Always a well kept and peaceful site. with a warm welcome!

Our 3rd visit to the site and as always a delight whatever the time of year. The views are great and the site is very peaceful and well kept. We find it difficult to understand why anyone would complain about the grass being cut as it is for the benefit of the units staying on site, especially as the grass is collected unlike a lot of others! Well done Jo and family, we will be back with Peggy the Goldie who loves the space and walks.

Short with grass and customers

Lovely site. Neat tidy and location suited our needs. Only fly in the ointment was grass cutting. Bloke decided to cut it - already short - during peaceful afternoon - arrived to do a circle in the middle away from the caravans; then missing lots decided to cut the edges very close to each caravan - not only strange but intrusive - proximity, noise and smelly diesel fumes from the cutter tractor. So in a flash a peaceful summer snooze became noisy, smelly and pollen ridden - for no good reason. I asked him to stop or stay away from the caravan - wife has hay fever. He argued the grass ‘had to be cut there and then’ - No it does not - consider the customer! He turned the tractor off and walked away leaving it blocking our car and view. It was there the next day when the owner approached us. Her opening remarks were “ He said you would be difficult” - we left early the next day without asking for a refund for unoccupied day. Its a long way to go and down some really challenging narrow roads to be dictated to about when SHE wants to cut her grass - irrespective of her customers wishes or circumstances. Not big on Customer Friendly. Voted with our feet - or should I say wheels...

Response from the CL Owner

Thank you for visiting our site and for your review.  I am glad you found it neat and tidy, we pride ourselves on having a neat and tidy site with large pitches and beautiful countryside views. 

We employ a person to cut our grass and plan for that to happen (weather permitting) around midday or early afternoon each week as we have found that our visitors are generally out at this time exploring the local area.  

We have learnt that our visitors prefer for us to collect the grass cuttings when mowing so as  not to leave them on the lawn to be carried into peoples caravans under foot. This does mean however the cutting process takes a little longer due to the emptying of the grass cuttings. To ensure that it causes a minimum amount of discomfort  to guests that may remain at the site all day we aim to cut it weekly (again weather permitting) so there is not  too much to cut in order for us to do it quickly, usually in less than one hour.

In the fifteen years of running the site we have found guests to be very understanding of lawn mowing as they enjoy the results of  a neat and tidy site. We have never had a single complaint before and therefore we were completely taken aback to have received one. 

Since your visit, if we ever have visitors on site when we are mowing the lawn we now personally ask them if they would object if we spent around an hour mowing the lawn.  I am pleased to report that everyone has been most understanding and keen for us to continue so we can keep our site neat and tidy for both themselves and future visitors.

A very wet and windy cornish holiday

We have just returned form nearly a fortinights holiday in this lovely. quiet site with lovely views. Its just a shame that we have nearly the full fortnight of wind and rain! The outside space around our caravan would have been lovely for our granddaughters had they been able to play out without drowning or been blown away. The site was centrally situated to visit all of cornwall. We will return on our next visit to Cornwall

Very nicely kept site

Higher Eathorne Farm is a very nicely kept site with the grass cut short and the pitches each with E.H.U. are well spaced apart. There are views in the distance of Goonhilly Downs and the English Channel off The Lizard. Six alpacas live in the adjoining field and regularly grazed within about twelve yards of our van. There is also an owl house which was perhaps sixty or eighty yards down the field and we often saw owls flying over our van at dusk hunting in the surrounding fields. The site is very quiet and we heard no noise at all from vehicles at night time. Penryn and Falmouth are a short drive away with supermarkets, fuel and takeaways. Most of the west Cornwall towns and beaches are about half an hours drive or a little more away. We noticed a restaurant about one and a half miles way but didn't try it due to us having two dogs. The owner of the CL who lives beside the site is a friendly pleasant person who greets you warmly on arrival and then leaves you to enjoy the site. We would certainly return when we visit the area again.

Beautiful site

Our satnav wanted to take us up some very narrow lanes so just as well we paid attention to the directions. Lovely spacious site with pitches ranged arround edge to enjoy extensive views. Well maintained and mown with added bonus of watching the alpaccas in adjoining field. There is also an owl box in a nearby field where I saw two barn owls. Plenty of footpaths in the area but some are rather overgrown. Very pleasant stay. Highly recommended.

Quiet, Idyllic, Friendly, stunning views can't wait to go again

We simply didn't want to leave! This is a stunning site, beautifully mown areas and wildlife havens as well, a stunning Bronze Age monument, views to the sea in the instance and Goonhilly downs. The resident alpacas were an absoloute delight and some will eat carrots straight from your hand if you are lucky. Great walks nearby for the dogs. Lovely and quiet location wth everything you need in easy reach. Friendly and helpful site owner. We can't wait to go again soon.

Nice stay.

Had a little struggle to find the place and got on a very narrow lane.  But the site is a nice field with good views and inquisitive alpacas in the next field.  Falmouth is a great place to visit and nice areas around Helford.

This was a nice quiet site made all the more relaxing by being able to watch the alpacas in the next field.  Owners were friendly and helpful.

not too easy to find

I have just spent ten days at Higher Eathorne Farm and enjoyed every minute. Spacious pitches, well mown. peaceful, good outlook. A very nice CL. but I did have difficulty finding the place at first. The owner is a nice pleasant lady, welcoming and helpful. I would certainly reccommend anyone to visit this CL.

A rural CL with lovely views.

This is a lovely CL with views of beautiful countryside, the sea in the distance and an ajoining field of 6 alpacas. The large pitches are well spaced and mown with plenty of room for caravan, awning and car. The site is near to several beautiful gardens. We visited Trebah Gardens twice as the ticket is valid for constant return visits within one week. This was useful as it started raining heavily the first time we visited so we returned another day when it was warm and sunny. We will definitely return to this CL next time we want to visit the area.
