Warmest of welcomes.

Have been here for several months during lockdown as I am a full-time van dweller and needed a safe spot. I was made very welcome by Colin and May. I am so grateful to have found this little haven of tranquility during these uncertain times and to have the honour of the owners friendship. The site is beautifully maintained and has a lovely 5 acre woodland dog walk within the site. I have enjoyed catching glimpses of deer, foxes and rabbits in addition to many a pleasant hour spent bird watching. It's been the lovely warm welcome I received that really sets it apart though. Colin and May are wonderful people who have made my lockdown so much easier. I couldn't have hoped for a kinder, funnier social bubble.

Our go to C L

This C L has all we need . It is in the middle of everywhere, 10 miles or so from both the North and South Coast of Cornwall. it is kept very tidy and clean and great care has been taken to be Covid secure. Colin and May are lovely hosts and put themselves out to make sure you are happy. The dog walk is great and handy. Access to the site is straight forward.

Loved it, loved it, loved it!!

We used this site as we were touring in the area. Directions from the book were perfect. Colin met us on his scooter and we had the choice of 2 pitches. Gave us perfect advice on how to position our caravan as the ground had been wet and we stayed there for 4 nights. Grass is kept immaculate no loose cuttings. No problems what so ever. You are given a pack with loads of information about Cornwall and surrounding area, a map of the site and the recycling information which worked to perfection. Colin was very helpful with any questions you had of the area. You would see him every morning taking his dog for a walk and would make sure everything was ok. The dog walk is great. Ours loved the woods and being allowed to be free. Would really recommend and our only wish is that it was nearer to us so we could use it more often. Many thanks Colin and May for a wonderful stay, From the young ones!!

First visit to frenton farm

On arrival we were greeted with a true warm cornish welcome by site owners Colin and May. We were given information about the somewhat confusing recycling system. As caravanners who enjoy the countryside we always welcome advice about recycling in the many areas we visit. Colin told us about his pet German Shephard Odin who often joined him on his checks of the site. Odin would come to say hello wagging his tail enthusiastically. Unfortunately our Chihuahua Buzz was not so friendly to Odin and would bark at him through the door flyscreen. Odin did make us laugh as he stood on the other side with his head cocked to one side frowning at this cheeky Chihuahua. Luckily for us Odin proved himself to be a good host. Colin and May have an open invite for a cuppa and a chat....which we took up on several occassions. Although it frequently rained during our visit we found the ground to be well drained. The site itself is well kept and very clean. We saw Colin and Odin doing their rounds on a daily basis. The site is central to other beautiful areas of Cornwall that we love to visit and the information pack that was handed to us on arrival was helpful as it had free offers included. Colin was very helpful and knowledgeable. During our conversations we covered a wide variety of subjects from foreign holidays to ham radio. We will certainly use this site when we visit part of Cornwall again. We would have loved to have brought Odin home with us but he's too well loved by Colin and May.......and we are sure he is by other visitors to the site. Bye Odin see you soon and thank you to your friendly humans.

A truly wonderful place to stay!

Frenton Farm CL is probably the best CL we have stayed at, and will certainly be the one we use every time we come and stay in Cornwall! From the beautiful idilic location with dogs walks and perfectly mown green grass and easy to access water/elsan facilities we really couldn't as for much more. And thats not even mentioning the lovely owners Colin and May and their wonderful dog. When arriving on site we were greeted by Colin, who was extremely friendly and helpful with showing us to our pitch and giving us all the information. After we had set up we went up to the house and couldn't have asked for a warmer welcome after meeting the lovely May and Odin their friendly German Shepard. I think our dogs loved the CL just as much as we did, we would often bump into Colin and Odin on the dogs walks and our dogs would run about and play together. It really was a pleasure to stay and meet Colin, May and Odin! It is CL's like this that make joining the caravan and motorhome club really worth it! We couldn't recommend this CL enough and will certainly be returning!
