We loved it here.

Skewes Farm
Great CL. On the map, it looks very close to a main road, but actually there is no noise at all, apart from the birdsong. Mostly level grassy pitches, lots of space and surrounded by trees. Also two hard standing pitches. Basic, but good facilities (shower plus toilet). Owners very pleasant and laid back. 5 minute drive (or 20 minute cycle) from great little sandy beach at Poldhu. Excellent Wifi plus EHU all for £13 - brilliant!

Nice and secluded

Skewes Farm
Ideal base for exploring the Lizard. Cozy little site, well sheltered. Easy access. WC/shower facilities a bit basic, but acceptable. Very welcoming owner. Pub 300yds down the road is OK. Decent beer and cheap meals. Hopefully, the wifi is up and running properly at the CL next time we visit.

Well placed for whole of the Lizard

Skewes Farm

We visited in our motorhome for 10 nights,together with our two dogs whilst exploring much of the Lizard coastline and places beyond. On arrival the owner soon greeted us and made us welcome. The field itself, whilst adjacent to a working farmyard,is none the less surprisingly private, being sheltered by trees on all sides.The grass was well kept with plenty of room between pitches. Both the single toilet and shower are typical of many Farm CL's, basic and functional,but clean and usable.  As others have pointed out the pathway and steps leading down to the toilets are uneven,so my advice would be to use a torch at night. As dog owners we appreciated the very reasonable charge for dog sitting ....£10-00 for 2 dogs all day when visiting the Eden Project. Loved our stay.

great location

Skewes Farm
We found this site to be ideally located for visiting the Lizard and also heading back towards Helston. It was a lovely quiet site and nice to be able to sit and watch rabbits and squirrels. Unfortunately we will not be revisiting as we found the facilities extremely poor compared to other cl sites. Our daughter is partially sited and we feel we should have been aware how dangerous the steps were down to the old shed which was a shower/toilet/information room in one. This was even worse after dark as you were on very uneven steps which were narrow and the site had no lights. I feel the club should set a minimum standard for facilities and if it is not reached then should be advertised as having none giving us a choice of whether to go to that site which we would not have. When providing facilities we also feel a clean hand towel should be available along with toilet paper

Nice field, shame about the farm

Skewes Farm
Sorry it sounds a bit cruel about the farm but it was very tatty.  However, the caravan field was nice and very quiet.  If the toilet and showers weren't next to the farm the state of the farm wouldn't matter.  The lady at the farm was very nice though and helpful with information.  We had a nice stay and did a nice long coastal walk to the Lizard and caught the bus back.
