 We chose this site because of its proximity to the southwest coastpath. Most of the camping is in the lower field which is where the entrance to site is situated. Its all grass and if you have anything larger than a campervan then its only the pitches at the top of the field that are suitable, 4 pitches I believe, the other 3 sides of the field are for campervans and tents. The upper field is used only in peak season, July/August, and I would assume not suitable for larger vehicles. There is a small play area for children. The toilet/shower facilities are in a purpose built cabin and are fairly new and clean. The NT warden lives on site in a log cabin in the field where the amenities are situated, also where the camping logcabins are to be found. The site is situated next door to the farm so ducks put in a daily appearance, along with the farms new dog, much to Steve the Wardens annoyance, but she is a very friendly dog. We also had an escaped pig wandering on our last day. There is no dedicated dog walk on site but most owners were using the overflow field for off lead exercise, and dog bins are provided. Not quite sure it would be suitable when its being used for camping, or if your dog is a chaser then on lead would be advisable Steve is very helpful and knowledgable, and good value at 20 per night which includes EHU

 Booked with trepidation as we were concerned that a popular site in Cornwall would be overrun with feral kids as we were booking the summer hols period.

No fear on that score thankfully. The site insists on all tents are pitched around the perimeter of the large field and a minimum of 6m between tents on very generous pitches.

I did read adverse reports on the toilets and whilst they are 'rustic' they were kept immaculately all week. There were small queues at busy times but nothing too concerning.

Steve the warden is very welcoming, helpful and a source of information about the area.

The site are upgrading toilets and showers at the end of the year and updating other areas of the site so it will be an even better site next year, which to me will be a shame as it will be even more popular with the camping brigade who expect 5* hotel luxury in a campsite!

It can be windy so if you get a choice, suggest you try to book pitches on the West sides of the field as they are protected by a line of small trees which provided a great shelter from the wind.

Reviewer: Freyasmum 38 reviews from this member


Good location; a few minutes walk from the coastal footpath

View of the sea

Quiet road on no through road

Friendly book-in

Dog friendly

Flat for campervan

Hot water for washing up; outside and inside

Good price; 16 per night with EHU

Cafe and small shop adjacent (but I didn't use it)


Showers were feeble, just about warm enough but concrete floor

Clean showers and amenities but very tired and in need of replacement

No queueing in the quiet time that we visited but I would imagine that inadequate in peak holiday period

Reviewer: Peteandhaze 2 reviews from this member

 We only stayed here for one night, passing through as SWCP walkers, and really have little to add that other reviewers haven't already said.

Perfect location for us - just a few minutes from the coast path: very warm welcome, choice of level pitches, facilities were fine - basic but well looked after but great that NT plan to upgrade them this winter.

Sadly for us the farm shop next door wasn't open when we needed it to be - but worth checking ahead as apparently it would have offered tea, coffee, bacon rolls, local fresh meat.

No light pollution (take a torch for late night trips to the loo!)so great spot for star gazing - and a very peaceful night's sleep.

Would definitely stay again

 I visited mid week and in school term time, so it may be different in the middle of August, but this was a peaceful, well-maintained and organised campsite. There were a list of available pitches for me to choose from pinned to the office door. Steve is friendly (so is his dog), the layout of the site is fine and the toilets and showers were clean (although as many reviewers have said they are rather old). I was told that they plan to update them this winter. The location was the winning factor for me. Just stroll off the site and you have footpaths leading off in every direction. Only a few minutes walk to the coast path, or there are paths which take you back towards Mullion. A winner!

 This site covers quite a large area and takes caravans and motor homes as well as tents. Units are only put around the perimeter making it feel very spacious. There is a very comprehensive and well maintained play area with swings, slides and climbing frames for kids. The loo block is currently a bit dated but scrupulously clean, there are also recycling facilities. The friendly and informative National Trust Warden told us that during the winter the whole loo block and washing facility is being knocked down to be replaced with one that is to their standard, (National Trust Loos are always extremely good) with power supplied by solar panels for all the hot water and other facilities.

Camping pods are also available, I think there were five of them when we visited.

Local information is provided by the on-site warden, who is very knowledgeable, through a well appointed and stocked camp shop.

Prices were very reasonable, though I expect they will increase next year after the site has been upgraded!

Overall we were very impressed with the site and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The surrounding area is wild and beautiful offering quiet coves, fabulous sea views, easy access to local towns provided you have transport. The site is very well situated for exploring southern Cornwall, the Lizard and Land's End and is close to footpaths to Mullion Cove and elsewhere.

Access to the site is through some wonderfully winding and narrow lanes, but what else do you expect in remote, rural Cornwall?

I will give the site 9 out of 10 at present, when the loos have been upgraded I would fully expect a 10

Reviewer: Hawcara 40 reviews from this member

 This site is easy to access, down narrow lanes with passing places.

There are flat pitches for motorhomes with electric.

There are also camping pods and a large area for tents.

At first glance the site looks a bit tatty, but get to know it and you warm to the place. The toilets are dated and the wash up area is outside. However for 14 a night, we had no complaints.

The warden is excellent and very knowledgeable about local walks.

The coastpath is easy to access by walking down the lane to the left of the site. You can glimpse the sea from the site

Mullion has a fish & chip shop (very good) a pub and other small shops.

The site does not have much light, so the stars can be seen well at night.

We will certainly go again and wish that it was open 12 months of the year

Reviewer: Ginster-pies 9 reviews from this member

 Just back from spending 6 nights at Teneriffe Farm. Lovely, quiet site ( apart from the odd helicopters, which sometimes got a little annoying). Being out of season, the top field was closed, and the lower field only partially full, so we didn't ever have issues with waiting for toilets, showers or wash up.

We loved the space - pitches were only round the edge of the field, leaving a large expanse of field in the middle ( big enough for me to fly my power kite without incoveniencing anyone).

Not a fan of paying for showers, but would have been ok with it if they delivered more than a fine dribble. I've heard of a plan to refurbish the shower block, and I think that would be a good idea, as I'd imagine it would creak under the strain in high season.

We had unseasonably good weather, although slightly windy ( from the east). The main field slopes towards the west, so I would imagine it would be pretty exposed during normal Cornwall weather ( south westerlies). As it was, we were in the lee of the hill, which helped us out.

Location is a good walk out of Mullion, so ideally need someone prepared to drive if you want to pop out for the evening. However, it is within easy reach of the SW Coastal path, which is great for walking.

There are loads of great beaches in the locality. We tried many of them. Best to know what the tides are doing, as many of them have virtually no space at high tide. Warden helpfully posts tide times on the notice board on the campsite.

We'd definitely go back here, but some better showers would make us happier!

 Accessed by a narrow unclassified road from Mullion Village and sited on farmland on the boundary of an active military satellite airfield as we discovered! No public transport and no local taxi service make a romantic dinner with wine in the village an abstemious affair for one partner, alternatively an almost 2 mile hike up a steepish hill with a skinful!

Repeat the experience? Perhaps given no flying and during school term.

 Pete [from National trust] told us about this excellent site. Spent 2 days there and had a lovely stay. Good facilities. Site well organised. Plenty of information to help you enjoy this outstanding area. Good walking from the campsite. Good play area for children. Peace and quiet is what this site is about with a distant view of the sea and well laid out pitches. Will definitely go back next time we are in Cornwall.
