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.
