Lost for words, the biggest endorsement that I can give is that we immediately booked again for two weeks the following year as our main holiday break. Excellent hard standing pitches, flanked by manicured grass areas and small wooden fencing.

Amenities i. E. Namely the `Hut` hosts extremely well laid out facilities all fitted to the highest standard. The new lovely owners are dedicated to enhancing all aspects of the site to even higher levels - if that's possible. Willow - our little puppy, thoroughly enjoyed her time in the secure dog area, plenty of space to run and do their bits. There are plenty of varied places to visit nearby and a little further to meet all needs; only a short leisurely drive through beautiful country lanes taking in the countryside as its best in most cases.

Poole Farm is possibly the most perfect CL on the entire caravan club network. Cancel that. It's possibly the best caravan site on the network. All the previous reviews are spot-on. Spent 10 days there and toured most of Cornwall and Devon from its central location. But the best bits where coming back to the site at the end of the day. It's location is to die for, pitches are great, facilities are brilliant and the new owners (Louise and Greg) cannot do enough for you. Truly a memorable stay on this beautiful site.

This is a fabulous little CL site. Adults only and surrounded by countryside, this provides the perfect, peaceful getaway. We had a huge pitch overlooking the River Tamar with a personal tap and hook up. There is a good sized dog walk/leisure area with a swing seat and lovely views and the prettiest shower room I have ever seen. The friendly, new owners couldn't do enough for us and the whole site was spotless and well looked after. Although a bit of a distance away, we travelled to Bude, Tintagel, Wadebridge, Padstow, Rock and Lostwithiel while we were there and did a walking trail at Cardingham Woods, Bodmin. However, you could spend a week doing nothing at all since the views from the van are outstanding.

Other reviewers have summed up the facilities and ambiance of this superb CL, and I cannot recommend it highly enough to campers who enjoy peace and quiet within easy reach of many of the main attractions of west Devon and east Cornwall, as Poole Farm is literally a stone's throw from the border between the two counties.

Any CL is only as good as the owners, and the owners of Poole Farm are brilliant hosts who have created a site which should be a model for any aspiring CL proprietors. But more than that, they are always willing to go above and beyond to help their guests with any problems they may encounter.

After I fell ill towards the end of our stay, being unable to travel on our day of departure, nothing was too much trouble for them and they helped us to stay an extra night as guests on their driveway as the campsite was fully booked. Fellow campers helped us to move the caravan and various bits of kit, and it all helped turn what could have been a nightmare into something far less dramatic, and we were able to continue our journey the next day with no further complications.

This site is a gem, folks!

We have been caravanners for over 35 years, and have stayed on many commercial and private sites, and many c. L. S too.

Without any doubt whatsoever, this is the most pleasant site, we have visited to date. It is immaculate, and well maintained, all pitches are hard standing, with own tap and hook up. The Shower room and Toilet are of a very high standard, always clean and fresh, and even had towels supplied and changed daily. The hosts are very pleasant and obliging, even to the extent of driving out to find us when we got lost. Wifi is available. The site is a little off the beaten track, though nearby towns and amenities are only 10-15 mins away. The big Plus however is the peace and quiet, and abundance of wild life. There is an adjacent field for dog walking (which is also kept in pristine condition)An adult only site. We were genuinely sorry to leave this 'little piece of heaven'. Price much less than I would have expected to pay for such high standards

Our Thanks to the owners, and we wish you continued success with this c. L.

This was our first visit to Poole Farm CL and it certainly won't be the last.

The site:

Entry to the site is via a narrow lane which some people may be put off by but we travelled up and down it several times and didn't once meet any other vehicles. It's only a 4 minute drive on this lane to the site. On entering the site it is obvious that the owners take great pride in it as it is immaculately maintained and very spacious with a gravel driveway leading to the pitches and dog walk area. There are bird feeders dotted around.


All 5 pitches are very large, (the largest we've seen on a CL) and level. There is low fencing separating each pitch. All pitches have their own electric & water hook-up. 3 pitches are all grass and the other 2 pitches have gravel hardstanding and grass so it's suitable for both motorhomes and caravans.


At the end of the site there is a useful information room which leads to the spotless toilet & shower room. This room is extremely spacious with a large walk in shower cubicle and toilet & sink. A liquid handwash is provided and fresh hand towels are put in every day. Outside there are the usual waste water facilities and rubbish/recycling bins. No facilities for children as this is an adult only site.

Dog Walk:

Across a small bridge is the large, completely secure dog walking field which the owners have mowed a pathway around. There is a small fenced off pond where the occasional duck visits. There are a couple of benches so you can have a sit down and gaze at the views while your dog has a sniff about off lead in complete safety.


Fabulous views over the open countryside, close to the river Tamar and you can't hear any traffic apart from the occasional farm vehicle going by. It is centrally located to explore both Devon & Cornwall so an ideal base.


Launceston is about a 10-15 minute drive where you'll find the castle and all the usual shops, supermarkets & takeaways.

All in all, we couldn't have chosen a better site than Poole Farm CL as it is the best adult only site that we have ever stayed at, and we have stayed at a lot. It was far better than we expected. The owners are always on hand if needed and were very helpful, friendly & knowledgeable.

We will be back!
