The perfect escape to the country! Billy is our blue themed, family vintage caravan. Located in a quiet corner, next to a stream on a relaxed and pretty farm campsite in beautiful rural Cornwall. Close to the beach. *Week only booking mid Jul-Aug.*

The space

*Please note week only bookings in peak season, mid July-end August.* Billy Blue who sleeps 4-5 is one of 6 cute vintage caravans we have for hire on our farm campsite in rural Cornwall. Billy is perfect for families, with 1 x king size and 1 x double bed at either ends of the caravan. The beds fold away to sofas with a table for relaxing and dining. Billy is located in its own private area of a separate field to the main camping field, tucked away in a little meadow next to a small stream and is very peaceful. Billy is fully equipped with all linen, crockery and a very small toilet and shower. We include a cream tea or home made cake upon arrival. It's possible to pitch a tent next to the caravan if you have a larger group, just ask in your email. Please note the caravan is not on mains electricity, it is solar powered and has lights, a cooker and a fridge but no working plug sockets. We offer phone charging for 50p a time. See our listing for 'Daisy caravan' if you would prefer a caravan with mains electricity. The toilet and shower is very small but guests can use the basic toilets and showers in the camping field next door.
These caravans are situated aside from the main camping area, in large field of their own. Away from the general hub-bub, offering that extra touch of seclusion unsurpassed, to the best of our knowledge, by any other site in Cornwall. They all have their own outside seating and you can have your own campfire, perfect for toasting marshmallows!
Visitors are, of course, welcome to use the facilities provided to the rest of our farm campsite, but for those who enjoy that extra touch of privacy and tranquility, these caravans offer the perfect countryside retreat.
Just imagine awakening to nothing other than the sound of chirping birds and the gentle trickle of the passing stream.

Costs: 4/5 person caravans Billy Blue & Rosie: £500pw, 2 person caravans Fern and Poppy: £300pw. (see our other listings for details of our other caravans).

Guest access

The caravans are located in their own quiet corners in a separate field to the main camping field but guests can feel free to use the whole site. 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.

Other things to note

Our ethos is simple and natural. Therefore we have no clubhouse or constant traffic noise and we are a real escape from everyday pressures. If you want a developed caravan site with lots of tarmac and facilities then our place is not for you. We do not have WiFi. Caravan guests need to re-fill their water bottles from the main camping field tap if they run out during their stay. At our campsite we offer basic water, shower and toilet facilities and plenty of space to enjoy your holiday. Children are very welcome. Due to the local wildlife, unfortunately no pets are allowed. Please note the caravans are located in a quiet rural field, it's very peaceful but dark and quiet at night so bring a torch.
Camp fires are permitted, in designated fire rings.
Sacks of logs are available for purchase.

Billy is a great van on a secluded quiet site, hidden away in the trees. My only criticism was there was no cream tea or cake as promised :(

Response from Lesley:
Hi Duncan Thanks so much for booking with us. I am very sorry that you didn't receive a 'cream tea' but I was abroad at the time. Our lovely friend Bob looked after the campsite, caravans and farm for us whilst we were away. We felt that asking him to make a cream tea was a step too far. I do apologise and if you come again I will make you a cream tea and homemade cake. Kindest regards Lesley

Lesley welcomed us very warmly,her husband showed the caravan, told about the area and the places that are worth visiting. Daughter had plenty of space to play. The neighborhood is very calm. The first thing that strikes you is the silence and the singing of birds. Kamper is clean, very well equipped.

很萌的房车,和图片上看到的一模一样。这个沙发可以展开所以我们一共睡了五个人在里面。小厨房设备很齐全盘子锅碗什么的都有。很干净所以还不错!就是我们第一次住房车准备很不足,房车自己有电可以开灯什么的,但是不能给手机充电,然后水量储存的也不是很足。不过附近有个露营基地有公用的厕所和浴室,所以也还不错!环境很好,房东人也超级棒很热心。是个不错的房车选择~ Lovely caravan in a wonderful camping site where has many flowers and trees as we as a lovely lake. really fully equipped kitchen and convenience to heat food. Limited water stored but there is a common restroom nearby so everything is fine! Lesley and her husband and her daughter are really nice and welcome, they are willing to help us for solving any problems we have:)
