The pods

General

  • Secluded site with excellent views, set over two scenic acres
  • Within 3.5 miles of Falmouth, the River Fal and sandy beaches
  • Take the nature walk down the site valley through the bluebell wood

Many folk who come to Cornwall seek a base for its north and south. And secluded is often an option too, given how popular the place is in the summer months. Add both those wants to splendid surroundings, a view over a grand valley, and the peace of the Cornish countryside... and you get Menallack Farm Caravan and Camping Site.

The owners rightfully point out that this is a very pretty part of Cornwall – and the site's rightly pretty too, set over two scenic acres with a nature walk down its valley, through Bluebell Wood and to a stream at the valley's bottom. Firepits are available near the camping field and in the woods.

It's only two and a half miles from here to both Trebah Gardens and Glendurgan Gardens, three miles from the nearest beach, and within easy day trip distance of most towns, resorts and attractions on the north and south Cornish coasts.

Menallack Farm has showers, toilets and a washing-up area. There's an on-site honesty shop selling a small selection of essential items such as bread, milk and butter, but if you can't find what you're looking for, a farm shop a mile and a half away stocks a good range of local fruit and vegetables, free-range meat and poultry, bread, Cornish milk, butter and cream, homemade pasties, pies, cakes and quite a bit more.

A large supermarket is two miles away.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Dogs are not allowed in the accommodation units.

Amazing, safe and excellent camp site.02/09/2019

Reviewer's country: United KingdomNicole D.Mobile phone iconConfirmed

  • Bell tent
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The bell tent was absolutely perfect, the side kitchen had everything that was needed.

    The site itself was excellent, you feel a sense of safety and security which with 2 small children under 5 is a welcome change.

    There’s animals that are a very short walk away from the camping field which are extremely well kept and an excellent addition to an already cute farm.

    The honesty shop holds the essentials and few extras such as sweets etc that the children got excited over.

    We are Looking forward to coming back next year!
