Chyan Farm: Large pitches on a quiet field

General

  • Quiet, eco-friendly rural site surrounded by apple orchards
  • Five miles from beaches and coastal paths around Falmouth
  • Wildlife haven with orchards, willow play areas and mud kitchen

Orchard walks, a forest garden project, wildlife galore and wild camping with heaps of room to play… if all this lot ticks all your holiday boxes, you'll be chuffed with what's on offer at Chyan Farm – and the kids will likely think the mud kitchen and willow playground are out of this world too.

Set close to the Cornish hamlet of Halvasso near Penryn and five miles from Falmouth, Chyan Farm is a cultural centre and community project, running a spacious wild camping site with an eco-friendly approach, in a peaceful rural valley setting surrounded by apple orchards.There are several play areas for kids, including willow structures and a mud kitchen. Guests can also buy farm produce such as apple juice and salad.

The emphasis here is on wild camping with basic amenities including compost toilets, springwater taps and hot showers in the site's solar-powered bathhouse. The owners ask guests to keep in mind that this is simple camping with simple facilities: the bathroom, while kept clean, isn't made up of gleaming tiles and you may well see a spider's web here and there.

The centre runs regular events such as fairs, workshops and craft classes throughout the year: ask the friendly team for details of what's on offer during your stay.

    Beautiful off grid site set on the edge of an orchard. Plenty of space and seclusion. Mostly flat so good for tent pitching. The trees are lovely and alive with birdsong. The sinks & compost toilets are positioned well. Loved the boat roof solar showers. All in all a lovely stay. Thank you. I didn't buy any apple juice but it looked good!

    Extremely quiet & peaceful with limited number of campers so well spaced out. Clean facilities. Friendly owners. Close to Lizard Peninsula & numerous good beaches. Gentle sloping ground so fairly flat pitches. Just remember to pack solar/backup phone battery chargers! Easily could’ve stayed longer (we were there for 6 nights).

    It is an absolute value for money! A lovely, quiet spot, good location, close to plenty if beautiful parts of Cornwall!
    We have been to quite a few campsite but this one is definitely worth to remember for. The site is very eco-friendly, lights are run by solar panels, two toilets and two showers. There is a little kitchen area where we could buy some homemade fruit juice too.
    We just dropped a text and followed the instructions how to get there and there wasn't any issues to find them.

    If you would like to visit Cornwall on a budget, definitely worth to pitch up here.

  • Non-electric grass motorhome pitch (maximum 2 adults)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The idea of this site linked to a community aimed project.
    Apple orchards. Not too near the coast and therefore less traffic.
    Quiet.
    Great principles eg solar showers, compost loos, spring fed tap water.
    Price and non allocated sites.

    Disliked: 

    broken camp chair, hulla hoop and two sets of child bucket and spade sets discarded in the grass beside different pitch sites.

    Compost loos have no screen around the base, therefore lots of loo paper and sawdust visibly spilling out.

    Washing-up sink could do with a roof shelter to prevent brushes container being filled with rainwater and leaves etc.

    Loads of open space to pitch your tent, we opted for a little area near the apple trees which felt more enclosed and like our own. Loved the compost toilets and solar panelled showers - really environmentally friendly which I love. Good location, close to Falmouth (driving distance). Loved our stay, thanks for the axe :)

Local attractions

Activities and attractions to keep you occupied for weeks are within easy distance of the farm, whether you want to strike out on foot or by pedal, or drive a short distance to popular places like Falmouth and the Lizard Peninsula.

A mile from base is the outdoor activity centre of Via Ferrata Cornwall, offering adventures in coasteering, climbing, watersports and archery on a 60-acre site of countryside and quarries.

You could also trot along to the horse and donkey sanctuary of the Flicka Foundation a couple of miles away, or potter around the 1,000 acres of woodland and 30 acres of estate and greenery at Enys Gardens, three miles away. More hair-raisingly, wakeboarding is available at Kernow Wake Park, also within three miles.

Have a day or two in Falmouth five miles away too, for shopping, fishing and boat trips on the fab Fal river, along with a look at the 140 or so vessels of the National Maritime Museum Cornwall on the town harbour.

Coastal and riverside and countryside walks are easy to access from here: hike the South West Coast Path from Penryn to Falmouth, amble around the Roseland Peninsula and St Mawes, or take the gentle four-mile trip from Falmouth to Mylor Harbour via the ferry trip from Falmouth to Flushing.

Within easy driving distance, the Cornish Seal Sanctuary is eight miles away at Gweek, and the spectacular walks and scenery of the Lizard Heritage Coast are within ten miles.
