Features & Facilities

The yurts and wagon all have beds and the bell tent has 2 double mattresses (all with bedding and linen provided). Each yurt has a log burner and all the tents are surrounded by their own bamboo fence outside to act as a windbreak – within which is a hammock, sun lounger, picnic table, fire pit and outdoor seating. The wagon has the same outdoor furniture. The site has 2 equipped under-cover kitchens each with a fridge-freezer, gas hob, toaster, microwave, seating for 6 and a washing-up sink. There is a summer house, too, with indoor seating and 2 shower rooms with flushing toilets. A basket of logs is supplied and additional ones are available to buy for £4 (subject to availability) from the summerhouse. There is a 9-hole football golf pitch on site as well as swings and a swing ball. There is also a duck pond and chicken coop within the farm and you are welcome to help at feeding time.

Activities

It’s a 15-minute downhill walk to the historic fishing village of Polperro where Polperro Heritage Museum (01503 272423) commemorates smuggling and fishing. There’s also a Model Village and Railway (01503 272378), shops and places to eat and drink. Looe is a 10-minute drive (4 miles) or a scenic boat trip away (hop aboard in Polperro harbour). It’s a busy fishing port with lots of shops, eateries, the small Old Guildhall Museum & Gaol (01503 263709) and a family-friendly, sand beach. From East Looe, you can take a boat trip to Looe Island Nature Reserve (01872 273939). Just outside Looe is Wild Futures Monkey Sanctuary (01503 262532) and a little further away (6 miles from site) is Porfell Wildlife Park (01503 220211). The closest beach to site is at Talland Bay (a 10-minute drive away) and the walk from Looe to Polperro passing here is one of many recommended coastal walks in the area on the South West Coast Path. There are adventurous activities including zip wires, go karting and an aqua park at Adrenalin Quarry (11 miles away; 01579 308204). The Eden Project (01726 438003) and The Lost Gardens of Heligan (01726 845100) are within an hour’s drive of West Kellow Yurts as well.

Food & Drink

The 2 kitchens on site make on-site cooking easy and you can pick up fresh fish from Polperro Fish Market on the quayside (a 15-minute walk away). There’s a corner shop where you can pick up a pint of milk but for more supplies head to Pelynt (2 miles away) where there are bigger grocery stores or to Tredinnick Farm Shop (6 miles - 01503 240992) where there’s also a café with recommended breakfasts. The Smugglers Rest Café (01503 272259) at Talland and The Three Pilchards pub (01503 272233) in Polperro also come highly recommended by campsite host Matt.

Getting There

From Looe, switch off the sat nav. You can go to Polperro mini roundabout, then take the second exit (a right-ish turn). After 30 metres, turn right up Kellow Hill. The site is on your left after just over ½ mile. You can enter via the Polperro football golf entrance if you wish.

You can get to Looe (4 miles from site) or Liskeard (10 miles away) by train. Taxis are usually available from both at about £10 from Looe or £20 from Liskeard. Buses and boats also run from Looe to Polperro from where it’s a 15–25-minute walk to the campsite (depending on your fitness and the amount of luggage!).
