- Peaceful farm between Looe and Liskeard
- Campfires allowed: buy organic eggs or rare breed meat to sizzle up
- Picnic tables, communal kitchen, showers and toilets
Those among you who like luxury berths, teeny tiny farm sites, cracking customer service and picking up fresh organic eggs/rare breed meat to sizzle gently over the campfire should flock to Penbugle Farm (‘shepherd’s hill’ in Cornish) for some properly peaceful days.
Even by Cornish standards, the location of Penbugle Farm is one to toot about: between the old market town of Liskeard and the fishing port of Looe; 25 minutes from the Tamar Bridge and the Devon/Cornwall border, and halfway between the highlights of Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor. It’s run by the five members of the hospitable Ridout family, who have been living on and farming this land since moving from Dorset in 2005: if this is your first visit to Cornwall, they’ll be happy to share their tips and info on things to do.
On the farm, you won’t even hear a car engine roaring past your pitch – cars are only allowed in the designated parking area outside the paddock to keep things as safe and sedate as possible on site. (Fret not if you’re thinking this means you have to stagger to your berth with armfuls of kit; wheelbarrows and trolleys are provided to cart your stuff/over-excited small children/the dog along to where you’re staying.)
Guests all have access to the pristine Penbugle facilities including toilets, showers, a washing-up area with hot and cold taps, and a cleanly-kept communal kitchen with cooker, microwave, fridge, kettle, pots and pans (recycling facilities are available too).
Outdoors, there are picnic tables to park at and have your campfire-cooked meal; you can pick up fresh farm and local produce on site when available, as well as wood and fuel for a campfire or barbie. And don’t forget your torch and wellies: this is serious stargazing country because of the low light pollution…cosmic.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on one pitch.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
