View of the field

General

  • Clean, spacious and well-maintained site on a working dairy farm
  • Four miles from Helston with easy access to the Lizard Peninsula
  • Friendly helpful owners; wildlife haven, and homemade cake

Clean, quiet and in a lovely location on a dairy farm close to the Cornish coast are the boxes firmly ticked for Skyburriowe Farm House, a small and very friendly farm site at Garras on the knockout Lizard Peninsula.

Show up here in spring for expanses of bluebells as well as hedgerows filled with common and not so common flowers; in autumn for clifftop walks followed by forays to the local restaurants and pubs (pasties are very warming), and in summer for boat trips, fishing, surfing and looking out for migrating basking sharks and orcas: the nearest beach is only a couple of miles away.

The well-spaced site at Skyburriowe Farm is in a lawned meadow bordered by a line of trees home to a variety of local wildlife, and has free wifi, chemical disposal and amenities (toilets and showers, separate family/disabled room, laundry sinks and a utility room with fridge, freezer and sinks) kept to high standards by owners Vivian and Brenda.

Barbecues are allowed on site, and a food shop, pub and restaurant are within a couple of miles. Whichever foodie option you pick, remember to leave room for some homemade cake, made freshly on site for guests' convenience… you'll probably want to tick that box too.

Please note

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

Lovely site. Good location for exploring the Lizard & further afield. 13/07/2019

    Lovely site. Good location for exploring the Lizard and further afield. The toilets and showers were nice and clean and we got a friendly welcome on arrival. We stayed on an electric hook-up pitch in the lower field surrounded by mature trees (ideal for shade). We also took advantage of the jams and chutney for sale - the plum jam was delicious! :-) We will definitely be returning to Skyburriowe campsite for another visit.

    Disliked: 

    Not so much a dislike but just to warn that in this area the phone and Wifi signal is a bit patchy, but free wifi on site is a great bonus when you can get connected. Also, there are slight 'farm' smells when the wind is in the right (or wrong :-)) direction, not a problem - it is a working farm after all.

Local attractions

To the beach first – this is the Lizard Peninsula after all, and highly scenic sands and cliffs are within easy reach including the very special Kennack Sands four and a half miles from base.

The Lizard is the most popular part of the South West Coast Path and you should hike at least some of it while you're in the region, to see rare plants, coastal birds, and possible marine mammals in the water below. From Helston, hikers can ramble the ten miles to Falmouth via the Helford River, Pendennis Castle and fab River Fal views.

Plenty of popular Cornish attractions are easy to get to from Skyburriowe Farm House, like the National Seal Sanctuary at Gweek and Flambards theme park at Helston, the National Maritime Museum at Falmouth and the swish Tate gallery at swish arty town St Ives. The Eden Project near St Austell is about an hour's drive to the north east.

Also near St Austell, the Lost Gardens of Heligan are a splendidly different day out; greenery fans who don't want to drive too far can also mosey around Trebah and Glendurgan gardens, both near Falmouth, or the National Trust's Trengwainton Gardens at Penzance about half an hour's drive from Helston.

Must see

  • National Seal Sanctuary (2.4 miles)
  • Flambards (2.9 miles)
  • Trebah Garden (5.3 miles)

National Trust

  • Penrose Estate: Gunwalloe and Loe Pool (4.0 miles)
