Great Kellow Farm: Wonderful view towards Polperro

General

  • Quiet family-run site on a working farm a mile from Polperro
  • A 10-minute drive to Looe and Lantic Bay; 40 minutes to Eden Project
  • Dog-friendly pitches with stunning views of the Cornish coast

A big choice of bays and a prime spot on a working farm above the historic fishing village of Polperro… that’s what you get at Great Kellow Farm, a family-friendly, dog-friendly site with the gorgeous Cornwall countryside scenery all around, of course, sea views, with its location high above the village.

That mix of coast and country is excellent for walkers too – there are plenty of places to stroll nearby, including the South West Coast Path, which can be picked up less than a mile away in Polperro. It’s a short stroll down a steep hill to the village for pubs, restaurants, cafés, a shop and a bakery. (Many guests walk down and get a taxi back up – speak to site staff and they can recommend a taxi company.)

If you’re keen to see more of the Cornish coast (and you should be, because it’s pretty spectacular) you can also get to places like Looe, Polruan and Lantic Bay within 15 minutes’ drive, or cast your net further to get to Fowey, 40 minutes away. Turing the attention inland, meanwhile, days out might take you to Lanhydrock House, Adrenalin Quarry or the famed biomes of the Eden Project.

Facilities on site are low key but well kept: there’s a smart modern bathroom block with hot showers, family bathrooms and baby changing, plus plenty of other handy things including multiple water points, a recycling facility and a freezer for ice packs.

  • Liked: 

    Loved the site, it’s close enough to Polperro that it’s easy to access on foot, which is a big bonus when you’ve been walking on the coast path all day!

    Quite a basic site but really great facilities, I was so impressed with how well thought out the shower block was, and everything was spotlessly clean.

    Can’t wait to come back!

Directions


If bringing a motorhome or caravan, don’t follow Google Maps/satnav but use the instructions below.

Leave Looe, heading for Pelynt. In Pelynt, take the left turn by the church and follow sign for Lansallos. At the crossroads turn left and travel for about 3/4 mile, then turn left again at the staggered crossroads, looking out for the Great Kellow sign. After half a mile you’ll see another sign at a right-hand bend. Follow the road around two more bends and the Great Kellow Farm entrance is on your left.

Please be aware that from the village of Pelynt you will be on country roads but there are multiple passing places.

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

So, the seaside has caught your eye. It’s no surprise, because there’s a lot of that around this area, and a real load of activities. Your nearest beach days include Looe (10 minutes’ drive), where there’s crabbing and sandcastle crafting to get stuck into or Talland Bay (10 minutes), a quieter place for swimming and Lansallos beach (10 minutes) with some splendid coastal walks around it.

Lantic Bay (10 minutes) is a nice way to round off your seaside adventures, as is joining in with the fishing in Fowey (40 minutes), before moving onto the big activity centre at Adrenalin Quarry (25 minutes). The big question there is ziplining, go-karting or the inflatable assault course?

Feeling like some nature or wildlife too? Porfell Wildlife Park & Sanctuary (15 minutes) is one of the closest spots to the site, while Eden Project (40 minutes) has rainforest biomes further out. You might want to see the Lanhydrock House and Garden (half an hour), a Victorian country house with some spectacular gardens, or the three-acre Hidden Valley Gardens (35 minutes) too.

Must see

  • Eden Project (10.7 miles)
  • Lost Gardens of Heligan (13.2 miles)
