What a little gem, we happened upon this lovely campsite. We arrived to a very well kept field the grass cut just right not to short to make it muddy and short enough to pitch.it was very quite we actually had a field to ourselves, the campsite is attached to a small petting farm with loads of extras. It is...

Great for camping but also just a day visit. We visited with a local early years for the day and it was great. The field is closed so the children can run around safely. The range of animals was perfect for younger children. Wouldn't hesitate to return

We stayed with our caravan in early September 2016 for a few nights of very mixed weather. The site wasn't too busy, they were pressured as some staff were unexpectedly away, but the owners and team made a fantastic effort to make all visitors warmly welcomed, relaxed and ensure all the little details were attended to. Yes the shower/toilet block...

We made a visit to Old Macdonald's Farm after a morning and lunch in Padstow so that our 17 month old could have a run around and enjoy some animals and rides. We arrived at 3pm after his nap only to be told they wanted to shut two hours early as it had been a quiet and long day. They...

Fantastic campsite for camping. Farm park attached was free to use for camping families, which my children loved. Friendly, quiet campsite, perfect for young families. Great location, close to some fantastic beaches, Padstow and Newquay. I would definitely recommend a day at Constantine Bay.

We visited the farm with our three year old and whilst there were some lovely parts to it, for the price you pay I had expected more. The farm is maintained excellently and the location overlooking the Cornish country side is fantastic. Mini golf also went down a treat with my son and it's great that these are all included...

This place is ideal for the family. All kinds of activities and a very open and gentle atmosphere. Nice food too! Hole 9 on the crazy golf is too difficult though.... nearly cost them a point in the rating.

Was a lovely site, such a great find. Being a smaller venue was really good, as it was quiet when we arrived, we could go around the animals with ease & my daughter could see & wasn't over crowded. Loved the animals & could get really close & feed them. A few empty pens though which was a shame, because...

This campsite has gone downhill as the campsite showers and toilet facilities are poor, they are always dirty, no one cleans them and in the new shower/toilet block no hand drying facilities and considering are new block look awful! I will not be visiting this campsite again.
