What can I say about the site. It has fantastic views, its pretty level in places with some sloping pitches. We were the only touring caravan on site and the rest were tents and camper vans. There are some caravans that look like long term stays.

There are some nice walks if you can find them from the site and a few farm animals for the little ones to look at.

In the middle of the site is an open area for playing ball games etc.

We booked in for three nights with electric and at 20 pounds a night we felt this a little expensive for the standard of facilities on site perhaps we have been spoilt on other sites. However it served our purposes as we were house hunting in the local area.

When we booked in we were told the owners would not be there but someone would be staying there on site and could help us if required. However we did not see anyone.

I have to say there are a few things we thought needed some attention.

There are some long term caravans dotted about they look very tired and dirty with weeds growing all around them and the vans are discolored.

The shower and toilet block is ok but its looking tired and could do with a spruce up and some modernisation. We never noticed it being cleaned whilst we were there.

Its a nice and relaxed site but we feel with a little more effort on the owners part could make it perfect.

Just returned from a lovely week here. Unfortunately the weather wasn't great but that didn't stop us having a good time.

The campsite was a little hard to find but once found it's easy to find again. We actually got so lost (my sat nav was to blame) that I rang the campsite to get directions and the owner got in her car and came to find us! I thought that was a fantastic touch.

The owners are really nice and helpful and always ready to help.

Campsite is spacious with pitches around the outside and a big grassy area in the middle with a couple of trees to the edge which had a rope swing on each. The kids all seemed to congregate there to play, which was nice.

There is a farm shop operating with an honesty box, serving all the essentials.

There is a nice nature walk behind the site and a field with chickens in and one with pigs. I heard there were horses somewhere too but didn't see them.

The site is on a slope but the pitches are almost level. That was the main site with the EHUs. There is what looked to be a big flat site next to it which I'm guessing is for non-electric tents that can just turn up.

Showers are nice and hot (but not too hot) with great pressure.

If I had to have a negative, it would be the toilet block. In the gents half there is only one shower cubicle, 2 tiny toilet cubicles, a large urinal and 2 sinks. It was all a bit smelly and mouldy around the tops of the walls but still perfectly usable.

Maenporth beach is nearby, which is a nice little beach. ASDA and B&Q are 10 mins away if you need anything from there.

Falmouth is very near too, which is a nice day out.

All in all, Menallack is a great little site which won't break the bank.

I have no hesitations in recommending a stay here.

A wonderfully relaxed site. The owners were so welcoming and helpful. The spot is idyllic - very very quiet with a lovely woodland walk. Thetre is a resevior about 10 mins walk away which has a lovely circular walk. The honesty shop is a great touch as it never closes! a big Asda is just a couple of mins drive away. The showers were lovely and warm and powerful too. The only minor downside was the decor of the shower blocks: it looked like it was being done up though. We would certainly return again, and really wished we could have stayed longer. We would thoroughly recommend it.

Firstly ignore all reviews written prior to February 2015 as the site is now under new ownership. The new owners have put in an enormous amount of effort and some considerable investment into bringing the site up to a decent standard with great plans for the future.

The site is divided into three areas, the main field is a terraced well kept sloping field with lovely views. This field has EHU on every pitch and can accomodate a mix of units. It also contains the main service block with washing up, toilets & showers, currently this is rather basic and slightly ramshackle. Investment in the existing block has delivered unlimited continuous hot water, hoorah, but there is a long way to go before it is fully up to scratch, plans will see this block extended, doubling the number of showers and making a much bigger and better washing up area. There is an upper 'wild' open level field with limited EHU but loads of space and pitch where you like, great if you want more space & privacy. A further area contains a large static (for hire) and a small camping area (great for a large family party), this field is also for exercising dogs and setting off on the nature trail, It also contains the communal campfire which ideally needs to be moved as it is right next to the tents in the main field and late night noise can be a nuisance if you are pitched near it.

There is an honesty shop, very well stocked, a large fridge freezer for campers use and a small games room for the younger children. Bring your own off the ground firepit if you want.

The owners couldn't be more friendly and helpful and seem very keen to invest in the site for the future. We stayed for 10 days and thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this site.

What a fantastic place!

The scenery, company, facilities, welcome and hospitality was the finest, myself and my partner, have ever experienced.

This place is a real undiscovered gem of the west country.

The area is of outstanding natural beauty, the campsite itself is tucked neatly on top of a valley rise, looking for miles towards the helford river.

The campsite does not need the labelling of the standard 'caravan club' award, this place is in a league of its own. And I thoroughly reccomend one visits for you shall not be disappointed.

A tranquil and friendly site. Toilets and shower dated, but worked well and had plenty of hot water.

Location is old Cornwall. High hedges and banks swathed in wild flowers and barely any sound of the 21st century.

Hoping I get to visit again and our dog can't wait to return.

A place to relax and become refreshed.

Weve just got back from a really great holiday at menallack farm all the staff were really friendly and we were made really welcome
It's a small site on a slope but all pitches are level there's drinking water to nearly all the pitches and us having 2 dogs and still being made welcome was a real bonus
This is a no frills site as in no club house no tarmac roads etc but the peace and tranquility make up for anything that you may feel is lacking
The toilets are minimal and the showers are free but only supply a limited amount of hot water but they are free if you go there you'll need to take your own washing up bowl
This is an active cheese farm and they make some really nice and varied cheeses
We met with some campers who had beeen going there for over twenty years and I'm sure we'll be returning next year
