Camping at Keveral
Keveral Farm, near Looe in Cornwall, is a community of 10 adults and 10 kids, and has been an organic farm for 40 years.
We offer you a small, eco-friendly campsite, spread over three different locations around the farm. There is a good amount of space between the tents.
You can take a 15 minute walk through the woods to the beach in the daytime, and sit around a campfire at night.
We are open from May to October.
In the school holidays, we are primarily a family campsite, but we do have a quiet area in the orchard for individuals and couples.
Advance bookings only - please do not turn up without having booked in advance. No dogs.
Our Orchard Camping is cosy, sheltered and car-free, and is terraced to create flat pitches.
There is a campfire, three picnic tables and a shelter in the lower part of the orchard. If booked by small groups, you would have these facilities to yourself. The Cornish Yurt (40m away) could also be part of a group booking. It is about 150m from the unloading point (there are big wheelbarrows to move your things) and about 250m from the shower room and Visitor's Barn.
The upper part of the orchard is usually reserved for people without kids (small-medium size tents only).
The Orchard gets the early morning sun, but loses the sun about 2 hours before sunset. It is not suitable for ball games or biking. It is on the way to the beach, and is good for exploring the woods. At the top of our woods is our new picnic spot overlooking Seaton and the sea.
The Funky Field
Our Funky Field Camping is accessible for vehicles, so is suitable for people with big tents and more equipment. It is flat or very gently sloping. There are two shared campfires, one with a large shelter close by. There are picnic tables for most pitches. It is surrounded by trees and woodland, and is good for biking and exploring. The Funky Field gets the sun all day until sunset (not guaranteed - it can be cloudy and wet sometimes!).
After pitching up, cars are parked 50m from the camping area. We can take a limited number of camper-vans. The Funky Field is 130m from the shower room and Visitor's Barn.
The Ridge Camping is in a quiet wooded location, close to the path to the beach. You can often hear the sea at night. It is usually where the bell tent (which can be hired) is sited. There is also a tent pitch (8m x 5m oval) for use only in conjunction with the bell tent (so is suitable for two families).
The Yurts and Bell Tents
The Cornish Yurt has its own campfire, picnic table and shelter. There is also a 5m bell tent which can be pitched in any location.
Yurts and Bell Tents for hire.
The Local Area
The sea is just a short walk through the woods to the village of Seaton. You can walk along the beach and coast path in both directions. There is a choice of cafes, shops and pubs in Seaton and the adjoining village of Downderry. Things To Do
The Visitor's Barn
Our Visitor's Barn has simple kitchen facilities for campers to use (subject to availability), where you can also charge electrical gadgets. (Prices for 2013 tbc. Prices for 2012: for £1 per adult (and/or 50p for use of the fridge) per day). (see FAQs page)
Our water supply is from our own spring in the woods. It is pumped up and treated. It is tested for quality each year. Sometimes there is a problem with the pump, and the water may be rationed. (more here FAQs)
We do not take dogs (there are two farm dogs).
We are 5 miles east of Looe and 15 miles west of Plymouth.
There is one flush toilet and one electric shower (free), and also compost toilets.
Our lane (800m long) is a bit rough, but this is not a problem if you drive slowly.
We can take camper-vans but do not usually take caravans. We have no facilities for chemical toilet waste.
We offer cheaper prices for those who do not bring a motor vehicle.
You can have your own campfires and barbecues by arrangement (see FAQs page).
We hire and sell Rocket Stoves - outdoor cooking stoves that heat a pan quickly and efficiently using small diameter firewood.
There are no electric points in the campsite, but you can charge your phones and cameras in the Visitor's Barn (see above).
There is a good mobile phone signal in most places.
There is wireless internet with your own laptop (outdoors, close to the visitor's barn) for serious use only (no kids playing games), for a small fee.
We can re-freeze your freezer blocks for 50p per day.
We are small enough to offer a friendly and personal service. We can advise on places to go and lend you local maps.
You can buy organic vegetables and fruit (see FAQs page).

You must be reasonably able-bodied to camp in the Orchard, which is at least 200m down a gentle slope from the car-parking and shower room. As the orchard is terraced, there are steeper slopes below each terrace, and steps up to the compost toilets. Good shoes must be worn when the ground is wet.
The Funky Field is suitable for less able-bodied people.
