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
Just returned home after a 3 night stay on this wonderful site. I only wish it could have been longer! The directions and information that had been emailed to us when we booked were excellent. The site itself is beautifully kept, with large pitches, all with EHU and a picnic table each. There are plenty of water points and the elsan point and grey waste disposal kept immaculately clean. The grass was well cut and the sound of the babbling brook which runs along one side was delightful. Not long after arrival ,the friendly and welcoming owner Alastair ,came over to see if we were ok. We have a dog and he encouraged us to let him run in the secure paddock. It is very well situated for many attractions and places in Cornwall. We would recommend Healys Cider and Gweek Seal Sanctuary in particular. One, if not the best CL we have stayed on. Thank you.

Amazing, Best Ever CL

Badgers Folly
This site is fantastic-so fantastic, that I’ve just returned from staying there and have already booked to go again next year. If you want peace and tranquility, amongst wild flowers, set against a bubbling stream this is for you l. It is beautifully maintained-chemical waste point and bins are spotless. Grass is kept short and tidy. Water point is to hand and clean and tidy. The owners are amazing. All communications are prompt and friendly before visiting and when you do visit, they come and say hello and nothing is too much bother. Badgers Folky is fantastically situated for visiting both north and south coasts and there is so much to see and do. I can’t wait to return (in fact I’m wondering if I can squeeze in another visit this year)! Can’t rate it high enough!

Excellent site highly recommend

Badgers Folly
We have just come come back from a week's stay at this wonderful site with our dog. The pitches are large with your own picnic table. Good water pressure, dog walking facilities on site and level ground. Easy to enter and leave and you can hear the lovely stream behind, which you can sit by if you wish. Alistair and Sarah are very welcoming and helpful with information, if you need it! Loads to do around the area. We went cycling and did beach visits. Cafe, shops and pubs all nearby. The site is very central for days out too. This a wonderful CL site and we will be back! Joe and Sharon 20.05.2023

We stayed here 14-23 June. A really lovely, well-kept CL with enormous pitches, and each with a picnic bench. The additional garden area by the stream, with hammock and seating, is an oasis of calm! All facilities were very clean and well kept. A gem of a place! We'll be back!

Really great site. Clean, tidy and spacious. Owners relaxed and welcoming. Bissoe trail easily accessible. Recommend a visit to Pete's Pasties in the village.
