A Cornish Idyll

Just spent a delightful two weeks in what we consider to be the best CL we have stayed in during our almost 20 years of Club membership. Quite apart from the exceptionally warm welcome by hosts Nick and Barbara Humby, the site they have painstakingly created over 32 years is stunning. Set in a delightful, sloping orchard, there are five level terraces, easily accessible, each with a picnic table ( and a dedicated bin! ) overlooking a charming little valley at the head of Penpol Creek, itself full of Cornish history and intrigue. If you are looking for peace and quiet, plenty of walking nearby, with boundless beach and sea-faring opportunities in a holiday area catering for all interests, don't hesitate. We are delighted to have found it. By owners' choice, no toilet block but all the other CL facilities you will require are excellent and convenient. If you're like us, you won't want to leave!

Jiffy the motorhome

What an absolutely beautiful site. We stayed for three nights, but wish it had been more. So much to see and do. The owner told us about all the walks and cycle paths in the area. The views over the bay are stunning. Truro has a few Park and Rides with excellent employees. Truro is well worth a visit. There are boat trips to Falmouth, river walks and loads of quirky shops. We will definitely use this site again.

Beautiful site and area

Stayed here in June. Easy to find and close to major route. However the last bit of the journey is not for nervous 'towers'. Entrance to the site is via a sharp right turn over a narrow bridge and immediate right turn up the drive. We have an 8m van and managed it with a bit of manoeuvring. Once inside a motor mover is essential if you have a long and heavy caravan. BUT its absolutely worth the effort. The site is grass with some stone chipping tracks, tiered and with electric and dustbin for each pitch. Not really a site if you have a walking disability. There are fruit trees a-plenty providing shade and beauty. Just down the road is a footpath alongside the creek (or Pill as we call it in Wales). Picturesque or what? Plenty of pubs serving good pub fare in striking distance. National Trust and other gardens within a few miles. What a joy. Must have been stunning when Mrs Humby was into gardening. Even now the Gunnera and roses are fab. Definitely worth a visit.

Very lovely CL

We spent 2 nights here in June on our 'Tour de Kernow'! Nick gave us a very warm welcome, managed to get our 7.6m motorhome through the entrance without too much bother! What a lovely little spot this is, the owners have indeed worked very hard to develop this corner of their garden, topped off with a lovely view of their well tended fruit & veg plot. Nick even gave us some of their hens freshly laid eggs, what a delight! The site is right next to one of the many creeks in this area, a 10min bike ride to The Quay Inn was lovely (and flat!) So peaceful and tranquil, this is a delightful little CL and would highly recommend , thank you Nick.

Many Happy Holidays

We have been coming here for many years and that must be a vindication of how high we rate this location. Penpol Farmhouse campsite is only a very short distance away from Restroguet Creek’s tidal water’s edge. The owners, Nick and Barbara Humby, are friendly conscientious people who do everything possible to ensure the stay is a pleasant one. Nick has worked hard to develop the lightly sloping grassy orchard with apple and other fruit trees into an attractive spacious area that is so much nicer than being in the usual CL farm field. The levelled terraced pitches are well set apart and only require minimal further levelling; all have electric hook-up and a wooden picnic bench table. The grass around the pitches is well maintained and importantly, he collects the grass cuttings too! It has not been a working farm for many years and is typically a very quiet peaceful safe site. We have a Golden Retriever and there’s plenty of good nearby walks including a level walk of about 2 miles along the old tin/ copper tramway than runs beside the creek to Devoran and the dog friendly Quay Inn pub. The lovely city of Truro is only 4 miles away, it is just a few miles to Trelissick House (National Trust), and the King Harry Ferry that crosses the river for visiting places such as St Mawes and the Roseland peninsular.... Mylor harbour, the famous waterside “Pandora Inn” and Falmouth are all within easy reach of this well located site.
