to the barn roof. There’s plenty of wildlife roaming around the peaceful site and the farm’s own animals include horses, ponies, chickens, geese, ducks and their faithful working collies (who are, of course, very important employees).

Please note

Units longer than 6 metres metres are not allowed.

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

The restaurant is open between 29/07 and 11/09.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

    The campsite is very spacious and it never feels too overcrowded. The location has fantastic views and we particularly enjoyed walking to jubilee rock, which is nearby. Their animals roam around the campsite and are always a welcome surprise when they come to say hello. The facilities are regularly cleaned and well maintained. The owners are friendly and the food from Barn Bites is lovely.

    I was such an amazing experience staying at South Penquite Farm. Its set in a breathtaking part of the country, with many sacred sites just 15 minutes drive away. t
    The facilities are amazing, and I loved the fact that there were wild horses that greeted me when I arrived and ducks, hens, turkeys on site wandering around doing their thing. The cost to stay is very minimal and tit is very well loved and looked after. Everyone is so welcoming and friendly. I will be definitely be coming to visit again very soon!

    We had an fantastic stay here. The showers and toilets were clean and the showers were hot and had good pressure. Laundry room provides basics and freezers for anyone to use along with a washing machine. The children loved the park and made some friends. We highly recommend this site and can’t wait to come back.

Directions


Heading West on the A30 out of Launceston take the first right signposted to St Breward (several miles after Jamaica Inn). This takes you across a cattle grid onto the open moor. Follow this road without turning off (ignoring all turnings for either Blisland or St Breward) for approximately 3 miles and the South Penquite entrance land will come up on your right.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Have a pint or a fizzy drink where smuggler’s once rose a toast to their pursuits; Cornwall’s smugglers’ inn Jamaica Inn (15 minutes’ drive) is within striking distance of South Penquite Farm.

That’s only one popular spot on Bodmin Moor: others include fly fishing and moor walks at Colliford Lake (20 minutes), hiking in the Golitha Falls National Nature Reserve (25 minutes) or alpaca trekking (20 minutes).

Of course, the Cornwall coast has a fierce reputation too. Squeeze through the Squeezy Belly Alley in Port Isaac (half an hour) and board a boat tour to spy on seals, dolphins and Tintagel Castle. If you’d like to see it up close instead, the clifftop castle of Tintagel Castle (35 minutes) really isn’t that far off.

Merlin’s cave at Tintagel will introduce you to the idea of magic, but there’s more of that at The Museum of Witchcraft and Magic in Boscastle (half an hour). Just save some time for the surf, as Polzeath Beach (40 minutes) is one of Cornwall’s most popular surfing beaches.

Must see

  • Tintagel Castle (9.5 miles)
  • Rock Beach (11.3 miles)
  • Cornwall's Crealy Great Adventure Park (11.9 miles)

National Trust

  • Tintagel Old Post Office (8.9 miles)
  • Lawrence House (15.0 miles)
