General

  • Award-winning family-run site four miles from the coast
  • Five coarse fishing lakes on site
  • Spacious well-kept pitches in 34 acres of Cornish countryside

This family-run site converted from a working dairy farm is the recipient of multiple awards, has first-rate facilities including a cosy pub with free wifi, and has five well-stocked fishing lakes on site.

St Tinney is on the edge of the tiny hamlet of Otterham and four miles from the north Cornish coast in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The team prides itself on the site’s high standards, whether that’s the newly refurbished shower and loo block with walk-in wetroom showers, the top-quality evening meals in the bar, or the 12 David Bellamy Gold Conservation Awards showcasing St Tinney’s commitment to conservation and nature...

It’s all in 34 acres of countryside a mile from the A39, with access to the site via a single track lane with passing places and around it by driveways and gravel paths.

Five well-stocked coarse fishing lakes are accessible via earth and shingle tracks. If anyone in your party has mobility issues, let the team know in the ‘Other details’ box when booking and they’ll do their best to accommodate you.

All pitches are located round the outside edges of our fields, and St Tinney has a modern professionally-installed launderette with commercial washing and drying machines, as well as a combined recycling area outside the shower and toilet block. Two covered outdoor sinks with hot and cold running water for washing up cutlery and crockery are located outside the shower and toilet block. An on-site licensed bar serves a range of drinks and tasty food.

For supplies, Marshgate Post Office a mile and a half away has a general store, with another and a post office at Wainhouse Corner within two and a half miles. There’s a Morrisons at Bude and a Tesco at Launceston, but if you want to take it easy you can get your shopping delivered to the site by Tesco, Asda or Waitrose. Being able to grocery shop from the farm pub? There should be an award for that too.

    was peaceful and relaxing away from busyness. lovely pub onsite with nice meals, toilets were clean, dishwashing was clean and site generally was very clean and tidy

    Disliked: 

    first afternoon and second morning was a digger working on other side of hedge (was still part of site) while it was working wasnt so bad but workmen left it on tick over for almost an hour drove me crazy and had to go out. obviously digger wont always be there and i understand they had work to do

From the manager...

Hi, thanks for taking the time to write a review and your very kind comments about the normally peaceful and quiet atmosphere, the cleanliness of the site and quality of the pub. We did really enjoy meeting and talking with you.

I'm afraid that there was indeed a tractor working for a short time while you were here. It was carrying out repairs to a drainage ditch in the field next to yours. As you state, this wouldn't normally be there.

I'm really sorry that it spoilt your enjoyment of the peaceful atmosphere. I wish you had mentioned it during your stay, as we would certainly have either asked them to stop, or moved you to a different pitch, or camping field altogether. Please do give us a call or send us an email to discuss, we hope to see you again.

From the manager...

Many thanks for taking the time to write a review, I'm sorry that your children found the push down taps a challenge. I belive that they are of a similar type found in many commercial wash rooms, designed specifically so that people and young children do not leave taps running unnecessarily.

Kind regards

From the manager...

Lovely to meet you, we're so glad you had a good time and thanks for taking the time to write a review. We hope to see you again! A note to other readers: Our farm is located in a quiet rural area of Cornwall close to the coast and some amazing sandy, bathing and surfing beaches. It is easily reached via the M5, A30 and A39 main road networks. The last mile to the farm from the main A39 road is via a single track rural lane with passing places.

Great basic campsite with unusual extras 09/09/2016

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Denise C. Confirmed

  • Willow Park non-electric grass trailer tent, tent or campervan pitch (XL)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Your pitch area is huge. At camp set up we were told where the sun rose and set and generally where the prevailing winds came from. This was excellent information for any camper!

    This was a good family site. No Dogs allowed - which was why we chose it for my dog nervous daughter. It also meant she could roam and play with new friends on the good quality wooden playground structure and play games without worry.

    We don't fish but checked out the fishing areas and spent some time watching the other inhabitants in the ponds. Great for wildlife spotters.

    We were so busy we only had a couple of turns in the outdoor pool. It's a lovely feature - salt water rather than chlorine. Very clean and safe.

    I gave 8/10 because whilst the bathroom block was as clean as possible, (and it was but quickly overheated and dirty a few hours after cleaning) I think it needs better ventilation.

    Crackington Haven is a fantastic beach with waves, rock pools and sand areas.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing.

From the manager...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. You stayed with us in peak season, when we were completely full and when the weather was extraordinarily warm and humid. The shower block is also used by people using the pool and during the high season, it is cleaned several times a day as described in the other reviews here. Understandably, after heavy usage during the day the shower block does need cleaning every couple of hours.

    We had a lovely time with our little one, it was our first time going for 7 nights with our 2 year old boy and it was really great, the staff is very friendly, the pub is nice and the food is good, the pool was clean and warm, beautiful views, we will definitely recommend this to our friends and we will be back.

    Disliked: 

    The first night we stayed, the pitch next to us were drunk and made a lot of noise until 2am which woke up our little one and ourselves but the next day they left and the hosts apologized for it.

From the manager...

Many thanks for taking the time to write a review, it was an absolute pleasure to meet and host such a lovely family.

I'm really sorry that the family camping next to you were noisy on your first night.

As soon as we were made aware of this in the morning, we asked them to pack up and leave immediately as it goes completely against the ethos of our family site.

