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.

Just Perfect

We arrived to the warmest of welcomes, we were shown around the site and given a cup of tea and biscuit while we set up. We left feeling like part of the family. We were already booked for 2019 but a cancellation came up and we managed to visit in 2018. 'Just perfect' would be enough to summarise the experience we had. Though I will expand a little, Louise, Greg, Harvey and Rufus are the perfect hosts. The pitches are large hardstandings but also with a great amount of grass to both sides, front and rear of your pitch giving you the best of both worlds, hard standing incase the weather turns and lots of grass for relaxing and enjoying the peace and quiet of the site and are immaculately kept. You can park your car and caravan as you like (within reason of course, but no strict rules as on the standard larger sites). The communal fridge in the ‘Hut’ is a great little extra fridge space for all. The ‘Hut’ has lots of helpful files with local walks, dog friendly places to visit, books to borrow, homemade jams and chutneys to purchase and of course lots of info leaflets of the area too. Plus recycling bins, grey waste, chemical waste, EHU and water to each pitch and TV signal was great too. We enjoyed a tasty Full English breakfast delivered to our awning and of course homemade scones and chocolate cake were generously offered to us too. This was our first CL experience and I’m sure we have been thoroughly spoilt, other CL’s now have a lot to live up to, the wifi was an added bonus as we do need to keep up with work but we also had a 4G signal and so could set up a hot spot too. If you are after peace, quiet, rural location (but in easy reach of many great ports and places to visit) this is the place for you. I don’t think anyone could find fault here. We were planning our next visit whilst we were still here, we were lucky enough to have glorious weather, a little too glorious for me and our dog to be honest and so we have many walks and more places to explore yet which we just couldn’t do due to the heat. Book soon, you wont regret it and you will have to return.

Fantastic CL

My husband and I stayed here from 19th April for four nights and can’t praise this outstanding CL highly enough.The pitches are roomy, with hardstanding, EHU, independant water supply and wifi. The ‘shed’ is like an en suite, such a bonus. The site is kept spotlessly clean. When we arrived Greg brought us a cup of tea and a kit kat and once we were settled Louise brought us a delicious cream tea. The cooked breakfast that we had delivered to our motorhome was fantastic. On the day we left Louise gave us a chocolate cake for our journey which was as delicious as her cream tea. Louise also makes home made jam which you can purchase which I can recommend. The site is on the border of Devon and Cornwall making it easy to visit many beautiful places. Louise and her husband are extremely helpful and have an outstanding CL. We will certainly be back next time we visit the area even although it is a 500 mile journey from our home in a Scotland.

Poole farm stay

My wife and i stayed here for a long weekend starting May the fourth be with you. On arrival we were greeted by Louise with a cup of tea and kit kats. After setting up Louise then brought over a delicious afternnon tea of scones cream and jam. We were lucky with the weather with glorious sunshine throughout, the site has wonderful countryside views with its own dog excercise ares with a stream running through it. The hut with the shower room and toilet was immaculate. Louise brought us homemade chocolate cake that was delicious as well as ice creams during the hot weather. Greig and Louise are perfect hosts and go out of their way to make your stay a great one. We are fairly new to caravanning but this is the best park weve stayed at and will definitely be returning. By the way, have the cooked breakfast, its honestly the best. Charlie and Toni
