Cracking place to stay near Lizard

Higher Bochym Farm
We stayed at Higher Bochym Farm for four nights and this was our first experience of a CL site. I've got to say I couldn't fault it. We stayed on one of the pasture pitches and it was beautiful and peaceful. We had a really nice welcome from Andrew the owner who appeared on his bike as we arrived. He showed us to our pitch and explained everything to us before giving us a welcome pack that contained eggs and homemade jam. The pitch had everything there, water, grey waste, electricity and toilet emptying, so it made setting up really easy. We had loads of space around us and because we had the end pitch it seemed like we were on our own. The sunset over the farm was spectacular. It is really well placed to visit the local area but beware the roads to Lizard Point are very narrow. We missed the turning to the lighthouse parking and it got very tight. Kynance Cove is well worth a visit. Overall we had an amazing stay and will definitely be going back again. Thanks for the amazing stay.

Cuckoo in Higher Bochym

Higher Bochym Farm
We cannot fault the owners of this site, beforehand their communications were superb, the site itself is spacious, clean and well-organised and we were greeted by Andrew bearing a welcome pack. The views across towards the naval base are beautiful especially at sunset. The hedges around the site appeared to be bursting with birds and their song. I heard a cuckoo in one of the shrubs immediately behind our motorhome but sadly couldn't see it. There is an access road to a small industrial estate (which another reviewer has mentioned) and I agree that the noise, size and speed of the vehicles travelling along it, just a short distance from our motorhome was disconcerting but doesn't continue into the night. For us the biggest disappointment was the lack of access to any footpaths without walking along what is quite a busy but narrow road. However, we cycled to the Lizard and as our pitches are booked we could drive with confidence knowing that we would be able to park there on our return. This is a good base to explore this part of the country from.

A cracking summer holiday

Higher Bochym Farm
Spent 12 nights here as part of our summer holidays. Our first visit and what a great CL. Loads of space, very well kept and service pitches too boot!! A very friendly welcome from Andrew on arrival with homemade marmalade, free range eggs and local information pack. Not given 5 stars for peace and tranquility due to noise from nearby main road and road at rear of site to an industrial estate. Noise only really noticable during daylight hours but there nevertheless. That said it hasn't stopped us from booking our return in 2020. We can't wait to return!!!!!!!!

We could not be happier.

Higher Bochym Farm
Andrew and Sarah provide a gem of a site. Hard roads approach this very spacious site, with great views, hard standing or grass, and individual Water and Waste. 16 amp power and Free WIFI around 50mg. Their shop provides local eggs, bacon, Black Pudding Hogs pudding and home made preserves plus much more. They are extending their shop later this summer. Their laundry is excellent. We return regularly throughout the year from Nottinghamshire.

Best CL experience to date...

Higher Bochym Farm
Touring round Cornwall, phoned in the morning and got last free pitch for that evening. Made very welcome by owners, and pleased to find small launderette available. WiFi very good, good Vodafone and O2 4G signals. 11/10!
