Why stay here ...

Hendrifton Farm is located about a quarter of a mile along the no-through road that leads to Siblyback Lake, about 3 miles from Liskeard and on the edge of Bodmin Moor (With its internationally recognised Dark Skies). You will receive a warm welcome from David and Suzanne, and, if you like dogs, then Bob and Reka will be pleased to meet you too!

We offer a relaxing, peaceful site, we're on hand if you need us and we love to stop and chat! We grow our own fruit and vegetables and we share our produce with our guests. Suzanne makes scones, served with strawberry jam and clotted cream for guests staying with us for 10 nights or more and for all returning guests.

We provide an information folder with details of local walks, shops and supermarkets, places to eat, take-aways and local attractions.

A public footpath runs alongside a small stream at the edge of the meadow which adjoins the CL. There are lovely walks to Golitha Falls (where there are public toilets and Inkie's Barbecue Smokehouse Cafe, which is open all year, closed Mon/Tues), to Siblyback Lake (where there are public toilets and Olive and Co Cafe which is open all year), and towards Bodmin Moor and the village of Common Moor and Minions (with Post Office and tea rooms). The bus towards Callington and Liskeard stops close to the top of the lane and buses run hourly or 2 hourly, Monday to Saturday.

Just 4 miles to the A38 and 8 miles to the A30, Hendrifton Farm offers a great location for exploring the whole of Cornwall; 30 minutes drive to Cornwall's south coast, under an hour to the North and West Coasts, 40 minutes to Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan and 25 minutes to Lanhydrock.

You are welcome to phone or email us. You can also find Hendrifton Farm on Facebook or take a look at our Website.

Exceptional Welcome from Owners

Hendrifton Farm
We arrived at the site and received the warmest welcome we have ever received at any campsite! The Owners, Suzanne & David went out of their way to accommodate us on their lovely site, which has pleasant countryside views and is only a short walk to local beauty spots of Siblyback Reservoir and Golitha Falls. Historic structures can also be seen close by, including the only surviving example of a fragment of a 9th Century stone cross. Suzanne & David’s recommendation of Dinner, delivered to us from Tapenades in Liskeard, was amazing, as were all the other suggested local eateries, which we were lucky enough to sample! Suzanne’s Sourdough was delicious, as was her delightful Cream Tea and should definitely not be missed! Do check out what’s on at Sterts Open Air Theatre nearby, as it is another wonderful local find! We will definitely return to this site and thank our hosts very much for a wonderful holiday.

Perfectly Peaceful

Hendrifton Farm
This was a last minute booking for us over the Easter weekend on route from Devon to our home in West Cornwall. We have stayed in East Cornwall before but not on this site, we spotted it when we went to Sibleyback Lake on a previous visit to the area but my husband had been reluctant to visit due to the access route to the site but it turned out to be not as bad as he thought. We soon discovered it was more than worth the uncertainty because this site is a little piece of heaven, we felt so relaxed we didn’t leave the site during our 3 day stay. We were met but David & Suzanne who gave us a choice of 2 pitches, both very spacious with beautiful countryside views & the amount of space on the site means you can face your caravan whichever way you wish. The facilities are basic but very clean, with separate ladies & gents toilet & one unisex shower, we use our own shower so I can’t comment on that. There is a lovely secure field to exercise your dog off lead & you can walk to Sibleyback Lake or Golitha Falls from the site, 2 fantastic places to take your 4 legged family. There is a small farm shop in St Cleer the nearby village & 2 supermarkets in nearby Liskeard. We will definitely be returning to this little gem in the country.

Great little site.

Hendrifton Farm
This was our first visit to David and Suzanne lovely c.l.We live in west Cornwall but don't really visit the area of bodmin area much,so it was nice to spend our Easter break somewhere different.We were given a warm welcome,and David and Suzanne are very informative and can offer a wealth of information on places to visit,dog walks etc.They also provide a very interesting folder which each pitch can borrow with all you need to know regarding the site,place to eat walk etc. The site sits in beautiful countryside,you will hear all the sounds associated with it including the chickens and cockerel next door. All the facilities are close at hand are in good order.The approach roads are typical Cornish lanes,and the local seem to rush everywhere so care is needed. We very much enjoyed our stay and will visit again.

Our favourite CL

Hendrifton Farm
We love this site having been here twice this year and six times in total. David and Suzanne are wonderful hosts. The site is lovely with electric, toilet and shower. Fresh bread can be ordered. Local farm shop nearby. Great location for Bodmin, north and south coast. Wonderful view from sìte. Great run or walk around Siblyback reservoir from sìte. Already booked next year just in case it was full due to being so lovely. Access with caravan is fine. Best approach with caravan is from A38 rather than A30. Enjoy!

Singing in the rain !

Hendrifton Farm
This CL has to be in that top category ! Warmth of welcome and the very tranquil & picturesque location make it a very attractive place to be. On the southern rim of Bodmin Moor there's walking a plenty - with Siblyback close by with its 2km lakeshore path for walkers/cyclists/runners, the walk from Minions village to the Cheesewring granite tor, and the slightly precarious (rather wet/muddy during our stay) walk to Golitha Falls. Lots further afield, on the coast and inland in almost every direction, and local pubs & restaurants to explore too. All of this is detailed in an information pack when you arrive, courtesy of model hosts Suzanne & David Shepperson who will do all they can to make your stay enjoyable, being attentive without intruding. There's home made bread, and a farm shop within walking distance for fruit, veg, milk & eggs. In terms of the CL itself, final approach through St Cleer village does have some narrow points - but the traffic level is mostly very light, and access into the site is clearly marked. The pitching area is set by the electric sockets around the perimeter, some pitches being more level and some less so (we needed levelling blocks) but everyone has an unobstructed distance view. Grass was kept short, and really well drained (glad to report !). Facilities (2 loos and a hot shower) very clean and not heavily used during our stay. Fresh water tap located at the side of the loo block, and disposal point well laid out behind the loos. Recycling all clearly labelled near the site entrance. It is a very tranquil & unspoilt location ! We did have some sun during early July - but we also had quite a bit of rain, though the ground was very free draining, thankfully. A place to return to again ................ thanks to Suzanne and David !
