Whether you are touring, camping, glamping or self-catering, we offer a range of facilities and services to ensure you enjoy your stay here at Mena. Mena Farm and our campsite facilities are rated as 4-pennant by the AA, but you won’t find a noisy clubhouse here and there’s no live entertainment. Mena Farm is all about quiet and relaxing holidays.
Please see here for more information on our Covid safety measures on-site and how they impact our facilities and services.

Shower and Toilet Blocks: We have brand new facilities for 2020!! Having fully refurbished our facilities over the winter months, we now have a brand new shower / loo block, with three single shower cubicles, and two spacious family-sized shower rooms. Hot water is plentiful and free. In addition, we now have a dedicated utility block for laundry, washing up, chem waste and grey waste disposal. For those requiring wheelchair accessible facilities, there’s a separate, secure wet room. Please note that all our facilities are unisex, but cubicles are fully enclosed for your privacy, and public areas are monitored by CCTV.

What else can you enjoy at Mena Farm?
Electric Pitches: We offer both grass and hard-standing pitches with 10-amp electric hook-up points. Please note, there are currently no car charging facilities at Mena Farm. Charge points are available at Cornwall Service within a few miles of the site.
Firepits: We all know that camping isn’t complete without a crackling fire and the scent of drifting woodsmoke. Firepits are available for hire and we sell firewood on-site. We simply ask that you follow the rules regarding the use of firepits and BBQs whether you use ours or bring your own. You will find these displayed around the site.
Laundry: Accidents do occasionally happen, so that’s why we provide a coin-operated washing machine and tumble dryer.
Discounted Tickets: We are now able to offer our campers discounted tickets for the Eden Project and for The Lost Gardens of Heligan. Just ask at Reception. (Sorry! This service is temporarily unavailable due to Covid)
On-Site Bike Hire: We offer bike hire at Mena Farm in partnership with Explore by Bike, owned by Martin Jackson. Martin’s bikes are quality Diamond Back mountain bikes from their expert hard-tail range, and he also offers a mobile service for both rentals and servicing. To book online in advance of your trip to Mena Farm, just go to Explore by Bike, and Martin will be able to advise on availability and delivery.
Play Area: The play area is in the centre of our main camping field. Close enough that the younger members of your party can let off steam whilst you keep an eye on them from your pitch, but far enough away that others aren’t disturbed. The play area consists of child and baby swings, a fort, slide, basketball area and plenty of space for ball games. (Currently unavailable due to Covid restrictions – sorry!)
Games Barn: Our games barn is a great place to hang out; watch TV, play games, read books, enjoy a game of pool, or show off your table football, table tennis or air hockey skills! (Currently unavailable due to Covid restrictions – sorry!)
Enjoy Nature: We have around 15 acres of beautiful countryside for you to explore – go for a nature ramble, build a den, search out rabbits, badgers and hedgehogs, spot buzzards, woodpeckers and kingfishers, picnic by the pond, go star-gazing, and enjoy the most amazing sunsets. Read more about it here.
Fishing: There is a large, well-stocked, fish pond on site. Perfect for dangling a rod over the side on a lazy afternoon, or for fishing for tiddlers with the kids providing you have an EA licence. You will have to show this before you can fish, and day fishing fees are applicable. For serious anglers, there is a large coarse fishing lake complex within a couple of miles of Mena.
Camping & Touring Made Easy…
Everyone knows that setting up camp is the best part of a camping trip, but packing up isn’t quite so much fun. How about touring in a campervan? O’Connors have a great range of vans, and their Okehampton site is only an hour away from Mena. Or if you prefer to sleep under canvas, but without the pain and stress of bringing your own kit and pitching up, how about contacting Rent-A-Tent? They now cater for pets too!
Or, of course, you can choose from our range of luxurious glamping accommodation…
What amenities are nearby?
Just over a mile away is our brilliant village, Lanivet, which boasts award-winning eateries, the Welcome Stranger Fish and Chip Restaurant, and The Lanivet Inn. You’ll also find a large Spar shop, post office, hair salon, great community centre and sports facilities, and the village church marks the official centre of Cornwall.
We’re also very lucky to have horse-riding and doggy-daycare available within a mile of the site, and a beauty therapist a very short walk away. If you’d like a massage, facial or other beauty treatment during your stay at Mena Farm, please check out what Kelly at the The Stable has to offer.
Despite it’s convenient location, our campsite in Cornwall has a distinct countryside feel and it’s sometimes hard to imagine that we’re just a few minutes’ drive from one of the county’s largest towns – Bodmin. Here you will find just about everything you may need during your stay. Bodmin boasts Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Asda, Aldi and Lidl supermarkets as well as several petrol stations, butchers, pubs, cafes, restaurants and a hospital. It also has one of the best tourist information centres in the county, packed full of ideas for days out.
