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. 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.

Still Perfection

Our second visit to Poole Farm, Greg,Louise,Harvey and not forgetting Rufus(a very friendly Springer Spaniel) gave us the same lovely warm greeting on our arrival for a 2 week stay in September. The C.L. and Hut with well kept recycling area, which was emptied regularly was immaculate, as we sited the van, a very welcome cup of coffee arrived. Later an excellent cream tea was delivered by Greg, a tasty treat. Louise did a load of washing for us, fantastic service. We had the english breakfast twice and the croissants on other mornings. All delivered to the caravan at the time we wanted. What a start to a day, superb value and thoroughly enjoyed. The treats Louise baked and the ice creams Harvey brought round were just some of the extra efforts that made you feel more than welcome. We cannot imagine why the site did not win CL of the year but they are surely destined to win several more awards in years to come. Thanks to all of you for another lovely stay, we would love to return. David & Jean

A superb site in every respect

Greg and Louise each have 'proper jobs' but most of their time seems to be spent on looking after the visitors to this most attractive CL. We were lucky to secure a five night booking as this CL is fully booked for much of the year with many people returning again and again. The whole site is beautifully presented, with gravel hardstandings and water points adjacent to each pitch. Sadly my water hose was too short but Greg came to the rescue as he was able to sell me an extension hose from his mini 'caravan spares shop'. Panic over. We did not make use of the opportunity to have full English breakfasts delivered to the door (which we now regret) but were able to savour the freshly baked ginger cake presented by Louise. The welcome booklet and the availability of local information in 'The Hut' was appreciated. The location of this site gave us the opportunity to explore this most interesting area which forms the Devon/Cornwall boundary. The narrow lanes can be a driver's challenge but one soon learns how to make use of passing places. It's just a shame that the site is around 320 miles from home - but I'm sure we'll make the journey again sometime.

Perfection

Not very often am I inclined to write comments/reviews but this CL is magnificent. We have caravanned for a number of years and always stayed on Club sites - this was our first CL stay - happened upon it whilst looking for site near to where a course I was attending. Everything was first class - booking, arrival, welcome etc etc. Greg helped my husband set up whilst Louise came up trumps with coffee. Site was immaculate and quiet and the extras - home made cakes delivered to caravan, delicious cream tea, hot tasty breakfasts ‘made with love’ delivered to caravan and home made jams and chutneys available to buy. So many little things going the extra mile eg radio in the shower hut. Almost afraid to praise too highly since the chances of getting in next time will be decreased but this CL is fully worthy of all the praise I can give it - in the comment book in the information area I wrote that words failed me so I could only use one “PERFECTION”

A Fantastic Site Run By Wonderful hosts

My first time out for more than 30 years & what a wonderful place to start.First class facilities & A great site, readily accessible if you follow instruction & a very warm welcome. Greg was so helpful in reminding me of all the things I had forgotten which made everything so much better. 11 out of ten as hosts[lol] & the arrival of a beautiful cream tea by Louise made it perfect.Thanks for everything,see you in May 2020

Best Ever

We have just come back from a 12 night stay on this wonderful CL, first time we have visited. This is the best CL we have stayed on in all our 26years of caravaning. Louise,Greg and Harvey go the extra mile. It’s a beautiful kept site, shower/toilet ‘hut’ immaculate at all times, being spoilt with hot drinks and cake on arrival, ice creams and homemade treats through the stay, paper delivery and more. We were made to feel part of the family including Rufus the springer spaniel. Everything we might of needed was throught of, even a great bar b q with the family and the other caravaners. So much so we have booked for next year. Well done Louse, Greg and Harvey we didn’t want to leave ‘Heaven’
