Clear blue skies

General

  • Friendly hidden park in a Cornish wildlife haven
  • Two miles from St Ives and five from Penzance
  • Excellent evenings with bbqs, communal firepit and first-class sunsets

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 around the communal fire bowl, or settle down by your own fire bowl or barbecue instead (just bring along your own wood or charcoal and remember that open fires aren't allowed). A pub serving food is about 15 minutes' walk away via a footpath across the fields.

The decent and clean facilities on site include a toilet and shower block with hot water and washing-up areas, an area for washing off and hanging up wetsuits and surfboards, and a fridge freezer for guests to store cooler packs and non-perishables.

Please note

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

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

    Really appreciated that this site prohibited dogs - brilliant. Felt a very safe site, no noise after 10pm, and friendly. Good information from owner about local facilities and routes when asked for - pub within walking distance across fields.
    There toilets and showers absolutely fine, clean, worked efficiently, free hot showers, but no that many.
    If you want back to basics, no frills, and beautiful location - clean with loads of space, then don’t hesitate.

    Disliked: 

    Toilet and shower facilities were in demand at times, so pick your time and it’s fine.
    No rubbish recycling facility.

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 (ask Lower Pentreath Farm owner Russell for tips or check out the tourist info at reception).

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.
