Peaceful stay in orchard stayed 21st September 2021 7nights

Penpol Farmhouse
Beautiful rustic surroundings, lots of wildlife and generous pitches. Greeted by owner Nick on arrival who explained location of services and pitches available. We were really.ly lucky to have seven days good weather thistime of year but torrential rain on day of departure fortunately site was draining well. Double check with owners length of unit as entrance is snug. We would return

Disappointing visit

Penpol Farmhouse
We were recommended this site by some friends who had stayed there several years ago. Access the site is tricky as it is down a steep Hill ( Harris’s Hill, ok to come down, but you need a big engine to get back up) the entrance is narrow and over a small bridge that then leads into the Camp site with a narrow entrance next to a stream, through two stone pillars. Large vans beware! We were then greeted by the owner who treated us as if we were newbies, even although we have been caravanning for over 30 years. We were put on the smallest pitch which had a slope on the right hand side down to an enclosed vegetable garden. There was only one Motorhome on the site at that moment and one that arrived shortly after us. We put up the awning which had two pods for our grandsons to sleep in ( age 10 and 8) and a storage tent. Our daughter and her husband and children arrived later that day. We discussed this and parking with the owner. Later the next day we were approached by the owner and his wife who were very unhappy with us erecting extra tents and not telling them. Also that two families were staying, which was not true as we are the grandparents and are one family, which we stated. Of course the only extra tent was a small storage tent, the pods are part of the awning. The reason given for the extent of their disapproval was the grass beneath the pods and tent would die. We had a breathable carpet in the awning, which was questioned disbelievingly, and we agreed to lift the pods as well as we could. By now my 8 year old grandson was distraught and had to be calmed down. There was some mumbling about charging extra for larger groups and that we hadn’t informed them. But we honestly couldn’t remember if we had or not, as we had never had to on any other five site we had stayed on. We did not feel welcome at all, and were berated for not doing the rubbish properly, although the system operated had not been explained to us. We left two days early, but paid for the full time booked. The site itself was very pleasant, in an orchard, the four other pitches being far larger and flatter then ours. There was a picnic table on each pitch and your own bin. However do ask about the rubbish disposal policy on site. Access is tricky, and we would suggest it is more suitable for smaller vans and motor homes and older couples.

One of our favourites

Penpol Farmhouse
We stayed there a week ago and already missing it. As others have said, the photograph does not do it justice. It is one of our favourite CLs. The welcome from Nick was charming and helpful. The walks nearby are beautiful. There are great beaches a short drive away and you can walk to a couple of pubs. The Old Quay Inn at Devoran does great mussels. Please take no notice of this very positive review as I want to be able to book the site again next year.

Lovely motorhome friendly site

Penpol Farmhouse
Just returned from a wonderful stay at Penpol Farmhouse CL. The owner offers a really warm welcome and a fond farewell. We were lucky enough to pick our own spot. There are lovely walks and sights to see especially the Old tram walk into the Point and Deveron. It is almost flat throughout and passes some wonderful scenery. The site is tastefully terraced with fairly level pitches, your own picnic bench, electric hook up and own bin. Another really nice detail was a 40m hose pipe to save the back and forth to the tap. We were amongst an orchard with lots of lovely old trees which was a bonus in the hot weather. This is definitely one of the top CL sites we have stayed at .The approach to the site road is typically Cornish but we have an 8.5m motorhome and there are passing places that we were able to use when required. As per previous reviews the pictures on the Club site does not do it justice
