What a cracking site

We’ve just spent 7 nights here late oct into Nov. Despite heavy rain the field was well drained and beautifully cut with no clippings left. Level pitches all with EHU (16A) and freshwater tap. Friendly owners who have been here a long time and know the area and the business. Lent me a gas spanner at 8pm after mine broke. Happy to allow us onto the site early to save parking in a lay-by. Good dog walking field and a 25 min walk down to Cove where you will also find the brilliant Blue Hills Tin Streams (closed in the winter) St Agnes is 5 mins away by car and we can recommend the cornish pizza company there. Local shops and a great bakery to boot. Perranporth 5 mins the other way and Newquay about 20 mins. Miners Arms at Mithian is an absolute must but you need to book. Anything goes wrong with your van the fantastic Aztec Leisure are 150 yards down the road and so far I’ve not found any spares they don’t have. Cheap for chemicals etc as well. Can’t wait to return here again.

A nice site with wonderfully friendly, kind owners

Easy enough site to find, although we thought we'd gone past it when following directions from the club handbook.This was not the case. Polgarth Farm has a wide & obvious entrance with big sign outside.Easier to look out for this rather than the 'white stones' as per the handbook! The pitches all have water & electric which is a wonderful provision! The pitches are all very well spaced out so you're not on top of each other. Pitch 1 is the best in our opinion because it's slightly more sheltered with beautiful hydrangea plants separating it from other pitches, giving more privacy. Recycling was easy & accessible. We didn't use the washroom facilities as these were out of bounds due to covid 19. Mr Parris is simply lovely! Very chatty, friendly, helpful, kind. Perhaps one of the loveliest site owners I've come across! He wasn't intrusive but he was always around if needed. If we had to criticise the site at all it would be lack of, or poor quality / cheap signage. When we arrived nobody was around to welcome us, which wasn't a problem, but with a dog, our first port of call is often a walk & we didn't know where to go for this so ended up walking out onto the main road with no pavement and finding ourselves down some back lanes in the middle of nowhere in not a particularly nice area which didn't fill us with much joy - first impressions & all that! This farm is large with lots of gates & fields going off the main entry driveway so they could easily incorporate a beautiful dog walk with poo bins & with clear & professional signage to things like dog walk, coastal path, washroom, etc. Even the information sheet given out later on into the evening of our arrival day wasn't very clear / a bit lacking. It's perhaps quite hard to explain things that are routine to you so signage on gates, tracks, fields would be really useful. Just a thought! It was very windy whilst we were there so go prepared for Cornish winds if you have an awning & ask for pitch one! There's a great camping shop just 100yds up the road from Polgarth Farm if in need which we found very useful. There are lovely walks direct from the site to the cove / coastal path in either St Agnes direction southwards or Perrenporth direction northwards. Something we discovered towards the end of our stay (unfortunately) was the wonderful Miners Arms pub a mile & a half away in the village of Mithian. Really quaint local pub with very friendly staff & wonderful food. We would highly recommend but you will need to book! Perhaps an information sheet with things like this on would be a helpful & welcoming tool to have upon arrival? But otherwise a lovely site and people & would return. Thank you Mr & Mrs Parris!

Lovely CL

We stayed on this site for 6 nights in September. Easy access for our 4 berth caravan. Well kept site. Water to every pitch. Lovely scenery, footpath to coast. We walked along cliffs to St Agnes one day and along cliff path to Perranporth a few days later. Good camping equipment shop nearby. Perranporth lovely place, recommend The Green Parrot pub. Good Cornish pasties from village excellent. Beautiful wide, sandy beach. St Ives, Newquay, Penzance, Mevagissy and Port Isaac (Doc Martin filmed there), all within driving distance. Good walking country.

Wonderful site

We stayed here at Polgarth Farm this last weekend 21st / 22nd of April 2017 as we were attending the shanty festival in Perranporth. We had not travelled far as we live near Marazion, we really only wanted somewhere to sleep really but we were so taken with the site that we spent quite a bit of time actually on site. Mr and Mrs Paris were just the perfect hosts, the site was thoughtfully laid out and immaculate. We will definitely return and not just for the festival. One of the very best CLs we have ever stayed on and pound for pound the best. Thank you.

Superb

Just returned having spent 7nights at this lovely cl.A pity we didn't get to meet the owner's as they were away but Eddie was extremely helpful and always ready for a chat or give advice. ,Sadly my wife was recovering from a broken ankle and unable to get around much but she found the site very restful and our ,9month old puppy Holly really enjoyed playing in the excellent dog field.We will return.

Very friendly.

Lovely site, nice and tidy.  The owners were very friendly and gave lots of good advice for walks and the area.  Great for walking the coastal path to St Agnes or Perranporth.  Great beaches.  The toilet is part of the farmhouse and next to their kitchen which felt a bit strange but hey ho!

A warm welcome awaits you.

This was our first visit to this site. The site is very well laid out with large pitches which have water at the side of the van. The grass is kept short and well looked after. The owners are very helpful and friiendy and welcomed us on arrival. For dog owners there is a large field on site with views over the local countryside. We really enjoyed our stay here and it would be our first choice when visiting this area again.

Great site.

Nicely arranged site, part sloping. Lawned grass, site kept very clean, hedges trimmed, etc, waste disposal nicely tucked out of the way. Can't fault owners, just right level of checking all ok without being intrusive. Good value for money pitch fees. Very flexible on departure time. All pitches have their own water tap each with own 'hozelock' connector already fitted - nice thought. Ehu's within easy reach of each pitch. Slight noise from adjacent road & nearby amateur air field, not intrusive though. Site easily accessed from Perrinporth/St Agnes road. Great location for beaches, visiting the rich mining heritage, etc. Would recommend to anyone.

Perfect!

We stayed here for 4 nights and wished we had booked for longer.  It is a very relaxing CL with quite a unique feel to it.  The site itself is spacious yet feels cosy with pitches well laid out with electrics and water at each. The site is very well maintained, access easy and the owners very hospitable to us and our dog.  It is a great location for walking the coastal path to St Agnes, Perranporth, Chapel Porth and Porthtown.  A lovely area to explore, lots to see and a great CL to stay on.
