My place is situated at Chyan Farm campsite, a very basic, eco site. We have compost toilets, a turf roof bath house, a wood fired sauna, apple orchards, a river, woodland, a mud kitchen and a willow playground. This is not a place for people looking for luxury, but a place to reconnect to nature, listen to the owls and marvel at the peace and quiet.
We are close to Falmouth/ Truro/ Helston, 4 miles from the nearest beaches at Maenporth and Durgan, 30 minutes from surf beaches.
The bell tent comes furnished with a double bed, an armchair and a fire pit. If there are more than 2 guests, we can supply an airbed. Please note, the bell tent is perfect for 2 people. It can accommodate up to 4. It is situated in an apple orchard near to a woodland with a view over the surrounding countryside. The toilets are compost loos. The bath house is just down the hill and contains 3 hot showers and a bath for guests use. There may be other campers on the field but outside of high season we are very quiet.
For more info about our land, please check out the Chyan website.
Chyan is a beautiful, natural area. The adjacent community field is a forest garden/ permaculture project with willow playground, growing beds, mud kitchen, compost area, natural play areas. It is a haven for wildlife. There is also a river running through the land and a gorgeous woodland.
You won't see much of me during your stay but you can always phone me if you need help with anything.
