Pennance Mill Farm has been in the hands of the Jewell family for three generations and is listed as a typical Cornish farmstead in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty where you can enjoy a woodland walk beneath 200-year-old beech trees. In high season, skittles, country games and barbecue evenings are organised, all in keeping with the relaxed and friendly atmosphere generated by the owners. The camping area is naturally set out in four sheltered, slightly sloping fields with views over the countryside. There are 75 pitches, 60 with 16A electricity and 12 are fully serviced on hardstanding.
An old mill wheel is a reminder of the site’s origins as you book in at the farmhouse. A private foot and cycle path takes you to the sandy beach at Maenporth, safe for bathing, windsurfing and diving. An hourly bus service now runs to the beach and the town centre. The owners recommend visiting in May and June when the hedgerows are ablaze with colour from buttercups, campion and foxgloves.
