General

  • Friendly family-run farm site 20 minutes' drive from Launceston
  • A 15-minute drive from the coast path and Crackington Haven beach
  • Buy fresh eggs and homemade sausages and burgers on site

Farm life… it’s all pony rides, fresh eggs and homemade sausages isn’t it? Well, it is at Pattacott Farm, a friendly family park in Cornwall, 20 minutes’ drive from Launceston.

This is very much an active working farm, keeping an assorted menagerie of rare-breed sheep and pigs, a herd of cattle and free-roaming chickens in the grounds. A couple of ponies also live on site, and the folk that run the place are happy to arrange local lead rein rides for nippers who’d like to have a taster of riding during their stay.

The collection of animals isn’t just for show, of course – they contribute to the range of tasty items available to buy, including eggs for your brekkie and homemade sausages or burgers for your barbecue (which you could serve up in homemade bread from the farm too).

You might fancy a crack at building a campfire as well, and you’re welcome to do so for flame-grilled dinners or to keep you toasty as you gaze up into the starry skies (the heavens often glitter overhead out here as the area is far away from light pollution).

If you’re not planning to live on a diet of burgers alone, extra supplies can be sourced at the shop four miles away or in the supermarkets of Launceston and Bude (20 minutes).

Once essentials are sorted, it’s time to plan for your activities: keep it local with a good rural ramble on the network of footpaths that runs nearby or make the 15-minute jaunt to the coast for more walks, beach days, surfing and legend-learning at Tintagel Castle (25 minutes).

  • Liked: 

    I loved how rural this site was, compared other campsites that are more suited for caravans. There was plenty of space to pitch away from anyone and was quiet even though it was half term!

    Disliked: 

    Only issue was I struggled to find the facilities which were situated as I entered the campsite, although was most likely my fault for pitching are the furthest point!

  • Liked: 

    Absolutely lovely bell tent and we have been provided with a gazebo on request.. Sue and Kev are really helpful, friendly and also mingled well with us. Everything of necessity was provided and quality Fire wood was also available To buy.. we had so much fun.. it’s a scenic view from farm but nothing fancy.. it’s a farm, it’s quite, peaceful and was safe as well.. facilities were reasonably clean. Farm fresh produce (egg/bread/milk) are the best.. :))

    Disliked: 

    Nothing much of dislikes though.. a few noticeable things: There was lot of mud at the very entrance of the farm and our car was almost stuck there.. shower doors were not properly fixed and the water was cold too.. but then while on camping one can’t expect jacuzzi experience.. it was all working well..

  • Liked: 

    Very remote location which gave us the most beautiful starry night sky. Friendly owners and loads of space (essentially a huge field). Small but very well functioning showers, clear water points and washing up facilities.

    Disliked: 

    Campsite was difficult to find and access was down a very rough and bumpy track...be careful in a low car! More showers and recycling facilities would be great!

From the manager...

So glad that you enjoyed it . We are working all the time to improve our brand new site . Thank you for your Constructive comments . Hope you come again soon .
Sue , Kev and Family.
