Poole Farm is situated on the Devon/Cornwall border adjacent to the River Tamar. It offers just under one acre of peace and tranquillity with lovely views of the surrounding countryside. It will appeal not only to those looking for a place to relax and appreciate the views but also to the more energetic who enjoy walking or cycling along the surrounding quiet lanes and river banks.

Every pitch has access to 16 amp electric hook-ups, drinking water and ample space for awnings (breathable groundsheets by arrangement with the owners who reserve the right to refuse their use). Wi-Fi is available on site. 'The Hut' houses a modern toilet/shower room and a helpful tourist information area.

Poole Farm is situated in the heart of excellent walking country with access to Dartmoor National Park, Bodmin Moor and the North Cornwall Heritage Coast.

A fantastic CL with great owners

Stayed at Poole Farm over Christmas this year (should have included New Year but covid lockdowns meant sadly, we had to leave early). However, this CL is excellent and a credit to owners Greg & Louise. There are 5 large hardstanding pitches with EHU and water supply. Bins on each pitch. A very clean shower block, excellent covid protection on each pitch and around all communal facilities. There is a secure dog field on site where you can safely let your dogs off their leads. We were given a warm welcome by Greg who presented us with a hamper of home made chutney, jam & pickles, wine & chocolates and even a couple of treats for the dogs. We were also given a clotted cream tea the next day, home made shortbread biscuits and mince pies and mulled wine on Christmas Eve. We were offered a three course Christmas Dinner (extra cost) which we booked, it was delivered to our van at lunchtime, and it was absolutely delicious. They also had a breakfast menu which we didn't sample but wished we had. The location is easily accessible down a long, single track country lane off the main road from Launceston. Don't follow your sat nav from the A30 though or you will end up in the town centre negotiating some very tight corners and narrow roads. You will get info from Greg & Louise advising of your best approach so make sure you follow it. If you are staying in your caravan with transport there is so much to do within a short drive with Launceston just 10 minutes and the north Cornwall coast about 40 minutes. If you are travelling by motor home, you would need advice on where to get public transport to get around. We would highly recommend this CL.

Great attention to detail

We have just returned from a 5 night stay at Poole Farm. We received a lovely welcome from Greg and the cup of tea made awning erection a much more relaxed affair! The site is beautifully maintained and the pitches are spacious. Covid security is taken seriously but in a practical and reassuring manner. Breakfast was excellent and a real treat, as was a cream tea and cake (“because it was Saturday”!!!). Thank you Louise and Greg for a lovely stay.

Bordering on perfect camping

Our recent stay at Poole Farm's campsite was a real success for us. The hardstanding was perfect for our motorhome, and communucation was excellent from the time of booking right up to our departure. We were welcomed with a cream tea, and ordered breakfast on two mornings which was delivered to our pitch - luxury! The information on local walks was very informative, and allowed us to enjoy days without driving although we also enjoyed days out during our stay. Louise and Greg were charming hosts, and could not have been more helpful. Poole Farm is open year round, and we are already looking forward to our next stay in this outstanding location in the not too distant future.

Pitch perfect

We have just finished 6 nights at Poole Farm in our large motorhome. No issues with access. It’s a brilliant CL, so well laid out and maintained. The shower and toilet facility was spotless. WiFi is really fast. Loved the adjacent dog walking field with the swing chair at the top. As for the complementary cream tea and all the treats, yum! Greg and Louise are just fantastic hosts and no surprise the site is so popular. We were very lucky and got a last minute cancellation, but may go back again out of season as each pitch has hard standing so it’s an all year round site. Great base for touring both Cornwall and Devon. Happy to give it the highest recommendation.

We have stayed at Poole Farm CL a number of times and it is without doubt our favourite site of all. Peaceful and quiet. Wonderful surroundings. Louise and Greg are wonderful hosts. Don’t go, we want to keep it for ourselves!
