Why stay here ...

Venn Farm CL with its fully serviced pitches is set on a peaceful conservation farm situated on the borders of Devon and Cornwall, in its own tranquil and unspoiled river valley. The adults only site is accessed by a leafy farm track and has stunning views of the surrounding open countryside.

All five pitches are fully serviced and have level hard standings, their own electric hook-up, drinking water supply, grey water disposal point and free Wi-Fi connection. We welcome dogs on the site and have our own private mixed woodland in which visitors are welcome to walk.

The site is located centrally between the towns of Launceston, Holsworthy and Okehampton and is within easy reach of the North and South coasts of both Devon and Cornwall. It is ideally placed for visiting Dartmoor, Exmoor and Bodmin Moor. The Cornish villages of Tintagel and Boscastle are within 30 minutes drive as is the popular seaside town of Bude and the Devon market town of Tavistock. The larger towns of Plymouth, Barnstaple, Exeter and Bodmin are all within an hours drive.

There is a local Post Office and shop 1.5 miles from the farm and the Cornish town of Launceston offering supermarkets, shopping and restaurants is 6 miles away.

Roadford within 5 miles is the largest lake for water based activities in the South West. It also offers fishing, walking and has a lakeside café and gift shop.

Fabulous Easter Break

Probably the most tranquil site we have stayed at, ever. Bird song from morning to night, spacious well laid out and fully serviced pitches. Great dog walk through the woods. We saw what the Beavers have done but sadly we did not see them as you need to be there around dusk or daylight and we weren’t up for that 😁

Peaceful

Had 4 nights here and enjoyed the stay.The pitches are very large, wifi free and good, its the quietest site I have ever been on and the sky is totally black which is hard to find today. Dog walk good with lots of birdlife, we even had a woodpecker feeding from the bird feeder on site. The c.l is worthy of being one of the best in the club. It is based in central Devon which suited us but others need to happy with this as its some 30 mins from the coast. If you want peace and quiet and to just relax this site is the one.

Superb CL

Just returned from 6 nights at this CL and what a great place it is to stay! The large hardstanding pitches were well spaced each fully serviced with a grassed area and picnic bench, really couldn’t be better! This is a well set up site with a friendly owner who is around but not intrusive and the further bonus of wi-fi and the wonderful woods to walk in with plenty of wildlife including those rare Beavers. We didn’t get more than a glimpse of a Beaver at dusk, but their work was evident and fascinating, and we did see Kingfishers and the curious Lamas peeping over the fence. As mentioned earlier do follow the directions and not the Satnav to avoid getting onto difficult roads, although the last couple of miles are a bit narrow this is rural Devon so only to be expected. The payback being complete peace and quiet and no light pollution, so you can see the Milky Way. Loads to do in the area, we could have stayed longer if only they weren’t fully booked. We really look forward to visiting again.

Word's are not enough

Just spent seven wonderful night's at Venn farm. Well worth the journey from Blackpool just to see this site. Attention to detail of all the facilities for the beautiful well maintained service pitch's are second to none with the added bonus of wi-fi . Lamas Beavers and all the rest of the animal's simply outstanding. We have stayed at many CL sites in 20 year's of caravaning but this is simply the best and should be given an award. Woodland work lake bench's for every one large pitch's field's to walk the dog's and enjoy. Leaflet with all the information and important number's you need. And a lovely welcome. Wish it was closer would spend every weekend possible at this site.

True peace

We have just spent 9 wonderful nights at this site, set in the rolling Devon/Cornwall countryside. The pitches are very spacious, with all services available, which helped to offset the fact that the site has no toilet facilities. (It would be worth screening chemical disposal point, both for the benefit of the occupants of the pitch opposite and for those 'doing the business'.) There is a good free WiFi system, which allows you to keep in touch with the outside world if you want to. Take a picturesque wildlife walk through the woods to the ponds with their colony of wild beaver. Also ample dog walking facilities. Out and about the site is within good distance of Launceston, for provisions or you can go slightly further afield to Tavistock - which is a lovely market town, discover Dartmoor or take a trip to the beach at Bude. Make sure you follow the directions from the site and don't take any SATNAV detours before you reach Launceston on A30 - we'll know that for next time, because we will be returning.
