The Orchard meadow

General

  • Attractive park in meadows and woodland, family-run for generations
  • Stream and lake on site for angling: land fish of up to 28lb
  • Takeaway and bar available in high season

Ever been to one of those parks which have been run by the same family for generations and those who have been welcoming guests for decades? If not, it's time you did… such as to Pensagillas Park, near Cornwall’s St Austell, which has been run by the Kent family for six generations to provide a pristine place for pitching up.

Pensagillas has had guests staying here since 1970; it’s all looked after and laid out to be tidy and attractive, with trees, hedging, shrubs and a tarmac roadway connecting the grass meadows. The pitches are in a five-acre field at the end of a private drive, with Cornish countryside views all around.

Once you’ve sorted your berth, have a stroll around the park meadows and woodlands, give an enthusiastic greeting to the farm animals or explore the farmland at the other end of the private drive beside the camping field: there are footpaths leading from here as well as fields to wander.

And bring your rod: there’s an old mill with stream on site for contemplative casting off (and/or picnics), along with a two and a half acre coarse fishing lake to land roach, tench, golden rudd and carp of up to 28lb.

During high season, there’s a takeaway and a cosy bar serving beer and cider, with more tipples and food available in the local village a couple of miles away.

    Great site, family that runs the park are really friendly. Kids had a great time and made lots of new friends. Rural quiet location with no light pollution so lots of stars at night. Amazing sunrises. Will stay again here in the future.

Beautiful and quiet campsite, level pitches and clean facilities31/07/2020

    What a beautiful and quiet place to stay! We stayed on an electric pitch in the outer meadow and we loved how quiet and peaceful it was. We had a lovely view of the ponds and the surrounding fields, there is also a walk around them which I didn't get round to doing, but heard it was good and saw people walking it in the evening. The shower and toilet blocks are clean, modern and well kept and the staff are friendly and helpful. The fishing lake is very quiet and serene, but do watch out for the geese in the evening! There is a small shop in reception that stocks useful items that you may have forgotten and at the bottom of the outer meadow there is a dog exercising area. The quiet times are adhered to for the most part, something we have found many campsites do not stick to. Our pitch was on a hill but had been levelled out and we had no issues with piching our tent on it. As the park is out of the way you will struggle with signal (they have WiFi which is super helpful!) but we found this to add to our experience and allowed us to truly tune out of modern day hassles etc. Overall we loved our stay and would love to come back asap, I cannot recommend this site enough!

    Disliked: 

    The showers do switch off quite quickly, especially in the mens, and the taps only really have a warm function. Could also have done with more than one hand dryer in the ladies but very very minor issues and certainly would not put us off going again.

Local attractions

Pensagillas Park has tourist information on site if you’re stuck for info on what to do, but any problem you're likely to have will be trying to narrow your list down… Pensagillas is near busy St Austell and one of the closest parks to one of Cornwall’s biggest attractions, the mighty Lost Gardens of Heligan a mile and a half away.

Leave the car behind and reach Heligan by the Pentewan Valley Trail, which links St Austell to the gardens and to Pentewan via a scenic valley; you can hire bikes on the trail or take to the water at Pentewan, which has a fine beach and two sailing clubs with boats for hire (there’s also a St Austell Ales pub here for real ale adorers).

Mountain bikers and the energetic should beetle towards the bike routes of Bodmin Moor, taking a pitstop at Jamaica Inn, an almost essential stop in these parts. The inn, the setting of Daphne du Maurier’s smuggling novel of the same name, has a museum telling the tales of Cornish smugglers throughout the centuries, and apparently several ghosts too…

Must see

  • Lost Gardens of Heligan (1.6 miles)
  • Eden Project (6.9 miles)
  • Truro Cathedral (9.1 miles)
