General

Gear Farm is a small, family-run site and the ideal location for a peaceful camping holiday. Set in the countryside, the campsite is a paradise for walkers, lovers of the outdoors and those who enjoy watersports.

This pet-friendly organic farm is located near the Helford River and in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There is plenty of space for you and your family to roam around and play games. The site is open and flat, so the kids will be in sight at all times!

The stunning sandy beaches are only 20 minutes away and a choice of supermarkets is available in Helston. There is also a village shop a five-minute drive away and at certain times, you can even buy your essentials at the farm shop!

    The pitches were a good size, the owners were very helpful and friendly. The facilities, although basic were fine. There are amazing views down to the Helford river from the site. Overall we had a great stay.

    Gear Farm Campsite is magical, FACT! There are the most amazing views from any point in the camp field. The family couldn’t be more helpful and friendly. It has a rustic charm with spotlessly clean and well equipped facilities. Whilst staying there were baby birds being fed in the beams that you could spy whilst having a wee or a shower! Gear Farm is perfectly located to visit some of the many Cornish delights, there are some beautiful beaches, (Poldhu, Coverack, Porthallow) that are quiet and sheltered only a 10 minutes or so drive down pretty Cornish lanes. They also rent out tents with everything you need should you want to give camping a trial or travel light. Trips to Roskilly’s for delicious ice cream can be a daily treat and I strongly recommend “North & South” in Helston for a classic Fish n Chip supper.
    We have been lucky enough to spend our last two summer holidays at Gear Farm and we will be booking again for next year. Thank you to all at Gear Farm for making our holiday magical once again.
