Lower Penderleath Farm: Sunset on site (photo added by manager on 15/08/2022)

General

  • Friendly hidden park in a Cornish wildlife haven
  • Two miles from St Ives and five from Penzance
  • Barbecues permitted on site; pub 15 minutes' walk away

Hidden in the Cornish countryside, with some of the most spectacular sunsets you'll see anywhere, but set only two miles from the buzz of St Ives… come and feel lost at Cornwall's corkingly scenic and very friendly Lower Penderleath Farm.

The whole setup is in a serene Cornish countryside, filled with wildlife and with splendid views all around: the coastline is only a few miles away and the farm is an easy base from which to explore the western edge of the Penwith Peninsula.

The nearest beaches from Lower Penderleath Farm are between two and three miles away and lively St Ives between five and eight minutes' drive – or walk it in about an hour if you feel so inclined (plenty of taxis are available in town to zip you and your tired feet back to base).

On site, settle down for the sunset and bask in the warmth of whichever fire bowl or barbecue you'd like to turn up with (bring along your own wood or charcoal too, but remember that open fires aren't allowed). A pub serving food is about 15 minutes' walk away, via a footpath across the fields, if you'd rather source a cosy indoor meal.

The decent and clean facilities on site include a toilet and shower block with hot water and washing-up areas and an area for washing off and hanging up wetsuits and surfboards.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.

Fires, barbecues and/or firepits will not be permitted in dry, windy and/or hot weather conditions.

Lovely quiet site to switch off, lots of space, clean facilities.25/08/2023

    We were surprised how quiet the site was given it is so close to St Ives and we stayed in the middle of the school holidays. We had lots of space to set up our tent and gazebo, and could park the car right next to the tent. There was loads of room for the children to run around, we weren't crowded at all and there was never any noise. There were never any queues for the toilets, showers or washing up areas.

    The site doesn't allow dogs, which is perfect for us as we hate them. It was so lovely to be able to enjoy our holiday without out-of-control creatures running around (apart from our own children, of course!).

    The site itself is on a slope, but there's no trouble finding a flat spot around the edge of the field to pitch up. It was easy to get pegs into the ground as we rarely hit stones or rocks. The owner was friendly and helpful and was always there when we needed him.

    The location was perfect for us, close to St Ives and an easy drive to Trenwith car park (apart from when we met a bus coming down the very narrow lane and had to reverse all the way back). Beautiful sunsets and perfect for stargazing, and lots of wildlife to be seen and heard. The Engine Inn pub is close by and perfect for a drink in the beer garden while the children play on the swings.

    There was no phone signal on the site (EE), but with no power to charge the phones this wasn't a problem and was actually a nice break from being always connected.

    Toilets and showers were cleaned every day and the water was always hot. There are also cleaning sprays left to hand (but out of reach of children) if needed. Plenty of hooks in the showers and a little stool in each one. Collecting water was easy and there was a wetsuit rinsing area too.

    The arrival times are all day, which is very helpful when travelling a long way and not knowing exact arrival time. Departure time is 11am but when we asked the owner he was prepared to relax this a little so we could work around the weather & traffic home.

    Disliked: 

    Electrical power to the pitches would be nice, but this would only drive the price up and we coped perfectly well without it.

    Not sure why buses run up and down the very narrow lane to the site, but we had to reverse a long way on one occasion.

    Basic camping but had everything we needed. Also showers were better than most campsites we’ve visited, powerful, spacious, and clean! Location is great as it’s quiet and out of the way but also just a short drive to St Ives and other places.

    Disliked: 

    You can choose your own pitch and there is an option of a mowed field or long grass field. We chose the long grass due to it being less busy however it was less sheltered in the wind and lots of insects (as to be expected) not a negative about the site but if we return we would chose the mowed field.

Directions


Please note, if you allow the satnav or TomTom to direct you in, it will probably take you via Crowlas and Nancleadra. If you enter the lane from this direction, you will find the lane a lot narrower (still doable, but less comfortably). Entering the lane from the Towednack Crossroads side is the best way to approach (as per the directions below) as the lane from this direction has been widened to take large lorries

On the A30 from Exeter, once you reach the Hayle bypass, take the third exit at the roundabout to St Ives (A3074). At the second mini roundabout, about 500m from the A30, turn left onto Mill Hill and follow the road until you reach the T-junction with the B3311. Turn left and 200m after the junction turn right and veer left down the small lane. We are about 0.75 miles further down the road on the right.

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

Hit the beaches, restaurants, galleries, craft shops and cafés of arty St Ives as a first stop, then sneak over to the pirate HQ of Penzance five miles from the farm, also a top spot for sailing. If you're up (down?) for diving or snorkelling, Lamorna Cove is the location, about five miles south of Penzance, and Sennen Cove is topping for surfing alongside St Ives and Hayle.

Both St Ives and Penzance have shoals' worth of sea fishing available from chartered boats too; if you fancy freshwater fishing, golfing, climbing or horse riding there are lots of options locally.

One of the most popular places in the region is the rocky island of St Michael's Mount and its medieval castle in Mount's Bay at Marazion: take a boat out to or walk across the sand in low tide. At Newlyn, take a coastal tour to also very scenic Mousehole (and did you know that the Lamorna granite of its pier is the same used to build the Thames Embankment?).

More high-quality highlights in the area? Try the utterly fab (darling) Minack Theatre, or head to the north coast and the surf at Portreath, Porthtowan and Newquay.