I do hope that this did not spoil your holiday too much. Thank you for your kind words and hope to see you again soon.

  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The Staff, all welcoming and helpful, games room and pool were fab esp as its included in the price so no hidden extras.
    St Tinney Arms pub which is on site is lovely, very handy as I had bbq issues so had 2 lovely meals in there, again great value for money.

    Disliked: 

    My only slight criticism is no little shop for any esstentials or one within a close distance but it certainly wouldn't stop me from staying again.

From the manager...

Many thanks for taking the time to write your lovely review. We did used to run a small shop on site, but with the advent of online grocery shopping, all the major supermarkets (Tesco, Sainsburys, Asda, Waitrose) all will deliver here directly to your pitch or self catering accommodation, our little shop became rather redundant. There are also very good general local stores which sell essential items (bread, milk etc) which play a vital role in our local rural community and we try and encourage our visitors to use these where possible.

    Simone gave us the warmest of welcomes after we moved here from a really bad nearby site. I can honestly say this is the best site we have been to. They have got everything right. The customer service is amazing and every single member of staff go out of their way to greet you and make you welcome. The whole site is immaculately clean and well kept at all times of day and night. The on-site pub is very nice and well priced. The takeaway breakfast from the food wagon was awesome. The games room and heated outdoor pool are fantastic and free. I could go on and on this place is wonderful and we can't wait to come back.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing to dislike apart from going home.

Directions


St Tinney Farm is located on the north Cornish coast. We are approximately three miles from the sea in the tiny rural hamlet of Otterham, about one mile from the A39 Atlantic Highway. The roadway to Otterham from the A39 is a rural single carriageway with passing places.

We recommend that visitors to St Tinney bring some form of transport with them. Although local bus services are available from the A39, they do not run as frequently as they do in towns or cities.

Please note: some makes of satnav will guide you via the shortest or quickest route. If you let your satnav guide you from either Launceston or Bude it may take you unnecessarily down rural country lanes. It is normally far quicker and easier to follow the simple routes outlined below which will keep you on the main roads for as long as possible.

How to find us from the direction of Bude on the A39:
Take the A39 signposted Wadebridge and drive through the village of Wainhouse corner on the A39. 11 miles from Bude, after a short stretch of uphill dual carriageway, when you reach the brow of the hill you will see a sign for Otterham village. Turn left, then follow the road to your right, then take the first turning on your right, following the road around through Churchtown Farm, and following the brown signs to St Tinney Farm.

How to find us from the direction of Launceston on the A30:
Bypass Launceston on the A30 and then take the A395, signposted north Cornwall. Drive eight miles to Hallworthy and take the second turning on the right signposted Otterham Station. Follow this road until you come to the main junction with the A39. Turn right continuing on the main road until the brow of the hill, where you will see St Tinney Farm signposted on a brown tourist sign. Turn right, following the road around to the right. Then take the first turning on your right, following the road around through Churchtown Farm, and following the brown signs to St Tinney Farm.

Nearest train station:
Our nearest railway station is located at Bodmin Parkway, approximately 25 miles away.

Local bus service:
Western Greyhound operate a local bus service (number 595) from the A39 which is a one-mile walk up single track country lanes from St Tinney.

Local taxi firms:
A suitable local accessible taxi company to pick up from Bodmin Parkway would be Parnell's Taxis. If you have any particular mobility requirements, please mention these in the other details box on the booking page.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Within a few miles you’ll find coast and countryside enough to keep you rambling, swimming and picnicking for as long as you like, with other attractions of Cornwall like the Eden Project, Port Isaac and Padstow no more than 45 minutes’ drive away.

Sticking close to home first, St Tinney is halfway along the stunning 48-mile stretch of north Cornwall coast from Morwenstow to Bedruthan Steps, and the nearest beach, Crackington Haven, is four miles away: take your surfboard out here or use it as a base for walks along the cliff (bring your camera).

Within five to six miles from St Tinney, you’ll reach secluded and scenic Strangles Beach, well worth the steep clamber down to it; and the postcard-worthy harbour at Boscastle (we insist that you also visit the Witchcraft Museum when here). For vittles, there are a few top-notch pubs serving food: try the Napoleon, the Wellington or the Cobweb.

Also within ten miles are Rocky Valley with its Bronze Age carvings and more stunning scenery; Rough Tor and the walk over Bodmin Moor; King Arthur’s old haunt Tintagel Castle; and the mile-long sandy beach at Widemouth Bay, a top spot for rockpooling.

Bigger seaside towns can be found at Bude with famed Summerleaze and Crooklets beaches (within 11 miles); Doc Martin territory Port Isaac within 16 miles (see if you can spot Lawrence Llewelyn-Bowen); and fishy Padstow within 25 miles.

We’ll hit the bottom of the screen if we list everything else you can get to within a matter of miles, but some final suggestions because we can’t help it: parking on the sands at Polzeath and basking in the sheltered sunspot of Daymer Bay (19 miles); enviously watching the yachters and taking the ferry to Padstow from Rock (21 miles); the cobbled cuteness of Clovelly (25 miles) and the National Trust’s Lanhydrock (23 miles).

You can also venture onto Dartmoor and explore there: Lydford Gorge and its waterfall is 25 miles away, and the living history attraction Morwellham Quay Theme Village within 30.

Must see

  • Tintagel Castle (7.4 miles)
  • Rock Beach (17.4 miles)
