We are now closed until April/May next year, our exact opening date is yet to be decided. We will be sure to keep you all updated in the new year on our website & through our social media channels. 

We will not be accepting any bookings for 2021 until 1st February & we advise that all bookings for our peak season next year are made before 1st June to avoid disappointment. 

Please visit our website's instant booking & availability toolbar, which will feature on our homepage from 1st February, we cant stress enough how important it is to book your visit during the 1st part of the year, ideally between February & April,  as we anticipate being full by May/June. Also as we are only a small business & a working farm as well as a campsite, it is difficult for us to reply to emails during our peak season, as demand for our site has risen over the last few years.

Short stays (less than 5 nights) can be made directly through our website, for all long stays (5 nights plus), glamping & group bookings please contact us via email after 1st February. We have made these changes this year to see how the global crises that we are facing will affect our business & as we are not in a position (with little time) to give refunds should we face further lockdowns next year.

We would like to thank everyone for your support during 2020 a fantastic season, which brought many tribulations as well as some huge challenges in unchartered territory & unfortunately some unsavory visitors whom to say the least weren't proper campers, so please only visit us if you are wanting to embrace our beautiful site for it's rustic charm. 

We are a working farm, so this means that our site does not have roads inside of it - as it is a field!  We do not offer a 24 hour reception & our facilities are not what you may expect to find at a 5 star resort. - Although they are indeed basic, they are cleaned daily, we provide anti-viral cleaning sprays for each toilet & we will be updating our site with photos of our facilitates in the new year.  

We are after-all, exactly what we say we are ... a farm stay & having some respect for your surroundings & those trying their best to run it whilst adapting to a global crisis & cope with a huge influx in demand is much appreciated.

 We are not currently in a position to take bookings for weddings or offer quotes for such events & sadly we will not be renting our bus out anymore due to problems with infrastructure. 

We pride our self on offering a safe environment to our guests & price our spacious pitches according to national camping average stats.   We are not a commercial site whatsoever, our field is used for agriculture nearly all year around - unfortunately after our 2020 season we feel that it is necessary to point out all of the above as we do not wish to have visitors here whom have unrealistic expectations.

We wish you all the best & look forward to hearing from you in 2021, lets hope it brings positive news for us all.

Warm Wishes

Dog-friendly Camping

At Penwarne Farm we love animals and we know that your pets need a holiday too! Cornwall is a fantastic destination if you are planning on bringing the whole family. 

There are countless dog-friendly walks through ancient woodlands and not to mention miles of golden beaches for your furry friend to stretch their legs. 

Well-behaved dogs are welcome with no extra charges, but we do ask that everyone's pets are kept on a lead at all times as we are a working farm. 

In the interest of children's health and out of consideration for our other campers, we also ask owners to clean up after their dogs.


Found this campsite whilst searching online for sites with a what a view!!!!! Uninterrupted across the fields to the hills and sea with Falmouth in the distance. Perfect location. The facilities were great too, the showers are proper ones and it's all clean and tidy with everything you could possible need. The owner is really friendly and helpful and suggested local things to do. We took her up on her recommendation and visited the ferryboat inn on the river and spent the most blissful day swimming and sunbathing in the gorgeous cove. We wanted to stay an extra night but had to get back but we will definitely be back time and time again.....Perfect escape!   Jo Abraham, 16 Jul 2018
