Lower Penderleath Farm: Clear blue skies

General

  • Friendly hidden park in a Cornish wildlife haven
  • Two miles from St Ives and five from Penzance
  • Barbecues permitted on site; pub 15 minutes' walk away

Hidden in the Cornish countryside, with some of the most spectacular sunsets you'll see anywhere, but set only two miles from the buzz of St Ives… come and feel lost at Cornwall's corkingly scenic and very friendly Lower Penderleath Farm.

The whole setup is in a serene Cornish countryside, filled with wildlife and with splendid views all around: the coastline is only a few miles away and the farm is an easy base from which to explore the western edge of the Penwith Peninsula.

The nearest beaches from Lower Penderleath Farm are between two and three miles away and lively St Ives between five and eight minutes' drive – or walk it in about an hour if you feel so inclined (plenty of taxis are available in town to zip you and your tired feet back to base).

On site, settle down for the sunset and bask in the warmth of whichever fire bowl or barbecue you'd like to turn up with (bring along your own wood or charcoal too, but remember that open fires aren't allowed). A pub serving food is about 15 minutes' walk away, via a footpath across the fields, if you'd rather source a cosy indoor meal.

The decent and clean facilities on site include a toilet and shower block with hot water and washing-up areas and an area for washing off and hanging up wetsuits and surfboards.

Please note

No bachelor/bachelorette parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Protective masks must be worn at all times in common areas.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

    We absolutely loved our stay at lower Penderleath farm. The owner was lovely and more than helpful. The toilets were clean and the showers hot everything you need for the basics. Plenty of spots to choose from and the view from the field was beautiful. We were hit by storm evert and our tent broke otherwise we were going to extend our trip on the site, our car battery died and the owner was straight over to jump start us we can thank him enough for the help he gave us and look forward to booking future trips!

    The view was amazing and very peaceful, owners always willing to answer any questions, freedom for the kids (14, 11 and 10) shower, toilet, pot washing all available. You are free to charge your phone in the office. You are free to have fire pits if you want. They serve tea and coffee every morning at a small cost.

Directions


Please note, if you allow the satnav or TomTom to direct you in, it will probably take you via Crowlas and Nancleadra. If you enter the lane from this direction, you will find the lane a lot narrower (still doable, but less comfortably). Entering the lane from the Towednack Crossroads side is the best way to approach (as per the directions below) as the lane from this direction has been widened to take large lorries

On the A30 from Exeter, once you reach the Hayle bypass, take the third exit at the roundabout to St Ives (A3074). At the second mini roundabout, about 500m from the A30, turn left onto Mill Hill and follow the road until you reach the T-junction with the B3311. Turn left and 200m after the junction turn right and veer left down the small lane. We are about 0.75 miles further down the road on the right.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Hit the beaches, restaurants, galleries, craft shops and cafés of arty St Ives as a first stop, then sneak over to the pirate HQ of Penzance five miles from the farm, also a top spot for sailing. If you're up (down?) for diving or snorkelling, Lamorna Cove is the location, about five miles south of Penzance, and Sennen Cove is topping for surfing alongside St Ives and Hayle.

Both St Ives and Penzance have shoals' worth of sea fishing available from chartered boats too; if you fancy freshwater fishing, golfing, climbing or horse riding there are lots of options locally.

One of the most popular places in the region is the rocky island of St Michael's Mount and its medieval castle in Mount's Bay at Marazion: take a boat out to or walk across the sand in low tide. At Newlyn, take a coastal tour to also very scenic Mousehole (and did you know that the Lamorna granite of its pier is the same used to build the Thames Embankment?).

More high-quality highlights in the area? Try the utterly fab (darling) Minack Theatre, or head to the north coast and the surf at Portreath, Porthtowan and Newquay.

Must see

  • Tate St Ives (3.9 kilometres)
  • St Michael's Mount (7.8 kilometres)
