Menallack Farm Caravan and Camping Site: The view to the dog-exercise field and down the hidden valley towards The Lizard

General

  • Secluded site with excellent views, set over two scenic acres
  • Within four 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 pitching 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 two miles away stocks a good range of local fruit and veg, free-range meat and poultry, bread, Cornish milk, butter and cream, homemade pasties, pies, cakes and quite a bit more. Beyond that, Falmouth is four miles away for supermarkets and the like.

    Overall, has gone onto our list of 'will return' sites.
    The site was very well maintained with large camping spaces, clearly marked. The toilet facilities were clean and, on the new build, very high standard. (Not sure whether there were sufficient to cope with full season demand) The site has tremendous views, set well away from any main roads. The nature walks were good and provided more views. The owners were quick to resolve issues and did a daily (at least) walk round to see all the units. We liked the booking in system with the pitch number, map and registrant so all you needed to do was look it up, find the pitch and set up - no waiting trying to find registration. The owner was reviewing the site to make better use of the land layout (due to the slight slope running diagonally to the tents.)

    Disliked: 

    The electricity supply failed one night (due to one pitch using an air conditioner!) The electricity supply is by a series of daisy-chained, purpose built, outdoor extension boxes but it would be better if a permanent line or two were set up to provide more resilience.

Lovely, quiet site where you can truly relax23/07/2021

    It is a lovely, quiet site. The family made us feel very welcome. The pitches are a good size. All the facilities are regularly cleaned and are in good condition.
    The nature walk is an added extra with the ponies and the pigs.
    The area is close to Falmouth and other amenities but yet set in the beautiful countryside.
    We would definitely visit again.

    Disliked: 

    Our only comment would be that there are not water points on each pitch so we had to nip behind our neighbours unit to access the water when needed.

    Lovely location with woodland walk and wild flowers and nearby reservoir with surrounding trail walk plus farm shop up the road selling great pasties! Site manager friendly, available and helpful. Good on site facilities, variety of pitches including grass with electric hook-up. Fire-pits available adding a nice touch in the evenings.
