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.

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.

Just returned from a weeks stay at Poole Farm CL. We have been to many CL’s and this has to be the best! Louise and Greg are excellent hosts, nothing is too much trouble. Louise even drove out to guide us to the site, when we foolishly didn’t follow their directions. Large pitches in a quiet and beautiful setting. Plenty of space to relax after a day out visiting one of the many interesting places within easy reach. We enjoyed going to Launceston Castle, Looe, Polperro, Widemouth Bay, Boscastle, Cotehele and Lanhydrock National Trust. Can thoroughly recommend the cooked breakfasts and pastries delivered to the caravan. What a treat! Many thanks for a fabulous stay. We will return.

It’s as good as you’ve heard!

We’ve heard a lot about this site over the years and have been meaning to stay but have never been organised enough to book early. We were very lucky indeed however, to be the first to see a last minute cancellation for the August bank holiday weekend and we booked it up straight away. The site is as described by the many positive reviews; a warm welcome, helpful owners, beautiful location, large immaculate pitches etc. It really can’t be faulted. What made it special for us was our beautiful large pitch, the tranquility, the country lane walks from the door and the extra touches like the homemade cakes, delivered without asking, non gratis. We took full advantage of the very tasty cooked breakfast delivered to our van - now that was a real treat. We’ve never had that before and we had croissants delivered on another morning too. We were pleased that our dog was very happy there. He enjoyed the on site dog walk, the country lanes nearby and further afield to Witherdon Woods, Black Rock beach and Roadford Lake. It was nice for him to have a grassy area on our pitch too. He was even given a welcome present on arrival. We only live 35 minutes away but this truly felt like we were on holiday and we are now going to book for next year. Thank you Greg, Louise, Harvey and Rufus See you soon xx
