Camping at Keveral 2022

Keveral Farm is an organic farm near Looe in Cornwall.

The Keveral Campsite
We are a small, simple campsite on a beautiful piece of land, away from roads, 15 minutes walk through the woods to the beach at Seaton.
Funky Field Camping: this is mostly for families in the school holidays, but we can often take groups at other times.
Orchard Camping: suitable for groups who may want to make a bit more noise, but very quiet at other times so may suit couples and singles.
Our lane (half mile long) is a bit bumpy, but in much better condition than in recent years.
Our facilities are quite simple and we are not the sort of place that suits everyone.


Vacancies
We have vacancies on all dates.


Liz's Bell Tent
Double futon mattress (bring your own bedding)
Gas cooker and some kitchenware.
Picnic table and campfire.
£40-50 per night


The Cornish Yurt
The Cornish Yurt is probably not available this year.


Shower and Loos
There is one flush toilet and one hot shower (free), and also compost toilets.
There is no washing-up area in the camping. You should bring your own washing-up bowl. There are picnic tables by most camping pitches where you can do your dishes. You could also use the Visitors Barn kitchen for washing up - this is an extra cost.


Ticks
Please note that ticks (which carry Lyme disease) are becoming more common.
The incidence of Lyme disease in Cornwall is about average compared to Britain as a whole.
But around Keveral we have deer living in the woods, and there are areas of long grass in and around our campsite.
Some campers get ticks, so you should check yourselves, especially young children.
Bring tick removers or tweezers.
This could be a problem at most farm campsites, but they probably don't tell you !
NHS: Lyme Disease


Campsite Rules
No music or radios that can be heard by other campers.
No loud talking after dark.
Do not take wood from the woodshed or from the woods.
No wasp traps.


Dogs
We usually do not allow dogs, but sometimes we may have friends camping who do have dogs, and there are two dogs on the farm who are sometimes in the camping.


Water
We have our own spring water, which goes through a simple treatment process and is tested every year.
We sometimes have problems with our water pump and then may have a shortage of water for a few days.
When this happens, we should always have enough water for essential needs, but showers may need to be short and you may need to use our compost loos.
This may happen once a year.


Vehicle access
Our lane, from the road to the farm, is 800m long. It's a bit bumpy in places, but this is not a problem if you drive slowly.
It is in better condition than recent years.


General Info about camping at Keveral

We offer you a small, quiet, eco campsite.

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. (If we know you, we may be able to take you at other times).

Advance bookings only, with a deposit of £30 - please do not turn up without having booked in advance.

We are a quiet campsite. You must not disturb your neighbours with music or radios. No loud talking after dark.

No dogs. (Sometimes we allow friends to bring their dogs to the campsite, but usually there will not be dogs in the camping).

At the top of our woods is our new picnic spot overlooking Seaton and the sea.

In the school holidays, the Funky Field is usually for families.

The Orchard camping can be used by groups who want to make a bit more noise - or at other times by individuals and couples who like it very quiet.

We can usually take groups (but not always in the school holidays).

We have about 6 families from Holland and Belgium each summer (less since Brexit and Covid !). We like Dutch and Belgian families because you are always so quiet and never cause any trouble :)

Keveral Farm is a community of about 12 adults, and has been an organic farm since 1973.

We are a little bit alternative and basic, and this will not suit everyone.

The campsite has a natural feel to it, a bit wild around the edges.

We are half a mile from the road, so you don't hear any traffic.

Our farm lane is half a mile long and a bit bumpy, but this should not be a problem if you drive slowly.

About one-quarter of our campers have camped here before.

Enquiries to


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 is a shared campfire plus a couple of mobile campfires.
You can have your own campfires if you have your own fire-bowl that keeps the fire off the ground.
There are picnic tables for most pitches.
It is surrounded by trees and woodland.
There is space for kids to run around and play - but is not suitable ball games when full.
The Funky Field gets the sun all day until sunset (not guaranteed - it can be cloudy and wet sometimes !).
The Funky Field is where most people camp, and this is where we put families unless it is full or you ask for The Orchard.
After pitching up, cars are parked 50m from the camping area.
We can take a limited number of campervans.
The Funky Field is 130m from the shower room and Visitor's Barn.
The Cornish Yurt is in the Funky Field.
The yurt has its own campfire and shelter.


The Orchard
Our Orchard Camping is cosy, sheltered and car-free.
It is in its own little valley and surrounded by trees.
It 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.
There is a compost toilet amongst the trees.
The Orchard is about 150m from the unloading point (there are wheelbarrows to move your things) and about 250m from the shower room and Visitor's Barn.
There is a gentle slope down to the Orchard Camping, and because of the terraces, the ground is uneven in places, with some of the terraces accessed via short slopes. This all means that the Orchard Camping is only suitable for able-bodied people.
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.


The Yurt
The Cornish Yurt is located in the Funky Field.
It has its own campfire, picnic table and shelter.

There are up-to-date photos here on our Facebook pages:

Keveral has been an organic farm community for 48 years.
You can buy organic vegetables grown at the farm - veg boxes are packed on Wednesdays, orders required by Sunday. FAQs
Our water is from our own spring, and for most of the year is pumped using a hydraulic ram pump which works without fuel (using the water pressure from the header tank).
FAQs
There are compost loos with views.
Firewood for campfires is from our own ecologically-managed woods.
The grass is often cut with a scythe.
Rubbish is separated for recycling.
There is a vehicle charge - so our fees are less for campers using public transport, hiking or cycling (but there is a minimum charge for one night stays).
You can walk to the beach.
3% of camping income goes to environmental and human rights groups, including Extinction Rebellion and Palestine Solidarity Campaign.


Other Info
We do not usually take 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. (This has always been enough, and we have less campers than we used to have).
Our lane (800m long) is a bit rough, but this is not a problem if you drive slowly. It's in better condition in 2021 than in recent years.
We can take camper-vans but do not usually take motor-homes or caravans. We have no facilities for chemical toilet waste.
There are no electric points in the campsite, but you can charge your devices in the Visitor's Barn (see above).
You can have your own campfires (in a firebowl, off the ground) and barbecues by arrangement (see FAQs page).
We can lend Rocket Stoves - outdoor cooking stoves that heat a pan quickly and efficiently using small diameter firewood.
There is a good mobile phone signal in most places.
We have wifi for essential use only (not in the camping).
If you bring a cool box, we can freeze freezer blocks for you (in exchange for the occasional coffee, beer, wine, cake or chocolate !).

We can advise on places to go and lend you local maps.
We have public liability insurance.
