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

Very Charming Site

Penpol Farmhouse
Firstly I must say the photograph does not do this site justice. We have visited many CL sites and this one is up there amongst the best we have seen. Getting to the site is straight forward with a very tight turn into the site. Perfectly manageable, our caravan is 7m. You are greeted with a fabulous site on a slope but all of the pitches are level. The site has quite a few small apple trees and a fruit garden in the middle all adding to the attraction. Bird watching was fascinating, seeing some birds that I have not seen for years. The owners are very helpful, especially getting out which I will come back to. We spent 2 weeks here and there were plenty of places to visit. We took our cycles but as casual cyclists found the hills too much. The Old Tram Road is about 1 1/2 miles long and flat with a nice pub at the end that serves the normal pub food. Getting off the site would be tricky but the owner gives a comprehensive instruction on how to approach the exit. Follow his instruction and you will get out first time. Well done to Mr & Mrs Humby on a great site.

Lovely peaceful site

Penpol Farmhouse
This is a great site, very peaceful and in a great location for the Coast to Coast cycle track, also great for kayaks, SuP from the creek to the Fal estuary. We have been here twice now, the owner is very friendly, greets you when you arrive and waves you off when you leave. The site is very level, great for motorhomes, there is also a 40 foot water hose so no need to move once sited, we will be retuning again.

A Cornish Idyll

Penpol Farmhouse
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!
