The Orchard meadow

General

  • Attractive park in meadows and woodland, family-run for generations
  • Stream and lake on site for angling: land fish of up to 28lb
  • Takeaway and bar available in high season

Ever been to one of those parks which have been run by the same family for generations and those who have been welcoming guests for decades? If not, it's time you did… such as to Pensagillas Park, near Cornwall’s St Austell, which has been run by the Kent family for six generations to provide a pristine place for pitching up.

Pensagillas has had guests staying here since 1970; it’s all looked after and laid out to be tidy and attractive, with trees, hedging, shrubs and a tarmac roadway connecting the grass meadows. The pitches are in a five-acre field at the end of a private drive, with Cornish countryside views all around.

Once you’ve sorted your berth, have a stroll around the park meadows and woodlands, give an enthusiastic greeting to the farm animals or explore the farmland at the other end of the private drive beside the camping field: there are footpaths leading from here as well as fields to wander.

And bring your rod: there’s an old mill with stream on site for contemplative casting off (and/or picnics), along with a two and a half acre coarse fishing lake to land roach, tench, golden rudd and carp of up to 28lb.

During high season, there’s a takeaway and a cosy bar serving beer and cider, with more tipples and food available in the local village a couple of miles away.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

    Everything. The moment I arrived I was made to feel welcome. The owner told me I could choose wherever I wanted to pitch up my campervan with electric hook up.
    So we decided to go near the lake for peace and quiet. To be honest the whole campsite was tranquil. The size of the plots were huge and flat.
    The shower/toilet block was modern with hot showers and plenty of room to change
    If you want a quiet place to camp in the countryside this is it
    All the reviews were spot on
    We brought our bikes so we could explore the area and a great find was the Farm shop at the lost gardens of Heligan
    We’d definitely come back

    Again we arrived late as we we’re travelling around the coast in a van - with not much clue to be honest.

    Arrival after dark wasn’t a problem, staff v helpful on arrival. Bar was open too which was a plus!

    Site was peaceful and quiet, but nice atmosphere on waking the following morning.

    Showers a good temperature and clean.

    Mevagissey was super busy in the evening, try to book in advance if wishing to eat, we failed and got fish and chip (they were great though!)

Local attractions

Pensagillas Park has tourist information on site if you’re stuck for info on what to do, but any problem you're likely to have will be trying to narrow your list down… Pensagillas is near busy St Austell and one of the closest parks to one of Cornwall’s biggest attractions, the mighty Lost Gardens of Heligan a mile and a half away.

Leave the car behind and reach Heligan by the Pentewan Valley Trail, which links St Austell to the gardens and to Pentewan via a scenic valley; you can hire bikes on the trail or take to the water at Pentewan, which has a fine beach and two sailing clubs with boats for hire (there’s also a St Austell Ales pub here for real ale adorers).

Mountain bikers and the energetic should beetle towards the bike routes of Bodmin Moor, taking a pitstop at Jamaica Inn, an almost essential stop in these parts. The inn, the setting of Daphne du Maurier’s smuggling novel of the same name, has a museum telling the tales of Cornish smugglers throughout the centuries, and apparently several ghosts too…

Must see

  • Lost Gardens of Heligan (2.5 kilometres)
  • Eden Project (11.1 kilometres)
  • Truro Cathedral (14.6 kilometres)
