About this listing
The perfect escape to the country! Fern is our green themed vintage caravan. Located in a quiet corner, next to a stream and on a relaxed and pretty farm campsite in beautiful rural Cornwall. Close to the beach. *Week only booking mid Jul-Aug.*
*Please note week only bookings in peak season, mid July-end August.* Fern who sleeps 2 is one of 6 cute vintage caravans we have for hire on our farm campsite in rural Cornwall. All the caravans are located in their own private area of a separate field to the camping field. They have views of the lakes and countryside and are very peaceful. They are fully equipped with all linen, crockery and their own toilets and small showers. We include a cream tea or home made cake upon arrival. It's possible to pitch a tent next to the caravans 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: 2 person caravans Fern and Poppy: £300pw. 4/5 person caravans Billy Blue & new Rosie: £500pw.
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.
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.
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
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.
