The kitchen has basic facilities - fridge, cooker, kettle, toaster, electric sockets, dining table and washing up sinks (but there is no hot water tap. Hot water can be heated in the kettle.).
There are a few pots and pans available, plus crockery, cutlery and most utensils.
The charge for the use of the kitchen is £1 per person (including kids) per day, or 50p per day for use of the fridge, freezer and electric sockets only.
The main room, with table tennis and sofas, is an additional £1 per person per day.
You may be sharing the barn with other campers or volunteers. We rely on users of the kitchen to keep it tidy. This does not always happen!
If you wish to store your own food and utensils in the barn, you should bring a storage container with a lid.
Use of the barn is subject to availability, but it should be available throughout the summer of 2018.
Use of the main room and kitchen is available for organised events including overnight use if desired (price on application). The main room is about 10m x 5m, with sofas and a wood-burner.
Organic Vegetables and Fruit
We can provide organic vegetables and fruit boxes for you.
For our current prices, see keveral.co.uk - but place your order through the camping booking email address.
The boxes are packed on Wednesdays, and available Wednesday to Saturday. Please order by the previous Sunday.
From Sunday to Tuesday, a limited selection of vegetables and fruit is available.
All veg is from Keveral or other local organic growers.
Soft fruit is from Keveral, other fruit is imported.
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 may be a malfunction in the system, and the water needs to be rationed. We usually become aware of a problem before we run out, so we are able to fill storage containers to keep us going until the problem is fixed. This happens about once per year. Usually there is water to meet all your needs, but in rare occurrences there may not be water for showers. It is helpful if you have your own water container in case of problems.
There are shared campfires in The Orchard and The Funky Field that you can cook on or relax around. We may be able to provide metal grills to rest your pans on.
You can also have your own campfire or barbecue by your tent, by arrangement with us, if it is raised off the ground and there are no other tents close by.
If you are staying in a yurt, there is a campfire for your personal use.
Firewood is provided at an extra cost, and is a reasonable price. You must not help yourself to firewood nor take wood from the woods.
These are outdoor cooking stoves that heat a pan quickly and efficiently using small diameter firewood. They are available free with the yurt, otherwise £5 per stay, or they can be purchased for £50. They are supplied by Wild Stoves.
Taxis from Liskeard and Looe
These will cost approx £20 from Liskeard. Sometimes there may be one waiting at the train station, otherwise you will have to phone for one.
You will have to pay them about £4 extra to drive down our lane (which is half a mile long and bumpy).
From Looe, it will cost about £12. There may be one waiting at the train station, otherwise there is a taxi rank by the bridge, 5 minutes walk away, or you can phone for one.
