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 cottages please ask for information.

Holiday 2022

Green Pig Farm
What can we say, 10 days of mostly lovely weather with only one afternoon of heavy rain. As others have said, the pictures say it all as the views from your outfit are to die for. Shopping in Penzance is ok with Tesco, Sainsbury's and Morrisons all having large superstores. The town of Penzance is worth a stroll if you like traditional shops especially, bakers of which there are a lot. Whilst staying, we took the helicopter to Tresco but if you intend going, take my advice and book early as bookings go very quickly (only 12 seats on each flight). Currently (June 2022) the price to park all day at the heliport is £7 in a secure compound. The site is perfect for those who wish to check out where Poldark was filmed, as a lot of the locations are within easy reach. For bathing, Penzance has an open air lido or of course there are loads of beaches within a short distance. Do not try and park in St Ives. Either drive to St Erth Park and take the train, or catch the bus from outside of the Farm. Chatting to others on the CL, it seems as if they return very frequently. Friendly owners who do not intrude but are there if you need advice. You will need levelling blocks and a storm strap if using an awning in high winds as the site is a bit exposed but I'll take that for the views alone.

Astounding place

Green Pig Farm
Just look at those photos - what you see is what you get! We had a very warm welcome - with ots of advice - as though we were the only people who mattered. The best advice was to take the bus, which is hourly in both directions - to Penzance and to St Ives, just a few minutes for each journey. Don't even think about taking your outfit into St Ives! Amenities (no toilet block) are fine, but don't forget levelling blocks for most positions on the site. Great five days exploring West Penwith!

Very special place

Green Pig Farm
We were here for just over two weeks in mid September. The site and services are immaculate and the views are awesome. We were so glad to be back after missing our 2020 holiday here. The weather was mostly good considering the time of year but whatever the weather it is a great place to be. As usual, the warm and friendly welcome is a lovely start to the holiday. Thank you all at Green Pig Farm, look forward to visiting again,

Fantastic CL

Green Pig Farm
Thank you for such a warm welcome to your lovely CL. We thoroughly enjoyed our week with you and were even blessed with good weather! The site is first rate and the view unbeatable. Very well situated for visiting St Ives and Penzance, St Michael's Mount and the Minack at Porthcurnow. Would have no hesitation in booking again if we return to the area. Thoroughly recommended.
