1st time here, 2 night getaway break, Relaxing, peaceful, wonderful

Poole Farm
A lovely little site, only an hours drive from my home, had a lovely warm welcome from Gregg, he explained where all facilities were, and lots of leaflets for local attractions, showed us the shower room and laundry/washing up room, where you will also find home made jams, chutneys, marmalades all at a reasonable price, a book swap and a few essentials if you forget or run out, they also offer a food service, priced accordingly, such as evening meals, pizza, desserts, cream teas and pastries, which you can order and they deliver it to your door, there is wifi onsite and the code is provided in your welcome pack,( i didn't use it as i have my own in the van and that worked well) but could be handy for people who dont have it built into their vans, there is a lovely dog walking area kept neat and tidy just like the rest of the site, all clean and immaculate, after showing us around Gregg offered us a drink and left us to setting up, There is 5 pitches onsite all with electric water and waste, also a chemical toilet point for motorhomes and your toilet cassette, what I also liked was a raised dog shower with a ramp for them to walk up to get in there and a blow dryer so you can dry them off, I don't have a dog but thought that would be a bonus for dog owners after a walk in the local woods or along the river which runs along side the site If you need anything all you have to do is ask and they will help you out, Follow their directions on their webpage and not sat nav/google maps, as there is a very narrow little bridge that caravans will not fit across, i checked google maps before leaving home and it wanted to send me that way, so i ignored and followed owners direction through Launceston, takes about 2-3 minuets longer Overall i thought lovely site very quiet, just local animal sound, birds, horses and cows, will definitely be booking again, Well done to Gregg, Louise and there dog Henry for a relaxing stay if only it was for 2 night

Fantastic & peaceful place to stay

Poole Farm
What a lovely site & even better welcome. Louise & Greg certainly make it their mission to give all their guests both 2 legged & 4 pawed a very comfortable & provisioned stay. With very clean & tidy facilities. We ordered an evening meal for the day of our arrival & a desert for me. Which as it was last year was extremely delicious & reasonably priced. Our 2 hounds were given a little individual doggy welcome pack in the form of a big biscuit each & poo bag. If ANYONE is thinking of staying at Poole Farm just get on and book. You certainly WON'T be disappointed.

Fantastic site

Poole Farm
We booked this site for a 5 day break over Easter 2024 (had to delay one day due to high winds) Greg the owner called us on route to say all vans that were leaving had left so we had clear route down the narrow entrance road (about 1/2 mile) on arrival at site we were greeted by Greg who welcomed to site and explained the pitch location etc. He also offered free tea and biscuits once we had set up. The site itself is beautifully kept with a lovely heated shower room and toilet along with an information room which has a stock of essential items if you have forgotten anything. It also has a stock on lovely home made chutneys and frozen meals. Not long after we set up Greg and Lou came round with some free home made hot cross buns, Easter eggs and a vase of Daffodils which was really lovely. They also supplied a free cream tea the following day which again was freshly cooked. They also do Sunday roast for £11.50 which we had IT WAS AMAZING and followed by a pudding we could hardly move the rest of the day Ha Ha. This is not the cheapest CL however it is the BEST ONE we have ever stayed on in 20YRS of caravanning all the made more special by Greg and Lou, we will definitely be returning Bryn and Pam Matthews

Perfect Site

Poole Farm
This was our first trip to Poole Farm and it won't be our last. We had a really relaxing long weekend. It is so conveniently located for visits to numerous English Heritage and National Trust properties and stunning coastline all nearby. We were spoilt for choice. One night we had an amazing display of the night sky as there is hardly any light pollution. Greg and Lou have thought of everything. They are amazing hosts, we were given a delicious warm homemade complementary cream tea delivered to our caravan. We were also offered a cooked Sunday roast, pizza, cook breakfast and a lovely choice of home cooked meals. There is also a great selection of frozen home cooked meals available too. The facilities are so clean, warm and tidy. It's the extra touches that go a long way including complementary toiletries and a radio in the shower room. Washing machine and tumble dryer, iron and ironing board, selection of homemade preserves, book swap in the information and washing up room. There are also plenty of circular walks from the site. All pitches are level, nicely spaced out and fully serviced including Wifi. Greg and Lou work so hard. This really is a gem of a site, we will definitely be back. Thank you Greg and Lou

Amazing

Poole Farm
Wow just wow....from the friendly welcome,to ensuring your all ok to the fantastic home cooked food available (at a good price) you cannot miss the opportunity to stay here! A year into our motorhome journey we were so impressed with our visits to this site last year that we had to book again this year (several times). Fantastic place to chill and unwind but you may need a car to explore what's on offer in and around the surrounding area. Lou and Greg are fantastic host and deserve all the accolade they get. Until our next visit ...which there will be👍 Paul and Carol X
