Touring and Camping

New for 2020

Our touring and camping site has 30 grass pitches all with electric hook up.  We have erected a ladies’ and a mens’ shower block each with two showers, wash basins and three toilets.  There is also a wash up area.  A washing machine and tumble dryer are available at additional cost.



Primrose Farm is a family run campsite on the edge of the Gwennap, Kennall Vale and Perran Foundry World Herratage Site.  As a farm, our pitches are not all dead-level but are relatively so, our excellent views and location makes up for it.  The ground has excellent drainage and never waterlogs which all helps to make it a great place to come and experience all that Cornwall has to offer.

Wherever possible we allow some flexibility to choose your perfect pitch on arrival, although we can’t make any guarantees. Primrose Farm is very accessible situated just off the A390 outside Truro. We’re easy to find and the farm makes a great central base to holiday from.

We welcome campfires although insist on using firepits to save our grass! You can rent fire pits from us if required and can buy firewood, kindling and fire starters as needed. Please don’t bring your own wood – we can’t guarantee that it will be safe to burn on site.

As a family orientated campsite – the noise of children enjoying themselves are part of a happy campsite but we don’t allow loud music of any kind on site. Quiet is observed from 11pm and all fires must be extinguished by midnight.

We’re pet friendly and welcome friendly dogs which can be booked in online but only if they are of a pleasant nature and safe around other people and dogs. Dogs must be cleaned up after and kept on a lead whilst on site.  A dog walking field is available for off leash play at your discretion.


We have goats, chickens, ducks and rabbits on the farm as well as our own dogs and cat. Cows occasionally stay in out neighbouring fields and we want to keep all animals safe.

As a simple site – we pride ourselves on our clean facilities but you won’t find a cafe or any on-site provided entertainment (you can of course bring, make your own). There’s an abundance of beautiful local walks, loads of lovely pubs and a few takeaways that even deliver to the farm!

Our family campsite is not an ideal location for party goers. Disruptive guests will be asked to leave. Primrose Farm is a holiday campsite and we do not take commercial bookings for working residence, long term bookings or storage.

Hire the whole field for a gathering!

Family group bookings are welcome depending on availability and group size but please email to check availability and hear about the group booking procedure.

Please email for bookings and availability and Amanda or Stephen will get back to you shortly.

We look forward to welcoming you as guests to Primrose Farm Holidays.
