We are tucked away in the countryside in mid Cornwall, a great base to explore the beautiful Cornish coast and attractions from. Our location is very quiet and peaceful, yet we are close to a village and town that provides for all your practical needs. The nearest beach is only a 10-minute drive and we’re at the gateway to the beautiful Roseland peninsular with more stunning beaches and pretty villages to explore. Please see the ‘In the area’ page for more details on local attractions.

Want a more glamping experience? We have five pretty vintage caravans to hire in their own private areas. A retreat from it all! – See our Caravans listings full details. We also have a limited amount of electric hook up pitches for those who can’t do without their electronics, just request one on your booking form.

There’s always animals to meet at our farm, on our site you can see wild geese, owls, hawks, buzzards, herons, jays, rabbits, foxes, badgers, field mice, trout in the stream. Or you can meet our friendly animals, our miniature goats Matilda, Bluebell and Rose, our pigs Rodney and Del Boy and our Chickens and Ducks. We sell the Duck and Chicken eggs for your breakfast as well as a selection of home grown plants.

Our ethos is simple and natural. Therefore we have no clubhouse or constant traffic noise and we are a real escape from everyday pressures. We offer simple shower and toilet facilities and plenty of space to enjoy your holiday. Children are very welcome but due to the local wildlife, unfortunately no pets are allowed. Campfires are permitted, in designated fire rings and sacks of logs are available for purchase.

Guest access

We have 2 main camping fields, one with the toilet and shower block and a small lake and one with electric hook ups. We have 3 fields with 2 small lakes, ponds, streams and gardens to explore.

Interaction with guests

We are mostly on site during the day during the busy periods and can be found gardening, looking after the animals or attending to guests. We leave our guests in peace most of the time but we're happy to give lots of advice and recommendations on the local area. We've lived in Cornwall for over 30 years and know every nook and cranny so have lots of recommendations on things to do in any weather.

The neighbourhood

We are in a little hamlet near to the village of Sticker, which is a 10 minute walk away. Sticker has a picturesque country pub, the Hewas Inn, a shop and a childrens play park.
The nearest town is St Austell, only 2 miles away, where all major supplies can be obtained, i.e. petrol, supermarket goods etc. We are near to both the Eden project & The Lost Gardens of Heligan, a must for plant and garden enthusiasts.
The beautiful cathedral city of Truro is 11 miles away. Mevagissey and Charlestown are historic ports about 4 miles away, and well worth visiting. Fishing and boat trips are available. We are only 3 miles from stunning coastline, beautiful sandy beaches, rugged cliffs and out-of-the-way coves, making us an ideal base for walking, exploring and cycling (Pentewan has an excellent bike trail running alongside a river). The north coast is a surfing Mecca with its large beaches and is only a 30 minute drive away.

Getting around

There's a local bus which stops at Sticker village 10 mins walk away. The bus connects to St.Austell and Truro. There's a mainline train station at St.Austell and Truro which connects to London. The best way to explore Cornwall is by car, or alternatively by bike or walking if you have the legs to get up the hills!

Other things to note

This could not have been more of a perfect place. The location was perfect, just a short drive away from Newquay, mevagissey and Truro, and everywhere else you could want to visit is within an hour radius. The site itself it's beautifully maintained, spacious and stunning, if you love wildlife, open space and beautiful scenery you need to camp here. Very few people on the site (unbelievably) so we had plenty of space and freedom. I will be counting down until my next visit. The reviews make it sound too good to be true but the reality is, it's even better than whatever you could expect. Thank you Lesley, we will be back regularly, worth the 5 hour drive!!!

Lesley was the perfect host- available if we needed her (to buy eggs, logs and tickets to helligan gardens) but otherwise we were left to camp where and as we pleased. Beautiful campsite amongst nature and we will 100% be back next time we want a Cornish retreat. Thank you Lesley!
