Welcome to Pleasant Streams Farm Camping

Relaxing Pleasure

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 have a new additional compost toilet and shower block for the 2019 season.

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 that provides for all your practical needs. 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. Please see the ‘In the area’ page for more details on local attractions.

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 basic wooden huts and plenty of space to enjoy your holiday.  We have no washing up facilities but you are welcome to bring a bucket and use the hot water from the sinks in the toilets. Children are very welcome but due to the local wildlife, unfortunately no pets are allowed. Campfires are permitted, in designated fire rings and sacks of logs are available for purchase.

“We stayed here for two nights whilst on a road trip through Cornwall, and absolutely loved this campsite.”

A Tranquil Setting

Enjoy & Remember Great Times with us

The lakes on the site are very beautiful and there is plenty of wildlife around, including swifts diving down to the water for food, plus dragonflies, ducks, fish and chickens.


Dreaming of a relaxed wedding in the Cornish Countryside? Our farm campsite makes a beautiful setting for a marque wedding reception. You can hire the whole site for private use or just one field. Our lakes make the perfect, pretty setting for your wedding pictures and we already have toilet and shower facilities ready for your guests. Your guests can camp in our camping field or hire one of our cute caravans for easy accommodation on site. Prices vary depending on requirements and time of year so please contact us for further information.

Plant Sales

We grow and sell beautiful plants at our campsite. Look out for the plant sales stall at the top of our lane or talk to Lesley for more options. We’re especially known for our wide variety of alpines and succulents but we sell lots of different and seasonal varieties. So keep some room in your car for a return journey loaded with camping equipment and new plats for your garden.

“My husband and I have just returned from a short break at Pleasant Streams, we absolutely loved it! We stayed in one of the caravans which was beautifully presented with a lovely cream tea! The owners couldn`t do enough for us. We are going to return later in the year to camp.”

“This campsite was so nice and quiet i shouldn’t review it all or everyone might find out and that would be bad.”
