Frenton Farm
23 January 2022. I have just spent the week at Frenton Farm. The site is now run by the son and daughter-in-law of the owners mentioned in other reviews and both were friendly and welcoming in true Cornish fashion. I am a dog owner and despite reading the reviews about the owners’ rescued German Shepherd dog attacking a member’s dog when visiting, I decided to give the site a go as it is one of only a few sites which is open all year round. I am pleased to inform and reassure everyone that, whilst the dog is still there, the owners have taken measures to ensure that such an event should not recur; including creating a confined area for it to be in at the owner’s house and working with professionals to rehabilitate the dog. A couple of things to note when visiting: There are no on-site shower or toilet facilities and the approach to the site from the main road needs to be negotiated with care for owners of larger/twin axle caravans. Overall the site peaceful, well maintained and perfect for relaxing on-site or (being situated pretty much in the middle of Cornwall) travelling around the county. I concur with the many comments which reflect that this is a gem of a site. I will be returning.

Great Site

Frenton Farm
We stayed here for four nights in our Motorhome in September. This site is very well kept with two level hard standing pitches for Motorhomes. Excellent and well organised recycling facilities. The grass is kept mown and the clippings collected. There is another five pitch CL adjoining. They are separate to one another. There is a dog walk through woodland for dog owners. The Wi-Fi is excellent and works well, especially if you’re researching places of interest. The site is on a bus route, but being a rural area, services are limited, so we didn’t use them. A good tip for Motorhome owners is the fishing village of Mevagissey which isn’t far away and has Motorhome parking in the Willow Car Park, which is only five minutes walk from the centre of the village and harbour. We enjoyed our stay.

Would recommend this site

Frenton Farm
This is first time we have been to this site and will be returning. Colin welcomed us to our pitch. The site is ideal for exploring Cornwall. Colin comes round every day with his dog to have a check that everything is ok. it is kept very neat tidy. Getting to places of interest is very easy. The only thing would like to point out that the left hand side CL if you have a twin axle Lunar you will not get out the bottom gate as the van is lower than most vans. We have a BMW and Lunar twin and got stuck its OK for every other van. thank you both for an enjoyable stay. Geoff & Margaret

We don't like giving 5 stars but Colin Deserves them

Frenton Farm
We hate giving any CL 5 stars as it means we may not be able to visit again in the future as it will possibly be FULL!!! Colin and May's CL is a true JEM. It is kept immaculately and he has extra pitches marked whch are rotated to keep the grass in perfect codition. In all our CL visits this is the first where the owner had provided at least fifteen meters of water hose 'COMPLETE' with an adapter to fill a motorhome water tank!!! Colin is a fantastic gentleman with a wonderful outlook on life. We spent a lovely five days, mainly relaxing but there were many places to see locally of interest. Thank you again Jane & Martin

Cornish Gem

Frenton Farm
Found directions easy to follow and got to entrance okay. Driveway gets a bit tight nearer the actual site and occasionally finding vehicles parked near playing field along the beginning of it. Level grass field and made welcome, shown where things were, you get your own dustbin! Close to Eden Project and Heligan Gardens. Lots of other places within a reasonable distance. Would we go back? Definitely if going to this part of Cornwall.
