- Secluded site with excellent views
- A few miles from Falmouth and the River Fal
- Easy access to Cornwall's north and south coasts
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.
