Grass pitch

General

  • Rural family-run site on a farm on the edge of Bodmin Moor
  • Within 15 minutes' drive of Lanhydrock House and Restormel Castle
  • Playing field, nature trail and animals to feed on site

Sort yourself a serene stay in Cornwall at Gwel-an-Nans Farm, a site in a secluded spot south west of Bodmin Moor and less than a 15-minute drive from the town of the same name. Pull up and you’ll get a sunny welcome from Gerald and Sheila, the couple who run this two and a half-acre park in the middle of a bigger animal-filled farm.

These friendly folk can organise a ride on a donkey trap around the local area for small explorers before pointing them in the right direction towards a separate enclosed field for games of football and bike riding.

This is a spectacular park for thrillseeking as well as lazing about, with the moor right outside the entrance for mountain biking, and off-road paths over in Cardinham Woods less than a 10-minute drive away. Keen freewheelers can take on the famed Bodmin Beast as well as a couple of other tricky red-grade trails.

Along with pedalling on the 18-mile Camel Trail, family-friendly touring on two wheels is to be had at the National Trust’s Lanhydrock House estate less than a 10-minute drive. And if you’d rather roam, ask Gerald and Sheila about the two-mile nature trail leading down to a hidden wooded valley back on site or set off on a circular saunter around the round walls of Restormel Castle 15 minutes’ drive...

Reckon you’ll be famished on your return? Supermarkets, restaurants and pubs are over in Bodmin – check out local sights like the jail, regimental museum and obelisk while you’re in the area too.
