Cornwall

Trevellan Farm Cottage
Looking for a CL in a good position for both coasts ,and the West ,this would be hard to beat. Jane and Garry were very welcoming and informative all the 13nights we were there.The weather in early September was fantastic ,so we visited lots of the sites and beaches.The pitches were spacious and in a sheltered position.We had the one looking up across the field and we needed levellers.We would definitely use this site again.

A little gem

Trevellan Farm Cottage
What a find, beautifully located site in the middle of Cornwall. We stayed last week in September so weather was very changeable. Jane met us on arrival and explained everything clearly then left us alone for the week to enjoy the peace and quiet. Yes there is road noise but not intrusive, in fact the rain made more noise. Would certainly return next time we are in Cornwall.

Cornwalls Little Gem

Trevellan Farm Cottage
This CL is a little Gem in the heart of Cornwall. The owners, Garry & Jane, are welcoming, not intrusive and very helpful when needed. The site is peaceful, clean and picturesque with no light pollution at night. The wildlife is plentiful and the surrounding grounds are well maintained and all pitches are perfect and a good size. Nothing is to much for the owners to help out with. We have caravanned for over 30 years and this is by far one of the best CL's we have sayed on. Garry..... the beer was good but one bottle was not enough.. cheers Graham & Karen

Secluded peace & beauty, yet at the Heart of Cornwall..

Trevellan Farm Cottage
Stayed here multiple times over many years ( last in Summer 2019), and cannot fault the CL, nor the owners, Jane & Garry:- All of Cornwall is accessible from here - situated close ( but not Too Close), to the best road in/out of Truro - on a C road off the B road; Study the map or speak to the Woods, as there’s an easy route with outfits, to avoid narrow roads, making access straightforward ( not always the case on Cornish lanes generally at height of season). The site is a relaxed but grand Cornish garden, with a massive lawned area, plus sheltered hardstandings with some shade, offering best of both choices. It’s a peaceful and tranquil setting, yet such amazing city, countryside and beach access. There’s footpath access direct from site onto Truro’s quiet lanes, to walk into the city, or to walk the dog [Always on a lead - this is sheep country, and Your nice dog, ( like every other), can worry livestock, and this threatens access for dog owners, both here, and everywhere in the British countryside - I’m a country vet, and dog owner, so please be assured that family pets present a savage threat to animals, then I’ll spare upsetting details of resultant cruelty]. There’s fabulous safe off- lead terrain within 20 minutes’ walk of the site, however!😊. As with most sites, a dog escaping your pitch without your noticing, is enough to threaten stock - I wouldn’t say this if it didn’t happen all too frequently around the country: It’s something that annoys me - it’s always the dog owner’s fault and responsibility. I love walking my dog in this area. Please pick up poo, as otherwise the next person will step in it. Basic rules, but not universally adopted everywhere. This is my opinion, not something the owners want to lecture visitors about - they’re friendly welcoming folk - but it needs saying, and heeding. Thank you😘! Don’t want to get timed out of this review now!! Jane is a local; Garry wasn’t born in Cornwall, so this makes them the best people to guide you, and they’re friendly, sociable souls, so you’re never lonely here, yet they will leave you in peace to enjoy your stay, also, if that’s your preference. There’s some super pitches on gravel, and EHU on the lawn, a clean hot shower and loo, waste points & bins. Lovely views across the garden and Cornish countryside. If I give 99/100, it’s because pitching at the top part of the lawn will wake you perhaps at 7 am Mon- Fri, as commuters inevitably drive to work, using the lane adjoining the top of site, though there’s a big double screen of trees - the site perimeter is tree lined, as typical Truro lanes are. You can avoid this by pitching anywhere else - plenty of space. If you’re visiting Truro or wanting to access all the county has to offer, I can’t see why you’d stay anywhere else - now I’ve blown it, and they’ll never be space for me...!

Fantastic Location.

Trevellan Farm Cottage
Trevellan Farm Cottage CL is ideally situated for exploring this part of Cornwall. The site is very well kept and so peaceful. We stayed for 6 nights and wouldn't hesitate to make a return visit.
