Amazing views greet you as you arrive at Beacon Farm. The stark remains of Wheal Coates tin mine stand out against the cliffs and views over the sea extend as far as Saint Ives. Beacon Farm is a mixed beef and arable farm and has its own home bred herd of beef cows and calves. The buildings and the impressive stone walls are extremely well maintained. One large, sloping field and a smaller one enjoy sea views but can be less sheltered than the pitches in smaller paddocks which are sheltered by walls and trees. In all there are 70 pitches of varying sizes, 50 with 10A electricity.
This is a truly popular area with walkers and birdwatchers. A ten minute walk takes you to Chapel Porth beach, an unspoilt sandy cove offering excellent swimming and surfing, with caves and rock pools to explore. Saint Agnes with good shops and restaurants is 1.5 miles away by car or you can walk through fields past the foot of Saint Agnes’ Beacon. Beacon Farm has been in the same hands for many generations and has been welcoming visitors to stay since 1927. Two stone holiday cottages are available to rent.
