General

  • Small, family-run site in the Cornish countryside
  • A mile and a half from the Helford river; Lizard 20 minutes' drive
  • Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Gear Farm is a small, family-run site and a top location for a peaceful camping holiday. Set in the remote Cornish countryside, the site is a paradise for walkers, fans of the outdoors and those keen to try watersports.

This pet-friendly organic farm is located about a mile and a half from the Helford river and is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, so there are many scenic spots to explore all around. Back at base, there is plenty of space for you and your family to roam around and play games. The site is open and flat, so you can rest assured that the kids will be in sight at all times.

Stunning sandy beaches are only 20 minutes away by car, and a choice of supermarkets is available in the medium-sized town of Helston (15 minutes). There is also a village shop a five-minute drive away in Mawgan, as well as a seasonal farm shop for fresh produce. Gear Farm also produces its own line of tasty traditional Cornish pasties if you fancy a hot bite to eat on site.

    The site had a really lovely vibe about it. Very well kept, families so children running around which we liked but it was still quiet and lots of space. The facilities were amazing, very outdoorsy but plenty of toilets and amazing hot showers. The addition of fridges was also very useful! ... And not forgetting the amazing pasties from across the road which made the stay that extra bit special.

Amazing quiet site with good clean facilities and large pitches.07/31/2022

    Good sized site with not too many pitches, nice and spaced out. Clean facilities with plenty of toilets and warm showers available. Water available on site however at the time of our stay the pot washing water wasn’t working, this was highlighted as we arrived but wasn’t an issue. Good access to local walks from the site with gear farm pasties across the road what’s not to like. They had fresh local produce available to purchase and a few fridges and freezers available to use with ice blocks to borrow. Overall really enjoyed our nights stay and would definitely use this site again

It would be difficult to find a nicer campsite.07/24/2022

Reviewer's country: United KingdomMary G.Confirmed

    This is a simple, but beautifully kept, campsite in a field with a slight slope, although the pitches are pretty flat. The field is entered by a gate that is kept shut so children can play safely and there is lots of room for football games etc.

    The toilet and shower block are exceptionally clean and and there is a small fridge/freezer (I think).

    The vegetable (and flower) stall across the road, and the pasty shop would have been much appreciated if I`d been staying for longer.

    The campsite`s owner, Sarah, could not have been more friendly and helpful; she even brought me out a thermos and milk when I hadn`t been able to buy a gas cylinder!

    Great site in a good location and with lots of space. Toilets and showers were clean and it was good to have use of a fridge. The fresh veg stall opposite was very useful. The owner was very friendly and welcoming and I would love to stay again if I'm in the area. Thanks
