General

  • Quiet and friendly family site on a farm four miles from Bodmin
  • Five miles from the Eden Project and 30 minutes' drive from the coast
  • Within easy reach of the Camel Trail cycle route and other bike paths

No bright lights, no noisy clubhouse and no rigid rules… just peace, quiet and a mightily friendly vibe in a stargazing and cycling haven close to Bodmin and the Eden Project – sound just splendid? Then pitch yourself up at Mena Farm.

Run by Ali and Neil, Mena is a family-friendly farm site in central Cornwall, five miles from Bodmin and the Eden Project and eight from St Austell. This is cracking cycling country, with several bike routes running from or near the site and the 18 scenic miles of the family-friendly Camel Trail reachable at Bodmin. Going beachwards, Fowey on the south coast and Newquay on the north are both within half an hour's drive.

For days on site, ramble your way over to the wilder corners of Mena for den building and wildlife spotting (species to spy include badgers, rabbits, deer and buzzards), or trundle along to meet the pigs and chickens; egg collecting assistance is most welcome. By night, the combo of clear skies and lack of blazing lights on the park means there's some stellar stargazing to be had. Barbecues and campfires are – of course – allowed at this laidback place, so you can add sausages (and cider?) to your astronomical exploits.

Ali and Neil have added a play area and a barn with games, books and a TV to further aid idling, and the mini market sells a good range of essentials to sort supplies without stirring from the grounds; you can also – how fab – get fish and chips delivered right to your pitch.

    Such a lovely site. The moment I drove through the gates I felt reassured. Beautiful landscaping and plenty of space. The host was so welcoming. The facilities are spotlessly clean; showers and loos completely private - no big gaps under the doors. I was there on a Friday when you can have fish and chips, or for the veggies, spring rolls, baked spuds, onion rings etc, delivered right to your door. The views are lovely, and there’s a large field out back for walking the dogs. The site is out in the countryside, and I had full supplies. Free WiFi worked great. Crystal clear zoom connection. Highly recommended, and will definitely revisit when next in the area.

Hi Judith - thank you for your lovely review, it was an absolute pleasure to meet you both. I'm a little disappointed that you remembered to take your plant home with you - I was secretly hoping that I may get to adopt it for a while at least. I hope you had a good trip home, and would love to see you again another time. With warmest regards, Ali & Neil
