General

  • 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.

Please note

Dogs are not allowed in the accommodation units.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

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

    Everything! The owners were so helpful and the location was brilliant. The facilities are fantastic. Great camper's kitchen with hob and all cooking equipment and cutlery needed. Fridge and freezer available in separate block. The farm itself was stunning and brilliantly situated. We will definitely be back!

    Everything! Very well kept caravan and excellent location on the farm. Will definitely stay again :)

    Disliked: 

    Lack of signal (not the owners fault though) but wasn't needed really anyway :)
    Also the main bedroom curtain on the right side has no stopper so don't open them all the way to the end.

    Great Campsite. Quiet and very friendly. Great facilities, including shower block and separate kitchen area with all the basics (washing machine, fridge-freezer, kettle etc). Has a nature trail on site and is a 5/10 min drive from Falmouth making it an excellent base if you want to see the rest of Cornwall.

    Disliked: 

    Not all pitches are completely level. However, we were able to choose which one we wanted.

    I stayed in a Bell Tent and it was very spacious, clean and tidy. The cooking facilities were adequate for what we wanted. The site was peaceful and well looked after and the shower, toilet and kitchen facilities were excellent. The staff were very friendly and accommodating too.

  • Breeze 3 bedroom static caravan
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    We loved it all, a small, friendly campsite with animals and woodland walks. The caravan was clean and set in its own little space so the small people could make a bit of noise ( what children don't? ) without causing any offence. Highly recommended for all those who want a break with nature rather than a lot of glitz and glitter. We could not have done better for a first time camping experience with the grandchildren.

    Superb site. Great for families. Our 7 year old had a brilliant time. Made loads of friends. Big field to play in. Games room. Lovely setting and views. Extremely welcoming. The fact the shop has an honesty box says it all really.

    We stayed in the bell tent, absolutely loved it. Gutted to leave.

    We will be back.

Directions


Follow the A39 towards Falmouth until you see the Asda superstore and at the roundabout turn right up the hill. In Mabe Burnthouse, turn left at the crossroads (you will go past a pub called The New Inn) and follow this road for approximately two miles (between Argal and College Reservoirs) to the crossroads. Turn right towards Gweek and go through Lamanva and Treverva (don’t go to Constantine). The farm is three-quarters of a mile beyond Treverva on the lefthand side.

Satnav information - important
If you follow satnav it will try and take you via Mabe Church (as mentioned above do not take this right turn and continue on the main road) continue on the main road past Argle Lake up to the Cross Roads and turn right, this road will then lead you to the clear entrance of Menallack Farm Campsite on your left hand side. Sat Nav may say "arrived at destination" at our Neighbour 'Hellend House' please continue driving for a further 100 yards and the entrance to the campsite is on your left.
