  • 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 and sea views from 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. Turning your 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.

Electric grass pitch

Liked: Friendly staff with a warm welcome, the small store on site is very useful if you’re short on a few things and the location is amazing. Great view down to the sea and very peaceful. The toilets and showers were perfect and very spacious also.

Disliked: We had an electric pitch, a few of the sockets didn’t work but we found one that worked and pitched up there

Electric grass pitch

Liked: Enjoyed a three night stay here last week. The location is perfect - short walk downhill to lovely Polperro which is just what we were hoping for. Yes, the walk back up is steep but it isn't a long walk and actually it's just what we needed to walk off hearty pub lunches two days running. The site itself is peaceful and in a lovely setting. The owners were really friendly. Wet rooms and toilets were great - modern, clean, hot water etc. Nice wahing up area - again piping hot water. There's a small farm shop which is great for the farms own produce including some lovely tasty sausages for our breakfasts - as well as essentials and snacks. It was wet when we were there so of course it was a bit muddy in places but nothing you wouldn't expect when there have been heavy downpours. All in all we loved our stay and would not hesitate to come back.

Electric grass pitch

Liked: Just above Polperro and walkable in 15 mins (but longer coming back…it’s a steep hill 😂). Nice site. Great views. Lots of hot water in the showers. Well stocked farm shop for basics and tasty local meat. Friendly owners and a great spot.

Disliked: Minor niggles: Narrow access follow the directions given NOT Google Maps. No mop to clean shower after use which would’ve been handy to help keep them clean. Would’ve liked a hook on the back of the loo doors as there’s no place (in the smaller block) for putting towels & toilet bags. Didn’t use the larger facilities so can’t comment on those. Can be a bit exposed to the weather as it’s on top of a hill.

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, 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 the Eden Project (40 minutes) has rainforest biomes further out. You might want to see 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.
