We stayed at this campsite based on all the good reviews. We couldn't fault it at all. It was the start of the school holidays and we had plenty of space around our pitch. Each pitch you could have an open fire. The family showers were always hot and very spacious. The kids loved the farm animals wandering freely around. All the children migrated to the barn, made lots of friends and enjoyed playing with the hay bales. The campsite was in the middle of nowhere, but that was the beauty of the place. There was a lovely stream a few mins. From the campsite. The nearest village was blisland, with a well stocked up shop. This is not a criticism, just a suggestion, but on the website it says about bushcraft days for the kids, we contacted the person organising it, but unfortunately he didn't have enough takers. It might be worth putting on the website subject to numbers. The shop is not in walking distance, so fresh bread in the morning would of been good, or a possible honesty box, which we have come across at similar campsites. The owners were not on hand like other campsites, which came with the relaxed approach, so any questions or queries had to be sorted out between certain times of the day. Sadly the blue bus didn't arrive during our visit due the man being unwell (we look forward to that next time)! We will definitely come back here again and recommend it to anyone staying in the area.
Our 3rd visit. Not returned since 2009 and we won't leave it as long next time.
Fantastic site that appears to only attract pleasant campers.
Great for families. Farm walk is brilliant and with small children and a picnic stop can take a big chunk of the day. Camel Trail nearby. Pub at Blisland good for beer. Go to the one in St Breward if you want something nice to eat.
Play barn new addition since we last visited. Still a lovely low key site though. Main negative is the difficulty persuading the children to leave the site for a few hours.
Can only echo what others have said previously. Excellent and well kept facilities, (showers, washing up places, toilets, fridge, washing m/c and recharging points) as well as an outdoor play area and an indoor room with games and information. Five or so separate areas for camping with great views and a lovely farm trail. The local village, Blisland, which is about a fifteen minute walk away, has a lovely pub as well as a well stocked shop, which includes a post office. Nearby is Lanhydrock, a very impressive National Trust property, which can take up most of a day. Ended up staying longer than intended as it was so good.
A fabulous setting with all the amenities that you need to camp. Very clean family sized shower rooms and plenty of washing up stations, showers & loos. A freezer, fridge, washing machine, tumble dryer and charging facilities were available. The best thing about South Penquite is that it wasn't over crowded. It was a very friendly campsite. Settling down to an evening around a camp fire sipping wine whilst the little one was asleep was my kind of holiday. Being greeted every morning by ducks, chickens, turkeys & one of the farm cats was lovely. We took a liking to the ginger tom (name not known) & Missy who took to sleeping on one of our camp chairs for a few nights - made you feel at home. My only negative point to our stay was we weren't there long enough. A lovely peaceful campsite safe for children.
Can't really praise this campsite enough. We loved it! Open fires (on the ground with a ring of stones) yummy organic mutton burgers & sausages from the the farm, chilled out site and like-minded campers, middle of nowhere, incredible views of Bodmin (we saw a wild pony licking her newborn foal just outside the entrance to the campsite, ) great indoor and outdoor play areas for the children, hot and free solar showers and great facilities, no marked out pitches.
It did help that we had the best weather of the summer holidays, but from this location there is so much to see and do even if it's not beach weather. We stayed for one week and left wishing we could stay for two. Can't wait to return next year.
