Why stay here ...

Green Pig Farm is a small family enterprise and is ideally located midway between the stunning sea side resort of St. Ives and the market town of Penzance. Both have an abundance of entertainment, galleries, shops, restaurants and pubs.

The location of Green Pig Farm gives you great access to all West Cornwall has to offer, from the Lands' End peninsular and Sennon Cove to the breath taking Minack theatre at Porthcurnoe. Penzance being the gate way to the Scillies and a good starting point for spectacular cliff top walks. Other local attractions include coarse fishing, boat trips and glorious beaches.

The site overlooks Mounts bay and St Michael's Mount with distant views towards the Lizard peninsular and is laid to lawn on gently sloping pitches all with electric hook ups, and the usual water, grey water and chemical disposal facilities are available on site.

A local bus runs past the site to both St. Ives and Penzance, this is a limited service but enables you to leave the car behind.

Green pig farm also has its own holiday barns and Tea room (seasonal) with garden offering Cornish cream teas, sandwiches, cakes and snacks all overlooking the stunning Mounts Bay.

There is a Farm shop across the road from the site selling a variety of fresh produce.

Great site

We recently returned from holiday on this excellent site. It is maintained to the highest standards and the family who run it are lovely people. The tea room and garden serves top notch cream teas and cakes, the garden having a similar view to the cl site. We had a problem with a leaking tap and Neil gave us directions to a dealer where we replaced it. Thank you for another holiday with great memories, Chris and Ian

All you could want and more from a CL

There have been many positive reviews about this great CL and probably mine is unnecessary but I wanted to thank the owner for the time and effort he puts in to make it such a great place for a holiday. We only stayed for 3 nights as he was fully booked so if you are considering a visit make sure you book well in advance. We have probably maxed out on this part of Cornwall but if we visit the area again this will the first choice of site on our list.

A little gem

What a lovely little site. Exactly what we wanted - only five vans and stunning views. The site is beautifully maintained, the grass is kept short and there is a recycling point as well as general rubbish. Neil is lovely and nothing is too much trouble, The only downside is the road noise, but, as others have said, it goes quiet at night and wouldn’t stop us going back. Sadly, the tea rooms weren’t open whilst we were there and we’d been so looking forward to the best cream tea in Cornwall! Ideally located, St Ives is 7 minutes away, Penzance the same and everywhere else is easily accessed. St Michael’s Mount, the view from the campsite, is a must visit. The castle is lovely and the gardens are beautiful. Thank you Neil. Hope to see you again before too long for that cream tea!

Great welcome and a stunning view

We stayed here with our dog over the Bank Holiday weekend and were given a great welcome by Neil, who helped us out with chocks as we weren't quite prepared for the slope (it being only our second venture out since returning to caravanning after a long break). The site has a panoramic view of Mounts Bay, with St Michael's Mount taking centre stage. The well kept field overlooks its own dog walking field which has a mown path around the edge so that you can walk your pooch easily. We didn't go but gather that there is an off-road walk to the local village pub about a mile down the hill from the site. We need to go back to do that! From here you can easily access the local area, including St Ives, Gwithian, Penzance, Lands End and that part of the coast. The site is beautifully kept and has a tea room open in the summer (we need to go back!) You will probably hear some road noise from the road behind the site but we were pitched right against that hedge so further down the site might reduce this. It was very quiet at night and the skies are dark too, great for star-gazers.
