Mena Farm: Lotus bell tents named Oak, Willow and Hazel

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.

    Owner friendly. Site well kept and attractive. Lovely scenery. Great location. Modern, clean toilet/ shower block. Washing up facilities good.

    Disliked: 

    Showers could do with being a bit bigger so that a bench or shelf could be installed. There are only hangers on the door which are quite close to the running shower water that towel, clean clothes can often get wet. Perhaps a shower curtain could be installed to limit but little space to do this. WiFi is sporadic and limited to areas close to reception.

From the manager...

Hi David - many thanks for your review. We have both single and family-sized cubicles and in addition to door hooks on all cubicles, the single showers each have a wide window ledge/shelf and the family showers have benches, so I was a little confused to read your feedback. Perhaps you missed seeing them? Re wifi, and for the benefit of others reading this review, wifi is free to use here at Mena unlike many sites, but we are a small site in the middle of rural Cornwall where the local internet offerings are limited. Ironically though, we have full 4G connectivity so most guests find our wifi sufficient for their needs. With kind regards, Ali & Neil

From the manager...

Hi Ruth - thank you very much for your kind review. I saw your note re the lane to the site - for anyone else reading this review, please be aware you can approach the site from two different directions. One way is very narrow and twisty - not good if you're towing or in a van. The other way gives easy access, so please do follow the directions on the website and not sat nav - the latter will bring you the wrong way. Hope to see you again another time. With kind regards, Ali & Neil

From the manager...

Hi there - thank you for your review. I’m sorry you thought the shower was poor. If you’d told us during your stay we could have done something about it. The water temperature is set at the legal threshold and tested regularly. As of today, the pressure is good and the temperature is exactly where it should be. Please bear in mind that you were here in Autumn and in the midst of a pandemic, so all the windows and doors are kept open for ventilation. I expect it was a little chilly but I’m sure you appreciate that this is for the safety of all our guests. If you prefer heated shower blocks, then perhaps ensure they’re on offer to avoid disappointment. All the best, Ali & Neil

Local attractions

Within the same distance is Camel Valley Vineyard, Cornwall's biggest – yes, they do tours and yes, there is a shop.

If you've brought your bike along with you, pedal the six miles or so to the Forestry Commission's Cardinham Woods for bike and mountain bike rides among the trees; bike hire is available at the centre here if you're arriving by foot or car.

Get in the car or hail the local bus for your other excellent options around here, such as a potter and a seafood sample at the handsome little fishing village of Fowey, the Lost Gardens of Heligan or ziplining at Adrenaline Quarry – all within 30 to 35 minutes' drive.
