General

  • In the grounds of an outdoor pursuits centre 20 minutes from Falmouth
  • Watersports, climbing and archery among the on-site activities
  • Shared kitchen facilities powered by wind and solar energy

In search of a bit of adrenaline-fuelled excitement on your travels? Want it right on your doorstep? It doesn’t come much closer than at BF Adventure, where you’ll be staying in the grounds of a family-friendly outdoor pursuits centre 20 minutes’ drive from Falmouth.

Around the 60-acre grounds are heaps of activities to get your heartbeat racing, including watersports, abseiling, indoor and outdoor climbing and a zipwire. There’s an extra charge for these but you’re free to roam at will around the nature trails to spot wildlife and learn a bit about the natural world from the info boards as you wander.

Accommodation on site is fancy-free but with enough facilities to keep you comfortably fed and watered, including a shared indoor kitchen, washing-up area and an accessible toilet block with clean toilets and hot showers. Much of the site’s electricity is provided by a wind turbine and solar panels, so you can have a pretty clear conscience on the eco front.

Pick up everything you need to make full use of the kitchen at the nearest supermarket, a 10-minute drive away. Alternatively, let someone else do the cooking; there’s a pub five minutes’ drive away that can furnish you with breakfast, lunch, dinner or a splendid Cornish cream tea (remember jam first, then cream if you want to eat your scones like a true local).

If you need further incentive to take the plunge, you may like to bear in mind that profits from the accommodation help to fund the centre’s charitable objectives, so you’ll be helping others while you’re on your hols.

Excellent people and site, pitch away from sensor lights on facilities 06/06/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Joanna E. Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass tent pitch

  • Liked: 

    Great location, nice people

    Disliked: 

    Tent pitch right by containers with a powerful floodlight triggered by a sensor that turns on whenever a person passes.. maybe you could shield the pitch from the light?

From the manager...

Thanks for great review and the feedback about the light. We will look into the flood light and make some changes as soon as we can.

We are happy you enjoyed your time here and would like to see you again soon,

Many thanks

    We had wonderful holiday, even though the weather wasn't perfect. Cabins are clean, the campsite and facilities as well.

    Disliked: 

    Showers could be better.

From the manager...

Thanks for taking the time to review, we are glad that you had a great Holiday despite the weather! Unfortunately the showers in the lower facilities are tight for space and could be better, we'll review this Winter and see what we can do to improve them. We hope to see you again next summer.

Great site with really clean facilities 30/08/2017

  • Liked: 

    The peaceful surroundings and great views. The shower/toilet facilities were really clean and there were enough for the number of pitches. It was good to have use of a kitchen/diner although we did not use them as the weather was good. We booked a climbing session which was brilliant, the instructor was great and it was a great place to climb

    Disliked: 

    Having to go home!

From the manager...

Thanks for the review and for booking the extra activities. The extra income we have generated from this summers camping and activities really will help us to make a massive difference with our charity programmes supporting disadvantaged and disabled local young people.
Hope to see you again next year.

    The site was very safe and well away from the road, there was plenty of space for the children to run around safely. The venue was close to Falmouth, beaches and easy to reach the North and South coast.

From the manager...

Thanks for a great review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay. Hopefully when we see you again we will have opened up more of the site and developed the adventure areas for children even more.

    Hot showers were a bonus. Great kitchen/ dining area space. Beautiful views and we were even treated to a display by the red arrows courtesy of Falmouth Week!

Thanks for the review, we were glad you caught the best of the views despite this summers weather. The other bonus of our hill top location is good drainage! We hope to see you again and will see what we can do to boost the WiFi.

    The kitchen was great loved seating great so much was provided
    Bathrooms good nice hot shower and cleaned regularly

    Disliked: 

    Ground needs work very rough
    Showers only one working, light not working and no mirrors
    Kitchen microwave and kettle broken

From the manager...

Many thanks for your review and for being one of our first public campers to BF Adventure. We are working to improve the quality of the pitches, they are a little rough at the moment as still new but we aim to have them fully groomed asap. We've double checked all facilities (lights and kettle now working) and have addressed the issues with the microwave, a new one is on its way today and we will be installing mirrors in all the wash facilities as suggested. We welcome any further suggestions for improvement and are aiming to get our site up to 10 star next season!

    We had a great weekend at BF adventure in our camper van with 2 young children. The site is fab with stunning hidden quarries, views over to the South coast and lots of wildlife. We enjoyed cooking on the campfire, playing in the adventure trail quarry, kayaking/stand-up paddle boarding/jumping of platforms in the watersports quarry. Nice to have access to the kitchen and showers were hot. We would love to go again!!

Local attractions

Outdoorsy types will find plenty to keep them entertained for days on end around these parts. Along with the sizeable menu of activities on offer at the centre itself, you can reach the coast in 15 minutes or so for some great walking along the South West Coast Path and surf or paddleboard lessons from Falmouth Surf School. Riders can sign up for a hack through the countryside from a stables 10 minutes away, while golfers will have to drive for around 15 minutes to reach the nearest course.

Of course, once you’ve got to the coast you may instead just choose to chill on the beach. Local faves Gyllyngvase, Swanpool and Maenporth can all be reached with a drive of about 20 minutes, so you’ll have a choice of sandy swathes on which to frolic.

In the harbour town of Falmouth, around 20 minutes away, is home to the National Maritime Museum, the seafront Pendennis Castle and the glorious Trebah Gardens. You can also hire small boats here to take trips on the River Fal, or join a wildlife-spotting trip to see if you can see dolphins, seals and basking sharks out at sea. For guaranteed seal sightings, head to the Cornish Seal Sanctuary in Gweek, 15 minutes away, to see the animals up close and watch them being fed.

The big family day out in the area is The Flambards Experience, a 20-minute drive from the site. There are rides and attractions galore here, including rollercoasters, a big wheel, go-karts and a recreation of a Victorian village.
