It’s all about simple pleasures when you pitch up by a lake in rural Cornwall

‘There’s very little to do here, no bells and whistles’, says Tony Hedges, proprietor of Pleasant Streams Farm with his wife Lesley. Yet this is indeed a pleasant field in which to pitch a tent. Campfires are encouraged, and often the crackle- pop of wood on the fire is the only noise of the evenings here. There is, though, quite a lot to do on and around the site. There’s a lake in the centre of the field, which not only attracts wildlife, but also beckons you to hop in the rowing boat for an afternoon afloat; a summerhouse has books and games for rainy days; and, of course, there are the animals: Matilda, Snowflake, Billy and Gruff the goats, Rodney and Del Boy the pigs, and the chickens and ducks that lay fresh eggs for your breakfast. And that’s not even counting the field mice, owls, herons and badgers. You can always break the tranquillity with a ten-minute stroll to the local pub in Sticker, just don’t expect wild nights and karaoke. Most people that stray from the site do so by day, by biking along the nearby PentewanValleyTrail or hiring the campsite’s kayak and exploring the beautiful coast around Gorran Haven and Charlestown.

The Owner Says

Get back to nature at Pleasant Streams Farm Camping. We offer peaceful and rustic camping in lovely rural surroundings with basic facilities and low prices.  At our small and friendly site you can experience ‘real camping’ with plenty of space, real campfires, pretty fields, shallow streams, small lakes with rowing boats and an abundance of wildlife. Our site is very relaxed; we don’t have set pitches so you can pitch your tent where you choose in our camping fields. We welcome families, groups and couples, anyone looking for a countryside retreat. Children especially love to explore our site, wading in the stream in wellies, rowing around the lake, looking for the farm animals or hunting for the hidden rope swings.

We are tucked away in the countryside in mid Cornwall, a great base to explore the beautiful Cornish coast and attractions from. Our location is very quiet and peaceful, yet we are close to a village and town. The nearest beach is only a 10-minute drive and we’re at the gateway to the beautiful Roseland peninsular with more stunning beaches and pretty villages to explore.

There’s always animals to meet at our farm, on our site you can see wild geese, owls, hawks, buzzards, herons, jays, rabbits, foxes, badgers, field mice, trout in the stream. Or you can meet our friendly animals, our miniature goats Matilda, Bluebell and Rose, our pigs Rodney and Del Boy and our Chickens and Ducks. We sell the Duck and Chicken eggs for your breakfast as well as a selection of home grown plants.

Our ethos is simple and natural. Therefore we have no clubhouse or constant traffic noise and we are a real escape from everyday pressures. We offer simple shower and toilet facilities in a basic wooden hut and plenty of space to enjoy your holiday.  Unfortunately no pets are allowed. Campfires are permitted, in a limited amount of designated fire rings which are first come first served and sacks of logs are available for purchase.  Please note we do not have a designated washing up area but you are welcome to take water back to your tent, so we recommend you bring a washing up bowl.
