Friendly, 5 pitch CL campsite
Happy Heath Farm
We are welcoming and probably what some would call traditional and you will hopefully love staying with us as many have done so in the past.
Just give us a call if you need to know more.
Happy camping! Anna and the gang!
We recommend following the signs to Truro on the A39. Turn right off the A39 (Truro – Falmouth) at roundabout (signposted Carnon Downs); in village turn second right into Bissoe Rd. Farm is on the right within 0.5 miles. If you follow your Satnav you will be taken too far down the Bissoe Road. So do look for the Heath Farm sign on your right just after the Doctor’s Surgery.
Once upon a time, Lord Falmouth owned Heath Farm which would have been rented out to tenants who farmed the land and looked after their animals.
The cottage was restored twenty years ago and still boasts 8 acres to surrounded itself in and is well loved!
When to visit?
April & May are the most beautiful months to visit Cornwall as everything is bursting with flower. During May the hedgerows are full of wild flowers and are a complete delight.
Recently, in the past few years May and June have been the driest and hottest months. The bonus about visiting in the spring is that the roads are quieter, the beaches are emptier and generally Cornwall is just waking up to a new season.
In August, Cornwall is busy however, here at Happy Heath Farm we are just tucked away enough not to realise that it is the busy season. After a busy day out you can return to a nice quiet countryside retreat and relax.
September and October are lovely months where the crowds return to their every day lives and Cornwall returns to being more subdued and things all begin to slow down a little. With the more common Indian summers these months can prove to be a added bonus to a quick get away before the winter arrives.
In Carnon Downs we have everything from a great general groceries shop, doctor, hairdresser and garden centre where you can walk up to from the site and get a great cup of tea and a slice of cake.
The two nearest pubs which are traditional and serve great food are the Old Quay Inn at Devoran and the Royal Oak at Perranwell. Many of the regulars to the site highly recommend The Lemon Arms at Mylor Bridge which is a bit further away but worth it.
Happy Heath Farm is complemented on how well it is situated to visit most areas of Cornwall. The nearest City is Truro with its beautiful cathedral and busy shopping areas. Super markets are plentiful and range from Aldi to Waitrose so you are sure to find your own brand available.
Falmouth is a great maritime town to visit which as the sea is right on its doorstep makes a great day out to visit the shops, restaurants, the Maritime Museum or even get out on the water yourselves by taking the ferry across to picturesque St Mawes.
There are so many easily accessible visitors attractions to HHF we could never list them all here. If there is something that you are particularly interested in just ask. We are Cornish after all and know the county very well!
