Can't fault it...

'Adults Only' spacious site in nature reserve - you might see some beavers - you'll certainly see the dam they've built! Nearby Launceston has a great free museum, supermarket and pubs. There's Roadford Lake and Tamar Otter & Wildlife Centre nearby... We found that the 'alternative' road directions better, as you don't travel through Launceston... https://devoncl.co.uk/findus.html

Fabulous site

We stayed at Venn Farm for a week and were very impressed with this fabulous site. The facilities are excellent, with very large pitches which each have a picnic bench, individual water taps for each pitch and free wifi. The pitches are well laid out and immaculately kept. Andy is very welcoming and justifiably proud of his CL. The adjacent woodland walk was lovely - unfortunately we didn't manage to spot the beavers but did see evidence of their hard work in building their dam! Birdfeeders are kept full on the site so you have lots of feathered friends visiting the feeders and adding to the beautiful views. The site is within easy driving distance of Launceston and its local shops and supermarkets. While here we visited Lydford Gorge, Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Tamar Otter Park. I'd recommend the Racehorse Inn for meals - very reasonably priced, lovely views and excellent food. We have Venn Farm on our list of sites to revisit and are looking forward to coming back here. If travelling from the North, I'd recommend following the alternative directions avoiding Launceston town that are given on the site's own website - we found our journey far easier than our friends who followed the club's directions through Launceston!

Tranquil

This was our first visit to this site. We were on a three night mini break. We can honestly say this is the best site we have been to and will definitely be back and stay for longer. Everything you need is on your pitch. Large pitches. It’s quiet and peaceful with lovely views and beautiful walks for the dog. Very friendly easy to get to owner welcoming and convenient to get to lots of places of interest. Fantastic. Couple with dog motorhome and tow car

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.

Excellent site

We just had a lovely 2 weeks at Venn Farm, and there's no doubt we will return. Andy is a very friendly man, and while he isn't around bothering you, if you need any help, advice, or just a chat, he is there for you. The site is very well maintained including the woodland walk paths. Lots of wildlife to see, but unfortunately we weren't lucky enough to see the beavers, however their presence was clear to see. We had had a few weeks of drought and the water levels were low, this I suspect was reducing their activity. One thing I would mention for anyone visiting, the hard standing pitches are very generous, and if you want to place your van on the opposite side of the pitch to the water and waste services, then a hose extension, or long hose is needed, I needed around 15 meters each of water and waste hose. This isn't a criticism, more a compliment of the pitch size. There's plenty of spaces to walk you dog. Overall, it's everything we want from a CL site, very peaceful and quiet, no road noise, or light pollution. Thanks Andy, we'll be back.

We had a wonderful say at Venn Farm. The site is very well looked after and the owner very friendly. It has all you need and a wonderful dog walk. The site is very well placed to explore Devon and Cornwall. Highly recommended best CL site.
