Menagwins Farm: Bell tent view

General

  • Dog-friendly pop-up site surrounded by the Cornwall countryside
  • Walking distance from the beach; a 15-minute drive to the Eden Project
  • Links to trails and footpaths; pub nearby; natural spring water on tap

Pop up and pitch up… that's the method at Menagwins Farm, a family-run pop-up campsite in the Pentewan Valley. Surrounded by the Cornwall countryside and woodlands, this family-friendly and dog-friendly site is just outside an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has views towards the local tin mines. So, gather a group, round up the family or whisk your partner away for a break in the outdoors, as you’ll be well-based for cycling, walking or just kicking back for a bit.

To the sea you go… it’s a 45-minute walk (or a 20-minute bicycle ride) down to Porthpean, where you can potter around the cafés and shops or claim space on the beach. Take your pick from several more coastal spots nearby: Pentewan beach, Charlestown harbour (topsail schooners and tall ships are the speciality here) and Mevagissey harbour are all close by – some of them with places to hire out a paddleboard, kayak or boat. The farm entrance also links up with the Pentewan Trail and there’s a public footpath through the farm towards 330 miles of coastal paths.

A farm dedicated to both agriculture and nature, the land is well maintained and structures are kept to a minimum on site, so facilities are simple and include composting toilets, a cold shower and natural spring water on tap. The spacious pitches all have a small parking space too.

For handy eats, you can take your pick from several restaurants, takeaways and pubs nearby, including a traditional 16th-century pub five minutes’ drive away and dining down at the harbour.

    Really beautiful setting for a campsite, and in easy distance of lots of things to see (Heligan Gardens in particular is just down a cycle route, which is also an easy walk - about an hour's long). The coast is also about 40 minutes' walk away, and you're not far from Charlestown Harbour which is lovely.
    The owners were really helpful and friendly, and made sure we were comfortable. The bell tent had everything we could need and coped brilliantly with the pouring rain!
    Highly recommended if you are after great walks and scenery, with a lot of culture to take in if you're so inclined.

    A beautiful, peaceful location in a lovely part of Cornwall.The natural spring water from the taps made the best cup of tea we’ve ever tasted. Perfect facilities for sustainable holidays with the soil toilets and cold showers but may take some people a bit of getting used to.

    David & Rosie are a young couple trying to make a difference to the world by setting up an environmentally friendly camping site. I loved every moment on this site. It was very quiet and lovely to hear the birds in the silence of the setting. The compost toilet was also easy to manage. I was cycling so it was great that cycle route 3 was at the end of the field and you could walk or cycle on this route down to Mevagissey in lovely countryside.
