Why stay here ...

Badgers Folly is a small, family-run, site. With five large pitches available, each with their own electric hook up, visitors are in for a treat. Nestled in a World Heritage site, next to a bubbling stream, this idyllic site is both quiet and tranquil filled with birdsong and wildlife. Why not kick back and relax in our shady glade, where the hammock resides amongst the silver birch trees next to the stream.

Each pitch is spacious, has an electric hook up and a picnic bench. There are also several drinking water taps around the site as well as dedicated WiFi for guests. Our service area has a chemical toilet tipping point, grey water disposal point, hand wash, recycling and refuse point.

We have a fantastic shop just 1.5 miles up the road that can cater for all of your needs, selling fresh bread, local meat, off licence etc as well as an Organic Farm shop just up the road. The Coast to Coast Devoran to Portreath cycle trail passes just 1/4 a mile down the road from us where there is also a cycle hire facility & cafe. A mile in the other direction you will find Perranwell Station offering free parking, where you will be able to jump onto the Maritime Branch Line Service to both the Cathedral city of Truro (8 minutes travel) or the Harbour town of Falmouth (12 minutes travel).

There are many, many local walk and footpaths to explore directly from our gate. If you're looking for a local meal or drink, then there are several options, including the Royal Oak in Perranwell Station, The Old Quay in Devoran and The Cornish Arms in Frogpool (1/2 hour walk).

Our closest beach is Loe Beach (5 miles) where you can have a bite to eat at the beach cafe or hire Kayaks and Paddle Boards (discounts available to guests). Nearby there is also the truly beautiful National Trust's Trellissick Gardens, the King Harry Ferry to the Roseland, The Eden Project and The Helford.

Pitch Perfect!!!!

Badgers Folly
Stayed at Badgers Folly for 5 nights for our Anniversary. Perfect site, what a little gem!!! Level and very large pitches, with your own picnic bench!!(bonus). Large enclosed dog exercise paddock, which our girls enjoyed. Easy access to recycling and waste disposal. All in all well laid out. Lots of amazing walks from site including a beautiful walk in the Bissoe Valley nature reserve. The owners, Alastair and Sarah were very friendly and welcoming, and knowledgeable of the surrounding area. We would definitely recommend this site, it is a hidden gem and perfect for chilling out and recharging your batteries. Absolutely perfect. We will definitely be returning. Trish & David, Dory & Enid. Xx🐾xX Thanks Alastair and Sarah xx

Highly rated

Badgers Folly
The owners sent us an email with our pitch number and a list of local amenities. Communication throughout was very good. They are very welcoming and the site is immaculate. They have even placed new picnic tables on each pitch. The stream is behind us over a little stone wall and is lovely to listen to. There is plenty of dog walking routes off site and the ablution points are clean and all new. The owners deserve the very best in life as they have put so much effort into the cl and continue to do so. The site sits in a little valley which looks out onto steep escarpments in places however the journey to the site was easy and well described in the welcoming email. What gem of a site! Thank-you, A.

Lovely well kept site

Badgers Folly
This CL is very well kept with spacious level emplacements on grass that is beautifully managed. Sarah and Alastair are very welcoming hosts and very helpful. In terms of location, it’s perfect tor accessing both the north and south coasts, but you do need a car. The cycle trail that is accessed nearby between Portreath and Devoran was a great day out on our bikes. Eight miles to Portreath on generally flat tracks. A swim in the sea before retuning to the tranquility of the lovely site. We will return. Highly recommended.

A Cornish Gem

Badgers Folly
We have just returned from a short break at Badgers Folly. The CL has only been opened for a couple of weeks but it is very easy to see immediately all the hard work the owners have put into the site. Each pitch has a picnic table, the grass is short and very well kept. The pitches are spacious and offer a good measure of privacy. It was extremely hot during our stay, but there was a separate area through the gate (with a hammock), which offered a good deal of shade if required. The WiFi works extremely well, and the TV signal was very good, we didn't even have to raise our aerial up!. Unfortunately we did not have a good phone signal, but our neighbours on a different network to us had a good signal. It was perfect for our two dogs, who had space to run in the adjacent field. We would like to wish Alastair and Sarah every success for the future, and we will most definitely return. Mel & Joy

Badgers Folly, Bissoe.

We have just returned after staying for a few days at Badgers Folly. We feel vary privileged to have been Alastair and Sarah’s first customers in their new venture. We have thoroughly enjoyed staying on this beautiful well presented and peaceful site offering excellent facilities for those who do not require a W.C. and showers. It has proved to be an excellent location for us visiting both North and South coasts. The local area has offered us some lovely walks with fantastic wild life. We look forward to returning to this site again soon. We wish Alastair and Sarah who have been most helpful, well in this new CL site. Ann & David, Hampshire. Motorhome.
