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.

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

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Gorgeous location, but caravan very old 19/09/2017

  • Breeze 3 bedroom static caravan

  • Liked: 

    Location. Loved watching goats, sheep, chickens and horses out of caravan window, tree outside caravan was a haven for birds, beautiful views.

    Disliked: 

    Caravan very old and dilapidated, but clean. Cold in September, be sure to bring an extra heater. Oven was falling apart, burned everything and was almost unusable, yet worryingly never set off fire alarm. It would be useful to mention that you have to provide your own bedding.

    It is a lovely scenic site, close to the City and easy to get too. The new kitchen and bathroom facilities, are really nice and do make this place.

    Not sure what is happening with the old bathroom, toilets/shower facilities, they do need a good refresh and I would certainly give them a 4 star rating.

Clean , friendly and level pitchers 29/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Helen M. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

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

    Lovely quiet site overlooking the valley.
    The owners were very friendly and helpful with any enquiries.
    Nice new family bathrooms and kitchen unit. They say they are looking at replacing the older toilets over the coming year.
    (Old style toilet blocks at the bottom of the feild , but still clean and well maintained)
    The bell tent we rented for the week was very comfortable , a good size for the 4 of us.
    We loved the cooking hut that came with the tent , well stocked with all cooking needs .
    We will definitely be visiting again 😊X

    Disliked: 

    This is only because I'm being picky , maybe the outside of the tent could do with a clean . (Spotless inside)

    Arrived to a lovely greeting from the family. Everywhere was clean and tidy. Pitch was flat and in reach to use all the the facilities. Little farm shop on site had everything you needed and fresh produce. Views amazing and things to do if feeling energetic. Or on other hand just get the chairs out and a glass enjoy the scenery. Showers and toilets clean along with washing area. Very enjoyable stay and relaxing. Will be back next year with a longer stay!!

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.
