Why stay here ...

The CL is situated in a tranquil meadow surrounded by beautiful walks.

Set on a working farm, the site is located at the top of a hill providing good drainage and easy access in and out, even when wet. Situated on a gentle slope, the top of the field provides views over the neighbouring valley, whilst the lower part of the site provides good shelter, with the whole site surrounded by wildlife friendly Cornish hedges.

The campsite provides plenty of space, with 6 double electric hook-ups and fresh water taps at each standing. There is excellent TV signal and mobile phone reception.

Situated on one the most noted foot-paths in the county, there is ample opportunity to explore the local coastline. With the Award winning 13th Century Pandora Inn within a 15 minute walk along the creek and tempting cafe at Mylor Yacht Harbour, there are plenty of opportunities to break from the walks and rest awhile.

Whilst our site is tucked away, we are very conveniently placed for the village of Mylor Bridge, which is only a 5 minute drive or 10 minute walk. Here you will find an excellent village store, with long opening hours together with a butcher, fishmonger  and newsagent.

Mylor is well placed for getting around the county. With Falmouth, and its attractions being less than 4 miles away, Truro, with its excellent shopping facilities is 10 miles away. The nearest north coast beach where one has evening sun and surf,  is at St Agnes, 12 miles away, compared with the more sheltered south coast beaches at Falmouth and Swanpool, 4 miles distant. Numerous gardens are within easy driving distance, including NT Trelissick, NT Glendurgan, Heligan, Trebah and Eden to name a few.

For those seeking activities, there is a sailing and windsurfing school at Mylor Harbour. Kayaking, co-steering and dingy sailing is taught at Swanpool beach, Falmouth. Dolphin and whale watching trips can be booked to leave from Falmouth or one can just wander down to Greatwood Quay, a 10 minute walk along the footpath to try your hand with your own line to catch a mackerel for supper.

Just down the hill from the camp site, approximately a 5-10 minute walk, there is a small shingle beach where, provided the tide is high enough, one can swim, launch canoes or small boats. This beach is set on the Fal Estuary, being sheltered with wonderful bird watching opportunities.

For those who might wish to meet friends of family, we also have 2 holiday cottages on site which can be rented. Please contact us for details.

And if you should wish to leave your boat or caravan on our farm and save yourself from towing it home between visits, we can offer good storage facilities.

Well behaved dogs are welcome on site.

Please note that whilst this site is usually peaceful and quiet, it is a working farm and at busy times of the farming year there may be some tractor noise.

Peaceful site

We have just had two nights at the very tranquil site. We booked this site as it offered ease of access to visit family locally. It was a superb CL offering all the relevant services, and the site was extremely peaceful, and we were sharing it with all the local wildlife, which was great. As advertised local amenities were close by and the Pandora Inn was only a 20/25 min walk and offered lovely food in a very scenic setting. We shall return .

A great CL

A lovely site with all we needed for a great holiday. The facilities quite adequate with no problems at all. Great walks direct from site to Mylor Bridge (great pasties from local shop), and Pandora Inn about 1 mile and well worth a visit. Surrounding scenery magnificent and Falmouth just a short drive away. Will most certainly be returning.

Disappointed

We specifically booked this site for the views but there were none. The surrounding hedges were well over 6 feet high, and had not been cut for a long time. When we arrived a man was cutting the grass, which was very long, and we spent our time trailing cut grass into the caravan. The site was lovely and peaceful, with a resident pair of pheasants, and lots of song birds. However, the worst part was the septic emptying point. You will need a machete to get in, and I could not even get to the tap in the corner because of an overgrown holly tree. It is such a pity as the location was perfect, and although it is on narrow lanes, the access was not too bad. Looking back at other reviews, it appears it was a nice site, that has recently been neglected.

Perfect!

We found the site very easily, absolutely beautiful, perfectly sheltered but still with lovely views. The site owners are probably the nicest people you could ever wish to meet, such a lovely family run Farm/Barton. The walks are stunning, we cycled the routes and loved it. With two great pubs close by it had everything we were looking for. The site had well spaced pitches, and was lovely and quiet, the field even though no hard standings is very well drained, we arrived after a few days of rain, and we had no problems at all. I would highly recommend this site, but would also like to keep it a secret!

Great Place

A bit of an issue finding the place in the dark but google maps came up trumps. 4G at this CL so plenty of web access! When you get to the CC Sign go right for 100 metres and site is on your right. There is a small arrow on the CC sign but we didn't see this in the dark. A bit sloping as described in the book but this gives views towards Falmouth. Water and electric on all pitches was a bonus. Basic waste disposal but that is all you need. Friendly owners. Great walks. Local beach to launch our dingy. Two pubs within easy walking distance. Will definitely go again!
