Why stay here ...

CL of the Year Awards - Regional Winner 2017, 2016, 2015 and 2013

CL of the Year Award 2014 - 1st Place

Due to the narrow approach lane, members are asked to arrive after 14.00 and departure before 11.00.

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. Poole Farm Certificated Location opened in August 2011. It is an adult only (16+) site, open all year with dogs being welcome if kept on a lead at all times. There is a dog walk adjacent to the site. 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. Roadford Laken is within 5-miles of Poole Farm and offers sailing, brown trout fishing, attractive lake walks and a restaurant. Other local attractions include Launceston and Tintagel Castles, Brent Tor, Lydford Gorge, Dingles Fairground Heritage Centre, Launceston Steam Railway, Jamaica Inn, the Eden Project and many National Trust locations including Lanhydrock and Cotehele. All are easily accessible from the site. For those who love shopping Tavistock and Holsworthy markets are also popular attractions.

What a place!

What a wonderful place! I have stayed at some excellent CL's but Poole Farm takes the biscuit! I was so surprised by Greg's kind offer to make me a cup of tea when I arrived in the pouring rain I said no, thank you! I've never stayed any site, large or small where tea has been offered on arrival! He took time to show me the facilities, and brought me a welcome pack with a lovely hand written card from the family, and details of all the services they offer - newspapers, breakfasts, jam, preserves etc. The hut with the shower, toilet, information room and elsan closet was immaculate at all times, and the complimentary toiletries in there another bonus. As was the cream tea that Greg delivered the following afternoon! The gravel pitches are spacious, with plenty of grass round them, and having a water tap as well as electric to each pitch is great. Phone signal, tv reception, and free WiFi, Greg and Louise seem to have thought of everything. They even managed to arrange a few hours of dry weather for me each day so I could go for walks using the laminated maps so helpfully provided in the Hut! I really couldn't have asked for more. Very much looking forward to my next visit to Poole Farm. Thank you Greg and Louise!

Wonderful

Louise and her husband and Poole Farm are wonderful. The site is in fantastic condition both clean and smart. We have been on many CL's all over the country and believe it or not the cleanliness of the 'facilities' is mostly pretty poor. Poole Farm however was a real blessing on that point, Louise cleaned the facilities every day without fail. Top Marks from us.

Just perfect, 1st visit but not the last.

What a lovely welcome from Louise, showed us round the C.L.and how the "HUT" (shower, toilet,fridge, books and leaflets on the attractions in the area, even O.S maps to borrow along with lots of walking routes) also there were jams etc to purchase. As we set up we were brought a cup of coffee and cake. Then after we had relaxed a superb cream tea was delivered. In the 43 years I have been vanning I have never had a welcome like that. I had a problem connecting the water supply to my aquaroll, Greg provided the extension hose and even made sure it all worked ok. the site is excellent, hardstandings with plenty of grass and all the recycling you possibly want. We had croissants on several days and I had breakfasts all delivered and cooked by Louise, they were superb value and extremely filling.Several days, cakes or biscuits were delivered to the van by Harvey and even the dog Rufus gives you a warm welcome. The whole family deserve to win more awards for the effort they put in, needless to say we have booked for 2019 Thank you once again for a wonderful holiday on your lovely C.L.

Lovely location.

As always an immaculate site,Greg and Louise work so hard to keep the site in tip top condition.Very friendly welcome is very warm,and Louise bake a great cream tea.Site is down a narrow lane,but we have a large caravan,and have not had any problem.Loads to do in the surrounding area,or just sit and enjoy the peace,and nature that surrounds the site.
