General

  • Award-winning family-run site four miles from the coast
  • Five coarse fishing lakes on site
  • Spacious and well-kept setting 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 toilet block with walk-in wetroom showers, the top-quality evening meals in the bar, or the 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.

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.

    Warm welcome.
    Spacious place to pitch tent and not packed in like sardines.
    No hustle or bustle.
    Shower block was spotless with plenty of hot water. Toilets and dish wash the same.
    Swimming pool and play areas all well maintained. Kids loved the fact they could play table tennis, pool or air hockey all night long.
    Didn't fish but wished we had brought tackle.

A perfect stay in a beautiful campsite: friendly staff & great fac 31/08/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Claire D. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

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

    The space: we arrived at the end of the Aug bank holiday and still found a quiet secluded pitch. The pitches are big too. The facilities: our daughter loved the heated pool. We enjoyed the pub on site and had a nice meal there with our extended family. The cleanliness: this campsite is immaculate. The showers are hot and the whole block is cleaned several times a day. Every time I went in, it was spotless, in spite of the weather: lots of damp people using it! The kindness of staff: it rained the night before we left so we wanted to leave the tent up to dry. I offered to pay for a late departure, but Phil wouldn’t take anything for it. I thought that was a nice touch. Good communication: emails are responded to very promptly.

    Disliked: 

    Absolutely nothing. This is a great campsite!

From the manager...

Many thanks for your lovely review, see you again soon!

    Grass could have been shorter on the pitch.

From the manager...

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I'm sorry that you found the grass a little long on your pitch. If you had mentioned this during your stay we would have course sorted it out and cut it immediately. We take great pride in the grounds keeping and landscaping and the high standards of this are normally something people comment upon.

Directions


The owners recommend not using a satnav as the route to the site includes narrow country lanes.

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.

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.

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, St Tinney is halfway along the stunning 48-mile stretch of north Cornwall coast from Morwenstow to Bedruthan Steps. 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 veach, well worth the steep clamber down to it; and the postcard-worthy harbour at Boscastle.

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.

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.

  • Tintagel Castle (7.4 miles)
  • Rock Beach (17.4 miles)
  • Cornwall's Crealy Great Adventure Park (20.0 miles)
